Birthday Celebration Time!

We’re celebrating my son-in-law’s and my birthday today–my son sent the flowers, and I was having fun with adding a fairy to the dandelion photo.

I’m off to feed the puppies before they starve to death–that’s what they’re telling me anyway. And back to work on the story before we begin partying.

I have to get this done!!! I worked on about 3 more chapters last night after baby went home.

I’ve been watching I Shouldn’t Have Survived. It’s a really good series, but there’s a reoccurring theme: people don’t let anyone know where they’re going, when they’re returning, they don’t take satellite phones, cell phones, GPS locaters, they don’t take water or food, they go it alone.

Yep. And then they get into trouble and no one even knows about it. Now in a few cases, they had the food and water and lost it in a sunken boat, or avalanche, or while pinned under a vehicle. But the avalanche story and the pinned under the vehicle cases? Both were alone and didn’t tell anyone when they were returning and where they were going.

Another thing was checking the weather. Ignoring it or just not checking. And pushing forward, when they should have stayed put. One got lost in a blizzard and kept pushing to reach the top. He was an amateur hiker, lost all sense of direction, had told people where he was going to be, but he ended up in a different valley, and fell off a cliff. Two different cases got lost in the outback, kept walking. Everyone knew where they were supposed to go, and searched for them there, but they didn’t stay put.

Clothing issues. No one planned to be gone for long. Hour, three hours. Most of the places were hot during the day, and the temperature would drop drastically at night. Hypothermia would set in. They were always wearing light clothing. And most of the time they couldn’t be seen against the vast landscape of desert or snowy mountains or the never-ending sea.

I do have some survival crises in my stories–usually just read tons of similar stories on the internet–avalanche in one book, rip current in another, falling through a snowbridge in another. Since I have to keep my main characters smart, I can’t have them doing dumb things like the survivors did. It has to be a real accident. Nothing they could plan for. Or in the case of an avalanche, that knuckleheads created by running up and down a slope on snowmobiles and the wolves had to rescue them.

But it helps to watch shows like this to get new ideas!

Have a great one! I’ve got to get to work on the story before I can play.

Perfectly Purple

Baby’s on her way, so I’m trying to get this done this morning before she gets here. I was working until late last night on the book. Added 2,000 more, still working toward the end.

This was the 1st day challenge for Click, Love, Grow: Pick your favorite color and make a collage of it. I LOVE purple, don’t have much in the line of purple in the house, but I love to see purple flowers in the garden, make purple bears, light, dark, and a mixture, and dress baby in it when I can. The purple mountains are on my favorite mug that I brought home from Scotland–feature the black faced sheep, and the Scottish thistle tea cup my mother gave me years ago. The little purple cup was from my son and daughter’s great-great grandmother. When I picked it out of the inheritance their grandmother had received, my MIL said she’d checked and it didn’t have any value.

She’s wrong. It’s the prettiest purple tea cup I’ve ever loved to own.

And Dreaming of the Wolf was my only purple cover. Love it. I had wanted to have a field of purple wildflowers in Colorado, since Jake Silver was a photographer and captured them in his photos. But my publisher said the real photographer wanted too much, so they turned the whole cover purple. Love it!

Okay, off to take care of baby! Have a beautifully purple day!

Today’s photo challenge is light.

Lots of New Reviews! And Spring Flowers! And a Spring Bunny!

“Will Elaine and Cearnach find time to fall in love amid treasure hunts and attacks from the enemy?

Terry Spear’s A Highland Werewolf Wedding is sexy fun! Elaine and Cearnach are perfect for each other; both are Alphas and act like it. When they first meet it isn’t under the best of circumstances but it is impossible to miss the attraction between them—with each barb they exchange things get hotter.

The scenes between Cearnach’s mother and Elaine are great. The MacNeill’s bring tons of light humor to the story. It’s great to catch up with the family. A Highland Werewolf Wedding will leave the reader blissfully satisfied.: Reviewed by Miranda http://sulia.com/channel/romance-novels/f/f2de4304-2f5b-48ac-83e6-6ec500f112ff/?action=prop&source=tw&form_factor=desktop

“A SEAL Wolf Christmas starts off fast and furious in the Amazon jungle. Things heat up quickly as it’s impossible for Anna and Bjornolf to ignore the budding feelings between them. I found A SEAL Wolf Christmas to be a fun and sexy read. Ms. Spear gives us a good mystery, a heartwarming holiday tale and some serious sexy times with the couple.” Reviewed by Miranda http://sulia.com/channel/romance-novels/f/f2f0d500-c9fc-4ecc-b1aa-852009455aff/?action=prop&source=tw&form_factor=desktop

“Cougar’s Mate is a shapeshifter romance with a twist even I didn’t expect – Shannon is the cougar shift gone feral in an attempt to save her life while Chase is the cougar who shoots her. A rather humorous mixture of escapes, protectiveness and heated moments follow as Yuma Town (cougar town) join forces to try and convince Shannon that staying is in her best interests. I loved this book! Just like all the ‘wolf books that Terry Spear has written, Cougar’s Mate includes the best parts of the feral beasts these people shift into. I’m definitely looking forward to reading book two and getting to know more of the large-hearted cougar shifters!” Review by: Dominique Goodall on April 08, 2014 : star star star star star https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/413454

My daughter said I had a bird sanctuary. With the bunny coming around, I feel like Beatrix Potter. 🙂

Have a lovely middle of the week day. I’m over the hump on A SEAL Wolf for Sale, and working toward making 50,000 by the weekend.
