I Think My Puppies are Part Wolf…

Wolves of Ely

Wolves of Ely

I took this picture of the wolf pack at Ely, The International Wolf Center. The black wolf, Luna, is barely visible. She’s the alpha female of the pack. Aidan and Denali are brothers. And the other wolf, Boltz, is Luna’s brother.

I think I’m raising a couple of wolf cubs. I picked up new food for the puppies since Max is now 1 years old. Tanner is still on puppy food at 9 mos. But man, they tried to rip through the sacks like a couple of wolves. They wolf down their food like they’ve been starving for days. I’m getting some dishes that will make them take a little more time to get to their food. I tried an insert in their own dishes, but it didn’t work well.

And usually at night they’re fine about not getting fed again, for the most part. But not last night. One feeding of the new stuff and they were practically howling for more. Whining, trying to figure a way to get to the food way up above. And here I worried they might not like it!

Havanese are oftentimes finicky eaters, all the forums I read say. They barely will eat their food during the day. NOT mine. They are a couple of wolves.

Still working on Billionaire–6,000 words to go!

Sunsets and Bears and Books!

I went out to get the mail and saw this sunset and had to capture it!

Every day is a day filled with a goal or six.

I recently read a post where the author said she was bored. I just can’t even imagine.

I have 3 Matheson bear orders I need to complete–they sent me the wrong fabric from Scotland yesterday–my fault. They changed up a scarf for a square and it’s too small to use to make a sash for the bears. So I had to reorder. I received another clan bear order this morning, different clan, MacPherson–headed for Australia, and luckily, I do have that fabric.

I’m still working on a trip to Minnesota to see a fan and friend who is taking me to see the International Wolf Center in Ely. I was also interviewed in their magazine once, which was really cool, given I write about wolf shifters that are based on wolves, and setting up a book signing at a store up there also, and making sure they’ll have my most current release on hand!

I’ve been trying to come up with a more exciting opening on The Viking’s Highland Lass. I had to rewrite Cougar’s Mate for that same reason. Sometimes I have to get to know my characters a bit before I can figure out where to take them. In this one, it’s action packed, lots of humor, romance and suspense, much like my other books, and not at all how I started it before. Well, some of it is. Because some of the scenes did have that forward movement and lots of what I like: action, humor, romance and suspense.

I tried writing for one publisher once, but I had too much suspense in the story. I tried writing for another and I had too much humor. 🙂 I tried writing for another and I had too much romance. All three of those lines folded. No more.  Crashed. Burned. Vanished.

Maybe, just maybe, readers would have loved those stories that had action, adventure,  humor, romance, and suspense all lumped in one. Oh… yeah, they do!

Anyway, so I got the final critique from one last reviewer, and so need to make the changes and then Cougar’s Mate will be ready to go!


So though  I thought my main focus today was The Viking’s Highland Lass

I have to revise my plans and spend the day revising Cougar’s Mate, then getting it ready to publish. 🙂

I have no time to be bored!

What about you? Are you ever bored?
