Cat Tails Poll #4: Cast your vote to win!
Saturday, October 31st, 2009

All winners will be announced on Sunday. So, be sure to cast your vote today,
then post a comment so I know who voted!

Last day, last poll—promise! And guess what the last question is all about…

Yeah, who’s our heroine? I don’t know about you, but when I start to dream about my story, it all starts with him. And I’m already jealous as hell of her.

I have to get over it. I know I can’t make him happy because I’m nowhere in the story. But I’m going to fall in love with him just the same. Don’t you want the people you love to be happy? She has to be perfect for him. Not that she’s going to be “perfect.” I’d seriously hate her if she was.

As I’m writing this, our bad boy hero is ahead by only one vote. Y’all were no help at all narrowing down that field of possible testosterone donors! So guess what I have to do? No, I’m not going to choose. I figure our girl will get romanced by the bad boy, but the local sheriff is going to be torn between duty to his pride and protecting the innocent woman from that other man. Maybe the two guys have tangled before over a woman. I’m not saying that they’ll share, but there’s the possibility now. Just depends on how this story progresses.

So who is she? You get to choose. Don’t leave me with an amibiguous answer again or I’ll have to hurt you!

Once again, vote for your favorite then post a comment so I know who voted! You’ll be entered to win a $10 gift certificate from! All poll winners will be announced on Sunday—tomorrow!!

    I definetly think you should be the heroine. I would love to see how hot and creative you can make this book with you in the spotlight. I really liked the reclusive author so thats what I voted for.

    Happy Halloween!!!!!

    I voted photographer cause I love photography. You know how you can get off track and forget everything going for that elusive picture.

    Sara! Oh! If I’m the heroine, both heroes will be frustrated with my curiosity.

    Brandy! You remember my mushroom pics, right? The photog can get plenty distracted too. Although you know she’s gonna have to pull her camera out a time or two when hero isn’t looking.

    I had to vote for the traveler. I know how hard it is to avoid wildlife on the road.

    I’m having a blast with this voting! I’m just picturing it as the questions come! I voted on Hunter with a grudge who may or may not know the panthers are shapeshifters. I like!

    I voted for the traveler.

  7. Lisa J
      · October 31st, 2009 at 9:26 am · Link

    I had to go with the author. You should get your own story. Maybe you could add a little chicken revenge to it.

    I’m going with the stranded traveler who wrecked her car.

    Delilah, I love the way this story is shaping up, and it’s great fun to have a hand in it.

    I voted for the woman who wrecks her car to protect the black panther.

    It shows her sensitivy and concern for the panther. And now that she’s stranded it gives her time to meet one up close and personal…



  10. Carol M
      · October 31st, 2009 at 10:05 am · Link

    I voted for the traveler. I’m glad she didn’t want to hit a black panther.

  11. Beverly Rowe
      · October 31st, 2009 at 10:36 am · Link

    I voted for the photographer. Just found that scenario most appealing, since I love to watch wildlife. Wouldn’t stalking a black panter be exciting???

  12. Delilah Devlin
      · October 31st, 2009 at 10:40 am · Link

    Christiana! I’m very familiar with the hazards of wildlife on the road. I lived in Texas for nine years, and during that time I hit three deer and a turkey.

    Caffey! I’m glad you’re having fun!

    Amy! Thanks for your vote!

    Lisa! Wouldn’t it be fun to have a writer from the city think she wants all that isolation—and the chickens. The guys are going to have to help her out.

  13. Delilah Devlin
      · October 31st, 2009 at 10:43 am · Link

    Maureen! Thanks for your vote!

    Sandie! I’m glad you’re having fun. The “sharing” hasn’t ended though. I’m going to be asking for titles!! So start thinking.

    Carol! I threw down the traveler, thinking it would be a no-go. Who’da thunk y’all would like that one?!

    Beverly! If it weren’t the fact of all those bugs—then yes!

  14. Teresa W.

    I voted for the stranded traveler!

    I voted for the author – think it would be fun hearing more of what’s in your head lol (of course it’s all from your head hahahahaha).

  16. Delilah Devlin
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:14 am · Link

    Teresa! Thanks for voting!

    Catslady! Yeah, it might be a little embarassing seeing what goes through my mind. :blush:

  17. Claudia
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:23 am · Link

    I voted for the reclusive author to inherit land. Photography is her hobby and wouldn’t it be really neat if she came across a beautiful black panther during one of her walks?

  18. Terri
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:29 am · Link

    Delilah you would make an awesome heroine!

    I voted for the reclusive author who inherits property from a distant relative.

  19. Delilah Devlin
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:29 am · Link

    Claudia! You clever girl! I love taking pictures—for research purposes and to post on my blog.

  20. Delilah Devlin
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:31 am · Link

    Terri! LOL! Of course she’ll have to be me about 15 years ago—and single.

  21. Gail
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:33 am · Link

    The author got my vote. Can’t wait to read this one!

  22. Rachel Lynne
      · October 31st, 2009 at 11:53 am · Link

    Delilah, I voted for the recluse. Maybe she writes steamy prose to live out the fantasies she is too shy to take part in? I see her maybe being more comfortable with animals than humans and she has lots of cats roaming the homestead and maybe she catches a glimpse of the big cat while trying to catch a feral tom …, Just thinking out loud. Whatever you do it will be great, of that I’m sure. Thanks for being such a great role model!

  23. Layla Chase
      · October 31st, 2009 at 1:30 pm · Link

    Although I’d love to see you write a recluse, (way too shy and retiring for one of your heroines) I figured the wildlife photographer would be more of a threat to a shifter who is protecting his pride. Whatever you choose will be wonderful and I can’t wait to read it. 😀

    I had a hard time trying to decide between the photographer and writer. I think you should combind them. LIke photographer/author who is on a lead, finds out she has inherited property from a distant relative in the area of search?

      · October 31st, 2009 at 1:36 pm · Link

    Even though I’d love for you to work your way into the handsome hero’s arms–if I can’t, you can’t either. So I voted for: Stranded traveler who wrecked her car trying to avoid hitting a black panther.

  26. Estella
      · October 31st, 2009 at 2:42 pm · Link

    I voted for the stranded traveler who wrecked her car.

  29. Eva S
      · October 31st, 2009 at 3:44 pm · Link

    I love taking pictures so I had to vote for the photographer, but she could be an author too…

  30. Jane

  37. Delilah Devlin
      · October 31st, 2009 at 8:55 pm · Link

    Neck and neck again! 🙄

    And Rasha! I didn’t trick or treat or have anyone show up at the door–so no costume other than my writer’s uniform (sweats). I live in the boonies behind an electric gate and football field off the main road, and NO ONE comes to the door!

  38. Rasha
      · October 31st, 2009 at 9:10 pm · Link

    Well no one came to my door either. I can understanding the quest for privacy 🙂 sweats huh, I wonder what I can pass my red pajamas as.
