Happy Thanksgiving!! & Warrior Elf Out Now!

Also Warrior Elf is available and I turned in Roxie’s story!

Rina is a warrior elf from a long class of shadow warrior elves on the planet Xibos, a world populated by elves, griffons, dragons, giants, pixies, fairies, trolls, merfolk, centaurs, and other fantastical creatures. They’ve recently had visitors from a whole other planetary system who call Xibos a primitive elf world. But Rina doesn’t believe they are a primitive people in the least as she fights for right and though she earns much gold from her work, she also takes on cases where there is no hope of reward—just because it’s something she must do. Fighting is in her blood. And she has a magic trick up her leather sleeve. She is all about work and no play, so when she takes on the mission of rescuing a princess from a tower—if she even really needs rescuing—Rina ends up meeting a champion elf knight—who also rights wrongs. But he works for the king of Castle Grande of the Wild Meadowlands elves and she’s not sure they have the princess’s best interests at heart.

Artur serves as the king’s champion from a long class of champions of the Wild Meadowlands elves when he encounters a warrior elf fighting dark arts knights all on her own. He watches in fascination, until he eliminates the last one, and he’s not sure what to think of her. Does she have the princess’s welfare in mind? Or some darker purpose? He admires Rina, but he doesn’t trust her. Yet it appears they have a common enemy and until that’s resolved, he’ll watch her back and hope she watches his!

There’s an issue with Barnes and Noble’s website for the book, so I figure it won’t be resolved until after the holidays. It’s available everywhere else now though!

This looks like a delightful place to be today! I’m going to try and put out my Christmas lights if it’s not storming. We have fog and storms scheduled for a little later. I might just work on Bear in Mind.

Hope you all are having a great day wherever in the world you are!

Little Wolf and His Plush Companion

Still editing Warrior Elf. I hope to have it done today.

It’s supposed to be a cold, rainy day today. We need the rain, so that’s fine. I just don’t want to drive in it. This is supposed to be our coldest day. Then it’s going to start getting up to 60s and 70s during the week. Everyone is still sick at my daughter’s house. I’m hoping they feel better today.

I’m off to work.

Have a super day!

A Gray Wolf in Omaha

Wolf at the Omaha wildlife reserve.

Well, the Harry Potter birthday cake was cancelled. Woohoo!

I was sent way out of my way to reach the medical clinic–Google Map, ugh. I finally found it right next to my grocery store. It’s beyond it so I never go that way or I would have seen it. My insurance card arrived with the wrong doctor’s name on it, BUT I managed to get it changed and have a reference number, so it’s all been fixed as far as insurance goes. Yeah!

I made it to the school for lunch with my granddaughter and we had a super time. Two more mothers told me their kids have been sick with fevers, one a boy in kindergarten, but not in my granddaughter’s class. And both mothers have 3 year olds who had been running fevers.

Now, both my grandchildren had had fevers for a couple of days, but that was about a couple of weeks or more ago. So was it the same as these kids have? Or not? And now my daughter has been running a 102 fever for the last couple of days. We’re supposed to have her birthday and Thanksgiving on Sunday, so we might have to hold off until Monday or later, maybe even Sunday after next. She has had her flu shot and covid booster. It’s not covid. A different strain of flu?

My other beta reader finished Roxie’s story so tomorrow is dedicated to making those changes and then proofing the whole book and turning it in. My other beta reader finished Warrior Elf and is turning the edits over to me tomorrow, so I’ll be working on those. And I managed to add 2,000 more words to Bear in Mind–now at 41K.

I’m off to get busy with edits. If we have Thanksgiving and the birthday tomorrow, I’ll have to clean house and wrap some birthday presents too!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Being the Villain in Your Own Story–Accidentally

So I ordered a Harry Potter cake for my daughter for her birthday to do something really fun and special for her and her husband tells me after the fact that she doesn’t want a cake. Period. Ugh.

I have a doctor’s appointment this morning early, so I hope I can cancel on the cake after that, (it’s not supposed to be ready until 3 pm tomorrow), but if I can’t, I’ll just eat some of it and throw out the rest. I changed doctors, never had gone to the other one on my insurance, so I get a call from the clinic staff asking if I changed the doctors with my insurance. I told them I had. The insurance rep had told me to wait until Dec 1 to schedule with them. The LPN I saw who works for the insurance told me not to delay because I’ve delayed for 4 years on some routine tests and she said my insurance number won’t have changed. Sooooo, I halfway suspect that I will show up and they’ll tell me my insurance won’t pay for the visit and I’ll have to wait until December. But then I’ll just go to the grocery store and cancel the cake, or try to. Win-win.

