Great Review!

You Had Me at Jaguar: Emotionally thrilling, sexy, witty and engaging adventure filled with heart pounding danger, exciting twists and unrelenting passion…. was a great read from beginning to end. Highly entertaining reading that was so hard to put down (house work was left undone…. LOL) was a great read!–Cali

I loved this review!

I’m still sick, still coughing my lungs out, and still barely getting any sleep. But despite that, I finally managed to write 7,000 words on the story yesterday. So I’m 8K over word count and still have a long ways to go. But I’m thrilled to finally be moving forward again to the end!

At least I finally could concentrate on the story yesterday, unlike earlier when, because of lack of sleep, everything was just a foggy mess, hard to concentrate and come up with ideas. I still need to sleep. Desperately. In the middle of the night, I envisioned three of me, each one taking turns to cough while something was coming out of the darkness to get me. The other night, I dreamed I was being choked to death, until I could finally get a cough out. So yes, nighttime hasn’t been my friend.

Okay, I’m off to cough and write and hopefully get somewhere with this. I was just asked for marketing materials for the book on top of that. No more deadlines! I need to finish this book.

Have a delightful day!!!

Romance Paranormal

He is only supposed to watch her back … not fall hard for her.

They’re not the only ones on the prowl…but they’re the most dangerous…

The United Shifter Force gives jaguar agent Howard Armstrong an impossible task—to protect fierce she-jaguar Valerie Chambers, when the last thing she wants is protecting. They’re going international to take down a killer and he can guard Valerie all day long. But guard his heart? He doesn’t stand a chance.

I’d rather write, but I need to ship some books and get my car safety inspected so I can get my new car registration. Don’t you hate it when other stuff gets in the way of stuff you have to and want to do?

Just get it done and get back to what you have to/need to do! Otherwise? It is hanging over your head like a big, dark cloud. And the worst of it is? Stuff like that starts to stack up. I also need to start gathering all my stuff for taxes. ugh. I want to finish this book, but I’ll probably start gathering stuff soon. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. And then? You’ll feel better. Hopefully. lol

Have a great day!!

The Routine

Goes out the window when baby is here. But if it was a regular day, I’d be writing! She’s eating breakfast, watching Vikings riding dragons. It’s important to see good dragons and not always growly ones to have some perspective!

Have a great day. We’re headed for the weekend and that means??? More writing for me!

I was so busy with taking care of baby yesterday and having her dad for dinner and working on Wolff brother’s story, that I totally forgot that You Had Me at Jaguar was out today!!!!!

You Had me at Jaguar

They’re not the only ones on the prowl…but they’re the most dangerous…

They’re going international to take down a killer and he can guard Valerie all day long. But guard his heart? He doesn’t stand a chance.

Well, it’s not a shifter Halloween, but You Had Me at Jaguar has both wolves and jaguars in it.

I’m off to do some more promo-ing on the book. Can’t believe I didn’t already do this, but I’ve been trying to get lots more done on Wolff brother–so that has been my focus for the last 4 no-baby days!

Have a beautiful day!!! And remember, not all jaguars are shifters, so be careful which one you hug.

Can’t Figure Out…

Okay, so I was trying to update my blog face and guess what? I can’t figure out how to do it. I’ve done it lots of times, but with the NEW IMPROVED version (growling like a jaguar here), I can’t find any of the add on buttons to change anything. I finally managed to remove the cover of the book that came out early last year, but no way to add the latest.

Don’t you wish that developers would leave a good thing alone? My son had me take a “test” while he was in his graduate computer programming courses and it was to see if the directions he had developed for a program were as simple as could be so that even I could understand them. They were! If I clicked on this button, it would take me to this place. And all the buttons I needed were there to take me where I needed to be so I could make the changes I needed to. Some of these businesses need to hire him.

