Night of the Wolf Coming March 30th!

Night of the Wolf (In the Heart of the Wolf 10th Anniversary Release–now a single release)

Serena Wilder learns all her money has been withdrawn from the bank by the man who has been sharing the rent with her. They’re both wolves. She trusted him. But when he takes off with all her savings, she vows revenge. But first, she returns to the old homestead where she’d lost her whole family due to a fire. In the basement, her father had kept a hidden safe. She hopes it’s still there so she can finance her trip to the Grand Cayman Islands where the thief has settled–using her money!

Tanner Greymere and his three brothers discover a red wolf skulking around their home and they realize just who she is and why she is there. But Tanner has no intention of her running off to fight a wolf on her own, so now the challenge is to locate him on the island, get her money back, and convince her she needs to stay with the pack–with him, but protect her at all costs. But nothing goes their way.

***

So I was working on Billionaire and finally had some ideas. I’d forgotten that one of the earlier heroines was pregnant, so needed to add something about that. And another couple has a boy, so I had to figure out how old he would be and add him to the story. And then the pregnant woman will add more conflict. So does the boy. He’s 4 years old, what can I say? He added lots in the original story where he was featured. Kids just do. But in a fun way.

Then I had another great idea about one of the dogs that the hero owns in this story. It’s actually based on a true story about my dad, and ironically, the dog’s name was Toby. My dad loved animals–horses, that his grandparents and his mother had, dogs–he never had cats–but when they took care of my cat when I had to go to some army training, he fell in love with her.

This all goes to show that when I’m stuck and don’t know where to go–I still need to keep writing and then suddenly I’ll have that ah-ha moment and there it is! 3500 more words! But so many times, I’m trying to come up with something and it’s not happening. I still write, but when I’m not trying to force something, then it comes to me. I just wish it would come to me more often while I’m writing. lol

I also cleaned the gutter out front. I wasn’t sure I could reach it with my 6 foot ladder. I couldn’t on the backside of the house. It was packed with pine needles. I need to get some of those gutter covers.

I also got rid of two yellow jacket nests being built at each end of the garage. I find that if I hose them down while they’re being built, soaked both yellow jackets, they won’t build there again. I can spray tons of hornet spray and they’ll return every time. But water? The greatest deterrent. The only reason I can think of is that they believe rain is going to wash away their nests, and so they don’t build there any longer. I have a couple places in the protective foyer where they would build and I had a devil of a time stopping them. So that does it!

I pulled weeds too. I thought of going to get groceries today, out of them, but when I went to post about Night of the Wolf, I realized my publisher doesn’t even have a synopsis up for it, so had to write that one. Still need to write the synopsis for SEAL Wolf to the Rescue.

I did manage to cut out 3 bears also, and I need to start sewing those up today. But I also want to get my 2,000 words today on Billionaire. I’m still playing my 4theword game to keep up with my writing! Which makes it even more fun.

The temperature dropped, but it looks like today is going to be the lowest temperature of any days and we’re supposed to have rain.

I’m off to work!

Have a beautiful day and stay safe!!

Charming Chimpanzee Photo Art

Usually, I get a lot of backsides of animals when I go to a zoo to take pictures. I still did when I went to the zoo, but I also got some remarkable photos when some of the primates came over and looked like they were posing just for me.

This big chimp came over to sit on a ribbon of canvas. They’re so well balanced. He just put his fist down to keep from tilting and then he finished his elegant pose.

Well, I spent most of the day, trying to get through the edits on White Wolf Moon last night. I managed to get through all the rest of the chapters. I need to write acknowledgements this morning and then the book is off. I worked on a 1,000 words of Billionaire first thing also, and sent a bunch of photos to my daughter, which took some time. And played with a couple of photos of my own.

I realized next week is spring break, so I will be able to concentrate on all the stuff I have to do without taking care of little one. Though I’m preparing a St. Patrick’s Day dinner on Wednesday for us. 🙂 So hoping to get some great word count on Billionaire and You Had Me at Cougar.

Taxes are next. That was the thing I was forgetting I have to do this weekend. I knew there was something else that was hanging over my head. I was just looking forward to writing new stories instead.  *sigh*

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I’ve got to get busy!

Primal Desire, Heart of the Huntress Series, Book 6 Released!

Primal Desire–out now!

Selena Townsend has no idea what will happen after she kills a fellow hunter while protecting an innocent vampiress. She’s ostracized, but acquitted of charges against her, but now she’s looking for her sister who has disappeared. That mission takes her to a vampire club and all kinds of trouble.

Atreides has been in charge of the vampire clans, while his brother is off on a honeymoon with his new mate. He doesn’t expect a huntress to walk into one of their vampire clubs, which is just not done, and then return later after being savagely attacked by a vampire. He has to take care of her before the League of Hunters learns of it, and then he wants to pawn her off on the hunters who can protect her pronto! But he finds he really doesn’t want to give her up after all.

War between the hunters and the vampires could break out any moment unless they find the rogue hunters who are killing innocent vampiresses and the vampire who had attacked Selena and other huntresses at the same time—and terminate the rogues.

I’ve always wanted to write Daemon’s brother’s story, Atreides. And he has as much of an ordeal when other nearly, almost, borderline rogue huntress comes on the scene as he takes over the clans while Daemon and Tezra are on a honeymoon far away. But Serena is not anything like Tezra–except that she’s a huntress and stirring up trouble.

