The 10th Anniversary Release of Wolf Fever is Out!

Old Wolf Fever–Cats Are Not Sure What to Make of It!

Book 2 in Terry Spear’s Silver Town Wolf Series

She may be his destiny, but she’s not his first choice

Hospital nurse and newly turned red werewolf Carol Woods is being pressured by her pack leader to find a mate, but he’s the only guy in the pack who remotely attracts her.

Why is he playing so hard to get?

The fate of the pack rests on his shoulders

Gray pack leader Ryan McKinley doesn’t want anything to do with Carol unless she’s willing to embrace her wolf nature-no matter how beautiful she is.

But when a virus infects the local lupus garou pack, Ryan realizes just how wrong he’s been not to seize the moment with the woman he’s come to love. And now, it may be too late…

Still under the weather today. I know this is just a head cold and sinus issues, but with the state of the world we’re in today and just to make sure it’s nothing more and they now have some testing places for it when they haven’t in the past, I’ll take a COVID-19 test. No rapid tests available, so I won’t know for 3-4 days. I will be staying home during that time, just in case.

I don’t know how many cases I’ve heard where someone doesn’t feel well, gets the testing, then runs all over the place, then a few days later learn they have the virus. Really?

Off to put the word out about the book release. I’ve been feeling so poorly, I just didn’t even think about it until this morning–after I wrote another blog, so set it up for tomorrow to post.

Have a great day and stay safe.

2 Swans a Swimming

I took the photo at the zoo in Waco some years ago and then I painted the photo using brushes in Photoshop.

I managed 1500 words yesterday on the story. I’m 500 short of my goal for 70K. Now I just need to finish it! Easier said than done. lol But that’s really the fun part. Finishing it so I can really edit a whole book and make it better.

Tomorrow Wolf Fever, the 10th Anniversary Release is out!!!

Have a lovely day!!

Snow Leopard

I have 3 snow leopards in my polar bear series, 3 brothers that I want to write about. This is a photo I took in Omaha, and the snow leopard is Photoshop painted, then added Daily Texture winter overlays.

I managed to get my 2,000 word count yesterday for Cougar Christmas yesterday, despite feeling miserable. I had an awful sore throat for the last 3 days and all through the night. I knew every time I swallowed, it hurt so bad. Then I think I finally was so tired, I fell asleep. This morning, my throat feels much better. I’ve coughed for the last two days, headaches, sinus issues. I’m hoping by Thanksgiving Day I’ll be feeling better. I think it’s just a cold. Little one gave it to me from her daycare. At least I hope that’s all it is.

I’ve been editing through the story, making changes to fit other changes I made later on, but have some ideas I need to start writing in the story. Still need to do the proofing on The Wolf Wore Plaid.

Have a great day! I’m off to get mine started!

Wolf Fever 10th Anniversary Release Up Next!

I turned in Dreaming of the Wolf 10th Anniversary edits, yay! And immediately got The Wolf Wears Plaid edits. lol

But next Tuesday Wolf Fever 10th Anniversary release comes out, so I was working on the video trailer and I was editing Cougar Christmas Calamity.

My granddaughter gave me her cold, so I’m feeling under the weather. I’m going to try and get plenty of fluids and rest so I’ll feel better by Thanksgiving. After picking her up from daycare yesterday, I won’t be taking care of her until the week following Thanksgiving–though Momma said I could take her overnight if I wanted–lol–no. Not when I feel this bad and I have another deadline to take care of it. It’s easy, final read for proofing on the Highland wolf, so no problem. Little one was so cute. She didn’t want to go to a birthday party at the daycare because she wanted to come home with Grandma. She really is a sweetie.

So when I was trying to work on Wolf Fever’s video, I’d just finished edits on Dreaming of the Wolf, set in the summer in Colorado. I was thinking flowers, butterflies. Whoops, wrong book. I had the right story line for Wolf Fever, wrong season. Fall? Was it fall? Nope, spring, so it was still cold at night and in the mornings. I have to look up temperatures for an area I write about because for me, Spring–like Feb/March, we have flowers, then flowers all summer long through the fall, and it’s warm, stormy sometimes, but it’s not the same in Colorado. Then I’m working on Cougar Christmas and it’s cold, winter, snow, Christmas, North Shore. No wonder I get confused about the seasons in a particular book.

