When Finishing One Goal is Impossible…

Switch to another. Really. Do it. Don’t say, okay, do a little happy dance, because you can’t accomplish the one goal in just that instant, or pull out your hair… jump on another goal you need to accomplish! You’ll feel better. Really. You’ll get something else done.

Can you tell I’m a workaholic? Well, and have so many deadlines. If I didn’t, I’d goof off more. Maybe.

Late yesterday afternoon I was near the end of proofing Phantom Fae. I was soooooooo close to the end. I wanted to finish it and send it off to the narrator so she could update it. I wanted to be able to relisten to the changes and approve it, pay her, and have another project hanging over my head–finished, done, completed. Because I have a stack of other projects I HAVE to get done. Soon. On deadline.

So what does it do? Storms. Thunder. Lightning. Pouring rain. The works. My computer kept flickering on and off, but I was so desperate to finish. I finally finished, went to send her the final changes, no Internet.

Okay, so that’s fine. I have 8 bears stacked up waiting for me to work on them. Though I was multi-tasking when I was listening to the audiobooks, jointing, then stuffing bears at the same time.

But I still had a ton of work to do on them. Still do. But they’re getting closer to being done. This morning, still trying to get the one book finished up to approve. The narrator hasn’t pressed a button to allow me to approve it yet. The other is DONE. And this morning, I’m working on marketing materials for one of the books I need to write. Still clueless about the other, but I’m making some headway on this one. 🙂 But wait, what color was Everett’s eyes and hair? And will the missing cub be a female or male? Always the questions.

Have a terrific TGIF!!!

I’m off to have some more fun with goals. What about you?

Oh, and news!!!! For the first time ever, two of my wolf books are going into audio! Can’t wait!!!

Niall, a royal member of the Denkar, aka the dark fae, is visiting South Padre Island when he catches a winged fae painting graffiti on a wall on the island claimed by his people.

Between freeing her from his people’s dungeon, her own tower, and fighting a knight in her honor, he wonders if he’s lost his mind over one beautiful winged fae–when she’s betrothed to his cousin!

Mage of Monrovia

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia, Book 2


An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.

Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.

Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.

And that’s the beginning of the trouble.

First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia,<br />                                     Book 2 - Terry Spear

We have storms coming in, so just want to share these shots before I lose my Internet! We had storms yesterday and that did happen. Oh, oh, oh, I finished, well, almost finished Her Highland Hero. It’s done, or nearly done…still trying to figure out that perfect last *sigh* moment and then it’s done. Then I have to edit it and send it to beta readers. So excited!  Next project is the novella for the Kissing the Highlander anthology with four other authors coming out in February.

He bounded into the courtyard and I grabbed my camera to take pictures. Forget that I was nearing the end of writing Her Highland Hero. A bunny was waiting for me to take a glamor shot!
When I went outside, he crouched down in the jasmine, just watching me.

Then he got a little bolder, and I got a little bolder.

He decided it was time to leave, but he paused at the gate and I took another couple of pictures, then went inside to watch him. He stayed there for a while, then took off. I hadn’t seen them in a while, so it was fun seeing him.

Oh, and a bit of wild in the wildlife…

I saw a lizard sitting on top of this post. I often see birds sitting up there and I was thinking he was sitting in a dangerous spot. Wouldn’t a bird be tempted to grab him? Well, I had just grabbed my camera and quickly took a shot right before a bird swooped down from the roof and headed straight for that pillar. The lizard scrambled down the backside of the pillar and the bird dove down anyway. Did the lizard make it? I hope so. 🙂

lizard on post

Then the other day, I had the bugman spraying for bugs. He said that the yellow jackets were really bad. I usually have a terrible problem with them. But I told him I hadn’t been. He looked at me like I was crazy. Said he found a big nest of them on the back building.  But I really haven’t had a huge problem with them like I usually do.

