Hawk on My Fence–Guess Who’s Come to Dinner


Waiting for his next meal. You know, they can have all the rats they want, but they’re never around when the rats are!

Well, we had a great day going to ballet class, having lunch, and then going to see the Nutcracker. My granddaughter was tired before we even made it to her ballet class and fell asleep on the way home from the Nutcracker. lol

Today I need to really work on those bears. On the Highland book I’m reworking, and removed 54,000 words. It’s fine. I kept them if I wanted to use them for a different story, but I’m going in a much different direction with it and so it’s just easier to dump the rest and keep the first 27K and finish it up. So I have 43K or so words to go.

I reached 43K on Bear in Mind and need 27K on it.

Also, I changed my newsletter provider so if you want to learn about my new releases, sign up here: https://terrys-newsletter-5abbec.beehiiv.com/subscribe

I’m off to work on the bears. Hope you all have a great day!

Today is a Wild Fun Day

It’s an all girl’s day! First ballet, then lunch, then the Nutcracker Ballet! Woohoo!

So I couldn’t quit thinking about the Highland romance last night and wrote a 1,000 words. I was working on large bears for a bear order before I picked up my granddaughter and need to work on those again tonight. I want to have them done by Wednesday so I can ship them off then.

Off to type up notes before I have to run.

Have a stupendous day!

Painless Dentistry???

That for me would mean being knocked out completely. lol

My trip to the dentist was NOT painless. But I hope never to have to wear dentures, so that means regular visits to the dentist, and the torture all over again.

It was a wild and hectic day yesterday, so hope today will be a little less wild!

Hope your day is fun!!

A Very Merry Fairy Christmas

Used Midjourney AI to create the fairy tree and then incorporated it in the first picture showing the fairies getting ready for Christmas! The fairies were created with Daz3D. 🙂

Great day with little one yesterday. Now it’s time for teeth cleaning and I’ll be glad to get that over with. lol

Have a beautiful, fairy-like day!

Dog Days of Christmas

It was a great day with my toddler grandson yesterday! We walked to the school to have lunch with his sister in kindergarten and then walked home and walked back to pick her up and back home again. So I got a lot of walking in!

He was so good. I gave him some milk when we got home after lunch, set out his mat and told him to lie down and go to sleep. I pulled off his shoes and put a blanket over him and he fell asleep!!! Woohoo! Then I worked on edits nearby and it was so nice. Max slept next to me. But before we knew it and before my grandson was awake, we had to leave again to pick up big sister.

It worked out really great. Now I’ve got him again this morning. He was so cute. Max will sleep on my lap. He wanted him to sleep on his lap. Max isn’t as big as his dogs (corgis), but he’s still way too big for a toddler’s lap. Of course, a lot of Max is fur!

Okay, I’m off to take care of little one. We’re supposed to have rain most of the day. So it looks like we will have to drive to pick up his sister after school. Boy, once he saw his stroller, he had a fit when I didn’t put him in it right away. lol

Have a lovely day!!

A New Chapter

I was so busy working on the Highland story yesterday, that I didn’t get my blog written! I’ve been working on this book for probably 15 years. Not all the time, of course. Some years, I probably haven’t even opened it up. And when I have, it’s to make a few changes and then I’m back to working on a newer book. I’m changing it extensively, so throwing out scenes, adding new ones, breaking up chapters, changing names. I’ve been doing a lot of MAJOR revisions. I finally figured out why it isn’t working and how to make it work.

It’s making it a much better story. But I’ll probably set it aside at some point to work on Bear in Mind again. Sometimes it’s easier just to write a new book! On the other hand, I still love this story, so it will be finished at some point! At least I feel I’m making some progress, more than I have in years.

My grandson will be staying with me on Mondays and Tuesdays now and I’m taking him to have lunch with his kindergartner sister today. If this goes well, we’ll do it on a weekly basis. If it doesn’t, I’ll have lunch with her on a day that I don’t have my grandson. He’s about 18 mos old now and I just don’t know how he’ll do in the lunch cafeteria.

I wonder if I can get my granddaughter’s scooter on the stroller so I can walk with him to get her afternoons! Lots to figure out with the new schedule.

Have a super delightful day!

Today is Our Turkey Day!

Kids and grandkids were sick all week, so today we’re having our turkey and all the goodies. 🙂 I need to start it at 9. It is pouring rain out, so the dogs won’t go out. I’ll probably have to make them go out on leashes.

