E-Publishing Breakthrough and More Storms

Soggy mews from the tame prairie, my earthy sexy Felines... it’s a darn good thing the Kougaress is on the high ground... another storm rolled through and while it only lasted a couple of hours, it was a damn doozy... the winds came up, then the heavens unleashed themselves... the sheets of rains were so heavy, this Big Cat couldn’t see the neighbor’s pasture for a time... moi has to meow-say, she’s never been in this kind of weather pattern before... and while the lightning wasn’t bad, at first, well, after last week’s experience, the Kougaress turned off her computer... and just in time... there was a loud crack and the lightning began.

E-Publishing Breakthrough info, writers-all. Check this article out at the Wall Street Journal. Regency romance author, Linda Blanche, kindly brought this to moi’s attention.

Ginger Hanson: Gestation of a novel

I’m frequently asked how long it takes me to write a book and I’m never sure how to answer because I’m not sure what the person is asking.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 535 ~

Sylva lay in the warm bed, slowly blinking. Vividly, she recalled her astral journey to her Earth. She took long moments to embed it into her memory. The Mother’s final words resounded through her like the repeating lyrics of a song... ‘Do not let BP win on the Earth I call, Freedom’. Smoothing her hand over the warm sheets, and thinking of Zeke, she voiced the Mother’s words, “Do not let BP win on the Earth I call, Freedom.” Fleetingly, she wondered if he would want to hook her up to the same device she’d seen on Coon and Snake.

Zeke knew the pieces to their godforsaken complex puzzle came together, fast. He wondered if it was soon enough, given the hellfire cunning natures of those in the Secret Circle. “It has to be,” he muttered out loud. His dad raised his brows in question. “Got to get ‘em before they get us,” Zeke answered. “Workin’ on it, son.” His father took a taste of his coffee. Zeke followed. No doubt, his father’s personal brew was bracing. “You knew this day was coming, didn’t you?” Zeke held up the mug in explanation. “Let’s say, your mother knew. She sent supplies.”

Now the government bullies are picking on the Amish farmers in Pennsylvania. If this Big Cat had a way to protect them, she would... any damn clawing way she could.
What’s their big crime? Having a lifestyle that works, that isn’t being CONTROLLED by idiots who know nothing about farming, and are on bully power trips.
Instead of going after the real criminals... the BIG HORRIBLE *ANIMAL CRUEL* FACTORY FARMS that are polluting the land and the rivers on such a massive scale most folks can’t even comprehend it... and, on top of that, these hideous abominations of farming are producing very poor quality food and forcing it on consumers... yep, instead of shutting down these cruel polluters, the soulless bureaucrats are doing everything in their power to ruin the Amish farmers, and, thus, get rid of any and all competition for the BIG FACTORY FARMS. Yep, that is, one of the corrupt endgames. Make no mistake about it.
Any day, of any year, this Big Cat would rather purchase food from Amish farmers, than from any grocery story... unless, it’s a store devoted to real organic food and local farming.


Wish Upon on a Blue Moon New Year...
May your most romantic dreams come true...

Branding smooches from the Kougar...

Gem Sivad said...

I read the link on ebook publishing. Thanks Savanna. That is a really provocative article filled with things to ponder.

I also caught with Zeke and Sylva. They have been very busy since last I checked in on them. Those in the Secret Circle are cunning indeed!


Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, you know what, it was an outstanding *happy-making* review from Dark Divas... even though the grade was a FOUR.

Gee, I really need to re-read what I post... course, I was in kind of a state with the storms.

Savanna Kougar said...

Gem, it is! There's more and more good and provocative info out their on epublishing and indie publishing.

Yep, Zeke and Sylva, can't keep a good couple down.

I'm about to put up my Blog Tour pics. Can't wait to see yours!
