What to do in the New Year!

I am swamped with work, but there are some things I realize I’d neglected. My signature line! I just updated the book covers, though I need to update it again! But at least it’s not as outdated as it was. And I really need to update my website.

I was in a hot tub last night with a romantic polar bear shifter in Alaska. Okay, so not me, really. My heroine was. I was dog-sitting! All right? I’d rather have been in a hot tub with a sexy polar bear shifter.

Trying to get a shot of all four dogs looking at me and not blurring is a challenge with a phone.

I’ve got to start the process of taking them out again in shifts, feeding them, and taking them out in shifts. I’ve been putting off the inevitable while I get my blog written. We are going to have 100% rain today and tomorrow, which means lots of wet dog.

I’m off to get started on my day’s work, well, after I take care of the dogs. In the meantime, have a super, lovely day!!!

Winter Flowers Blooming!

Okay, not really. These are summer flowers still blooming! Whoever heard of a sunflower coming out in winter? And the marigolds are just as vibrant. In fact, even the milkweed are regrowing their leaves. But they will get a rude shock soon. The temps are dropping to freezing, but then up again in the 60’s. Even the honeybees were back, all over the roses yesterday, and I’ve seen more monarch butterflies and one of the yellow ones!

I’m still working on edits on Claiming the White Bear before I finish writing scenes. Moving a couple situations earlier in the story really made a mess. But I think I’ve about got it all sorted out.

Off to write! Have a great day!

Start the New Year’s Right!

Christmas is over and it’s time to begin thinking about the new year.

Drinking until late into the night? Forget that! Early to bed, early to rise…and welcome the new year in right! I’ll be puppy sitting, so there’s no sleeping all day anyway, even if I could!

So two of my cougar stories have New Year’s themes, one, at the beginning where she goes to an old ghost town looking for answers about criminal activities as she’s in law enforcement on New Year’s Eve, nothing better to do, and ends up in a gunfight and meets the cougar who will change her life forever. And the other ends with New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day, and the trouble they have to deal with before they can get on with their lives in the new year.

A new year promises so much, to undo all the bad habits (ha!), and to make new ones (uhm, good habits, not new bad habits), to make new memories, to accomplish goals that have been put off, to start all over and make this year the best, or just to plug along and do what you’ve been doing all along, only having more fun along the way.

The new year can be daunting. For me, it means the beginning of having to write more deadline books, what do I write about now that’s new and different???? More teddy bear orders. They’re stacking up. And I haven’t finished writing Claiming the White Bear. *sigh*

But it’s also a time to take a breather or two and have fun. Hopefully, no category 5 hurricanes this year. We had snow too. Really bizarre for the Houston area. But great for pictures!

So Christmas is over, we had a really lovely time, and I’m ready for spring! Have a lovely day!!! I have to write!

A Fae Day–but off to The World of Elves

 

Today has been a fae day!!!!! Which means that everything that could go wrong, could go wrong. First, I was taking out the trash and bringing in my Halloween decoration and the puppies got out. I LOVE my neighbors. One of the men tried to chase the two down, got one home, alerting me that they had sneaked out the front door when I hadn’t properly closed it. And then two other neighbors chased Max down. I walked, drove around the neighborhoods, couldn’t find him, but when I got home, Eugene Ping had him in his truck. THANK YOU! I don’t believe Max would have figured out how to get home. Dumb dog. Don’t they know that that’s where they get all their loving?????

But the fae day wasn’t just mine. When I took my car in to get an oil change, the one guy there had lost a customer’s keys, and the guy working on my car left his phone in my vehicle. Thankfully, I had stopped by Starbucks for a peppermint mocha to make myself feel better and saw his phone. I was able to swing around and return to the oil change place and drop off the phone. Had I gone to the grocery store like where I was headed next first, it would have been a real mess trying to get back to the oil change place. (Is it too evil of me to be glad that the fae don’t only mess with me???)

Anyway, so it’s been a fae day.

On the way home from the grocery store yesterday, I saw a wild red baby pig. I so wished I could have stopped the car and gotten a picture!!!! I’ve heard they are in our woods, but I had never seen one.

We were under tornado watch last night until 10 pm for Halloween. I had lots of trick-or-treaters before I took baby home to her parents and had dinner and watched Hocus Pocus with them. We had a great time. But I had to leave to go home during the brunt of the storm, 5″ of rain, could barely see the road and it was flooded, but luckily, everyone was really driving slow, couldn’t believe it. Usually, it doesn’t matter how bad the conditions, you always have someone rushing to get somewhere. At least I didn’t have to worry about kids out looking for candy.