They snuck out when I was working on the Christmas lights out front yesterday though. Naughty dogs.

It always amazes me that the beta, Max, will take off, and the alpha, Tanner, stays near me. So when I called to Max, he was not going to return. I said, “Do you want a treat?” Tanner will always take the bait, but he wasn’t the problem. Max wanted his freedom. So I tried another tactic. “Bad dog, Max.” And that did it. He’s more sensitive. Tanner, if I’m scolding him, will wag his tail off. Max feels bad if I scold him. He turned around and looked at me.

“Come here, Max.” And he came. Finally. I carried him in the house because I didn’t trust him to follow me inside. Tanner happily ran beside me, just eager to be with me. Yet, when we’re inside, Max always wants to be in my lap. Tanner gets too hot. Though he tries to sneak off to his crate so I don’t groom him, lately, after I’ve been combing Max out, Tanner wants his turn. Go figure.

Anyway, crisis averted.

I was supposed to get the dogs groomed yesterday, but the groomer ended up getting sick. This upper respiratory illness accompanied by fevers has really hit our area hard.

Okay, I’m off to work on a story. Have a great day! We’re having our turkey finally! Family and turkey? What could be better? Yay!

Warrior Elf, Book 3, Out Now!

Rina is a warrior elf from a long class of shadow warrior elves on the planet Xibos, a world populated by elves, griffons, dragons, giants, pixies, fairies, trolls, merfolk, centaurs, and other fantastical creatures. They’ve recently had visitors from a whole other planetary system who call Xibos a primitive elf world. But Rina doesn’t believe they are a primitive people in the least as she fights for right and though she earns much gold from her work, she also takes on cases where there is no hope of reward—just because it’s something she must do. Fighting is in her blood. And she has a magic trick up her leather sleeve. She is all about work and no play, so when she takes on the mission of rescuing a princess from a tower—if she even really needs rescuing—Rina ends up meeting a champion elf knight—who also rights wrongs. But he works for the king of Castle Grande of the Wild Meadowlands elves and she’s not sure they have the princess’s best interests at heart.

Artur serves as the king’s champion from a long class of champions of the Wild Meadowlands elves when he encounters a warrior elf fighting dark arts knights all on her own. He watches in fascination, until he eliminates the last one, and he’s not sure what to think of her. Does she have the princess’s welfare in mind? Or some darker purpose? He admires Rina, but he doesn’t trust her. Yet it appears they have a common enemy and until that’s resolved, he’ll watch her back and hope she watches his!

The World of Elves Continue!

Now that you’re all set with a new elf book, I’m back to work on Bear in Mind and …another two books. I’ve been flip-flopping between a couple of other books that are started. One is at 82K already, but I’m heavily revising it. The other is at 19K and will be a 50K book. So essentially they are both as far along as Bear in Mind. The long one is a Medieval Highland romance. The other is a vampire teen story sequel to Kiss of the Vampire.

I’ve been a little stumped on Bear in Mind… So, rather than waste the time trying to sort it out, I was playing around with the other 2 books also.!

Okay, enough chitchat. I need to get busy. I put out my candy cane lights and some other ground lights, then it poured and tripped the circuit breaker. So need to cover them with cord covers that I’m sure I have and I sure can’t find. Of course.

Today, I’m taking the dogs in for grooming. I normally don’t go anywhere over Black Friday–at least not to shop. But with getting baby on Mondays and Tuesdays starting next week, it will limit my writing time and getting other things done that I can’t do with him. Sooooo, the dogs are going to the groomers today.

Have a super fun Black Friday. I’m off to write….on something. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!! & Warrior Elf Out Now!

Also Warrior Elf is available and I turned in Roxie’s story!

Rina is a warrior elf from a long class of shadow warrior elves on the planet Xibos, a world populated by elves, griffons, dragons, giants, pixies, fairies, trolls, merfolk, centaurs, and other fantastical creatures. They’ve recently had visitors from a whole other planetary system who call Xibos a primitive elf world.

There’s an issue with Barnes and Noble’s website for the book, so I figure it won’t be resolved until after the holidays. It’s available everywhere else now though!

This looks like a delightful place to be today! I’m going to try and put out my Christmas lights if it’s not storming. We have fog and storms scheduled for a little later. I might just work on Bear in Mind.

Hope you all are having a great day wherever in the world you are!
