His powers of persuasion are impossible to resist…

While her overprotective brother’s away, Meara Greymere’s planning to play—and it wouldn’t hurt to find herself a mate in the process. The last thing she needs is one of his SEAL buddies spoiling her fun, even if the guy is the hottest one she’s ever seen.

Finn Emerson is a battle-hardened Navy SEAL and alpha wolf. He’s a little overqualified for baby-sitting, but feisty Meara is attracting trouble like a magnet.

I’ve been struggling all morning with my computer to try and post this. First, WordPress wouldn’t come up to allow a post. And I’ve just had trouble with everything. I was having the same issues last night, so gave up on trying to post. So here ’tis!

It’s FREE!!! FREE!!! FREE!!!

I’m behind on my writing word count. Confession is good for the soul, right???? Okay, then come the excuses. This book came up free, and I was scrambling to get the word out. 🙂 I did manage 1600 words yesterday, but I’m editing, not writing whole new scenes, and that means the book is getting better, but it’s not growing by leaps and bounds like when I just write new scenes. So that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

🙂 You’re allowed to make up stories too!

As soon as I post this, I’m off to catch up on other stuff and then write!!!

Sunrise this morning was so bright red/pink. Yesterday sunrise was light ribbons of pink. And last night a subtle warmth.

Thanks to everyone who has shared about the free book. My publisher gives away free books like NEVER, so it’s a big deal. This is for ebooks, only. Just to be clear!!! Wouldn’t it be great if they were print books too?

Have a wonderfully, fun and exciting and adventurous day–in a good way!

Cover Reveal!

dreamingwhitewolfchristmas_select

Romance writer Candice Mayfair’s life changes forever when a werewolf pup bites her and turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. As everyone knows, a newly turned wolf shifter has all kinds of issues―and for Candice it’s even worse―not being able to control her shifting is messing with her deadlines. Now it’s nearly Christmas and Owen Nottingham is searching for the woman one of his pint-sized pack members accidentally turned. He’s on a mission to convince the she-wolf to join his pack…and be his mate.

Coming in October!

When I was preparing to take this shot, mindful that birds have a habit of moving, I thought the blurred fame of the windows on the house on the block way behind my backyard and the side yard of my neighbor’s and across the street from them was really interesting. I could have changed the setting to make it even more blurred, but I really loved the way the house framed the bird and the windows were featured in an artistic way.

Okay, so I spent the day brainstorming Flight of the White Wolf and made a little progress on it. A 1,000 words, I think. The new prologue will change things a bit, and so I’ve got to go through and change it from he’s never met her in ch 1, to he’s met her in the prologue and it wasn’t a really good meeting. Which changes the dynamics completely, in a fun way. I had to add some conflict between them.

I also sent Loving the White Bear in for final proof after finishing minor edits, and it came back with cover text was in the margins, when they didn’t have any trouble with it before. So it’s back to review again.

I’m off to type up notes and hopefully get some word count in today. I am so far behind on it, that I’m going to have to revise my word count goals. 😦

Have a super great day!!!

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!

A Christmas Story from Caryn Moya Block

The Volkov Twins and The Christmas Cookies

By Caryn Moya Block

russian-tea-cakes

While snow fell outside coating the ground in a blanket of white, inside the Siberian Alpha’s lodge a different kind of snow fell as Katya, Karina, and Illarion make Christmas cookies for the Alpha and his mate.

Babushka – Grandma, Illarion is going too fast. I can’t keep up with him,” five year old Karina complained glaring at Illarion, the boy who in the future would be her twin sister Katya’s mate. The three of them stood around the table in the kitchen. Karina’s grandmother, Yelena, looked over, but went back to playing with their new baby sister, Vera.

“Me do, me do,” their three year old little brother Rurik demanded as he jumped up and down at the edge of the table. His dark hair fell around his face while his blue eyes begged to be included. Illarion winked at Rurik.

“Rurik,” Yelena called. “Could you get me the diaper bag? Vera needs changing.” The little boy ran to his grandmother across the room.

She whispered something in his ear and he grinned widely before scampering off to find the bag full of diapers.

“You don’t have to be so exacting, Karina. Just roll the cookie in the sugar,” Illarion said, leaning over to plop another ball into the bowl of powdered sugar.

