Fireworks at The Romance Studio & Romance Writers Behaving Badly


From Coast to Coast am ~ Partial Lunar Eclipse

The moon passed through a portion of the Earth’s shadow on the morning of June 26th, 2010 and was visible across the western United States. In this photo, the eclipse was at its maximum, and 54% on the moon was in shadow. The shot was taken from Boise, Idaho looking west towards the Owyhee Mountains at sunrise.

Evening purrs, darling summer-strolling Felines... pinch the Kougaress, it’s been another mild lovely day on the tame prairie, though, there are some serious allergens roaming about that got moi this morning... grrrrrr!

Currently, the Kougar is paw-penning furiously to get her two FIREWORKS blogs ready for Thursday, July 1. Oh, yowsa maowsa, one more instance where she bit off more than she can chew. However, here’s the beginning ~

ROMANCE WRITERS BEHAVING BADLY ~

Thursday Thirteen ~ Fireworks in My Erotic Romance

Fireworks: Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1955 "To Catch a Thief"

As a teenager emerging into womanhood, the movie, To Catch a Thief, made a major impact on me, even though, at the time, I watched it on the small screen since it was a late night TV movie.
~~~
AND! Here’s the beginning of a new scene the Kougar is writing for this blog.

THE ROMANCE STUDIO ~

To Capture a Cat Burglar

The instant Sherissy entered the hotel’s sky lounge, Dolan set his drink down. Surreptitiously, he raked his gaze over the gorgeous woman who had him captured, lock, stock and hard-as-a-rock. The dark ironic joke on him, though, he was supposed to capture her. That is, if he wanted to collect the insanely large private bounty on her.

by Rebecca Gillan

Hi and welcome to your Wednesday fix of Shapeshifter Seductions! This week, I am reviewing "Captive Moon" by C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp, book three of "Tales of the Sazi" series.
~~~~~~

THE MONTH OF JULY from Astrology.com

As we swing into the month of July and officially enter the second half of this year, the Cancer Sun will keep things on an emotional level rather than a practical one for all of us - a time of feeling and connecting.

On July 5, Uranus turns retrograde - as it always does at this time of the year. When Uranus is retrograde, expect the unexpected. Wonderful and startling surprises are very possible. This retrograde may set your wild side free, or it could make a notoriously outgoing person uncharacteristically shy.

The main challenge this month will be around the total Solar Eclipse on July 11. This will tend to make the cosmic energies even more Cancerian since it brings together the Sun and the Moon into a particularly potent New Moon.

Solar Eclipses and New Moons signal the beginning of new cycles in life. This is the time to act and make decisions that we may have been hesitant about before -- not just during the eclipse period - but for the immediate future, since the influence of eclipses can last up to six months. Now is the time to make changes in those aspects of our lives that we may be dissatisfied with. Any change -- however small it may be -- will ultimately prove beneficial for us.

On and after July 10, when Venus joins Mars in earthy Virgo, we may all find ourselves much more enthusiastic, with a greater sense of contentment and may feel more of a sense of accomplishment even in every day chores.

However, the planetary activity really racks up from July 21 when Saturn moves into Libra to stay firmly in place till late 2012. This will be a time for goodwill and greater understanding and cooperation, although it may create additional work and increase commitments.

The Sun moves into fiery, fun loving Leo on July 22 for four weeks and with it comes more glitter and glitz, as well as a yen to live in the five-star track!

Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries on July 23, and it may seem that our forward progress is impeded and things that seemed for sure suddenly come to a full stop. However, Jupiter retrograde periods give us the opportunity to find inner wisdom and expand internal knowledge. Jupiter may also push common sense to one side as it squares Pluto on July 25. Beware of over confidence! Jupiter and Pluto aspects run on a theme of 'might makes right' so you may think you can break a few rules, even a law or two and get away with it. But be careful -- it sometimes bounces back!

The Full Moon in Aquarius on July 26 is enhanced by a lucky trine between the Sun and Jupiter. However, it may feel like a roller coaster ride around July 27, when Saturn in Libra opposes Uranus also in Aries. And just to make things more complicated, Mars moves into Libra to aspect both Uranus and Saturn in the final two days of the month. This aspect brings about accident prone times and an environment that is certainly argumentative, and not conducive to calm discussions or agreements. Mars-Uranus combinations can be explosive or at least disruptive. Mars-Saturn aspects tend to be impatient, teeth gritting and slightly volcanic since you'll only sit on your temper for so long. The best way to utilize these tricky planetary energies constructively is to keep your head down and plow ahead with difficult tasks requiring focus and perseverance.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 549 ~

Sylva caressed her man’s cowboy-virile chest while she panted in breaths. “Enough to give you the rope and let you hogtie me, darlin’ mine.” Feeling wild-hot inside, Sylva leaped at her chance. “Is that so?” She raised her brows in a challenge. After stroking his fingers into her hair untangling the long strands, Zeke quirked a grin. “Guess, I’m safe from your ‘manhandling’ for now. No rope.” Sylva figured she’d lasso her husband with her words. “Shouldn’t that be ‘womanhandling’? Oh, and since I don’t know how to sail a loop like you. Yeah, I guess you are safe. For now.”

Zeke watched his little adorable wife smile wickedly, and figured he’d gotten himself into some husbandly trouble. In their future together. “Maybe, I better train you how to sail a loop properly, so all my studly parts don’t get hogtied in the wrong ways.” His woman smiled like a naughty minx, this time. “In the wrong ways?” She paused on purpose. “And, what would be the wrong way to rope your studly parts, cowboy mine?” Zeke brushed his thumbpad over her lush lips. “Well, rope burn is never good on a man’s breeding stock. Womanhandling, I surely like that term.”

