Mystery Crepe Myrtle Revealed!

It’s watermelon, and they’re down by the River Otter Pond. A stork must have brought me the baby crepe myrtle.  I love watermelon, it’s so vivacious.  And with the Purple Magic Crepe Myrtles, a pretty color combination. And they’re tall, so a nice shield from looking at my backyard neighbor. My daughter is fortunate. All her backyard neighbors have one-story houses.

Two of the crepe myrtle pictures are of the ones out front. Two lighter ones are of the one out back. Really different color of purple, but all pretty.  And I caught the peach roses in a bundle. I hadn’t seen them in a bouquet like that before.

Okay, have to write 9 blogs for SEAL Undercover release (August)–5 done yesterday, edits on Night of the Wolf (the novella I wrote for the 10th anniversary of Heart of the Wolf release, January), Cougar Undercover edits, and yes, I’ve had to put Falcon Fae aside for a moment.

But the other books are due the first week in July and the blogs too. We’re getting rain, light, a little wind last night, but it’s very calm. Hopefully, that’s all we’ll get and nothing major coming up from the tropical storm.

Have a great day!! I’ve got to get to working!!!

Wrong Days, Wrong Weeks

My computer is moving way slower than I am today. Don’t you hate that when it happens???

So yesterday, I was working hard to get lots more word count on Cougar Undercover, Dan’s story, (I’m at 26,000, in 3 days, not bad), playing around with a cover for it, and working on one for Chet’s story too, Christmas Cougar, another novella in the Christmas themed cougar stories with the Cougar Special Forces Agency.  I have the couple I want to use in Stryker’s story, but haven’t worked on the cover too much. Having a cover to look at helps me to write the story. Dan’s faux wife turned out to be a brunette, to my surprise.

When they’re finished, I’ll share.

I write romance, so I love statues that give that romantic feel. She’s either kissing him, or she’s whispering sweet nothings in his ear. What do you think? 🙂

Sooooooo, yesterday, I thought it was Wednesday, until I heard the garbage truck and realized it was Thursday. So I was thinking I might have enough time to actually write Cougar Undercover before I have to start on Billionaire Wolf Christmas. Somehow, I slipped a week, and I was thinking, oh no, I only have 6 days to finish this story. And I need to do the edits on Dreaming of the White Wolf Christmas too. So my excitement winked out.

Until I saw the date on my computer this morning. It’s only the 19th?????? Yay!!! So if I don’t have trouble writing the scenes, I can do it! Or if life doesn’t get in the way. Or other book edits.

This morning I had 3 female cardinals and one male visit the bird feeders. The male has chased other males away, but a harem of females? That works for him. 🙂

Okay, I’m off to write. Have some whimsy in your life, just for fun. 🙂

Fog of the Brain

fog, 900 026

Do you ever have so many projects to do, you don’t know where to begin?

Hopefully, I’ll begin them right and all will be done as planned.

I’m aiming to get the first 10,000 on Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf–which means 2,000 words today.

Plant 4 mini boxwood shrubs. I planted all the flowers last night until it got too dark to see what I was doing. 🙂 It’s supposed to rain today, so I’ll have to figure out where to put them sometime today.

Do edits my first beta reader sent to me and then turn this over to my second beta reader. Book is due April 1st, so running out of time.

AND, proof Exchanging Grooms for print. I really, really need to get all my ebooks into print. It’s already in audiobook too! So it needs to be in print. I spent a good part of yesterday formatting it and creating the cover.

Okay, that’s it!!! So as long as I do first things first–edits to Flight of the White Wolf, I’ll be all set to go onto the next assignment. No time for fog brain.

Have a great clear brain day and live up to your potential. You can do it!

The Next Time You’re Reading a Book…

…just imagine all the wonderful tales you can take part in. You see, you could be reading and along comes a shifter wolf, but he didn’t move quick enough and the cougar got the girl.

And so begins my tale.

It’s also a cautionary tale. Whosoever waits can easily lose out. Don’t wait, seize the day.

Oh, and this is the original picture I used for the composited picture (free from Unsplash). Also a blue misty woods background, the wolf, sun’s rays, and a butterfly. 🙂 ❤ I did a lot of curves manipulation to change the blue misty woods into something more green to match the foreground better. 🙂 ❤

I got my word count, should have the book halfway done by this weekend. 🙂 43,000 words to go.

Oh, and, I’ve been taking courses on compositing at Tara Lasher’s site and she now has a free giveaway of a Macbook, so be sure and enter! http://contest.taralesher.com/ref/k5200871/

Well, it’s time to get back to work. Hope you have a beautiful day!!

