The Grinch Who Stole My Time…

I went to post on Wednesday before baby got here, which makes it nearly impossible to do and got a network error. Tried later. Network error. Later. Same thing. With watching baby and running dogs in and out, and having to take her to her mother’s work to see Grinch-themed gingerbread cakes at Spring ISD, and decorated doors in the Nutrition Center, and have a Christmas party, I didn’t have time to mess with it. I’d shut my computer down twice, still no resolution. So later that night, I finally managed to reinstall Firefox and I was up and running.

Then in the middle of the night, violent thunderstorms hit and I was up, disconnecting my main PC and laptop, and couldn’t sleep because of the storm. I ended up taking video of the lightning and rain.

I managed finally to get 2500 words done on Claiming the White Bear yesterday. But I totally missed doing the blog again!

So here it is, Friday already and the Grinch stole two of my days! Seriously!

But I’m going to get him back and show him I can make up for it with my writing today. Really.

Have a very happy Grinch-less day!!

Took Time to Play

A pelican doing a dance. A walk on the boardwalk at the zoo.

I took my grand-daughter to the reading program they had at the Woodlands Mall Barnes and Noble, but most of the kids were about 4 years old and she’s only 20 mos. Needless to say, she sat still for 2 books and by the third, she was ready to get into the coloring pages. So we left. The lady had to read three more books and that wasn’t going to work for us. lol

We had lunch, I signed books, and I showed her all the cool stuff at the mall. She actually showed me the sculpture of the bird each time we passed through that way and I finally took a picture of it. It’s huge. But that was her favorite sculpture.

And she fell asleep on the way over there and on the way back, so good day! Plus, she helped me to put pine needles on the flowerbed while I raked.

But, I didn’t get any writing done. Some days are just a time to play.

Hope your day is going great!

Not to Spoil a Fantasy, but…

Being a Fairy Princess

When I was a child, I wanted to be a fairy princess…but then you grow up and you learn that castles take a lot of upkeep–taxes, maintenance, and well, upkeep. Can you imagine dusting it? And then there are the fairy gardens. Having gardens of my own, that never look like this, I know just how much work they are.

And even if you could afford to hire all of it done, then you have all the issues of hired labor–insurance, salaries, grumbling.

But in a fairy-tale world? They don’t mention all of that. Okay, speaking of the real world, just fed baby and we’re going to take a walk in the cold, but it’s finally light out enough. But you know what? We’ll be fairy princesses on our walk because we can be.

Have a great one!!! Be a prince or a king or a queen or a princess. You can be! And have fun.

Do You Ever Feel You’re Fighting a Dragon?

Sometimes you have to just battle a dragon, or two, to get what you want.

Back to writing! Have a great day!!!!

Watch out for the Vultures

I think of death and dying when I think of vultures, and these poor critters are in trouble. But really, the vultures are scavengers, cleaning up the leftovers, so these animals are just living in a symbiotic relationship.

My mom and dad had a great sense of humor, and they were horror fans, so one year, my mom got my dad the cutest stuffed vulture, and they used to switch it from her pillow to his. You see where I get my humor from now? It’s not my fault!

Hope everyone is enjoying their day. We had pouring rain all day and night and were under flash flood warnings. And I got 4,000 written on Claiming the White Bear, over halfway done. Yay!

Off to work, have a wonderful day and if the vultures start circling, maybe it’s not you they’re after. Maybe…

Telling a Story in Pictures

A wolf wanting to play, but Spirit, the horse, is getting all the attention.

And Daz, the doberman, getting into the candy canes, and do you see the partially eaten cookie? Just when Santa is leaving too. But Daz doesn’t care. The presents are already under the tree.

Back to the book! It’s going to rain all day and we have flood warnings in effect. A good day to stay home and just….write. Have a great day!!!

Sometimes You Gotta Just Play

When the baby is here I often can’t get anything done with writing–too many interruptions and I can’t concentrate. With photoshop manipulations, I can add something while she is watching TV or playing and still keep an eye on her.

The cougars in both scenes are from Daz3D, the black wolf is also, the snowmen from pixelsquid, the white squirrel, white wolf, and white havanese from Renderosity, the little tractor by the cabin, etsy, the snow from Pretty Actions, the sun ray, not sure, and the backgrounds from KCC.

So that’s what I did. I just played.

Off to work. I have 4 days of pure writing work to get done, no baby distractions, so I need to hop to it!

Hope you are enjoying your day!!!

Wolves for Christmas

I’ve picked up some of the ornaments at wolf reserves or they were gifts.

Spent the day rereading Claiming the  White Bear and added 1,000 words. Not as much as I wanted to, but when proofing, editing, and reading, since I have been working on three other stories and needed to resettle myself in their story, I never add as much as when I’m writing scenes.

Okay, baby is here and I have to run. She’s eating me out of house and home. lol

Have a lovely Wednesday!

Done! Woodland Fae!

It’s raining leaves in the wind, but these are some trees in bloom that I managed to capture before they are bare.

I need to have a couple of beta readers read Woodland Fae, and it’s done! But the story is written and I proofed it all the way through.

In the meantime, I’ve got to get back to Claiming the White Bear. And no, I don’t write a book in a week. lol But I’ve started these quite a while back, not sure on Woodland Fae, but on Claiming the White Bear, before Christmas of last year.

Have a great day!!! I have baby again tomorrow and so today, I’ve got to get hopping. Oh, library day was fun. She was soooo good. Next week is their last program until some time after the new year, but Barnes and Noble has a children’s program, so I’ll take her to those. Off to work!

The Witch and the Jaguar Video Book Trailer

My computer has been hanging up all morning and I’m trying to entertain a sleepy baby. But I did finish Woodland Fae yesterday. I think. I’m proofreading and over halfway done!!! Next up: Claiming the White Bear.

I changed days so that I have baby when I can take her to library toddler time (first time for me to go to our library here–her too), and to Barnes and Noble toddler time on a different day.  This is all exciting firsts. I have no idea how it will work. She’s very good about sitting still for story time with me and watching videos for a whole movie, but with other kids who are wiggling around, not sure. Plus, I’ll have to find my way to the library. GPS and me are at odds sometimes.

But I’m this will be something fun that she enjoys to do a couple of days a week, as long as the weather is good.

And the print version of The Witch and the Jaguar is now available!

I’m off and running! Have a fun witchy day!!

A full moon on Halloween means magic and mayhem are sure to follow.

Erin Hawkins is a JAG agent with the jaguar shifters police force and she’s all set to attend the shifters’ Halloween party as a sexy witch, the first time she’s not been on a mission in three years. Between the full moon’s appearance and it being Halloween, havoc and magic prevail when she and a musketeer, an off-duty cop with the human police force and jaguar shifter, Bryce Jenkins, helps her thwart a bank robbery in progress. He wins her over with his sword-wielding antics, until she realizes he broke up her brother and his girlfriend’s relationship the previous year.

Bryce has wanted to take out Erin ever since he saw her in jaguar training, but he’s not sure she’d be interested in someone who doesn’t work for the jaguar policing force. Still, he’s determined to show her a good time and give him a chance and to straighten out a matter about him and her brother’s former girlfriend.

From home invasions to bank robberies, have they got what it takes to watch each other’s backs, eliminate the bad guys, and have fun too? They will, if it doesn’t kill them first!
