Every Wolf Needs a Friend

I was playing around with a composite that includes a picture of Eilean Donan Castle. This was one I took while I was in Scotland a while back.

Getting excited about A Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing coming out!

But for now, we’re getting some rain, yay!!! And I’m working on SEAL Wolf Surrender edits and Cougar Magic. Only 17,000 words to go to reach word count!

Have a wonderful day!!

Random Fun

My friend Vonda sent me the beautiful rabbit, and my puppies were hunting the robo vacuum. Max, the white havanese actually caught the brush on the side, and he RARELY barks, but he was barking at the “monster” in the house. lol

And I had fun with steamer chairs–the free ones are here to use: https://kibblywibbly.deviantart.com/art/Steamer-Chairs-stock-photo-free-to-use-531776580

Okay, got to get back to writing!! Have a beautiful day!!!

Birthday Celebration Time!

We’re celebrating my son-in-law’s and my birthday today–my son sent the flowers, and I was having fun with adding a fairy to the dandelion photo.

I’m off to feed the puppies before they starve to death–that’s what they’re telling me anyway. And back to work on the story before we begin partying.

I have to get this done!!! I worked on about 3 more chapters last night after baby went home.

I’ve been watching I Shouldn’t Have Survived. It’s a really good series, but there’s a reoccurring theme: people don’t let anyone know where they’re going, when they’re returning, they don’t take satellite phones, cell phones, GPS locaters, they don’t take water or food, they go it alone.

Yep. And then they get into trouble and no one even knows about it. Now in a few cases, they had the food and water and lost it in a sunken boat, or avalanche, or while pinned under a vehicle. But the avalanche story and the pinned under the vehicle cases? Both were alone and didn’t tell anyone when they were returning and where they were going.

Another thing was checking the weather. Ignoring it or just not checking. And pushing forward, when they should have stayed put. One got lost in a blizzard and kept pushing to reach the top. He was an amateur hiker, lost all sense of direction, had told people where he was going to be, but he ended up in a different valley, and fell off a cliff. Two different cases got lost in the outback, kept walking. Everyone knew where they were supposed to go, and searched for them there, but they didn’t stay put.

Clothing issues. No one planned to be gone for long. Hour, three hours. Most of the places were hot during the day, and the temperature would drop drastically at night. Hypothermia would set in. They were always wearing light clothing. And most of the time they couldn’t be seen against the vast landscape of desert or snowy mountains or the never-ending sea.

I do have some survival crises in my stories–usually just read tons of similar stories on the internet–avalanche in one book, rip current in another, falling through a snowbridge in another. Since I have to keep my main characters smart, I can’t have them doing dumb things like the survivors did. It has to be a real accident. Nothing they could plan for. Or in the case of an avalanche, that knuckleheads created by running up and down a slope on snowmobiles and the wolves had to rescue them.

But it helps to watch shows like this to get new ideas!

Have a great one! I’ve got to get to work on the story before I can play.

Playing Around with Photos!

So baby is here, so fussy, slept all night, didn’t want to be held, wanted to be held, ate a little, played a little, and I finally thought I’d try to put her down for a nap, even though I didn’t think she wanted one. That was it!!!

While she slept, I finished making up the collages for the Click, Grow, Love challenge. It was about taking pictures of what you see in the garden. So I did two: one on garden trinkets and one on flowers and animals in the garden. Though on the trinket one, I had a couple of doves take a seat next to the fairy and one on the stepping stone.

I also worked on a composition for a contest, though mine isn’t that great. Still have lots to learn.But they’re fun to do.

Okay, baby is awake and laughing, so must do something with her. I’m halfway through edits on the book, still no end in sight. lol

Have a wonderful day!!!

Time Traveling to the Past…

I love time travels. I guess it’s like a fish out of water. In my wolf stories, they live LONG lives, so that means some of them have cool historical pasts. I love history, so it’s a way for me to add some of that into the story. For instance, in one of my Highland wolf stories, I show the scene in the past where the wolf pack is dealing with pirates in the Highlands. One of them sees a woman trying to escape brigands who he again later rescues in contemporary times. Her family were pirates of old.

But in A Ghost of a Chance at Love, she actually time travels to old town Salado, only it has a different name in the old west. It’s a town in Texas that I used to visit with my mother, and I always wondered if you went back in time, how would you explain who you were? And how would you return to your own world? It’s also a ghost story…and she’s caught up in a real mess, both in her own world, and in the past–all because of her job and a ghost relation who doesn’t want to leave what she remembers of her world.

I was playing around with a Viking from Neostock, featuring a blending of worlds–a cave that becomes part of an abandoned building as he travels between times. Wouldn’t that be a shock for him and everyone else who encounters him? How would he deal with it? Would he find his way back?

Okay, so I have to immerse myself in the real world–fighting crime between wolves in SEAL Wolf Surrender….

Have a great day, whether you slip into the past or move forward to explore new worlds!

Memorial Day is a Day to Honor Those Who Died…

…in all the wars while serving in the American Armed Forces.  Memorial Day started as Decorations Day in 1868 to honor Civil War soldiers who had died. That’s what Memorial Day is all about. Not just a 3-day weekend holiday off from work, government agencies and banks are closed, and we don’t get mail, and lots of folks are having barbecues.

But it’s nice to take a moment to remember what the day stands for. Thanks to those men and women who served during the time of war and sacrificed their lives.

And I’m off to work! Need 2,000 words on SEAL Wolf Surrender, just for minimum word count, and my publisher is changing the title from the other book: Her Jaguar Protector to You Had Me at Jaguar. I thought that was cute.

Have a great weekend, whether it’s a 3-day holiday, or just the same old thing. I’m off to write.

Time for Wolves

Playing around with a composite–bokeh (created with taking a picture where only the colors of the flowers in the sun were visible) and melting pocket watches are my photos, and the other clocks are free on Pixabay, the wolf from Depositphotos.

I was disappointed last night to learn that I had thought I was 8,000 words ahead of the game, but I’ve dropped down to 5,000. I had been at 7,000 for sure. I guess I lost track when I was sick. Sooo, I need to get that 7,000 lead again. 🙂 <3 I like to get ahead of my goal in case things happen that put me behind and then I’m still ahead….confused yet?

Have you noticed that a lot of movies lately, more so than usual, are constant flashbacks? Constant. We’re in the present, then living a scene in the past, fast forward, fast backward, fast forward. In writing, it makes it confusing, so if something is really, really important to the story, I try to show it in the beginning of the story. It’s okay to mention it, but actually taking the characters, and you, back constantly, can be jarring.

Most of the time I can follow a movie story line when they do that. My dad absolutely couldn’t watch movies like that. He’d be totally lost. But I was watching something that really confused me the other day. I thought it was in the past, but it was in the present again. That’s the problem with time traveling in the middle of a story–constantly. 🙂

But now??? It’s the present and time for the wolves!

Have a wonderful day! I know what I have to do!!!
