Picture Display Trouble!

This is a picture shot of my son and a turtle in Hawaii.

So, my pictures show up fine here, but when they are shared on Gooodreads and FB, they don’t show up. It used to be (before the new WordPress upgrade), that at least a link would be given at Goodreads, if the photos didn’t show up, so that readers could click on it to see the picture.

Not sure what the problem is! I’m trying a 72 dpi picture today to see if it works.

Anyone have any good recommendations for a waterproof camera? This was shot with a Go Pro, my son said. I used Topaz Studio AI to improve the details on the turtle and remove some of the noise in the picture.

I’m off to write. I wrote 2,000 words yesterday, filling in scenes and making changes, but now I still need to write the last scene that will finish the book. Yay!

Have a grand one. Hope the picture issue gets resolved!!!

A Weed or a Fern?

Do you have plants you can’t identify? I have this happen all the time. The whole area was forest at one time, so a lot of the plants that are popping up were native–like youpon holly (not shown, but I have several of them that volunteered to grow in the yard), the fern, and whatever the other plant is. I think it might be a fern of some kind. The silk and seeds are from a yellow flowering milkweed. You can see the yellow flowers behind it. I keep finding more crape myrtles in the flowerbeds. They are beautiful, but if I’m not careful, I will have a forest of them. lol

I’m also trying to propagate some of the sunny ligustrum to add to the yard. I don’t have a very big yard, so I have to be careful that I don’t lose my whole yard to plants!

I wrote several more scenes yesterday on Claiming, but need to write one more, I think. Hopefully, I can get it done today, but need to run an errand and the dogs aren’t leaving until later this afternoon. But I need to also start writing all the promo blogs for You Had Me at Jaguar.

So much to do. So little time!

Hope you have all kinds of time to do the fun things you enjoy doing!

A Beautiful Sunset

I saw the beginning of a sunset the other day and I realized I hadn’t taken a picture of one in a while. But it was too hard to see for the trees and houses, and so I didn’t think anything more of it. But then I saw this on New Year’s Eve when I was taking all the dogs out for another potty break. Now this was worth taking pictures of. A sunset in all its glory! We had storms all day yesterday and we’re supposed to have them all day today, so no beautiful sunsets probably.

I’m nearly done with Claiming the White Bear. It’s a year in the making, though I still need to write a couple of more scenes. I think that’s it, but I’ll have to make sure. The dogs are still here through tomorrow night. And I hope to have the book done by this weekend. And then? I’m off to work on the wolves in Silver Town!

Have a beautiful sunrise kind of day. I won’t be having that either as rainy as it’s been! But if I finish this book soon, it will be like a symphony of sunsets and sunrises all in one.

What to do in the New Year!

I am swamped with work, but there are some things I realize I’d neglected. My signature line! I just updated the book covers, though I need to update it again! But at least it’s not as outdated as it was. And I really need to update my website.

I was in a hot tub last night with a romantic polar bear shifter in Alaska. Okay, so not me, really. My heroine was. I was dog-sitting! All right? I’d rather have been in a hot tub with a sexy polar bear shifter.

Trying to get a shot of all four dogs looking at me and not blurring is a challenge with a phone.

I’ve got to start the process of taking them out again in shifts, feeding them, and taking them out in shifts. I’ve been putting off the inevitable while I get my blog written. We are going to have 100% rain today and tomorrow, which means lots of wet dog.

I’m off to get started on my day’s work, well, after I take care of the dogs. In the meantime, have a super, lovely day!!!

Happy New Year’s!

Image may contain: dog and indoor

I’m puppy sitting for New Year’s, which means constant potty breaks at different times. It’s a job, but somebody’s got to do it!

Kick up your heels, or hoofs, and have a great New Year’s! I’m back to the book.

What Do You Really See?

I took the fish picture at an aquarium in Omaha. It’s amazing what you can find in a fishy world when you’re really looking! I have mermaids and mermen in my World of Elves series and in my Magic of Inherian series.

I’ve been removing Christmas lights and putting away all the Christmas decorations, so running late on everything!

Hope your day is fantastically great! I’ve got to get back to the book! Oh, wait, tonight is New Year’s Eve. Are you having fun?

