Loose the Liberty Spirit, and Soar

Darling Kittens, is it really Saturday again? Moi swears she’s still in last Saturday’s time... it’s like blinking, but not... warp speed hardly describes the passage of time these days... ah, the joys of being an author... and, there are many for this Big Cat... however, reading through BRANDED BY THE TEXANS is darn whoopee fun! Pardon, please, the Kougar’s writerly ego... but then, tail-flashing and slashing, that is one reason she pens... for her own pleasures, and amusement.

And, yowls!!! howls of hotness, last time with Her Insatiable Dark Heroes it was Scorched Eyeball Syndrome... this time, with Branded, it’s a *new* erotic romance author syndrome... yes, it’s the dreaded, if very much wanted ~ Blasted Eyeball Syndrome... and, the only cure is to keep on reading.

Can you feel it, lightly dancing Kittens? That feeling... it seems to be sweeping across our beloved country... it’s whipping around the world at large... the spirit of liberty... the desire for freedom... the flames are being fanned by the wings and breath of the angels themselves... the divine flame we each are, our inner flame is being ignited... WE ARE AWAKENING... the Kougaress feels it to her core... Loose the Liberty Spirit, and Soar!

Happy 4 Year Anniversary! To Aspen Mountain Press... AMP is the ebook publisher of the Kougar’s TANGERINE CARNAL DREAMS, and is one of the favorite publishers of fabtastic erotic romance author, Destiny Blaine.

Here’s a celebratory drink featured on the AMP chat loop... moi can’t resist... yum and hum and summer leisurely fun...

Gypsy Wolf...continued
by Serena Shay

Happy Friday fellow readers, writers and arithmetic users.... ;)

Not much new going on here today so I thought I would post another flash of Gypsy Wolf. This story is proving to be kinda fun to jot down. I have no idea what's going to happen until I sit down to write. It really is quite freeing.

Sticking to your story...

How much should you be willing to change a story to fit a publisher's preferences?

Writing Short Stories-Novellas Effectively

I'm Rebecca J. Vickery and I usually write very long (80,000 words or more) romance novels. You might ask, then why are you blogging about writing shorts and novellas? Good question.

Flirty Friday with Jacqueline Paige

Happy Friday everyone!!

Here's a question for everyone:
What's flirty? Is it in the eyes, the
smile or the body language?

Jupiter goes retrograde in Aries on July 22-23, reverses into Pisces on September 9, where it turns direct again on November 18. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, success, confidence and good luck. When it goes retrograde, however, all that bountiful energy is turned inwards. During a Jupiter retrograde period, all outer materialistic ambitions become less important and indeed slightly harder to fulfil. You may find difficulties and obstacles where none existed before.

With Jupiter in fiery Aries from early June, we may have all felt a jolt of energy and forward progress, however as Jupiter retrogrades what is truly important is to connect with your spiritual center. You will find that you are putting a higher value on emotions and less emphasis on money and material possessions. You'll want to connect at a deeper level with friends and partners and worry less about keeping up appearances.

More than anything Jupiter wants you to find a real sense of meaning and purpose in your life. This is the time to go inward - review - and reflect. New goals and aims should come out of this time of Jupiter retrograde period. Having a vision of your ideal is very important to Jupiter. Life isn't all about collecting wood and drawing water -- the treadmill of daily life. There is another dimension into which you can now move into. It may not be the time to act on your dreams, more a time to gestate -- prepare, reflect, plan, and ask your muse for inspiration. Then by November you'll be ready to move ahead.

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 572 ~

Sylva gasped, holding her breath as if she was present in her body. “Avoiding now,” one of the crew reported. “Return fire,” Benjamin commanded. Sylva watched a slice of white light stream super-fast toward the BP enemy. It fanned out, then divided as the twin beams streaked beneath them. “Aft strike,” the crewman reported. “Damage?” Benjamin asked. “Spun ‘em off course a bit.” Before she knew it, Sylva zoomed toward the blackhole portal. Frightened, yet aware she needed to know something about it that would help Zeke and the others, she didn’t resist. Instead, she scrutinized the pulsating red flares.

Zeke felt transfixed as he watched the blackhole portal on screen. At the exact instant the Wormwood submersible had been struck with their fire, licks of energy twined within the portal’s opening. Angrily the rays lashed at each other. “What the... Great Ceasar’s ghost!” his dad burst out. “Destablization,” Benjamin announced, his concern obvious. “Looks like their craft is connected directly to whatever is keeping that crazy ass portal open and structured.” In that moment, Zeke sensed his Sylva had left the submersible. Panic gripped him like a wrench. Zeke stretched out his mind to her. “Sylva, where are you?”
