Before You Can Say BOO

Shapeshifter lovers, greetings. Right now, my batteries are running low and I’m looking to spend what energy I have on the WIPs I’m writing and preparing for publication. Plus, with edits on my short story, THE TIGER’S MASQUERADE, arriving soon, I want to get as much penning done as possible.

One thing I’ve almost decided on ~ I’ll likely change the title of ~Kandy Apple for Halloween~ to ~Kandy Apple and Her Hellhounds~

Here’s the working blurb: What happens when two of Hades’ most mission-accomplished Hellhounds find just the right witch for Halloween?

This title change will take the story beyond being a Halloween-themed erotic romance. While the plot does revolve around the powerful energies of Samhain and the thinning of the veil, the story is not really just a spooky Halloween HEA tale. Not by a long shot. Or, not by a bewitched-twitch of my witch’s little nose – she’s a petite thing.

Here’s the last UNEDITED paragraphs of Chapter Twenty-Five ~

Diving outward, Zol flew soaring opposite Zin. Fast as wind-fanned flames, they curved their triad of power around the thirteen sorceresses. In the same instants, Kandace streaked upward arcing their combined force above the circle.

Believing victory was within their grasp, the sorceresses hissed with glee and rapid-fired their wands. Their strikes dissolved the purple smokescreen Kandace created as she whirled.

He and Zin absorbed the attack of dark-light pulses. Utilizing the energy as they did the combustible frequencies of Mother Earth, they moved into hyperspeed.

Yep, keep in step ~ Halloween is creeping up on us in that sneaky *crisper cooler Autumn way*. With the supersonic-jet speed of time these fleeting days, it will probably be here before you can say BOO!!!

The Kougar’s mews and news ~

Stacey Kennedy, paranormal romance author, will be our Guest Author this Thursday, the 9th, and will be giving us a preview of her upcoming release ~ AN EVERLASTING BITE. She’s a Canadian, so let’s give her a warm American welcome and hug.
I am also blogging today, over at THE PINK BLOG or the blog’s official name, LINDSAY’S ROMANTICS ~
The past week’s theme has been Library Days. If you want to learn more about the wonders of libraries, walk down memory lane, or learn about the future of libraries, these blogs are worth their weight in gold. Yesterday, Romance author, LK Hunsaker, shared her trip to the Dublin library where The Book of the Kells is housed. And, yes, there are pictures.
My post is an ‘ancient library’ scene I just wrote, starring Trail and Seneca, my hero and heroine in STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME.

You've got to let us know when you have a release date for Kandy and her hounds. It sounds like an interesting story!

Savanna Kougar said...

Hey, Rebecca, you betcha!

Serena Shay said...

Mmm...I like the new title! Zin and Zol are soooo hawt!! ;)

Yay, another guest blogger! Right on! ~I must be channeling the 70's again!~

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, I've got to get Zin and Zol they're HAPPY Hellhound ending.

I luv it! There's a lot of good things to channel from the 70s... as I look back at that time.

Savanna Kougar said...

HEY GANG! Check out Amanda's 'first' blog header idea and let me know what you think. I've posted it at our private Yahoo loop.

Pat C. said...

Love that pic! Is that a Hellhound? Demon wolf? He deserves a story of his own.

Zin and Zol sound like a fun pair. I don't suppose they have coyote blood?

Savanna Kougar said...

Hey Pat, the pic is a demon wolf... but somewhat close kin to hellhounds. Since Zin and Zol are exclusively designed by Hades, I'd have to ask the underground god himself. Of course, their blood is volcanic in nature.

Savanna Kougar said...

P.S. Pat, if you want Mr. Demon Wolf to have his own story, go for it.

Wouldn't that be a fun anthology, also... Demand of the Demon Wolf

Now, that is an antho that would definitely sell. Maybe even hit high on the bestseller list... at least, according to what readers are currently favoring.
