Purple and Red

Ranunculus flowers in bloom. First came the red, and they’re still blooming. And now the purple. But the weather has taken a dive. But it’s warming up again, then cold next week and warming up. I like the warming up because it makes it the perfect weather before the heat settles in.

I only got 1,000 on the word count yesterday instead of at least 2,000, but I was working on taxes, and that takes days. I always tell myself I’ll get better organized in the new year and it won’t be such a mess by the beginning of the next year when I have to start this all over again. Ha!

I was reading an article on not beating yourself up about stuff. I agree! When you feel down about something you’re doing, your work, your appearance, your life, think of two things positive about yourself.

I find that doing something nice for someone else can make me feel better. Say something nice.

When I was at the grocery store with my granddaughter the other day, a man offered to take my basket and return it to the store for me when I’d unloaded everything but her from the basket. It’s the kind for kids, so he wouldn’t have used it. It was a nice gesture. I was so surprised and really appreciated it.

I had my hands full of books to ship and a man hurried to open the post office door yesterday. I do that when I see someone who needs help, moms with little kids, older people, both with baskets or kids. It makes me feel better because they appreciate it so much. Just doing something so simple as that can make someone else’s life less complicated for just a few seconds and yet can brighten their whole outlook for a bit.

I was feeling on cloud nine yesterday, maybe in part due to having a peppermint mocha, did you know that peppermint can make you feel better? It does me! Anyway, they said not to get the safety inspection done on my car until April, so I will wait on that. But after I shipped my books, I ran into a different grocery store for a couple of things I forgot to get and this store had 90% off on their Valentine’s stuff. Wow, a big ostrich and monkey and assorted soft pillows to play with for my granddaughter’s birthday , and two little items I can use for my bears for $3.50? Perfect! Yep, I was on cloud nine.

I’m off to write or work on taxes, it all has to be done! Probably both. Hope you have something fun to do today! TGIF!

Romance Paranormal

He is only supposed to watch her back … not fall hard for her.

They’re not the only ones on the prowl…but they’re the most dangerous…

The United Shifter Force gives jaguar agent Howard Armstrong an impossible task—to protect fierce she-jaguar Valerie Chambers, when the last thing she wants is protecting. They’re going international to take down a killer and he can guard Valerie all day long. But guard his heart? He doesn’t stand a chance.

I’d rather write, but I need to ship some books and get my car safety inspected so I can get my new car registration. Don’t you hate it when other stuff gets in the way of stuff you have to and want to do?

Just get it done and get back to what you have to/need to do! Otherwise? It is hanging over your head like a big, dark cloud. And the worst of it is? Stuff like that starts to stack up. I also need to start gathering all my stuff for taxes. ugh. I want to finish this book, but I’ll probably start gathering stuff soon. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. And then? You’ll feel better. Hopefully. lol

Have a great day!!

The Routine

Goes out the window when baby is here. But if it was a regular day, I’d be writing! She’s eating breakfast, watching Vikings riding dragons. It’s important to see good dragons and not always growly ones to have some perspective!

Have a great day. We’re headed for the weekend and that means??? More writing for me!

You Had Me at Jaguar Released!!!!!

I was so busy with taking care of baby yesterday and having her dad for dinner and working on Wolff brother’s story, that I totally forgot that You Had Me at Jaguar was out today!!!!!

“[T]hrilling from start to finish.”—RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars for Jaguar Pride

You Had me at Jaguar

They’re not the only ones on the prowl…but they’re the most dangerous…

The United Shifter Force gives jaguar agent Howard Armstrong an impossible task—to protect fierce she-jaguar Valerie Chambers, when the last thing she wants is protecting. They’re going international to take down a killer and he can guard Valerie all day long. But guard his heart? He doesn’t stand a chance.

Well, it’s not a shifter Halloween, but You Had Me at Jaguar has both wolves and jaguars in it.

I’m off to do some more promo-ing on the book. Can’t believe I didn’t already do this, but I’ve been trying to get lots more done on Wolff brother–so that has been my focus for the last 4 no-baby days!

Have a beautiful day!!! And remember, not all jaguars are shifters, so be careful which one you hug.

Colder Inside than Outside

That means your house has good insulation, right? I was shocked to go outside and find it was 71 degrees out first thing. It is winter! Strong wind blowing, felt great, walked back inside and it feels like I have the air conditioner on. I don’t, but it felt like it. The temperature will drop again, but it’s just such a shock to be this warm, this early in the morning! In winter! My flowers think spring has sprung. I’m afraid we’re going to get a shock and end up in the Ice Age one of these mornings. Flagstaff, Arizona had the first major snowstorm, 36 inches of snow, they’ve had in 104 years, so, no telling!