BIG CATS, BEWARE OF *DEMONIZATION*

No, this isn’t about the demons in fantasy romance novels, darlings KitKats. Darn it. Claw it!

Straight fang up ~ Congressman Ron Paul and many folks who live and breathe freedom are being demonized by the CORPORATE MEDIA, and will be demonized over and over again, ad nauseam, by those in the so-called mainstream media and by their enemies in the government.

Why? Freedom and enlightenment are WINNING the battle between before the force of darkness and the force of light. Thus, the dark side is launching a brutal and savage attack aimed at convincing folks the good guys and gals are really the bad guys and gals.

Thirteen fireworks smooches from the Kougar...

Goodbye to June, So Soon...

Oh, my loveliest Big Kittens... a long released breath from this Big Kitten... such a day yesterday... whew! The Kougaress is enjoying the mild sunny weather and she made it outdoors for a bit of much-needed yard work... yowls, the jungle wins... still, some crucial tiny tree removal occurred and moi saw a sweet-looking small snake twined around the branch of the bush beside the red rose bush. Little snake had yellowish and orangish stripes lengthwise down its dark body and as the Kougaress talked to it, he/she raised a tiny head, but didn’t leave the branch... recently, moi heard a very disturbing scientific report that said there are certain snake populations in sharp decline... okay, a whole lot of folks don’t like snakes and it’s taken this Big Cat years to get over her fear... still, snakes are vitally important to the eco-system and one of Mother Nature’s beloved creatures. And, no, moi DOES NOT want to get bit by a rattler!!!

Goodbye to June, So Soon... and moi bets July will fly by... burn, baby, burn... that’s the phrase for July... in both unfortunate and fortunate ways.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 548 ~

Sylva felt herself glisten, not only from the sheen of sweat covering her body, but herself, her being. “Mmmm...” she murmured as they still pressed intimately and hotly together. Their loins remained tightly arched against each other, time slipping past them as if it didn’t exist. Sylva didn’t want to lose this all-consuming *more powerful than pleasure* sensation. If Zeke felt it too, she doubted he wanted to let go sooner than he had to. “I love your strength, stud,” she continued, “your... prowess. That’s the word.” Long moments later, her cowboy sought her lips, his kiss blending their hearts.

Zeke covered his woman’s mouth with his, after the first heart-loving kiss they shared. He pressed more what he called ‘dining kisses’ to her lips and his ‘prowess’ welled up like fresh spring water. Lowering himself fast, he wrapped his arms around her, then rolled them so his Sylva sprawled on top of him. “Mine,” he growled. Diving his hand into her hair, he cupped her head and brought their mouths together again. His wife’s steamy all-too-willing kisses worked his lips over good, along with his libido. “Like what I’m doing to you?” she whispered, once their lungs demanded air.

THE BANNING OF BOOKS... closer than you think...

Oh, it’s so true. KAGAN, the Supreme Court nominee IS for book banning, and argued the case before the Supreme Court. This Big Cat heard the vid of her argument today!!!
As authors, WE ARE ALL IN DEEP DOO-DOO. No, not immediately. And, probably not for several years. Again, an incremental strategy will probably be used to achieve that final avalanche that will encompass most of us in one horrific way or another. First, it will be... oh, let’s only ban these really bad books that most everyone agrees are horrible for these disgusting reasons. That’s where it ALWAYS starts. That’s where it started in Germany under Hitler. Hey, if they can arrest a guy and prosecute him because he asked a congressman via email if he was insane... the poor guy, who did not cuss nor did he state any kind of threat, was arrested under a law that says he was being ANNOYING... well, hell, aren’t most of us annoying at times?

Oh, a terrible side note... there is a Taiwanese ship designed to scoop up beaucoup amounts of oil... like 500,000 gallons or barrels? at a time. Anyway, this super duper scooper upper IS NOT BEING ALLOWED in the Gulf of Mexico to assist with the clean up. Gee, aren’t the Taiwanese allies to the USA?

Well, sheesh and scowls, prez and gov, hey, what’s your problem? Or, do you simply *enjoy* murdering folks, animal life, the ocean and the beaches?

Another Manic Doing-Stuff Monday


After sunset purrs, my pretty and precious Pussycats... a lovely cooler day on the tame prairie... fireworks are on the way and not just the gorgeous sky displays... so, as moi has been saying WATCH YOUR BACKSIDES AND HANG ONTO YOUR TAILS.
~~~
Oh, my Kittens, the Kougar completed the major round of edits for BRANDED BY THE TEXANS, though, there’s still a couple of odds and endnotes to finish up, and a decision to be made regarding whether to place a personal letter about e-piracy in her book.
~~~
Okay, moi got this great idea to do her upcoming Thursday Thirteen at ROMANCE WRITERS BEHAVING BADLY, using the theme of *fireworks* in Erotic Romance, simply because the Fourth of July is this weekend and she thought about the Cary Gant film ~ To Catch a Thief ~ where fireworks are used to symbolize making love... or the big sexual bang... since the movie came out in 1955, explicit sex scenes weren’t allowed on silver screen movies.

