Altering Life

Playing around with the picture I took of an Asiatic lily–using Topaz Studio (free). I see that wasn’t the original picture I used–this one has water drops on it.  🙂 <3

I ended up writing over 4,000 words yesterday, catching up on the other day and making word count for yesterday and a start on today. 🙂 17,000+ done, and 63,000 to go. It’s amazing how just writing and writing and writing really works. I have to admit when I was really sick, I could only edit what I’d written. I just hadn’t slept enough to come up with new scenes.

 

Lola shared a picture of her beautiful Tuxedo cat, Ms. Cassie, cuddling with a hot cougar. Thanks, Lola, she is adorable! And my picture of Trixie, my black and white rescue cat when she was just a kitten, and my son. She is definitely watching what he is up to. She was so good-natured with both the kids.

The writing isn’t going to get done without me, and I had an idea last night before I dropped off to sleep, and I remembered it this morning without writing it down! So off to add it to the scene. Which means making some earlier changes.

Have a super, wonderful Monday!

BETWEEN A WOLF AND A HARD PLACE by Terry Spear (4 stars) RT Reviews! Yay!!

The newest addition to the Silver Town Wolf series is dark, sexy and replete with a haunting spin. Readers will get a kick out of the author’s vivid imagination. This steamy tale of love intermingles perfectly with the more thrilling moments, and can easily be read as a stand-alone.

Ellie MacTire and her sisters own the Silver Town hotel. In addition to being a wolf-shifter, Ellie also has the ability to communicate with the dead. She has an inkling that Alpha werewolf Brett Silver has something up his sleeve when he donates a family heirloom to the hotel. He’s had his eyes and heart set on Ellie, and nothing will stand in his way until she’s his. Unfortunately, there are some creepy things occurring around town. Can Ellie keep her family and the town safe? And will she be able to keep her composure around Brett in order to find out who’s behind the mysterious happenings? (SOURCEBOOKS, Apr., 352 pp., $7.99)

Wooing a she-wolf isn’t as easy as it looks in this bold paranormal romance from USA Today bestseller Terry Spear

In Silver Town, the secrets run deep…

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…

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

Mixing and Matching Halloween with Non-Halloween Decorations

Halloween figures and red sky1 copy (800x631)

I had a black and white cat for nearly 17 years and so my mother gave me lots of adorable miniature artist designed black and white cats and pandas. The one kitty cat was so upset when the ghost said, “Boo!” that she fainted dead away.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. But with their jack-o-lanterns and the witch’s lantern (which happens to be a lantern that goes to a Christmas light string), lol, so see? …it’s perfect to mix and match with decorations and still give them that Halloween feel.  I’m all set!

Do you decorate for Halloween?
