Sleepy Puppies

Until they see the cat.

A story can be that way, just sleepy, until something draws everyone together for a common goal. Prey.

Oh, and Tanner is always up for a mug shot. He needs a face trim, but he doesn’t care. If I’m trying to take a picture of the other dogs, he wants in on the action. To my surprise, so did Max. He usually doesn’t like having his picture taken. It’s just something he has to put up with. But if I’m taking pictures of his cousins? He wants to be included.

As you can see, I was really writing. Really.

Off to get started on it…well, after everyone has another potty break. I love taking pictures of the cat, but I’m hoping he doesn’t come around because of the dogs. My earlier dogs were raised with cats, so no problem. But these haven’t been.

Have a wonderfully, exciting day! 🙂 I made it to 50K! Woohoo! 30K to go.

Baby and the Beanstalk

 

And a male cardinal with a peanut in the pouring rain. Having issues with my internet in the morning. I need to post my blog the night before because it really works! But I was trying to get my word count and a little more last night. Which I did!

So this is Baby and the Beanstalk. My daughter doesn’t like composites, even if they’re by her favorite artist. That’s not me. I don’t care. I do them for me. And someday, I might put them in a book for baby. I’m sure SHE will love them.

I’m off to write more. Hope to reach 50,000 today! But I will only make that if I work on the story!

The dogs and I are managing great, and today I would normally have baby here, so no writing. This time I get to write! 🙂

Have a great one!!

Halloween Bears and a Christmas Wolf

My life is a mixed-up season.

I have resorted to listening to Carol of the Bells, God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman and other instrumental music to get into the Christmas spirit for writing Billionaire Wolf Christmas. When I showed this off yesterday on FB, I realized how much I needed to listen to Christmas music to feel the mood. It doesn’t help when it’s 90+ degrees out. 🙂

Have a super fall day!

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!!!

Only the Shadow Knows

volunteer snapdragon and its shadow 900 016

Volunteer Snapdragon and its shadow, getting ready to bloom. I had tons of them in the flowerbed when I moved in, and a few have sprouted from seeds so it’s always fun having annual flowers that don’t come back, reseed themselves and come back.

I loved its shadow too.

Yesterday, I accomplished a ton of stuff–planted all the flowers I needed to, watered, fed the birds, wrote 5,000 words on Bounty, so not only for the last two days, but also for half of today’s word count. Proofed the last chapter of the narration of Taming the Wild Cougar. Now he has to make the changes and I need to proof them all again, but just for the places where they were changed. And I made the changes to the novella that will be in the re-release in January of Heart of the Wolf. I wrote it 10 years ago, but it came out 10 years ago in 2018. Can you believe it????

I can’t ! They have a new cover for it and I’ll share that when I have permission to.

Orange Leaf in Shadow and Sun

Flamingo shadows, blinds making interesting shadows, and the clouds on the hills in Scotland.

If you’re compositing pictures, shadows make the objects seem like they are truly in the original picture. They give depth.

The shadows of our lives give characters depth too.

So embrace the light and the shadows–they are all part of us. They are what make the picture, the story, life more interesting.

Have a lovely day! I’m caught up! Woohoo!!!

Between a Wolf and a Hard Place is OUT!

BETWEEN A WOLF AND A HARD PLACE by Terry Spear (4 stars) RT Reviews! Yay!!

The newest addition to the Silver Town Wolf series is dark, sexy and replete with a haunting spin. Readers will get a kick out of the author’s vivid imagination. This steamy tale of love intermingles perfectly with the more thrilling moments, and can easily be read as a stand-alone.

Ellie MacTire and her sisters own the Silver Town hotel. In addition to being a wolf-shifter, Ellie also has the ability to communicate with the dead. She has an inkling that Alpha werewolf Brett Silver has something up his sleeve when he donates a family heirloom to the hotel. He’s had his eyes and heart set on Ellie, and nothing will stand in his way until she’s his. Unfortunately, there are some creepy things occurring around town. Can Ellie keep her family and the town safe? And will she be able to keep her composure around Brett in order to find out who’s behind the mysterious happenings? (SOURCEBOOKS, Apr., 352 pp., $7.99)

Wooing a she-wolf isn’t as easy as it looks in this bold paranormal romance from USA Today bestseller Terry Spear

In Silver Town, the secrets run deep…

Alpha werewolf Brett Silver has an ulterior motive when he donates a prized family heirloom to the Silver Town hotel. Ellie MacTire owns the place with her sisters, and he’s out to get her attention.

