A Series of Coincidences or Something More?

Yesterday morning it was colder than I thought, but not cold enough to wear a full sweater, so I put on one I never wear that has three-quarter length sleeves. It’s a pretty shade of purple, but I have nothing to wear with it so I haven’t worn it for years and years. Usually I’ll put something like that on, take it off and wear something else. But I didn’t. Which isn’t like me at all.

So when I went to the post office, a UPS truck was parked across several parking spaces and I couldn’t get close. It was about to rain and I had a big box to ship for an item I had bought that wouldn’t work, so I parked by a pet supply shop that’s new but I never go into. I go to a family-run one or Walmart for pet supplies because the big store is too expensive.

After I dropped off the box, I headed back to my car, and the thought popped in my mind that the pet store might have a better pooper scooper than I picked up at Walmart. I didn’t find any, but then I saw collars and when I took the dogs in for their shots last week, I realized Max’s collar was way too tiny. He’d had it since he was a puppy. So despite normally picking up a collar at Walmart, that probably would have been less expensive, I found the least expensive one I could at the pet store and took it to the checkout.

The lady at the checkout counter tells me she loves my sweater. I figured she meant the pretty shade of purple. “The dragonflies,” she said.

They’re rhinestone and I hadn’t even noticed them when I put the sweater on. They’re more subdued. Like I said, it had been years since I’d worn it. “Oh, yes, I love dragonflies,” I said. (And purple!)

The woman was about thirty and she said, “My sister just died a couple of days ago.”

“Oh, I’m so sorry.” The comment was so out of the blue, I was kind of taken aback.

“She loved dragonflies. When my little boy saw a dragonfly yesterday, he said that his aunt was visiting them.”

“Oh.” And then it dawned on me. All the strange coincidences: buying new merchandise that wouldn’t work, deciding to take it back to the store before it poured rain, wearing a sweater I haven’t worn in years and years, being thwarted by the UPS truck so I had to park next to the new pet store I never thought I’d go into. Not finding the item I was thinking about buying there, but remembering another I needed to get, though I normally wouldn’t have bought it there. And then meeting the lady at the checkout counter whose sister had so recently died, who loved dragonflies and her little nephew saying he knew she was sending a message to them that she was with them whenever they saw one .

Rhinestones are actually crystal clear and these are very small.

And here I am with a sweater covered in them. Coincidence? Or was I guided to cheer up the clerk a little, a message to her sister that she was still there for her? The lady said she was telling her son when she got home that a lady wearing a dragonfly sweater came to see her, which would undoubtedly cheer her son too.

Coincidence? Or something more?

Okay, I’ve been bouncing my granddaughter on my knee, trying to write this, now off to feed her breakfast.

You never know when or how you might brighten someone’s day, but what a great way to start a day!

Hope yours is great!

The Devil’s Messenger–Part 1, A True WWII Story

bend in the road in fog (640x479)

The Devil’s Messenger

by Terry Spear

Sixteen-year-old, airman Staff Sergeant Walter Wilde studied the brown paper-wrapped parcel from his mother as he sat stiff-legged on his bunk bed in Snetterton Heath, England while B-25s roared overhead. The barracks were nothing more than Quonset huts–buildings made of corrugated sheet metal with no insulation or covering on the inside. A small coal stove in the middle of the building crackled away as it provided the only heat.

“Hey, Wilde,” another staff sergeant said, as he punched him in the shoulder. “You’ve been eyeballing that package from home for over an hour already. Let us have a look-see.”

Walter touched the string criss-crossed binding, the package dated, October 4, 1943, from his hometown of Seattle, Washington. The big man stepped over to the bunk and peered down at the mail. “Come on, Wilde. Everyone else has shown off their packages from home. Maybe it’s some homemade cookies you can share with the rest of your good buddies here.”

“Yeah, besides,” another crewman said, “if you don’t hurry, we may be called up for another mission before you get the chance.” He handed Walter a knife.

“By the time he ever opens the package,” the first said, “the war will have ended.”

