Okay, I dropped off little one at school. Last night, she didn’t want to sleep in her own room, so I had to set rules. No Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. No lights flashing across the ceiling. Once she agreed to the terms, she was asleep in my bed in an instant. Of course she wanted all of it. But I said she could sleep in grandma’s bed with the lights and music and I’d sleep in her room, but she didn’t want that. lol. So she agreed.
Then I had sinus issues, felt like my teeth needed to be pulled, so it took me forever to fall asleep last night. She wasn’t the problem. Thankfully.
Another novella coming out separately. I think this one is in the 10th Anniversary Release of Destiny of the Wolf.
I need to get back on track with my work. I try to work on it all the time when I’m free during the few minutes I am. I took little one out to play in the sprinkler last night, and Tanner, one of my silly dogs, raced back and forth with her, loving the water. So they were fun to watch and I know that wore her out too. She wanted to stay with me today and not go to preschool, but they’re having a nature walk and so I told her about that and she was excited about that.
I saw a hairy woodpecker this morning and was trying to capture a shot of it. Not sure if any of them turned out.
I’m off to work and get some other things done! Have a great day! I’m excited to get mine going!
The supporting characters were fun, charming and I am hoping they all get their own stories. Maverick, Ethan, Adam, Lucas and Mr. Lee kept me laughing through out Joy to the Wolves their slap stick humor was brilliant as was their teasing. There were a few of them that gave the plot a few twist that I did not see coming.
I truly enjoyed Joy to the Wolves. It’s a brilliant beginning to a new series by the amazing Terry Spear. Joy to the Wolves contained some danger, a mysterious puzzle to solve, fun, unforgettable main and supporting characters that in time I hope to see with their own books in the Red Wolf Series If you are a huge Paranormal shifter lover, a huge fan of HEA then you are in for a holiday treat.Rated 5 Stilettos and a Recommended Read by Deb

Spend every Christmas with an unforgettable shifter hero from USA Today bestseller Terry Spear: “An enchanting tale of kismet―werewolf style!”―Fresh Fiction for Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas “The best of holiday romances…a howling good time.”―Long and Short Reviews for A Silver Wolf Christmas “A holiday treat―romance that sizzles and entertains.”―Fresh Fiction for A Highland Wolf Christmas “Sensuous, heartwarming romance, enhanced by an adorable wolf pup and winter-time fun.”―Library Journal for A Very Jaguar Christmas “Delectable…a ‘Recommended Read’ for Christmas and all year long!”―Romance Junkies for A SEAL Wolf Christmas
I definitely have more stories in store for the red wolves! Adam has his story next year. Maverick–so many of my fans wanted to read Josh’s twin brother’s story, so it will be off to the reindeer ranch with Maverick’s fun story in 2022, the Christmas story for that year. Lucas, the teen, will definitely be getting into more trouble. I’m sure Mr. Lee will be back for a return to the mayhem!
It turned cold! Well, for us. Forty-two is cold when we’re getting into the 80s every day. It was 70 yesterday morning. Managed another 3,000 words on Cougar Christmas Calamity.
Something was messed up on Amazon as far as the series goes for Heart of the Huntress, the vampire/hunter series. So I was trying to get that sorted out this morning and realized–ack! I don’t have three of the titles in print. So when I get a chance, I need to get Huntress for Hire, Book 2; Forbidden Love, Book 3; and Deadly Liaisons, Book 4 in print. I do have some of those in audiobooks! So I was surprised they weren’t in print also.
And, I still need to do the edits on Dreaming of the Wolf. *sigh*
My mid-key hand-painted background needed tweaking, so hopefully I did it correctly this time. I’m ready to submit my parrot after that. And I’ve worked on a low-key background and a butterfly on a flower for the low key one for after that. Then I need another of each again….
Okay, really off to work! Have a super great day. The cold is fun. And perfect for the cougar Christmas story I’m working on!

she-wolves. The last one in his life ambushed him with the intent to
kill. So when he’s tasked with helping his cousin’s friend get to a
wedding, he has no intention of getting involved with her…
She-wolf Natalie Silverton has inadvertently crossed a group of
dangerous criminals, and she’s in dire need of a bodyguard. Good thing
Brock is there to protect her. At every turn, their work—and play—brings

