Storms Make for Great Vampire Days…and Nights

 

We had stormy-looking weather, barely any chance of rain, and it poured. Yay! The sunset was spectacular! It truly looked like a vampire day…and night!

One of the covers I had to redo for my vampire series, was The Siren’s Lure. I loved the first one I had, but it was a stock photo that I found was popping up all over other authors’ books, so I had to create my own.

I had to put aside Silver Town Wolf Christmas for a day because I had to work on final edits for You Had Me at Jaguar. They’re due Friday, and I have to take care of baby on Wed and Fri, so today I’ll finish it up and turn it in. I have 3 more chapters and a prologue to go. And then I’ll be adding the edits in that I’ve done on the paper copy of Silver Town Wolf Christmas.

I can’t remember why I started writing vampire novellas, but I did, and so this is one of them!

Siren's Lure new cover1 with font 1000

The Siren’s Lure, a novella

A vampire wishes upon a falling star and ends up with more than he bargained for. When he attempts to rescue a woman in distress, he soon learns she’s not quite human and not a huntress–or at least like any he’s ever known. That’s when the seduction begins–but who is seducing whom?

Tristina isn’t a huntress in the normal sense. Before meeting the vampire who would rescue her from danger, she never thought anyone could love her for herself. Now, just maybe she’s found the right man for her.

Sardis wants nothing more than a vacation from his ponderous role as prince of the New York vampire clans, but ends up having anything but a peaceful time while staying at a beach resort when he meets the most enticing siren. Trouble doesn’t even begin to describe the new world he finds himself in as he tries to seduce her, and he falls under her siren’s spell instead.

Sights in San Diego

Some fun sightings in San Diego–gnarled trees along the waterfront, a go-cart driving down the street, and the reflection of the sunset and the marina in the glass of the hotel.

These were taken a couple of years ago, and I haven’t ever shared.

Hope you have a fun day!

I’ve been struggling all morning with my computer to try and post this. First, WordPress wouldn’t come up to allow a post. And I’ve just had trouble with everything. I was having the same issues last night, so gave up on trying to post. So here ’tis!

It’s FREE!!! FREE!!! FREE!!!

I’m behind on my writing word count. Confession is good for the soul, right???? Okay, then come the excuses. This book came up free, and I was scrambling to get the word out. 🙂 I did manage 1600 words yesterday, but I’m editing, not writing whole new scenes, and that means the book is getting better, but it’s not growing by leaps and bounds like when I just write new scenes. So that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

🙂 You’re allowed to make up stories too!

As soon as I post this, I’m off to catch up on other stuff and then write!!!

Sunrise this morning was so bright red/pink. Yesterday sunrise was light ribbons of pink. And last night a subtle warmth.

Thanks to everyone who has shared about the free book. My publisher gives away free books like NEVER, so it’s a big deal. This is for ebooks, only. Just to be clear!!! Wouldn’t it be great if they were print books too?

Have a wonderfully, fun and exciting and adventurous day–in a good way!

Storm Clouds


I love storm clouds. They’re moody, change the world, artistic, and beautiful.

Off to write!

Have a lovely Saturday! 🙂

Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve I was flying high! So I took some pictures with my cell phone. Snow-covered ground. Sunset and the full moon and a jet trail. A glimpse of the ground in between the clouds, and the massive storm front ahead. It looked like the ground ahead was covered in snow. Captured a rainbow in the window. 🙂 Oh, and on the snow one, I thought the “contours” on the hills were like art.

Played my new game last night and got myself killed so many times, I stopped to type up the notes I wrote on the plane. I wrote 2,000 words on the trip home, so not too shabby. At 1 am, I called it a night! Once I finish typing the notes, I think I’ll be at 20K on Demon Hunter. It’s the third in the teen Demon Hunter series.

Kids are sick, so no New Year’s Day activities. I’m still typing notes, starting to put away Christmas decorations, and will most likely be playing with more pictures!! And writing!

My goal? Put away my Christmas decorations so I can concentrate on writing, oh, edits. Darn, have to work on those too for All’s Fair in Love and Wolf. lol

Oh, oh, and Heart of the Wolf comes out tomorrow. The re-release!!! That’s the problem with the holidays being on top of everything else. Or maybe, that everything else is on top of the holidays. Yeah, that’s it. 🙂

 

B&N

Are you starting to work on your goals tomorrow? Or today? Or skipping goals all together???

Grilling Ribs in the Snow…

That’s hardcore, right? The sunset was beautiful last night also. 🙂 And the turkey for Christmas was delicious. That’s in the bag. I forgot to cook mine in a bag for Thanksgiving, but it still was perfectly divine.

I need to make one during the year. They’re just great to eat year round. Why wait until a holiday to enjoy one? The turkey was at the wildlife reserve. He is lucky. He’s safe from being a meal for the holidays!

The ribs were superb! Okay, we’ve had internet trouble, my son’s girlfriend is sick, but my son and I are going to try to make it to some museums today. I keep saying that!

But really, we are. 🙂 But if we don’t, we’ll have fun anyway!

Have a lovely day!

Sunset Highlighting Fall Colors

I had to grab a shot! Or…three.

I’m off to finish edits on My Highlander, and need to photograph gingerbread houses this afternoon! 🙂 Hope some will turn out.

I saw these trees had FINALLY turned and the sun was setting, highlighting them and I had to take a picture. 🙂

Okay, off to work! Have a lovely sunlit day!

Loving Scotland

Love Scotland. This is an ancient building in Scotland, a rainbow, and on the Isle of Skye, a momma and her calf trailing behind at sunset. And of course the best part, a couple of Highlanders to love.

Next up! My Highlander!

The house was hot, but it’s cool out this morning, so windows are open, fans going, cooling off the stuffy house, nature’s way!

I worked on My Highlander last night, 500 words, yay!

But I had to write up the synopsis for Billionaire Wolf Christmas because I’ll soon be asked for marketing materials. It doesn’t take me long to forget the details of a book because I’ll be wrapped up in a new one, and I’ll always be doing edits on another. So that was my priority last night. Still have to do more–this is the fun part–giving some details for the cover! Taking a 107,000 book and turning it into a 50, 250, and 2,000-word synopsis is not easy!!! But they need it for marketing, so it has to be done.

Hope everyone has a fantastic day! I’m done! I’m done! I’m done!!!

Daytona Beach, Setting Sun in Feb

I hope it’s still standing after the storms.

I used RAW filter adjustments to change the color to more teal and orange, and then I thought I’d see if a final filter using Topaz Studio would make a difference. One had clouds and when I clicked on it, that was it. Then I added some more light rays on the clouds and water.

If you have Photoshop, this is a neat filter program and for now, Topaz Studio is free.

Blue Skies After Hurricane Harvey

The devastation and the cleanup will be a nightmare for so many areas of Houston and the surrounding cities. We’re still under 13 flood warnings, but the water is receding from creeks and rivers and roadways.

We are expected to have another bout of rain on Monday and Tuesday, but hopefully with some dry days in between, the water levels will have a chance to go down.

Gloomy skies were returning and we have dark clouds this morning, even though we only have a chance of 20%. After all the rain, they’re not welcome.

Now the cleanup begins. It’s back to the 90s tomorrow and the next few days–I’m afraid mosquitoes will be out in force too.

Hope the areas where the storm has moved off to remain safe.
