Excerpt: ‘SEAL Wolf Hunting’ by Terry Spear
Terry Spear joins us to share an excerpt from her new SEAL Wolf Hunting, book 16 in her Heart of the Wolf series.
About the book (courtesy of Sourcebooks Casablanca):
Hottest of the hot on the Navy SEAL wolf team.
Paul Cunningham has eluded many traps in his long career as a Navy SEAL, but there’s no way out of this one. On a rare visit home, he gets “volunteered” for a local charity bachelor auction, and the community is counting on him. Then he discovers that the sexy she-wolf with the winning ticket is Lori Greypaw—the one woman he could never resist. And she has plans for Paul that go way beyond a simple date. For the first time in his bachelor life, this alpha wolf SEAL is going to have to prove his worth…
Terry sets the scene for us …
Okay, I’m behind on word count. First, I’ve been writing 5,000 a day, until party day, and I left that day free. I wrote a 1,000 that day, then yesterday was supposed to be my 5,000 day, but I only wrote 1,000. 🙁 I spent the day getting contest wins to ship and responding to a million different comments. It’s great exposure, and I have to say I am sending 4 of my Heart of the Wolf, first book in the series, to 4 brand new Heart of the Wolf Series books and one of my winners got excited about my Highland medieval series, so that was so much fun.
What’s funny is in the beginning, I had no series name. Then everyone kept asking me what it was. I didn’t realize I was going to have such a long-running series. Soooo, my fans kept calling it the Heart of the Wolf Series, and that stuck. So with Jaguar, I just said make it Heart of the Jaguar Series, and then did the same with my Cougar series. 🙂
I have to ship all the books and autograph books at the two stores that carry them today. So I won’t be able to get as much word count today either. And, I just got in first line edits on She-Wolf Leader of the Pack, so those have to take priority. *sigh*
And I’m behind on exercising. 🙁 I’ve been walking 5 miles a day, mostly stationary so I can still be working at home. But I’ve only been walking 1-2 miles with trying to write. *double sigh*
So there went all my goals. But you see, it’s not forever. And revising goals is just fine too. By writing so much in a few days, I have gotten further than I thought I would. I’m at 57,000 and need 23,000. So really getting close. And yesterday I was also brainstorming some ideas for the end of the book, jotted down a bunch of ideas, so see? I was working on the book. Just not with word count. And that’s important too.
I want to pitch White Wolf Christmas for 2017. I need to get caught up with the Legend of the White Wolf pack. They haven’t had their story told since that one came out as book 4. I need to write another jaguar book to keep the series going, but not sure who needs their story told next. Maybe someone totally different. I’m thinking of a trip to Hawaii.
For my characters. Been their twice, beautiful. Seems like the perfect landscape for a couple of jaguar shifters.
My internet is really slow this morning, so driving me crazy.
Anyway, I still have to write the Jaguar Christmas story by November, so not like I don’t still have books to write. 🙂
Okay, off to get my day started. If you have picked up SEAL Wolf Hunting and have read it and loved it, I would love a review on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I never think to mention it, but that would be great!
Have a super wonderful day! Off to do something I’m supposed to be doing now!