Taking a deep breath, Walter sliced the knife through the string, hoping his mother wouldn’t have sent something embarrassing. Not once had she sent him anything the whole time he’d been in combat. He ripped the package open. Inside, he found an Ouija board. He shook his head, relieved it wasn’t something really awful. “Nothing good to eat.”

One of the crewman grabbed up the Ouija board and smiled. “Come on, let’s play a game.”

Another held up the cards he was playing at a game of poker. “Play a man’s game. That’s kid’s stuff.”

Another shook his head. “This isn’t kid’s stuff –it’s not something you should mess with. Get rid of the thing, Wilde. It’s the devil’s messenger.” His voice was shadowed with concern.

“Don’t listen to him. He’s just superstitious!” The airman laid the board on a table, then pulled up a chair. Walter sat on the edge of his bed across from him to play the game.

After a moment, the board seemed to move on its own. “You did that,” he accused. Walter wasn’t superstitious normally, but the crewman’s words had his skin crawling.

“No,” the airman responded as he held his hands up in the air. “Scout’s honor.”

“You were never a Scout!” one of the poker players retorted as he threw a pillow at him. The pillow slid across the table, knocking the Ouija board to the floor. Walter looked down at the board and could have sworn he saw it move again.

This is based on a true story.

My dad had numerous near-death experiences from the time he was three-year’s old. So by the time he was sixteen, signing up to fight the war illegally, he was a pro at living through whatever danger life threw at him. We swore a Guardian Angel watched over him until his death at 74 years of age.

I don’t believe the Ouija board is the devil’s messenger, and yet…who really knows.
What do you think about Ouija boards? Have you played one? Anything spooky ever happen?
Part 2 tomorrow…

Stand Alone Titles vs Series

When I start a book, it’s standalone.  My wolf series started with Heart of the Wolf. I LOVED writing about wolves as shifters based on real wolves, but with romance and adventure, mystery and humor, and all that good stuff. Now, I wrote Heart of the Wolf, loving it, but when we write, trying to get a book published, that’s another story. However, publishers aren’t looking for standalone titles. They can’t build readership that way. And authors need readership. But if we can’t sell the first book in a “series,” why write a series of unsaleable books?

I was determined to sell a wolf book though, because I loved the idea. So I started writing Destiny of the Wolf.  They’re different wolf packs, same world, but don’t meet. So I solved the problem with writing a series that I couldn’t sell, sold Heart of the Wolf, and then added a mystery wolf who is in the first 4 standalone wolf titles. You see, I never knew if my publisher would keep buying the wolf tales.

I like standalone series myself. I like to finish a book and know it’s finished, and I love reading about characters I loved in the other stories who now get stories of their own. The same with my readers. I think I’ll write a story, some will like it, and the book won’t catch on, but I don’t intend to write more of them, even if I love the story. Then I get so many requests for more, I have to write them. And I love it.

In the books featured below, this is a series within a series. Again, who knew it would happen? Not me. But my first book about the Navy SEAL wolves was To Tempt The Wolf. Then A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing, A SEAL Wolf Christmas, and next year, SEAL Wolf Hunting.

Again, it’s like I had more characters that came to life and needed their own story. I read a blog where an author doesn’t like writing series. Granted, they take more effort. We have to remember details from earlier books, and if you have so many series going at the same time as I do, that can be a real challenge. But I want to write for my readers. And if that means I write about characters that readers have fallen in love with, I’ll do it. Case in point in the SEAL stories. Hunter, in To Tempt the Wolf, has a very annoying sister. But so many of my readers wanted to see her story, I had to write it. And A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing was born. Everyone wanted to see who could tame his sister. I had a ball, and that was my 9th book and it made USA Today Bestseller.

To Tempt the Wolf

To Tempt the Wolf: His love has the power to transform… or destroy…

A SEAL Wolf Christmas

A Christmas paranormal romance with the hot combination of a sexy Navy SEAL hero with werewolves, from USA Today bestselling author Terry Spear.

So I write standalone titles every time. Truly. But sometimes, oftentimes, they turn into series. 🙂 <3

What about you? Do you enjoy reading: Standalone titles? Standalone Series? Cliffhanger Series where you have to read them in order or you’re totally lost?

