Have a super Saturday! Back to the world of wolves! 🙂 She-Wolf is the 2nd book of the 4 book contract. If I have time, I’m supposed to write the Wolf in Billionaire’s Clothing. And then Jaguar Jingle Bells. They’re all on the schedule, but my editor wants Jaguar Jingle Bells no matter what if I fall behind for some reason. 🙂

Dunnottar Castle, Scotland

Castle with wolf (581x640)

Getting ready for the next release coming up, Hero of a Highland Wolf (August)! I visited Dunnottar in October, and you can see how green the grass was. Beautiful.

Hero of HL Wolf-300 (390x640)

I just turned in Jaguar Pride edits and they sent me the FINAL approved cover for it. What do you think?

Jaguar Pride-300-1

Love the way they changed the cat’s eyes to make them really stand out, and love the purple.

Okay, I have to get back to proofing A Highland Wolf Christmas.

The fun part of all this is the books are written. No figuring out how to wrap up all the loose ends, or end it period. They’re done. Just final proofing. Yes!

But as soon as I have made the changes to A SEAL Wolf for Sale and turn it in, I’ll be starting with: Chapter 1. A Silver Wolf Christmas. No other words, just title, my name, and Chapter 1.

Where do I go from there?

I have no idea.


Have a terrific TGIF EVE. 🙂

austin (640x573)I have a million and one things to do today–not that I’m going to get them all done, but I’m going to work on it, so I wanted to share a couple of pictures of Austin and then I’m off here and working! I realized I just had an audiobook pop up for final approval for the Mage of Monrovia also! So no time to play with pictures. Although I did anyway. 🙂

Fun with Fans & Their Pictures! Last Day of Blog Tour, 10 hours and Counting!

Terree Nelson Lyman dressed in jaguar print copy

Terree and her friend, Nyola, dressed up in jaguar prints to honor the big cats for the release of Jaguar Hunt. And while they were in the forest, look what they found! A mother and her cub. So they’re doing their best jaguar growls and clawing at the photographer to ensure he doesn’t get near the momma and her cub. Thanks to Terree and Nyola for their service to the jaguars.  🙂

Terree Nelson Lyman reading Jaguar Hunt copy

See what happens when you dive into the jaguar’s world? It’s real! Thanks for sharing your photos with me, Terree!

Under the Cover Blog Reviewer tagged me in the CUTEST ever photo of her daughter and her on a camping trip last year… reading in a tent. She gave me permission to share this on my blog.

Now first, I want to say that jaguar shifters and werewolves are into camping, big time. They love the jungles/forests. So it just seems appropriate that she would be reading JAGUAR FEVER on the camping trip.


And in another fan picture posting:

According to her mother, Rhonda, Elysia is already a huge fan of mine. She has always wanted to be a librarian, but wants to write also. When she learned I’ve done both, her mother said I’ve been Elysia’s hero ever since.

Isn’t that the greatest thing ever? To not be able to leap buildings with a single bound, or stop a ship from plowing into a port city single-handed, but to be able to share stories with girls and boys who someday could very well be sharing their own stories and “moving” readers with their adventurous tales for younger generations to read–to me that is the most wondrous thing of all.

Rhonda's daughter reading The Dark Fae at Groundhouse Coffee

A quote from her mom and Elysia: “She is halfway through [The Dark Fae] and said, “OMG Mom this is getting really good!! I can’t put it down!”

And that is the best compliment an author can ever receive.

What could be better than reading The Dark Fae, drinking hot chocolate at Groundhouse Coffee on a lazy summer Sunday afternoon, while mom’s reading a much different book and drinking coffee?

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, Elysia, for loving my stories. And to her mom, who loves my adult stories, too!!! 🙂

If you are reading my books and want a picture shared on my blog, just send it along and I’ll do so!!!

Bad storms hitting area. Had to shut down.

For the Love of Bookends – http://loveofbookends.blogspot.com/2014/06/jaguar-hunt-by-terry-spear.html

Already a fan of Ms. Spear’s wolves, I have to say that her jaguars are slowly edging them out for equal time in my heart. I love the steamy environment of the jungle, and definitely want to visit it for myself. Tammy and David were meant for each other, even if they’re partners and really shouldn’t hook up. I found myself laughing and smiling the whole time while reading this book.


The mystery and action in this story kept propelling the story forward and the relationship between Tammy and David was so easy that it builds naturally and easily. I will highly recommend this book, and it’s my new favorite in the Jaguar series.

I am a good fan of shifter stories and I will say that Terry Spear has written a well thought out story here, it kept me guessing till the end – who the bad guys where.  The hero is a sexy Jaguar shifter and the heroine, also a Jaguar shifter, is a woman who prefers to work alone so she tries to ditch him at the first chance. These characters are very likeable and end up working well together. I give this book 5 stars as it flowed through out the whole story.

Okay, that’s it!!! While I was off the computer due to wild storms, I had water in the house from all the torrential rains. But, when I got back on the computer, I had: an email from my editor about changes to Jaguar Pride, an email about final copyediting of A Highland Wolf Christmas, an email from my publicist about all the last links for the blog tour, and an email for another guest blog post.