I worked on Billionaire until midnight, couldn’t get my internet to work yesterday or this morning, had to finally literally pull the plug on my computer because I couldn’t shut it down properly and totally forgot about the new release. ugh. I’m lucky others mention it. I wrote it a year ago, have been promoting it on and off, and it always seems to me that it’s already out!
Baby is here again and then I have 4 days of writing. I’m hoping to get caught up. Most of the Highland Wolf books are still on sale!
I am trying to write 3,000 words a day so I can be less behind, but I need to finish edits on the novella for SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue and turn it in too.
It turned rainy and cold so I’ve been doing a lot of weeding. The weeds outnumber the population of all the people of the earth though. I’m certain of it! And I’m pretty sure that every time I pull up five weeds, ten more are taking their place, as if I just made room for them.
Okay, I’m off to take care of baby and hope I can get some writing done on my off writing day to make up some more on my word count. I’m 10,000 behind. But that’s down from 14,000, so that’s good!
Have a great day! I was enjoying the overcast one, but I missed seeing the super moon. I hope you got a glimpse of it!
I was trying to get some promo blogs written for it today, and finished the marketing materials for Silver Town Wolf Christmas and turned them in. So I made up the picture of the wolves and added it to a video I made also. And I updated my signature line on my emails.
When the wolves’ own blood betrays them, they risk their lives to find a miracle.
Wolf shifter Dr. Aidan Denali has been working day and night to find a cure for werewolves’ alarmingly sudden decline in lifespan. The key to the problem eludes him. But when Aidan grudgingly leaves his work to do some holiday shopping, he meets a remarkable she-wolf whose mysterious pack could bring him one step closer to the answer.
Dr. Holly Gray is thrilled to meet the wolf who’s been working so hard to help others. Now, it’s her turn to help him. But while their attraction is sizzling, the packs are at odds, and the danger is increasing. It’s going to take a holiday miracle for Holly and Aidan to get themselves―and their loved ones―out of this alive…

But now I need to update my website again. When I post about new releases coming up, some bookseller sites don’t have the links for the book, and I check periodically, nothing, and then? I forget. lol
Anyway, I’m still working on the blogs, cut out 12 bears and Sunflower Bear sold! She’s found a home in Australia. This signature line is tiny on my email, so it looks much clearer than this.
I shipped off bears yesterday, but baby’s here today, so not sure how much I’ll get done. Maybe I’ll just take off the day and play!
When I start a book, it’s standalone. My wolf series started with Heart of the Wolf. I LOVED writing about wolves as shifters based on real wolves, but with romance and adventure, mystery and humor, and all that good stuff. Now, I wrote Heart of the Wolf, loving it, but when we write, trying to get a book published, that’s another story. However, publishers aren’t looking for standalone titles. They can’t build readership that way. And authors need readership. But if we can’t sell the first book in a “series,” why write a series of unsaleable books?
I was determined to sell a wolf book though, because I loved the idea. So I started writing Destiny of the Wolf. They’re different wolf packs, same world, but don’t meet. So I solved the problem with writing a series that I couldn’t sell, sold Heart of the Wolf, and then added a mystery wolf who is in the first 4 standalone wolf titles. You see, I never knew if my publisher would keep buying the wolf tales.
I like standalone series myself. I like to finish a book and know it’s finished, and I love reading about characters I loved in the other stories who now get stories of their own. The same with my readers. I think I’ll write a story, some will like it, and the book won’t catch on, but I don’t intend to write more of them, even if I love the story. Then I get so many requests for more, I have to write them. And I love it.
In the books featured below, this is a series within a series. Again, who knew it would happen? Not me. But my first book about the Navy SEAL wolves was To Tempt The Wolf. Then A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing, A SEAL Wolf Christmas, and next year, SEAL Wolf Hunting.
Again, it’s like I had more characters that came to life and needed their own story. I read a blog where an author doesn’t like writing series. Granted, they take more effort. We have to remember details from earlier books, and if you have so many series going at the same time as I do, that can be a real challenge. But I want to write for my readers. And if that means I write about characters that readers have fallen in love with, I’ll do it. Case in point in the SEAL stories. Hunter, in To Tempt the Wolf, has a very annoying sister. But so many of my readers wanted to see her story, I had to write it. And A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing was born. Everyone wanted to see who could tame his sister. I had a ball, and that was my 9th book and it made USA Today Bestseller.
SEAL Wolf Hunting
To Tempt the Wolf: His love has the power to transform… or destroy…
A Christmas paranormal romance with the hot combination of a sexy Navy SEAL hero with werewolves, from USA Today bestselling author Terry Spear.
So I write standalone titles every time. Truly. But sometimes, oftentimes, they turn into series. 🙂 <3
What about you? Do you enjoy reading: Standalone titles? Standalone Series? Cliffhanger Series where you have to read them in order or you’re totally lost?
Have a great Tuesday! I finished writing Phantom Fae and now am working on edits! 🙂
