Pretty in Purple–Fairy Art

Getting a slow start this morning. I was working on edits on Lachlan’s story until late. I’m up to chapter 9 on edits. The book is now at 89K.

We’re having a 4th of July dinner tonight and kids are off to a 4th of July party on Monday. I get to stay home and work on the story! So off to work I go for now!

Have a delightful day!!!

Relative Danger–Now in Print!

I loved Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes when I was growing up. But we had some family murder attempts for money also, greed, a shady lawyer who was a relative, just all kinds of cool things to think about while I was writing this story. Nope. You won’t see the real murder attempts in this story, but I have sprinkled them through others to protect the guilty. The shady lawyer? Yep!

Relative-Danger-Nook

CoverInked did the cover. Love it!

Murder, mayhem, and family secrets abound when some beneficiaries of an insurance magnate’s last will and testament plot to get their money early. During a week of togetherness orchestrated by her not-quite-departed uncle’s will, headstrong heiress McKenna Sutherland has to team up with resort manager Thomas Hampton, the man who stole her heart five years ago, or she’ll lose her inheritance—to him! McKenna and Thomas need to uncover the villain among a cast of colorful characters who have joined them for the week, each of whom has a stake in the ultimate outcome—Uncle Sheldon’s money, and loads of it. Thomas’s job is to keep Sheldon’s faked death a secret, while he makes sure McKenna isn’t next on the killer’s hit list. With everything around them a lie, can Thomas regain McKenna’s love and trust before it’s too late?

I already walked each dog this morning and it’s muggy! It was only 85 yesterday so I managed to get some more weeding done. After I cool down from the two walks, I’ll tackle some more weeding this morning. I’m sure it’s going to heat up again. We had a little rain, but not enough to register in my rain gauge I don’t think.

I’m up to chapter 15 on Deadly Fortunes, have 6 more chapters to proof. Then it’ll be ready, but I have to wait on the new cover and then I can republish it.

I started the second in the series, but when I couldn’t sell to anyone (you know, before indie was an option), I put it on hold and then never got back to it. One of these days, I will!

I bought four more covers. What was I thinking? They’re gorgeous though. I just need to write faster. lol

I need to finish editing Deadly Fortunes and then finish writing Lachlan’s story! They’ll be asking for the synopsis soon and I haven’t finished the story.

Have a super wonderful day!

Fairy of the Green Woods

When I create these, I used lots of layers and they just keep building one on top of another. The green flower is a photo of a zinnia I had taken. And the butterfly, adjusted colors to match the artwork, was also a photo I’d taken.

I finished proofing Relative Danger. I’m waiting on the cover artist’s print cover. Barb of CoverInked did a lovely job on the ebook cover. I’ve eyed it for a while now once I first saw it. It just embodies so much of the story. I realized I didn’t have it in print, so once she sends the cover to me, I’ll publish it.

We were supposed to have storms from 4 am to 4 pm and coastal flooding, but they’ve been wrong every day this week, so we shall see.

I’m back to working on Lachlan’s story.

Hope you all have a thoroughly lovely day!

Pretty in Pink Fairy Art

I was in a pink mood. Gold yesterday. Green tomorrow. White one day. Blue another. Colors can evoke emotions. I have to remember to include them in my writing.

I’m a little over halfway done on proofing Relative Danger. I’m hoping to get it done today. No grandchild care, so I’m free to just work on this. The dogs are bugging me to eat. I got up at 4:30, way too early to feed them, though I took them out in the dark this morning to potty. So that’s next on the agenda. And then back to proofing.

I have an infestation of moths. I must have let in a pregnant one and now I’m constantly killing moths. ugh.

I’m off to feed the ravenous dogs!! And walk them before it gets too hot. Oh, it’s cooler today. Yay! Just checked the weather forecast. Maybe storms around 11. Not holding my breath. They’ve been saying that for three days.

Have a super great day! Mine’s going to be great with the cool down and hopeful rain! And working on the green fairy art too. 🙂

Golden Age of Wolves and Fairies

The Fae and the Wolf

I love fairies and wolves. Well, and a lot of other things.

I just finished edits on Wolf Takes the Lead and turned it in. I started working on editing Relative Danger, previously released. I have a new cover for it, so I want to update it.

Still taking care of my granddaughter, so once she goes home, I can concentrate on it and maybe get it done by the weekend and then republish it with the new title. Then? It’s time to get back to Lachlan’s story. Sometimes it helps me to write on a current story after I’ve read a couple of others I had to work on. I’ll reread it from beginning to end and then hopefully be able to figure out how to finish it.

Another hot day. No rain. *sigh* Maybe Thursday we’ll get some, but I’m not holding my breath.

Have a super lovely day!!!

Polar Bear Art Fun to Cool Off

It was 106 heat index. I needed to play with something nice and cool 🙂

My daughter is at a conference, so I’m helping out with my granddaughter. My SIL called to say baby has a fever and bad congestion, so I told him I’d keep my granddaughter 2 more nights instead of 1 more night. We were playing chicken foot dominoes last night, then bath time and story time and bedtime.

We took both dogs for a walk in the morning, spent a couple of hours at the pool, had a great time!

She’ll go to school today and I’ll be able to work some more on edits on Wolf Takes the Lead. I’m at chapter 20. Ten more to go so hope to make a big dent in it until I pick her up from school and she stays overnight again.

Hope you all have a grand day!! I’m getting stuff done, but having fun too!

The Pixie and the Lady

Even if it is your favorite statue, sometimes it’s better to appease a pixie than tempt fate.

Reached 88K on the book, need to concentrate on Wolf Takes the Lead edits, but little one is here today.

Trying to stay cool!

Have a great day!

A Little Whimsy on a Hot Summer’s Day

I like creating “realistic” scenes, rather than just a hodgepodge of art scraps because I’m a storyteller at heart. So this one I used Oscraps backgrounds and Foxey Squirrel’s goat, my clouds, the girl I created with Daz3D and the Capricorn mermaid goat, piglet and his toy piggy are also Daz3D. 🙂

I managed to get to 87,000 words on Lachlan’s story. I wrote the new scene, had to do tons of research for it, which is always fun because I learn new things, but it took all day. But I also figured out where to put the new conflict scene, just need to write it now.

I’m off to do edits and write and hope you all have a lovely weekend!! Don’t you wish you could find this idyllic spot to enjoy?

Fan Mussel Remains

I wonder what got the rest of it!

I’m nearly to 86K, but spent 3 hours at the pool with my granddaughter. She is learning to swim under the water and so proud of herself. I’m proud of her. So I told her we could spent another hour, instead of our normal 2, there if she really wanted to swim. (Not play on the pool stairs.) I keep hoping the YMCA will open one of these days and we can go there in the winter. They were put off for 2 years I think it was because of Hurricane Harvey destroying 2 others. Then with Covid, they didn’t begin working on ours. They built the tennis courts because they’re out in the open. So I’m hoping they’ll have the Y open one of these years.

Okay, I’m off to walk before it gets too hot, work on the story and hopefully get somewhere with it today. I had a great idea for another scene and I have another idea I want to incorporate for conflict. So I’ll try to work on both of those today.

Hope you have a fun day!

Dolphin Art and a Composition

Dolphin Art out of South Padre Island. I took the picture of the dolphin art, then used Daily Textures and waves from Oscraps to create the composite.

Okay, we’re back to our routine. Little one is here and we’ve got a million things to do!

Have a super fun day!
