Book Sets and Such!

Silence of the Wolf–5 Stars!! Bitten by Books: “The mystery of Elizabeth’s parents’ death is woven throughout the story, and I love a good mystery. Though Elizabeth is a woman alone, she has a deep desire to be part of a pack, but is afraid when Tom first makes the offer. Tom is a strong and capable leader, a definite alpha, and is certain that he wants Elizabeth to be his mate. When Elizabeth’s room is broken into and her belongings stolen, Tom is there to protect her.

I liked seeing Elizabeth’s courage in the face of a kidnapping and her determination to discover who was responsible for the murder of her parents. Silence of the Wolf is a story that easily captured my interest, and I am curious to see what happens next for the Silver Town residents.” Mary http://bittenbybooks.com/silence-of-the-wolf-by-terry-spear/

And yes, there’s more: A Silver Wolf Christmas, Oct 2015.

I am behind!!! On my writing on A SEAL Wolf for Sale. We had storms yesterday and I had to get off my computer.

Sudden Storms Texas (640x427)

And I have some things coming up: A book set with a bunch of authors who have won all kinds of awards, three of which are USA Today Bestselling authors, including me! More adult paranormal and fantasy books. And another book set with strictly YA faery stories. I think both of them will be a lot of fun. We’re working on the details for both right now, and I have two conferences coming up that we’re working together to come up with some things.

I love authors! In most businesses, we would be considered competition. But with authors, we unite to work together to help each other out and that’s really a wonderful concept. I’ve been asked a million times to join in book sets with other authors, and I’ve said no because I’m swamped with other stuff going on all the time. But I finally said yes to these two projects–one because I’m fascinated with these award-winning authors, and the other, because it’s all the world of fae, and I think it’s really important to have a themed box set to help promote the same.

So in the coming weeks when I have sales links, I’ll share them here. 🙂

I just also sent the narrator the following two books to narrate:

Scepter of Salvation

She must retrieve the scepter or the kingdom is lost…

Mage of Monrovia

She wanted to be a school trained mage…but everything stands in her way.

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia, Book 2


An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.

Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.

Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.

And that’s the beginning of the trouble.

First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia,<br />                                     Book 2 - Terry Spear

I still need to write the third book!

But in the meantime, I’m off to work on A SEAL Wolf for Sale.

Hope you have a grand Monday! It’s cloudy with a chance of storms? Not sure. I probably should look and see. Or better yet, I should just write!

Green is the Life-Giver

Think of it. It’s cool, the trees of the rainforests of the world, giving us so much of the oxygen we breathe and the plants we use for medicines, even cancer medicines. In the rainforests or jungles, you can find every shade of green from lightest to darkest, from yellows to emeralds to grays. Emerald, my birthstone, my favorite gemstone. Oh, sure, diamonds are a girl’s best friend (besides Highland hunks, cannot forget them), but emeralds are grand.

The cover artist who did this cover reflected the green of the jungle to give the whole picture a green look–as he’s in the rainforest of Belize, just like where some of our last wild jaguars roam freely.

Green has a soothing effect as in this cover. It ties us to the earth, reminds us of rebirth, the new spring leaves, the new green grasses. Freshly mowed grass smells green, doesn’t it? Many of our vegetables are green, the darker the green, the better for us.

Though I usually think of parrots in colors other than green feathers, here are a couple at Moody Gardens displaying their many shades of green feathers from yellow to neon green.

And of course Christmas means red and green.

Shadow Elf

She’s not supposed to be abandoned on the elves’ planet.

If I could, I would turn all the deserts of the world green.

And here are some of the clan bears I’ve made. Note: many Scottish clans have green and blue, as the significant colors in their tartan.

Even with the fall colors, Scotland was green.

And there you have it. Green is calming, makes a building feel tethered to the land when surrounded by green. It gives shade in the hot, hot sun. It gives us oxygen and breaks up the blandness of a cement city, but green has it’s darker side too. Stormy green skies, beware. Don’t eat food that has green stuff growing on it! Green at the gills means you’re sick. Green with envy, well, you’re envious. Green means money.

But mostly for me, it’s a serene color that provides a tranquility–like walking through a green forest on a hot summer’s day. Or playing in the grass with a puppy. Or counting all those green dollars in your wallet. 🙂

Have a lovely green day–well, in the spring. 🙂  Do you like green?

Also, I’m here today talking about: My Year is Booked!
