Keep Your Distance and Chin Up!

I thought this was cute:

At the grocery store yesterday, they had us standing 10 feet away from each other. They were cleaning carts, the clean ones were inside the store. They had hand sanitizer they would squirt on your hands before going in and coming out. It wasn’t crowded inside and no long lines. They were limited how many went into the store. A good thing! I also finished my taxes. Yay! I still need to do my car registration for April. You can register online, yay! But you have to go in to have a car safety inspection. Boo!

Working on Red Wolf. Or trying to, but taking my morning walk in the dark before too many people are up and about and it gets too hot.

I published Vampire Redemption, but still waiting on the links for most of the sites.

Vampire Redemption

Huntress Pasha wants revenge against the vampire who had decimated her family of hunters and she’s sure she’s found her mate—a hunter who saved her and helped free her family. But he is a hunter turned vampire now and as much as she hates the vampires for what they’ve done to her and her family, she scorns any notion of settling down with one.

Zachary is in love with one hot-blooded huntress and he’ll do anything to save her and her family from the vampires who had taken them hostage. But now, he’s one of them, and he can’t come to grips with what he’s become. He’s on a mission to help Pasha eliminate the vampires who destroyed her family and hopes he will fall in battle, an honorable way to die—as a hunter eliminating rogue vampires who threaten mankind.

But just maybe being a hunter turned vampire isn’t the worst thing that can happen to him, if he can have an edge against the vampires, if only he wasn’t shunned by the huntress he has lost his heart to.

So I went to blog yesterday, and they changed everything up again. Please, leave things alone. *sigh*

Red rosebud getting ready to bloom. I love red flowers in the garden. I love purple, but red is really showy. And the butterflies and hummingbirds agree. The bees love any color. They’ll “flock” to my holly’s white flowers in spring even. But I have yellow, lavender, hot pink flowers, and still, the hummingbirds and butterflies prefer the red flowers above all else.

And, did I mention it’s showy? When I see a row of red roses or red-flowering crape myrtles or azaleas, they catch my eye more than white or any other color. I love the combination of red and purple. And some yellow makes for a pretty scene. But green evergreens help to bring it all together. In my humble opinion.

So for the last two days, I was trying to work on Vampire Redemption, Highland Wolf edits, and shipped off books to readers. I also dropped off my tax paperwork, and picked up plants and dirt, the fun part of the day!

Image may contain: plant, flower, table, nature, outdoor and indoor

I picked up red pentas, a hummingbird and butterfly magnet, and a pink hibiscus, they didn’t have red, so I got pink for my granddaughter because that is her favorite color, and a couple of citronella plants. Now, they said they stave off mosquitoes. NOT true. They have to have their leaves crushed to do that. False advertising!

Okay, so I’m working of vampire redemption edits this morning, have 1 more scene to write. I need to start proofing Highland Wolf and then send it off. And I need to ship another 30 books or so today. Oh, and plant!!!

I planted 20 of the pentas last night, a bunch of flower seeds, have more, and I need to plant the hibiscus and some salvia seeds.

Have a fun day! Mine is happily busy. No little one. Spring Break. Yay, for Grandma! Which means I really have to get stuff done with the unexpected extra time on my hands. Yay!

Do Not Disturb!

Right! If you’re reading, writing, or doing the taxes, you need this sign. Correct?

Or if you have edits and material requests coming in for two different books when you’re trying to finish up a book in process! I finally got minimum word count on Highland Wolf but need to finish it. And little one is coming in a few minutes, so forget getting anything done. *sigh*

It was 73 yesterday, 33 this morning. Ugh. No wonder we all get sick. I spent the day digging up ferns that volunteered along my pavers. I moved them against the fence. They’re from the native woods and just popped up in my flower border, and I love ferns!! I’ve never been able to grow them before, so I’m excited to have my own little woodland scene, if they survive the move.

Okay, I’m off to get ready for little one.

Have a super, undisturbed day!

You Had Me at Wolf Released!!!!!

We’re back in Silver Town for a whole new adventure! This time, it’s about the Wolf brothers and their sisters who have established the new ski lodge and restaurant for guests in town. Blake Wolff is having one of those days. You know the kind. When your dog runs off and the snowblower isn’t working right and you slip and fall on ice. Yep, it’s just…one…of…those…days. You have to take pity on the wolf and just want to give him a big hug. At least that’s what Nicole Grayson tells herself when she just does that and she doesn’t know the wolf from Adam.

Hope you love the new series! It’s in audio book too! Imagine the fun you could have just listening to the adventure hands free while you’re taking a walk with him, or shoveling snow, or gardening.