He knocked down a small nest that they had been building in the corner by one of the windows where I have my computer. But as soon as he left, they began building there again. And I keep seeing birds, sparrows, I think landing in the gutter, where one grabbed a bug, and they have been landing on the waterspout pipe at the bend in it and I really watched what was going on. I am writing on Her Highland Hero, so I was really trying to concentrate. But I got curious. The bird dove for the yellow jacket’s nest. I can’t actually see the nest from this window, but the bird flew toward it, wings flapping, then he ended back up on the drain spout pipe. And within seconds, he went after the nest again. That time, he got the yellow jacket. Later, I checked, and the yellow jackets haven’t returned.

What’s interesting about this is that I didn’t believe that feeding the birds seeds would help me with my insect problem. But what happened is that they have flocked to my yard as a bird haven, and eat the seeds, AND eat the bugs. Every morning, I have a feast of huge beetles on the driveway that are attracted by the security light at night. Everything from the sparrows to the cardinals will feast on the big beetles.

So if you need a natural insect repellant, the birds are great!

And soon, if I don’t keep getting distracted by the world around me, Her Highland Hero will be done! 🙂

Storms are grumbling, and I’m thrilled. We so needed the rain. And if I didn’t have so many other books to write right now, I’d surely love to work on one of the vampire books in progress. 🙂  Perfect vampire weather.

Have a super great day!

Debbie’s Book Blog Review

5 Apples!!!

Terry Spear takes readers back to Silver Town in the thirteenth book in the Heart of the Wolf series. Readers of the series will love this very original addition to the series featuring a wolf/coyote hybrid. Spear once again entrances readers with her action packed, romantic writing. This paranormal romance has plenty of suspense and willhave readers on the edge of their collective seats, as Tom Silver, youngest of the Silver brothers finally finds a woman he can’t live without. A great addition to this wonderful series.

What I liked:

Thirteen books into this series and it is still just as exciting and memorable as the every first book. That is remarkable! I usually think that a series needs to end somewhere around ten books because at that point the overall story arc’s are starting to lag. Not so, with this series. The Heart of the Wolf series was one of the very first paranormal series’ that I ever read and I have honestly loved every single book. Spear has a bag of tricks that most author’s can’t even guess at. Because of her military background, her wolf books featuring SEAL’s are fantastic, because of her Scottish background her highland wolf books are spectacular, and because of her impeccable research into wolf behavior and dynamics, every single book she writes about werewolves has a ring of authenticity that is hard to deny. Basically, she’s a phenomenal writer. Whether it’s wolves or fae, or jaguars, she has the write stuff!

Tom Silver has been one of my favorites from the very beginning of this series. He is brother to the alpha of his pack and that comes with a lot of responsibility. He is a protector. He looks after Darien’s interests whether it is in pack matters or business and he even takes on the role as an enforcer in some cases. I was so happy to see him finally get his story. Spear has done such a wonderful job of fleshing out her characters in every book they show up in, that readers by this time, really feel like they know Tom and the kind of woman it will take to make him stand up and take notice. Spear does not disappoint with Elizabeth.

****************

I love this review! One of the things I always really strive for in my books is a uniqueness for each book. They can’t be the same old tired plot, setting, and characters. I’m working on book 16 now!!! So, yes, 14 and 15 have been turned in.

But in each, I have to make them different. When I first started, I would be asked in interviews: What makes this book different from all the rest? And before I write the next book, I do the same with myself to try to make them the most unique story from any other.

Even with the Cougar series, same thing. I wanted something based on what I could envision cougar shifters to be like and worked in their cougar personalities along with their human qualities.

So, I’m having trouble starting A SEAL Wolf for Sale, which is not unusual. Because I have to strive for: the perfect setting, which I had selected and in the computer crash and then having to write Jaguar Pride, I lost my links and the location I had decided on. So I had to go back to the drawing board and find a new location. I have Montana for the story. They have forests, lakes, wolves. 🙂

Now, I have to start with action/adventure/romance/mystery/wolves… all within the first few pages–first meeting, wolf showing early on–to show that wolf shifter part of the equation, but no slow starts. Need conflict.

So I’ve thought of a few different ways to open it, but it’s not working for me. Need something else. Characters have to be heroic. Just all kinds of stuff. 🙂 Once I hit upon the right idea, then I’ll be off and running. But my editor called with edits on A Highland Wolf Christmas. 🙁 And then I got two more bear orders, just got home from a visit to my daughter’s place, so trying to get unpacked.

