Footprints in the Sand

bird-footprints-in-the-sand-900-079

Do you see the human prints? The birds are so much more numerous, they left their mark all over the humans’ prints. Or maybe this is one bird’s prints and he’s just going around and around. Nah.

Both His Wild Highland Lass and Vexing the Highlander are now in print! Working still on Loving the White Bear and Galaxy Warrior.

Have to stop on Flight of the White Wolf (over a fourth way done) to finish edits on Night of the Wolf (for the rerelease of Heart of the Wolf, coming in January). Then back to the book due in April!!

His Wild Highland Lass

His Wild Highland Lass
Lady Sorcha Barclay has fled her sister’s husband’s castle because of his unwanted advances, except men steal her horse, and she makes the mistake of not keeping to the cover of the nearby forest. An awe-inspiring circle of standing stones capture her attention and she captures the attention of the laird who owns the land.
Laird Ronan Daziel takes Sorcha to his castle to protect her and give her a home, but before long, he wants much more. He’s duty-bound to take a wife whose clan wishes an alliance with his. So why does he long to have something more? Everyone loves the lass just as much as he does. But he has pledged his loyalty to his clan and taking Sorcha to wife could lead to battle on several fronts. How can he not take her for his own when she stole his heart from the first moment he laid eyes on her near the ancient standing stones on his lands?
Note: This is still available in Kissing the Highlander anthology now offered as an individual novella

Lady Aila MacIntosh hopes she doesn’t regret the king’s marital choices for her and her sister. Until one braw Highlander bumps into her at the king’s gathering. He’s as taken with her as she is with him, until she learns he is but a commoner, when she is a lady. The king would never make a match between them. Alban of the Clan Daziel meets a beautiful woman at the king’s court, only she is a lady and out of his reach. When the lady and he meet under awkward circumstances, they chance to overhear a plot to assassinate the king. Their lives spiral out of control and losing his heart to Aila is only one of his pressing concerns. Protecting her from those who wish the king dead—his greatest.

Savage Hunger–Rights Sold to Tantor to Produce in Audiobook Format!

Super news for the first book in my Heart of the Jaguar series. Tantor just bought the rights to produce Savage Hunger in audiobook format. It’s my first sale to them, so this is ultra exciting for me.

I also just received this fantastic review on Savage Hunger from Lost in Books by Cassandra, as though it was fate that both would happen on the same day. 🙂

You know I’m teasing, right?  🙂

My Thoughts – 5 out of 5 Unicorns – I loved it!!!

I love Kat as a character.  She is brave and confident and doesn’t want to just sit around while everyone else does the protecting.  But my favorites are Maya and her twin brother, they are awesome how they stick together and go out on a limb for each other 😉  I’m hoping Maya’s story is next 🙂  There is plenty of action and conflict in this story to keep you hooked. 

 

Terry does an awesome job of building the world because I was never bored reading it.  If I wasn’t watching my sister’s kids (4 of them), I’d have read this in one sitting 🙂

 

I highly recommend this book to my shifter loving friends, jaguar lovers & those who already love Terry Spear!!  Can’t wait to read more and since I have next book with me on vacation it will be soon!!!

 

Interested in reading???

And I’m back to working on edits to Her Highland Hero, and writing the novella: His Wild Highland Lass.

I was pondering the novella this morning. I had reached 12,000, but the problem with writing a 20,000-word piece of work is that you have to get to the point pretty quickly. So I was thinking about the opening and I’m going to have to rework it, have the hero see her sooner, not the build up so much, like I can do in a longer novel. But I want also to have her see him first. It means my word count will go down to begin with, but when I add her new scene it, that should bring me back up on word count. In the end, all that matters is the story turns out right. 🙂 I always have to just write away, and then I begin to see who the characters are, what their pasts are, what the problem is. I often can’t figure that out by trying to plot it out first. And  in the end, that works for me!

My beta readers LOVE Her Highland Hero, soooo, it’s on track. 🙂 And I can’t wait to share it soon! Oh, and that’s why I didn’t post yesterday! Juggling 2 books at the same time. Back to juggling!

Have a super, lovely Saturday!!

Sometimes Books Get in the Way

Yep, I’m a writer, and that means sometimes I have to just write–the book.

So Her Highland Hero is done and off to beta readers.

But we’ve had so many bad storms, that I’ve had to get off the computer a couple of times today, and yesterday.  What can you do if you can’t be on the computer? I worked on teddy bears. I couldn’t watch TV either!

But now I’m back to working on the latest project: His Wild Highland Lass, novella, a prequel to the Highland series and it will be featured in the anthology, Kissing the Highlander, coming in Feb.

The “fun” I had with this story is that I had to figure out dates. I thought I had it figured out–she was born in 1080, wait, that would be her sister’s oldest son’s age. Back to the calculator. 🙂 So after much playing around with dates, I finally came up with 1065, the year before William of Normandy conquered England. 🙂

You know what? It’s a lot easier to go forward in time, I figured, then going back in time and matching up dates for everyone else that have already been written about! 🙂

This rolled in yesterday afternoon, and I didn’t do anything with the photo, but shared it just as it looked on the camera. Really ominous. Torrential rains.

bad storms (640x427)Here are some earlier ones for the storm earlier in the day, showing off the sunflowers and cornfields and I caught a bird flying in that one.

Okay, I’m off to get some more work done on His Wild Highland Lass! The good thing is we agreed to about 20-23,000 words and that’s about 100-115,000 words for 5 of us.

And 20K is a piece of cake, right?

Well, maybe. It means writing shorter, writing one main plot and naught else, and so lassies and laddies, you can never tell.

Storms looked to be clearing out until early morning. Which means I have no excuse not to be writing. Have the 1st 1,000 done, 19,000 or so to go!

Have a lovely Wednesday!

Have a super great Tuesday!