I’m writing and later, I’ll play some more of Hero U: Rogue to Redemption. I do much better as a paladin, a warrior, even a ranger. I’ve already stacked up 40 demerits. At 100, I get kicked out of school. Let me explain, though. You have to wear the school uniform, but I can’t afford the school uniform. Which means I have to sneak by the mean guy all the time, and sometimes I manage, and sometimes, I get caught. Besides the random: giving demerits for stuff I have no control over. Aww, come on. You’d think he hoped I flunked out. Well, he does. At least I passed my first two rogue tests. (I had to start over because I failed them both the first time around and I had 65 demerits. lol)

The game is like the old Hero’s Quest games, so it’s fun. But addictive. I’m only going to play for an hour. Only. An. Hour. I have a book to write.

Right. Then I’m back at it. Okay, have a great day!!! Before it’s all gone!! And Happy New Year!!!

Winter Flowers Blooming!

Okay, not really. These are summer flowers still blooming! Whoever heard of a sunflower coming out in winter? And the marigolds are just as vibrant. In fact, even the milkweed are regrowing their leaves. But they will get a rude shock soon. The temps are dropping to freezing, but then up again in the 60’s. Even the honeybees were back, all over the roses yesterday, and I’ve seen more monarch butterflies and one of the yellow ones!

I’m still working on edits on Claiming the White Bear before I finish writing scenes. Moving a couple situations earlier in the story really made a mess. But I think I’ve about got it all sorted out.

Off to write! Have a great day!

Trips in the Future?

One of my favorite Scottish castles.

I’m excited about the possibility of going to England. I’d LOVE to see the English castles and gardens and the countryside. I have a good friend whose husband may be working there for a couple of years, so I told her I’d love to visit if it works out! We were supposed to get together in NYC for a conference in July, but she was afraid she’d be in England. I’m not sure where they’ll be and they won’t even be going until spring, but she said that would be great!

I’ll be going to Hawaii this year for my son’s wedding…and I’m planning on signing books at the Barnes and Noble and visiting the zoo. I just can’t wait to write a few pages while listening to the waves and the wind blowing through the palm trees. If I could, I’d stay a month!

But coming back to earth, I’ve got deadlines to write for and pictures to send to my daughter of Christmas so that she can make her Christmas thank you cards, so I’m off and running.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Weird Weather!

We had storms all day yesterday and I stayed off the computer and edited pages I had printed out. Then at 4:30, I got a phone call and on my answering machine: Tornado warning!

So forget about sleeping. And the storms started up again.

That means, I’m really not raring to go like I usually am first thing in the morning. I’ll get there. Maybe. Later. Hopefully.

At least the tornado watch is no longer in effect, like they predicted through 11 am and it stopped raining and I rushed my garbage out!

Have a great day!!! I’m still trying to get mine started

Start the New Year’s Right!

Christmas is over and it’s time to begin thinking about the new year.

Drinking until late into the night? Forget that! Early to bed, early to rise…and welcome the new year in right! I’ll be puppy sitting, so there’s no sleeping all day anyway, even if I could!

So two of my cougar stories have New Year’s themes, one, at the beginning where she goes to an old ghost town looking for answers about criminal activities as she’s in law enforcement on New Year’s Eve, nothing better to do, and ends up in a gunfight and meets the cougar who will change her life forever. And the other ends with New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day, and the trouble they have to deal with before they can get on with their lives in the new year.

A new year promises so much, to undo all the bad habits (ha!), and to make new ones (uhm, good habits, not new bad habits), to make new memories, to accomplish goals that have been put off, to start all over and make this year the best, or just to plug along and do what you’ve been doing all along, only having more fun along the way.

The new year can be daunting. For me, it means the beginning of having to write more deadline books, what do I write about now that’s new and different???? More teddy bear orders. They’re stacking up. And I haven’t finished writing Claiming the White Bear. *sigh*

But it’s also a time to take a breather or two and have fun. Hopefully, no category 5 hurricanes this year. We had snow too. Really bizarre for the Houston area. But great for pictures!

So Christmas is over, we had a really lovely time, and I’m ready for spring! Have a lovely day!!! I have to write!