So I’m off to work on Darkland Elf. I’ve promised it FOREVER, and it’s been on my TBA list in all my books FOREVER, so it’s about to finally be done. Then it’s back to: The Witch and the Jaguar, Woodland Fae, and Claiming the White Bear.

Okay, so here’s the deal. I’m signed up for National Novel Writing Month, but you can only list one book in there. I found on the forums a group who are like me! Yay! I couldn’t imagine I was so unique. Yes, we are all working on multiple manuscripts. And like me, we want to work on all of them. With NaNoMo, you are supposed to get at least 50K done on one. I can’t. I need to finish Darkland Fae (already at word count), write 20K on The Witch and the Warlock, 30K on Woodland Fae, and not sure on Claiming the White Bear. 🙂 So I’m working on as many projects as I can to finish some of them up this month.

I will get 50,000 words for NaNoMo, but it will be for multiple stories.

AND, I got Day of the Wolf back that I need to read over, an I have edits for Silver Town Christmas I need to go over.

Now that the dogs are home safe and sound, and I’ve run my errands, it’s time to get cracking on the books!

Hope you have an UN-Fae Day.

Cougar Magic Released!!!


Cougar-Magic-Nook.jpg

Cougar Magic

She doesn’t think she needs a hero, but he’s taking the job.

Deputy Sheriff and cougar Stryker Hill is not on duty when the sheriff asks him to check out a possible break-in of a resident’s home while they are away on a cruise. What he doesn’t expect is to find the beautiful and mysterious cougar he’d seen at a Christmas charity where he was showing his abs off as Santa Clause. But she’s got some moves to rival his own as she takes him down and he’s left wondering who she really is and how he’s going to keep her from leaving Yuma Town before he learns the truth.

Cougar shifter Nina Lamar has to protect her sister from the pharmacist who laid the blame on her for his thievery, and Nina has to help clear her sister’s name. But now Nina’s got the sexy Santa on her case, and she needs to deal with him first. She has to admit he’s just as hot as when she’d first seen him, but the guys who are after her sister, are after her too now. She to needs save them both before it’s too late. Too bad Stryker thinks she’s one of the bad guys, unless she can prove otherwise. That’s hard to do when her visions are the only proof of why she’s there in the first place. But time is running out, and she has to save her sister—nothing else matters…except the sexy deputy sure can be a hot distraction on the cold, snowy nights.

I didn’t post a blog yesterday because I was trying to get Cougar Magic ready for release and I’m working on finalizing the print book.  Just need to go over it one last time. Which meant I didn’t get any word count down on Woodland Fae for the last two days. *sigh* Oh, and iBooks isn’t listed because I’m having trouble getting hooked up with them again, like last time. I was on the phone with supervisors for hours trying to get it straightened out last time. ugh. So I’ll be trying to get that done today too.

But this is what it’s all about. I have a ton of book beginnings, and tons of finished books that need to be heavily revised (early books I wrote) and none of that matters unless they are finished and ready for readers!

I’d hoped to catch up today on writing, but with proofing the print book, probably not happening.

Off to work!!! Have a fun day!!!!! It’s time to celebrate! Well, maybe not until I resolve the issue with Apple and finish the print book, but then!!! It’s time!

Cooler Temps, Fun Walk

 

With cooler temperatures, I’ve been able to take baby on a walk, and that was nice. We even went to the grocery store yesterday. It’s been so hot that if I couldn’t go first thing, I didn’t want to. The car would be sooooo hot and take so long to cool down. But these are some pictures I took on our walk–a beautiful hibiscus, mushrooms in a bundle, and reflections in the pond, and we went a little further than we usually do.

I did get SEAL Wolf Surrender edits done this morning and turned it in! Still waiting on Silver’s beta reader edits. In the meantime, it’s back to Cougar Magic. When I flip back and forth between stories, I have to re-read them so I know where I was going with the story I’m now working on. After I’ve been immersed in another for some days, I tend to keep thinking of the hero and hero’s name from the other story. Then again, I always do have trouble with names.

I created this for A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas yesterday also.

When the wolves’ own blood betrays them, they risk their lives to find a miracle.

