Thanksgiving Love From Wolf Peak Territory


Thanksgiving howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Yes, LOVE to everyone from everyone in Wolf Peak Territory. 

A most wonderful time of feasting, and a plethora of celebrations happened in the Peak. Given the various multi-cultures, and the many spiritual traditions, the festivities will continue throughout the Autumn days--absolutely enjoyed by All, of course. 


The dog shapeshifters of Wolf Peak gather together, and dress up to entertain the children. This is a real favorite every year. 



Being with loved ones...feasting, talking, hugging...that is most treasured by ALL in Wolf Peak Territory. 

Note: I had planned to finish a flash scene for Thanksgiving Day. As usual, I didn't get that accomplished. No time, and my energy ran out. ~sighs~ I am hoping I can finish it, anyway.

The Beast Horsemanship Games


The Beast Horsemanship Games Have Begun In Wolf Peak Territory. Only the best of the best compete. 

Autumn howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

I had planned to do a *Halloween Celebration In Wolf Peak Territory* post... however, the stars did not align for a whole variety of mundane and crazy reasons. Thus, that All Hallow's Eve opportunity escaped--gone with whipping ice crystal winds that attacked my tame prairie. That was wild. 
Yep, the cold Polar Arctic temps, and a mere 9 degrees just a few days ago. It was horrible. Fortunately, we had enough warmth, even though, I haven't finished winterizing yet. And, thank the Divine, it is warming up again. 
Hey, I even began writing a flash scene around the idea of All Hallow's Eve. This dark magician scene takes place in another realm, but ends up in Wolf Peak--unfortunately though, due to more massive interruptions I haven't progressed very far. 
So, the Beast Horsemanship Games...truth is, I've invented many a sports horsemanship game for my romance stories. I love it! Actually, I believe some of the games are inspired by my other lifetimes. And yes, like hell, I wish I could participate, really ride in these challenging tough competitions. 
In the good Atlantean times, for example, there were incredible and exciting Beast Games, which the Wolf Peak Games are modeled after--only to some extent. 
I had a dream once that I've never forgotten of competing with one of my Atlantean dogs, who outmaneuvered a huge snake in the immense show arena. 
Of course, in those antediluvian times anyone and any animal could be resurrected, and was most often brought back to life if death occurred. I would never have sacrificed my beloved animals to such a death. 
Whoever prevailed in the Games was the declared winner. This is because it wasn't a matter of life and death. It was about superior skill, intelligence, and indomitable courage. It was about superior genetics--who could breed and train the best animal companions. 
And it was about the grand gamesmanship spectacle.

A Highlander Halloween Visit To Wolf Peak Territory



*Surprise Highlander Visit* howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Ah, the Highlander, as played by Adrian Paul in the TV series--yes, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE. I definitely fell in love with the Highlander character bigtime. I adore history and sword-wielding alpha 'immortal' Scotsman. 

Yeah, yeah, I know I'm not the only one. 

Watching the very sexy Adrian Paul in historical flashbacks was sensual heaven for me. Yes, yes, yes! a romantic novel hero in action. And right there on my little TV screen. 

I am eternally grateful to Adrian Paul and all those involved in producing-making that incredible series. I easily lost myself in the epic 'Highlander' fantasy.  

Also, to be honest, there was something extraordinarily real about the series, as if I relived other lifetimes. 


Highlander

  • Adventure · TV-14 · Ended 1998
Taken from the film, Highlander, Duncan MacLeod, clansman of Connor in the film also finds he is being stalked by not only other immortals trying to kill him before the time of the gathering, but also a secret society of mortals who call themselves 'The Watchers' and also seem intent on killing him but "The Watchers" observe and record and never interfere. Duncan and the other immortals can only be killed by decapitation and often live for centuries.

So, how did the *Adrian Paul* Highlander arrive in Wolf Peak Territory for a Halloween visit? An absolutely spectacular surprise, except of course to the Circle of Witches--who kept the exciting secret. 

The answer: because in another dimension he's real, a real immortal Highlander. In our earthly dimension his story shows up as mere entertainment, as a flat hologram. 

