Groovin' and Movin' to the Music
Sunday purrs, my groovin’ and movin’ Meows... another authorly whirlwind day on the tame prairie... not so tame last night with the strange storm that reminded moi of a Battleground of the Gods... is this why the ancients could so easily envision Thor throwing lightning bolts... or was it truly a battleground?
Groovin’ and Movin’ to the Music ~ the Kougaress was strongly reminded of how vital music is to all of us during the Aquarian Age while listening to an early disco song she hadn’t heard for a looong time. Yeppers purrs, she was shaking it to the rhythm, just like in the olden days of dancing fever. Tighten it up... by Archie Bell and the Drells ~ 67, 68... brought it all back in a soul-wonderful way. In this KitKat’s opinion, this dancin’ tune stands up to the test of time, and we should all be groovin’ and movin’ to this tune and so many others of that time period. What a super, get-in-tune-with-the-universe party that would be.
NUMBER SIX is still the magic number for BRANDED BY THE TEXANS!!! as of around seven this evening... Yeeeehawwwww... yippie-kai-yay! THANKS and MORE THANKS to everyone who has purchased Branded!!! The Kougar is so happy. And so grateful! LOTS AND LOTS of good good, movin’ and groovin’ vibes coming your way... ENJOY!

Yesterday, the Kougar received a newsletter questionnaire from paranormal romance author, Sapphire Phelan ~ SapphirePhelan.com ~ She is one of the short story authors for the Halloween Anthology that will include moi’s THE TIGER’S MASQUERADE.
Sapphire is an amazing authoress, as well as a promo go-getter extraordinnaire! She is planning a major promo campaign for the anthology. So, that will be another whirlwind ride!!! A welcome one. The *possible* release date from MojoCastle Press is: October 27, 2010.
YES! The Kougar e-mailed her TWO winners from THE ROMANCE STUDIO release party. What a difficult decision!!! that was for one of them... the other was hand-picked by moi’s mommy.

Where did August go?
I remember the first of the month and setting deadlines. Some of the deadlines needed to be reset due to home and work constraints. I've got more of Love's Frenzy to share with you.
From Astrology.com ~
Mercury, the planet of communication, turns retrograde in Virgo from August 20 to September 12.
Three or four times a year, Mercury appears to move backwards in the sky for approximately three weeks. This is an optical illusion since no planet actually moves backwards or even slows down in their orbits around the Sun. However, it appears to move backwards from our perspective on planet Earth, since the planet may be orbiting at a different speed than the Earth's orbit around the Sun.
Mercury retrograde periods introduce a certain level of confusion for us earthlings. As the planet of communication, Mercury rules speech, our listening abilities, negotiations, buying, selling, travel formal contracts and documents amongst other things -- all of which are affected when Mercury seems to slow down. Mercury rules how we perceive and interpret information and how we in turn act and react to that information as we interact with others.
The Leo Sun also opposes Neptune on August 20, which can have a lackluster, low energy, and marginally disappointing influence leading to muddled thinking and lack of motivation as we start this retrograde period. However, Neptune can be healing and very spiritual, and this can be an excellent time to chill out. August 20 can also have the thrill and flavor of romance about it and definitely a time to make your feelings known since we have a delightfully passionate and enthusiastic meeting of Venus and Mars in an exactly aligned conjunction in Libra.
Mercury retrograde periods affect each one of us differently depending on the placement of this planet in our individual birth charts. The effect on Gemini and Virgo signs, ruled by Mercury, will be stronger, but for other signs it is a time of trivial irritations. Being forced to slow down and develop patience can, however, be a blessing in disguise. It gives us all time to stop, go inward and reflect. Mercury retrograde periods can be times of heightened awareness and creativity, and an excellent time for out of the box thinking, which can sometimes lead to startling revelations.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 601 ~
Sylva understood. If this was true, no wonder Bear Feather and Indyra sought their help. If this was true... ‘It is true,’ she heard Coon’s voice. ‘How do you know?’ she automatically returned, seeing Coon before her mind’s eye. He looked a whole lot less grizzled than when she’d first faced him down with her cowboy inside the front room of Zeke’s aunt. Sheesh and holy moly, what? Was she really inside a cyclone of time? ‘Snake and me was forced to help with our psi-sight. Your Earth has the time portal plans all drawed up.’ Somehow, Sylva didn’t doubt that.
Zeke let the scenario before him take hold. Digesting it slowly, he pondered, attempting to pull the bizarre-as-all-hell pieces together. ‘You got me twisted in a devil’s knot, Bear Feather. You mind revealin’ how we’re supposed to help out here? Course, I don’t want time travelin’ capability in the hands of Secret Circle. We got enough troubles stoppin’ their evil doin’ now.’ Indyra pivoted toward him, her hands in a position of prayer. ‘Are you not about to help the men you call Coon and Snake rescue their families?’ Zeke felt his Sylva jerk, almost as if she were flesh.