And then the schedule was messed up yesterday on the lunch schedule at the school as kids were celebrating for Thanksgiving early in case people didn’t come to school on Friday, I guess. So I told my daughter and granddaughter I would come today instead and her husband didn’t get the word, granddaughter forgot, and so she was really upset because her daddy didn’t make her lunch, she didn’t order any, and she was crying, looking for me. Her teacher sent her into the line to get the school meal so she didn’t go without lunch.

It seems I’m the villain these days. How did that happen?????

Anyway, I finally managed to get 1,000 words written on Bear in Mind yesterday. I was doing a little Christmas and Thanksgiving shopping, and working on a Christmas book trailer video, so the day sort of ran away from me.

Hope you are doing all the “right” things and not being the villain in your story. 🙂 But, hey, I really was trying to do some right things! 🙂 Have a super fun day! Hopefully mine will be too and I’ll get some things sorted out. Fun lunch with granddaughter, appointments made for tests I’ve been putting off, and one HP birthday cake order DELETED. I’ll let you know how it goes as the saga continues, okay???

I finished proofing Warrior Elf yesterday. It’s off to two of my beta readers. Thanks so much, ladies!!! It’s the holidays and I know everyone’s busy with holiday preparations.

I need to begin working on two big bears for a Christmas order, but I think I’ll wait until after our Thanksgiving and birthday celebrations on Sunday. I won’t be picking up my granddaughter from school all week, so I can concentrate on getting that done and maybe getting a lot more done on Bear in Mind. Maybe even finishing it? Not sure. I need to proof Roxie’s story and turn it in to my publisher.

Hope you all have a fun-filled rest of the week! I’m off to get my writing day started!

A Different Kind of Request

I had a different kind of request yesterday–to create a video for a fan for her birthday. The lady who asked me to do it is asking other authors also since the birthday girl loves to read. It was such a cute idea, I did it and then I had to create one for my daughter’s birthday, though she’ll get it on her birthday, not during the early celebration. Since we’re having Thanksgiving on Sunday–reminder to self to defrost the turkey starting on Friday morning–we’ll do her birthday then too.

So while I was creating that video, I was thinking about how I needed to change out my Facebook heading also. I came up with this. I think it’s pretty cool, don’t you? I need to make one for my other page too.

And, miracle of miracles, I actually got my 2,000 words for the day before yesterday, and my 2,000 for yesterday done on Bear in Mind. I didn’t think I’d get more than 500 words done total, with all the other stuff I was creating. It’s at 39K now with 31K to go! Woohoo! I love the downhill slide where I’m wrapping things up.

It really has all to do with coming up with new scene ideas though. Without them, I would still be stuck.

Okay, I’ve got to get busy. Hope your day is swell. 🙂

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Looking forward to turkey!

Okay, so the eye doctor put me on antibiotics and I’ll see her again today and Monday. It still feels bad, so hoping it’s going to be better soon. Going to walk in the Veteran’s Day elementary school parade in just a little bit.

I have a couple of bears to make for Christmas to send to Hawaii also, but I need for my eye to feel better first.

I finally reached 32K on Bear in Mind. Behind because I’ve only been able to write a couple of hundred words per day because my eye just can’t handle it.

Have a super lovely day!!!

Humble Bumblebee on a Zinnia

Even as the flowers fade, they are covered with butterflies and bumblebees so I hate to pull them up, though my neighbors might wish I did. 🙂

I’m about to go to the eye doctor. Wish me luck!

And have a beautiful day!

Steampunk Owl

I wish I were a wise old owl and didn’t do dumb things. So my dogs were going nuts at the back fence, scratching to get at a neighbor dog. And I was trying to swat them away, not really able to reach them behind the pine tree, and got scratched in the eye by a pine needle. It’s awful.

But despite that, my granddaughter and I had a great day. We took a walk to get the mail, then she wanted to feed the turtles, so we walked to two different ponds, then we read books together, did her words lesson, I had her draw two turkeys, one for me to color and one for her to color. She colored both. lol She did several coloring pages and even her very first crosswords puzzle. We play tic tac toe several times. Then we played chicken foot dominoes and she won, and Crazy Eights and I won. We were on our second Crazy Eight game when her momma came for her. So we’ll do it again later.

In the meantime, I need to go in and have my eye checked out. It was awful last night and this morning.

Have a delightful day!

World Jellyfish Day

They’re so beautiful, unless you’re swimming with them. This one was gracefully doing ballet moves in an aquarium in Omaha, perfect for viewing, but keeping my distance!

I’m off to get a turkey for Thanksgiving, (turkey shortage too) and having early so kids can see the other parents for the holiday, which means free time to write! And I’m going to early voting. Sometimes I miss it, but I have to take care of my granddaughter on the regular voting day, so have to do this early!

Have a terrific day! It’s already hot here today at 5:30 a.m. What happened to our fall weather?
