Flowers Blooming Before Christmas & Woodland Fae is Out!

I noticed gerbera daisies blooming the day baby was here so ran out to take some pictures yesterday. The droplets of water on them are from the heavy fog we had.

Lavender lantana, gerbera daisy, yellow daylily, dianthus next to the Christmas lights, and another daisy.

The flowers don’t know it’s winter and time for them to sleep.

Baby’s here for one more day before my daughter has school break and then Grandma gets a break! Or…well, more time to write and edit.

And just released!!!

Woodland Fae

Letta is a scorpion fae, pretending to be a woodland fae, since her own kind had practically annihilated their own. She’s come of age and must leave her kind behind to make her way in the world. Taking refuge in a cave during a storm in wolf fae territory, she’s attacked by a wolf shifter fae and saves another’s life, who happens to be the pack leader’s sister. But now Letta has a new problem. The bite she’d received turns her into a wolf shifter also, but will the wolf fae pack accept her or scorn her for being one of the deadly scorpion fae if they learn the truth?

Simon is the pack leader for the Wolf Mountain pack and he’s unsure what kind of fae Letta is, not having heard of a woodland fae before. Yet he’s attracted to Letta like he’s never been to a she-wolf before. That causes dissent among some of his wolves who believe another wolf should be his mate and he must prove to his pack that he has what it takes to lead.

I’m still waiting on the link for Barnes and Noble, and I’m working on the print version and still writing Claiming the White Bear. But baby will be here momentarily, so I’ll have to put off all of this until later.

Have a lovely day!!!

Taking a Closer Look–Macro in the Garden

Macro red snapdragon, pink coneflower, lavender lantana, orange marigold, milkweed for the Monarch butterflies, radiation lantana

And a closer look at the book! I finished minimum word count, and now I have to finish the book! Not that I haven’t been working toward that all along. I can’t wait to figure out the final scenes. I’m going back in and fleshing out all the rest of the book first, finding more loose ends. I swear the fae are inserting new loose ends for me. I’m going to have to get my notebook out and begin to take notes on what needs to be tied up.

Okay, I’m just working on a couple of photos of the kids in their spider family costumes and then off to write!!!

Hope you have a spider-less day, unless it’s hero time!

Macro Shots in the Garden

Coneflower, yellow esperanza, coleus, lavender lantana, pink zinnia

I haven’t played with macro shots in a while, so thought it would be fun to give it a try!

I’m only 3,000 away from word count goal on SEAL Wolf Surrender. Annoyed with myself that I couldn’t just at least write the last 3,000, just for the minimum goal, but the story isn’t coming to me. Baby is here soon, so then the story REALLY won’t be coming to me. lol

I need to make the bad guys’ presence known early on. One is from the very beginning, so that’s good. I’ve been watching Cold Case Files, interested in seeing procedures on criminal cases, because I write romantic suspense, and the guys they’re after are criminals.

My villains are often shifters, so they take care of their own. Sending a shifter to jail when the world doesn’t know about them, won’t work. It’s fun creating a fantasy world within the real world (cougar shifters, wolf shifters, jaguar shifters, bear shifters, snow leopard shifters), though sometimes it’s just easier creating a whole fantasy world, where the characters visit the real world (as in my fae series).

All right, off to play with baby! Have a wonderful TGIF!

Is Your Life out of Control?

When baby was here, she slammed her foot on my laptop and changed my email to tiny print. Ugh. So I think I had to reset the size and then shut down. Hopefully, that corrected it.

Then today, I have had computer issues, internet issues all morning. I needed to move my big picture files from my hard drive, so trying to do that and everything is moving at SLOWER than a snail’s pace. Used CC cleaner to remove some junk, and it cleaned out all my passwords, so trying to remember them. lol

And sometimes I hit the wrong button on my camera and it brackets my pictures, which is a pain in the patootie. I think I’m taking a picture using the whole frame, but I’m not, and I cut part of the picture off that I don’t want to cut off. So then I have to figure out which button I hit and un–button it.

So that’s my story! But I did get 3,000+ words written yesterday on SEAL Wolf Surrender, and that’s the good news! I just can’t wait to finish it! Five-thousand words to go!

OMG, it’s clear out mostly, and raining. I guess that’s what they mean when they say a small percentage of rain. My neighbors across the street aren’t getting any.

Anyway, I decided to try something new. The penta flowers are big time hummingbird and butterfly attractors (yes, it is not a word, but I’m an author, so I make them up as I go), but I’ve run out of room, and another couple of flowering plants I had that the hummingbirds and butterflies love didn’t make it through the ice and snow we had. I decided to try hanging baskets of lantana and petunas right next to the patio.  If they attract the hummers and butterflies, I might get some really good shots. Or not.

And I totally confused the squirrel. I changed the order of the squirrel pictures, but WordPress wouldn’t honor the change. *sigh* So the first picture was of the squirrel in the hanging petunia basket, wondering where the seed was. The birds had the same issue. lol

But it is fun. I hope they do well. I’ve never tried them before but my mother always had beautiful baskets of hanging flowers. If nothing else, I’m going to have fun taking flower pictures for as long as they survive. And I can plant the lantana in the ground as it will come back in the spring.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Which reminds me of my writing. The only way the book is going to finish itself is if I lend a hand.

Oh, and I have two panda bear orders!

All’s Fair in Love and Wolf by Terry Spear
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Genre: Action/Adventure, Contemporary, Paranormal, Suspense/Mystery
Length: Full Length (352 pgs)
Heat Level: Spicy
Rating: 4.5 stars
Reviewed by Xeranthemum

The Silver Town wolf pack has your back

Wolf shifter Sarandon Silver’s in trouble with the law, and bounty hunter she-wolf Jenna St. James is determined to bring him in for trial.

Lucky for Sarandon, the entire Silver Town pack is ready to fight for his innocence. But until the case is solved, Jenna’s sticking to Sarandon like glue…

“Ms. Spear has a winner! The first chapter set things up kind of slow but isn’t that how a roller coaster starts? Once you reach the top, it’s a downhill ride filled with speed, chills, thrills and WhooHoos! That’s the fun of All’s Fair in Love and Wolf. Once this novel gets going it’s a great read and is nearly impossible to put down once the chase is on.

The attraction between Jenna and Sarandon started within a most unusual circumstance and I think that’s what hooked me.”

Loved the review!

Okay, it is still raining, love it! And I’m off to write!! Have a lovely day!
