Bird Watching & Human Watching & More Giveaways!

sparrows 2 (640x427)

Baby sparrows have been sitting on my windowsill and they peer in the kitchen window at me when I grab some more green tea. Normally, the sparrows take flight if they see me.  But I had just put out seed, and a bunch of birds were feeding. The cardinal always captures my interest.

But then all of a sudden, the birds all flew off. I thought I had spooked them, as often I do. But it wasn’t me this time, because the birds all landed on the shrubs, or at least the younger sparrows, and I took pictures.

This was what spooked them.

And so I was able to take a lot of pictures of the sparrows sitting atop the hedge right outside my window. Even the cardinal drew closer and was sitting atop a chair. But unfortunately, my focus ended up being on something else, and he’s all blurred. Which was a disappointment because he was so close, and watching me.

And so that’s my moment of getting a cup of green tea while the world around me is alive and well.

And a lovely review for Her Highland Hero!

Description:

Lady Isobel is a Norman laird’s daughter, living near the Scots border where her father, Lord Pembroke, is trying to keep the peace. But her mother was a Highlander and the man Isobel loves most of all is Laird Marcus McEwan, who has been bringing news of her mother’s people for years. But now Isobel’s father wishes her wed to an English nobleman, who will carry on his title. Isobel will wed no other man but her heart’s desire—and that is one braw Highlander from her mother’s homeland.
Laird Marcus McEwan has loved the feisty lass forever. For years, Marcus has tried to convince Lord Pembroke to allow him to wed his daughter. But the Norman lord will not allow it. Then ambushes and murders make it too dangerous for Marcus to reach a peaceful resolution.
Nothing goes as planned and keeping the lass for his own is fraught with danger, as they try to determine who was behind the killings. Isobel and Marcus will do everything in their power to ensure they are together as they have always vowed they would be.

My Thoughts:
Marcus and Isobel want to be together, but there are many forces keeping them apart. Isobel’s father wants to marry someone else, Marcus is nearly murdered, and there are dangerous secrets. I enjoyed this story, especially the relationship between Marcus and Isobel. Marcus will do anything to keep his Isobel safe. I recommend this for anyone who likes their romance with a good dose of Highlander.

I absolutely can’t believe it’s already Friday! How in the world did that happen? Still working on 10 bears. It went up one. and Call of the Cougar. But today, I’m re-reading A Silver Wolf Christmas to see if it’s ready. 🙂

And errands. Hate errands. They take so much of the day. And we had RAIN! And lots of it. We really desperately needed it. More today and the next few days. Yes!

Happy TGIF!!!

Thoughts:

I loved this! I was enthralled, enchanted and enamored by this lively fae story that moved fast and kept me riveted from beginning to the end. There just weren’t any dull moments. The characters were fun and each was on a trip of self-discovery. This is a story that would be perfect for tweens and teens . But… it’s not just for the young. I really enjoyed it, too, and I’m in my 60s.
 
The characters shined! Alicia was raised as a human who could see the fae. All she knew about the fae royal kingdoms, she had learned from her father’s journal. As she and her friend, Cassie, were vacationing on South Padre Island, Deveron, a dark fae. made a move on Cassie. Alicia literally pours cold water on him to put a halt to his shenanigans. Deveron decides that he will enjoy paying her back. He might be surprised, though, to find the tables turned on him.
Bottom-line: If you like to escape to magical fantasy worlds with fun romances, captivating characters and non-stop. entertaining adventure, rush to whatever bookstore you use, and buy this book now!
And another review!!!
Loved this fun review of The Dark Fae also!
“What an amazing read. The Dark Fae is so dark and twisty, while at the same time amusing and flirty. This is the first Terry Spear book I’ve ever read and I have to say I’m astonished at the creativity that went into this first installment of the World of Fae series. I was riveted from the very first sentence. Alicia is a smart aleck who doesn’t quite know when to back off. She had me laughing more times than I can count. Even though she’s scared for her life, she’s tough and won’t back down. I respect that in a heroine. Deveron is delicious and dangerous. He’s the bad boy we all love and he will not let readers down. All of the drama with the dark fae vs. the human world really kept me enthralled. I couldn’t wait to find out whether Alicia would get caught and what would happen to her if she did. Oh and let’s not forget the romance. Wowzers! Alicia and Deveron are hot together…mostly due to the fact that she’s always sniping at him. Like I said, very amusing. This is a couple all readers will root for. They’re the couple who doesn’t belong together so of course, we all want them to make it. The Dark Fae is definitely a must read and I will be recommending it to everyone I know. I can’t wait to devour the rest of the series!”

******************************

The problem with working on books and then turning them in, is they come back for edits. Then second round of edits. Then final edits. Then proofing edits.

The good thing is that I’ve written 4 more books while that happens, so every time a book comes back for edits, I’m all right with it because it’s been a while since I read it last!

The bad thing is that I’m working on a current book and hate to leave that story behind because each story I’m working on, either new, or the edited finished book, I really get into. Then it’s hard for me to get back to the book I’m working on.

The good thing is that the edited book A Hero of a Highland Wolf, will be out in August, so that’s a time to celebrate. And the other good news is that while I’m working on the current book, I will be reminded that, hey, I finished a book before, I can do it again.

039bc-herohighlandwolf-30028487x80029

The bad news is that it makes me behind on my word count for the new book.

Soooo, I wrote 5,000 on Monday to make up for it, and have to write another 5,000 to make my word count for the week. And have 25,000 words left to go.  This is where I’m coming down to the wire. I’ve got to ensure I’ve wrapped up all the loose ends, I have to make sure that everything in the story is important to the story. I have to figure out who the bad guy is. 🙂

Sometimes, I know from the start. Sometimes, I like the bad guy too much and can’t make him the bad guy. LOL

So there you have it. Not even I know how this will end.

I’m off though, to get more of something done.

Have a delightful Tuesday!
