Summer-muggy howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Yes, it turned hot and humid on my tame prairie. So far, summer has been mostly mild, and extra rainy-stormy. I couldn't even get my indoor plants out safely given the ongoing strength of the storms. 'Cause I just don't have extra energy to bring them in all the time. 

Anyway, to my delight, I polished Chapter Three of TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION. *Knock on wood* I will be able to continue at this speed. 

Here's a snippet. If you wish to read the first three chapters, they are on my Subscribe Star page at:  ~https://subscribestar.adult/savanna-kougar-otherworld-romance-author~ The fee is $1.00 a month.

Chapter Three: Trouble On Treasure Moon 

At a familiar tone my gaze snaps to a lower monitor. "There it is, Taegar. Proof. A fortune in numonic-particle glass awaits." 

"I see."  He fine-tunes the monitor display enhancing the mineral composition of Treasure Moon. 

"You can't hide from me, my pretty sparklies. Not beneath those layers of common rock." 

"I will determine the ideal spot to mine, sir." 

"Most excellent. The faster we...wait!" I scowl. My gut tightens. "What is that ghost anomaly?" 

~~~~~~ 

Also, Delilah Devlin is once again putting an anthology together. I am in a quandary as to whether I should attempt to submit another story, given the two I did submit were not accepted. Well, we'll see...??? 

Regardless, here's the info: 

FIRST RESPONSE:  A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY
Editor: Delilah Devlin
Deadline: November 15, 2019

FIRST RESPONSE is open to all authors.

Editor/Author Delilah Devlin is looking for stories for a romantic erotica anthology tentatively entitled FIRST RESPONSE:  A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY.

Why write a short story for this collection? Well, it’s certainly not about making a lot of money, so why do it at all? I’ve said this before, but here are my thoughts…

Writing a short story for a call for submissions is a chance to flex your writing muscle! It can be a chance to experiment with a genre you’ve never written. If you’ve never written a story in first person but don’t want to begin by writing an entire novel using it, start short! For myself, I’ve written stories in new genres or with fresh themes that ended up being so much fun to write they’ve spawned entire series.

You have a deadline! I don’t know about you, but I have trouble keeping my butt in the chair without one!

It’s a promotional opportunity! If selected, you’ll be joined by 12-15 other authors for the launch, sharing your audiences and, hopefully, picking up new readers along the way. Having your story in the collection is another chance to be “seen.”

And remember, you retain the rights to your story, so you can republish it for individual sale or give it away to attract subscribers to your newsletter. You might even decide there’s more story to tell and expand it into a novel!

Here’s what I’m looking for…

FIRST RESPONSE: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY will include stories that satisfy the reader who craves stories about those brave people who sweep into therescue, regardless of the dangers. Here are a few ideas…

When an alarm goes off in a high-rise apartment building, our heroine is trapped in an elevator while fire spreads in the floors above her. Who will provide her comfort until she can be rescued? An ex who’s a fireman with local FD? Perhaps the heroine is the pilot of a spaceship on the edge of the galaxy when her ship is attacked, and she’s forced to land on uninhabited planet. Who will come to her rescue? Will he be human? The vessel of a woman attempting a solo voyage around the world is sinking in the middle of the ocean. Will a pirate be her only hope?

Don’t limit your imagination to these ideas! Just remember, our “boys” have to behave badly—to give the rescuee just what they always secretly craved… Have fun with the concept.

I’m open to any subgenre of erotic romance you want to write. I’ll accept contemporary, historical, science fiction, or paranormal stories, and I won’t be picky about whether the stories are hetero, LGBT, ménage… Basically, you, the author, can go anywhere your imagination takes you so long as 1) a character is in jeopardy, and 2) the story is a romance, and 3) you have a bad boy somewhere in the pages!

The anthology will be sold at a low price—my intent is exposure for you and your writing. The more readers reached, the better! You will retain the rights to your story so that, at a later date, you can republish your stories individually.

I’m seeking hot and inventive stories from authors with unique voices, and above all, I’m looking to be seduced by tales filled with vivid imagery and passion.

Published authors with an established world may use that setting for their original short story.