What does that mean?????

I’m feeling overwhelmed, of course!!!! So I have to go into hibernation for a while once I get out the blog posts to let everyone know about the end of the blog tour.

Have a super great Monday!

This was a beautiful exhibit at The Oasis–a sculpture in motion. Loved it.

And here is one that shows the vista. It was a LONG ways down.

Umlauf Sculpture Garden, little boy diving (427x640)At the Ulauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, the artist had a bronze statue of a little boy getting ready to dive into a pond.  So I thought it was fun to show the diving sculptures in the same blog.

I’m getting ready to send A SEAL Wolf for Sale to the last beta reader and then back to working on Her Highland Hero!

I thought I had a great idea for the anthology novella I was supposed to be working on also, but then I realized the heroine in that would die by book 7, so, hmmm, back to the drawing board. LOL

I’m also at Fresh Fiction today with another giveaway!! http://freshfiction.com/page.php?id=5970

The Facebook party was a success in terms of gaining new followers, gave away 14 ebooks, instead of 3, and had fun. One blogger/reviewer site asked me to participate in a FB party at their site on June 29, and two other blogger/reviewer sites asked to participate in the next blog tour blitz. And I received another interview request.

So it was all good, but the main thing was? I had fun!!! 🙂

Storms over the area and sure hope we get rain. Think I’ll go out and water. 🙂  That will improve our chances.

Okay, back to writing!!

Have a super great Sunday!

Waaaaaay Behind!!! But, I WILL Catch Up! :) More Blitz Tour and the Sculpture Gardens

Yesterday for my birthday, a friend took me to Austin to have lunch at the Oasis and then see a sculpture garden. When we returned, I had a Facebook launch party to help promote right afterwards. They’re supposed to be like 15 minutes, but I was on it for 4 hours, and had so much fun, I gave away 14 ebooks–for a variety of different books: Cougar’s Mate, Lady Caroline and the Egotistical Earl, The Highlander, Huntress for Hire and more!

Me in a magic time machine capsule. I was careful NOT to touch any knobs or buttons or such. 🙂

Okay, writing myself out of a corner update.  I figured out what to do. After brainstorming for two days with three beta readers and figuring out one thing, then having to come up with a new idea, because we realized we had a whole other can of worms, I finally got it! So I’m working on the changes now and hope to have this done to send to one last beta reader on Saturday!

Are you ready for the weekend???

And this just slipped in yesterday too!
Bitten by Love Review of Silence of the Wolf:

Silence of the Wolf  is Terry Spear’s newest entry in her werewolves series,it fulfills all expectations. A sexy werewolf romance with lots of action to keep you on the edge of your seat and riveted throughout the night. I fell in love with the multi-dimensional characters,especially the yummy-hot alpha hero. Elizabeth Wildwood is wonderful and likable. She’s tough and goes after what she wants with determination.Tom is the definition of hot, sexy and alpha, plus he has a heart of gold. He’s protective of Elizabeth and his pack.And only Terry could write a series where the individuals are always new, the distant connections always just close and far enough away to be exactly right, and the imagination so free to fall so deeply in love.I love the way she links the behavior and pack dynamics of her lupus garou to that of real wolves in the wild.

 I loved this book! It’s one of the absolute best shapeshifter romances I’ve read in a long time. Terry Spear’s take on the werewolf world is incredibly unique and interesting.  It’s obvious she does a lot of in-depth research. This is a fast-paced, entertaining read with twists and turns I would’ve never expected. I highly recommend Silence of the Wolf!!http://www.bittenbylovereviews.com/2014/06/silence-of-wolf-by-terry-spear.html?spref=fb

Do You Think It Can See Me


The Reading Cafe

“Terry Spear pulls the reader into well paced storyline of suspense, mystery and action; developing friendships; and the introduction to the next generation of potential JAG agents. Not only must David and Tammy search for an elusive and missing jaguar but they are caught in a web of deceit, revenge and betrayal that finds them the target of someone within the force. The secondary characters are colorful; mask their true intent and drive the premise of the storyline. Terry Spear does a terrific job of combining the major and minor players into a tale where you don’t know who is the guilty party or why.

JAGUAR HUNT is a perfect blend of mystery, suspense and romance. The reader is never lost or trying to find their way back to the story. There is always something happening and always a path back to the leading couple and the storyline premise.”“Sandy


The Jeep Diva
Paranormal Haven

An excerpt from Jaguar Hunt:

“Good night.” David closed his eyes, but he couldn’t stop taking in deep breaths of her jasmine soap and she-cat scent mixed into one delightful fragrance. He couldn’t ignore the beat of her heart – or his – that told him he was way too turned on, and that she was feeling the same way. He couldn’t help feeling the heat of her body and wanting to ratchet it up a few degrees, starting with a kiss.


A kiss. Hell, he’d never gone to bed with a woman when it meant total hands off. But lips…they didn’t count, did they?

