Macro Shots in the Garden

Coneflower, yellow esperanza, coleus, lavender lantana, pink zinnia

I haven’t played with macro shots in a while, so thought it would be fun to give it a try!

I’m only 3,000 away from word count goal on SEAL Wolf Surrender. Annoyed with myself that I couldn’t just at least write the last 3,000, just for the minimum goal, but the story isn’t coming to me. Baby is here soon, so then the story REALLY won’t be coming to me. lol

I need to make the bad guys’ presence known early on. One is from the very beginning, so that’s good. I’ve been watching Cold Case Files, interested in seeing procedures on criminal cases, because I write romantic suspense, and the guys they’re after are criminals.

My villains are often shifters, so they take care of their own. Sending a shifter to jail when the world doesn’t know about them, won’t work. It’s fun creating a fantasy world within the real world (cougar shifters, wolf shifters, jaguar shifters, bear shifters, snow leopard shifters), though sometimes it’s just easier creating a whole fantasy world, where the characters visit the real world (as in my fae series).

All right, off to play with baby! Have a wonderful TGIF!

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!

Hard Drive Exchange Tonight!–Butterfly/Hummingbird Flowers

My computer crashes constantly. I am getting it up some times, like now, so trying to post my blog before it crashes again, and working on my mss until it crashes again. It’s still faster than using a typewriter. 🙂

columbine (540x640)

columbineYou can see with a little bit of sunlight, the plant is beginning to turn a bit green. 🙂

columbine with fairy houseI’ve never grown so many different kinds of flowers. These are all butterfly/hummingbird flowers. But when I first got them home, the top picture is what they looked like. They still look like really bizarre alien plants, don’t they? It’s kind of cool seeing them before they look like a real plant. Add a fairy house and now it’s not alien but a fairy world.

I have others that I’ll show their transformation as soon as they do something!

But I’m a now kind of girl and I like to see what they look like from the get-go.

This is cuphea from the Mexican Heather family. And the ACE gardener says his attracts all kinds of hummingbirds.

cupheaEsperanza 001 (640x427)This is esperanza, also supposed to be a hummingbird flowering plant. Hmmm.

I’ll show more pictures as they progress and then IF they really attract anything, hopefully I’ll get pictures of those too!

Have a great day. Off to write really, really fast before my computer crashes again.