Get it? 

Well, the gist is that dimensional doors are quite handy, and given the Wolf Peak community is always welcoming to the Good Ones ...and there is a plethora of fantabulous eateries, shops, themed nightclubs like the Midnight Stardust Supperclub, and of course, unique sporting events ...plus there's the chance to meet with shifters of all types and stripes, with supernaturals of every mythical breed... and it's rumored Adrian Paul, the Highlander, has deep yen to ride a battle unicorn... a small herd has just made Wolf Peak Territory their home. 



COME IN YOUR FAVORITE DRESS KILT... YES, THIS COSTUME EVENT WAS IN HONOR OF DUNCAN MACLEOD... AND GREAT FUN WAS HAD BY ALL 


HISTORY RE-ENACTMENTS CELEBRATING THE HIGHLANDER SERIES FOLLOW... GREAT, FUN EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE PEAK... FOR THE ADULTS AS WELL.. AND THE ROMANTIC COSTUMES, THE DANCING










HOW *ROMANCE NOVEL* DELICIOUS... 





LOTS OF SWORD PLAY AND PRACTICE IN WOLF PEAK TERRITORY ...

Season of the Werewolf In the Peak


October howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Tis the Season of the Werewolf. Yep, with howling step and moon-racing pep, they arrive, along with the Peak's Circle of Witches attired in their campy witchy gear. Then, there are the fearsome but friendly vampires--appearing and disappearing--who have made the Peak home. Yes, included are many creatures of the night, the mythical beasts like the Unicorns and Pegasuses and dragons...the fairies, pixies, angels...and, of course, the ghosties and ghoulies. 



Absolutely, lots of Halloween-inspired, spooktacular events happening in Wolf Peak Territory. The werewolves creep about playing tricks on everyone, and gently scaring the little ones. Of course, these beastly wolf critters also hand out yummy candy treats afterward. This has become a yearly tradition, especially in the Peak's small yet rapidly growing town of Moonrise Lake. 


For the adult population of the Peak, there are OctoberFest and Halloween celebrations galore. Among the most favored are the numerous costume balls. One is the *Come As Your Favorite Werewolf Ball*...it's black tie with elegant dancing music. Quite the enjoyable contrast, indeed. 


Who can be the biggest, baddest, scariest Werewolf ever, a new contest in Moonrise Lake...all for All Hallow's Eve Fun.


The latest idea for the Midnight Stardust Supperclub is the Purple Fantasy Costume Ball. A bit of a break from the more traditional Halloween festivities.

The Trickster-Chaos Summer From Hell


September howls and yowls, shapeshifter lovers. 

Where to begin??? No place good, that's for sure. The sorry truth is, it would take me several pages to even try to explain the ordeal I've been through—and to list the plethora of challenges plaguing me. 

So, I have to ask this question: Have the chiggers been weaponized, the fleas too? Yes, this has been an unusually wet summer. But, really? I have to change clothes three or four times a day. I've been taking lots of garlic, using lots of natural remedies. It all helps... but... 

Oh, and how about those nasty, nasty pin-sized ticks? But mygawd, the serious problems have just been endless. Yep, three months now of ***The Trickster-Chaos Summer From Hell***.  

Of course, I haven't had time to post, to even breathe sometimes. Let alone work on my Subscribe Star story, TREASURE MOON SEDUCTION. 

However, I did just get my guest post for Delilah Devlin's blog done, and emailed to her.  The title is: Dancing On the Fringes of Paranormal Subgenres, and will be featured on September 6that ~https://www.delilahdevlin.com/blog~ 

On the good side, overall the weather temps have been milder than normal, and I've had several toad sighting, all them adorable, of course. ~lots of sighs~ 

Here's hoping I'll be able to post again, sooner rather than later. 

HAPPY READING, EVERYONE!

Trouble On Treasure Moon At Subscribe Star


Okay, Another Sexy Pirate. However, Not My Hero, Dzonn, the Dark Rogue ... Although, They Are Drinking Buddies. 

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.