I’m 2,000 words ahead on Wolff Brother and I hope to keep up the pace if I can. The more ahead I get, the less behind I get when I have to do more edits on other books that need final proofing and whatnot. And then I can start on the next deadline book.

African daisy and coreopsis in bloom!

So my friend tells me that her weather app shows it’s going to rain. Mine shows fog. I took the dogs out and got drenched. Her app was right.

Have a super lovely day. I’m writing while I’m drying out. So much for weather reports!

Freebies and new releases! Okay, I’m off to continue trying to keep up and get ahead on my deadline goals. I caught up yesterday with 5,000 words and did lots of weeding the garden in the cold misty rain. Much better than doing it in the hot mosquitoy sun in the summer where the soil is baked and pulling up weeds is so much harder. And much better than singing in the rain. You would really not want to hear me singing in the rain or otherwise.

Highland Wolves series by Terry Spear

Done! And Getting There!

Something is chasing her! Daddy. Wait, I found a leaf. Playing chase was halted for a moment. Such is the life of a toddler.

I could say that somehow through a miracle I managed to not only take care of my granddaughter, AND finish up the SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue novella and turned it in last night to beat the March 1st deadline, DONE!!! AND whittled down being 14,000 words behind on Wolff Brother (working title), to being 3,000 words behind to a miracle, but really, it was work, and Keira’s 3 hour-long naps, and giving her little candy boxes from a gift basket I received at Christmas (empty candy boxes) that she played with for hours, opening and closing the little flaps, sticking a rubber star into the one, pulling it out, sticking it in–all engineering feats, I’m sure, and having some ideas that came to me that allowed me to go forward!

Fun work and I’m feeling great about the progress! Okay, so I’ve had requests for writing sequel books for: The Magic of Inherian–the third book in the trilogy, Emerald Isle of Mists, and the second book in Ghostly Liaisons. Both were started and I looked and I still have them. Sometimes I’ve had major computer crashes and I have lost a couple of stories. I also have the 2 sequels to Kiss of the Vampire (YA) started. And I was asked where Bound for Trouble, the sequel to Bound by Danger, was??? It”s also written, but needs major revisions. I work on it periodically when I’m not in a deadline panic. And usually when I’m trying to come up with an idea on a new deadline book. It helps me to be doing SOMETHING writing-wise, makes me feel like I’m accomplishing something.

My daughter asked me the other day how many books I have published. Around 70. How many books have I written that I haven’t published yet? Needing major revisions, around 20. How many started books? Around 15. So what am I doing about it???

Laughing. It took me a year to finally finish writing Claiming the White Bear and it took me 8 years to write the sequel to Shadow Elf, Darkland Elf. I think it was 3 years to write Demon Hunter, which is the third demon YA story. It’s not that I don’t want to write the other books, but I have a ton of HAVE TO books to write each year. And it seems the number keeps going up. The others WILL get done. Eventually.

Speaking of which, I’m off to write! Have a fun-filled, productively fun day!

Heart of the Highland Wolf eBook FREE!

Baby is here again and then I have 4 days of writing. I’m hoping to get caught up. Most of the Highland Wolf books are still on sale!

I am trying to write 3,000 words a day so I can be less behind, but I need to finish edits on the novella for SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue and turn it in too.

It turned rainy and cold so I’ve been doing a lot of weeding. The weeds outnumber the population of all the people of the earth though. I’m certain of it! And I’m pretty sure that every time I pull up five weeds, ten more are taking their place, as if I just made room for them.

Okay, I’m off to take care of baby and hope I can get some writing done on my off writing day to make up some more on my word count. I’m 10,000 behind. But that’s down from 14,000, so that’s good!

Have a great day! I was enjoying the overcast one, but I missed seeing the super moon. I hope you got a glimpse of it!

Who Let the Dogs Out?

Ride ’em wolfie! She’s back! Usually I have a four day-break to write. lol

Okay, I’m determined to get something done today. Hopefully. Fingers uncrossed because I have to type. I did manage to get 1500 words written yesterday and today is a non-writing day, so hope to get maybe a 1,000. It just depends if I can get an idea or not!

Have a great day! I’m off to have fun with mine!
