My daughter and I went swimming for 45 mins and then went hiking for 2 miles in the 100 degree heat and humidity yesterday. I took a lot of pictures of dragonflies, swamps, the lake, and herons. Hopefully some of the pictures turned out and I’ll share them. One of a green and blue dragon is phenomenal, and I’ll share it tomorrow.
But I finished Billionaire and gave it to my beta readers. I got edits back from my editor on You Had Me at Wolf (Wolff Brother story), and so I have to get those done by Monday. And I was reading Seduced by the Wolf, to recall the characters in that book because I have to add a novella at the end for the 10th Anniversary Edition. And I have to write the Christmas novel about the same pack, so I figured it would help to read that story since I wrote it 10 years ago.
So as soon as I finish the edits on the other book, I’ll jump on the Red Wolf novella. Think I’ll call it Hunting the Red Wolf. And I think it will be about Cassie’s sister who learns in Seduced by the Wolf that her cousin Aimee made it out okay, when their families perished. So I’m thinking that Rhoda, her twin sister did too, and this will be her story.
Anyway, I’m off to swim with the kids and granddaughter and then get back to work! Hope you have a great weekend!!
I’ve been up forever and need to get to work, but first, I had to shut down my computer because my internet wouldn’t connect. Then I was grooming Tanner while waiting for it to restart, and once I have the poor puppy in my lap and I’m combing him out, there’s no stopping me. He’s good natured about it though.
Okay, I’m off to write. Time is running away from me and the kids asked my to take care of my granddaughter tomorrow while they play board games. That shoots a lot of writing down. I’m up to 20K on the white wolf novella though. I need to finish it up!!
Have a super, duper day! Mine is going to be great! Once I get it started.
Beauty is all around us. We just have to pause, look, and see.
I wrote 2,500 words on the novella. I’m trying to finish it so I can get back to the novel, but I have baby here today. But I’ll try to get 1,000 today. We’ll be watering, but I’m going to try to get her in her swimsuit this time. She was so silly, running through the hose and getting soaked. It was hot, and she had a blast.
She’s due here shortly. Now, if only she’ll take a nap today!
Or else! My daughter asked me to watch baby while she has a patio quote extension done. I planned to run errands first thing, so before everything opened, I was playing with a wolf picture I took. Was that doing my work first? No…..
I did get caught up on word count yesterday, but now….
Pictures I took in Minnesota. Got to run! Have a great one!!!
Tile men are here so excited to see their progress. In the meantime, I’m working on Rainbow Bear for an order, and Phantom Fae, and just created this video of Taylors Falls Paddle Wheeler trip on the St Croix. Beautiful fall colors and it was fun seeing the canoeists, the other paddle wheeler, Canada geese, and rock climbers, but we had a special treat with the firemen doing practice rescues across the St Croix. When we returned, they were doing another.
When Donna took me to the Apple Farm, the pumpkin patch was closed. But they actually have a cool cornfield maze there that I would have loved to have gone through. It was also closed the day we were able to drop by.

More on the apple farm tomorrow. Okay, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late. Got to get to work on editing A SEAL Wolf Hunting, so off to my bear cave!
Guthrie MacNeill, financial advisor for his clan and werewolf pack, is at his wit’s end when the pack leader’s mate hires a gorgeous party planner to bring holiday cheer to the castle. Guthrie’s wildly attracted to Calla, except he can’t reconcile the fact that his job is to save the clan’s money, and hers seems to be to spend it.