Wolf shifter Dr. Aidan Denali has been working day and night to find a cure for werewolves’ alarmingly sudden decline in lifespan. The key to the problem eludes him. But when Aidan grudgingly leaves his work to do some holiday shopping, he meets a remarkable she-wolf whose mysterious pack could bring him one step closer to the answer.

Dr. Holly Gray is thrilled to meet the wolf who’s been working so hard to help others. Now, it’s her turn to help him. But while their attraction is sizzling, the packs are at odds, and the danger is increasing. It’s going to take a holiday miracle for Holly and Aidan to get themselves―and their loved ones―out of this alive…

The Fae Are at It Again

I didn’t get word count yesterday, but got it on baby day instead, which is my day “off.” I spent the day working on SEAL Wolf Surrender edits. And on Silver Wolf edits instead.

Then the fae attacked with a vengeance. Well, before that. My editor sent my file, but it wouldn’t go through the night before, so she sent it yesterday morning. So after I finished edits on Silver Wolf, I sent them to another beta reader, but she’s getting garbage. I shut down my computer, made sure there were no updates needed, restarted the computer YOU ARE IN DANGER. This was from my anti-virus program. So I restart the computer again. I’m still working on SEAL edits. I was too tired to finish them tonight, and just couldn’t think at that point.

This is a picture break and then on with the story.

Not sure what the flowering plant is below and the geese were having a respite in the shade.

But while I was waiting for the computer to come back up, I went in to brush my teeth. No technical difficulties there. But when I tossed my toothbrush in the drawer, and I never do that so don’t ask why I did it this time, it vanished. I heard it land, but it didn’t have a landing-in-the-drawer sound.

My toothbrush vanished! Really, and truly. I looked in the drawer. Not in the drawer. Not on the floor. Not under the cabinet. Not in the cabinet. Not in the sink. Not on the counter. It…vanished. Honest to goodness. Now, if I were a paranormal writer, I’m sure there’s a story in this. I really don’t have to make things up. They just…happen.

Note to self: Do NOT ever toss toothbrush into drawer. It ends up in the Black Hole.

Then again, baby will be here tomorrow. Maybe she’ll find it.

And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Have a super wonderful day!!! Do you know where your toothbrush is today??? What about mine?

Wet and Wild

We ended up having a downpour yesterday when the weatherman kept saying it wouldn’t be until later, later, later, and that was supposed to be around 11 pm. This was around 1 pm. They were off by a 1.

We may be getting some more rain tomorrow and the next day from a tropical storm.

In the meantime, just remember if you’re a shifter, don’t do it when I’m out taking pictures.Image may contain: text, nature and outdoor

Have a fun day! I wrote 6,000 words yesterday, hope to get to 45,000 today! Baby will be here tomorrow and that’s the end of writing as we all know it.

Wolves and Snow Leopards

I love both. And I was very fortunate to get beautiful shots of each of these. The 2-year old emergent Arctic wolf alpha at the International Wolf Center, Ely, MN, and the snow leopard, Como Zoo, MN.

I’m working on Cougar Magic now, and I rarely capture good pictures of cougars in captivity, so I don’t have many to show. Of course one of my troubles has been that I didn’t know to change my ISO to capture faster moving critters back then. Most of the ones I saw were on the move. A few were resting so far up in the rocks, it was hard to capture good images. But maybe someday. And we couldn’t see the one at the Como Zoo at all. Exhibit, no cat.

Despite having baby for all day, and then again from 6:45 pm until 10:30 pm, I managed somehow to wrangle another 3,000 words out. I usually can’t. Shows that if I put my mind to it, AND the scenes are coming to me, I can do it. I have to say baby is very needy, wanting attention, or to be held when she’s getting sleepy, that it’s not like she’s at the age where she can sit and draw or something. But she did take 4 hours worth of naps, and I managed to get her to sleep by 8 pm last night, so I had another 2 1/2 hours to write.

Speaking of which, I’m on a forward momentum now, so off to get some more word count down. I’m at 16,000! So I’ve bypassed the number of 15,000 on Claiming the White Bear. I got stuck there, but I’ll do some brainstorming and push through that one too soon. I need to write my next fae book too and I want to finish one of the other YA vampire stories I’ve started. Not sure what my word count is on them, but they’re in the plans. And then I need to figure out what I want to write for the next wolf stories for 2020. It’s neverending, and what fun!

Have a great day!!!!! I’m excited to be running around in the cougar world creating mischief. They are in so much trouble.  Let’s see if they can get out of it on their own…