And the brainstorming for SEAL continues.

Plus, I’ve been contacting reviewers to review Cougar’s Mate. 🙂

And I’ve just put The Dark Fae on sale for 99 cents! It will take a while for it to start showing up at the sale price.

 

Ever wonder why body parts mysteriously fall asleep? Where you put those pesky keys? Why you stumble over nothing in your path? Welcome to the world of fae…

The Dark Fae

(The World of Fae, Book 1)

Category: Fiction » Young adult or teen » Romance » Fantasy
Alicia has planned a vacation at South Padre Island with her girlfriend Cassie in forever. But just as they’re enjoying a day on the beach, here comes a dark fae to spoil their holiday, except only she can see what he truly is. Alicia has no idea how upside down her world can turn with a chance meeting with one of the dark fae from the royal house of the Denkar.
Alicia’s always known she’s different–that she can recognize the mischievous fae when they show up to “play” with the humans. Only now she’s faced with one highly annoyed dark fae and she’s certain he knows the truth about her. She can see him, which means her life is forfeit.Add to that, his sister arrives, who wants to play, too. And their mother, the queen of the Denkar, will want Alicia’s head, once she learns what Alicia can do.And all because Alicia was attempting to rescue her friend, Cassie, on their beach excursion at South Padre Island, from the wicked fae. Now, Alicia has really gone and done it–and she’s thinking she should have let the fae have his fun. Her friend’s broken heart would be a lot easier to deal with, than Alicia losing her life.But it is too late for regrets. As soon as she threw the soda at the dark fae’s chest, she had declared war on the fae. And he is happy to take up the challenge.

Highland Rake on Sale!

Highland Rake

I’m doing a BIG promotion for the new release of The Highlander, 5th book in the series. So this is Highland Rake, 3rd book. I have NEVER put these Highland books on sale.  So for one week only, starting today and running through Oct 27, Highland Rake will be on sale for 99 cents. 🙂

Dougald MacNeill is the next to youngest MacNeill brother and he’s not about to settle down, until Lady Alana Cameron is placed squarely in his lap…and then, the trouble begins.

When Dougald finds Alana roaming the heather on the MacNeill lands, he takes her in hand to see his laird brother James at Craigly Castle to determine her fate. But who has sent her there and why? Her uncle, laird of the Cameron clan, that has warred with the MacNeills for years, has made a marriage arrangement with another clan and now that is even at stake.

Having witnessed her father’s death, and even believing he had returned her home when all along he had been dead, Alana discovers she has the gift, or curse, of seeing the newly departed and sometimes those who should have long ago passed over. Her own deceased brother continues to plague her, the rake, and now another, who is very much of the flesh, Dougald MacNeill, has her thinking marrying a rake might just have its benefits. Dougald’s sister, who is one feisty ghost, has offered to help Alana keep Dougald in line if he thinks of even straying.

But who sent Alana on a fool’s errand in the first place to remove her from the Cameron’s lands and set her squarely in Dougald’s care, and who really killed her father and her brother, and what has it all to do with Alana? Will she and Dougald learn the truth before it is too late?

My thoughts on A SEAL Wolf Christmas

What I love most about Terry Spear’s book is that you don’t feel lost if you read the series books out of order. I also loved seeing all the cameos of characters in previous Heart of the Wolf books. And, of course I loved the HEA and was surprised that a second HEA was found in the supporting characters. 
 
This book is a rollercoaster ride of mystery, intrigue, and wolfy love set to the backdrop of an Oregon winter. There is so much action going on and so many different plot twists. Many interwoven mysteries blended with well-developed characters and super sexy wolves. Terry Spear is a masterful storyteller. I loved every page of it!
 
I received a Net Galley copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions are my own.
Rating: 5 Stars
 
**A quick note, if you would like to purchase A SEAL Wolf Christmas, Amazon has the paperback on sale for $4.79! Not sure how long the sale will last so get your copy today! Link below!**

Thanks, Elizabeth!!! So what do you think? Are their more wolves on the way????
Happy Saturday!!!