Have a great Tuesday! I finished writing Phantom Fae and now am working on edits! 🙂

In with a New Era…Changing Names

I had two teen books that were under a pen name, because I didn’t want readers to get confused as to which were teen books and which were adult. BUT, teens were reading my adult books and adults were reading my teen books, and some didn’t know about the other. So when I began writing teen books after those two, I used my Spear name and I vowed that when I got my rights back to these two, I’d change them (The Vampire…In My Dreams, and Deidre’s Secret. I also had Ghostly Liaisons under my pen name, but the publisher closed their teen line a month before the book’s release, though it’s still showing up on Amazon as coming soon). I feel I’m ushering in a new era.
It is now available on everything but Nook, coming soon. I also will be working on the print version next.  I’ve thought about audiobook, but sales are really slow on some titles, and we have to put out quite a bit of money to produce them. You can do it with no money paid, then share royalties 50/50 with the narrator, but I’m the ultimate optimist, and so like with one author who did that and sold a million copies, she was paying the narrator all that money for seven years for a few hours work, when it can take the author months to write the book, the costs of editing it, making the cover, and all the promo we do, etc.
Not that I’d ever sell a million copies of any of my audiobooks, but you know, it’s a gamble. We NEVER know when a book will become a hit. Never. And that means being in the red on lots and lots of audiobooks for months and months and years. I have 21 audiobooks out now, 6 more in process.  And of those, only two are in the black, and two more will be shortly–a few months. The others? Years, at the rate they’re going. We just don’t earn hardly enough on the sales we do make, and sales aren’t as high anyway for audiobooks as they are for other versions of the books. And yet, some of the big hitters say it’s important to have your books in every format there is.
If I had unlimited money, I’d just do it. 🙂  So I’m waffling. Indecisive. 🙂 Don’t you hate it when you’re that way?
Love bites when a seventeen-year-old vampire and witch tangle.

A A Kindle Cover The Vampire in My Dreams 11072014 copy

Proving a guy is a vampire for the glory it will bring seemed like a good idea.  At the time.  Until he needs Marissa Lakeland’s help to fight the vampire who made him the way he is.  No problem. She’s a witch.  Witches can handle it.  But vampires don’t exist, and there’s nothing in a witch’s training that deals with a creature that doesn’t exist.  So using her wits, she’ll manage, right?  If the creature of the night doesn’t get her first.  As a centuries-old vamp, Lynetta doesn’t lose ever, and she doesn’t intend to now.



So I’m having the last of the windows replaced out front, right before Thanksgiving. I’m glad I’m doing this piecemeal. What a mess everything is again and I just had cleaned up. Hopefully, they’ll get everything done today, and I can begin to really clean and decorate for the holidays.
I don’t do a lot of Thanksgiving decorations because lately, I’ve been visiting my son or my daughter for Thanksgiving. Talk about ushering in a new era. In the past, I thought I’d always be making the turkey at my home. 🙂  I’ll show off more later. I have metals turkeys and a wooden turkey. Don’t remember when I got some of these things, but it’s fun having something that’s unique.

I finished proofing both The Vampire…In My Dreams and Kiss of the Vampire. Still working with the beta reader on Call of the Cougar. And that means it’s time for me to get back to Phantom Fae, and that means I’m back to having word count goals.

I also had only one bear left to make, a Dragon Bear, but now have 2 more Steampunk Bears to make. 🙂 So trying to get those done before the kids come in next weekend.

Have a super great Sunday!

Tinsel Bear & Another Giveaway!

Tinsel Bear

I made this for a requested bear order for a small bear, now have one for a large bear, but was excited to learn a new “sewing” technique. Creating an eyelet-decorated vest for the Steampunk Bears. I have 7 orders for them, so have been working on the bears and the vests.  So I got the eyelets, and the eyelet clamp to add them and read the directions and was clueless. Tried a number of things, and finally gave up and looked it up on Youtube for a video demonstration. Within seconds, I had my first eyelet-decorated vest. 🙂 <3

I do Google searches all the time to figure out how to do something that’s escaping me, so why not for something like that? And it worked! Love the Internet.

