Scarecrow in the Making & Rats in the Belfry

While I’m getting ready to go to press with Dawn of the Jaguar, I decided to add a jaguar to the title page too.

Okay, we had rats again. Maybe not in the belfry, but… So when my granddaughter and I took the dogs out for the last time last night, here are rats running all over the yard. ugh. Both havanese are super fast, but Max is the true hunter of the two. So he kept after them. I knocked another rat off the feeder, hiding in plain sight, and both dogs took after it. I don’t know if they got him or not. They’ve killed one before and I didn’t have them for a long time. Rats are very social and they avoided the property because of it. Word got back to the gang that killer beasts were on the loose back there. Hopefully, last night’s chase will be enough to detour them. But I’m not counting on it unless they killed one.

So I’m taking my granddaughter home this afternoon, trying to finish proofing Dawn of the Jaguar this morning. She helped me make part of a scarecrow out of her brother’s clothes that are too small for him now. I need to make the head and add straw for the hands. The difficulty will be making a cute head!

Okay, I only have 18 more pages to proof and then upload it to the sites and it’s done. Have a super fun day! We’re off to more book reading and scarecrows and proofing!

Fairy Art

I managed to get most of the edits done on Dawn of the Jaguar. I need to finish them up this morning. Little one is staying overnight from about 3:30 on so I wanted to get this done and start proofing it one last time.

I did manage to finish creating the title page for the first book in the fae series. I just took this picture on my computer, which caused the strange marks on the page. I want to do this with each of the fae series to give it uniformity. I created the fae with Daz3D and I’ll make a different one for each. 🙂

I was out weeding this morning. It’s nice and cool in the mornings, though it’s going to be heating up mornings again. And we’re still getting to 90 during the day.

I’m off to get back to work before I can’t!

Have a great day!!

Dawn of the Jaguar Available for Preorders!

Erin Chambers is leaving the FBI to join her father in his Big Cat Investigative Agency. She loved her job, but she wants to be closer to her father and have more freedom to run as a jaguar shifter when she can. But she knows dealing with her dad’s sole private investigator, Jason Biggerstaff, is going to take some work. He’s a hot jaguar and turns up the heat whenever he’s around her without any effort at all, to her consternation. But he’s not fond of the FBI, and she and he butt heads all the time. He’s been like a son to her father, so she knows he was thinking he could take over the business one day. That’s not happening.


Jason Biggerstaff is busy with investigations, not thrilled that Erin is joining the agency, but all that changes when they are embroiled in missing kids’ cases, their usual run-of-the-mill investigations, and she’s really good at her job. No matter how much he fights the attraction he has for her, it’s a losing battle. What starts out as just them handling their usual cases, turns into something worse—a shifter in trouble and they must save him without landing themselves in a worse mess than they already are, which includes dealing with this growing need to take their relationship to something they never bargained for. https://read.amazon.com/kp/card?preview=inline&linkCode=kpd&ref_=k4w_oembed_7OUxFW94egk48H&asin=B09GW5ZN44&tag=kpembed-20

I’m excited about getting the beta reads back today for Dawn of the Jaguar. I have little one today, so I might not be able to get much done, but I’m thrilled to finish this up and then proof again.

I was trying to figure out where to go with Angel Fae. I had two options. She finds her way back home to be a regular fae again, and no longer an angel, something she wants more than anything, which means she has to find a way to do that. Or…she decides this is who she’s meant to be. An angel, helping others. We swore my dad had a guardian angel throughout his life that protected him all the many times he could have died. Or maybe different ones. 🙂

I’ve also been going back over my fae books–have 10 of them, trying to get ideas of who might be in Angel Fae, and while I’m doing it, I’m going to update them and try and see if I can add the World of Fae map to the stories. I’m not sure if I can do it, but I’m going to try. I already found the cobra fae kingdom I had forgotten about and added it on the map. They were in only one story early on. I’ll have to write more about them one of these days.

May be an image of map and text that says 'Wolf Mountain Pack Winged Fae Kingtom Golden Fae Kingdom Dragon Fae Kingdom Cobra ae Kingdom Hawk Fae Kingdom alcon Fae Kingdom Sphinx Fae Kingdom Man Phantom Fae Kingdom Griffin Ringnme Fae Strangewood Forest Dark ae Crystal Falls Kingdom Bar Harbor THE WORLD OF FAE'

Okay, have to get off here to play with little one!

Have a beautiful day!

Creating a Map for the World of Fae

I’ve always wanted to do this and I finally did! I need to create one for the World of Elves and for the Magic of Inherian. It really helps for me to visualize where things are in my fantasy worlds. But I wasn’t sure how to do it.

I read all of Falcon Fae–that’s a great book, if I do say so myself–and I am going to incorporate some of the characters in that one in Angel Fae now.

I finally managed to get to the grocery store yesterday–we had flood warnings on Friday–5″ of rain. So that means everyone goes crazy, not knowing if we’ll have deliveries, not knowing if it will go on and on, which they were predicting, and buys out the store. Here it was Tuesday following the storms, and lots of items were still out. *sigh*

One of these times I need to go to the store before the storm hits! I was running out of potatoes and chocolate. Horrors!

Okay, off to work on Angel Fae. Have a wonderful day!

Giraffe Art

I took the photo of the giraffes at the Omaha zoo and then changed their setting. Usually, at most zoos I’ve been, the giraffes are standing on dirt, no grass anywhere, but these at the Omaha zoo have a woodland setting and it really was pretty, but to eliminate all the distraction, I changed out the background to showcase the giraffes.

I have had so many deadlines I’ve been trying to meet and I realized that my Jingle Bell Wolf is coming October 26 and my promo blogs are due today. Ack.

I went to grab the 4 excerpts that they wanted and no clean manuscript to do it from. I did one promo blog and turned it in. I need to write two more blogs. I did manage to write the two synopsis that I needed for A United Shifter Christmas and turned them in. I finished the last of Dawn of the Jaguar, and now am proofing it. I’ll get that done today, and need to write the blogs and send Dawn off to my beta readers. But I have little one here today, so we’ll see what I can get done! And then I need to proof A United Shifter Christmas one last time and I’m free and clear! Yay! To get to work on the next project.

Have a beautiful day! It cooled down this morning, finally!

Goblin and the Raven

Created the goblin with Daz3d and the background and other elements are from Oscraps.

My little granddaughter said he was a prince goblin, where’s the queen? lol

Anyway, I managed to get 3,000 words on Dawn of the Jaguar. It has word count, just trying to finish it up. I was working on the stuff for Shifters and Mistletoe and we’ll be announcing links and such tomorrow.

I still need to write up the short and longer synopsis for mine, A United Shifter Christmas. And I want to proofread it one more time.

Okay, since little one is here, I’m off to do things with her. She was sick on Tuesday, figure it was a 24 hour bug. She was fine Wednesday and seems fine today.

Have a great day!!! And if you meet any goblins, just be super nice to them.

Smilodons at Play

I’ve always been fascinated by so many things, but when I was young, I read everything I could about prehistoric life, and cavemen and their world later. I love all things prehistoric. But they’ve discovered so many new animals, new ways of thinking about them–feathers, rather than just leathery skin, its fascinating.

These are Smilodons. As you can see, one isn’t really in a playful mood. The other is. Such is life.

I’m off to get busy! I had set my preorder date for November 2 on Dawn of the Jaguar, but I wasn’t giving myself enough time to really get it done, especially with all the other things coming up–edits on other books, etc, so I backed it off to November 30th.

Have a super fun day!
