A blue autumn sky with a flotilla of cotton-ball clouds...

Late night yowls, my feisty and fancy Autumn Felines... wowser, another crazy-doing-stuff day... about half an hour ago, the almost quarter moon shone in the eastern sky, a gorgeous and vibrant shade of orange... oh, lordy, the craziness in the world has gone crazy... crazy on crazy... so it feels!

Be careful, my darlings, it’s all coming apart at the seams.

A blue autumn sky with a flotilla of cotton-ball clouds, what unexpected grandeur today.

Authoress news and mews ~

Oh, Kittens, what a day! The Kougar had so many unexpected interruptions, she didn’t get to the important authorly stuff... yeeee-ows!


When Magick Rises Once Again
by Savanna Kougar

Hearing the crackle-rustle of autumn leaves, Zalasdair halted and watched the cottontail rabbit dash away from the intruding human. In this case, the intruding warlock.

The young buck rabbit ran as if a demon grabbed for his tail, and Zalasdair admired his speed. Likely he would survive despite the large population of wolven, big cat, and other predator shapeshifters.

Zalasdair used his force and that of the Mother Earth to gift the rabbit with greater speed and more endurance. Afterward, he closed his eyes and silently intoned his gratitude to Gaia for their deep connection, one that had lasted since the end of the Mage Age -- as Zalasdair thought of it, to his sardonic amusement.

“What prize-ass fools,” he darkly muttered. With a twirl and flick of his power staff, Zalasdair spoke the short incantation destroying the satellite tracking him. “Machines are never a match for magick.”

Mars and Jupiter Take You Soaring!

Sometimes, the stars align themselves so perfectly that everything naturally falls into place for you. And tomorrow, that's exactly what Mars and Jupiter plan to do!

On November 16, Mars (residing in Virgo) forms a genial alignment with Jupiter (currently in Taurus). Mars and Jupiter are a pair of fiery planets, and both promote action and progress. Jupiter is an idealist, bringer of good fortune and dedicated to helping you grow. Mars is determined, motivational and never backs down without a fight.

When these two planets get together, they offer you the courage and conviction to move forward with your greatest dreams. In fact, these planets normally tend to dream a little too big, which in turn can tempt you to bite off more than you can chew. But not on this day of perfect alignment! Virgo and Taurus, both earthy signs, will be there to ensure that Mars and Jupiter remain grounded enough to keep your own ambitions realistic.

The result is that you'll enjoy a day primed for idealism, action, enthusiasm and the potential to set your dreams into motion! Don't let a perfect day like this go to waste -- get out there and do something exciting!

November 16 is your chance to move forward with your life in a big way...

We're opening up the calendar for chat days. This is entirely a self-service chat from start to finish. I don't have the time to oversee a chat at all. I'll do my best to stop in and say hello, but it isn't guaranteed. Destiny B Chatting has over 300 members and we have a wonderful mix of readers, authors, publishers, publicists, and a few literary agents. Many of my readers have been with me since day one and they're loyal readers. If you hook them with your books, some of them may be with you for the duration, too.

We are open to promotions on Mondays and Thursdays. CHATS may be scheduled for any other day of the week as long as no one else has already reserved a chat date during the time you'd like to chat. For authors with new releases, if you're limited on time, you're welcome to choose a two-hour block but clearly state this in the additional notes so others may chat later or earlier in the day. If you'd like to book the entire day, you're welcome to do that as well. You may book up to two chats per month, if space is available.

*It's the author's responsibility to schedule, promote, and plan their own chats.*

If you'd like to schedule a chat, this will be a first-come, first-serve. Go to:~ groups.yahoo.com/group/destinyblaine_romance/cal ~ to schedule your event and follow the following instructions:

Are you planning to give away prizes, a free e-book, or a print book? Just give us a little overview. Additionally, I ask that event planners place their contact information in the additional notes section. Please include your email address.

Set Reminders?It's recommended that you set a couple of reminders because you want our readers to attend your event.

Remember, the more you promote ANY chat or blog tour, the better chat you'll have. It's up to you to promote your chat.

One final note, new authors are welcome and encouraged to chat. With the market flooded by new authors from all publishers as well as those self-publishing their own books, it's so important to put yourself in front of a buying audience. The readers frequenting this group enjoy chatting with new and seasoned authors. However, for the last several months, this group has been designated as straight promo. We have readers hungry for activity there. With so many eager readers, why not introduce yourself and your books to those who are anxious to meet you?

I welcome you to Destiny B Chatting. My Yahoo group is your Yahoo group. If you need a place to hang your hat, just run over there and start chatting. Once everyone realizes we're chatting again, the conversation and banter will keep you entertained while introducing new readers to your work.

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

12:12 am... 1:11 am... 2:12 am... 1:11 pm... 5:55 pm... 11:11 pm... truth, whether good-bad-ugly-beautiful, has never been more valuable...


Okay, my darlings, this is JUST gruesome! Pepsi uses fetuses for flavoring. It’s been out in the news for the last five months. Mygawd!!! Is this Big Cat glad she hasn’t had a Pepsi in probably twenty years. Nor has she used any of these products for the last several years. Have mercy!

Products and Companies that use Aborted Fetuses

If you use products created by Nestle, Kraft, Cadbury, Starbucks, PepsiCo, and until recently Campbells and Solae, you are using products created in part by aborted fetuses. That's right, aborted fetuses are used under the name of "artificial flavors" in these products.

Blue autumn sky kisses from the Kougar...

Oh gag...not that I doubt that could totally happen, but I pray the artificial flavors thing is just a really horrible urban myth! :(

Savanna Kougar said...

No, unfortunately, it's not an urban myth. It's been reported by reputable news agencies. And Pepsico shareholders are demanding the company quit adding that particular 'artificial flavoring'.