However, a word search of her bookies didn’t provide that many sexy or sexplicit lines using the word FIREWORKS... so, if you have a line, a paragraph, that does, let the Kougar know, so she can include it on the list.
~~~
Roars! The Kougar keeps working on her new scene between Katta and Zio, her starring couple in TANGERINE CARNAL DREAMS. She hoped to complete it for her Tuesday blog at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS... however, claws raking a chalkboard... it’s more complex than she realized... argh-yowls!

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 547 ~

Sylva undulated to Zeke’s long forceful thrusts. Damn! He could make her wanton beyond belief. “Endurance stud, yes, yes,” she panted out. Not breaking his beautifully brutal rhythm, her cowboy penetrated her with his blazing gaze. Her pussy twisted with ache, with utter need. “Zeke,” she whimpered. “Darlin’, give me your bloomin’.” Her flesh felt as if it dissolved, then rejuvenated as rapture. Her orgasm flooded through her, sharp, sweet. “Oh, god, Zeke.” Sylva arched high, and felt her body strain at the same time she flew into an ecstatic realm that belonged only to her and Zeke. He groaned.

Zeke speared to his Sylva’s feminine core as she lifted high with her climax. His groan erupted from the fiery depth of his loins. His stud shaft smoldered with a wild rapture that flowed from his cockhead up his length, then devoured his flesh whole. It felt as if his woman’s soul feasted on him and found him to her pleasure, to her utter liking. “Sylva,” he ground out, once he could. His orgasm still lay claim to him, gripping him like the sweetest vise. He didn’t know how long they thrust against each other, as man and woman joined.

Flash ~ The Massage Magician


Sunset greetings from the tame prairie, my Big Beautiful Cats, hang onto your gorgeous tails, it’s getting rougher and rougher out there... of course, depending on where you’re located.

Up front, darling Felines, as the Kougar wrote in Volcano’s Angelic Forecast... the land is calling for the return of folks... the more time moi spends in the embrace of nature, the more she feels and realizes, or knows wisdom that has been lost to those of us raised in Suburbia or in the cities. On this day, the Kougaress FELT the land calling out to individuals. Yes, the land wants your return. If you’ve ever had a yen, a feeling, a need to return to the land, do so now, as quickly as you can.

Postcards from the Road by PG Forte ~ Well, it’s summer and that means vacation. Whether you’re traveling to somewhere new or comfortably familiar, near or far, or merely in your own mind I want to hear about it.

Here’s moi’s flashie ~

The Massage Magician

I close my eyes and mentally compose a postcard to my girlfriend. After all, she set up this appointment as my birthday gift. Dear, Linda, my tension-abused body surrenders to the mauve, perfectly cushioned table. No, I don’t want to see him as he enters. I just want to feel what he’s going to do to me. You said he’s known as the Massage Magician. I soooo HOPE so. As I wait, I listen to the soothing ebb and flow of the ocean. The island birds trill and squawk, the perfect entertainment. I smile and drown in the paradise fragrances.

I hear footsteps, a strong slow stride, and almost silent. He’s probably barefoot. A breeze seems to follow him in. For moments, it plays over the bare skin of my shoulders and lifts strands of my hair. I’ve left it loose. I feel loose here. Everything is enchantment. The sun, the sea, the sky. Walking on the hot fine sand. The tropical blooms surrounding me. I swear they know how beautiful I find them. As he comes closer, I smell him. Lion, I think, because his scent is regal and sun-golden. He reeks of power, the deliciousness of I’m-here-to-take charge.

Something about him is familiar. But, I’m so zoned out and peacefully drunk on this paradise island, I don’t bother trying to figure out what it might be. I notice his steps stop, as if he’s slightly taken aback. However, I hear him move to me. The confidant way he brushes my hair to the side, then eases his hands onto my shoulders and begins a light massage, lulls me into a sweet much-needed relaxation. Gradually, he intensifies the pressure on my shoulder muscles, kneading them toward nirvana. “Oh...oooooh,” I moan. “That is so good. Don’t stop, Massage Magician.”

He pulls the sheet down my back, a sensual sliding of the lightweight cotton. Even though, his touch remains professional, somehow there’s a sense of intimacy. If his massage hadn’t been pure magic, relaxing me in a way I could only dream about, I would have paid more attention to the warning in the pit of my stomach. He pauses, then his fingertips graze the length of my spine. “You always did have the most beautiful back.” Shock drills through me. I launch upward. “You!” My fist shoots for his jaw. A direct satisfying hit, even if it does sting.

Okay, his expression suggests he’s stunned more than in pain. The fucking I-hate-him bastard! I grab for the sheet covering my naked breasts, and glare as he rubs his chin. “Get out of my way, or I’m punching you again.” His large lion-like body is blocking my exit. His gaze peruses my face and he doesn’t move. “You do remember,” he deeply purrs. I boil inside. My ears burn. “Get out of my way.” Feeling ruthless, I clench my hand and wind up. “Why wouldn’t I remember being dumped just before the prom?” Taking aim, I land another punch. Hard.

Part 546 ~

Sylva arched her hips, shoved her pussy mound against her husband’s cock, then stroked him. He met her strokes quickly, his shaft rubbing the seam of her sex with a powerful rhythm. Suddenly he lunged his hips, driving his cock deep inside her. Sylva keened sharply, the pleasure taking hold of her flesh and causing her eyes to close. Fisting the sheets, she offered what he took. Staying on his fists above her, he rammed his shaft into her magnificently. Even though he didn’t verbalize it, Sylva felt him command her eyes open. Their gazes magically seared into each other.

Zeke pumped into his wife as he devoured the passion etched on her beautiful face, as he feasted on the desire flaming like embers in her eyes. For him. Feeling as fierce as a prize stud, he took his woman. Wild with need, he launched his cock inside her hot silky sheath. She moved in frenzied concert with him, her hips a supple strength that heated his loins like sticks of dynamite about to explode. Their gazes melted into each other, but with incendiary sparks that flew back and forth, making their lusty mating all the more combustible. “Sylva, darlin’.”

MEOWSA! STUFF YOU MIGHT NEED TO KNOW ~

“Getting away with murder on a daily basis... Big Pharma”... so says a former insider ~

From Coast to Coast am ~

Ian Punnett was joined by former pharmaceutical executive Dr. John Virapen ~ http://john-virapen.com/en/home.html ~ who revealed the underhanded methods used by big pharma to get drugs approved and to rake in massive profits.

Speaking from his personal experience, Virapen recounted the chicanery he witnessed, and participated in, when he was an executive in Sweden with the drug company Eli Lilly. He explained that they wanted to introduce the drug Prozac to Sweden, because it is a "prestige country" and approval there would help spread the drug to other countries. Virapen alleged that he gave a $30,000 bribe, along with promises of future payoffs, to a Swedish official to expedite the approval process, which normally can take between one and nine years. However, when Eli Lilly balked at giving a 5 milligram sample of the drug to Swedish officials for testing, they denied the approval of Prozac and Virapen was subsequently fired for failing to get the drug approved.

Following his departure from Eli Lilly, Virapen hoped to work with other pharmaceutical companies but was dismayed to learn that his experience was not an isolated incident. He declared that the drug companies "don't care, whatsoever, for people's health" and are only focused on making money for their shareholders. To bolster his argument, he cited the massive amounts of money that have allegedly gone towards drug research and claimed that, in the last 50 years, no medicine has truly been developed to cure any actual diseases. On where that money really goes, he theorized that it gets funneled to politicians, universities, and insurance companies in order to consolidate more power for big pharma.

He lamented that the vast amount of money yielded by what he called the "pharmaceutical industrial complex" has resulted in the field being virtually impervious to true oversight. As an example of this power, Virapen cited the fines that have been levied against pharmaceutical companies for illegal marketing, a dangerous practice that can result in the death of misprescribed patients. According to him, the profits from the sale of those drugs far outweigh the imposed penalties. Therefore, the pharmaceutical companies will pay the fines so that then they can keep selling medicine, rather than take the battle to court and risk having the sale of the drug halted while the case is pending.
~~~

