Branded ~ Dug in like sun-dried rawhide...

Oh gorgeous and gypsy-running Kittens, a cooler sweet summer day on the tame prairie... yippee!!! Right now, the near-quarter moon is stunning in the twilight sky while the sunset is melon and tangerine splendid.

Yep, all is serenity now... but the roller coaster ride will likely be fast and furious this week. Hang onto your whiskers and your adorable tails, KitKats.

Branded by the Texans ~ Dug in like sun-dried rawhide at #2... sorta... the Kougar simply liked that phrase. Around four this afternoon, moi glimpsed the bestseller list, so it could have changed, given all the tough rough competition gunnin’ for the top spot. But, yowls! This Big Cat authors is so HAPPY! And SNAPPY.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! To everyone who has purchased Branded. The Kougar loves ya... ~slurp~ ...and a big meow of thanks to those readers who posted the good reviews recently. Starry magical vibes coming your way, everyone!

Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougar took time to do a bloggie for Lindsay Townsend’s THE PINK BLOG ~ Here’s the beginning ~

Three Star Republic of Texas ~ ‘What If’ World Building

~Sliders meets Bonanza meets the Three Star Republic of Texas~

So how did I world build my parallel Earth dimension for my latest release, BRANDED BY THE TEXANS ~ as the tagline suggests?

Of course, that’s not a question I can fully answer in one blog. For one thing, it encompasses a lifetime of watching Westerns on TV and on the silver screen. And, yes, I went through a short period of reading western novels as a young teenager, Louis L’Amour being the king.

What a Character!-Flash
by Jolie Cain

So for today’s flash fiction topic I thought I’d focus on character. In one hundred words or thereabouts, create a character that I want to know more about: a hero, a villain, a sidekick, a guy, a girl. I don’t care. Just make him or her interesting.

Moi’s Villain Flash ~

The time-wave portal closed behind him as he crouched, his clawed hand planted on the short-clipped lawn. With the scent of prey overwhelming, his muscles tensed rippling his chameleon hide, now reflecting the dark gray of twilight. Disciplined to a high degree, he didn’t obey his savage hunger. Instead, he listened to a nearby teenager’s music scream bloody murder, as he gradually rose upward morphing into a handsomer version of Adam Sandler. The comedian-actor appealed to his sense of humor. Fishing out his key, he strode toward the house his servant had rented. It was time to kill the humans.

From ~

On August 16, Jupiter in high-vitality Aries runs into an opposition with sensible Saturn in Libra positioned exactly across the zodiac.

These two powerhouse planets are polar opposites. Jupiter is the idealist of the zodiac -- the visionary whose eternal optimism makes us feel good. Saturn gives structure, common sense, discipline and emphasizes that real achievements are only produced after careful preparation and planning. Jupiter does not like to keep its heavy feet firmly on the ground, and Saturn hates over optimism -- so be prepared for your moods to fluctuate and see-saw.

This the push-pull energies of this opposition give rise to self-doubt -- emotions will fluctuate between knowing what we are worth and having grave doubts of the value we bring to the world as a whole. We are never completely sure, and need to be constantly reassured by others of our true worth. We may look for approval and prove our competence to the people that matter in our lives and to ourselves.

If praise is not forthcoming, we are dejected, if we get the approval we are seeking, the victory is hollow since it feels like it had to be forcibly extracted. These energies affect us on all fronts -- personal relationships, friendships as well as in our work life.

Use these powerful energies to your advantage -- since you may be looking at re-structuring a part of your life or your business goals. Overall be honest and true to yourself. Be confident of who you are and be proud of who you are and you will not feel threatened. Open yourself up to possibilities, and take steps to grow and improve yourself -- but don't overextend yourself during this period -- since you are bound to face frustrations.

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 595 ~

Sylva wondered if the woman had transfixed her like a cobra, and that’s why she didn’t move. Yeah, she’d always wondered if the snake actually charmed the snake charmer... whatever, here she was. And not with Zeke. Hell! ‘My name is Indyra. I am from a world many light years away. I am what is called a Time Travel Priestess. I have arrived from the future.’ Sylva knew words were there to speak or telepath, but... ‘Why are you here?’ she finally asked. ‘We are here to save our world from your world.’ The man-bear’s voice answered. ‘Please, assist us.’

Zeke absorbed Van’s report... barely. His gut wasn’t ringing alarm bells. Still, why was his Sylva astrally with that off-world woman? ‘Sylva. Sylva, darlin’,” he mind-reached out. “Everything is on record. In the data banks, gentleman, from the submersible. All I need now is your ‘sense’ of what occurred. And what it all means. Zeke, yer lookin’ antsy as a stud wantin’ to breed. You wanna go first?” Hearing snickers of understanding around him, Zeke straightened. “We got loads of trouble comin’ at us from these Secret Circle polecats. Since they’re in cahoots with other Earth groups just like ‘em.”

Oh, darling Felines, bad news about the Gulf of Mexico. Top scientists and professionals state, to paraphrase, that BP has threatened their livelihoods and attempted to buy their silence. These top folks in their respective fields are saying there a lots of fissures on the sea floor and that oil is leaking for six miles, at least. They further say that those horrible, horrible dispersants are being used to hide the oil plumes.
Sadly, so not a surprise. BP is known for lying about most everything. Too bad they get away with it.


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