Switching from Highlanders to the Old West–Ghosts and Time Travel

I’ve always loved westerns, ghost stories, and time travel so in A Ghost of a Chance at Love I was able to combine three things I love with a romance and the town of Salado, Texas that I used to visit with my mother when she was still alive.

Whenever we visited, it made me think of what it would be like to live back then when the town was just begun. Imagine the buildings that are old now, were new back then. The stagecoach that just takes sightseers up and down the main street would travel 5 hours all the way to Waco, Texas, the city that was a town near where I was living. The Stagecoach Inn was now The Shady Villa Inn during the 1800s. You wake up in the inn to find the name has changed, everyone is dressed for pioneer days or some such thing, the road is no longer paved but dirt, and cattle are run through the main street during cattle drives.

So that is the story I’m now proofing. The Accidental Highlander is done and hopefully this weekend I’ll have all three books ready to republish.

I know I’ll have more books coming in for edits, so I want to get this done in the meantime.

I think this will be my last physical therapy day. It’s already cost me $925, insurance won’t cover a dime, and my shoulder is getting better. If I keep working on the exercises at home like I have been, I should be well on the way to recovery.

Have a beautiful day!!

The Butterfly Effect–and Windblown Puppy

You change one thing and it changes everything. That’s why time travel, if you’re thinking of doing it, can really make a mess of things. So think about it before you buy that ticket.

Oh, sure, you think you know history and so you can go back and make a mint off things that have occurred that no one knows about yet. Investments, etc. But, what about everything else you change?

Okay, so why am I thinking of this? Late last night I got to the last 20 or so pages of my manuscript and discovered that the changes I had made early on in the last couple of days requires me to majorly rewrite the last 20 pages, and I still haven’t figured out the climax. The book is much better, but, ack! The days are slipping away faster than I can allow. You see? That’s where time travel could come in handy.

But think of it. If I went back in time, I wouldn’t have even have started the book yet. And that is a horrifying thought. 🙂

Yesterday I took pictures of wind-blown dogs.  The wind was 23 mph, which can be a lot higher, but that’s high enough to make for bad hair days, and funny puppy pictures. I tried to get some pictures of it, but not sure they turned out. I also tried to take macro pictures of the daffodils blooming, BUT, I ran out of disk space. I need to delete some pictures off the disk, but I just don’t have time to do it this very minute. I need to get back to writing. But if I don’t do it, the flowers will have faded. Note to self: have extra disks on hand.

I still have some copies of the following audio books for readers to review. The bad part is that if you’ve already reviewed one, you can’t review another. I’ve asked, and they won’t budge on it.
But if you haven’t had a chance to listen to one of my audio books and would like to, just let me know.

Category: Fiction » Young adult or teen » Romance » Fantasy

Alicia has planned a vacation at South Padre Island with her girlfriend Cassie in forever. But just as they’re enjoying a day on the beach, here comes a dark fae to spoil their holiday, except only she can see what he truly is. Alicia has no idea how upside down her world can turn with a chance meeting with one of the dark fae from the royal house of the Denkar.

Alicia’s always known she’s different–that she can recognize the mischievous fae when they show up to “play” with the humans. Only now she’s faced with one highly annoyed dark fae and she’s certain he knows the truth about her. She can see him, which means her life is forfeit.

Add to that, his sister arrives, who wants to play, too. And their mother, the queen of the Denkar, will want Alicia’s head, once she learns what Alicia can do.

And all because Alicia was attempting to rescue her friend, Cassie, on their beach excursion at South Padre Island, from the wicked fae. Now, Alicia has really gone and done it–and she’s thinking she should have let the fae have his fun. Her friend’s broken heart would be a lot easier to deal with, than Alicia losing her life.

But it is too late for regrets. As soon as she threw the soda at the dark fae’s chest, she had declared war on the fae. And he is happy to take up the challenge.

Kiss of the Vampire Book Trailer Video

By Terry Spear
Category: Fiction » Young adult or teen » Romance » Fantasy

The motto of the vampires is that humans have to deal with problems on their own. But when Levka and his friends risk all to save human girls, he is injured and so the adventure begins. A cruise. A human girl who is terrified of water. And a vampire who has targeted her for his mate. But she has some secrets of her own.

Forced to take a cruise ship to babysit her foster sister, Caitlin has to face her own demons. But add to that her foster sister’s and her friend’s antics and Caitlin’s inability to use her witch’s magic over water and she has little hope to enjoy this trip. Until she meets a wheelchair-bound teen and wants to make friends with him in the worst way.

Levka and his friends make a hasty retreat from Dallas before the vampire elders stake them for getting involved in human affairs–again. But when he meets Caitlin on the cruise ship, hating that he’s so weak after being injured so severely that he has to use a wheelchair, he finds their troubles have just begun.

Taming the Wild Highlander will be available soon in audio book. It’s just going through a final review process. And I’m about ready to review: The Deadly Fae and Lady Caroline and the Egotistical Earl.

And Relative Danger will be coming out by August 12.

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?
He stole her heart once, should she chance it again???
Would you???

Have a super Tuesday! Hope to have lunch with my daughter-in-law who has just come in from a visit to my son in Japan while he’s flying in the AF out there, and then she’s returning to Nebraska and he will also soon. He’s taken up scuba diving and I’m thinking, hmm, I’ll have to pick his brains for a SEAL wolf story in the future. 🙂

Have any of you scuba dived? I love to snorkle! 🙂
