Coronaboomers Next?

Maybe some hope! A Japanese flu drug is effective in treating coronavirus.

Meanwhile in other news: A cheating UK hubby is “in a blind panic” over his extramarital affair after contracting the coronavirus on a secret trip to Italy with his mistress.~~New York Post

And I created this because I was wondering:

And a bright spot from one of my fans: Why I got my Informed Delivery Package Delivered email nearly 10 hours after my package arrived, I will never know…But it was book mail so you bet I drove out to the mailbox at 2am! ~~Tamara Kasyan

I’m up to 3500 on Red Wolf, still don’t know where I’m going with it. And Seducing the Vampire, 30,000.

Hope you are staying safe! Wishing everyone a safe journey through these trying times.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Amid the growing crisis ongoing, I wish everyone luck, good health, and a means to survive financially. I’m glad to see some helping others out in this crisis.

In the meantime, I’m TRYING to stay focused on my writing. Still can’t come up with the opening or the plot for the new book. Still working on Seducing the Vampire–up to 28,000 words on it.

Try to have a sense of humor to help you get through the crisis.

An alternative to Kleenix–washable hankies. I ordered them from Amazon and they got here in a couple of days.

An alternative to paper napkins–washable cloth napkins. I’ve had those forever, and they last forever.

I’m still weeding and planting plants that I bought a few days ago and trimming back crape myrtles to train them into trees. I’m trying to stay home as much as possible until I run out of food.

Have a great day and may the luck of the Irish be with you!

Give Up Paper Towels! Remember Towels?

Save on paper towel waste, cutting down trees, landfill, money! Use towels. These are all microfiber towels and they’re not only absorbent, but they dry quickly so you don’t have wet towels you’re trying to dry your hands off on constantly. I had some I used to clean windows and mirrors because they don’t leave streaks and then I just wash them. I bought more so I can use them to dry my hands since I’m gardening so much, handling dirt, pulling weeds, planting flowers, every time I take the dogs out to potty.

I had become dependent on paper towels in the kitchen. I’d planned to switch to towels before all this hoarding began. This was the push I needed to do it.

So join the revolution/ecology movement/conservation. Give up dependency on paper towels!

Braided Hibiscus with Multiple Colors

I finished Vampire Redemption and am in that I-don’t-know-what-to-write phase for the next red wolf book. I’ve been researching and just setting up some of the details–what the characters look like from the previous book, occupations, a little bit about them, not much, because they were secondaries, so it’s not much to go on, which makes it fun as I develop them. So I need to do some kind of world turned upside down for them. They know each other from being in the same wolf pack, work at the same police department, so something has to change for them. They need their own goals–something they can’t live without. The usual.

I want to jump in and just start writing them, get it going, but I have to do some more thinking. In the meantime, I’m rereading Dangerous Liaisons–another adult vampire book I had started. I need about 50K on that to finish it up. Bite of the Vampire needs about 30K… See? I have tons of books I need to finish, but Red Wolf is on deadline.

Image may contain: 1 person, possible text that says 'So i said to Arnie "where did you get those toilet rolls?" He said "aisle B, back"'
Image may contain: 1 person, possible text that says 'Aussie Stuff for Aussies SI YOUR HAND WASH, YOUR WeT WIPES AND YOUR TOILET PAPER!'

Unfortunately, this already happened! Not with Arnie, but with armed robbers going after toilet paper, of all things. The new gold.

Shaking head.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Until further notice: No one can stop by unannounced. We ain't sick, we just don't trust you around our Toilet Paper'

Have a great day!

I’m NEARLY finished with Vampire Redemption! Turned in Highland Wolf yesterday. But I’m going to the plant place, still looking for a couple of red azaleas. I just saw that the braided hibiscus has yellow flowers too. So it has red, yellow and pink. Just as pretty as can be. Now if it will only survive.

Have a great day, and don’t panic!

Happy Friday the 13th!

Remember how I said I bought a hibiscus tree that had pink flowers for my granddaughter? Well, it’s a braided tree and this morning it had red and orange ones too. Woohoo! The only bad thing is that it’s supposed to be fussy about things. I don’t do fussy.

Schools are closed all this week for Spring Break, but now they’re going to be closed all next week also because of the coronavirus situation.

I feel for China and Italy and everywhere else where this is so hard hit. We might be too. We just don’t know.

Be safe! Wishing the world throughout better days–and a way to beat this bug.

10th Anniversary of Legend of the White Wolf Coming!

Mar 31, 2020 10th Anniversary of Legend of the White Wolf (new novella included)

Legend of the White Wolf: In a world of snow and ice, their passions blaze…

Book 4

Award-Winning Author introduces the next installment of her paranormal romance series

A 2008 Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year Award Winner!
Night Owl Romance Reader Choice Award for Best Paranormal 2008

In this fourth in Spear’s series, Private Eye Cameron MacPherson and Faith O’Mallery are both on quests that lead them into the world of magical wolves…

Cameron arrives in the Canadian Arctic to search for his partners in his P.I. business who are late returning from a hunting trip. Faith is there to discover what her father had seen in the same area years earlier that had made him lose touch with reality–man-wolves, he called them.