Cougar’s Mate–99 Cents for Limited Time

99 Cents for Limited time!! 🙂 If you haven’t picked up the hot cougar, you know you want him. 🙂

Cougars Mate FINAL 11292013 copy

Cougar’s Mate: Instinct told her to run…

Shannon Rafferty learns that hanging out with the bad boys could be a dangerous business, but hooking up with a cop is even worse. Now she’s on the run, trying to avoid being murdered by his cougar shifter brothers and uncle. If that isn’t bad enough, a deputy sheriff hunts her down while she’s running as a cougar and trying to survive in the Colorado wilderness. He vows to protect her no matter what she’s done. With three dead boyfriends to her name, she’s sure she will be the death of Chase Buchanan before either of them can prevent it. No matter how much she knows she has to run again, he soon holds her heart hostage. But will that be enough to keep them both alive?

Chase Buchanan—as wilderness cabin resort owner, former US Army Special Forces, and part time deputy of the small town of Yuma, Colorado that boasts a love of cougars—is tasked to track down a cougar reported to be hunting human prey. Chase soon learns she’s a shifter, not a full-time cougar, and she’s on the run. When he takes her in, he vows to protect her. After losing his wife and baby to the human kind of predator years earlier, he’s not letting Shannon’s hunters kill her, too. But how is he going to hold onto the wild-cat woman, who is unpredictable at every turn, without losing his heart to her, and then losing her as well?

This could be said about a professional anything. 🙂 ❤

It poured rain here this morning, nothing in the forecast to say we’d have rain! But that’s great. We need it.

Have a great day!

I Said No!

I agreed to give an author a quote who asked me a while back, despite all the deadlines I’m still on. But I look forward to reading her book at the end of the month. It sounds like a lot of fun.

But I said No! to a boxset that an author approached me on because I just can’t keep saying yes. To everything. 🙂  Plus, it’s really important if I’m going to do it, if it’s the same genre. I don’t think any of them write paranormal. Some readers love to read everything. Raising hand here. But some have specific genres they love. So it’s better to be in a specific genre.

I was in one once where we had a futuristic story, and some paranormal readers felt gypped. There were 21 stories in the boxset for only 99 cents! Just one was futuristic. lol

Is that me, or is someone else looking back at me?–Male cardinal pondering his shadow.

I didn’t meet my word count goal yesterday. 😦 I had lunch with the author who needs a quote and had to pick up more goody bags and stuff for the reader’s convention, then got home and did 1200 words, but needed 2,000. *sigh*

Still puppy sitting, so it’s been trips outside a million times, and hard to concentrate. Just as I get in the zone, I have to stop for more puppy stuff.

Off to the novella! Only 5800 words to go! Must wrap this puppy up!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Loving the White Bear and Galaxy Warrior are Out!

loving-the-white-bear-generic
Loving the White Bear
Jan 2017
Rob MacMathan and his brother and a friend run the White Bear Wilderness Adventures Tour, White Bear, where polar bear shifters have staked a claim. This is their last tour group of the season, but when photojournalist, Alicia Raycroft, touches Rob and envisions what he sees, though her paranormal abilities deal with psychometry, whereas he’s clairvoyant, they’re both stunned. He witnesses a fight with an enraged grizzly; she sees a polar trying to eat her, which he interprets to mean he’s wearing his polar bear coat and trying to save her. In no way can he reveal the truth to her. Yet, just that connection between them pushes them to go beyond his self-imposed boundaries with both a client and a human.
Alicia is fascinated with Rob, not only because he’s rugged and handsome and just as interested in her, he intrigues her like no other man has ever done when her touching him reveals he has abilities like she has. She envisions a white bear coming for her as snow swirls about her in the Alaskan wilderness, yet she’s determined to take this trek even if it’s her last. She believes fate is predetermined and nothing she will do can change the outcome anyway. Alicia and Rob are already headed down one dangerous path, so why not risk a chance at love too? Only he has more dark secrets he’s unwilling to share

Galaxy Warrior
January 2017

Passionate embraces men and women

He’s a fighter pilot fighting the good fight in the Great Galaxy War, but when his spacecraft’s navigation is sabotaged and he’s stuck on an inhospitable desert planet awaiting repairs to his ship, he believes one woman might make his stay on the planet more than…hospitable. But the woman isn’t like any that Quaid Lassiter has ever met. She has secrets that can get him killed.

Zaira Cole is a shapeshifter, a pacifist, and is helping her scientist brother to turn the desert planet green. Her people must find the scrolls to give the High Council legitimacy and solicit help from Quaid Lassiter to train their pilots to fight in the war headed their way when they’ve always been a neutral planet. But she wants him for more than that. It’s mating season, she’s just turned of age, and she’s selected him for her mate. Now all she has to do is convince the Prince of Orion, he wants the same. And so the battle begins.

I’ll add links as I get them. I’m working on the novella for Heart of the Wolf now, then back to Flight of the White Wolf!
Have a terrific day!