Anyway, there’s her eyelet-decorated vest. She still needs her hat and this bear is sold. 🙂 <3 Working on 7 more. They’re all a little different from one another and when I have them finished, I’ll show them off.

In the meantime, I’m working hard to read through the rest of A Silver Wolf Christmas. I’m having trouble with saving. I save and go back and find that my edited work HASN’T saved. And I’m having to revise sections I know I changed. So not sure what’s up with that.

And I have another bear to make that is a really unusual fur. A customer behind me at the fabric store asked me what I was going to do with that??? And I said, “Make a bear.” I think it will be cute, but I never know for sure until I actually create the bear. So far, I have only had a couple of “ugly” bears by taking a risk. The fur was curly and the fabric too stretchy. So it wouldn’t hold it’s shape when stuffing. I say they were ugly, but they actually turned out cute, but I gave them away as freebies.

So along with this fun getting ready to party with the celebration for our box set release, I’m giving away another ebook. This one is for a Highlander medieval book (not a wolf book, I don’t have ecopies of those). If you’ve only read my wolf books and would like to read a Highland medieval book, tell me why and a lucky winner will win a copy. I can only give a copy of Highland Rake, Taming the Wild Highlander, The Highlander or Her Highland Hero. The first two books: Winning the Highlander and The Accidental Highlander are in a box set, two for the price of one, and it’s with a publisher. So I can’t give copies of it away.

HighlandersBundle 500x750

Highlander Box Set–$3.99, Two Books for Price of One

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Terry Spear, comes the long-awaited bundle of her popular two-book Highlander romance series—Winning the Highlander’s Heart and The Accidental Highland Here.


Lady Anice vows to flee the amorous advances of King Henry I and return to her home in the Highlands where she hopes to find a laird to wed. She soon discovers her staff has vanished. Premonitions of imminent danger warn her of foul play, and she is certain she is cursed when it comes to marriage.

The king orders the Highlander Laird Malcolm MacNeill, who is seeking an English bride, to provide the lass safe escort and learn what has become of her staff. Escorting her home safely proves a dangerous trial in and of itself and Malcolm has difficulty keeping his heart out of the matter. When the king wishes Lady Anice be wed to one of his loyal barons, the issue is further complicated. Losing his heart to the lass means Malcolm could very well lose his head.


Lady Eilis Dunbarton’s life undergoes a drastic change with the death of her cousin, Agnes. Now she’s faced with the disagreeable prospect of marrying the man who was to be her cousin’s husband. Not by a change of contract, though. Instead, by deceit—pretending to be her cousin. But if her husband-to-be discovers she’s not really Agnes, her life is forfeit. So what choice does Eilis have but to flee?

When Laird James MacNeill’s clan rescues a half-drowned lass from the sea, there is speculation she is of the enemy clan, especially since she doesn’t remember her own name. James is immediately enticed with the lady, but his focus must remain on finding the proper bride. For if he does not wed soon, he must give up his holdings to one of his younger brothers. Focus slips away with each day Eilis is close, and James finds himself contemplating the thought of taking her to wife without knowing her true identity.

But how dangerous would the end result be? And what will happen if Eilis’s husband-to-be comes looking for her only to find her in the arms of another man?

Morning Pictures–and the feel of the Paranormal

I “finished” writing A Silver Wolf Christmas, which means I’m still working on revisions, but it’s done! And so I worked on bears, still have about 20 to go but here is a picture of the 9 headless bears! They’re stuffed, and some of the arms and legs are closed. I’ll finish closing the seams on the legs and arms tonight, and sew up the heads. 🙂

To go along with headless bears and the look of Halloween, the paranormal, etc., here is a picture of the full moon this morning!

