All’s Fair in Love and Wolf Released!!!

Zoerro gray timber wolf at the New Mexico wolf reserve drinking water from a bowl on our cabin porch.

Ladies, and Gents, and Wolves, it’s out!!! All’s Fair in Love and Wolf can be in your hot little hands/paws now!

I have just a couple of minutes before baby arrives and I was thinking, why do my release dates always fall on the day when the baby is here???? You know, it’s one of those thoughts when I’m trying to fall asleep and can’t. And then I remembered–because she’s always here on Tuesdays and that’s release day. *sigh*

I could have done this all last night, but then again, I was working on the other story, and I got the last story back to make minor revisions to! Which always messes up my mojo for the current story. I have to dive back into the last one, while promoting this one that I wrote a year ago, and still type up notes on the new one. Confused yet? And you wonder why I change my hero or heroine’s name midstream to one in another book. Well, maybe you don’t wonder, but my beta reader does. lol

Time for Wolves

Playing around with a composite–bokeh (created with taking a picture where only the colors of the flowers in the sun were visible) and melting pocket watches are my photos, and the other clocks are free on Pixabay, the wolf from Depositphotos.

I was disappointed last night to learn that I had thought I was 8,000 words ahead of the game, but I’ve dropped down to 5,000. I had been at 7,000 for sure. I guess I lost track when I was sick. Sooo, I need to get that 7,000 lead again. 🙂 <3 I like to get ahead of my goal in case things happen that put me behind and then I’m still ahead….confused yet?

Have you noticed that a lot of movies lately, more so than usual, are constant flashbacks? Constant. We’re in the present, then living a scene in the past, fast forward, fast backward, fast forward. In writing, it makes it confusing, so if something is really, really important to the story, I try to show it in the beginning of the story. It’s okay to mention it, but actually taking the characters, and you, back constantly, can be jarring.

Most of the time I can follow a movie story line when they do that. My dad absolutely couldn’t watch movies like that. He’d be totally lost. But I was watching something that really confused me the other day. I thought it was in the past, but it was in the present again. That’s the problem with time traveling in the middle of a story–constantly. 🙂

But now??? It’s the present and time for the wolves!

Have a wonderful day! I know what I have to do!!!

Wolf and Baby with Texture Backgrounds and 4 Stars RT Reviews! SOLD!!!

Baby was just telling me why the hair bow was a no go. When I showed her the picture later, she was laughing. But fake laughing. Like practicing. It was the funniest thing ever. Had me laughing so hard. I used overhead lights, sunlight from window, and one softbox light on the left of her.

The other photo is of the alpha wolf (darker), play fighting with his brother at The International Wolf Center, Ely. I’ll be going back there and hope I’ll be able to take some good pictures of them again!

SOLD! Sold the next 3 books in the wolf/jaguar series!! One will be the jaguar, Howard’s story, the next Brock’s SEAL wolf story, and then another Silver Wolf Town Christmas!

Feeling better and then do a bunch of stuff and I’m wiped out again. And my teeth feel like they all need to be pulled this morning…again. Ugh. But at least I’m getting more stuff done. I spent all day yesterday taking care of baby and managing to get the teen demon trilogy formatted the day before, and the covers and books uploaded yesterday. They came back for final proofing today, so will be working on that next.

I’m still trying to come up with the opening for the new jaguar shifter book/Howard’s story. So I’ve been mulling that over. I know what her mission is and his mission is, but I have to figure out how they meet up and the conflict begins. 🙂

Okay, off to get to proofing. Have a terrific day!!!

Wolves R Us

I love how my kids “get” me.  It’s fun when you have a “hobby,” which for me is my writing wolf shifter stories, polar bear, cougar, and jaguar shifter stories. So if I get anything like that, I’m thrilled.

So here’s a goblet of your favorite brew in toast to the upcoming New Year!

Oh, and I hit a button, have no idea which, and my WordPress screen is tiny, tiny. I can still read it, but what did I do now? Ever do that????

Okay, off to write for a while. My goal is to get 10,000 this week on Claiming the White Bear. I have 7400 so far so maybe I’ll reach 12,000.

Have a lovely day!! A museum is on the schedule and a walk to see the town lights. The wolf reserve is closed all week, so we have to do it on Saturday and it will even be colder and snowy. We have minus 8 windchill this morning…..brrrrrr….

The Woods…

The original woods and then the fun versions using Topaz Labs. I had the baby over and sometimes while she’s sleeping, I can play with photos, but trying to do much of anything else is hard. We do a lot together and have fun though.

If I were writing about the woods, looking at the different pictures, it would evoke different moods for the story. Everything is a picture to me. I wrote 1,000 words last night after baby went home, and when I went to bed, I was thinking of another scene. I could see the Highlanders being angry with the encroaching clan, swords drawn, words spoken.  I was too tired to write it down, and that usually means I forget it by the time I wake up. But, thankfully, I still remember it, so will start with it first thing this morning.