Publisher Description

First in a thrilling new series from USA Today bestseller Terry Spear featuring the hot, powerful Wolff brothers!

A wolf on a mission needs a partner…even if it’s only for one date… 

The hot, powerful Wolff brothers have moved to the outskirts of Silver Town and opened a ski lodge. They’ve always wanted to live in a wolf-controlled area, and now they have their chance. They’re settling in for a quiet winter, when their lives suddenly become way more exciting than they’d ever planned.

Private Investigator and gray wolf shifter Nicole Grayson is hot on the trail of a dangerous criminal hiding out at the ski lodge when her partner takes ill and must leave her to pursue the mission alone. Blake Wolff steps in—he can’t resist the allure of this brilliant and focused she-wolf whose presence awakens a long dormant yearning in his heart.

As pursuit of their quarry heats up, Blake has a mission of his own…to convince Josie that there’s more to life than work…and that she’s his perfect mate.

OH, and one last thing. For those of you who have already purchased the print books for the wolf series, which are now becoming 10th anniversary releases and you still want to read the novellas but not buy the new edition with their new hot covers–my editor said we’d put them in a standalone book after all of them have been released.

I Love My Readers!

Jan Nakutis: “When I was 40 I had this tattoo done on my ankle with the plan that when I was old and in my rocking chair I could look down and still feel like I could howl at the moon. Well, I’m 71 now, not anywhere near a rocking chair and I’m still howling at the moon 🌕.

All your books help keep me that way. “

Lizzy LaBare: “I honestly can’t tell you which series I enjoyed more… I am leaning towards the werewolves. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I am still trying to get over the fact that my dream man/wolf lives in another woman’s head…lol”

I asked my readers if I could share their quotes on my blog today. It’s all about readers. They make my day!

Thanks to my blog readers and my book readers for making my year!

I am only 600 words behind today after being 11,000 words behind, so hope to finish that up along with my 2,000 words, and more, if I can come up with some ideas. I had thoughts last night when I was trying to sleep at 3 a.m. Now, if I could only remember them!

Have a wonderful, magical day and believe in your dreams!

YOU Had ME at WOLF

Loved these reviews!

YOU HAD ME AT WOLF did just that – it had me. I am a fan of author Terry Spear and haven’t read anything from her that is a downer. Her stories are always upbeat, family-oriented (the family might be a pack of shifters but it’s family), with a romance that will leave you sighing and fanning yourself. ~Annetta Sweetko, Fresh Fiction Reviews

A review from Amber on BookBub!


You Had Me at Wolf is a fun and entertaining paranormal cozy mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderfully layered plot that left me completely captivated and utterly enthralled. There was never a dull moment, and I loved the non-stop action and mystery. I also enjoyed the personal growth and action between our memorable characters. They kept things warmed up and constantly on edge as their relationship deepened and the story unfolded. What exciting fun!

I finished edits on the novella last night. I’m down from 11,000 to 8,000 being behind on Highland Wolf. I want to get my word count today and then re-read the novella and turn it in. So I won’t be able to whittle down my word count on Highland Wolf. Had to do another promotional blog for You Had Me at Wolf.

I remember a time a decade ago, when I would be so eagerly awaiting a release because it was all I had on my plate. Now, I feel, hasn’t that been published already??? Like a year ago, when I wrote it? Sometimes, I feel like I live in a time warp. When I have to do a promotional blog, I’m like, wait a minute, about which book? I’ll be getting Joy to the Wolves back for edits soon, and with working on two more books, and then doing the new release stuff for yet another book, no wonder it gets confusing. Which heroine/hero was in which book?

Have a super day. I’ve got to get going!!!

Courtship in Any Form

The Merman and the Mermaid

The shark picture is mine. The mermaid and mermen from DAZ3D, the porpoise and some of the fish from pixelsquid. The merfolk are courting and everyone has to get in on the act. Do you see Dory and Nemo in the picture? I had to add them for my granddaughter. First, I had Dory, and immediately she asked where Nemo was.

When I first started blogging years ago, I thought I had to do this so seriously, so perfectly, so properly. Then I became me. Then the blog wasn’t a chore. I can be silly, or serious, or me.

But first an announcement, one of my fans sent me the link to one of my books being free, so grab it now if you don’t already have it. I have no idea how long it will be free: https://www.amazon.com/Alls-Fair-Love-Wolf-Silver/dp/1492655813

Now that my public service announcement is over with, I woke this morning thinking, ohmigod, what day is it? Tuesday? I didn’t get any writing done, hardly and little one will be here tomorrow. Wait, no, it can’t be. Whew, it’s Sunday.

