Antique? White Rocking Horse

This rocking horse is smaller, so my jester bear doesn’t look so tiny on the big horse.

Running late on blogging. Trying to get several posted for different sites and getting books ready to ship. Trying to multi-task isn’t working. lol I have lots of half-finished things.

Excerpt from SEAL Wolf Undercover

by Terry Spear

[Note: Vaughn and Jillian are gray wolves. Howard is a jaguar shifter]

Chapter 8

 

“Let me get this straight,” Vaughn growled at Jillian. “We are working together on solving the crimes committed here, right?”

Howard laughed. “I’m sure glad I’m with the two of you. I don’t know when we’ll ever solve the case, but it’s sure entertaining to see how we’re going to go about doing it.”

Jillian’s jaw was set as she opened her car door. “Sure. We’ll start with examining the cabin for any evidence of foul play. Together.

“You said you didn’t think your brother was guilty of any crime. So why not talk to him?” Vaughn couldn’t help how furious he was. If her brother wasn’t guilty of anything, they needed to clear this up pronto. If he knew something, even if he didn’t think he did, they needed to learn of it and see if it led them in the right direction.

“Listen,” Jillian said, getting out of the car and placing her hands on her hips, “he’s my brother. He might have talked about anything, thinking he was having a private conversation with family—me, his sister. I had to let him know I wasn’t alone. That if he needed to tell me something, he also needed to know others were listening in to the conversation. It was up to him to decide if he wanted to talk in front of anyone else. Apparently, he didn’t.”

“Which means he could be damn guilty.” Vaughn pinned her with a glower.

She took off for the cabin. “I’m not the bad guy. Neither is my brother.”

“If he is, you’re covering for him, whether you believe he’s guilty or not. Hell, maybe you were the one who did it.”

Jillian whipped around, her mouth hanging agape. “You think I tore into Douglas now?”

“Maybe you got there first before your brother did. It’s only your word that you arrived at Douglas’s cabin after someone attacked him. Maybe your brother shows up and discovers what you did. Being a protective brother, he warns you to call Leidolf to take care of him so you’re not accused of attempted murder. You do. He leaves, but returns well after Leidolf’s men have taken an injured Douglas and the evidence away,  to see if there’s anything else left behind. Before he could leave some evidence that muddied the waters, I caught your brother standing in front of the blood left behind. Maybe you’re right. Miles had nothing to do with it. Maybe he’s helping you cover up that you did it.”

Her eyes were wide in disbelief. “What about you!”

Vaughn nearly laughed. He hadn’t expected her to accuse him. He didn’t believe she had injured Douglas either. But he wanted her to realize that by covering for her brother, she could be suspect.

“Yeah, you! Who says you didn’t wound him? What if you did it in the heat of an argument over some old pack feud, hadn’t planned it, and then you took off to get cleaning supplies to take care of the mess? I arrive, find Douglas in bad shape and call Leidolf for help. After we left, Miles arrives to see his friend and finds the blood on the floor. Miles ends up getting some blood on him, if that really happened. Who says he really did end up with blood on his muzzle? We only have your word that he did.

“So after you injure Douglas, you return to the scene of the crime, and unexpectedly come face to face with Miles at the cabin. He smells your scent, and he realizes you’re the one who injured his friend. Miles takes off, certain you’re going to kill him if you can catch him. He’d be the perfect patsy all tied up in one neat little package. Now you can’t dispose of the body, most likely believing Douglas was dead, because I’ve already gotten help for him and removed him from the cabin. And you can’t hide the evidence like you’d planned because Leidolf’s men have already gathered it and taken it away. You have to silence the witness though. And you’d have to take care of Douglas too before he comes out of his coma. You call Leidolf to tell him you’re going after a suspect. Then you go after my brother to take care of loose ends.”

Standing on the deck, Howard was smirking, waiting to see how this all played out.

********

In real life, conflict isn’t fun, but in literature, you have to have it. 🙂

Baby fell asleep while I bounced her on my lap and put out the newsletter. So I’m off to work on a promo blog due already, and hope you have a chance to pick up SEAL Wolf Undercover, and LOVE it!

