Nature is Art

Baby is on her way and so I have only about a minute to do this. Picture of a monarch on purple flowers with a splash of blue flowers. A robin closeup and a robin in the big picture out in the forest preserve on our walk. You can see the snow all over the gravel still. And a cute little tapir swimming in water, the shadows of things up above creating a surrealistic art in the water below.

I wrote 3,000 words on the plane on Claiming the White Bear…but I haven’t had time to type up the notes. Maybe today if I can keep baby preoccupied a bit. It’s cold!!!! And I’m loving it.

Have a super, duper day!

Snow Means No Wolves

We were planning to see the wolves at the reserve, but we had a snowstorm, so that meant the wolf reserve closes for the rest of the year until spring, I guess. We missed going last year because they had the first snowstorm in years at Christmastime.

It’s beautiful! We had a tree branch down from the weight of the snow, probably because the leaves are all on the trees still. And over 5,000 homes were without electricity. We were lucky. I rarely get to see snow, but last year they had it in Omaha, and then I returned home and we had snow twice in the Houston area. So it’s been crazy weather. They often don’t see snow in Omaha until later also.

I’m off to write and then go to a forest reserve!

Have a super great day!

Jack-O’-Lanterns

Love this time of year, especially if it will cool down. I put out pumpkins one year and they were moldy mush before it was time for Halloween. My kids and I get together every Halloween for a fun family tradition.

I’m off to write for a bit. I reached 23,000 words on Claiming the White Bear and walked 6 miles through the zoo and the pumpkin patch, rode a train, and took a wagon ride through the pumpkin patch. All fun!

Have a super, fun day!!!

Ice Cream and Me–Brainstorming in My Fantasy World

A visit to a fun ice cream shop, and my fantasy version of me brainstorming on the Woodland Fae. I am 35,000 words into the book, but I was working on Claiming the White Bear yesterday, 3200 words done, thereabouts. I need to type up the notes and it’s usually more than I think. Going to the zoo today, so ready to capture some great pictures. I hope. Sometimes the animals are perfect models, sometimes not.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Feels Like Fall!!!!

Okay, so while baby was here yesterday, I created these and I actually managed to write 3,000 words on Woodland Fae. I was feeling glum because I hadn’t written any on it in the last few days. My goal was to be at 35,000 today. With 33K done, I’ll make it!

I went out and pulled up all the zinnia from one of my biggest flowerbeds this morning. It’s garbage day and I had three, 40-gal sacks of zinnia and weeds to put out in the coooooool weather. Oh, it’s wonderful! Though I was still killing mosquitoes like crazy. I have two more zinnia beds, but those are still flowering really well.

A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas

Woohoo, a great review at Fresh Fiction! “Danger and holiday delights are perfectly balanced in this tale of werewolf doctors in love!” In A BILLIONAIRE WOLF FOR CHRISTMAS, two doctors fall in love and save the werewolf world one wolf at a time. Terry Spear crafts a story that is homespun, full of humor and family unity, and tops it off with a few thrills and a sparkling romance. I look forward to Terry Spear’s next wolf shifter romance. ~~Mandy Owen

Cougar Magic is now available in print!

She doesn’t think she needs a hero, but he’s taking the job.

Deputy Sheriff and cougar Stryker Hill is not on duty when the sheriff asks him to check out a possible break-in of a resident’s home while they are away on a cruise. What he doesn’t expect is to find the beautiful and mysterious cougar he’d seen at a Christmas charity where he was showing his abs off as Santa Clause. But she’s got some moves to rival his own as she takes him down and he’s left wondering who she really is and how he’s going to keep her from leaving Yuma Town before he learns the truth.

