Breaking My Silence...

Oh yes, for tonight's wickedly naughty costume party the Kougaress is slipping on this black and sheer brevity... it is the season of the witch and she will be performing magick without a hitch.

Witching hour purrs, my super-sexy midnight Pussycats... another radically busy day for this Big Cat... omy, more lovely, but dry Autumn weather on the tame prairie today... in early afternoon a tiny flotilla of clouds moved slowly across the autumn-blue sky while the sun blazed so white-intense there was no glimpsing it.

Authoress news and mews ~

Breaking My Silence...

Yep, Kittens, the ebook world was recently rocked. Thanks to erotic romance author, Serena Shay, for letting the Kougar know about this all-important blog ~ ~

Regarding the Kougar’s own TANGERINE CARNAL DREAMS... PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS EBOOK. In due time it will be republished. Thank you!

Working... working... working on RED LIONESS TAMED... yeah-yowls, everything is more complex than this Big Cat author thought it could be around Indie publishing.


Who is the Nude Blonde?
by Solara

Cason backed away from the nude female as she stirred. His ears still ached from the high-pitched song he kept hearing and feeling as though he should know the words to running through his subconscious thoughts. And yet, part of him wanted to reach down and help her to her feet. Why did he feel so protective of her? He’d never seen her before. He couldn’t remember meeting her. Frack, he couldn’t even put more than two names together out of the group of shifters and humans surrounding them. How had his early morning beach walk become so complicated?



How the Mayans Escaped
Friday, October 14, 2011

There are Mayan secrets that have not yet been revealed, and one of these may have been an escape route from a volcano in El Salvador. On an August evening 1,400 years ago the Loma Caldera volcano erupted a short distance away from the village of Ceren there. Archeologists have discovered an ancient road, built by the Mayans, which must have been the village's escape route. These sacbe, or "white ways," are raised roads paved with volcanic ash. They were built to connect temples and plazas within ceremonial centers or cities, although some of these structures no longer exist.

Ceren was an ancient community of about 200 people that was buried under 17 feet of volcanic ash. It disappeared for 1,400 years, but the ash not only destroyed it, it also preserved it as a kind of time capsule. Even the plants growing there at the time of the eruption have been preserved. The road seems to be leading from the outskirts of town to the main temple, where at the time of the eruption, the villagers had been preparing a ritual of some sort. In an emergency, people would have used this road to escape the city.

They left in such a rush that they left behind their belongings and even half-eaten food. In, Jennifer Welsh quotes researcher Peyson Sheets as saying, "We know there was a celebration going on when the eruption hit. And we've found no evidence of anyone going back to their houses, gathering up valuables, and fleeing, because all the household doors were tied shut. We think people may have left the plaza and run south, possibly on the sacbe, because the danger was to the north."

Sheets thinks they are likely to eventually find bodies along the road of those who succumbed to the ash and smoke from the volcano. Since no bodies have been found at the site yet, most of the city probably had time to flee, even if they didn't survive. Welsh quotes him as saying, "How far they might have gotten, I don't know. It would have been a footrace. I think it is very likely we will find bodies as we follow the sacbe southward in future excavations."

Super-sexy midnight kisses from the Kougar...

It's so sad authors are being forced to ask readers not to buy their books!

So sorry this is happening to you, Savanna, and the other authors at Aspen...I hope everyone can get their rights back, asap...

Savanna Kougar said...

Yeah, it's a big sad mess. And, I'm not nearly as affected as some authors. But, really, given contracts have already been breached simply because royalty statements haven't been provided and royalties haven't been paid, that means an automatic return of rights. I think authors should go with that, and republish as quickly as possible. The problem would be convincing vendors like Amazon in a rapid manner to accept the republished books.
