Even Bigfoot Likes Halloween!

In Legend of the White Wolf, I have Bigfoot hunters, and so in the latest red wolf Christmas story, I’ve gone back to the hunters.

I’m off to work on Angel Fae. I have 32K and want at least 55K on it. I had some ideas floating in my head when I woke in the middle of the night, but the problem with that is they just…float away.

I’ve been weeding the backyard like crazy. My daughter wants a crepe myrtle, and a couple of esperanzas and I’m going to see if I can find some baby ferns. They’re going to weed this weekend, so I’ll go out and dig up volunteers that I can find. I’m not sure on the ferns, but I do have some baby esperanzas and crepe myrtles.

Have a wonderful day!!! I’ve got to get to work!

This novella was released with a re-release of a novel earlier, so if you’re a reader who already downloaded the novel, you already have this one.

Also, for my print fans, still waiting to hear when the anthologies will come out with the print versions!

Have a super day! My granddaughter will be here any second, so got to run!

Pelicans and Pelican Art

Using a texture can really isolate the subject(s) and give them prominence. In this photo taken at Wolf Canyon in Omaha, NE. I first removed a ton of white spots on the water with healing brush (Photoshop), and then added a Daily Texture overlay. I masked off the bird photo, leaving the texture exposed around them using a layer mask. That way I could switch out the textures below the original photo and see which I liked best. I left the two floating feathers for fun.

I managed 4,000 words yesterday, halfway done for minimum word count, but I need to figure out where to go with it this morning. And really, I need at least another 3,500 for the true halfway point because I normally do about 89K or longer.

Have a great day! I’ve got to get busy!

Saving the White Cougar–Now Released!

So when a lovely fan and friend of mine sent me an article about a rare white cougar, I knew that I had to write the cougar’s story. And since I’ve been writing a Halloween shifter story each year, this is the one for this year! Maybe next year I can write a wolf’s Halloween story.

Saving the White Cougar–September 1, 2021 https://read.amazon.com/kp/card?preview=inline&linkCode=kpd&ref_=k4w_oembed_awZiGVjMETguG6&asin=B08XP14XMS&tag=kpembed-20

Stella White never believed that going on a cougar run would be such a dangerous excursion, painful, punishing, and pleasurable in the end. She realized that sometimes she just needed to get through the bad stuff to get to the good stuff and that meant meeting Ted Weekum, ranch foreman, and the kind of cowboy she’d only dreamed of.

Ted Weekum was visiting with his brother at the ranch when he thought he saw a white flash of fur, but it wasn’t until hunters started shooting up the place, claiming they’d shot a white cougar did the notion sink in that the cougar could be one of their own shifter kind. But a white cougar? Unheard of. And yet when he went to save her life—that’s exactly what he found. A rare white cougar. Unclaimed. Unmated. The right age. The stars had aligned right that night.

But the hunters aren’t through with hunting down the wounded white cougar, or Stella White.

I love writing about shifters. I had planned to make this a novella, but I was just having too much fun and it turned into a novel!

Hope you all love it!

The Frog Prince

I was working on another art submission. We had to have the layout of text the same way that they wanted but using any text, elements, etc. So this is Tanner wearing a frog prince hat for Halloween, and overlay to make him a frog prince, and NLD Designs frog prince scraps art work.

I edited more of USF Christmas novella. I need to make the changes this morning and then start writing new scenes. I have word count, just need to finish it!

Have a great day! I need to get going on mine!

The Eternal Optimist

May be an illustration of text that says 'TODAY isthe FIRST DAY the rest your IFE. by Charlos Dederich Spread your wings and fly!'
I created this with a photo of seagulls in flight in Daytona Beach and other items from Oscraps.

No AC again. Ugh. And I was supposed to get a delivery and waited all day for it, but the person that was supposed to deliver it decided he didn’t want to, and said I wasn’t there, when I was. All. Day. No one came to the door.

So they’re going to try and fix the AC today, if they can get the coils in, but they only work a half day. Not sure about it. I stayed with the kids last night because it’s so hot at the house. But I’ll be at my house all day, if they’re going to come to fix the AC. Again. Hopefully it will be. If not, I’ll probably stay at their home again tomorrow night. I need to take the dogs in and out and feed them, so I have to be home for some of the day.

But I AM going to get lots done on this novella this weekend. I’m determined.

I wanted to get so much more done on the novella, did a lot, but had so much craziness today, didn’t get as far as I wanted to.

Today I learned a group of employees went to a conference–can’t give details–but they went to a bar after their meetings during the day and were drinking out of a communal bowl of liquor. Swapping spit, ewww. Did you know you can get mouth herpes that way?

