Growing up on Mythology, Mysteries, and Thrillers

Centaurs in love. When I need a break, I create pictures, take pictures, play with my dogs, play with my granddaughter, garden, weed, weed, weed….but mostly write.

I will never lose my love of fantasy though. It takes me out of the drudgery of life: didn’t I just clean that toilet? What’s the ring doing there again? Weeds? I pulled them all. How come there are more now than before? Groceries? I have no groceries again? Wasn’t I just at the store?

Yep, fantasy is the stuff of fun.

Have a great, fantastical day. Now it’s time to get back to Billionaire She-Wolf and that means fun!

Randomness

Kate and Leyton Hill from Taming the Wild Cougar

On and off, I was playing around with a family tree for one of my character families. I’m going to try and make one for each of the cougar shifters because I have fans that play their characters in a FB group. How cool is that?

I had Keira here yesterday, so I was taking her for a walk, she was actually walking the whole way, needed to wear her out, and then we went shopping, and she feel asleep for 2 1/2 hours, and then we played in the sprinkler and Grandmomma got as wet as the toddler, only I wasn’t wearing a bathing suit, and then she played in the wading pool. And her momma was late picking her up, so I only managed about 600 words on the book. *sigh* I was trying for a 1,000 at least.

So when I went to blog this morning, I had to mention a pet peeve I’ve mine: changing something that’s not broken. So WordPress has changed something that forces me to take another step. I used to just select one thing and write my blog. Now I have to go to Write and then select which WordPress site I want to write on. If I wanted to write on one of the others, I would have opened up those sites. Another step doesn’t sound like much, but when I’ve got an active toddler here, or piranha dogs, yes, my little fluff balls are like piranhas, then it takes away from what I should be doing….uhm, writing, catching up, not catching up. Not only that, but look at all the time I wasted talking about my pet peeve?

I just had to get that off my chest. Now I can go on with my life.

Did I mention that a woman nearly pulled out in front of me at the grocery store and would have caused a car wreck?

She was stopped at the stop sign. I was watching her. I thought she wasn’t going anywhere.

She. Was. Stopped.

But she looked right and then saw no cars were coming, she pulled out.

Right. In. Front. Of. Me.

I was going really slow, parking lot, but I still had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting her because I wasn’t stopping. Because I wasn’t supposed to. I expected her to look left, to see me, like any good driver would do. But she didn’t. She just pulled out, and at that point, I was only inches from her!

I hit my horn, which was a lame thing to do because she was already in my way and not stopping. She looked at me like she just couldn’t believe a car was inches from her passenger door. Like, how did I suddenly materialize next to her car?

Duh.

Look BOTH ways, lady! Cars drive BOTH ways. The good thing was I didn’t hit her. And the second good thing was it was a valuable reminder to her to look both ways, because if I’d been like some of the drivers in parking lots, I would have been driving faster and hit her. Well, yes, of course, if I’d been speeding through the parking lot, I might have passed her before she pulled out, but who knows, right?

Okay, got that off my chest. Now I’m free to write. lol!

Have a lovely, accident-free day!!!!

Okay, NOW I’ve Beaten the Bug!

X Marks the Spot!

It’s done! See, last time I said that, it wasn’t through with me. It was laughing it’s little green spindly head off at me while my soldiers were fighting it tooth and nail. And it was multiplying, getting out of control. And then it was getting weaker, losing the battle. Then it came back in short spurts of battle. But still, my troops were winning. Yes! And we won! I would like to say I was commanding my army against the invaders in such an exemplary manner that I truly was the reason for such good leadership and the win.

Maybe the banana and Gatorade yesterday helped. Maybe all the bed rest. Maybe just…hating to admit it…time made the difference. But yesterday I took care of my granddaughter, we walked, we played, I still am short of breath and feel weak, but no more stomach issues. Yay!

The bug is beaten! I want to do a million things I couldn’t before I got sick. I know I need to still take it easy, but, the bug is gone. (I hope.)

I HAVE to get my car safety inspected today so I can renew the car registration. I need to finish copyedits on Silver Town Wolf: Home for the Holidays so I can get back to writing on Billionaire She-Wolf. I need to shop for a mother-of-the-bride dress for my son’s wedding. Do you think anyone will notice if I wear the same one I wore for his first wedding?

Okay, I’m really off to get to work. Hope you are having a lovely day today. We have a misty rain, and I took a walk! Have a beautiful day.

Trying to Get Things Done

There Be Monsters on the Prowl

Okay, had to start my blog over again because WordPress glitched. ugh.

I’m off to work on the book, need to do the materials request today, and then I can clean the house. Yep, that’s the celebration for finishing a book.

