Pretty in Purple–Fairy Art

Getting a slow start this morning. I was working on edits on Lachlan’s story until late. I’m up to chapter 9 on edits. The book is now at 89K.

We’re having a 4th of July dinner tonight and kids are off to a 4th of July party on Monday. I get to stay home and work on the story! So off to work I go for now!

Have a delightful day!!!

Relative Danger–Now in Print!

I loved Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes when I was growing up. But we had some family murder attempts for money also, greed, a shady lawyer who was a relative, just all kinds of cool things to think about while I was writing this story. Nope. You won’t see the real murder attempts in this story, but I have sprinkled them through others to protect the guilty. The shady lawyer? Yep!

Relative-Danger-Nook

CoverInked did the cover. Love it!

Murder, mayhem, and family secrets abound when some beneficiaries of an insurance magnate’s last will and testament plot to get their money early. During a week of togetherness orchestrated by her not-quite-departed uncle’s will, headstrong heiress McKenna Sutherland has to team up with resort manager Thomas Hampton, the man who stole her heart five years ago, or she’ll lose her inheritance—to him! McKenna and Thomas need to uncover the villain among a cast of colorful characters who have joined them for the week, each of whom has a stake in the ultimate outcome—Uncle Sheldon’s money, and loads of it. Thomas’s job is to keep Sheldon’s faked death a secret, while he makes sure McKenna isn’t next on the killer’s hit list. With everything around them a lie, can Thomas regain McKenna’s love and trust before it’s too late?

I already walked each dog this morning and it’s muggy! It was only 85 yesterday so I managed to get some more weeding done. After I cool down from the two walks, I’ll tackle some more weeding this morning. I’m sure it’s going to heat up again. We had a little rain, but not enough to register in my rain gauge I don’t think.

I’m up to chapter 15 on Deadly Fortunes, have 6 more chapters to proof. Then it’ll be ready, but I have to wait on the new cover and then I can republish it.

I started the second in the series, but when I couldn’t sell to anyone (you know, before indie was an option), I put it on hold and then never got back to it. One of these days, I will!

I bought four more covers. What was I thinking? They’re gorgeous though. I just need to write faster. lol

I need to finish editing Deadly Fortunes and then finish writing Lachlan’s story! They’ll be asking for the synopsis soon and I haven’t finished the story.

Have a super wonderful day!

Fairy of the Green Woods

When I create these, I used lots of layers and they just keep building one on top of another. The green flower is a photo of a zinnia I had taken. And the butterfly, adjusted colors to match the artwork, was also a photo I’d taken.

I finished proofing Relative Danger. I’m waiting on the cover artist’s print cover. Barb of CoverInked did a lovely job on the ebook cover. I’ve eyed it for a while now once I first saw it. It just embodies so much of the story. I realized I didn’t have it in print, so once she sends the cover to me, I’ll publish it.

We were supposed to have storms from 4 am to 4 pm and coastal flooding, but they’ve been wrong every day this week, so we shall see.

I’m back to working on Lachlan’s story.

Hope you all have a thoroughly lovely day!

Polar Bear Art Fun to Cool Off

It was 106 heat index. I needed to play with something nice and cool 🙂

My daughter is at a conference, so I’m helping out with my granddaughter. My SIL called to say baby has a fever and bad congestion, so I told him I’d keep my granddaughter 2 more nights instead of 1 more night. We were playing chicken foot dominoes last night, then bath time and story time and bedtime.

We took both dogs for a walk in the morning, spent a couple of hours at the pool, had a great time!

She’ll go to school today and I’ll be able to work some more on edits on Wolf Takes the Lead. I’m at chapter 20. Ten more to go so hope to make a big dent in it until I pick her up from school and she stays overnight again.

Hope you all have a grand day!! I’m getting stuff done, but having fun too!

A Little Whimsy on a Hot Summer’s Day

I like creating “realistic” scenes, rather than just a hodgepodge of art scraps because I’m a storyteller at heart. So this one I used Oscraps backgrounds and Foxey Squirrel’s goat, my clouds, the girl I created with Daz3D and the Capricorn mermaid goat, piglet and his toy piggy are also Daz3D. 🙂

I managed to get to 87,000 words on Lachlan’s story. I wrote the new scene, had to do tons of research for it, which is always fun because I learn new things, but it took all day. But I also figured out where to put the new conflict scene, just need to write it now.

I’m off to do edits and write and hope you all have a lovely weekend!! Don’t you wish you could find this idyllic spot to enjoy?

Dolphin Art and a Composition

Dolphin Art out of South Padre Island. I took the picture of the dolphin art, then used Daily Textures and waves from Oscraps to create the composite.

Okay, we’re back to our routine. Little one is here and we’ve got a million things to do!

Have a super fun day!

Beach Bums of South Padre Island

And then there was the dangerous wildlife we had to avoid, blue and purple flags warning everyone, and red flags were flying for strong currents.

Portuguese Man-of-War

The girl under the umbrella next to us fished out 2 more while she’d been in the water. I picked one up when I was a young girl vacationing with my parents in Florida, thought it was a purple balloon, went into shock, hands swelled up 3 times their normal size, ran a fever and chills and of course, it hurt lots!

We had a blast at South Padre Island! It was cooler than home, which is getting to 106 heat index daily!

Off to work. I’ve been pulling out tomato plants that flower and never fruit. The other tomato plants next to them need the water.

Have a lovely day!

Playing Around with Scrap Art and Daz 3D Figures

I think she’s a Genesis or Genesis 2 character. I love some of their sweetness and some of the outfits are truly beautiful. And of course I love the horse! 🙂

Picking lots of orange tomatoes and sweet bell peppers. Very hot, going to be over a 100 most of the week. I’m off to walk before it’s too hot.

Still working on the story. Have 85K and still going.

Have a lovely day!!!

Green Zinnia in Art

I had shared the green zinnia flower earlier but then I bought this new texture from Daily Textures and loved how it mixed together so well. Also added Gilded from Daily Texture.

Still editing on the book, still trying to figure out what will give my characters more dimension. I’ve gone through a million scenarios. Had to take care of the baby for half the day, which isn’t conducive to work, lol. But this morning I was thinking, what if she had a secret? Guilt?

So still thinking!

I’m off to do the edits and I bought a new cover that just went on sale for an old book that I loved, so I’m going to try and get that up today or by the end of the week at least. I need to reread the book and see if I need to make any changes.

Hope you enjoy your day!

Purple–One Color Art Challenge

6 photos, one main color, title, and voila! Naturally, I went for purple. Love purple flowers. I could have added more if they would have allowed it for the challenge! Purple Magic crepe myrtle, purple irises, zinna…yep. A ton more!

I managed my word count yesterday, but still way behind. Yet, I have only 17K left to get to word count. Added some more conflict. Which changes a few things… I have to think: from A to B nothing happened. Ho-hum, usual day, spice it up, add some conflict!

Have a great day. I’ve got to get to editing and writing for the day.