Enjoy!! Terry

Morpho Butterfly Art & Fighting for Word Count

The morpho butterfly has big “eyed” wings to scare off predators, but when it spreads its wings, on top, it has the prettiest blue coloring. They’re very unafraid and one was riding on the back of my sweater, traveling with me throughout the butterfly exhibit.

Okay, using 4thewords, I managed another 5,000 words yesterday on the new novella. So I have 10K now, halfway done–for the minimum word count I shoot for. I usually write between 25K-30K on a novella. I’m hoping to get another 5,000 today and tomorrow. I ended up going to my daughter and SIL’s house yesterday because my granddaughter was missing me. We had pizza and she slept in my arms for 2 hours. She’s such a sweetie.

I was setting up my battle strategy last night for the quest I’m on for today, 700 words in 130 mins, though once I have a scene in mind, I’m done in maybe 20 mins? Not sure. I wrote 1,000 words to battle a different kind of monster yesterday, and I typed as fast as I could, and was done in about that much time.

Before I write, I have to think of where I’m going with the story. then once I have an idea, I click on the fight the monster and the timer is set, and I’m off and racing. I had been fighting one monster for 250 words at a time, which is easy, quick and after 4 times of battles, I have 1,000 words easy. I also was battling one that was only 100 words at a time. It’s great when I’m not sure of what to say and I can get the 100 words quickly, so something done on the mss anyway. It’s especially good if I have to keep running to do other things, battle a monster, let the dogs out, battle a monster, let the dogs in, battle a monster, check the cooking. lol I often just click on him 3 times in succession to fight him though, because I’m on a roll, so end up with 300 words.

One of the quests I want to do today is for 3,000 words. I don’t know how that one works, but if it’s just to get it done for the day, I can, because I’ve been doing 5,000 words a day. I did one where it’s endurance–type as fast as you can for 5 mins. That was awful! I kept at the top of the scale, in the green the whole time, and in 5 mins managed to write 278 words. So it was good as far as getting something done, but it means a lot of mistakes that I had to correct afterwards. However, it forces me to just get the story down and not worry about making the mistakes and it was good story material. Which is the main thing.

When I went to my kids’ house, I ended up bringing back mending projects. My daughter can sew, but since I make teddy bears, my granddaughter believes I’m the only one who can fix her toys or clothes. lol I have her help me, so she’s learning to thread needles and sew. By the time she’s 4, maybe she can really sew. Maybe I can teach her how to embroider, hook rugs, make pot holders. My daughter was never interested in needlework. No one in my family was, so I taught myself and loved it. Which is how I turned a fun hobby of embroidery work into making teddy bears with personalized paws!

Okay, I’ve got some monsters to battle! Have a great day!

Cougar Christmas Calamity is Out!

Cougar Christmas Calamity

Cougar shifter Jessie Whittington plans to work on her psychic romance book before Christmas at the Whispering Pines Resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior, but peace and quiet aren’t exactly what she’s going to get right before Christmas.

Former army ranger Emerson Merriweather has returned home after being ambushed on a Black Ops mission, and now learns his uncle has died. When he meets his only guest at the cabin resort, he’s surprised she’s a cougar too. Before long, a blizzard hits, bear shifters wreak havoc, and he’s helping Jessie decorate for Christmas. Something he never thought he would be doing.

Jessie’s definitely the light in his life but he still has to take care of the man who set him and his team up during the mission. He knows he will be looking for Emerson to finish the job. Mystery and intrigue are the name of the game and things aren’t always as they seem. https://read.amazon.com/kp/card?preview=inline&linkCode=kpd&ref_=k4w_oembed_fWd0RXypjwLAHo&asin=B08QNKNB7D&tag=kpembed-20

It’s finally up at all the sites!

Currently, I’m working on A Date with a Wolf–5,000 words done. It’s a novella that will come out in Silence of the Wolf’s 10th Anniversary, so I’m shooting for 20K and it will probably be around 25K+. I did use 4thewords to fight monsters to write 5,000 words yesterday. It helps me to stay focused for 250-400 words at a time and then go off and do other chores before I settle down to write another bunch of the story. I hope to continue the trend until my son arrives for Christmas on Saturday evening. I could possibly have this novella mostly written by then if I can keep up the writing. Little one is at home, so that’s helped.

I took this photo of an old Ford truck in Salado, Texas, an old stagecoach town. I added a new background, a texture layer over it, glowing headlights, and removed the tree that was all over the original truck.

I’m off to send my new release newsletter and then fight more monsters for word count. Have a great day!

It’s coming, yay! I had to run to the grocery store first thing, and I was weeding, now back to edits on Wolff Brothers 2. I’m on chapter 10, long ways to go. I need to add a couple of things and just looking for anything else I need to change before I turn it in.

I saw a BEAUTIFUL rainbow yesterday, nearly burned my grilled cheese sandwich when I saw it because food went out the window, and I was trying to capture the rainbow instead. We rarely see them here.

It has to be a good luck rainbow, with unicorns and such. Of course!

I’ll try and share it and some of the hummingbird pictures if any turned out later. I need to download them to my computer first.

Have a great day!