And lots of more giveaway opportunities!

And in other news, and yes, there is other news beyond the release of Jaguar Hunt! The painters were still at the house again after 7 pm.

I have been intermittently working on A SEAL Wolf for Sale, and had 6 chapters left to finish reviewing and revising, when!!!

Sometimes there’s a moment in your life when everything comes crashing to a halt–in the storybook world.

Yes, I had to keep stopping because we ran out of paint for the one bedroom, the popcorn stuff for the one part of the ceiling only emptied halfway and then stopped working, they ran out of mud and tape because it turned out to be a bigger job, they needed paint to patch up where the tape peeled off some of the wall…. So yes, lots of ordeals with the painting job that’s been going on since Sunday.

And then the blog tour, thought I only had 2 things to report this morning and then my publicist sent me this WHOLE list of more sites I was at this afternoon, which is great! But it meant I spent a whole ton of time sharing.

And then….one of my beta readers and I were hashing out some situations as I was revising and everything was going along fine. UNTIL….*play scary music here*

Everything as we know it wasn’t considered in this story. Yep, one of the characters was pregnant in a story five stories ago, how can anyone expect me to remember that far back??? And in fact, out of the 4 of us who have been reading this, she was the only one who caught it after the fact.


Soooooo, we went back to the brainstorming board. She had some ideas, I squashed them. She had some more ideas. I went back to one of her earlier ones and began to research it, and YES! It’ll work. I won’t have to rewrite the whole book!!!

And like I learned something, readers can too when the book comes out. 🙂 I love it when that happens. I still need to make a couple of changes earlier on, and, well, it’s just going to be great. Believe me.

Disaster averted.

One little change can change a whole story.

*very big sigh*

Once the painting and SEAL and the blog tour is done, I’m going to need a break! 🙂

Oh, wait, didn’t I say I was going to finish Her Highland Hero???

Have a super great Thursday!!!

More Reviews for Jaguar Hunt! & Facebook Fan Page

Jaguar Family

B. shares her review of JAGUAR HUNT by Terry Spear, new title from Sourcebooks.

Not just a romance, Jaguar Hunt has quite a few interesting secondary characters, especially the teen shifters, whose antics I really enjoyed. They, too, proved themselves perfectly able to handle themselves when trouble started, outmaneuvering the “grown ups” in the story repeatedly. Ms. Spear adeptly offers several convincing possibilities for our nemeses, thereby keeping the mystery of the betrayal at the heart of all the trouble intact for nearly the entire story. Once revealed, however, these bad guys were absolutely loathsome and irredeemable, and I found the ending to their part of the story especially satisfying.

As is true in the other Heart of the Jaguar stories, the romantic involvement of the two main characters is a given, but what makes these shifters so much fun is that the women easily hold most of the power in the dynamic. Sure, Tammy experiences a lot of inner conflict about her feelings for David from the beginning, and David is certainly pulling out all the stops to win her over, but he respects her, and is content to follow her lead, demonstrating a willingness to remove himself from any sexually precarious situations before he pushes Tammy’s boundaries. It’s a nice change from some others I’ve read, and still manages to keep the building romance sexy and fun.

While all of the novels in the Heart of the Jaguar series have followed a similar pattern thus far, they’re still extremely entertaining. Tammy is an enjoyably quick-witted and resourceful character, proving herself invaluable to the resolution of the case, as well as being key to the comedic elements of the story as well. David, already a favorite of mine from the previous story in the series, Jaguar Fever, is both a gentleman and a soldier, occasionally veering into “endearing goofball” territory, but always emerging from the ordeal even more likable than before. These stories really are fun to read, and I’m very excited that there are more still to come. http://twimom227.com/2014/06/review-jaguar-hunt-by-terry-spear.html


Having my ceilings repainted where I had water damage and they took the popcorn off the ceilings, and now I’m choking on the dust. I finally had to put on the mask I used for spray painting the wrought iron outside. It’s just not good for your lungs.

And I’m still working on revising A SEAL Wolf for Sale. Finally got to chapter 11, and have 18 chapters, so a ways to go. Hard to concentrate with the painters here every day. But they’re doing a great job and it will look so nice when they are done.

I’ve talked to my publicist about having a Facebook Party, never had one, but have gone to another that an author held and then shared an excerpt, bio, etc and a couple of giveaways on hers. Have another I’m doing for an author on Friday. So I wanted to do one. But my Facebook Fan page doesn’t have a lot of likes. That’s probably because I never go there. So I’m working on that. 🙂

So, if you’ve got time, you can drop by and like away at my Paranormal Romantics Fan Page. I guess I need to list it elsewhere for folks to know it exists.  https://www.facebook.com/TerrySpearParanormalRomantics

I’m off to work on SEAL, have a roaring headache from the dust, but will work through it as I need to finish this!

Behind on Her Highland Hero. Four days and counting. *sigh*

If you have Jaguar Hunt already, have you started reading it? Are you liking it?