I’m really at the end of the story, so I need to finish it up.

Oh, and so far, it looks like I don’t have a rat problem any longer. Max killed one of them. He’s the white one and so fast. Both Havanese are. They shoot out of the house like bullets, so I have to warn birds before I allow the dogs to leave the house. They’ve caught 3 birds, but that was before I started making them sit before I allow them to leave. They didn’t kill them, but caught them, and I made them release them, then I carried them out front so they could recover and they flew off.

The rats only come out at night, so last night and this morning in the dark, they would be on the feeders. I turn on the porch light and release the dogs. Last night there were none. And none this morning. So I might have found a natural deterrent. 🙂

Off to write!!! Have a wonderful day!

Playing around with Photoshop

The composite is made of a cemetery in Edinburgh–beautiful angel statue, the dog gravestones, Edinburgh Castle, a Texas moon. The fog and wolf were overlays.

Deer reflected in the water where there was none.

Time for grandbaby to come over. Which means no writing. I have kept up and I’m only 16,000 words from word count. Though a long way from finishing the story. Off to get ready!!

Have a lovely day!

Okay, so my grass is dying out in patches and I couldn’t figure out why. I have an automatic sprinkler. I kept meaning to check it out, so this morning, I finally remembered, and guess what?

Yep, it was OFF. No wonder my grass is dying in patches. But at least it’s an easy fix. I couldn’t have auto sprinklers anywhere else I’ve lived, so as long as they work, and I’ve turned them on for auto…it’s great!

Maybe it will rain again though. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

Playing around with Photoshop & Bound by Danger

macro-shot-of-flowers-and-sabine-and-zoerro-wolvesI learned how to create a signature as a brush. And how to add highlights to the letters, though I hadn’t done anything with this one and it just popped up that way. lol

Do you ever do things you’re clueless about and you have no idea why?

Anyway, these are pictures I took of a macro shot of crepe myrtle, and a regular shot of Zoerro, and Sabine in a compilation. She died, which was so sad, but they had become great friends.

Playing around with covers some more.

bound-by-danger-cover-new-water-900I loved this photographer’s shot, but the water was gray, foaming, waves, but no matter how I tried to colorize it, it wasn’t working. So I added water from two different photos, and I liked it much better.

In this story, I used the location of where I’d worked on active duty at Fort Hood. Two news stories had caught my attention at the time. One of the majors I worked with was being framed for selling arms to the enemy during the war, only he was just the general’s aide, and the general was the one responsible. So the Austin newspaper was following the story to ensure that he didn’t get crucified because he was in the wrong position at the time–and the little guy. Another story had just occurred too, and this one was about an unscrupulous literary agent–a scammer, who was asking for money from eager authors, who believed they would finally publish their baby through him. He was up on charges all over the place, changing his name, and fled to Canada, and had made over a million dollars in the fraudulent scam. He didn’t stop either. But he’d take everyone’s money, pretend he was busy reading their manuscripts, and they’d never hear from him again.

So I combined the two stories and created a fantasy, of sorts. She has future visions, and he’s a federal agent looking into her brother who worked for the literary agent. But they’re on a collision course with disaster as things heat up between them and people want her dead because she just knows way too much…

I actually started these characters in Deidre’s Secret when she was a teen in a YA story. I fell in love with the sister and brother and so then they had their grown-up story.

deidres-secret-1850

Bound by Danger

Army officer Deidre Roux has hidden her psychic abilities until now. But ominous visions plague her and between the martial arts tactics her twin brother taught her and the hand-to-hand combat she learned in the Army—she’s realizing just how important these skills are for her well-being.
When a reporter moves in next door, she’s not sure just what to think. Dave Carter owns a gun—it is Texas—and comes to her rescue when her brother suddenly drops into her life again. From there it’s the normal stuff that women and men tend to do when they’re getting to know each other—boating, swimming, dancing—except for one thing…she’s trying to keep her secret under wraps at all costs, which is difficult to do when she’s under surveillance by the FBI, and people keep wanting her dead.
Could a reporter, who’s not really a reporter, prove he might just have what it takes to keep her safe–for the long run?

Okay, 2,000 more words to go on White Wolf Christmas!! Have a super day!!

purple-sun-ray-at-sunset-kaleidoscope-640x427-wolf-caught-up-in-the-rainbow-of-lgihtThe original picture was a Scottish Highland setting, the purple lights caught in the photo, and I added a howling wolf, but I was having fun at Pixlr, a free photo editor and thought their kaleidoscope filter was pretty cool. https://pixlr.com/desktop     #pixlr

purple-sun-ray-at-sunset-640x427This was the original photo I shot. 🙂

Okay finished edits on Between a Wolf and a Hard Place and am back to finishing up White Wolf Christmas!

Have a fun day!!