Years ago, I went to Disney World, and in the few times I’ve been, I didn’t really use a camera much. Today, I see so much more. Not just the rides or other cool stuff, but the wildlife, sunsets, and storms.

In Flight of the White Wolf, I talk about how he’s changed his view about the world, instead of hiking and not seeing half there is to see, just counting steps, to becoming a wolf and really seeing all that the world has to offer. We just have to stop and look and see. 🙂

Have a great one!!

Silence of the Wolf is Available Today!!! Well, Yesterday!!!

It’s finally here! Can you believe my editor only wanted 4 books in the beginning??? But I knew I was gaining wolf pack members. That the more the word got out, the more wolves there were who wanted to join in on the fun.

I’m working on book 16 in the series right now. 🙂  And the wolves are as loved as ever. It does help to have different wolf packs, different places, to really make each book unique and not the same old thing. It’s something I try hard at doing because I know in my own reading, I hate to read a book I feel is just a rehash of another book. Even if they’re years apart, readers will continue to read them and love them, and so we can’t just write another one like that, thinking we can sneak by with it.

Nope. And I wouldn’t think of doing that. That’s why I love creating new stories. But I was reading a book I fell in love with, and then I read another of the author’s, written ten years later, and it had the same opening. LOL. She no longer writes, but I loved her writing style, and I wanted to read more of her books. But it taught me that even if you like a plot device, it’s not a good idea to use it again ten years later. Different genre? Sure. Different world? Sure. But not same world, same situation. Can I use it? Sure. LOL

Thanks for all my fan’s support in making this a long-running series. Through all your wolf love you have made it happen.

SILENCE OF THE WOLF BY TERRY SPEAR – IN STORES MARCH 2014

Life For the Silver Pack Just Got Wilder…

Elizabeth Wildwood has been a loner all her life, ostracized because of her “mixed” half-wolf, half-coyote blood. When she ventures into gray wolf territory on a dangerous quest of her own and is thrown together with the sexiest shifter she’s ever met she begins to wish for the first time that she could be part of a family.

When this unusual shifter female comes into his pack’s territory, it’s Tom Silver’s job to protect her—if only she would let him.

It started with Destiny of the Wolf, and Darien, the wolf pack leader, then Carol, who was a victim in that book, had her own book in Wolf Fever, and then Dreaming of the Wolf, was the middle brother, Jake’s story. So now, it’s Tom’s turn. :)

Somehow in all the excitement, this was still on draft. 🙂

More Bears and Books!

Campbell Clan Bear is done!
And I have 3 more orders for Australia!

 Best Friends Purple Sweater Bear

 

 Happy Birthday Blue Sweater Bear

 Pink Hearts Sweater Bear

And I finished Jaguar Pride!!!

In other words, I’ve written THE END!!! I love when that happens. I’m halfway done with editing it–which is the advantage of editing as I write because it’s not a totally rough draft. Some have to write the book first and then edit or they’ll get stuck editing and not writing. For me, I would be way over word count when I didn’t flesh out my scenes until after I wrote the book. 🙂

And then I’m working on 13 blogs for the blog tour for Silence of the Wolf!

More on that later, because right now, I’m getting ready to work some more on Jaguar Pride edits. Hope to have it done by the weekend!
And then, it’s time to work on all those interviews and guest blogs, plus I’m making up a couple of raffle baskets for Romantic Times Convention!
Oh, and I’ve had 3 things go out on me in the past week–my microwave, computer, and now a floor heater. That’s it for a while now, right? 3 things is the max? Right?
Are you having a fun weekend?
Have a super great Saturday!!!

It’s All About Character and Setting

I took this picture of John Wilson, who plays with a Celtic band and has a paranormal investigation service, was a guest, along with his wife, who sat at my dinner table at the Readers and Ritas this past weekend. Now, in the  original picture, he was standing by a bunch of raffle baskets. How boring is that?

And Dianna Love and Morgan Fox, both authors, needed their own lovely Christmas setting, I thought. Before this, it was the ball room set up for dinner.

Dianna Love, Morgan Fox copy (533x800)

On two big book deadlines so enough playing around, but wait, then there’s Kimmi Wakefield and me in a boring hotel hallway.

