Next Year Will Be a Decade!

Next year, I’ll have been with my publisher for 10 years. I’m one of the first who signed with Sourcebooks. And they’re going to redo two of my covers.

White Wolf and Heart of the Wolf giveaways 002 (1280x853).jpg glitter and suns raysHeart of the Wolf was my first book with them and it made Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year for a mass marketed book. Only 5 make it a year, and they’d never had a book make that, nor have they since. I thought everyone who was published, who was really big time, made that. What did I know. I was a total newbie. So I mentioned it on a published author loop and people were asking me how I got that. lol  So in celebration, they’re supposed to be redoing the cover of Heart of the Wolf and I need to add something to it. They’re also going to do a special new cover for Legend of the White Wolf, my 3rd book in the series, because I’ll be doing a white wolf series within the series and they want them more uniform.

They were brand new at the business of romance at the time, so they didn’t quite have the feel for what a winning cover should look like. But now they make the most beautiful covers, so I’m excited. Heart of the Wolf has a beautiful wolf, but I never liked the gray headless torso. And Legend of the White Wolf is more of an illustration, and doesn’t fit with the rest of the series.

I made USA Today Bestseller for my ninth release, A SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing. And I just made Romantic Times Top Pick for Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing, along with two big hitters, Christine Feehan and Sherrilyn Kenyon. That is a huge deal. Especially for me. So super excited! 🙂 ❤

But now I’m pulling my head back out of the clouds…

It’s sooooo hot here, but I’m glad to have the puppies to cuddle again. 🙂

Sugar Baby Watermelons!

watermelon 005 (640x427)watermelon 001 (427x640)watermelon 002 (640x427)watermelon 007 (640x427) watermelon 008 (640x427)Five of them! Have you ever been looking for something–constantly, and never see it right in front of your eyes? I’ve been checking the watermelon plant over constantly, and I only just saw the 5 watermelons on the plant, when they had to have been growing there for a few days. Aren’t they the cutest, hairiest little things? I’ve never grown them before–can you tell?–which is why I didn’t know exactly what would happen. I thought the flower would produce the watermelon like with tomato plants or bell pepper plants, but instead, the watermelon is behind the flower and then the flower dies off.

The same thing happened with my other bell pepper plants. All of a sudden, they are filled with peppers!

kaleidoscope butterfly bush (640x427) (2)It’s supposed to be all different colors. And I wait, and I watch, and I wait, and I watch….

And of course if I’m taking pictures of something, Max has to check it out too. Must be something really important.

max and the butterfly bush (640x427)And I was excited to capture a shot of my first butterfly–a black swallowtail. Now, it wasn’t easy. He was flying so fast and not sitting still on anything and I was whipping my camera around, trying to focus on him. So first shot out of four (the other three, he was gone), and I caught a blurry one of him. But still cool because I could identify him. Maybe he’ll land sometime and I can get a better shot. There are a couple of others I’ve seen. One looks like a Monarch, and the other, not sure. It was all orange, probably had some markings, but moved too fast.

I’m off to revise more on Between a Wolf and a Hard Place. 65 pages done, 140 to go. So making progress. 🙂

Have a super wonderfully magnificent day!!!

I’m sure they have a nest nearby. They were at the feeder constantly today all day long. They only stopped eating for a little bit while a blue jay ate there and a red-bellied woodpecker.

red bellied woodpecker tossing seeds (640x427)The red-bellied woodpecker is tossing seeds, like a finicky eater. Instead of just digging for what he wants, he throws the other seeds out of the tray. I think this one’s smaller than the other I had.

purple party bear (608x640)I finished up a Purple Party Bear that’s ready to ship along with 2 other bears, and another that belongs next door. 🙂

While I was working on the bear, the puppies were totally worn out.

Max and Tanner tired (640x427)What a life, eh?

And!!! I kept up with my word count. 🙂 ❤

Have a great day!

Sprouting Havanese Instead of Tomatoes

max and the tomato bin 004 (640x402)I bought two of these to grow tomatoes in. And the next thing I knew while I was putting the wheels on one, the other had sprouted a Havanese. So Max is looking for the tomatoes to eat. Tanner is checking to help out.

max and the tomato bin 007 (640x295)What are you two doing?

Who? Us????

Have a super fun day!
