Don’t Take it Personally, But…

You know you want to do it. To tell someone what you really think. Kids do. Why can’t we? Of course, sometimes adults do. Well meaning, or not.

The World of Fae

In my fae stories, the fae tell it like it is. Nothing personal. They’re just being the fae.

Niall, a royal member of the Denkar, aka the dark fae, is visiting South Padre Island when he catches a winged fae painting graffiti on a wall on the island claimed by his people. He is at once fascinated with the lovely girl and intrigued by her audacity, but as one of the Denkar, he must take her to task. Yet she’s armed with a sleeping potion that makes his life intolerable. Between freeing her from his people’s dungeon, her own tower, and fighting a knight in her honor, he wonders if he’s lost his mind over one beautiful winged fae–when she’s betrothed to his cousin!

Excerpt from The Winged Fae by Terry Spear:

Bringing her attention back to the store Serena was standing in as she watched out the big picture window, she heard a clerk say to a woman trying on a beach dress near the dressing rooms, “Oh, yes, that looks just lovely on you.”

Serena turned around to see what looked so lovely on the woman and stared at the ugly monstrosity—the dress, not the customer. Although anyone wearing the dress would instantly look nearly as awful—the gauche colors, the hideous billowing sack, the ragged edging on the sleeves and hem of the dress as if the seamstress had forgotten to hem it.

Her faeness coming to the forefront, like a ventriloquist, Serena threw her voice, making it sound close to the clerk as if she was the one speaking again and said, “That is the most hideous-looking dress in the store. The color makes your skin look splotchy and sallow. The style, if it could be said to have any style at all, adds a hundred pounds onto your weight.”

If that didn’t do it, nothing would discourage the woman from buying the dress. Yet, Serena loved the gaping look on the customer’s face, and on the store clerk’s, too, and couldn’t leave well enough alone. Although if she’d been truly in a mischievous mood, she would have encouraged the woman to buy the goddess-awful dress.

“Not only that, but it looks like something you dragged out of a rag bag. The colors clash in such a horrible fashion that they wouldn’t look good on anyone, no matter—”

A hand seized Serena’s shoulder, and she was so startled, she shrieked.

I swear the fae were messing with me today. I had to change yet another darn smoke detector’s battery. There are like 10 in the house! Talk about total overkill, and it really hurts the dogs’ ears. So, first, I’m trying to figure out which one it is. In the direction it was, there are three.

Then I can’t reach it with the 8 foot ladder without lifting a bedside table and moving it. Then I finally could change out the battery, and as I was moving the table back in place, the drawers were falling out and I bumped one of the legs against the wall, very narrow space there, and skinned up the paint on the wall. I know the fae were up to no good. Not saying they moved the wall in closer, but the drawers, helping to push them out, yes. Then I carried the ladder back out to the garage and set it against the wall. Only it didn’t stay there. Now this is definitely where the fae were involved. They pushed the ladder against my car and dented it.

Darn fae.

I’m off to work on Cougar Magic, should be halfway done today, but I’m out to fix the fae once I can.

Supposed to rain, but the percentage keeps dropping. It’s very gray out though, so maybe…

Have a lovely day and hope you don’t have any troubles with the fae like I’m having today. And if someone says something nasty to you or treats you meanly, they might be one of the spiteful fae. Just saying…

The Snake Door Removeth

I’ve been doing some remodeling to snake proof my house. But in truth, I don’t know where the two snakes came in. And my snake guard bird–the road runner–took off, so I couldn’t rely on him to do the job.bcd78-roadrunnerheadon-339x400

*sigh*

But I finally got some things done–replaced some windows and I’m so happy with them. The winds would blow my blinds around! And no, I didn’t have my windows open for that to happen. The heat on the south side of the house would come through the windows, not noticed before, but once I moved my computer desk next to them, it was noticeable. Plus I worried about all the dust and dirt that constantly blew in from the fields surrounding me.

So, I finally ordered new windows. They are GREAT!

It’s already been in the 90’s and I only turned on a ceiling fan for a short while later yesterday afternoon, the house staying cool. If you touch the window on the outside, it’s hot, but on the inside, it’s cool. Yes!!! I feel like I’m in my castle now, with 6 foot wide walls that are keeping the cold and heat out.Dunnottar Castle entrance through narrow tunnel

My next project was to have a door removed and replace it with a wall.  The guys did an excellent job. It was the door to the outside to the laundry room, but when my parents added on to the house, another door was built that was the only one any of us used. The other had become obsolete. And I constantly had to clean up dirt and debris at the bottom of it, even though it had a storm door also. So they took care of that and now I have a wall instead of 3 doors going into the small laundry room. And no way for snakes to get in there. I also replaced the dryer vent outdoor flap. The top one had broken off, but if a snake, or two, had come in that way, they’d have had to have gone into the dryer.

Of course, I don’t really know where the snakes came in from. I only know they ended up with me in the living room.  🙂

But despite my road runner abandoning me, I’m feeling more secure. 🙂

It might be false security, but hopefully I’ve plugged up some of the bug holes also this way. You see, I’ve had a ton of flies get into the house. And hornets. And well, just about everything. I’m not leaving doors open. So hopefully, these changes will keep the bugs and critters at bay.

I’m doing my usual balancing act.

 A fun show outside a restaurant at Disney World.

I have another conference to go to. I’m trying to finish up A SEAL Wolf for Sale, had a breakthrough on how to fix something that wasn’t working for me, but still have 9,000 words to go. Hope to have finished writing it by Friday. And then spend a another couple of weeks editing it.

I have another blog tour coming up, which means I have to write tons more guest blogs and I’m not ready for that again. That’s for Jaguar Hunt coming June 4.

I just received Scepter of Salvation audiobook to review, reviewed, takes at least 2 days and then sent back editing changes, narrator made the changes and then I approved it, paid her and it’s up for review. But at the same time I got the revisions back, The Winged Fae came in for review. So I’m halfway done on that one. Though I had hoped to be working strictly on A SEAL Wolf for Sale all week.

🙂

So it’s a balancing act. Which has priority? In this case, all do.

So that’s it! I’ll take pictures of the new windows when I can find a picture of the old window to show a comparison to. 🙂  I don’t think I had one of the laundry room door. *sigh* I should always take before and after pictures, reminder to self.

Off to finish up The Winged Fae, and then it’s back to A SEAL Wolf For Sale.

Have a brilliantly fun Monday. Do you ever feel things are a balancing act? I set my priorities and it all gets done. What about you?
