Bears and Books!

 

Wendy Witch Bear (SOLD) and Wild Thing

So I wrote 4,000 on the new novella, but then when I was reading it over late last night, I knew my hero was way too wimpy. I was going to use the male nurse from Destiny of the Wolf, he was a new hire and nothing is known about him. But then he is in Wolf Fever, a few stories later, and he is protective of the heroine, in a way that says he’d like to date her. So he was scratched off my list for being the hero of the novella this early on. Would anyone remember? YES! Some of my fans re-read the stories in a sub-series every time there’s a new release. They remember all the details way better than I do.

Next.

So then I had two secret admirers who sent flowers to the heroine in the clinic. One of them could be revealed! So that’s where I got my wimpy hero. NOT working. So rethinking it again.

What about a receptionist? Okay, so the receptionist at the wolf-run clinic died in Destiny of the Wolf. She was a bad wolf. Good on her. And so far, in Wolf Fever, nothing much is mentioned about her–just receptionist. It’s not that I forget to name people, but I have so many characters, I don’t want to confuse readers.

In Jake Silver’s story, Dreaming of the Wolf, no mention of a receptionist. In CJ Silver’s story, A Silver Wolf Christmas, no mention of a receptionist. Woohoo, I think I have my heroine. Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply, Eric Silver’s story, no receptionist.  Between a Wolf and a Hard Place, no receptionist.  And in Silver Wolves Making Spirits Bright, Peter Jorgenson and Meghan MacTire, no receptionist. Yay!

So I have my heroine, the newly created crossbow competitor, prior army, and the hero is a mystery man and now I can make him all alpha. I loved her role in the beginning, so I don’t need to change any of that. I had that he was a green beret and that he’d seen her briefly, two ships passing in the night, and that part I liked. I just need to revise the opening a lot. And then I just need to finish writing the story! I did get the bear off the ice floe and I finished a bear last night…so moving right along…

And that’s how it all begins…it’s easier, sometimes, just creating new characters, a new world, no boundaries. It can be more of a challenge fitting characters into already created worlds, but challenges are the name of the game.

Okay, off to get busy!!!

Have a super wonderful day where you can meet all your challenges and come out the winner!

A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas!

I was trying to get some promo blogs written for it today, and finished the marketing materials for Silver Town Wolf Christmas and turned them in. So I made up the picture of the wolves and added it to a video I made also. And I updated my signature line on my emails.

When the wolves’ own blood betrays them, they risk their lives to find a miracle.

Wolf shifter Dr. Aidan Denali has been working day and night to find a cure for werewolves’ alarmingly sudden decline in lifespan. The key to the problem eludes him. But when Aidan grudgingly leaves his work to do some holiday shopping, he meets a remarkable she-wolf whose mysterious pack could bring him one step closer to the answer.

Dr. Holly Gray is thrilled to meet the wolf who’s been working so hard to help others. Now, it’s her turn to help him. But while their attraction is sizzling, the packs are at odds, and the danger is increasing. It’s going to take a holiday miracle for Holly and Aidan to get themselves―and their loved ones―out of this alive…

What People Are Saying About Terry Spear’s Wolf Shifters:
“Packed with adventure… Magnificently entertaining.”―RT Book Reviews TOP PICK for Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing, 4 ½ Stars
“Spear has become a master storyteller.”―RT Book Reviews for Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply, 4 Stars
“Nobody does werewolf romances like Terry Spear. The romance sizzles, the mystery intrigues, and the characters shine.”―The Royal Reviews

But now I need to update my website again. When I post about new releases coming up, some bookseller sites don’t have the links for the book, and I check periodically, nothing, and then? I forget. lol

Anyway, I’m still working on the blogs, cut out 12 bears and Sunflower Bear sold! She’s found a home in Australia. This signature line is tiny on my email, so it looks much clearer than this.

I shipped off bears yesterday, but baby’s here today, so not sure how much I’ll get done. Maybe I’ll just take off the day and play!

Have a super wonderful day!!!

Halloween Early? Christmas Early?

I’m working on another one of these little guys for an order. And I have 3 other orders to finish up. But for now, I’m trying to finish up Silver Town Wolf Christmas. I have 89K and counting.  When I get near the end, it’s hard to stop writing. The scenes are finally coming. I wrote 7,000 words yesterday. I love it when it happens like that.

So I’m off to keep writing and hopefully wrap this up soon.

