ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 6, 2015

C.J. Silver is eager to help the new she-wolves in town renovate the old hotel in time for the holidays, especially if it means spending time under the mistletoe with the alluring Laurel MacTire.

The bustle in the long abandoned hotel attracts the attention of human ghosthunters out to prove the place haunted, but the bigger problem is keeping them from discovering the werewolves in Silver Town. CJ and Laurel have to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. Working together is a surprisingly hot holiday treat for two attractive and clever wolf shifters.

This is what I LOVE about writing books!!! When they are finally available for sale. lol

I hope you feel the same way!

I write these new releases a year earlier. I’m working on Jaguar Christmas now for next October, so when I get questions about the new release, I think, wait, hasn’t it been out for a while? I’ve since written 3 full length novels, 1/2 of another and a novella.

And even while I’m working on my current book, I’m thinking of another couple of books that are vying for my attention.

Or bears.

Blue Rainbow Bear

Or puppies.

Just have to take a picture of another finished bear when it gets light out, and I’m off to write on Jaguar Christmas!

Have a great day!!!

We don’t have much in the line of fall colors where I live in Texas. So seeing them in Minnesota was awesome!

Back to writing! Have a great day!

Okay, So a Little Bit of Fall Color in Houston

Rilo and fall color 007 (640x427)Okay, so I did find a picture I had taken in Houston of some fall colors. But in general, it’s harder to find them than in other areas!

It was really cold when I was shooting all these pictures on the St. Croix, but I stayed out on the deck of the paddle wheeler the whole trip to take them. It was well worth it!

It seemed that the canoeists had color coordinated for the journey down the river with the fall colors. It was fun seeing them on the river as we paddle wheeled on by.

Photographing Subjects–I Can’t Decide

Some photographers are really excellent landscape photographers, or they do fantastic portraits, or animal shots, or macro shots, or…well, the list goes on. And then there’s me.

Like reading, like writing, like photographing, I love everything. I love to see the beauty in all photos no matter what subject a particular photographer loves to create. I can’t draw worth a darn, but when I played around with it, landscapes were my thing.

Crathes Castle Trees like soldiers standing tall and straight--shot from Crathes Castle upper floor window

Crathes Castle Trees like soldiers standing tall and straight–a narrow blanket of golden leaves leaving a marching trail beneath them–shot from Crathes Castle upper floor window

But in photography, I love it all. The same with writing. I love to create Highland medieval romances, and English medieval romances, and wolf, jaguar, cougar and bear shifter romances, and psychic romances, and vampire romances, and romantic suspenses, as long as they have romance, mystery, intrigue, adventure, humor, and most have a body count.

My editor on my wolf stories said of my second book, “Your body count has gone way up.” That was my most successful book for a long time. lol

In my third book, I tried to be nice. Fewer dead bodies. Wasn’t half as successful. 🙂

But I love doing a mix of things. I couldn’t imagine not trying to capture a bee on a flower or a water droplet on a rose petal or a line of thunderclouds or a cougar close up or the vines growing on a castle wall or the North Sea pounding at the shore line beneath a Scottish castle or fall colors anywhere (because we don’t have much of it here), if I have the chance to do it.

I love to capture life as I see it both in my writing and my photography, and so I guess that makes me eclectic. Maybe eccentric. But happy too.

Ancient stone wall, black and white cows, fall colors

Ancient stone wall, black and white cows, fall colors–Scotland

Highland cow river (640x480)

Shaggy Highland Cow and Fall colors reflected in the glassy river

This scene with the black and white cows could be from anywhere, except for the ancient stone wall in front. Can you imagine the Highlanders who built this wall so many eons ago? Why they built it in the first place? What they were protecting? I loved the cows, the hint of color in the foggy forest, but the ancient wall covered with moss and lichen the most. I love history and for writing and reading, I love it the most also.

I started writing jaguar Christmas, and I have the first 1,000 words! 79,000 to go! 🙂

Have a great day!

Pear Fall Leaves

Pear Fall Leaves

I was getting ready to have dinner when I saw the pear tree in fall colors. I had to stop what I was doing and run out with the camera. We don’t get much in the line of fall colors here, so I was excited. 🙂 And I’m working on a jester bear for a possible order. An earlier one I made won first place for Best Dressed Bear.

Loved the colorful canoeists that matched the fall colors on the hillside.  In Jaguar Hunt, I mentioned the characters wearing colorful life vests and their colorful kayaks while they were on the rapids in Belize, so this reminded me of it.

I was wearing 6 layers of clothes here. I stood out on the boat for the nearly 2 hour trip? It was cold, but I had to take pictures. Took some from inside, but too much reflection. It was very cold!

Highland Wolf Christmas-300

A Highland Wolf Christmas (Book 15)

(OCT 7, 2014)

It’s going to take a lot of mistletoe…
Guthrie MacNeill, financial advisor for his clan and werewolf pack, is at his wit’s end when the pack leader’s mate hires a gorgeous party planner to bring holiday cheer to the castle. Guthrie’s wildly attracted to Calla, except he can’t reconcile the fact that his job is to save the clan’s money, and hers seems to be to spend it.

To warm this Highlander’s heart
Calla Stewart has never had a more difficult client. The laird and lady of the castle are delightful, but the handsome Highlander holding the purse strings is quite impossible. Since she specializes in holiday magic, Calla hopes she can make the scrooge-like wolf lighten up. Then Guthrie takes on the role of Highland warrior to protect her from an unexpected threat, and the holidays take a turn for the passionate.

Praise for A Highland Werewolf Wedding:
“Sultry, sexy and satisfying.” –Long and Short Reviews
“Will leave readers longing for a Highlander of their own.” –Romance Junkies

Seeing more wolves today! Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Supposed to have a bonfire. 🙂

So after having all this fun, what do you think I will do? Set a book here, of course! Have a super great Monday!!!

Okay, I’m back to typing up notes and will try to post tomorrow again. Meant to yesterday, but just didn’t have time. We had a lovely signing. One of my fans actually called the store from NY and ordered 6 of the books, so I autographed them for her and they’re shipping them out.

And only in two days–A Highland Wolf Christmas releases!!!