Ellie is even more special than Brett knows. She’s a wolf-shifter with a unique ability to commune with the dead. Ellie has been ostracized, so she protects herself and those she loves by revealing nothing—not even when strange and dangerous things begin to happen in Silver Town. And especially not to the devastatingly handsome and generous wolf who’s determined to win her over…

Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Another Silver Wolf Novel!
April 4, 2017

 

With more deadlines, and such, I forgot about the release this morning. Helping out with the grand-baby, and keeping up on word count, but ended up with narrated chapters for Taming last night, edits on the novella to be included i n the re-release of Heart of the Wolf, and so, I missed my own book baby delivery! 🙂 Almost!

And believe me when I say it takes months of work, writing, edits, and finally the delivery, some of which can cause a lot of gnashing of teeth, but in the end, totally worth it!

Have a great day and if you love the book, please leave a fantastic review. Just saying.

Okay, off to see the tax lady. Perfect way to ruin a wonderful day–but that won’t stop me from having a great one!

Raindrops are Falling on My Head

Poor doves and female cardinal. She kept shaking the water off as she ate. But when you’re hungry, you’re hungry.

And the Spanish lavender started to bloom.

Sent off SEAL Wolf Undercover proofed book! So now I’m off to play catch up on Bounty Hunter. 5,200 words to write to catch up. Don’t think that’s going to happen today, but I’m going to make a concerted effor!

Pouring rain!

Hope you have a lovely day!

Rescued Flowers

Sometimes rescuing flowers from garden centers works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Even though these gerbera daisies are beautiful, most of them were looking really bad. They’re the prettiest big flowers, and the other that I had gotten last year (much bigger size in red) never died back, and flowered from late winter to late fall. It’s flowering happily now.

The lavender azaleas’ flowers won’t last much longer and I love purple flowers, so I picked two of them up at half price, though I’d like to get some that are thrice blooming. Those are nearly 10 times the price of these. So maybe next year.

I’m working on The Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf now, this is Sarandon Silver’s story. I’ll have to turn in the synopsis soon, so hoping to get a head start on it so that when I write the synopsis, it will work for this book. 74,000 words to go!

My one neighbor works on his garden all the time, so I have to keep up with the Jones’s. My neighbor across the street makes a concerted effort too. I keep adding perennial flowers, hoping they’ll expand and take over, but last year I had just moved in, so it’s a work in progress.

Then yesterday, my other next-door neighbor was planting flowers (they’re new, and the other before them didn’t plant flowers). Oh no! Now I have to redouble my efforts. lol I have two Jones’s to keep up with. And you know what? That’s nice. Pretty landscapes.

sky pencil holly tanner checking out manure 900 005

I planted more of the sky pencil holly yesterday when it was cooler in the morning. It’s getting so hot and muggy in the afternoons already. Here, Tanner is checking out the manure compost soil, wondering who was scent-marking his yard! I still have to plant 9 more holly to reach the end of the fence.

Off to work. Another beautifully foggy morning.

Practice Makes Perfect…or…

At least better!

My first portrait pictures were blurry and awful. So I’m getting better at this. We wanted to take the photos with a pretty backdrop. My daughter is due any day now. So this was a last chance to take pictures with Mommy and Daddy before baby is born.

We walked around the Otter Pound, the name I’ve given it since that’s where I captured pictures of the 3 otters before. I’ve seen pictures of couples in the woods, so there are some woods near this, which I hope they leave like it is! It was perfect for pictures. The sun was setting, and my son-in-law had just gotten off from work. It was hot and muggy, but perfect as far as not being cold, rainy, and the bugs weren’t bad. They will be.

Every spam call I get, I think this is it! Well, it will be soon!

And remember that with anything, practice makes perfect. Or…better.

Have a perfect day!