ALSO! Can you imagine this latest new profession: Infant Psychiatry... why, yes, it’s all too real in Germany... wait, w-a-i-t for it ... yep, it’s coming to America... betcha!
~~~~~~
Guess what? The Pentagon is about to take over the Internet. Yep, the government’s KILL SWITCH is almost in place. This means, most likely, a *slow* and *incremental* death for freedom of speech and freedom of commerce on the world wide web. That is, shut down the Internet for a short time. Get rid of THOSE they don’t want inhabiting the world wide webbie. Yeppers, yowsers, it’s the ole frog in a pot syndrome... throw him into a boiling pot of water and froggie jumps out... but put him in a nice warm water and keep turning up the heat... well, a boiled and dead frog.

Not only that, Alternative Media will now be taxed to save the so-called mainstream media. Yep, the ESTABLISHMENT is now about to *tax* FREE SPEECH to pay for their propa-genda.

Indeed, the encroachment of Tyranny quickens and spreads like an aggressive cancer across our beloved country and, yes, across the world, in general. Watch your back sides, my darling Big Cats.

AND! Most beloved Felines, if you live in a major city, now is the time to consider moving to a smaller community, or onto an acreage. Now, is the time to return to the land. As the Depression worsens, the big cities will erupt and everything will break down. If you know about a good community of like-minded folks, make every effort to join with them.

Massaging smooch from the Kougar...

Confessions of a Not-Fashionista

Jean Shrimpton, one of the Kougaress’s fave models in her teenage years.

Sunny hot purrs, my oh-so cute KitKats... are you ‘feeling’ life more and more? That is, whatever is happening around you ~ can you FEEL it more vividly? It feels like to this Big Cat that there’s been a shift in awareness, or consciousness on beloved Mother Earth. It may be what you sensed before, like a friend’s emotions, will be sharply felt or known more pouncing-quickly... there could be a deeper experiential level in the human psyche and human consciousness now.

Confessions of a Not-Fashionista... at one time, the Kougaress was quite the fashion lover and she created many *at the time* incredible super-extravaganza outfits... also, some sexy-daring garments she loved wearing, but drew the stick-in-the-mud censure of some.

Nowadays, due to circumstances so beyond her control it could be considered tragic, this Big Cat girl no longer has the means or the life zest to continue her once flamboyant fashionable ways. Still, by today’s standards, moi would *not* have been considered a fashionista. Why? Brand names, the latest must-haves, the silly exorbitant cost... well, who meow cares about living that kind of over-shallow lifestyle... NOT this Kitty Strutting girl. She has no taste for it. The stench of rotten fish surrounds it.

There’s over the top fashions ~ CHER ~, then there’s over the top fashions ~ KATE MOSS STYLE ~ meaning the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly... while some of the current fashion trends are appealing and alluring to moi, a lot of the trends are just plain ridiculous and gawdawful not-glamorous UGLY! And, maows! This means what the celebs are wearing... at least, what the Kougaress glimpses doing internet searches and standing in the grocery line... ugh! Rip and shred. What are they thinking? Oh, right, vacuous doesn’t include actual thought, does it?

In a way, this has always been true throughout most of known human history. However, fashion extremes as ‘ over excess’ always exacts a huge price.. It begs to be stupid, so stupid it’s supposed to be the IN thing, the ULTRA-COOL thing. For an apt illustration, just take a look at Linda Banche’s blog about Macaroni ~ Macaroni! And I Don't Mean Pasta by Linda Banche~ historicalhussies.blogspot.com/2010/06/macaroni-and-i-dont-mean-p\asta.html ~

Tail-flicking well, as often happens, a little discussion broke out on Lindsay Townsend’s chat loop about what else? Men and fashion. Here’s how it went ~

In lindsaysromanticsgroup@yahoogroups.com, Lindsay wrote: great article, Linda! In some ways I think it's a shame men in the west don't get to peacock more in their dress, but maybe not with THOSE wigs! (Would you fancy writing about a bloke who dressed that way?)
Best lindsay

The Kougaress wrote: To comment further, I love men in casual wear. However, I also love them in formal wear. Heck, I absolutely loved them wearing velvet and satin Nehru jackets, plus all that delicious suede with the fringe... talk about peacock handsomeness.
Savanna

Then, Lindsay wrote: Savanna, I love male tribal gear and headdresses. And greatcoats. And the bass singer Ruggerio Raimondi sang the role of Scarpia in a grey frockcoat in the morning and a fancy embroidered gold braid number in the evening. Delicious!
Best lindsay

The Kougaress replied: Absolutely delicious! ~ Savanna

So, Beautiful Big Cats... what is your ‘fashion passion’ attire for men? What turns your meow into a seductive purr?
~~~~~~