I was out this morning, finally feeding the poor birds, found lots of monarch caterpillars on the milkweed, so took pictures of them, got rid of a bunch of milkweed bugs and took a picture of flowers flowering that had just been too hot in the summer and now are blooming again. One sunflower that is about 10 feet tall, or taller, finally bloomed! It’s from a seed carried by birds since I hadn’t planted any there.

I’m off to try and write. I only managed 300 words of my 2,000 on Cougar Christmas Calamity yesterday, just felt lousy. I feel the same way today. If I can’t write, I’ll start proofing the other book so I can turn it in before Thanksgiving.

Have a great day!!!

Passed on the Chimp!

I was playing more with the mid-key background and turned it in. Then we have to add a subject once the background passes. The thing is the background changes so much after I add the subject to get it to blend in and add the colors that work with the subject that it seems like it makes more sense to just create it, drop in the subject and get approval, or not.

Okay, so I’m working on Cougar, managed to get an extra 1,000 in yesterday. Only 12K left to go (minimum word count I’m shooting for), but I need to do edits on Dreaming too.

Have a great day! I’m working on the low key background next and a butterfly.

Still Playing with This Photo

I need to add a hint of his tail, I think. Macaw at one of the zoos I visited.

I’ve been trying to get a 1,000 on the days I have little one. I need to rework the chimpanzee a bit and I’m hoping to reach 57K on the book today, but wait, I have edits on another book that came in. Dreaming of the Wolf with the new novella will be coming out next year, the 10th Anniversary release, so I need to do those too.

Off to work!

Hope you all have a great one.

Painting the Chimp

A chimp photo I took at the Omaha Zoo and oil painted in Photoshop. I went back in and added the leg where he was resting his arm on, but couldn’t find the right overlay to make it the deeper blue.

Little one is here, got to run! Have a great day!

Blue Jay in Photoshop Oil

So I was waiting on a background check in the class–not secret clearances but whether my manual background in oil passed, and worked on one of the blue jays I’ve photographed in my yard in the meantime.

I’ve got a million things to do, but I want to write too. Things are getting jumbled up as commitments to do things are starting to stack up, ugh. My daughter is moving her daughter to a new day care because the old one won’t do anything about mask wearing and they’re not teaching the three-year olds anything. The new place is a little closer, but Grandma has to pick her up at 3 on the three days I don’t have her, so that’s going to cut into my days. I HAVE to get her by 3, or they get charged a lot more…that means leaving here about 2:30. And my days to have her are changing again, so I have to get my mind wrapped around that. AND I have to remember that I’m picking her up at 3 on the other days. Poor Grandma.

Once I do it a few times, it will be business as usual, but…

Okay, I’m off to walk, then go to the grocery store. Wanted to also go get bark mulch, but I think I’ll do that on Monday. The electrician—2nd one I contacted–is coming in the evening. The first one never showed up either Friday or Saturday or texted me about it at all. This guy was recommended by a neighbor friend and is super nice.

Have a great day!!! I have to redo my background in the class–just a little change and then it should be approved and I can move on. Yay! I have 5 more to do, but I’ve done all of them already, sooooo…..

I’m off to write! Have a great day!

Are You Adventurous?

I love this. Not sure if it’s an optical illusion, the real deal, or a composite, but it’s cool.

So I’m up to 41K on Cougar Christmas Calamity. When I start out, it always seems so daunting. Now I’m over halfway done.

I was back to cutting vegetation out of pathways, need to move another plant–this one a volunteer. I was going to give it to my daughter but she doesn’t want to plant things right now. It will get too big and too difficult to move later, so I’m going to find a spot for it in my garden. The cleaned up garden beds are looking so nice. With cooler temps, it helps to keep vegetation from going so crazy. lol

Okay, little one will be here shortly. I need to get to work. I’m playing around with painting a crepe myrtle. They have new background brushes and that’s what we’re working on now for the class. Just backgrounds.

Have a super day! Happy TGIF!