Buchanan Clan Bear (640x582)Here is Buchanan Clan Bear and he’ll be off to his new home soon. He’s wearing the ancient plaid of the Buchanan. Working on Armstrong Clan Bear today and a Navy bear. I still have a stack of orders to get done. I’ve ordered tartan fabric for two more bears, blue fabric for 2 more, and another wants purple. 🙂 Plus more. 🙂  Wilde & Woolly Bears

I only got 1,000 done on Call of the Cougar yesterday, but finished two Buchanan Clan bears, and am halfway done on an Armstrong Clan bear. 🙂 I hope to get 2,000 done on Cougar today. I had an idea of the near end scene, but still 17,000 or so words to get there. I might just write the scene and then go back in and write the rest of the story to get there. Sometimes I have to do that because a scene will come to me that isn’t in the perfect linear order. I actually was sewing up bonnets for the three clan bears when it came to me. I had to stop what I was doing, and write them down. Or I’d forget it!


Thanks, Åsa Maria Bradley, for sharing this photo! Love it!!! This way it’s not just my word we ACTUALLY rode “home” in it. Had fun with you and Cheryl Brooks and Mia Marlowe Connie Mason! Cheryl is to the left of me. And I’m the one who is all smiles. 🙂  <3 Having a ball.

But I’ve also been trying to come up with the plots for 3 more stories, and have one for a jaguar Christmas story, and just about have one for another SEAL wolf story, and then need to write another Silver wolf one.

I give this book 5 stars.

Well done, once again Terry Spear you have given us a book that kept me engrossed from the start to the finish, so much so that I read this book in one day. This is about an American woman that inherits a castle in Scotland from her family and a pack of Highland wolf shifters that live there.

Posted April 10, 2014

Paranormal Romance

COUGAR’S MATE is Book 1 in Terry Spear’s Heart of the Cougar series. As a longtime fan of Terry Spear, I was very excited to hear about this new series about cougar shifters. Happily for me, I really enjoyed this book. There is a lot of action in COUGAR’S MATE, but it doesn’t obscure the romance.

At the beginning of the story, Shannon Rafferty is a woman in crisis.Chase Buchanan is the sexy, incredibly sweet lawman she runs into. Chase is a dream.

Chase’s buddies — Hal, Dan, and Stryker — are all great guys and I look forward to reading stories about them in future books. They are all tough, former military types, but they all have a wonderful caring side. I love the way the entire town took Shannon in and supported her like one of their own. The town and the feeling of community and family it provides Shannon are almost equally as seductive as Chase’s charms. COUGAR’S MATE is an exciting paranormal romance with a strong heroine and a sweet, sexy hero!

RATING: 4.5 Stars

There is absolutely nothing I didn’t love about Cougar’s Mate by Terry Spear. This is one of those books that grabs you right from the first page and doesn’t let go until the last.

“She’d never felt she was cursed, but what if she was? With three dead boyfriends to her name?”

“Hell, he loved her for all her vulnerability, her sassiness, her caring, everything that made her the she-cat that she was. Somehow, he would save her.”

 photo images1_zpsfe5b83e4.jpg
This book has humor and romance and lots of heart pounding action. I loved every page of it. If you enjoy shifter books, then you will love this book. This was my first book by Terry Spear and most definitely will not be my last.

Instinct told her to run…


Cougar’s Mate pulled me into the story from page one and kept me reading until the last word.

What’s especially enjoyable is Ms. Spears’, slow build up to the physical relationship between Shannon and Chase. It’s not rushed which makes it feel natural. Just when you think things are going Shannon and Chase’s way, trouble rear its head.

During the last part of the story I didn’t want to put the book down so I could continuing reading and see what happened to this pair.

Cougar’s Mate is the first of a new series by Ms. Spears and I can’t wait for book two.


Woohoo!!! Okay, enough dancing around the room, or skipping outside to take pictures. Time to ship books and then get back to the business of writing.

Any plans for the weekend???



The Business of Books


My first box set! Isn’t it cool? Since the first two of my Highland books are with a publisher, I couldn’t do this with my Highland series. And this is the next book series (a teen urban fantasy) that I have that’s growing because of the interest in it. So since I had the sixth book ready for release, I figured I’d release the first five in a box set.


First 5 books in the World of Fae series:

The Dark Fae: Alicia has planned a vacation at South Padre Island with her girlfriend Cassie in forever. But just as they’re enjoying a day on the beach, here comes a dark fae to spoil their holiday, except only she can see what he truly is. Alicia has no idea how upside down her world can turn with a chance meeting with one of the dark fae from the royal house of the Denkar.