This is erotic romance, so don’t hold back on the heat. Stories can be vanilla or filled with kink, but don’t miss describing the romantic connection between strong-willed individuals learning to trust and love one another. A deep sensuality should linger in every word. Keep in mind there must be a romantic element with a happy-for-now or happy-ever-after ending. Strong plots, engaging characters, and unique twists are the ultimate goal. Please no reprints. I want original stories.

How to submit: Prepare your 2,500 to 5,500 words story in a double-spaced, Arial, 12 point, black font, Word document (.doc or .docx) OR rich text format (.rtf), with pages numbered. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch, and double space (regular double spacing; do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). U.S. grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) is required.

In your document at the top left of the first page, include your legal name (and pseudonym, if applicable), mailing address, email address, and a 50-words or less bio, written in the third person, and send to boysbehavingbadlyfirstresponse@gmail.com. If you are using a pseudonym, please provide your real name and pseudonym and make it clear which one you’d like to be credited as. Authors may submit up to 2 stories. I will respond no later than January 30, 2020 with decisions.

Payment will be $25.00 USD, ninety days after publication at the end of that month.

Chapter Two of Treasure Moon Seduction At Subscribe Star


Dzonn, the Dark Rogue 
Hero In TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION   
This Is the Best Representation of My Swashbuckling Space Hero That I Could Find 

Originally posted at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTION

AND... 



THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE CELEBRATION IN WOLF PEAK TERRITORY 

"WE hold these truths to be self-evident, that all shapeshifters and supernatural beings, are created equal, they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness..." 

Yes, everyone who lives and loves in the Peak cherishes 1776 style FREEDOM, even though Dante is the alpha wolf leader. Yeah, it works. 


SciFi howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Despite the alarming number of hurdles I've faced, including how to innovatively stop a roof leak ... yeah, a darn huge challenge ... but yes, Chapter Two has now been posted on my Subscribe Star page ~https://subscribestar.adult/savanna-kougar-otherworld-romance-author~

As you can tell, the hero in TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION is the bold swashbuckling type. He captains his own spectacularly tek-outfitted speed cruiser, and has been a notoriously successful galactic treasure hunter for a very long while. His assistant-companion is an android named Taigar. 

So, wanna read Dzonn's erotic love story in serialized form, or one chapter at a time as I polish them ... well, the fee is $1.00 a month. 

Here's the first few lines of Chapter Two: Unsurpassed Wealth Awaits ~~~ 

"Treasure Moon, I'm about to land both feet on your bosom." I tell the silvery spot on the main screen of my space cruiser. The excitement of the hunt rules me. I shout, "Prepare to give up your bounty, old gal." 

Swoeg, I might as well toss back tankards of adrenalin. Unsurpassed wealth awaits...if... 

~~~ 

Tagline:  

Ksilya is stranded on Treasure Moon. Attacked by tentacle mercenaries, she fights to escape. Until... 

Dzonn, the Dark Rogue, plans on making a fortune from Treasure Moon. Instead his beautiful rival has beat him. Once again.

~~~ 

Okay, hopefully, I will be able to speed up rewriting/polishing TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION. 

Also *knock on wood* I hope to continue penning my Wolf Peak Valentine's Day story tentatively titled:  Beauty and the Biker Boar Beast.

I Did It! My First Post on Subscribe Star... and Beginning Chapter Twenty

The Mythical Ones, the Mythical Creatures Are Real and Living In Wolf Peak Territory 

Hot Summer howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers.

Looks like the storm rains have given up for a time on my tame prairie. But it's a jungle out there 'cause it was too rainy to do much mowing. 

Anyway, finally I've gotten Chapter One of TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION rewritten—expanded and improved. I just posted it as my first subscriber offering at ~https://subscribestar.adult/savanna-kougar-otherworld-romance-author

So, if you would like to read a scifi erotic romance short story in serialized form, the fee is $1.00 a month. 

Here's the first few lines:

Chapter One: When Tentacles Attack 

Giant ugly tentacles to the right of me. Slimy brown tentacles to the left. 

Closer and closer, they slither threatening me like poisonous serpents. Hell-suns, why didn't my ship's instruments activate, warn me? 

