Sunsets and Bears and Books!

I went out to get the mail and saw this sunset and had to capture it!

Every day is a day filled with a goal or six.

I recently read a post where the author said she was bored. I just can’t even imagine.

I have 3 Matheson bear orders I need to complete–they sent me the wrong fabric from Scotland yesterday–my fault. They changed up a scarf for a square and it’s too small to use to make a sash for the bears. So I had to reorder. I received another clan bear order this morning, different clan, MacPherson–headed for Australia, and luckily, I do have that fabric.

I’m still working on a trip to Minnesota to see a fan and friend who is taking me to see the International Wolf Center in Ely. I was also interviewed in their magazine once, which was really cool, given I write about wolf shifters that are based on wolves, and setting up a book signing at a store up there also, and making sure they’ll have my most current release on hand!

I’ve been trying to come up with a more exciting opening on The Viking’s Highland Lass. I had to rewrite Cougar’s Mate for that same reason. Sometimes I have to get to know my characters a bit before I can figure out where to take them. In this one, it’s action packed, lots of humor, romance and suspense, much like my other books, and not at all how I started it before. Well, some of it is. Because some of the scenes did have that forward movement and lots of what I like: action, humor, romance and suspense.

I tried writing for one publisher once, but I had too much suspense in the story. I tried writing for another and I had too much humor. 🙂 I tried writing for another and I had too much romance. All three of those lines folded. No more.  Crashed. Burned. Vanished.

Maybe, just maybe, readers would have loved those stories that had action, adventure,  humor, romance, and suspense all lumped in one. Oh… yeah, they do!

Anyway, so I got the final critique from one last reviewer, and so need to make the changes and then Cougar’s Mate will be ready to go!


So though  I thought my main focus today was The Viking’s Highland Lass

I have to revise my plans and spend the day revising Cougar’s Mate, then getting it ready to publish. 🙂

I have no time to be bored!

What about you? Are you ever bored?

  1. Bored? Once in a while maybe, mostly with the weather. I love to be outdoors, but for the most part I am really good at entertaining myself. Someone once told me that meant I was good company. lol I hope that is true, now if I could just figure out how to make a profit out of my own entertainment! ha ha

  2. 🙂 Yeah, the weather can definitely get boring–but for me, it’s the constant summer heat and no rain. LOL on being good company. I’ve always been good at entertaining myself. But then it can depend. If I’m stuck in a boring situation, that can make for a different scenario. Listening to a boring lecture, or something, where I feel I can’t get out of it.

    Making a profit out of your own entertainment, now that is the key! 🙂