It’s bad enough during normal times, but to drink from a container that everyone else is drinking from too now??????? These people are all educated too, but hey, get drunk, lose brain cells. Four are in the hospital with COVID, countless others all came down with COVID. I guess alcohol doesn’t kill the virus, right?

Okay, so today is the first day of the rest of my life, and that means, I’m going to get somewhere with this book, AC, or no AC, delivery, or no delivery. Never give up, never surrender.

Have a super fun day!!!

Recreating Covers

I wanted to redo some covers, or buy some artists’ covers if I could find any that would suit a couple of my stories that are already written, but I couldn’t find one I liked for The Shadow Elf, so yesterday I worked on a new one of my own. I had made the first one 11 years ago and I’ve learned a lot about Photoshop and compositing since then!

Now I’ll have to see what else I have that I need to rework! But I’m still trying to finish up USF Christmas. The cover for that one is still a work in progress, but nearly done. I’m hoping I’ll have the United Shifter Force Christmas novella for the anthology finished by Sunday night and can start editing it! Over halfway done! 🙂❤ Coming December 7th, 2021

I managed to get 2500 words yesterday on United Shifter Force Christmas so I’m up to 13,500.

At 5:30 this morning, it’s supposed to be 80 degrees and 7% chance of rain. The weatherman needs to wake up and change the forecast. It is POURING. Yay! Love it when it rains.

So I have my granddaughter for the next two days. She’s been missing me since I haven’t had her since last Thursday. Even though I pick her up from school every afternoon, it’s not the same as staying the day with grandma. Her mom made the mistake of teasing her about staying the night with grandma and she had a fit when she couldn’t. lol Grandma was still trying to get word count on the book last night. Today, and Friday I probably won’t get much done at all.

Okay, well I’m up early, so need to get some stuff done before she gets here!

Have a beautiful day! Mine started out fun with a great storm that, according to the weather service, isn’t happening.

You Had Me at Cougar Released!

Master baker Ava Lamar has one mission in mind after baking tons of treats for the Fourth of July celebration in Yuma Town—swimming at Lake Buchanan on this hot summer’s day. What she doesn’t expect is to be saddled with running the fortune telling booth—using her real psychic abilities—and giving a hot, bachelor cougar a place to stay for the whole weekend.

Cougar Shifter Force Special Agent Chet Kensington has just finished a tough mission, been chewed up a bit by rogue cougars, and he’s taking a break to be with his old team, but he has no place to stay, everything being booked up in Yuma Town for the big cougar celebration. When Ava reluctantly allows him to stay with her, he finds himself drawn to her the whole celebration long.

But back home in Wyoming, things are getting out of hand. A serial killer is murdering female cougars and he and some of his old team have to find him, pronto. The problem is all the trouble leads right back to Ava—and now he has to do his best to keep her safe before the killer adds her to his list of victims.

I was going to write this earlier, but then I realized it looked too summery, so I went with Cougar Christmas Calamity earlier and then this was my summer cougar book. But I thought I’d write Saving the White Cougar as a Halloween novella and so I thought I’ll jump on that quickly between wolf deadline books. But Saving the White Cougar kept growing and growing and growing. lol

So it turned into a full-length novel, which is fine, but I still needed it to come AFTER You Had Me at Cougar. 🙂 You Had Me at Cougar print cover will be worked on Monday, so I’m hoping I can have it up by Friday of next week.

Saving the White Cougar is ready for preorders with a release date of September 1st.

We had violent storms last night and this morning, but I think things are supposed to chill out after that.

Now if I could only come up with some ideas for the Christmas stories!

I have to start thinking WOLF again.

Have a great day!

My Cat is Not Spoiled…

It’s going to be a wild day today is all I can say. I was out pulling up spent sunflowers and got the trash out. I have a million things to do.

When I took Tanner in for his shots, the vet recommends I brush my dogs’ teeth. Well, that’s easier said than done!!! Yes, he eats hard food. Yes, he chews on bones. Yes, he crunches on hard biscuits. It doesn’t matter!

So there’s something I can add to the water that I’m going to try that’s supposed to help with the tartar build up. And he has one ear with too much hair in it. Tanner is a hairy dog. What can I say? His black fur is so thick it’s wonderful, but it’s also a job to comb through all the way to the roots, though I spend a couple of hours on him every day. I looked at his ear, but I couldn’t see what she was talking about. He’ll go to the groomers this weekend and I’ll ask them to do it. At least with trying to brush his teeth, he likes the baking soda toothpaste. And when Max came up to get his brushing–he has to do everything that Tanner does, Tanner was right back up there wanting me to brush his teeth again. Well, maybe not brush them, but give him some more of that toothpaste. Silly dog.

Little one will be here any second, so I need to wrap this up. I have to go to the grocery store this morning or we won’t have anything for lunch or dinner.

Hope you all have a wonderfully exciting day too!
