The Hot Nights Are Coming...
Oh, Kittens, a look at the weather news has this Big Kitten in an emotional tailspin... so much flooding around the globe, so many lives lost and ruined... wildfires are sweeping over parts of Colorado... oh, blessings to everyone caught in these catastrophes...
Yowls! *Mad Brain Whirl Syndrome* continues for the Kougaress... how about you? With everything that needs to get done, has to be done... keeping up with biz stuff, life stuff... omy-meow-gosh... her head feels like it needs a giant rubber band to keep it from flying apart.
A strange animal occurrence for moi, yesterday... Toady, a lovely plump big toad, has been hanging around lately and gave the Kougaress a fright... she was letting in one of her doggies, who headed for her place to eat her dinner. All of a sudden Toady hopped right in front of us. At first, because the lights were turned low, moi thought it might be a rodent, and shrieked a bit... that is, until Toadins hopped high. Fortunately, doggie girl ignored Toady, intent on her dinner. For some reason, Toady likes coming inside and then returning outside. About fifteen minutes ago, Toady made a point of showing up and hunkering down in a spot where moi could see her/him. There are all sorts of places where a toad can easily hide out, and not be seen. But then, maybe Toady appreciates being talked to... ?

If a zombie takes a class on zombies through out history, would that be ethnic studies?
By Rebecca Gillan
Hi and welcome to your Wednesday fix of Shapeshifter Seductions. Rebecca here with an interesting question about college course loads. Every year, people flood the halls of learned institutions the world over. The reasons are as myriad as the classes available. Long have we joked about “underwater basket weaving” and other odd titles. Some of those odd class titles are real, though.
Stacey Kennedy, paranormal romance author, will be our Guest Author this Thursday, the 9th, and will be giving us a preview of her upcoming release ~ AN EVERLASTING BITE. She’s a Canadian, so let’s give her a warm American welcome and hug.

Writerly Wednesday- Intro to BDSM
by Christa Paige
In the last six months or so, I have indulged my reading appetite with a new genre of stories. It kicked off with Roscoe James’ Orion, which is excellent, and kept on going from there. The story that really provoked my muse to join up in this category of romance was Tymber Dalton’s The Reluctant Dom.

Fun Finds: Fairly Fascinating?
Okay, how many of you Google yourselves? Admit it. Hands up and wave big.
My hand is waving big. I guess I better since I not only Google myself, but also my book titles.
From Astrology.com ~
September 8 kicks off a time of intense activity in the cosmos that will have impact and influence all of us in some fashion.
The day kicks off with the Super New Moon in Virgo at 10:30 AM UTC (6:30 AM EDT, 3:31 AM PDT). Later that same day, at 5:44 PM UTC (11:44 AM EDT, 8:44 AM PDT), Venus, the planet of love moves into Scorpio -- the passionate sign of the Scorpion -- ruler of our emotions and commitments. Venus will stay in Scorpio until January 7, 2011, turning retrograde in this sign later this year. We will all get a little more passionate and possessive about the things we love during this sojourn, and this transit will affect all of us in our relationships on some level.
Then during the late night and early morning hours of September 9, Jupiter will move into the spiritual sign of Pisces -- which it jointly rules with Neptune -- until January 23, 2011 for its final stint in Pisces, which it will not visit for another 10 to 12 years.
Pisces is the sign of compassion, spirituality and creativity. Pisces is imaginative and peace-loving and governs mysticism, spirituality, intuition, our dreams, and psychic abilities. Jupiter is the planet of expansion -- it brings good luck, joy, opportunities, and personal growth. However, it is also retrograde until November 18.
In Pisces, Jupiter is considered to be super compassionate and seeks to get us in touch with our inner self and our souls. The transit should bring us greater inner contentment, and moments of bliss which are not dependent on others. There will be pleasure in giving and in looking within to explore ways to improve our quality of life. However, be careful that your feet are planted firmly on the ground since Jupiter can bring about excessiveness, over optimism and overindulgence, while Pisces can thrown us into the realm of escape and extreme confusion.
Use the energies of this transit to tap into your inner resources and strengths, learn how to listen and act more upon your intuition and be open to all possibilities that life has to offer.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 619 ~
Sylva could hardly tell they moved at all inside the airy capsule. Only the rapid stream of the indicator light let her know they whizzed super fast to the portal. She did feel the slight sensation of stopping an instant before the panel slid open. Before ushering her out, Zeke glanced back and forth. Once, they stepped into the corridor, she heard the hum of the portal before seeing it. The chasm of whirling silver had her hesitating. “How are we getting back?” That question rushed past her lips before she realized it. Swooping her up, Zeke strode forward quickly.
Zeke answered before moving through. “Got it covered, darlin’ mine.” The portal’s whirl caught them, the energy dragging against their bodies at first. A whoosh carried them deeper and the next thing he knew his boots hit solid ground. Keeping Sylva in his arms, he met the battle-ready gazes of his dad, Coon and Snake. “All clear. This way,” Coon abruptly growled. Spinning on his heel, he rushed down a gleaming snake-winding corridor, soon breaking into a run. Lowering his Sylva, Zeke grasped her hand, brought his boom rifle forward and followed. His dad and Snake fell in behind them.