“It has to be evenly coated. You wouldn’t want a cookie only partially covered.” Karina dipped her fingers back into the bowl of sugar and rolled the cookie balls around making sure each one was dusted. “It has to be done properly! Katya, tell him.” Karina looked at her twin sister, hoping for back up.

“Karina,” Katya sighed, “Would you like me to help you with the powdered sugar?” Katya took the sugar covered balls out of the bowl and set them in rows on the cooking sheets.

“No, I can do it. I want to surprise Mom and Dad when they get back. Mom said Russian Tea Cakes are her favorite Christmas cookies.”

Illarion wrinkled his nose. Katya glanced over at him and chuckled.

Karina frowned wondering if they spoke telepathically to each other. It was hard sharing Katya with the older Illarion. He was so irritating at times, acting like he knew better than Karina what her twin was thinking. Katya was her sister.

“What? You don’t like Russian Tea Cakes?” Karina asked.

“I like all the food that comes out of this kitchen, isn’t that right, Yelena?” Illarion asked, walking over to the sink and washing his hands.

Karina looked over and realized that only a few cookies were left to be dusted. Katya pulled over one more cooking sheet and began to fill it.

“Oh, yes, Illarion. You eat everything.” Yelena wrapped the baby back up in a blanket and then kissed Vera on the nose.

“We’re almost done, Babushka. Karina only has six or so to go.” Katya said.

“Leave the trays of cookies, I’ll deal with them after I lay your sister down for her nap.” Both Karina and Katya nodded.

“Katya, I thought of a gift for your parents,” Illarion said, his light blond hair falling across his eyes. He swiped it out of the way. “If, you and Karina want to do it?”

“What?” Karina asked. Did he really have a good idea or was he teasing again?

“I thought I could take your picture on the camera your Mom bought me for my birthday. You could make a nice frame and give the picture to them for Christmas.”

“Wow, that sounds great,” Katya said. “What do you think, Karina? Mom and Dad won’t be home until dark. We could go outside and take a few pictures once you’re done coating the last cookies.”

Karina thought a moment, and then picked up her pace with the dough balls. Mom loved pictures and Dad loved whatever made Mom happy. “Okay. All done,” she said and wiped her hands on a towel. “Let’s go, if it’s all right with you, Babushka?”

“Go. I’ve got my hands full with your little brother and sister. Don’t forget a wrap,” Yelena called after the children running out the back door. She shook her head and ruffled Rurik’s hair. “Don’t worry Rurik, I have a project you can help me with once Vera is asleep.”

Fun with Photographing Cardinals

cardinals 069 (640x427)female on chair mohawk (640x427)female on basket below peanuts (640x427)

The female was sitting on the seed plate, the sunflower seeds all gone. But she was sitting there as if waiting for me to bring out the seeds.

female at feeder (640x427)female on seed plate (640x427)

Then she went to the feeder.

To the chair.

Then discovered the new suet/peanut/sunflower seed feeder overhead. She was up there and gone so fast, I was only able to get one shot that wasn’t really clear. She hasn’t been back since, at least while I’ve been watching. The male was looking for the seeds on the patio. I put those down there for some of the birds that like to eat them off the patio. The other feeders, the finch one is empty because I don’t have any finches. And so none of the birds ate the seeds. I finally poured it out for them. The one below that similarly can remain filled for months and not be touched. So the like the simple plate with the seed on it. The reason it’s broken? The wild cat that roams the area knocked the table over and broke that and a decorative planter I had sitting on there. 😦

And that’s my fun with photographing cardinals.

Back to writing…

Have a super day!

I LOVE Creating Stories…

Taming the Wild Cougar WEB 05082015

Do you love doing something LOTS? I’ve loved creating stories since I was a kid. My dad told us stories when I was young too. It’s just something I have to do. And I love doing it.

So I’ve been working away at Cougar and it’s really getting closer to being finished.

I decided to set up a preorder for Taming the Wild Cougar. Everyone will have a chance to buy it at the reduced price of 99 cents (USD) for the brand new full length novel. I’ve never done a PREORDER for a book this far in advance for a single title. And I’ve never offered a brand new release as practically a giveaway. This will not last long. Just through the first week of release, and then it will be available at the regular price of $4.99. So if you’d like it, be sure and get it early! 🙂

http://www.amazon.com/Taming-Wild-Cougar-Heart-Book-ebook/dp/B012PQGRUS/

cougar turning (640x427)

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?