Oh! And for more seductive purring... the Kougar got her e-paperwork done and sent to MojoCastle Press for antho short story ~ THE TIGER’S MASQUERADE ~ Here’s the blurbie she came up with, for now. Improvements are probably needed.

Blurb ~

Stacy wasn’t looking for a tiger-man to erotically and exotically fill her tank, then steal her heart. That is, until the Halloween ‘Call of the Wild Masquerade’ ball. But, what kind of tiger does she have by the tail?

Zyrru wasn’t looking for a human woman to un-tame his fiercest passions, and alter his royal life forever. After all, he’s only vacationing on Earth, and is almost engaged to The Princess. But, her rosefire scent is irresistible.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 545 ~


Sylva burned, hot as mid-summer Chicago during a heat wave. “Zeke.” Suddenly feverish with need, she stroked his shoulders. “Please.” Nipping his lower lip, she kissed him hard, then assaulted his mouth with more fiery kisses. “Can you?” she asked, once they paused. “Do you need to return now?” Their harsh fast breaths seemed to fill the room. Unable to wait for his answer, Sylva fervently roved her hands over her cowboy and attacked his lips again with kisses that were sumptuous, fierce. Tearing their mouths apart, Zeke launched upwards. In record time, he shoved his pants down, and off.

Zeke leapt into the smoldering flames deep in her eyes. He pounced above her feeling carnally ferocious as a mountain lion. As she lay supine beneath him, he dipped his head and trapped her mouth, wild as any beast for his mate. Remaining on his fists, he punished her lips with his passion. Both of them turned primal, their kisses a raw and powerful tangling of the mouths, then their tongues. “God, Sylva.” His growled words came from his primitive side. They stared at each other then, but more, their gazes mated, and wanted for several moments. “Zeke, do it.”

Lunar Eclipse Intense


Pic from ~ dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1289162/Lightning-strikes-Willis-Tower-Trump-Tower-Chicago.html ~ Lightning streams across the sky towards downtown last night as one bolt appears to strike the Willis Tower, left, once again

No, obviously, not an eclipse, but this pic was too just too absolutely amazing. Elevenish evening meows, my pretty and sassy-sexy KitKats... it’s been a strange and weirdly intense day for the Kougaress. Much earlier she saw one of those adorable little blue-feathered birdies with a red-blush breast. Instead of immediately flying off, Birdie hung around for moments as moi talked to him.

This Big Cat author has also gotten a lot of editing done on BRANDED BY THE TEXANS and some seriously good penning accomplished on a new scene between Katta and Zio, her heroine and hero in TANGERINE CARNAL DREAMS. Though, that wasn’t finished in time for the purpose she began writing it for... still, later is always good, and will work.

While other authorly biz was taken care of satisfactorily, as well... today was also a major downer. Beloved Big Kittens, it is so, so bad down in the Gulf area. Much, exponentially much worse than what corporate media is telling you. That is, if you watch, read or listen to the bought-off bastards. This Big Cat heard several personal accounts from those in the REAL know, one of them being the Mayor of Orange Beach, Alabama ~ Tony Kennon.

Also, the white sand beaches of Pensacola, Florida, are boiling as if huge vats of acid are being poured on them. Plus, the Feds are refusing to allow locals to berm off precious beach areas and animal breeding areas.

Those who are running BP are soulless reprehensible monsters!!! Nearly everything they’re doing is for the sake of a massive cover up. Nearly everything they’re saying is a pack of absolute despicable lies.