Hope you have a wonderful day! I’m looking at the Halloween bear and thinking about games in the snow at Christmastime and hoping that it will be cooler here soon.

Hairy Bears and Hairy Woodpeckers

 

Finished an order of a teddy bear for a newborn, and caught a much better shot of the hairy woodpecker this time. He’s getting used to me.

Still plugging away at the story. 35K done, 45K to go.

Computer and internet giving me fits, so finishing this while I can!

Have a lovely rest of the weekend! 🙂

Ready for Valentine’s?

I was playing around with curves and such to change a picture I had taken of a peach rose into a lighter more pastel color. This rose has many colors naturally, pinks and peaches and yellows. 🙂

I write about love and HEA, so I’m always ready for the hearts and flowers! But more than that. The love that abounds every day. Because one day isn’t enough to say I love you.

Okay, off to write!!!

More Snow Pictures in Spring!

These are Havanese tracks in the snow. 🙂 See? I can track a Havanese, just like that. *Snaps Fingers*

Snow on the fountain–captured after most of the snow melted. Would have liked to get one earlier before it had, but was taking care of baby. Snow comes here anywhere from once every 15-30 years, sooooo, that’s why it’s such a big event. I know for those in snow country, they’re amused. But some around here have never seen snow before!

I’ve been in a blizzard skiing, not good, but it came up and I had to come down. Do you know how hard it is to ski when you can’t make out the horizon? Everything looks…white. There’s no mountain, no slope, just…white.  I was by myself too. Not my fault. But I took more spills trying to come down off the mountain when I couldn’t see the slope for the snow.

And we lived in Wisconsin when I was a kid and my dad carried me to the bus stop because the snow was so high. Was in a blizzard in Amarillo, Texas, well, several, trying to make my way home from work to Canyon, and couldn’t tell where the centerline was, the shoulder, or what I was really driving on. I was in another in St. Louise for Thanksgiving one year on my way to share Thanksgiving with my boss’s family when I was on Army duty, and really didn’t think I was going to make  it.

We always built a snow fort, had snow fights, and built a snowman in Oklahoma, couldn’t get out of my parking lot in Maryland after I finally made it home in the snowstorm, and in New Jersey, didn’t think I’d make it home in the snowstorm mixed with ice, when they had early release for everyone but the military.

And yet, I see snow, and it’s a thrill. Not like if I had to live in it for several months of the year though.

I’m in Everipedia!

Okay, I’m off to finish a bear for an order! Have a great day! I’m still trying to come up with a story  idea for the polar bear story!

Am I Making You Hungry?

I will get hungry when I’m watching a show where they’re eating constantly. I’ve had readers tell me that after reading that my characters had some meal, they want to make it.

So are you hungry yet?

Juggling baby, but finished the bear yesterday.

Bubblegum Bear large 900 007

Off to juggle some more!

Grab  a bite to eat and enjoy!

Ever Feel Like You’re Stuck?

white bear with lamb and bunny and fox 900 _9884

Having fun with taking some pictures of something in a glass ball. I need an extra pair of hands! This was my first picture, but I need to play around with it some more to get it right.

If you use a glass ball to capture an image, the image is upside down, and you can just flip it right side up with 180 degree rotation.

Do you ever feel you’re stuck in a glass ball with no place to go?

Break out of your mold. Do something different. Change your routine. Live a little. Live a lot.

Off to help with the grandbaby. AND work on word count. Sometimes that is impossible. Most times that’s impossible. At 3/4ths of the way done!

Have a great breakaway day!

Wearing Green!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Yes, I have several Irish ancestors, Scottish, Viking, English, German, Welsh, French, Canadian–so just a melting pot of all good.

When I was in school, I was proud to wear the green, but it was a necessity also, if you didn’t want to get pinched!

So here’s to loving green. I love green in the landscape, makes me feel connected, dreamy, at peace.

Wearing the green–for protection.

Cover Art and Teddy Bears

Last bear order! Still need to write a Christmas blog but I was working on my next cover for the next book in the Heart of the Cougar series. I wanted something really colorful, spring-like, different from the other covers so no one would mistakenly pick up the same book twice. It has conflict right away, and it will have mystery, suspense, humor, romance, just like all the other books. 🙂  Not sure when I will have time to write it, but it will have to be next year.

I’m back to working on Viking! Have a super great Sunday!!
