I Wish My Dreams Would…

Create the scenes I need to propel my story along. Wouldn’t that be neat? I know some authors whose brains work that way. What a miracle that would be! Here you’d get your sleep, kind of, and still be writing the story, kind of.

Not me. Though sometimes as I’m waking, or trying to fall asleep, I’ll be mulling over the story and voila! I have a breakthrough idea! Not last night or this morning, however. Which means I just have to write until I get it right.

You Had Me at Jaguar–Feb 26!

Back to writing on SEAL Team wolfies! The golden jaguar in the foreground was so good to allow me to photograph him while he was thinking about how good I would taste. The other jaguars are from renderosity. Have a beautiful day!!!

Someone Has to be in Charge

Pillars and background from a picture I took in Scotland.

Can you imagine telling a dragon what to do? Just pretend it’s a very big lapdog. Feed it well. Pet it nicely. Speak soothingly. And always remind him that you are the boss.

Now that you’ve had your lesson 101 in being in charge, I’m back to writing and trying to take charge of my characters. It’s not working. They often take over. And then there are the dogs. The granddaughter–toddler, you know. But in the end, it all works out.

Have a great weekend!!

Thought I was Getting Ahead of the Game

But it was all an illusion. Have you ever thought that and then new deadlines are looming and you’re like…well, shoot, now you’re even behinder (author made-up word that should be a real word) than before.

I managed to write my word count for yesterday, 2,000 words, catch up the 1,000 I was behind, and write an additional 1,500 to put me ahead of the game on the Wolff Bros, due April 1st, because I need to start writing on the new novella, due March 1st. BUT, I ended up with SEAL Wolf Surrender to proofread last night, due in two weeks. So yes, I was getting a little ahead, and now….behinder.

That means I’m off to work! Hope you have a deadline-less day. Hope I get an inspirational idea for the novella, SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue. I keep thinking of where I want this to go, but it doesn’t work with my hero and heroine having a romance. So, still searching for a good idea.

Claiming the White Bear–Coming Soon!

A Romeo-Juliet type family feud, polar bear style, tore them apart; can they find true love again?

It’s nearly Christmas, no tours on the schedule for Edward MacMathan and his brother and so they’re working in their uncle and aunt’s tavern when the love of Edward’s life returns with two young boys in tow, and they look a lot like him when he and Rob were that age. Robyn Conibear is in trouble and she’s fled her deceased mate’s sleuth to keep his parents from taking custody of her and Edward’s sons.

Can she and Edward renew the love they had for each other despite the six years that have passed? Or will her return only cause more grief between her family and his as the hostilities renew?

But Edward is the boys’ true father and she wants to be with him no matter what. Likewise, Edward is determined to protect her and the boys, both from her former mate’s sleuth and her own, and take up where the two of them had left off.

***

So I managed to proof 9 chapters and a prologue yesterday, and I’m working to finish up the book today. Then formatting, and hopefully publishing the ebook by Sunday. The print will take a little longer for the proofing and I still need to make the cover.

But once this is done, I HAVE to start writing on the next Silver Town wolf book. Still trying to come up with an original idea. Each book has to be!

Today for 365 photography days, is circles, so I’ll take a picture of something later today, and tomorrow is hugs. If only I could get the dogs to hug each other. Baby hugs all her stuffed animals, but she won’t be here. So I’ll have to pose some stuffed animals without her.

I’m off and running! Hope you have a terrific day!!

Going at a Snail’s Pace is…

Not happening! Not if I want to get anything done!

I’m sure the fae were at work yesterday–hassling me. It all started with trying to get directions to an appointment I had that morning. Google Maps said it would take me 4 hours and 1 min to get there. Wait, what???? Walking.

That was only the BEGINNING of my wild morning. But baby’s here and I’ve got to run! No walking allowed. Not with a toddler on the go. I plan to take her to critter hour at the children’s museum, if everything works out.

And we have to run errands! It’s harder to run them with a toddler, but at the same time, I don’t get a lot done during the day when she’s here, so it gives me time to do things I really need to do and then I can write on the days she’s not here. Win-win for me! AND, sometimes she falls asleep! Which she really needs to do, but fights all the time.

So we’re off to have fun! Have a great day!!!

Not to Spoil a Fantasy, but…

Being a Fairy Princess

When I was a child, I wanted to be a fairy princess…but then you grow up and you learn that castles take a lot of upkeep–taxes, maintenance, and well, upkeep. Can you imagine dusting it? And then there are the fairy gardens. Having gardens of my own, that never look like this, I know just how much work they are.

And even if you could afford to hire all of it done, then you have all the issues of hired labor–insurance, salaries, grumbling.

But in a fairy-tale world? They don’t mention all of that. Okay, speaking of the real world, just fed baby and we’re going to take a walk in the cold, but it’s finally light out enough. But you know what? We’ll be fairy princesses on our walk because we can be.

Have a great one!!! Be a prince or a king or a queen or a princess. You can be! And have fun.

Do You Ever Feel You’re Fighting a Dragon?

Sometimes you have to just battle a dragon, or two, to get what you want.

Telling a Story in Pictures

A wolf wanting to play, but Spirit, the horse, is getting all the attention.

And Daz, the doberman, getting into the candy canes, and do you see the partially eaten cookie? Just when Santa is leaving too. But Daz doesn’t care. The presents are already under the tree.

Back to the book! It’s going to rain all day and we have flood warnings in effect. A good day to stay home and just….write. Have a great day!!!

Feels Like Fall!!!!

Okay, so while baby was here yesterday, I created these and I actually managed to write 3,000 words on Woodland Fae. I was feeling glum because I hadn’t written any on it in the last few days. My goal was to be at 35,000 today. With 33K done, I’ll make it!

I went out and pulled up all the zinnia from one of my biggest flowerbeds this morning. It’s garbage day and I had three, 40-gal sacks of zinnia and weeds to put out in the coooooool weather. Oh, it’s wonderful! Though I was still killing mosquitoes like crazy. I have two more zinnia beds, but those are still flowering really well.

A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas

Woohoo, a great review at Fresh Fiction! “Danger and holiday delights are perfectly balanced in this tale of werewolf doctors in love!” In A BILLIONAIRE WOLF FOR CHRISTMAS, two doctors fall in love and save the werewolf world one wolf at a time. Terry Spear crafts a story that is homespun, full of humor and family unity, and tops it off with a few thrills and a sparkling romance. I look forward to Terry Spear’s next wolf shifter romance. ~~Mandy Owen

Cougar Magic is now available in print!

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 still need to get help from Apple for their iTunes Producer for my keychain issue.

It feels so good to be cool!!! Okay, I have to do a million things and write my word count today, so I’m off and running.

Have a great one!!!

Fantasy…Reality

A hero being heroic and raindrops falling on a water lily pond.

Even with a made-up world, it has to seem real. It has to have some foundation of reality. It makes it easier for readers to feel connected.

In my YA fae stories, my world is different. If they shift from dragon to fae, they’re dressed. The same with the wolf shifters. They are fae. It’s a fantasy world, but combined with the real world when they visit us and wreak havoc. Believe me, they do it too. To me. All the time.

In my real world (ha!, you know, as far as reality goes), the shifters have to remove their clothes before they can shift. I mean, come on, it’s the real world, right?

And that’s all I’m saying as I go off to play in…hmm, the Woodland Fae….or Cougar Magic. Cougar Magic is the final read-through. Woodland Fae needs its daily word count. I want get my writing done, but I want to get Cougar Magic published. It’s a conundrum.

Have a great day!!! I’m off to play with reality.