The two tumble into an icy world of enemies bent on destroying the lupus garou kind. As they turn into lupus garou themselves, and bond with the pack that only they can rescue from destruction, Cameron and Faith find their soul mates in each other.

So that’s coming up next!! Soon! If you have the ebook already, you can redownload it and get the updated version and the new novella.

I got through 15 chapters yesterday of Highland Wolf. 11 more to go for proofing. And then I’ll need to write the acknowledgements and turn it in.

I need to write the dedication, acknowledgements and one more scene for Vampire Redemption and then turn it over to my beta readers.

And I still need to plant plants and ship off more books.

I’ve already done laundry, dishes, put out the trash, walked around the block to get my mail, and put it all in the trash, taken the dogs out, cleaned up after them, fed them, taken the dogs out, cleaned up after them, and now it’s time to get to work!

Have a super fun day!!! I’m off to start mine!

So I went to blog yesterday, and they changed everything up again. Please, leave things alone. *sigh*

Red rosebud getting ready to bloom. I love red flowers in the garden. I love purple, but red is really showy. And the butterflies and hummingbirds agree. The bees love any color. They’ll “flock” to my holly’s white flowers in spring even. But I have yellow, lavender, hot pink flowers, and still, the hummingbirds and butterflies prefer the red flowers above all else.

And, did I mention it’s showy? When I see a row of red roses or red-flowering crape myrtles or azaleas, they catch my eye more than white or any other color. I love the combination of red and purple. And some yellow makes for a pretty scene. But green evergreens help to bring it all together. In my humble opinion.

So for the last two days, I was trying to work on Vampire Redemption, Highland Wolf edits, and shipped off books to readers. I also dropped off my tax paperwork, and picked up plants and dirt, the fun part of the day!

Image may contain: plant, flower, table, nature, outdoor and indoor

I picked up red pentas, a hummingbird and butterfly magnet, and a pink hibiscus, they didn’t have red, so I got pink for my granddaughter because that is her favorite color, and a couple of citronella plants. Now, they said they stave off mosquitoes. NOT true. They have to have their leaves crushed to do that. False advertising!

Okay, so I’m working of vampire redemption edits this morning, have 1 more scene to write. I need to start proofing Highland Wolf and then send it off. And I need to ship another 30 books or so today. Oh, and plant!!!

I planted 20 of the pentas last night, a bunch of flower seeds, have more, and I need to plant the hibiscus and some salvia seeds.

Have a fun day! Mine is happily busy. No little one. Spring Break. Yay, for Grandma! Which means I really have to get stuff done with the unexpected extra time on my hands. Yay!

Mushrooms were day 6 (the egg is buried under them). I was reading about how you should eat slowly, drink water before getting seconds so you feel fuller, use a smaller plate (I think that’s a great idea), eat 5 vegetable servings a day…hmm, I usually eat 3. And basically, break habit routines. Mine is eating dessert after a meal. I don’t need it. I’m full. Yet I crave it. So I need to break that habit.

I’m halfway through proofing Vampire Redemption. And the taxes are ready to go to the accountant, yay! And I need to start autographing books to go readers and get them ready to ship. I already received the promo stuff for the Billionaire story coming out in May, so I need to start writing those blogs. But also, I have the 10th Anniversary release of Legend of the White Wolf coming out THIS MONTH, so I need to get on that. I’m waiting on the other beta reader’s comments for Highland Wolf so I can edit it and proof it one last time and turn it in. Then I’m off to write Red Wolf.

Back to proofing on Vampire Redemption. It’s the long-awaited sequel to Huntress for Hire.

Have a super fun day! I’m waiting for it to warm up!

I Want to Garden!

My daughter brought over a tomato plant she started from seed. It’s the biggest one she has and she doesn’t know how it got that big when all the rest are still just little. So I’m excited to make it grow really big!

I took my granddaughter to the store to get a little jacket because she keeps getting dropped off with no warm clothes and it’s cold in the mornings, oftentimes. Of course, we had to take home flowers. My favorite are purple, hers are pink. So you can tell which she picked. She also liked the red and yellow ones that looked like a darker pink.

Image may contain: flower, plant and nature

Well, I’m still continuing with a different vegetable every day. I picked up some corn on the cob and fresh spinach for a couple of the days.

I’m off to do the despicable taxes. I keep telling myself: And this too shall pass. IF I keep working at it and GET IT DONE.

I want to write. And garden.

Oh, oh, oh, I got the copies of 10th Anniversary release of Legend of the White Wolf, releasing this month. The 10th anniversary copies have been delayed every release, so I’m excited to get them in early so I can take pictures and do promo.

Okay, back to the taxes. I swear every year I will do these earlier, but I must admit I believe this is the earliest I’ve ever done them.

Have a beautiful day!!!
