Between a Wolf and A Hard Place–$1.99!!!

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…


So I was trying to figure out how big a stack of $1,000,000 would be in $100 bills. Hey, it’s doable. You can put it in a briefcase, no problem! You can stick $10,000 worth of $100 bills in your pocket, easy. That bundle is 1/2″ thick if it’s all new dollars. If it’s old bills, it can be up to 1″ thick. You can do it!

 

Research is fun, but time-consuming. I end up reading all kinds of things that I don’t need for the story. Sometimes, I discover something else that might really add to the story. Sometimes, I learn I can’t do what I envisioned because it wouldn’t be feasibly possible. Now, if I wrote strictly fantasy, then I could stretch the bounds of reality, yet I still would need some constraints to make the fantasy world seem real. Even though my world isn’t exactly straight up real, I mean, if werewolves didn’t really exist, I need to keep the world as real as possible.

I learn all kinds of amazing things when I do research for a book. Who would have ever thought you could keep $10,000 in your pocket without any problem???

Have a super fun day!!

Review ed by Xeranthemum

Never be so foolish as to fall for the enemy…

Special wolf agent Jillian Matthews has joined the jaguar-run United Shifter Force to track down a deadly criminal. She’s even willing to work with PI Vaughn Greystroke―until the hot, growly SEAL wolf makes the mistake of getting in her way. Naturally, she shoots him. Who could blame her?

Vaughn Greystroke has always worked alone. But when a string of attempted murders puts him in the crosshairs, teaming up with the Shifter Force begins to sound like a good idea. Even if he has to work with alluring―and potentially treacherous―Jillian Matthews. Vaughn is a trained SEAL, after all. He can surely keep his distance from Jillian…no matter how much she’s getting under his skin.

Unraveling a mystery always makes for a great plot. It’s how an author weaves the story that creates an experience to remember and Ms. Spear found a unique hook that I totally could get into.

When Jillian shot the hero, Vaughn, not only was it totally unexpected but once he figures out just who shot him, the sparks start to fly. What I found fascinating is there were so many people shooting at one time or another, I could never figure out who was the criminal. Who really was against whom and just who were the bad guys and where’d they come from and why in the world were they in this little town anyway? Then to find out not only who they were but WHAT they were just sucked me into the adventure. There was so much to find out in this novel that it was easy to keep flipping the pages into the wee hours of the morning.

And limited time! 99 cent deal!!!

Brett Silver, model wolf citizen, donates a grand piano to the newly remodeled Silver Town Hotel. What most people don’t know is that he has ulterior motives; he’s actually interested in getting closer to the owner, the beautiful she-wolf Ellie MacTire. As they wrangle over the piano, and deal with mysterious guests who are causing trouble throughout the town, Brett questions how one gift could turn into something so complicated—especially when he thought it would win Ellie over for good.

So our neighborhoods have a neat social network and sometimes you can find things you’d like or can give away or sell. I bought a lovely bookshelf that way. But last night, late, someone posted about irises they were giving away that they had thinned. So I looked it up, and she was in my neighborhood, but it was late last night, and so this morning early, I walked to the mailbox near her, but didn’t see them.

She posted that they still hadn’t been picked up. She is a plant lover, and like me, the idea they would just be thrown out is awful, so I said I was headed that way again, and I set my GPS. It was dark this morning so I hadn’t seen them. But I found them, and now, I have to plant them!!!

I had so many in Crawford, I just loved them. But when I moved, I only had one that I took with me, and loved it.  I tried to grow some this spring, but only one made it, and it hasn’t bloomed yet. So maybe, these will and I can show them off later.

This was the one that I had back in Crawford.

Okay, off to work on fae some more! 🙂 <3

Have a super, duper day!!

Loving the White Bear–Print Version Approved!

Finished proofing Loving the White Bear! I approved the final version. The print version should be available soon! https://www.createspace.com/6918350

loving-the-white-bear-generic

Rob MacMathan and his brother and a friend run the White Bear Wilderness Adventures Tour, White Bear, where polar bear shifters have staked a claim. This is their last tour group of the season, but when photojournalist, Alicia Raycroft, touches Rob and envisions what he sees, though her paranormal abilities deal with psychometry, whereas he’s clairvoyant, they’re both stunned. He witnesses a fight with an enraged grizzly; she sees a polar trying to eat her, which he interprets to mean he’s wearing his polar bear coat and trying to save her. In no way can he reveal the truth to her. Yet, just that connection between them pushes them to go beyond his self-imposed boundaries with both a client and a human.
Alicia is fascinated with Rob, not only because he’s rugged and handsome and just as interested in her, he intrigues her like no other man has ever done when her touching him reveals he has abilities like she has. She envisions a white bear coming for her as snow swirls about her in the Alaskan wilderness, yet she’s determined to take this trek even if it’s her last. She believes fate is predetermined and nothing she will do can change the outcome anyway. Alicia and Rob are already headed down one dangerous path, so why not risk a chance at love too? Only he has more dark secrets he’s unwilling to share

I also discovered the links are now available to preorder the next 3 books coming out this year! 🙂 <3

So I was cutting back the esperanza after the freeze killed it back. I wasn’t sure if the leaves would come back on the branches, but they weren’t. They’re coming from the ground. But then I saw a wondrous site. 🙂 <3 It pays to pay attention to detail.

So I left the lizard’s hiding place alone.

Back to all the deadlines! 🙂 <3

Have a wonderful weekend!

Just did an interview on my books, 2 blogs for Casablanca, need to do one for Fierce Romance, and have to: Keep up with my writing on Flight of the White Wolf (5,000 words ahead on it from my new word count goal when I missed my other self-made deadline!); need to finish proofing print for Loving the White Bear and Galaxy Warrior; and the narrator for Taming the Wild Cougar is finally submitting chapters to review. I really like his voice, so if this works out, I could be seeing if he’ll do Covert Cougar Christmas and Double Cougar Trouble. He’s 2 months late on working on the project, so we’ll see.
And I still need to do taxes. Yet, I have to have me time too.

It takes a second, and really has some beautiful results. Imagine my surprise to see the “heart” shape reveal itself so well in the photo of the rose. It’s there in the original picture, but it is much more noticeable in this one. Snoopy the cat was at our Writer’s Retreat, such a sweet, poseable model, and the male red cardinal, also at the retreat, and the garlic chives flower blooming in the pot on my back porch. I’ve eaten the chives all year since last spring. They never died back, not even with the hard freeze we had.
And I’ve been gardening. I put out zinnia and salvia seeds, so we shall see if anything comes of them. While I was planting them, I found tons of fire ants too. Ugh. ‘Tis the season.
Okay, I’m off to get to work. I really, really need to whittle down these projects. I feel overwhelmed when I have this many. I need to make another cover, this one for an audiobook for Taming the Wild Cougar. So many things to do, need, want, so little time!
Have a smooth, oil painting kind of day. 🙂 <3
