Red Neon Horizon...

Such a beautiful big kitty...

Sunday into Monday meows, my lickety-split, time-for-the-holidays Kittens... cold temps have invaded the tame prairie... the browns and pales shades of tan have taken over, but the panoramic scene is no less beautiful, no less impressive.

After the sun has set, the red neon horizon beneath the black-purple cloud bank remains for far longer than can be remembered.

Authoress news and mews ~

Very eery moments for the Kougar today. In her 2012 angelic fantasy, WHEN A GOOD ANGEL FALLS, the heroine, Sedona, is recalling a recent incident where a man was arrested for jaywalking and labeled a terrorist because he ‘allegedly’ impedes the progress of a Nazzerazi vehicle. Now, today, this afternoon, the Kougar heard an outline of the bill currently before the Senate that would allow American citizens to be exterminated at the will of Homeland Security [including by order of the prez], as people are now being murdered in Pakistan, if the person is deemed to be an enemy of the state, a terrorist. This is without any due process, as in a jury trial. Nothing. You might as well paint a bull’s eye on yourself. Anyway, the bill stated this would also include *jaywalking* as an offense that could get you marked for death as a terrorist. This Big Cat can tell you the shivers took over her insides, and they haven’t quit. Yep, Orwellville is here.

On the good news side, the Kougar is doing a bit more polishing/editing on SANTA BABY, SEVERAL STARS AWAY as she waits for her cover art. She is also looking at possibly penning a short New Year’s story to Indie pub... but that’s only an idea at this point. And time is really short. So...?

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

1:11 am... 2:12 am... 2:22 pm... 3:33 pm... 10:10 pm... 11:11 pm... shamestream media instead of mainstream media, yep...

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE! ALL POWER TO THE FREEDOM OCCUPATION!

~ Happy Last Days of November ~


And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

Lickety-split kisses from the Kougar...

Yikes, that is very eery! Let's hope that bill gets put down quickly!

Oooh, a short New Year's story would be fun! Good luck it you decide to give it a shot. :)

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, yeah, mentally I'm still reeling from the jaywalking connection.

A New Year's story... it's an idea. But it depends on so many factors falling into line... yowls!

We should publish our Flash Story at Passionate ink for a low price. It has over 51,000 views now. But whipping it into shape would definitely be time consuming.

Serena Shay said...

Hmmm, I like that idea! But, I'm thinking, we'd need to beef it up and add to it if we want to charge a price for it.

Did you save a copy of our posts?

Perhaps this is an idea we could tackle after the new year? :)

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, I think I've got all our posts saved. I know I have the whole flash of Sylva and Zeke. That would be time consuming to go through their story.

And, yeah, the story we wrote together does need beefing up and polishing.

If I only did Sylva and Zeke, I would just go with .99, since it was originally a free read. Even though, it's over a 100,000 words.

Then, if we did the other character's stories, that could be separate, or not. But, a low price would be good since it was originally a free read.

Personally, from what I've seen the whole free read thing as pubbed on Amazon, Smashwords, etc. can be a double-edged sword. If you have a series, it can help. If not, a lot of readers just download freebies and don't necessarily read them.

Plus, at this point, I'm in no mood to put in all that work and get nothing out of it. Just me. We both already pen enough free flashes, imo.

Plus, there's the cover art, and that ain't cheap.

Serena Shay said...

Very true about free reads being a double edged sword!

You have a good idea though about separating the free read down. If you pull Zeke and Sylva out and do a beef and polish or just a polish as you see fit, you could shoot for V-day. :) It would be a great fit!

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, that's a thought. Dang, I wish I had that out-of-time closet just to get everything done.

Serena Shay said...

You and me both! And I'm thinking we should leave a little shot of kick in the pants in there as well! LOL ;)

Savanna Kougar said...

If we're talking pants... heck, I need an out of time lover. ~lol~