Please, please! GET OUT!!! If you’re in the Gulf of Mexico area consider a way to leave immediately!!! This is a *never-ending nightmare* according to the Mayor of Orange Beach, who also stated he *feared the federal government*. Still, he is doing everything he can for his people while BP and the Feds are *making certain* [moi’s personal belief] folks lives are ruined, not to mention their health.
~~~~~~

It is LUNAR ECLIPSE INTENSE TO THE MAX OR MAXIMUM, right now ~ For more about the partial lunar eclipse on June 26th, and the astrological dynamics, see below. That being yowled, this Big Cat feels like everything is being wound up so tight, and is becoming SO RADICALLY INTENSE at every level and in every part of the world, that a major, or major social explosions are eminent. More and more, folks are fed up, and they should be.

This current time can, in part, be compared to the French Revolution... where the haves are telling the have nots to eat cake. Only now the shrimp cakes are either dead, dying or contaminated.

AUTHORS/ASPIRING AUTHORS!!!

Author John Edgar Wideman on self-publishing
Posted by: "LK Hunsaker"

I thought some of you might find this interesting. Note that he isn't
using Lulu's normal distribution that most of us could afford, but their
concierge service (according to Writers Beware) which is quite
expensive. Still, he makes lots of great points and its nice to see big
name authors supporting the benefits of self-publishing.

Loved this quote, especially, about the publishing industry:

"It has nothing to do with art, it has nothing to do with quality and it
has nothing to do with the seriousness of literature. Now, that world
has been pretty good to me, but it's not very good for the country, if
you want literature to do more than sell soap and tell lies."

From Astrology.com

On June 26, we have a powerful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse with the Sun in Cancer and the Moon exactly opposite in Capricorn. Eclipses come twice a year, and they always come in pairs ~ a lunar eclipse followed by a solar eclipse ~ a fortnight later. The corresponding solar eclipse falls on July 11. This partial lunar eclipse will be visible over Western US and Canada, Alaska, Antarctica, Australia, the Middle East and East Asia.

Once upon a time, eclipses were feared as harbingers of doom but today they are recognized as important staging points in our path of personal development when ~ if you choose ~ we can become more fully yourselves. Eclipses, however, have proven to coincide with difficult events in the outside world as well.

During a solar eclipse, the Moon is positioned in between the Sun and Earth, cutting of the light of the Sun. A solar eclipse always occurs during a new Moon and is considered to denote the start or beginning of something new in our lives. A lunar eclipse, on the other hand, occurs when the Earth is positioned between the Moon and the Sun, cutting off the light of the Sun from the Moon. Lunar eclipses always occur during a full Moon and are supposed to mark the end of something in life.

What a Lunar eclipse requires is that you balance two opposites in your life. For example you need to be a strong individual as well as be compromising in a relationship. You need to be of service to yourself as well as to others. You need to give space in your life to friends as well as to loved ones. You need to protect your own security as well as co-operate over money. You need to pay attention to detail as well as keeping the big picture in mind.

This particular lunar eclipse aligns with other major celestial influences, with seven planets participating and it is going to carry a big punch! The eclipsed Moon will be exactly conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn against a backdrop of a square between Uranus and Pluto, as well as squares with Jupiter and Uranus both in Aries and Saturn in Virgo also in a square alignment forming a Grand Cross in astrology, which is a big event. Jupiter may help to ease the strain, bringing a ray of sunshine and some lucky breaks.

But be prepared ~ things may get intense and you may get more than one hint about areas in your life that need radical changes.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 544 ~

Sylva wept harder because her cowboy hadn’t rejected her emotional need for him. “It’s okay,” she mumbled through her tears. God forbid, he believe he’d done something wrong when he’d done something so right, she cried over it. “Okay?” he purred near her ear. “I’m okay.” Sylva pressed her wet lips against his shoulder, kissing him. Zeke nuzzled the rim of her ear, and, somehow, their lips found each other. Tenderly, they lingered long kisses against each others’ mouths. The sweet continuous tangle of their lips did Sylva’s insides good. Stroking her hands into his hair she kissed him fervently.

Zeke counted himself one of the luckiest men alive. Like parched land, his bride thirstily soaked in the rain of his love for her. She accepted his gentle kisses as if they restored her spirit. Now, she ramped up their passion, her lips like an eager vixen seeking every way to tempt him. Roving his hands over delectable little back, Zeke let his sexy hot filly take the lead. He realized part of her enthusiasm came from her gratitude because he hadn’t wounded her as she’d known before. “Sylva.” Her name came from his deepest heart, once their lips unsealed.

Flirting at Romance Writers Behaving Badly


Lovely cool-dry-air evening, my Summer-rolling Kittens... thank the ever-loving heavens the temps on the tame prairie did not reach the forecasted high heat... o-meow-my, you should see the beautiful heavy blossoms adorning one moi’s bushes... one close to the doggie area... yep, the fertilizing is all too good.
~~~
There was a strangely colored moon a couple of days ago. First Luna Belle was a delectable shade of pale lemon... later, in the dark before dawn, the moon was this intense shade of orange... not like a Halloween harvest moon... but blood-orange red... the Kougaress is forced to wonder what is in the atmosphere.
~~~
Oh dreamy-eyed Felines, this Big Cat was rescued in her early morning dream by Armondo, Adrian Paul’s twin brother, or so he tells me. The coloring of this particular dream was vivid as if it took place during a Latin dance festival. It used to be that moi rescued others in her dreams. Of late, occasionally, she is rescued. Very much needed, too. In this dream Armondo encouraged this Big Cat girl to become beautiful again and be with him, to join with him in life... unfortunately not in a rolling-around passionate way... although, that seemed to be something that would happen in the future. So too bad moi woke up before this grand impassioned scene took place.
~~~
Yes!!! The Kougar is blogging Friday, the 25th, at ROMANCE WRITERS BEHAVING BADLY... and! It’s Flirty Friday... so drop on by for a newly penned flirtatious scene... you know that wow-sexy guitarist who has women hanging off him, or women who want to hang off him... what if he flirted with you?