~~~ 

Tagline:  

Ksilya is stranded on Treasure Moon. Attacked by tentacle mercenaries, she fights to escape. Until... 

Dzonn, the Dark Rogue, plans on making a fortune from Treasure Moon. Instead his beautiful rival has beat him. Once again.

~~~ 

Okay then, at this point in time, I would like to get TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION rewritten fast as possible *knock on wood*. Once it's finished, I want to indie-publish on Smashwords. And, I might look at D2D for other author services. Most likely though, I'll ignore Amazon Kindle simply because I don't appreciate their big-publisher abuse of authors or their ongoing strategy to corner the publishing market. 

As well, I hope [knock on wood] to continue writing on my Wolf Peak Valentine's Day story. I haven't decided on the title yet. However, one possibility is: Beauty and the Biker Boar Beast. 
Currently, I'm beginning Chapter Twenty. Here's an *unexciting unedited* snippet from the end of Chapter Nineteen. Yet, the luncheon conversation between Khryssa, the heroine, and Razor, the hero ... well, this explains a whole lot about the growing Peak community. Why it is thriving... 

Khryssa nodded absently. "You know the problem with dating, with courtship. Expectations." She gazed at him directly. "If...if...if you do end up together, then how do you keep this level of..." 

"Like Dante and Kitty do." Razor studied her expression, what her eyes told him. "How about your parents, Khryssa? Hasn't their relationship been good overall, and grown in love and affection?" 

"Well, true. But if you look at relationships out in the world, they're so incredibly messed up. And sad. Usually, that is. Although, not here in Wolf Peak ...your parents still love each other, right?" 

"To the moon and back. Beyond the Odin connection, they joked about when pigs fly...only when pigs fly to the moon because they love each other so much." 

"We are lucky, aren't we? Most don't have that example, a loving family environment. Not in these times." 

"That's one reason I and everyone here will defend Wolf Peak. It's a sanctuary for love, for families." 

Khryssa nodded. "Absolutely. Speaking of...I need to get to the Witch's Circle meeting." 

"We're on our way, babe." Razor stood, offering his hand. 

~~~ 

In case I don't post before July Fourth, have the best one ever, shapeshifter lovers. But I do hope post before then.

Savanna Kougar at Subscribe Star ~ Treasure Moon Seduction


Originally posted at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTION

Summer howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Yes, I am now live on ~subscribestar.com~ at: https://subscribestar.adult/savanna-kougar-otherworld-romance-author

If you would like to read a scifi erotic romance short story in serialized form... well, this is my public post at Subscribe Star. The fee is $1.00 a month. 

Greetings, otherworld romance lovers, 

Okay then, here's a tagline and the title of the first chapter-by-chapter erotic romance, I will be offering for subscribers. 

Treasure Moon Seduction 
by 
Savanna Kougar 

Starring

Ksilya of the Windgate 
&
Dzonn of the Vericruis 

Ksilya is stranded on Treasure Moon. Attacked by tentacle mercenaries, she fights to escape. Until... 

Dzonn, the Dark Rogue, plans on making a fortune from Treasure Moon. Instead his beautiful rival has beat him. Once again. 


This is a scifi short story originally written for submission to an anthology. The theme was BAD BOYS, and being stranded. 

Since my entry was not selected, I planned to Indie publish at Smashwords. However, time, circumstance, and other such no-fun barriers quashed that from happening in any timely manner. 

