Power Up the Love Embrace
Purr greetings, most exalted Felines, yes, moi is all aflutter with excitement as the release date for Branded nears... and she has been doing some snippet-promo-ing.
Okay, on to, hopefully, a more interesting topic. It’s POETRY WEEK at the HAPPILY EVER AFTER blog. The Kougar is blogging this Friday, the 30th. As she contemplated what poem to post... whether to pen one, or go with one already written... thoughts of her unpubbed 1990's romance novella, Rope the Buffalo’s Rushing Wind, began haunting her like a friendly ghost.
So, two things. White Buffalo Woman will be speaking at HAPPILY EVER AFTER. And, the writer’s lesson for today, should you choose check it out, is ~ HOW *NOT* TO PEN a romance novella... that is, if you want it published without going Indie.
What follows is part of a scene between the heroine, Kyote, and the hero, Zake. As is courting tradition in this world, Kyote must attend the evening celebration at Zake dynastic ranch.
Warning: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!!! Authors and aspiring authors...
From ~ Rope the Buffalo’s Rushing Wind
Her heart was a hunt-loud drum as Zake elegantly, powerfully wove his way toward her. Forcing breaths into her lungs, she watched him stride as if she had never fury-chastised him. But then, sun-real, she expected no less.
“Woman Chief Kyote Spring Wind,” Zake velvet-formal commanded. “Your savage and beautiful companionship is mine for the remainder of this night’s festivity, as is our honored tradition.” Eagle-smoldering eyes swept over her face, then penetrated her eyes.
Unwillingly, her breath torrid, Kyote admired the art-superior handsomeness of his face. “Caballero Zake Doliz Vyquerrone, I must accept your courting companionship, as remains our prairie-held tradition,” she pride-cold returned.
Gallant-formal, Zake lifted her hands beneath his lips’ touch. Kyote’s fingers ice-numbed. Her heart beat-quivered. Whether it was passion-fright or romance-excitement, Kyote was not emotion-sure.
Yet, as his lips tender-long pressed on each of her hands, it was not her ice fragile fingers that caused shivers to claim her…wild sweet shivers. Prairie Goddess She wind-raged within. How long? How long had she child-to-woman dreamed, cloud-gazing dreamed of this very moment?
Pride-unwillingly, Kyote felt herself transform to woman-delicate flesh.
“How shall I evening please you, Woman Chief?” Zake tradition-courted.
“You could have man-pleased me earlier. If you had brave-captured your lust clawing cat before she snarl-ripped her words,” Kyote temper-blazed, her knees remaining soft romance.
“Instead, my battle-riding wildcat, you have word-railing pleased me,” Zake true spoke, drinking in the untamed fiery sea of her eyes…drowning in the beauty-savagery of her face.
“Dark World roaming beast ” Kyote cougaress-hissed, pulling her hands fierce-uselessly. “Do dare dream I will ever woman-passionate ride you ”
“Mating-brilliant fantasies, my Kyote,” he wind-scorched. Blue-smoke eyes glowed into her. “I have soul-dreaming known them all with you.”
Shock winged through her, a preying hawk. His thumbs caress-circled within her palms…then his thumbs pressed into her passion. The pleasure was soft-violent. Yet, still her soul tempest-spun with anger.
Yes, good and fierce Kittens All, it’s time. *Power Up* the Love Embrace... wrap Mother Earth with your thoughts of love... hug everyone on Earth who needs it with your mental love embrace... and we all need it in these times. This Big Cat does.
With THOSE, who will *never* be on the front lines, pounding on the war drums like drunken mad idiots at one of Satan’s revelries... We All are facing the unthinkable. Mother Earth is facing the unthinkable. The eco-catastrophe in our precious Gulf will be nothing compared to the damage done if the mushroom bombs go off. And, that is the plan of SOME. Those who remain hidden, yet orchestrate the world like evil puppeteers. Yeah, it’s a James Bond movie for real.
So, POWER UP THE LOVE EMBRACE... replace war vibes with love vibes. Or, as it was said in the Kougaress’s oldster generation. MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR. But, more in keeping with the times ~ MAKE LOVE TO A WARRIORESS, A WARRIOR. DON’T MAKE WAR FOR THE ENSLAVERS OF HUMANITY.

Giving It Away For Free
by Carol Storm
I have a confession to make.
Even though I’m a published author and I take my career seriously, there are times when I feel the urge to write what I want to write, and give it away for free. And that’s when I go over to the Fiction Press and Fan Fiction sites.
Moi’s mew-sings ~
Carol, I wasn't aware of those two sites. But then, I'm not that much of a fanfic writer.
However, I certainly understand the appeal and the crazy fun of letting loose... and, I say, go for it!
Authoring to be pubbed is a different kind of writing imo... as you described. It's still you, your heart and your soul, but it's written from a different aspect of you, and crafted in a way that is often more limiting.
Yes, yowls, moi does not trust FACEBOOK!

Personal details of 100m Facebook users have been harvested and published on the net by a security consultant.
Ron Bowles used a piece of code to scan Facebook profiles, collecting data not hidden by the user's privacy settings.
The list, which has been shared as a downloadable file, contains the URL of every searchable Facebook user's profile, their name and unique ID.
Mr Bowles said he published the data to highlight privacy issues, but Facebook said it was already public information.
The file has spread rapidly across the net.
On the Pirate Bay, the world's biggest file-sharing website, the list was being distributed and downloaded by more than 1,000 users.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 577 ~
Sylva felt a strange tug, as if a strong wind grabbed at her. ‘No!’ she protested. Yet, something pulled her from Zeke, away from the sub, and she zipped somewhere fast. Her etheric arms reached out and she nearly mind-shouted for her cowboy husband. But that could have taken his attention off his critical circumstance. Her heart wasn’t silent, screaming for him, saying his name over and over. Zeke. Sylva found herself hovering over her body. In a blink, she felt the bed beneath her. Panting and in semi-shock, she rubbed her hands over the cool sheet. “Oh, God. Zeke.”
Zeke mentally shoved the enemy sub closer to the chaotically whirling center of the widening portal. Transfixed, he watched the implosion spread, eat away the fabric of the BP underwater craft. Aware their submersible gradually slid toward the tiny sucking blackhole, even though they’d powered down to life support, he hoped like ever-lovin’ hell the timing he’d internally felt, was right, and inspired by the Lord above. “Come on,” Jamison uttered. “Come on, stick inside that damn-from-hell hole.” It seemed as if it took another eternity for the dissolving Wormwood submersible to enter the wildly flaring portal. Zeke didn’t breathe.
