Darkland Elf, 8 Years in the Making!

See? Never give up, never surrender! Believe me, I don’t write THAT fast! I have a lot of books I start and then don’t have the time to finish right away. Even Claiming the White Bear I started last Christmas, but had to stop to write wolf and jaguar stories. Little bit, by little bit, they finally are finished.

As a motivational inspirer, Eloria’s mission is to convince her friend Persephonice to leave the elf world behind. She knows that if she can’t, she will be stuck in their world herself. But what she finds in the primitive elf world is magic and a connection she never thought possible.
Viator is a prince of the darkland elves and captures one of those extraordinary creatures like Persephonice to turn over to his father, but his people worry about the prophecy where a girl from another world would take over their kingdom. He’s not giving her up as he realizes he needs her to help fulfill his mission to make his wings transparent. And she has to see where his dangerous quests will take them both…if they can survive the trials.

I got back from the Thanksgiving trip and am playing catch up all over the place. Got some really great shots at the zoo so will share for the next few days. Put up my Christmas tree last night, some lights out front just a few minutes ago, but still need to finish decorating. Baby loved the ghost out front for Halloween and would talk to it, so I picked up a “crystal” snowman that she can talk to for out front. They don’t talk back. lol So it’s a one-sided conversation.

Despite all that we did, Thanksgiving, the zoo, and signed books at the Barnes and Noble in Waco, I managed to squish in 9000 words for Woodland Fae.

Okay, I’m off and running. I need to make a list so I can keep track of everything I need to do. I had no food in the house either, so had to do some grocery shopping… And I realized I had published Darkland Elf on Thursday morning before we went to Waco for Thanksgiving, but I didn’t have any time to tell the world!

One of my beta readers sent back corrections for the The Witch and the Jaguar, need the other’s still and then need to format the cover for the is book. So it should be coming out soon.

In the meantime? I’m taking a break and  having lunch. I’ll send this bear to keep an eye on you. What beady little eyes and what a long tongue he has!

Have a great day!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

I’m working all day on edits, nearly done with Silver Town Wolves Christmas and then will be doing the proofing on Darkland Elves. And exercising!

Hope you all are having a great week!!! Internet was wonky all morning, so just now getting this up!

Oh No! Thanksgiving!

Dangerous beauty.

Yes, I’m grateful, thankful, and blessed! But….you see, I have a book I’m trying to do final edits on for my publisher and another book I’m getting close to finishing (it’s awful when I have to keep stopping when I’m really going to town on it) and another book that’s coming back from a beta reader that I need to finish edits on and then publish, and…well, Thanksgiving wrecks dieting, exercising, and writing. There. I said it. I’m so mean. Laughing.

Hopefully, we’ll go to the zoo though, take baby to see her first wild animals, I’ll take lots of pictures, and that will make up for all the other trouble Thanksgiving causes. Truly, I am grateful and thankful and blessed and I will have fun anyway, even if I can’t spend all my time writing!

Two thousand more words on Woodland Fae yesterday and walked 5.5 miles. I did about the same the day before, a little more walking though.

Off to edit and exercise because tomorrow will be another story.  Hope you are having a great week!!!

Should He Be Worried?

rhino-and-vultures-800x533

Yep, surrounded by turkey vultures, but he probably doesn’t know what they’re all about.

jaguar-fence-800x533Let them in here with me, and I’ll take care of them, the jaguar says.

Lioness and Vultures (588x640)Lion, King of the Vultures spicify (640x427)The lions might not care about them.

black bear side vultures (640x427)Or the bears.

rhinos and vultures (800x533)Or the rhinos.

cougar close up teeth whiskes (640x427)But come fly into our exhibits and that will give us something fun to hunt, the cougar and jaguar say.

And I’m fantasizing about roasting turkey….yum.

Goodbye Thanksgiving, Here Comes Christmas!

Excited to have my whole family here for Christmas. My son is usually overseas, and I have my daughter and SIL every Christmas, which I love. But this year, the whole gang will be here and we’re all going to see Star Trek together! My son loves to cook, so he’s making some delicious side dishes. I’ll make the turkey, and Jenn loves to make some dishes, soooo, it’s a family affair and I can’t be more excited!!

So next up is Alpha’s Unwrapped releasing December 1st. I can’t believe December is nearly here. I’m so not ready for it!

But the time doesn’t standstill for anyone.

And I’m here with a giveaway, so just drop by and comment for a chance!

So here is an excerpt from Covert Cougar Christmas by me!

Christmas tree with lights in winter

“Fourteen hundred and some pocket change. So not too bad. The angels are really going over big this year. And the naughty elf wooden ornaments from Denmark too.”

Christmas Ornaments from Denmark

Christmas Ornaments from Denmark

Or they might have been from Sweden. My mom got them years and years and years ago. And this is all that’s left of them. But they’re what gave me the idea in the story. Oftentimes I will include some real life stories in my stories.

Hope you had a lovely weekend. It’s been raining and raining and raining and raining here. And REALLY cold. I had to get out warmer clothes gloves, hat so I’m not rushing the dogs in and out. I keep expecting the temperature to go back to it’s usually warm state. The frigid north has settled in at least for another day. And then in the low sixties next week. And no rain.

So back to work on Viking!! Have a super Sunday!!!

I think these are Pencil Boxwood

I think these are Pencil or Skyrocket Boxwood. They’re evergreen, grow really tall, and remain really narrow.

Okay, and I’m back to cleaning and decorating. 🙂

Have a great Black Friday! Are you going anywhere? Eating anything special? Me? Turkey!

Thanksgiving Meant Family!

My daughter and her Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

Pear tree in fall colors.

Ham and stuffing my daughter made for Thanksgiving.

Rhaegar, Rottweiler, my son’s dog and Rilo, my daughter’s dog while we were eating the roast I had made.

The two dogs playing with Rilo’s toys. Rilo barked a bit. Rhaeger is about 18 mos old and really sweet.

It was great having my son and daughter visit at the same time since they haven’t seen each other in 3 years.

We had a great time. Hope your holidays are the best!

It’s back to finishing up bear orders and books!

Fall Colors and Jacques Le Jester Bear

Pear Fall Leaves

Pear Fall Leaves

I was getting ready to have dinner when I saw the pear tree in fall colors. I had to stop what I was doing and run out with the camera. We don’t get much in the line of fall colors here, so I was excited. 🙂 And I’m working on a jester bear for a possible order. An earlier one I made won first place for Best Dressed Bear.

And I’ve finished proofing the print copy of Call of the Cougar, so off to work on Phantom Fae!

Have a lovely Tuesday!
