Cougar Halloween Mischief is Up and Running!

Ricky Jones is looking forward to his first day on the job as a deputy sheriff in the cougar-run town of Yuma Town, but he doesn’t expect to run into his former girlfriend while he’s wearing his cougar coat. Now he wants her back in the worst way, but he’s sure she’s going to be even madder at him for dumping her three years back.

Mandy Richards is on her way to an interview at a hospital north of Yuma Town for the position of a Licensed Practical Nurse when she hits a cougar in the thick foggy night, a full moon silhouetted in the gloom on Friday, the thirteenth. Checking on the wounded cougar changes her world forever.

But her most recent ex-boyfriend isn’t going along with Ricky’s plans to renew his relationship and things are bound to turn deadly.

We had violent storms yesterday and I put one of my dogs in the closet with his bed. He didn’t make a sound, so I think he felt safer. I had a standard poodle I gave a home to years ago that was terrified of storms. Her former owner had her sleeping on a covered metal porch and storms were magnified, poor thing. So she would sleep in my storm closet and was perfectly fine. A couple of times we curled up in there with her when we were living in Oklahoma too. More storms scheduled for today, and tomorrow for Halloween? 34-52 degrees. Brrrrr. But no storms. Thankfully.

I’m still working on edits on Red Wolf Christmas. I’m up to ch 10, and 20 chapters to go and an epilogue. My process is to go through the whole book and accept and delete all the small stuff. Then just make sure I’ve answered all the questions in the comments that I can. She often questions stuff throughout the book that are explained a few paragraphs down. You don’t hit someone in the eye with all the details right away. You have to show them as you write the story. Wait for it. Wait. Wait for it. There, see? It’s there. Sometimes something can be shown earlier, but not always.

This time, she wanted me to make some major changes. So they didn’t affect chapters 1-20. I made some of the changes in ch 21 and 22, but it will change the last 10 chapters of the book. So I’m going through each chapter before that, making any other kinds of changes I need to, and then probably tomorrow I’ll begin working on the last 10 chapters. And hopefully turn it in.

Then I have to proof the other book. They’re easy, just reading through, making sure there aren’t any mistakes made in the book written 10 years ago. Technology changes, so sometimes I need to update that. I wrote a book 20 years ago before cell phones were a thing. It makes such a difference. lol Now, everyone has to have a cell phone and you have to figure out how to “get rid of them” to put the characters in peril. I’ve had my editors telling me that I can’t have “blackout” areas where there is no cell service. But they exist. Not only in mountainous regions, but like from Waco, Texas to Houston, there’s an area where you can’t get any cell service. It’s like the Bermuda Triangle. Without the Bermuda and the Triangle.

Okay, before this gets any longer, I’ve got to get to work. As much as I wish the editing would get done without me, it just refuses.

Have a super, lovely day!! I’m going to enjoy the rain, but hobble down to the mailbox before it happens!

My granddaughter loves Dory so my daughter made her a Dory pumpkin. As soon as she saw it, she wanted Nemo too. They’re best friends and are always together, you see. lol

Okay, up at 3:45 with more pain in my arm. Decided to get up and do some stuff, then try to go to bed for a little while longer. I have to take the dogs in for their shots this morning, poor dogs. And I’m over halfway done on proofing Night of the Billionaire Wolf. Ninety pages to go! And here is the delightful cover for the book!

USA Today bestselling author Terry Spear brings you a shifter world like no other

It’s not easy being a billionaire, a wolf shifter, and a woman…

Lexi Summerfield built her business from the ground up. But with great wealth comes great responsibility, and some drawbacks Lexi could not have anticipated. Lexi never knows who she can trust… Even on vacation, Lexi has a hard time trying to relax. And for good reason―the paparazzi are dogging her, and so is someone else with evil intent.

Then Lexi meets bodyguard and gray wolf shifter Ryder Gallagher, who’s also vacationing at Redwood National Park. When the two run into each other on the hiking trails, and then serendipitously rescue two bear cubs, Lexi feels safe for the first time in she can’t remember when. But secrets have a way of surfacing… With the danger around Lexi escalating, Ryder will do whatever it takes to stay by her side…

Fans’ Kitty Cats Love My Books!

You know how particular cats are! Thanks to my cat lovers and fans for sending me their adorable cat photos.

I’m off to finish making changes to Claiming the White Bear! I had another thought about Silver Town and had to incorporate it.

Oh, and so I was looking at plot ideas to give me a jump start to write the Wolff brother’s story, and one was: turn one of your dreams into a story. Are you kidding me????? You don’t even want to know about the bizarre dream I was having this morning.

Okay, off to edit!!!

Have a super day, and if anyone gets catty with you, sic one of the BIG cats on them.