Maybe Groundhound Day is messing with me.

No, the Fae. Yesterday in the middle of the day, do you know what I heard? The dishwasher running. All. On. Its. Own. I ran over, touched it, it was vibrating, and then…it stopped. The Fae are DEFINITELY trying to get my attention.

Alright, already. I’ll write another of your books. But after….

So yesterday, I wrote 2,000 words on Wolf in Need. It will be the new novella in the 10th Anniversary of Wolf Fever. Yay!!

Only managed about 500 on Highland Wolf. Hopefully I’ll do better on it today. I think that’s why I woke up thinking I hadn’t done enough on my 4 days “off,” that means my 4 days of writing.

I’ve been cutting back the dead growth on pentas and other plants and the irises had to be nipped back. Still have to do that with plants out front today. The pentas are supposed to be only annuals. But some are still flowering. So I’m going to see if they come back this year. If not, I’ll just pick up some new ones. They’re the only annuals I plant, usually. I mainly just plant perennials that will come back every year.

Okay, I’m off and editing on Highland Wolf. And have to think of where to go next on both that and Wolf in Need for today.

Have a beautiful Sunday! It’s Sunday, yay! Not Tuesday!

Four Days to Write–No Interruptions-Hopefully

Gone Fishing

The reason I haven’t gotten word count on Highland Wolf is because I have had little one all weekend long, and then Wed and Friday. I did write on Vampire Redemption, and it’s almost done, so it’s not like I haven’t been working on a story. But it’s not the deadline book.

If I’d had more of an idea of what to write, I would have gotten somewhere with Highland Wolf, but being sick and then with distractions, I couldn’t concentrate. Now, I have to get back to it with heart and soul. So I’m off to work on it for the next 4 days before little one is back and I hope to catch up on word count and surpass it. I have two more scenes I want to write on Vampire Redemption, but I’ll do those after I get caught up on Highland Wolf. And then it will be done.

I also want to weed and I’m creating 3 composites for a neighbor’s granddaughter.

Okay, off to write!

Have a gloriously wonderful day!

Yes, Distractions, but…

Lionesses at the Houston Zoo

So yesterday, I was in the zone for writing Vampire Redemption, but I’m still sick, at least in the morning it was really bad and I’ve nearly got 3,000 words. Nothing is stopping me.

Then my daughter calls. “Are you well enough to go shopping at garden centers?”

OMG yes. I mean, I was feeling better by then, and she read about companion plants to me that will help keep the bugs off the ones you want to keep bug free, while we kept throwing her corgis outside. Both have diarrhea now, and she was doing what I was doing, cleaning out crates, bedding, floors. I’m so glad they’re home. lol

They love me though and were eager to see me again, after I had them Friday through Sunday. Little one was at daycare. So my daughter and I had lunch out, then went to Home Depot and Lowes. I picked up some bark mulch and flower seeds. One of my neighbors calls me the flower lady. Some call me the bear lady. Others the wolf lady. lol

No photo description available.

So despite having lunch out, picked up some bark mulch and a few flower seeds, I managed to write 4,000 words on Vampire Redemption. I wanted to do more, but I was sick again in the evening and so tired from not sleeping that I went to bed early.

I’m feeling better this morning, but have a dental appointment. Important, of course, but a necessary evil.

I’m off to write before I have to leave. Must get word count on Highland Wolf today. I’m nearly done with Vampire Redemption, which is why I could write so much on it yesterday. Yay!!

I’ll probably let it sit once it’s done and read it over a little later to make sure I didn’t leave loose ends in the story. And then I’ll try and write a jaguar novella while I’m working on Highland Wolf.

Have a super, fun day!!! I’m off to write!

Delicate, but Hardy Little Monarch

It’s been a mild winter this year, giving the monarchs that wrapped themselves in their cocoons late a better chance at survival. This one I saw a couple of days ago, another, yesterday. I do have flowers they can sip the nectar from, so I hope that keeps them going.

I have a head cold and my head was splitting in two, my teeth all aching and feeling like they needed to be pulled. I’m bad about taking medicine for anything, figuring it will go away. But I was trying to concentrate on writing Highland Wolf and proofing the last 19 chapters of Night of the Billionaire Wolf and my head was hurting too much. I’d taken allergy medicines, but nothing was touching the pain. I finally went looking for something for my head and I found kid’s liquid tylenol, and other kids’ liquid medicines. Where are Grandma’s medicines when she needs them? lol

I finished proofing Night of the Billionaire Wolf and sent it off. Yay! So I’m back to writing on both Highland Wolf and the vampire book today.

Hope you are having a super fun day!
