Nearing the End…

Last night before I hunkered down to work on the story some more, I made a video of one of my earlier Silver Town wolf books. I thought I had made one for all of the books, but I hadn’t.

They’re fun for me to make, a small visual to show what the book is about. I worked until midnight on the story, adding 4,000 words. I’m over word count and still working on it. I wanted to finish it. Wanted to see the happily ever after. Wanted to have it where I could now read a whole book and fix any mistakes I need to fix. Because the end is never really the end.

 

I wanted to sleep this morning, because I was up so late, but Max wanted me to get up. Ugh. It’s usually Tanner who will let me know I’ve been sleeping too long. It was only 6:30, for heaven’s sake. 🙂 But this little sleeping dragon has it right. Snoozing among the dianthus. Every fairy garden needs a dragon, don’t you know?

Off to write! The end is near!

Have a great one!

Tiger Mix Ganzania & the Fairy Princess

These flowers are all from the same plant. Aren’t they pretty? I like variety. In my reading, gardening, life. It’s what makes life interesting.

We walked five miles with baby yesterday, and when we got home, I was determined to take a picture of her as soon as I could get her to sleep.

The fae claim she’s theirs. She was “dancing” around on the quilt, no sleeping for photos, grandma. I was afraid I had blurred arms and legs, but they turned out well. She recognizes me, but with a camera in place of my face, she was kind of wondering what that was all about. 🙂

 

My dad used to say, “You’re getting sleepy,” in a hypnotic way, which just made us laugh. I use it on baby, but it doesn’t work on her either.

red daylily 900 003

As promised, here is the red daylily that was the rescue plant from the hardware store. I think it’s my favorite daylily! I had no idea what I had brought home. It didn’t flower, but you can see it’s ready to bud out all over. 🙂

Okay, off to write before it’s grandbaby time.

Have a great one!!!

Uniqueness Wins Out

I rarely see a robin, and never that sits long enough for me to capture in a shot. And the pink zinnia are the first flower seeds I’ve planted that had any success. This is the first flower, but more are coming.

I’ll have to showcase the Tiger Mix Ganzania flowers. The orange and yellow one is yet another version that popped out yesterday. They fold up and pop out a new flower, but most are different. It was one of two rescued plants that were dying at a hardware store, and they’re my favorite because of all the unique flowers.

And I was excited to learn that an unnamed plant I rescued at the same hardware store last spring is a gorgeous daylily, unique color from my others. I’ll show pictures of it soon.

In writing, each of my stories has to be unique also. I’m finishing up book 25 in the wolf series. They’re all stand alone, so no need to read them in order. I turned in Flight of the White Wolf–and now am finishing up, and finishing up, and finishing up The Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf. I have had a bounty hunter heroine before, but she was trying to take down a Mobster, the same one that turned her and murdered her mother in Dreaming of the Wolf. In this one, the bounty hunter is after a wolf. But not just any wolf–a Silver wolf.

She should have known what would happen when she went into Silver Town–a wolf pack run town to take down one of their own. 🙂

Dreaming of the Wolf

Is he real or only a vision of his deepest desires…

Book 8

The Silver Wolves rule!

Have a great, and uniquely interesting day!

Done! Done! Done! And Hummingbird Flowers!

It’s always such a relief to finish edits on a book so Flight of the White Wolf is back to the editor. Woohoo! But it doesn’t end there. It will come back two more times for edits. At least.

That means next on the agenda is the grocery store.

After that??? Back to The Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf. I’m nearing the end on word count, yet have a long ways to go to finish it. It’s fun stopping though to work on a finished book, reminding me I can do it with this one too.

In the meantime, I got my butterfly and hummingbird plants planted too, and dug up more grass that I need to remove to create another flowerbed.

These are: Silky Red Asclepias, Cuphea Pink Bunny Face, Ruttya Fruticosa Jammy Mouth, and Salvia Dancing Flame, Pentas where the hummingbird is hovering, Vermillion Firecracker Cuphea where the hummingbird is feeding.

I had a hummingbird hovering over the birdseed dish yesterday once I got the plants in the ground. Now I just need to figure out the settings for speedy little birds and get to photographing! But AFTER I get groceries and work on Bounty.

Have a fun-filled hummingbird day!

Guardian of the Secret Garden

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia, Book 2


An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.

Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.

Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.

And that’s the beginning of the trouble.

First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…

Gardens dwarf statue 900 020

When I saw this dwarf in the gardens, I thought of my fantasy trilogy. Which, I need to still finish. The story is: I wrote the first two, had the idea for the third, couldn’t sell the first two, this was in the dinosaur time before ebooks and indie publishing, and so I put it on hold. THEN, I sold other books to publishers and was so busy writing them, and new books, and more new series, and more and more and more, and…well, you get the idea, don’t you?

I have started on it, but I have edits on Flight to finish today, need to finish writing Bounty, and I’ve been thinking about Billionaire.

*sigh*

But right after this, it’s time to reread Flight and make sure it’s ready to turn in.

I did finally plant the flowers this morning, and dug up some of the grass. I need to keep working on that though. 🙂  And I saw a hummingbird flying around the birdseed feeders. The flowers I planted are all hummingbird flower plants and butterflies love them too.

Some days I want to just slip into a fantasy.

Enjoy your day!!! Hope that it is just as magical. 🙂

Butterflies in the Garden

And they even posed for me. One is a skipper, one a buckeye.

Having trouble with firefox this morning and posting anything anywhere so trying to get anything done quickly isn’t happening.

Only 5 more chapters to edit on Flight of the White Wolf before I need to turn in and then back to working on the ending of Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf.

🙂 Have a wonderful Friday!!!!

Storms and Flowers

All that grumbling last night, thunder galore. Did it rain? I don’t think so. We had 80-100% chance all day yesterday…but although we had all kinds of thunder, I think my grass is wet because of the sprinklers. The roads are completely dry.

But it is cool this morning, so that’s wonderful!

Pictures above are a rose covered arbor, dianthus,  peach roses, a rosebush trained against a fence and my storm clouds. The rose and dianthus are mine. The arbor and the rose against the fence were at Hope Farms.

Maybe I can plant my plants this morning. Or not. I need to get back to the edits.

Hope Farms Gardens

Had a ball at the gardens–picked up 4 different hummingbird/butterfly flowering plants, and just thoroughly enjoyed the day. It makes me want to visit the local arboretum and other gardens now!! 🙂 <3

http://www.hopefarmsgardens.com/

But, I need to help with baby, and working on Flight of the White Wolf edits, and then back to finishing up Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf. And I need to plant my four butterfly plants! 🙂 <3

Oh, and I apologize for the blurry pictures, needed to set my settings for faster flying birds, but on our walk on Monday, the bird was a Swallowtail Kite. I’d never seen one before, so exciting! I figured he’d be gone before I had a chance to pull out my camera and when he wasn’t, I finally managed to pull it out and get a few blurry shots. lol But I wanted to learn what it was. Next time, MAYBE, I’ll be more prepared. I was pushing the baby stroller instead. 🙂

Have a lovely day.