Also, I began writing a ShapeShifter Seduction Valentine's Day romance set in my fictional world of Wolf Peak Territory. This took what little time and energy I had. Currently, Razor and Khryssa's erotic love story continues to be written. 

Meanwhile, given I still want to Indie publish "Treasure Moon Seduction", my idea is to polish and expand the story. As I do this, I will be offering the chapters 'one' at a time to you – yes, like an unfolding serial story. 

Note: I will be doing my best to accomplish this as fast as possible, but a warning. Time and energy are still a big bugaboo. All positive thoughts and prayers appreciated!

Wolf Dads ... Also, a New Possible Project



Originally posted at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTION

June Howls and Yowls, Shapeshifter Lovers, 

Yes, I missed FATHER'S DAY in Wolf Peak Territory. The ole bugaboo of not enough time and energy got me. However, there's a very interesting dad-happening in the Peak these days. 

So, a surprise to me, as I was writing on my latest WIP, set in the Peak, and starring Khryssa [half elfin-half human woman] and Razor [a biker boar shifter]......well, it turns out Dante, the alpha wolf leader, his devoted mate, Kitty, is with child. The Wolf Peak community is abuzz bigtime. 

It's been about eight years since Dante and Kitty were reunited. As teenagers, they were deeply in love. Given Dante's not-so-good sire despised any and all feline shifters, and snarling-threatened to harm Kitty if Dante continued to date her... Okay, to save his beloved Kitty from a terrible death -- his sire's mafia pack was all powerful at the time ... yes, Dante bit the bullet, and took off on his Harley -- leaving Kitty with only heartbreak. 

Before finally returning several years later, Dante traveled the world, having many a wild adventure. He met other supernatural beings, and of course shifters of all types and stripes. Often, he made lifelong friends with them. Yes, this includes humans. 


WOLF DADS IN THE PEAK COMMUNITY. 
THE BABIES, AND THE CHILDREN, ARE ALWAYS CHERISHED AND PROTECTED IN WOLF PEAK TERRITORY. 

BECAUSE FAMILY IS ALL IMPORTANT, NO MATTER THE SPECIES. 








***A New Possible Project*** 
Yesterday, I set up an account with Subscribe Star ~https://www.subscribestar.com~  which might not be approved, and is not active yet. However, the idea is that I plan to offer chapter-by-chapter, or an ongoing story for anyone interested in reading it--hopefully almost daily, if I can manage it. Also, I plan to include flash scenes. And, of course, author info. 

If approved, the subscription fee will be $1.00 a month.

Writing that politically correct Erotic Romance Novel?


Originally posted at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTION

Hey, Microsoft can help YOU with their latest AI tool. 

SNARK! SEND IN THE ATTACK WEREWOLVES! 

Hey, ShapeShifter Lovers, I finally have some time to post. Lucky for you, huh? Okay, that's a big ole tongue in cheek. 

So, let me tell you I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO GLAD I never used Word to pen anything at all.  Nothing! None of my romance novels. 

Yes, this ole fuddy-duddy author still uses Wordperfect 12 [and I bought my own CD]. Why? It's easy. It's logical. And, Wordperfect 12 program makes sense to me. 

From the beginning I never liked Microsoft Word. Why use a program you don't like, given, when needed, I can simply copy my manuscript to Word '97, or any other Word program? 

And now, to deal with the endless frustration of a writing program telling me what to write, interrupting me -- yep, this will happen eventually, even if they tell you now it's ONLY a tool choice. 

Well... no thank you. That's a BIG NO THANK YOU. I don't want that program tool. Especially since you will be monitored in live time ... you know, like they currently do in China. 

Anything and everything a person does using their cyber devices in China is known in live time -- and that person can be, and often is, immediately punished for having a low social credit score. NO BANKING FOR YOU... NO TRAIN TICKET ... NO AIRPLANE TICKET ... KICKED OUT OF YOUR APARTMENT EVEN IF YOU'RE PAYING FAITHFULLY... 