The Deadly Fae: Lady Sessily is a dark fae, an assassin, and she intends to retire and take up some other occupation so she can have a normal life. Get a boyfriend. Visit the human world to hassle humans like many of her kind do. Attend fae kingdom parties, not as the mystery woman who is scoping out her next intended victim, but just to have fun. Until tall, dark, handsome, and deadly interrupts her plans.


The Winged Fae: Serena, a royal member of the Mabara winged fae, has one goal in mind. Stop an impending marriage with a dark fae. As the fae are known to do, she stirs up trouble that she hopes will make her point and get her off the hook. Only nothing goes as she plans.


The Ancient Fae: Princess Ritasia misses the adventure of getting her brother and cousins out of trouble, but when the hawk fae king arrives to court her, she becomes involved in trouble nothing like she’s ever faced before.

Dragon Fae: Seeking to save Cassie from the dark fae, Princess Alicia runs into trouble in the form of dangerous fae seers. A dragon fae, who is different from all the rest, is sent to locate and rescue her. Simple mission. All Ena has to do is find the princess and return her home. Except nothing is simple in the world of the fae. Not when two fae kingdoms are involved. And humans. And fae seers. And all the trouble that can cause.

World of Fae Box Set


Barnes and Noble
This is book 6 in the popular urban fantasy series where the fae world and ours is separate. But you know how you run into a wall when you know you have plenty of room to clear it, or you can’t find something you just know you could have put in one of three different places, and it’s not in any one of them, or your skin prickles with unease for no apparent reason–well, blame it on the fae. They pop in to play games with us humans. So next time you spill something, it really wasn’t your fault. Just take it as a good natured–or not–fae having a bit of fun at your expense. And the day WILL get better. If the fae move along. Just be glad that you’re not a fae seer–someone who can see them when they’re not visible to the rest of  us. If you can see the fae, that’s a whole other story! And so the series continues!

Hawk Fae book 6 eyes (532x800)

Sometimes doing a good deed can prove to be a disaster, Ena, dragon shifter fae, discovers as she must flee her home. But her staff chooses to go with her and deal with the dangers to reach the safety of the hawk fae kingdom, if the king there welcomes them. The human, Brett, promises to help her escape the marriage to the despicable dragon fae prince, rather than return home to his Earth world. And now all the dragon shifter fae are at risk of having to face the dragon fae king’s wrath.

Esmeralda, the hawk fae king’s sister has been imprisoned by the griffin on their island for half of her life and she finally makes her escape, only she gets herself into even more trouble.

Against her wishes, Ena must forsake Brett on the journey, and he finds his world is turned upside down once again and now he has to survive the life or death trials of the phantom fae kingdom.

Demon Trouble, Too’s audiobook also just released. The narrator who was working the first one was having technical difficulty. *sigh* So two is out before one.

Alana Fainot is a demon gate guardian, stuck in her last boring year of school. But not for long. Hunter and the rest of the gang show up when her astral form can’t return to her physical form, and she’s at the police station trying to talk her way out of having seen the murderer of a summoner. Hunter always knew Alana was trouble, but his kind of trouble, and he’s not leaving Alana alone again.

Celeste Sweetwater, a new kind of demon, joins Hunter and Alana and the rest of the demon guardians in a fight to find a new kind of portal device that can summon several demons at once. But not only that, another Matusa has been unleashed on the unsuspecting human world and the demon guardians must stop him before he wreaks much more havoc.

But this time, the police are involved, paranormal investigators pounce on the area, and the whole mess seems to be spiraling out of the demon guardians’ control.


I just received some review copies, so if anyone wants to listen to a teen urban fantasy and has never used one of audible’s free credits, let me know and I can give you a copy. These are not on CD. 🙂

Okay, so I’ve had enough goofing off. Totally missed my word count on Jaguar Pride yesterday with finishing these up. Sooo, no more skipping my word count goals!

Have a super Middle of the Week Day!
