Excitement abounds... going Indie for Christmas...

Dylan, my hero, observing humans as a stone lion...

Friday into Saturday purrs, my weekend-frolicking, purty Pussycats... good gosh, really, this Big Cat can’t believe it’s already December and the year, 2011, is coming to a close... no, she’s definitely not ready for 2012... not ready at all...

Mild and overcast on the tame prairie today... and the rain is supposed to be coming this way... a good, good thing if it arrives.

Excitement abounds... going Indie for Christmas...

Authoress news and mews ~

Excitement abounds for the Kougar. She’s getting ever closer to Indie publishing, SANTA BABY, SEVERAL STARS AWAY. More tingly excitement.. the cover art by Amanda Kelsey is looking Christmasy fabulous. And, yes, this Big Cat’s claws are definitely crossed the formatting will work... at least, be passable.


Rayne Deehere's Game
by Serena Shay

Rayne limped through the woods, dragging the hefty twelve-gauge behind her as she looked for her stupid, stupid brothers. John, Mule and Rudy had left early that morning with a promise on their lips— they would head directly into town, look for any available jobs, and then come straight home.

That had been twenty-six, freaking, hours ago. A full day, plus a few, and they only lived a few miles outside of Talbot’s Peak.


Okay, thanks to Carly Carson from the Indie authors loop, the Kougar found out that Amazon now has a way for authors to have their “Personal Amazon URL”. If you have an author page through Author Central.

Sign into Author Central, click on Profile, then look for the *Author Page URL* notice. It’s pretty simple to do, and if nothing else you’ve protected your author name. Just make certain to use the URL you want, since it’s permanent.

Here’s this Big Cat’s ~ ~

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

2:12 am... 8:44 pm... yep, less than a month away, the year, 2012...


Strong winds down trees and power lines in West AP - 1 hr 53 mins ago

Some of the worst winds in years blasted through California overnight, sweeping through canyons, gusting up to 97 mph (156 kph), and toppling trees and trucks while knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of people.

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

~ Have a happy and magickal holiday season ~


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

Weekend-frolicking kisses from the Kougar...

Oooh, thanks for the info on the Amazon URL...I just set mine up. :)

Good luck with the formatting!!

Serena, yeah, you're welcome.

My head is doing a steady spin right now from all the formatting. There needs to be some simple process for 'dummies'.

Serena Shay said...

Formatting for dummies...I would be surprised if there wasn't one at your local library. Seems like they have a dummie book for everything these days! :D

I dunno about Indie publishing since it's fast-changing. There are ebooks. I have the KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid one, and she's pretty good. But still, the contortions you have to go through and it's for Word, which I don't have. Don't want, but may be forced to buy.

I downloaded the smashwords guide... but lordy what a minefield for us dummies. And they only want you to use a .doc version, and don't recommend WordPerfect. Although, there's a gal who also uses WP, and gets in their premium catalogue.

And now I downloaded Calibre which you can use to create .prc and other ebook formats, but I don't have a clue how to use it!!!