But hey, even if you can override Microsoft's suggested changes for your novel ... what happens somewhere down the BIG BROTHER 1984 timeline ... if your manuscript is deemed NOT politically correct, then you get no publisher ... you don't get to publish anywhere, in fact -- not even on a website you supposedly own, and pay for. 

Know this, it will not matter how successful you are -- how successful your novel is/could be -- or how good you are at raking in the cashola as an author. The PC culture demands complete obedience to their will -- you now, shades of the old Soviet Union.  

Besides, these days, any content can be scrubbed from the Internet of Things -- cyber book-burning happens everyday now. Websites, blogs, social media accounts are falling like dominoes. 

So maybe, your precious novel would be on the dark web. But who wants to deal with the dark web? I don't. I'm not cyber-savvy enough. 

The truth for me is, I want Microsoft and the other giant tech companies broken up, their tyrannical cartels ended. Heck, by now, these global-corporate monsters WHO WANT TO DICTATE what kind of fictional stories you can and cannot write, what type of romance you can and cannot write .. hell, they must have broken every antitrust law. At least, according to many law experts. 

And no, the Silicon Valley tech giants are NOT private companies. All of these companies were started by DARPA-INTEL AGENCIES, with their black monies, essentially with your taxpayer dollars. YES, MICROSOFT [a subsidiary of IBM, friend to the Nazi regime] ... YES, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, TWITTER... ARE OWNED BY *WE THE PEOPLE*. 

If you look at it this way, you as a romance writer are paying for someone else, a big-brother type, to tell YOU how and what you are allowed to write. In the near future. 

How is this allowed in America? 


Microsoft launches new 'inclusive' AI tool that will recommend ways to make your writing more politically correct

  • 'Ideas in Word' uses machine learning to make suggestions in Word documents
  • The tool suggests when users could use more inclusive language in their writing
  • Also offers suggestions on conciseness and punctuation, among other things

Yes, Mothers Are Beloved In Wolf Peak Territory... 



Yes, ShapeShifter Lovers, Mother's Day Has Come and Gone For 2019... however, it's always GOOD to celebrate mothers ... here are some pics from Wolf Peak Territory. 

Okay, Wolves First... 



Mom's always need a good snooze... 



Nothing more beautiful than a mare and her foal ... 



Baby Horse Love... 



Unicorn moms and their springtime babies abound in the Peak.... 



Who can resist this pair of lovelies...

Proud Mama Cougar ... how huggable are these little cuties? 



Cheetah Adorables ... Mama Cheetah loves living in the Peak. 



Wouldn't you like to tumble and play with this little bear guy ... careful! Only if Mom approves. 



Happy Mother's Day to the Bear Shifter Moms ... yep, the epitome of tough and tender... 



Buffalo shapeshifter moms are the best... 



Doe and her fawn, shifters, of course ... Mom and Dawn own a survival shop in Moonrise Lake, the small town in Wolf Peak Territory... 




Another herd of donkey shapeshifters has moved to the Peak... 



Did you know Pandas have a lot of canine genetics ...originally, they were gene-created as pets and protectors for a royal line of people who migrated to Earth very long ago. 



Yes, Zebra shapeshifters roam the prairies inside the Peak ... to hide them Peakites designed a breeding ranch for Zebras... 



Dolphin shifters love visiting Wolf Peak, especially all the shops inside the Interspecies Pleasure Club -- there is a waterway from the ocean through a series of caves... 



Yes, there's a Swan Lake in the Peak... 



There's a Hippo Lake, as well... what a big mouth cutie... 



Who wouldn't LOVE this small tank of a baby...? 



Vacationing in the Arctic, one of the Peak's Polar Bear moms, and first cub...  



The Tiger shifter twins adore Momma Tigress...
