Okay, so I wrote 400 words on Red Wolf yesterday and I couldn’t get anywhere with it and wham! I get Wolf Fever’s 10th Anniversary Edition to proof, along with the new novella. I started on that, figuring it was easier to proof than to write the other novel, and I need to turn this in 9 days from now. I’m up to page 84 of 361 and raring to go this morning.
But first, my computer crashed and I was in the middle of redoing a cover for Scepter of Salvation. And of course when I brought up Photoshop, it wasn’t one of the pictures that was recovered. Of. Course.
And I have no idea if Red Wolf was recovered properly either. I haven’t opened it up yet.
That is my morning, and it’s going to get better. I’m going to make sure of it! Off to get going on Wolf Fever! So I can get back to Red Wolf!
Have a wonderful day free of stress, if that’s at all possible in the world today.
So I went to blog yesterday, and they changed everything up again. Please, leave things alone. *sigh*
Red rosebud getting ready to bloom. I love red flowers in the garden. I love purple, but red is really showy. And the butterflies and hummingbirds agree. The bees love any color. They’ll “flock” to my holly’s white flowers in spring even. But I have yellow, lavender, hot pink flowers, and still, the hummingbirds and butterflies prefer the red flowers above all else.
And, did I mention it’s showy? When I see a row of red roses or red-flowering crape myrtles or azaleas, they catch my eye more than white or any other color. I love the combination of red and purple. And some yellow makes for a pretty scene. But green evergreens help to bring it all together. In my humble opinion.
So for the last two days, I was trying to work on Vampire Redemption, Highland Wolf edits, and shipped off books to readers. I also dropped off my tax paperwork, and picked up plants and dirt, the fun part of the day!
I picked up red pentas, a hummingbird and butterfly magnet, and a pink hibiscus, they didn’t have red, so I got pink for my granddaughter because that is her favorite color, and a couple of citronella plants. Now, they said they stave off mosquitoes. NOT true. They have to have their leaves crushed to do that. False advertising!
Okay, so I’m working of vampire redemption edits this morning, have 1 more scene to write. I need to start proofing Highland Wolf and then send it off. And I need to ship another 30 books or so today. Oh, and plant!!!
I planted 20 of the pentas last night, a bunch of flower seeds, have more, and I need to plant the hibiscus and some salvia seeds.
Have a fun day! Mine is happily busy. No little one. Spring Break. Yay, for Grandma! Which means I really have to get stuff done with the unexpected extra time on my hands. Yay!
Do you see the little goats trying to escape? The donkey that wants to? And the baby pig that is looking for something to eat?
I should be sleeping, but my shoulder and arm hurt too much so I gave up on it. I’m doing edits on Red Wolf Christmas. Does this sound familiar?
While I was waiting for the kids to show up at the fair, I was taking some pictures of flowers, the pond, and wild grasses. I’m not sure what the flowers are, but they have a shape similar to some I have growing in my garden, different color and they’re great for hummingbirds.
I’m off to finish up the edits I wrote up and then head back to bed. It’s only 4 am. Have a super, lovely, fun-filled day!!!
It’s been a morning and a half. About 2 months ago, I reinjured my shoulder where I’d torn the rotator cuff. It took a year to heal. But thankfully, in 14 years, it was fine. Until I reinjured it. I think it was lifting all those 40 lbs of bags of mulch, 18 of them about 2 months ago. Anyway, it kept getting worse and worse and worse. The first time, I had a frozen shoulder and could only raise my arm part way. I had to have surgery. It’s not as bad this time, but it aches constantly and so sleeping is intermittent.
So this morning I was in awful pain as usual, and I just gave up on it and began editing the book again at 4 am. We’ve had torrential storms from the tropical storm and had 9″ of rain already. I had to take the dogs out on their leashes to get them to do their duty. NO WAY were they going out in the lightning and thunder and pouring rain to do anything. They could hold it. Right. lol But if I took them out, they felt a little safer.
Anyway, so I’m up to ch 15, trying to still figure out how to end this. If I could get a couple of good nights of sleep, maybe I could figure it out!
I had made so many changes, so many new scenarios, so many shifts of scenes that I need to see if it was all working. So far, so good.
Have a great day! I love the rain. I wish it would spread out a little and not all come at once though!
I finished edits on Night of the Billionaire Wolf and turned it in. Yay! Now I’m back to Red Wolf Christmas. It’s due in 2 weeks and I’m still working on it. It would be all right if I had it finished and was just editing it, but…it’s not finished. ugh.
This morning I moved a scene to a couple of chapters earlier. Which changes things for the next about 3 chapters. The butterfly effect. I haven’t figured out the ending, or what ties everything together yet. sigh. It’s got to come soon!
Okay, I’m off to work on it and hope your day is beautifully orchestrated.
So I finished proofing Legend of the White Wolf and now am proofing
White Wolf to the Rescue: A Legend of the White Wolf Novella. The first editor question: What happened to the woman who helped the two PI partners escape? One of them, David Davis, was hooked on her, but I haven’t written his story yet.
Well, it was years and years and years before I was able to write another white wolf book. Years. Which meant tons and tons of books!!! I write between 5-8 books a year. When I finally wrote the next white wolf book (you have to know I always thought the series would peter out, the boss would say no more, so I just had never had time to do something with that sub-series), it was a long, long time ago. Ten years ago that I had read the book. As many books that I have to write, I didn’t have time to reread the whole book. Poor Elizabeth was forgotten. In one of the subsequent books, I made a mention of her returning to her pack, but I can’t remember which one. *sigh*
What happened to Elizabeth? I will have to make something more up. See? That’s the fun of being a writer. I can tell a story and it doesn’t have to be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Well, for them, in all honesty, it is the truth.
I’m off and running, got to finish proofing the novella and jump on Red Wolf Christmas again before something else waylays me. Hope you have a beautiful day!!!

Okay, I’m off to write!!!! I was out weeding this morning, hot, muggy, awful, but at least I got most of it done. It helped to have done the days of weeding earlier because this was easier to pull up this time.
