******************************
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!

Edits and 3-D English Iris!


Kelly Dunn, professional photographer extraordinaire said it looked like a 3-D picture. I thought that was pretty cool! :) 

Well, I worked on A Highland Wolf Christmas edits until after midnight last night, and until 10 am this morning, no Internet until it was done and turned in.

So I'm late on my blog.

And I thought I'd have fun with a picture. This was the purple English Iris before I turned it into a black and white photo.


Here is the book I've worked diligently on to turn back in. Coming in October!


And now I'm working again on A SEAL Wolf for Sale! No cover for it yet.


Trying to reach 50,000 by tomorrow. Back to work!

Are you having a fun Saturday???

“Exciting paranormal romance with sweet hero and strong heroine!”

Cougar’s Mate
Terry Spear

Reviewed by Miranda Owen
Posted April 10, 2014

COUGAR’S MATE is Book 1 in Terry Spear’s Heart of the Cougar series. As a longtime fan of Terry Spear, I was very excited to hear about this new series about cougar shifters. Happily for me, I really enjoyed this book. There is a lot of action in COUGAR’S MATE, but it doesn’t obscure the romance.
At the beginning of the story, Shannon Rafferty is a woman in crisis.Chase Buchanan is the sexy, incredibly sweet lawman she runs into. Chase is a dream.
Chase’s buddies — Hal, Dan, and Stryker — are all great guys and I look forward to reading stories about them in future books. They are all tough, former military types, but they all have a wonderful caring side. I love the way the entire town took Shannon in and supported her like one of their own. The town and the feeling of community and family it provides Shannon are almost equally as seductive as Chase’s charms. COUGAR’S MATE is an exciting paranormal romance with a strong heroine and a sweet, sexy hero!

RATING: 4.5 Stars  photo images_zps952b51e7.jpg
There is absolutely nothing I didn’t love about Cougar’s Mate by Terry Spear. This is one of those books that grabs you right from the first page and doesn’t let go until the last.
“She’d never felt she was cursed, but what if she was? With three dead boyfriends to her name?”
“Hell, he loved her for all her vulnerability, her sassiness, her caring, everything that made her the she-cat that she was. Somehow, he would save her.”
 photo images1_zpsfe5b83e4.jpg
This book has humor and romance and lots of heart pounding action. I loved every page of it. If you enjoy shifter books, then you will love this book. This was my first book by Terry Spear and most definitely will not be my last.

Instinct told her to run…

Cougar’s Mate pulled me into the story from page one and kept me reading until the last word.
What’s especially enjoyable is Ms. Spears’, slow build up to the physical relationship between Shannon and Chase. It’s not rushed which makes it feel natural. Just when you think things are going Shannon and Chase’s way, trouble rear its head.
During the last part of the story I didn’t want to put the book down so I could continuing reading and see what happened to this pair.
Cougar’s Mate is the first of a new series by Ms. Spears and I can’t wait for book two.

Woohoo!!! Okay, enough dancing around the room, or skipping outside to take pictures. Time to ship books and then get back to the business of writing.

Any plans for the weekend???

Happy Wolf Day!

I think Happy Hump Day should be Happy Wolf Day. What do you think?

My spring flowers, note all the purple ones? And a cottontail bunny caught while I went out with Sir Rilo, my daughter's Welsh Pembroke Corgi. This time the bunny was used to me taking the dog out and he didn't hop off. So I came back out, without the dog, and took some pictures. Bunnies and spring just seem to go together.

I just got A Highland Wolf Christmas final edits to do, and am working on A SEAL Wolf for Sale, halfway done! So back to work! Have a Happy Wolf Day!!!






Don't you love purple flowers?

Cougar's Mate
Parnormal Romance - Cat Shifters
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?

~ 5 Cougar Stars ~ 

Cover is awesome and sexy! Very attractive and inviting.

I love it when I find a book I can not put down even though I know I need to; because it’s so late. Cougar’s Mate is one of thous amazing book’s that you just can't put down until you have finished. What an astonishing beginning to a wonderful new series by Terry Spear. She has created a fascinating world full of fun characters, adventure, suspense and passion. I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoy Ms. Spear's writing style and the easy flow, the character development and the plot. I am such a fan of Terry Spear and was blown away by her new series Heart of the Cougar.

Now onto Cougar’s Mate :

So many things happen once you open the first page. Ms. Spear throws us into Shannon’s life. She is a strong woman determined to survive. She has made some bad decisions in the boyfriend department as well as had a difficult life growing up which has lead to her not trusting easily and wanting to just be loved, but it always seams to be out of her reach. I enjoyed her strong and feisty personality as well her character development and growth throughout the book.

Chase (fan myself) is a very sexy man with a sad past that will make anyone cry. He try’s to be a loner running his wilderness inn, but all his friends won’t let him. He works as a part time deputy which ends up getting him into an interesting situation. When Shannon and Chase meet for the first time it’s not in a normal way, no that would be to easy. (If you want to know what happens you’ll just have to read and find out.) Oh course all his friends keep bring up how a feisty she-cat got the better of him.

I really loved the Cougar run town of Yuma. We usually don’t see a lot of cat shifter run towns. I found this to be refreshing.  It was also sweet to see how they helped each other out and how very open and welcoming they where to Shannon. The chemistry between Shannon and Chase is off the charts. It grows throughout the book and it’s not until half way through that they finally hit the sheets. I like a story with a great plot and time for the romance to come together; before we are off to the bedroom. I also loved all the secondary characters that are introduced in this book. I am looking forward to their stories and learning more about them. We get suspense, adventure, passion and so much more that Cougar’s Mate will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Forbidden Love in Audio Now!





Forbidden Love is now available on audiobook! Need a hunky vampire story? Where the huntress is supposed to terminate the hunter, but he's got to quickly change her mind? He's certain she's his lost love from the past. And she's not buying it. Except...she keeps envisioning them together in a distant past....as if she knows him like a lover would.  

http://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Forbidden-Love-Audiobook/B00JDQ9SSW/ref=a_search_c4_1_6_srTtl?qid=1396400430&sr=1-6

Did you know there's often a story behind every story? Or... at least most stories have some kind of... story.

I swear it was the fae. Now before you go telling me that I've got fae-itis and everything can't be due to the fae, just hear me out.

Forbidden Love was in the review process. Forever. For months. Every book that was narrated by this narrator passed with flying colors. But you know me. I'm writing or promoting or doing something that is keeping me busy, so I'd check on it, still in review, and forget about it.

Last week, I thought, I'm going to have to either take the fae to task, get my vampire in on the deal, or bite the bullet and contact the audio people.

I get an email the next day stating that the audiobook is... not listed on the review list.

Grinding back vampire teeth. And you thought I was a wolf, eh?

They'd get back with me.

Monday, get an email: It was reviewed already. Months ago.

Imagine... that.

This teaches me to check on things in a more timely manner. Will I? No.

But it teaches me to do so.

So he said they'd expedite it for sale, since it's been sitting in limbo for months. And today, just the next day, it's for sale.

And that's no April Fool's! Hey, are you like me and procrastinate on checking up on things and then find that unless you had, nothing would EVER have been done about it????

Have a super great Wednesday and Hump Day!

Terry