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 543 ~

Sylva didn’t resist the intense urge that suddenly overcame her. She threw herself at Zeke seeking him, wanting his protectiveness and his caring. His arms wrapped around her as she clung to his hard frame. “I just need to feel close,” she murmured. God, she hoped he didn’t crush her emotionally as had happened so often with other men. God, she hoped. For an instant it felt as if her heart suspended its beat. “Sylva, darlin’ mine.” He crooned her name as he hugged her more intimately. Rocking her in his arms, he tenderly brushed her temple with his lips.

Zeke felt his woman’s need for him. Even with their dire circumstance pounding at him, even with his savage need to protect his Sylva by catching the bad guys, Zeke knew they both needed to keep their hearts warm for each other, as his mother phrased it. His little bride remained a stranger in a strange land to her. She had no one, but him. She’d been through a whole passel worth of trouble, already. He wasn’t surprised when he felt her tears leaking from her eyes. He kissed away the ones he could capture with his mouth. “Oh, Zeke.”

BIG CAT BEWARE AND TAKE CARE ~

Truly, some people have gone to the insane side. When did it become acceptable for Americans to wear identifying arm bands? That’s what is happening in Indiana where the tornadoes hit. A fellow who survived called in on Coast to Coast am, and said they [the media and police] were lying about the looting going on, that there was none, and that an out-of-area SWAT commander had arrived and taken over their area with his team. People are being forced to register at a government building just to go about their usual business. This is exactly what Hitler did to the Germans. And this is truly the insane part, the unbelievable part, folks are making up excuses for this, as if it’s okay to treat other Americans this way. All this Big Cat can say is, gee wally willickers, have fun in that there concentration FEMA camp. Yep, the authorities are just there to protect you.

Mr. Older Tree in the Summertime


Pic from ~ hermann-uwe.de ~

Oh, Kittens... another storm rolled through on the tame prairie... not too bad and mostly just a nice rain... but yowls, it meant the Kougar had to computer-disconnect and she was merrily working on her edits for Branded. Yep, still making good progress... *knock on wood” again.

Moi did get a nice nap and when she awoke, the sunset shimmered both with blazing colors and luminous pastel washes of color... quite the splendid panorama. Recently, the Kougaress has noticed how handsome the older tree outside her favorite window is this summer... when she first moved here, Mr. Older Tree looked okay, but a bit scraggly. Now, over several years, he’s grown much taller, spread his limbs and now he’s a handsome ole devil. The birds and squirrels love him. And so does moi.

Sylva peered at her way-too-handsome husband. “The Matrix,” he murmured, obviously deep in thought. “Darlin’, are you talkin’ about human bodies being used for energy and the folks are kept in a dreaming state?” Sylva stroked her Zeke’s arm just to feel him and to know his strength. “It sounds like the same or a similar plot. But, the point is, they believe the programmed dreams they’re having as if it’s actually reality.” Her cowboy gave a nod. “Mind control can be done in many ways. There are any number of techniques and technologies.” Sylva felt her shoulders sag. “MK-ULTRA...”

Zeke started violently inside, but did his best not to let it show. No use frightening his beloved Sylva. Immediately, her gaze questioned him, though. “Don’t tell me there’s a, or was an MK-ULTRA here?” Zeke nodded in answer, and wondered how to explain what had occurred in their history. He paused a short moment. “There was a nefarious mind control program that was shut down about thirty years ago.” Heaving in a large breath, he continued, “The odd-duck thang was that some of those psycho-sidewinders claimed they’d traveled through time, and ended up here rather than on their Earth.”

However, the Kougaress will offer no illustration, thereof, for the sake of not enough time, and because it’s just too damn graphic and nasty. Skizoid, or schizoid, it’s been awhile since moi has heard that word, very popular in her teenage years.

Sylva decided she might as well purge herself of what else she’d come to understand. “Circus Circus,” she began, “or theater of the mind for the masses, that’s been used for decades now. I didn’t realize how much who I am had been suppressed... my real abilities as a human being.” Zeke cocked his head, his gaze puzzled. “Theater of the mind, darlin’? Do you mean media shows being used as a wide-scale distraction?” Sylva felt a few tears slip from the corner of her eyes. “That’s part of it. Actually, it’s the entire culture, at least, what I’ve known...”

Zeke felt it dawn within his own mind as his Sylva paused. Their world hadn’t been immune to that kind of soul-killing propaganda, either, even if hadn’t destroyed their freedom. Was it a matter of luck? The turn of the right card that meant winning the pot. “Culture?” he asked, wanting to know more. Her eyes were fathomless pools, almost as if she belonged to another realm. “The overall way our culture has been manipulated... well, it keeps most of us from looking behind the curtain.” She paused again, then softly asked, is there a movie here called, The Matrix?”

BIG CAT CLAWS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ~

Gee, surprise, surprise... one more ‘execution’ of a man who tried to make a difference for us all by inventing alternative energy. Wanna bet that this just a so-called accident?


~ vcstar.com/news/2010/jun/18/authorities-identify-man-killed-in-simi-valley ~

A day after a massive explosion at a Simi Valley alternative energy company killed a 28-year-old employee, a clearer picture of what transpired was beginning to emerge.