But I look forward to it!

Have a great day!

Freebies and new releases! Okay, I’m off to continue trying to keep up and get ahead on my deadline goals. I caught up yesterday with 5,000 words and did lots of weeding the garden in the cold misty rain. Much better than doing it in the hot mosquitoy sun in the summer where the soil is baked and pulling up weeds is so much harder. And much better than singing in the rain. You would really not want to hear me singing in the rain or otherwise.

Highland Wolves series by Terry Spear

These highlanders are fierce warriors–in human or wolf form.
 

Get it at Apple!

Okay, off to work! Happy TGIF!

Wet and Wild

We ended up having a downpour yesterday when the weatherman kept saying it wouldn’t be until later, later, later, and that was supposed to be around 11 pm. This was around 1 pm. They were off by a 1.

We may be getting some more rain tomorrow and the next day from a tropical storm.

In the meantime, just remember if you’re a shifter, don’t do it when I’m out taking pictures.Image may contain: text, nature and outdoor

Have a fun day! I wrote 6,000 words yesterday, hope to get to 45,000 today! Baby will be here tomorrow and that’s the end of writing as we all know it.

Fun in the Garden

Coreopsis, marigolds, giant zinnias, and gerbera daisy

We were supposed to have a beautiful storm, lots of rain, didn’t happen. BUT, it did cool down a bit last night and I was able to pull more grass. I had to water though. First thing at 5 am, it was beastly hot again.

I did finish edits on You Had Me at Shifter! I’ll be re-reading one scene over again this morning, turn it in, and then working on some more edits on SEAL Wolf Surrender. I also worked on Claiming the White Bear last night. I think that gives me 13,000 words. 57,000 more to go!!! So I need to type up my notes on that.

And today, I hope to get the St. Patrick’s Bear done and Santa ready to ship tomorrow.

Oh, and yeah, take pictures…just….because.

Have a lovely Sunday!!!

Zinnia in the Garden

The different colors of zinnia, the gold and light pink are both giant zinnias. The two at the bottom tower over purple Spanish heather!

Baby should be here any second. And I wrote the final fight scene in SEAL Wolf Surrender. Edits for You Had Me at Jaguar are coming in a couple of days, so I really need to finish this other book and get it to my beta readers.

Okay, got to run!!! Have a wonderfully perfectly beautiful day. (By the way, you’re not supposed to have a bunch of modifiers in a sentence like that. Do I care? No! I’m going to have one of those days too!)

Variations on an Old Barn–And Heart of the Wolf–updated version is out!

The one photo is the original, captured at an angle as we were driving past on a bumpy road at 75 mph, bleak sky. I added a sky for mood on one of the shots. Using Topaz Studio, I created a black and white, painted, and HDR version also. The painted could have so many styles. I kind of liked the HDR because it emphasized the clouds hovering above the old barn.  But just adding clouds in the first one, really added to the feel of the picture. And then going from gloomy day to gloomier night…fun!

That’s just like writing too. Starting with a plain scene and giving it mood.

Heart of the Wolf comes out today. The re-release!!!

I’m in limbo, waiting to hear on if the next 3 books were picked up by my publisher and at the same time, I’m working on edits for All’s Fair in Love and Wolf, and I’m working on 4 different stories: Demon Hunter (halfway done, book 3 in the teen Demon Guardian series), Claiming the White Bear (1/7th done, adult books are 20K longer), and two vampire books in the Blood Moon teen series (Kiss of the Vampire, book 1 is out, Blood Moon, book 2 is 3/25ths done, but book 3 is 1/4th of the way finished. Go figure. 🙂 )

But I need to concentrate on Wolf edits today. I put away all my outdoor Christmas decorations, and the indoor ones, except for the Christmas tree. I can’t move it, so I’ll probably remove the decorations and just leave the lights on it for our New Year’s dinner on Saturday and the kids can help me take it down. It’s in three pieces, and I can’t ever get it apart by myself.

And I played some of Divinity Original Sin2, that I received for a Christmas gift, last night, but half the screen is black periodically. I’ve tried other configurations, and nothing is working. Which means I can’t play my game until the kids come over on Saturday and see if they can figure it out. Which is fine. I need to work!

I finally get to pick up the puppies today. They were closed yesterday. 🙁 If I’d known my daughter would have picked them up for me on Christmas Eve, I could have just run over and picked them up from her afterwards. If there’s a next time, that’s what we’ll do.

Okay, really off to work! Hope you are staying warm if it’s cold there. It’s cold here. Not like up north, but it’s still cold! Hope you have a great day, moody or otherwise!