Photo: Okay, Kimmi Wakefield, did we have fun or what??? We just needed the knight in shining armor.

And my table decorated for dinner that Rana D. Adams took:

Photo: Thanks, Rana D. Adams, for the lovely table photo. See who came to dinner??? Looking for the rest of the pack, and that was us!

So some quick photoshop fun. Not the best, but really have to get back to book deadlines, but I wanted to “improve” the settings… and so there you have it!

Ever take a great fun picture and hate the background???

Interesting Doors…

Weird things fascinate me. These doors were in Savannah, Georgia. I was having a discussion about doors with my daughter yesterday, and she was telling me that they put temporary doors on the homes they’re constructing because thieves steal the doors. Huh? Who would have ever thought it.

Okay, so maybe doors are more of a precious commodity than I thought. But unique doors fascinate me.

AAD Conference, 2013, Savannah 135 (533x800)
This one was at the Cotton Exchange.
Cotton Exchange (533x800)

And these were taken in Salado, Texas. These doors might look like ordinary doors, but they were only about 5 feet tall, if that? Little tiny doors. And very narrow.

tiny inside doors (533x800)

I found it fascinating on the doors of this period in all of the old houses redone as shops and how many of them had windows above.

door with window above (533x800)

Back to writing! Reached 55,000 last night, but still 5,000 short for the week on A Highland Wolf Christmas. *sigh* With the holidays coming up, I’m running out of time! But I remind myself when I started this venture, I had Chapter 1 written. As in the heading: Chapter 1. Not the whole chapter. So 25,000 to go! Much better than 25,000 done and 55,000 to go!

Oh, and while I was talking to my daughter about Halloween and how some have over a 1,000 trick-or-treaters at their door–wow, she was telling me how she had one girl show up in a bra and panties–about 14. Who let her out of the house dressed like that???

Have a super Sunday!!!

Focusing on the Interesting…

Rhinos Bathing

In writing, it’s fun to compare and contrast things–people, objects, places, settings, to make them different, more interesting. Here is a case in point: Rhinos can be plain… boring. If they’re just… standing around. Doing nothing. But when I was at the Omaha zoo, the rhinos were bathing and it intrigued me. It was near freezing out at Thanksgiving time in November, so it seemed ironic that they would take a bath, not to cool down!

Before this, I was visiting the Waco zoo, and this is what I found–rhinos sleeping. So??? But it was the turkey vultures perched on top that intrigued me. My friend, who was with me, told me the rhinos were merely statues. I told her no, they’re real. She couldn’t believe it. We watched for a long time, until she saw one’s ear flutter. And then satisfied they were real, we moved on.

And here is further proof that the rhinos are alive and well in Texas. It was feeding time at the zoo.

Finding something interesting in a setting is like writing about something interesting. We want to focus on that–and not on the mundane, or it will make our pictures, and our writing just that–mundane.

Sunset in Texas & the North Star and the Moon

Oct sunset, moon, north star (800x748)

Note there are other specks of stars surrounding the moon and North Star.  The sky is filled with stars this morning and I tried to capture them with my camera but it’s only showing blackness. But I loved seeing the Dippers in the early morning darkness. Ever go star gazing?

What do you see?

My thoughts on A SEAL Wolf Christmas

What I love most about Terry Spear’s book is that you don’t feel lost if you read the series books out of order. I also loved seeing all the cameos of characters in previous Heart of the Wolf books. And, of course I loved the HEA and was surprised that a second HEA was found in the supporting characters. 
 
This book is a rollercoaster ride of mystery, intrigue, and wolfy love set to the backdrop of an Oregon winter. There is so much action going on and so many different plot twists. Many interwoven mysteries blended with well-developed characters and super sexy wolves. Terry Spear is a masterful storyteller. I loved every page of it!
 
I received a Net Galley copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions are my own.
Rating: 5 Stars
 
**A quick note, if you would like to purchase A SEAL Wolf Christmas, Amazon has the paperback on sale for $4.79! Not sure how long the sale will last so get your copy today! Link below!**
