Hummingbird–like a Fairy Bird

 

They’re like little fairies, so small, so busy, and so territorial!

In the clearest shot, I was able to rest my camera on my printer to get a more stable shot. I did it when he had his back turned to me.

The others were handheld because he could see me when I got close to the window and when I tried to move to the printer to use it as a makeshift tripod, he flew off. In the last, he was resting on the dead part of my neighbor’s tree. It was raining that day and at one point he was shaking out his feathers to get rid of the raindrops.

I finished proofing Heart of the Wolf and sent it back to the editor. The re-release will be out in January. It includes Night of the Wolf, a new novella.Heart of the Wolf

I’m now working on Billionaire Wolf Christmas again. I’m behind. *sigh* But I hadn’t expected to get the edits on Heart of the Wolf, so that put me another day behind.

If I were as fast as the hummingbird, I would whip all those words into order. But writing doesn’t work like that. 🙂

Have a super great day!!!

Guardian of the Secret Garden

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia, Book 2


An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.

Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.

Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.

And that’s the beginning of the trouble.

First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…

Gardens dwarf statue 900 020

When I saw this dwarf in the gardens, I thought of my fantasy trilogy. Which, I need to still finish. The story is: I wrote the first two, had the idea for the third, couldn’t sell the first two, this was in the dinosaur time before ebooks and indie publishing, and so I put it on hold. THEN, I sold other books to publishers and was so busy writing them, and new books, and more new series, and more and more and more, and…well, you get the idea, don’t you?

I have started on it, but I have edits on Flight to finish today, need to finish writing Bounty, and I’ve been thinking about Billionaire.

*sigh*

But right after this, it’s time to reread Flight and make sure it’s ready to turn in.

I did finally plant the flowers this morning, and dug up some of the grass. I need to keep working on that though. 🙂  And I saw a hummingbird flying around the birdseed feeders. The flowers I planted are all hummingbird flower plants and butterflies love them too.

Some days I want to just slip into a fantasy.

Enjoy your day!!! Hope that it is just as magical. 🙂

Golden Fae is Out!

fairy artworkAt the Renaissance fair, an artist was painting this. Isn’t this beautiful?

MN and Ren Fair 124 (427x640) fairyA picture I took of the winged fae at the fair.

Faeries and Swamp (640x427)Do you see the fairy house?

fairy garden (640x601)And this way to the fae…

Art project: beautiful woman with golden make-up. Jewelry, make-up. Fashion. Over black background.

How does the golden fae get into big time trouble with one fiery dragon? When playing with fire…

All the golden fae wanted to do was to pick mushrooms for her mother—in the forbidden dragon fae territory, but Kayla sees dragons practicing for their games, and she gets caught at it. She loses her locket that she needs to have when she comes of age in just a couple of weeks so she can keep her magic as a lavender grower for the golden fae. Only now, one highly annoying dragon shifter fae has got it, and she will do anything to get it back.

Alton can’t believe it when the golden fae arrives at his friend’s castle wearing the dragon fae aura now! But he has a mission to go on, save a human and a dragon fae in the human world, and Kayla ends up there offering to help—anything to get him to give her locket back to her. Only a fae seer shoots him with an iron bolt, and Kayla risks everything, trying to get him and the captured maid safely back home again.

Now he will do almost anything to learn the mysterious golden fae’s secrets, and protect her from his own kind at all costs.

We have strong storms through Thursday of next week. I was working on bears last night, taking a break on books for a moment, have 4 bear orders, but then I did write about 500 words of the beginning of SEAL Wolf Undercover. 79,500 words left! But you gotta start somewhere! 🙂 And I got groceries!

Have a lovely day. I predict–rain, for here anyway! 🙂 ❤

Taking an Out of this World Photograph!

Oh, okay, so some would say it’s just a mistake. But to me, it’s the coolest thing ever.

And it all had to do with taking pictures of all the dogs sitting on our laps while we were playing a video game and having to say the spells out loud. I’m sure that one of the spells created the vortex.

Some would say not.

But isn’t that the joy of making up stories?

Note how serious everyone is.

lap puppies (360x640)

jennifer cast spell (360x640)

Jennifer cast the spell!

a spell (360x640)

We were caught up in the spell’s vortex.

No, this was not photoshopped. It really happened just this way.

So just remember when taking a picture and a spell is being cast, beware that you might just catch the whole thing on disk.

Thankfully, we came out of it all just fine. 🙂 Puppies and humans alike.

And that’s my story…

Love is Enduring

A while ago, I saw a posting where a woman showed off her lovely roses that had dried up, no longer bright and cheerful, blushing with new color. They were aged and beautiful in their own right.

The leaves and the purple flowers have held their colors, the roses are fading into an antiqued look. These are my birthday flowers from my son–two weeks old And to me, they are as pretty as ever, in an antiqued kind of way.

My parents' gift to me copy

My parents are long gone, but like the flowers they sent to me when my daughter was born, they live on forever. My father didn’t give my mother bouquets of flowers. They didn’t last long for the money spent on them, she’d say. But these are well over two decades old and have made moves twice, and yet, they still are beautiful, a special gift I will treasure always. Love is everlasting.

******************************

The problem with working on books and then turning them in, is they come back for edits. Then second round of edits. Then final edits. Then proofing edits.

The good thing is that I’ve written 4 more books while that happens, so every time a book comes back for edits, I’m all right with it because it’s been a while since I read it last!

The bad thing is that I’m working on a current book and hate to leave that story behind because each story I’m working on, either new, or the edited finished book, I really get into. Then it’s hard for me to get back to the book I’m working on.

The good thing is that the edited book A Hero of a Highland Wolf, will be out in August, so that’s a time to celebrate. And the other good news is that while I’m working on the current book, I will be reminded that, hey, I finished a book before, I can do it again.

039bc-herohighlandwolf-30028487x80029

The bad news is that it makes me behind on my word count for the new book.

Soooo, I wrote 5,000 on Monday to make up for it, and have to write another 5,000 to make my word count for the week. And have 25,000 words left to go.  This is where I’m coming down to the wire. I’ve got to ensure I’ve wrapped up all the loose ends, I have to make sure that everything in the story is important to the story. I have to figure out who the bad guy is. 🙂

Sometimes, I know from the start. Sometimes, I like the bad guy too much and can’t make him the bad guy. LOL

So there you have it. Not even I know how this will end.

I’m off though, to get more of something done.

Have a delightful Tuesday!
