Deadlines, Deadlines

kitchen family room SpringI’m moving! It’s a huge, tremendous, gigantic, horrendous job. I have edits for the last book, promo stuff for the release in Feb, trying to finish packing, moving, cleaning old house, Realtor chomping at the bit to bring her clients out to see the house–yay!, and a million, billion, trillion things to do. No wonder I can’t sleep. I have a new book due Mar 1st, and I haven’t had time to even think about it.

I can’t sleep, naturally, too many things to get done. As soon as the world wakes up, oh, I know, lots of the world is already awake, but those I need to call: water dept, etc, are not awake here, I’ve got to get on the phone and start making more calls. But for now, I need to change my address EVERYWHERE. Tax stuff will be coming, and ack, I need it to go where I’ll be.

Anyway, you see the bow windows in the living room? Unless I change my mind, that’s where my desk will be.

I have a nice open kitchen, dining and living room, and I’m excited to finish this all up so I can get back to the business of writing.

I’m late, I’m late, I’m late… but I’m so thankful my son is here helping me to pack. I would never have managed to get it all done by myself by deadline! I thought I was doing well, but as we came home to get more boxes and begin the chore of packing again, I realized how much still needed to be packed and an extra couple of hands has really made a difference.

Have a great one! Back to moving-related stuff!!

We’re under tornado warnings, 26 mph winds, thunderstorms, and electric has gone out once. Best wishes to everyone in the affected areas and hope your holidays have been fun.

We have to brave the storms to do the closing on the house. 😦 Have a great Sunday!

Merry Christmas!

I’ve been packing and cleaning throughout the visit, but we saw the new Star Wars movie, went shopping for cowboy boots, ate lots, and played games. The weather has been in the 70’s, hot even for us for this time of year, but the frigid Arctic air is hitting us this weekend.

We were playing games, this was Munchkins, and the puppies had all finally conked out. Which meant I had to take some pictures without disturbing any of them.

Packing Puppies

I usually post first thing in the morning, but it’s hectic around here. So I turned in Billionaire edits, published Covert Cougar Christmas as a stand alone novella, and it’s available for sale now, and am working on promo blogs for the Feb release.

Covert Cougar Christmas

Cougar shifter, Dr. Kate Parker, is planning her annual camping vacation alone this year. She runs into trouble before she even starts her trip in the form of one wounded, hot cougar undercover cop—or so he says. He’s not going along with just her tender loving care because he came into town as a cougar, and he needs her help to get him back to where he can take up the search to look for an arms dealer, who just happens to be a cougar too.
Leyton Hill slipped into the unlocked, darkened clinic, figuring his luck had just changed. Except he doesn’t plan for the good doctor to be napping in her office. Taking him on her vacation wasn’t in the plan, and taking her hostage, hadn’t been either, but now she’s stuck with him until he can get back to his mission and the chase at hand. It appears the roles have reversed and who’s holding whom hostage now?

SEAL Wolf in Too Deep

Terry Spear

4 Stars

ISBN: 9781492621836

Review: Spear returns to her crime-filled world of wolf shifters, with plenty of emotional turmoil brought on by heinous acts and unspeakable danger. This is a sexy, smoldering tale of an alpha SEAL wolf shifter, and the woman who leads his heart into a dangerous passion. If you enjoy reading about uber-manly, hot-as-heck, possessive heroes, then this is a must-read!

And I’m packing.

Max: Mom can't mean to pack us in the boxes.

Max: Mom can’t mean to pack us in the boxes.

Tanner: Looks like it.

Tanner: Looks like it.

Max: Really Momma? Tanner: Just pose and maybe she'll let us go.

Max: Really Momma?
Tanner: Just pose and maybe she’ll let us go.

Yep, I’m packing and packing and packing. I can’t believe I have so much to pack. I keep thinking I have to almost be through, then I find more stuff.

Max hopped out of the box right off. Tanner followed, but when I put them both back in, Tanner was mugging it up for the camera. Max was ready to leave the box. 🙂

Okay, back to promo blogs and more packing.

Have a very Merry Saturday!

You Would Think…

If a critter is afraid of you, he’d go away from you. That bunny I was taking a picture of ran straight for me. And look what happens when the sparrow saw me photographing him.

And so he headed straight for me.

Happy TGIF….lots more to work on with edits, and I’m determined to get them done by Sunday. 🙂

Are You Ready for Christmas?

Can I join you for a meal?

I had to run a bunch of errands today, and I didn’t have time to drop by the grocery store, but still need to get a turkey.

Are you all set?

I turned in A Very Jaguar Christmas edits and am working on Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing edits. Intermittently, I take breaks to pack another box or 3.  Just like with the deadline on this, moving day is quickly approaching, and I have to have everything packed. Which is impossible because I have to still entertain for Christmas.

*sigh*

I look forward to a few days of just plain fun. But to get there, I need to get these edits done.

Hope you are having a great week!

Oh No! They Changed My Story!!!

East of the Sun, West of the Moon

Okay, not MY story, but I loved the Norwegian tale I read when I was a little girl.

Here is the version I read.

http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/norway034.html

I loved it but was so mad at the girl for dripping wax on him and making him go away. I felt sorry for him and loved him. Poor polar bear prince. The newer version doesn’t sound like it’s anything like my version. It’s supposed to be good for children to read. You know, probably the sanitized kind. Probably no exploding trolls and such. I like exploding trolls. I like to see the bad guys get their just rewards. 🙂

And why even bring it up???

It was the very first time that I had read about a shapeshifter and loved the sweet romance. My shapeshifters are not cursed to live their existence until someone can break the spell, yet, it made me see that shapeshifters could be just as sexy and lovable as anyone else.

I’m from the great grizzly bear state of California. And I have all kinds of different bear collections that I’ve collected over the years. And I make award-winning teddy bears. So it seemed natural to want to write about bear shifters. In honor of reading about a polar bear shifter, my first ever shifter tale, I decided to make it a polar bear shifter story.

But with all good tales, it must end so I can get back to edits on A Very Jaguar Christmas, which I was told was up on Amazon for preorder now!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1492621803

And that’s it for today. I must go back to my writing cave. Carpet was replaced in the two bedrooms, and rather than shove everything back in drawers and closets, packing it all up. 🙂 So no time for edits yesterday. Just more utter chaos.

Have a great one!