Authorities on Friday said Simi Valley resident Tyson Larson was killed at his family business, Realm Industries, when a pressurized container used to heat water exploded accidentally during an apparent attempt to make alternative fuel.

An investigation into the blast by the California Occupational Health and Safety Administration was in its early stages and many details remained about the incident, the second explosion at the business in 18 months.

Meanwhile, public documents revealed that a man who applied with Larson to patent a method for generating energy from water was recently indicted for allegedly bilking investors out of $6 million using ploys involving a similar alternative energy process.

The blast that killed Larson was reported about 1:15 p.m. Thursday at Realm Industries, 480 E. Easy St. A loud boom from the explosion was heard blocks away, damaging the building, causing much of the roof to collapse and blowing out doors.

Freaky Deaky Creepy Sleazy Days


Evening meows, my purty strutting Pussycats... this 70's term, Freaky Deaky, smacked the Kougaress’s mind out of the blue because, dang it, everything feels so damn crazy these days... although, Freaky Deaky, the song and the term, is actually about getting your sexual freak on... no, moi was not thinking about that, even if she is an erotic romance author... though, that might be an interesting trail to investigate.. It’s just that everything *feels* so freaky, and not in a good way... but in an insane frightening way... and Deaky... well, there are so many wimpy dicks in supposed leadership positions during these times, it feels overwhelming and ominous... it feels Deaky, somehow.

Words, terms, always have a positive use side and a negative use side. Often this ebbs and flows with the times. An obvious example is the ‘F’ word. Originally, it wasn’t in use as a curse word, or a dirty word. Somehow, it morphed to become what it is now... and, yes, it’s still morphing... with far less impact than it previously enjoyed.

Yep, in so many ways, these are the Freaky Deaky Creepy Sleazy Days... especially on the world stage.
~~~

Okay, this Big Cat girl loves her ice cream and regularly purchases the Breyer brand in hopes there won’t be too many harmful nasty chemicals in it, as advertised. Besides, it’s the only actual brand she’s found that tastes decent, anymore... oh, purrs and please! for an organic dairy with organic ice cream... but now moi is digressing from her hit-between-the-eyes story... yowsers! BIG BROTHER advertising has definitely found her. This last trek into town, moi made a rare trip to Wal-Mart in search of box fans... well, Breyers ice cream was a good price and the Kougaress purchased a goodly amount... so, just now, she was checking out the weather for her area at Yahoo news... and THERE IT WAS! At the top! An ad for Breyer’s Ice Cream from Wal-Mart... no, NEVER has this Big Cat witnessed a web advertisement for ice cream, let alone the Breyer’s brand. Nor, has she seen Wal-Mart that often... coincidence... yeah, big fat meowing right. Claws and jaws ready for attack!!! That’s what THEY do with your purchasing info...

In her far, far away dreams, moving to Iceland sounds like an excellent idea to this Big Cat, even though she’s not a cold-weather loving feline. However, with global warming supposedly right around the corner, well, Iceland could become temp-wonderful. Yeah, there are volcanoes erupting. Yeah, the IMF bankster mafia is looking for ways to bust Iceland’s kneecaps... but, Iceland has bravely declared themselves a free internet zone and a free press zone... no more corporate-owned and influenced media... no more bowing to the pressures of the BIG BOYS and GIRLS... just freedom and a love for freedom. Sounds like heaven to this Big Cat girl, right now.

Lazy creature that I am, my writing tends to be sporadic. I used to stick notes in my journal saying why I hadn’t written anything that day.

ALSO!

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #94

The following week will be one of chaos and craziness, for the most part, on the world stage. It will appear as if sinister jesters have taken over. Nothing spoken, nothing claimed will make any real sense. The blue sky will be called green. And the green grass will be called any other color but green. Just shake your head and walk away... that could be your best option.
Another wild twist in the economic picture will occur. To outward appearances it will make no sense. However, it make look inviting to some as an opportunity. In reality it is a sinkhole waiting to swallow up more of the still-working economy.

On a personal level, this week is a good time to take stock of your life. What direction do you want to take your efforts, your talents, your career? This is a key question at this time. For, there is an opening door, a current vibration, which will allow you to see, and be aware of the opportunities that will best serve you. Follow your gut instinct and pay strict attention to your intuition. Forge ahead, for, you will not be disappointed.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 540 ~

Sylva continued, “When I left my body I saw Coon and Snake... and a large screen that seemed to be showing their dreams, or thoughts.” Her cowboy husband nodded contemplatively. “Yup. Their mind frequencies are translated into electro-magnetic signals. Looks like what they know is even more crucial... what is it, darlin’? What else happened?” Sylva swallowed. The Mother’s last words seemed to possess her. “Do not let BP win on the Earth I call, Freedom,” she whispered. Gazing directly at Zeke, she studied his expression. His eyes seemed to storm over with thought. “That’s what Mother Earth told me.”

Zeke felt as if he rang with the word’s his wife had said, the message from her Earth. “The Earth I call, Freedom,” he repeated. His Sylva sighed, a desperate sound and so hopeless, Zeke massaged her dainty shoulders. “Freedom seems to be losing the battle on my Earth,” she murmured. “Maybe, it’s just takin’ folks longer to know the value of their freedom. Maybe, what’s goin’ on will be like a catalyst, and wake them up to what their losin’.” Her gaze clung to his. Her sadness had claimed the depths of her beautiful eyes. “Maybe. I hope so.”