I bet I’m not the only one having trouble with this! In fact, often when I Google stuff like this, tons of people are having trouble with the same issues. Maybe we’re all dumber than the average programmer. That’s okay. It needs to be simple for us dummies, folks. Most of us don’t have degrees in computer science. I did take COBOL, FORTRAN, and BASIC, so it’s not like I’m totally clueless and yet….I am.

Onward and upward! Like I said, I was updating my website and while I was doing it, I was updating my new release links for a couple of upcoming books. Kobo is still not listed for either.

Shifter Halloween

Shifter Halloween jaguar and wolf 1000

Shifter Halloween

by

Terry Spear

What if your best friend says she wants you to come over and have fun at her special Halloween party, costumes not necessary? But she’s always been a stickler for them. “If you’re going to party, do it right!” So it’s got you to thinking, what’s she up to this time?

You’re ultra-curious and you’ve been asking her all month long—what’s so special about this party? Who’s going to be there? You’re thinking old boyfriends, and she’s got some idea she wants you to get back together with one of them. You really haven’t a clue. You don’t want to go unprepared though.

Have you ever had a fear of the unknown? Sure, fear of the known can be pretty hard to overcome, too. But let your imagination run wild when you don’t have any idea what’s going to happen, and it can be seriously unfun.

Of course, you could chicken out. But you never chicken out and you’re not about to start now.

So feeling a little strange about not wearing a costume to Lila’s Halloween party, you arrive in jeans and a T-shirt featuring an old-time looking jack-o-lantern. You had to wear something! And you feel you’ve entered the “Twilight Zone” as soon as you walk in the door.

Everyone turns to look at you, men and women dressed in jeans and cotton shirts, no sign of anything Halloween-like, but it’s a veritable jungle in here. Jungle drums and the sounds of the rain forest are playing overhead.

The heater is on full blast. Humidifiers are pouring out wet air. Real plants fill the whole place, every table space, every wall covered in vines. A soft mist is sprayed through the air, making your hair drip and your mouth gape.

“Can she climb a tree?” a man asked, clutching an empty wine glass in his hand.

“Does she like to swim?” Another raked her with his golden gaze.

“Does she purr?” a woman asked, purring the words.

“Does she like to bite?” The first man set his empty glass down among a hodgepodge of greenery and took a step toward her.

Vampires, you’re thinking. Although you can’t imagine how your friend got mixed up with those, when they don’t exist.

Then a sleek golden cat wearing black ringed rosettes moves into view, a jaguar with green eyes studying you, her mouth opening to show a lot of very sharp wicked teeth. It can’t be her. Your best friend. But you smell her! And she’s no longer human!

You have to get out of here, now! Why didn’t she tell you?

Why didn’t you tell her?

Before anyone moves any closer, you lift your chin and howl, telling them to back off.

Hisses fill the air as if the room is full of vampires or riled up snakes or… jaguar shifters.

You didn’t know they existed!

You back up toward the door and escape. You hear the howls in the distance, responding to your own howl, but you don’t want your new wolf pack mates to fight these cats.

You give one last long look at your friend standing in the doorway of her house, appearing confused. And you wished you’d turned her first, just like you’d been turned…the night before.

Then you’re off, racing toward your pack.

Maybe, next year you’ll play it safe and just wear a costume and stick with the wolf kind. Or maybe, just maybe, you can find some common ground with the friend you used to know.

What do you think? Ready to play with the big boys with teeth?

You had me at Jaguar

I so hope you’ve enjoyed our Halloween fare! Until the next one then…

My Fence Is a Cat Thoroughfare

So I’m working on both Woodland Fae and The Witch and the Jaguar.

It was refreshing to see that my readers will read seasonal stories during any season! So I added 5,000 words to The Witch and the Jaguar and 2,000 words to Woodland Fae. But today, I have proofing work on You Had Me at Jaguar. So today is cat day. Oh, also, this is National Wolf Awareness Week. Just so you know.

Okay, I’m off to write! It’s raining and cold and perfect for Halloween, vampires, and cats that prowl in the night…and day.

Have fun!
