For My Birthday, I Got a Nightmare…

Okay, so let me explain. I had a Windows 7 and they said they were no longer going to support updates and so I asked for Windows 10 for my birthday. My SIL gave up on waiting for it to install last night, so I did what I could when it came up. But, I can’t get logged into my blog, I’ve lost several actions I use all the time on Photoshop, I can’t get my email uploaded on it, I’ve had to reinstall tons of stuff, and so I finally gave up and am on my laptop for the moment because I need to get my word count.

Other than that, the day is great. Don’t you love changing things out so that it’s new and better? Not.

Have a great one!!!

When Fans Can’t Put the Book Down…

There is no higher compliment than this for an author:

Michelle Scaff “Per usual, Terry Spear is a line jumper. What sucks is I really need to go to bed and I can’t put Seal Wolf Surrender down! It’s such an easy read but my “let me just finish this chapter” has failed me 3 times because interesting things keep happening. Once I finish this (either tonight or tomorrow) then it’s on to the TBR shelf. Unless I order the next cougar book. “

Lola Faber “Thanks Terry which word to use?
Is ^hard /difficult^?
To put down when you are getting to the action 🤔 but is time to prepare supper…😀 l have an almost 48 years scheduled 6:00pm Supper TIME…
I will let him know he’s on his own.”

That’s what we strive for and while I’m struggling to write the next book, it makes me want to do it again and again.

Thanks to my fans who encourage me to keep on going!

And, that’s what I need to get back to! Have a great weekend!!!

Let Your World be Your Imagination

The cat stole away on the steampunk boat that crashed into the rocks. Steampunk search and rescue is out in force for the missing boat. Looks like they’ve found them. Original photo was of Cornwall, by Dawn Cox, but I added layers of water, skies, and a new cliff.

Kids are out of school today for the summer. And I have corgi duty all next week. Otherwise, I’m writing!

Happy sailing!

Brushes and Layers in Photoshop–Woodland Friends

I’m not really that great at using brushes, but I was playing around with adding the moon and some stardust that way. Everything else is layers–the bear, owl, wolf, pond, grasses, textures, and color layers.

I’m shipping the last 20 autographed books today. We’re supposed to have thunderstorms, had some rain last night, but it might hold off until this afternoon. So fingers crossed. Otherwise, I’ll have to wait. Don’t want to ship off wet books.

Now, it’s time to get back to the book.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to add deeper characterization on the story, and I think I have one part of it. The heroine is afraid of cliffs, and I have several of them in the story, so I will have to work that in whenever she encounters them, and the backstory of why she’s afraid of cliffs. Now it gets fun. Creating deeper characters makes them much more real.

Aren’t we all afraid of something? It’s what makes us…unique.

Have a super day! I’m looking forward to the rain.

All about the Money…

Granddaughter’s here, so am trying to get this out while she’s playing and watching Finding Dory.

When I was making this it made me think of:

Money, money, money, M…O…N….E…Y
O’Jays–For the Love of Money.

If you listen to the music, don’t blame me if it gets stuck in your head. It did in mine. LOL

Okay, I’m off to work on signing more books to ship. Hope to get the rest of them to the post office today. Maybe tomorrow. We’ll be playing in the wading pool later. Very hot, even at 5 am.

If you have SEAL Wolf Surrender already, hope you’re loving it! Have a fun day!!!

Steampunk Captures the Imagination

Do you see the cat that hitched a ride on the airship? I created this composite using several different layers of clouds. I never thought of doing that until I saw on DeviantArt where an artist mentioned how she had combined clouds to create her free spectacular clouds to give away. So I started out with just a group of pretty clouds on a blue sky, and then began to add and add and add. On the next version, I added a galaxy kind of sky on top of the clouds and it gave it a whole different effect.

The steampunk airship is from Roy3D on DeviantArt.

More of a galaxy version.

So I don’t have the baby today, yay! Because I was at parties all weekend and have been struggling to just get my word count of 2,000 each day. That gives me today to try and catch up just on that. I still need 22,000 words just to reach word count.

I’m off and writing! Have a beautiful day!!!

Remember the Fallen

It’s Memorial Day, observed, and I wished to take a moment to give tribute to those who have fallen during their time in active service.

We’re celebrating my son-in-law’s birthday today. He doesn’t know it, but I’ve decorated everything in Spiderman decorations, since that’s his favorite superhero.

I’m behind on my writing again, and I think my daughter will be taking care of her daughter tomorrow due to the holiday, so hope to catch up a little!

Have a beautiful day!!! The partying starts at 3, so trying to get some writing done!!! More books have gone out. Still have about 20 to sign and ship.

What Did I Do Yesterday?

Have you ever lost a day? I planned to write 3,000 words on my book, but somehow I managed 2,000 and the rest of the day…well, what happened to it? Yes, I weeded. Yes, I walked. I printed out more labels for books to ship.

But somehow I managed to waste the rest of the day. Maybe I needed to? Maybe I didn’t need to and I needed to concentrate. I’m at the stage where I don’t know what to write, which is some of my problem. So I do other stuff, come back to it, do other stuff, come back to it, and nothing is coming.

Will try to do better today! Have a beautiful and MEMORABLE day.

Cardinal Daddy and Baby

I love observing animal behavior. The baby has been eating on his own with his sister all this time. But here comes daddy cardinal and baby is opening his beak, flapping his wings, as if he were in the nest still, needing nourishment.

Daddy obliges, but then he was back to foraging for himself.

Silver Town Wolf: Home for the Holidays. It might sound like it’s a Hallmark Classic, but it’s my regular paranormal romantic suspense–dead bodies, ghosts, wolf shifters, romance, you know, the usual.

I’m off to write! Trying to get 3,000 words today. Managed 1,000 yesterday on baby day, but also got 60 books ready to ship, another 30 to go.

Have a beautiful day!!!

Book Giveaway Done!

I have 10th anniversary releases for these 4 books coming out either this year, next year, or last year, so I realized I needed to clear out some space for the new books with the new book covers and I did a Facebook giveaway and 90 books later, they’re all gone. Or, at least they’re all spoken for. I still have to sign them and ship them all.

My granddaughter’s here, so we took a walk before it gets too hot, and we HAVE to go to the grocery store. I ran out of potatoes. Horrors! I hope to go early because it will be 90 degrees again. We’ll play in the water later.

So working on getting the books ready to ship. I need a hunky, wolfish personal assistant. I think I will have to make do with a toddler’s help. But I can fantasize.

Have a super lovely day!!!