Cougar shifter Nina Lamar has to protect her sister from the pharmacist who laid the blame on her for his thievery, and Nina has to help clear her sister’s name. But now Nina’s got the sexy Santa on her case, and she needs to deal with him first. She has to admit he’s just as hot as when she’d first seen him, but the guys who are after her sister, are after her too now. She to needs save them both before it’s too late. Too bad Stryker thinks she’s one of the bad guys, unless she can prove otherwise. That’s hard to do when her visions are the only proof of why she’s there in the first place. But time is running out, and she has to save her sister—nothing else matters…except the sexy deputy sure can be a hot distraction on the cold, snowy nights.

I still need to get help from Apple for their iTunes Producer for my keychain issue.

It feels so good to be cool!!! Okay, I have to do a million things and write my word count today, so I’m off and running.

Have a great one!!!

Sunrise on a New Day

 

Baby is on her way, but just wanted to say, still having trouble with Apple. It’s the keychain thing, which means I can’t access iTunes Producer, and no iBook for Cougar Magic until I get it resolved. But, I did finish the proofing of the print book for Cougar Magic, and it’s under review now!

It’s actually cool this morning! Won’t last, but what a nice change!

I’m going to try and write something on Woodland Fae, if I can today, which will be published next.

Have a great day!!! I’m off to play with baby first.

I didn’t post a blog yesterday because I was trying to get Cougar Magic ready for release and I’m working on finalizing the print book.  Just need to go over it one last time. Which meant I didn’t get any word count down on Woodland Fae for the last two days. *sigh* Oh, and iBooks isn’t listed because I’m having trouble getting hooked up with them again, like last time. I was on the phone with supervisors for hours trying to get it straightened out last time. ugh. So I’ll be trying to get that done today too.

But this is what it’s all about. I have a ton of book beginnings, and tons of finished books that need to be heavily revised (early books I wrote) and none of that matters unless they are finished and ready for readers!

I’d hoped to catch up today on writing, but with proofing the print book, probably not happening.

Off to work!!! Have a fun day!!!!! It’s time to celebrate! Well, maybe not until I resolve the issue with Apple and finish the print book, but then!!! It’s time!

Fantasy…Reality

A hero being heroic and raindrops falling on a water lily pond.

Even with a made-up world, it has to seem real. It has to have some foundation of reality. It makes it easier for readers to feel connected.

In my YA fae stories, my world is different. If they shift from dragon to fae, they’re dressed. The same with the wolf shifters. They are fae. It’s a fantasy world, but combined with the real world when they visit us and wreak havoc. Believe me, they do it too. To me. All the time.

In my real world (ha!, you know, as far as reality goes), the shifters have to remove their clothes before they can shift. I mean, come on, it’s the real world, right?

And that’s all I’m saying as I go off to play in…hmm, the Woodland Fae….or Cougar Magic. Cougar Magic is the final read-through. Woodland Fae needs its daily word count. I want get my writing done, but I want to get Cougar Magic published. It’s a conundrum.

Have a great day!!! I’m off to play with reality.

Art in Nature and Otherwise…

A “beehive”, a SciFi motorbike kinda, and a snapdragon that produces dragons, and beautiful butterflies. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Yesterday, I did the edits on Day of the Wolf, and wrote 3,000 words on Woodland Fae. Baby stayed home with her sick parents. And that meant I was trying to get as much as I could done. I might have to take care of her on Monday, which does away with my scheduled writing. I’m off to re-read Day of the Wolf! And I got edits back from another beta reader on Cougar Magic, so going to work on that too.

Hope you are staying healthy and having fun this weekend!! It’s going to be another hot day. 98 heat index in October. ugh.

Art: Whimsy

Sometimes it’s just fun to be whimsical. If you can’t finish a building, be an artist. Have some fun with colorful chairs. I want the purple one to sit on while having a peppermint mocha latte. You? The butterfly at the butterfly garden–beauty in nature. And an alternative to storing the bike in the garage.

Baby is on her way and I hope she’s feeling better! Made 4,000 words yesterday, woohoo! Shooting for a 1,000 today with baby here.

Have a magical day!
