Great Review!

You Had Me at Jaguar: Emotionally thrilling, sexy, witty and engaging adventure filled with heart pounding danger, exciting twists and unrelenting passion…. was a great read from beginning to end. Highly entertaining reading that was so hard to put down (house work was left undone…. LOL) was a great read!–Cali

I loved this review!

I’m still sick, still coughing my lungs out, and still barely getting any sleep. But despite that, I finally managed to write 7,000 words on the story yesterday. So I’m 8K over word count and still have a long ways to go. But I’m thrilled to finally be moving forward again to the end!

At least I finally could concentrate on the story yesterday, unlike earlier when, because of lack of sleep, everything was just a foggy mess, hard to concentrate and come up with ideas. I still need to sleep. Desperately. In the middle of the night, I envisioned three of me, each one taking turns to cough while something was coming out of the darkness to get me. The other night, I dreamed I was being choked to death, until I could finally get a cough out. So yes, nighttime hasn’t been my friend.

Okay, I’m off to cough and write and hopefully get somewhere with this. I was just asked for marketing materials for the book on top of that. No more deadlines! I need to finish this book.

Have a delightful day!!!

Fun Stuff in the Garden

First zinnia flower from seed. And the new orange and yellow daylilies finally bloomed. The mushroom is the fairies’ planting, I’m sure.

Off to write!! I’ve been working on the cover for Claiming the White Bear. It helps me to visualize the characters. I added a little word count to that book yesterday (up to 12,000+ now), and to SEAL Wolf Surrender. I’d prefer a conflictive couple for the cover of the new white bear book but couldn’t find any. Conflict is better! For a book that is romantic suspense.

Anyway, I started Claiming the White Bear at Christmas time while visiting my son and DIL. He was playing a game and I was watching it and giving direction (lol) and writing. Perfect vacation. But then I got a new contract for 3 more books and had to get down to writing deadline books.

Oh, and my daughter claimed the Sunshine ligustrum that volunteered next to the house. So I’ve got to try and dig it up for her. 🙂  I love being able to share plants!

I’m back to the word count!!! Have a great day!!!

Evolution of Audible Covers–by the Publisher

Savage Hunger: Heart of the Jaguar, Book 1 | [Terry Spear]

Savage Hunger, Book 1, 1st book in Audible

This one was nicely done.

http://www.audible.com/pd/Romance/Savage-Hunger-Audiobook/B00NAGI2KQ

Jaguar Pride | [Terry Spear]

Jaguar Pride, Book 4, 2nd book in Audible  (someone got them out of order)

Poor design.

When we upload our indie work, one of the things Audible said is that we can’t use a black border like this. Or just use a wider version of the book cover. But sometimes it’s hard to use the same cover for the expanded version from a cover that is a narrower proportion for a book cover to fit a square audiobook cover, especially when we’ve bought the cover from a cover artist and it’s four or five years down the road. But a publisher should be able to do this right.

SEAL Wolf Hunting | [Terry Spear]

SEAL Wolf Hunting, Book 16, 1st wolf book in Audible, 3rd book ready in Audible. This one was interesting, but I could have done it. And it doesn’t make use of the whole space to allow for the title and author’s name to expand a bit, plus it obscures the actual cover. Since this is a brand new ebook and print book release, I don’t see why they couldn’t have made it more like the next cover or the first cover.

Jaguar Fever | [Terry Spear]

Jaguar Fever, Book 2, 4th book in Audible.

I love this one!

Which do you like best?

Okay,  back to my regularly scheduled writing! Have a great day!

Fresh Fiction Review:

“She can’t ditch him so she might as well happily join him.”

Jaguar Hunt

JAGUAR HUNT drops you in the middle of the action and all you can do is hold on tight. Author Terry Spear brings to life her Jaguar world with a lot of humor, plenty of sizzling sex and of course the spectacular touches of good guy versus bad guy action. I really loved David and Tammy as agents and as a couple, they fit perfectly and once she stopped trying to dump him, they worked well together. He accepts that she is an agent and knows how to handle herself, even if his instinct tells him to protect the little woman, he is smart enough not to. Tammy finds herself opening up to him about a worry she has concerning her family and knows it will go no farther. The twins added a lot of humor to this book and I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times, but when it is necessary those boys and another set of twins that come into play dive into the action without fear. Great book, fun read and I cannot wait to see what Ms. Spear comes up with for the next one.

Purchase Link:
Back to listening to the audiobook for The Mage of Monrovia! Decided to work on that first, and then try to get my word count in for Her Highland Hero after that!
Have a super great and fun Sunday and the first of June!!!

A NEW Cover!!!!!

One of the most exciting and fun things for us to get when we’re working on our books is a cover. Sometimes I get these way before I’ve written the book and sometimes afterward. This time, I’ve already written the book.  Isn’t he just perfect???

JaguarPride_041714_B

I think so!

This one will be out Jun 3. 🙂

Okay, today I’ve got to get some stuff done. I finally unpacked my suitcases last night. 🙂

Next cover will be for A SEAL Wolf for Sale!

Have a super great Tuesday!

Love this Review for Jaguar Hunt from Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales, and Fantasy

Jaguar Hunt-300 (487x800)

David Patterson serves as a top level agent for their Jaguar-shifter species. When he discovers that his case to find and return a missing jaguar connects with Tammy Anderson’s case to find a couple of missing teens, he requests to be teamed with her. Then promptly gets himself thrown in jail. Leaving Tammy to bail him out and making a darned good first impression.

The tryst factor remains an issue throughout the entire book and believe me when I say, I wasn’t sure who to believe until the very end. Well done.

A great book. I feel that with each Jaguar shifter book, I fall more and more in love. Often I find myself comparing Ms. Spear’s jaguars to Christine Feehan’s. There are marked similarities BUT there are huge differences. Ms. Spear’s manages to keep her cats playful even in the most heated of situations. Which is perfect after all, they are cats.
My advice? Check out this book, it reads well as a stand alone, BUT I suggest you read the series, in order. Now there’s a shocker *grins*

I had to laugh at the part: “Leaving Tammy to bail him out and making a darned good first impression.”

Yep. 🙂  Which just proves to her that she really doesn’t need to be working with him. 🙂 However…that soon changes.

Can you tell I’m back???

I couldn’t share this before because I was mouseless. 🙁 I am going to get 3 just to have when I’m on trips so that I NEVER, EVER have another dead mouse when I’m traveling. 🙂

Okay, really, really off to work on some of my “have to get done or else I’m in trouble” because they are all deadline projects!!!!! That are like soon deadlines. 🙂

Have a totally terrifically great Monday!

Terry
