Angel Fae is Out! Dawn of the Jaguar Coming Tuesday!

Hawk fae Ariana is a guard for the royal family, a highly coveted position, and one she has worked hard at, but on one trip to the human world to have fun in the sun with her friend, she makes the mistake of saving a couple of children from drowning in the Gulf of Mexico. Now she’s living in a new world with the Angel Corp in the angel realm of existence, and she’s required to save both humans and fae alike. Before she has gotten her feet wet on the easier assignments, she’s stuck with the really dangerous stuff. But she can’t die, can she? She has already done that once. But she wants to return to the fae world—the living fae world—in any way that she can.

Malik was supposed to have been Ariana’s guardian angel but when he saw another human struggling in the riptide, he went to save him, thinking that Ariana was going to be just fine. Now he is her mentor in the Angel Corp, when he’d always wanted to get to know her better while they’d both been of the fae world. This situation of her wanting to return as a fae is a deadly business. But if she manages to do so safely, she’ll leave him behind. Now she’s working on all dangerous missions and he’s afraid he’ll lose her for good. Still, helping her to return to the fae world of the living isn’t in the plans.

I’ve had so much fun writing about the fae so I’m glad to finally have this one ready for everyone who is following the mischievous fae in The World of Fae series. I also finished final print proofreading of Dawn of the Jaguar and so it’s ready for preorders. It’s coming out on Tuesday, November 30th!

Erin Chambers is leaving the FBI to join her father in his Big Cat Investigative Agency. She loved her job, but she wants to be closer to her father and have more freedom to run as a jaguar shifter when she can. But she knows dealing with her dad’s sole private investigator, Jason Biggerstaff, is going to take some work. He’s a hot jaguar and turns up the heat whenever he’s around her without any effort at all, to her consternation. But he’s not fond of the FBI, and she and he butt heads all the time. He’s been like a son to her father, so she knows he was thinking he could take over the business one day. That’s not happening.

Jason Biggerstaff is busy with investigations, not thrilled that Erin is joining the agency, but all that changes when they are embroiled in missing kids’ cases, their usual run-of-the-mill investigations, and she’s really good at her job. No matter how much he fights the attraction he has for her, it’s a losing battle. What starts out as just them handling their usual cases, turns into something worse—a snow leopard shifter in trouble and they must save him without landing themselves in a worse mess than they already are, which includes dealing with this growing need to take their relationship to something they never bargained for.

Jingle Bell Wolf is Out Today! Howoo!

Jingle Bell Wolf (Wolff Brothers Book 2) by [Terry Spear]

https://www.amazon.com/Jingle-Bell-Wolf-Wolff-Brothers-ebook/dp/B08T4JP6RCUSA

Today bestselling author Terry Spear brings you the wolf shifters you’ve been wishing of for Christmas in this action-packed paranormal holiday romance!

We are back to the Wolff Brothers of Silver Town!


It’s almost Christmas, and Florida gray wolf shifter and veterinarian Gabrielle Lowe has been talked into going with her friends to a ski resort in Silver Town, Colorado. But when her two jaguar girlfriends are held up on a mission, it not only leaves Gabrielle alone for the holidays, but also out of her element at the snowy resort. Determined to make the best of it, Gabrielle takes a dip in the lodge’s heated pool—after it’s closed, of course…

Gray wolf shifter Landon Wolff is part owner of the ski lodge and he’s got enough on his plate getting ready for the annual influx of Christmas visitors. The last thing he needs is a rebel, indulging in a midnight swim long after the pool is closed. Just as he’s about to throw the rule breaker out of the pool he realizes that Gabby is also a wolf. Suddenly, all the rules change… Maybe Landon will finally find the wolf he’s always wanted to share the holidays with.

Finished New Cover for Darkland Elf!

I was up at o-dark thirty again this morning. Too many irons in the fire, so trying to get a couple of them done so I can do the others. I finished uploading the updated version of Darkland Elf, just finished creating the print cover. It can take a few days for the uploads to show up, but, I’m thrilled that’s done.

Next on my list: A United Shifted Force, need to format it for the anthology, write blurb, etc.

I also am working on: Bear in Mind (needs another 50K), Angel Fae (needs another 30K), Dawn of the Jaguar (novella, needs another 17K), Bite of the Vampire (needs another 30K), Night of the Vampire (needs another 40K) , Warrior Elf (needs another 40K). All of these have covers, so I’m off the hook on that.

So if I look at it that way, I should finish up the jaguar novella. None of these are on deadline, and the thing of it is I need to write the book that is calling to me. So first I have to read what I’ve written and then if one of them is screaming, “I have another scene, write me!” I’ll start there.

If none of them do, I might pull out one of my finished books and get back to revising. They’ve never been published, but hopefully, they will one of these days. And that’s how I take my break!

Tomorrow we’re supposed to have cooler weather. I can’t wait!

Have a super fun day!!

Books and More Books

This is next up and coming out September 1st!

Well, I wrote 2500 words on United Shifter Force Christmas, yay! But then remember all those false starts? Well, I used one to add to the story and worked it in, and then I added another. I have another to add in today, so see? They weren’t a waste of time after all. They just needed to be told later in the story. So I ended up with 5,000 words yesterday. Yay! Minimum word count for a novella for me is 20K, but I normally get anywhere from 23-30K. Once I begin adding Christmas elements–right now it’s all about mystery, murder, and issues between them–it will begin to add up. Setting details usually come later for me. I just jump in with action and dialogue at first. So that means I have about 15K at minimum left to write. That sounds really doable. If I could just work and not have any interruptions (going to IKEA with my daughter today–we haven’t gone in 2 years and it’s kind of our special once a year fun thing to do), just think? If I could keep on with the story and write 5,000 a day (I know, pipe dream), but I could have it done by the end of the week, and then I could get started on the red wolf Christmas story which is due Oct 1.

Soooo, I’m thrilled to be getting somewhere with this!

And I bought another book cover that I need to do something with.

I. Have. An. Addiction.

Book cover buying. lol

My problem is I see one I really love and at a great price and I have to get it. The bad thing is I don’t have a story in mind. Why am I even looking for covers then? If I don’t look, I won’t be tempted. Exactly! And I haven’t looked in months. BUT, I have stories I’m writing that I DO need covers for. *sigh* I have a couple I won’t mind replacing that are really generic also or don’t suit the story either.

But I can’t find any that I need. So I end up making my own. I’d be very happy to have a cover artist do them instead and just keep writing. I love making them, but still, I feel some artists way exceed my ability. Some don’t though! And they still charge a lot. When I’ve had custom covers made, I haven’t liked the models, so I would just rather see the models in a premade cover and if the other elements work, buy it.

The real problem is that many of the artists’ work that I love are doing high epic fantasy. Women in fantasy outfits–urban fantasy–not like anything real people wear, or long flowing gowns, then if they feature shifter animals, they have glowing eyes. Glowing eyes? What’s up with that? Or the women are carrying swords (which is okay for my vampire series), but then they cover them with magical glowing light, or shooting magic out of their fingertips. I need normal, but paranormal. My shifters blend in with the world. Their wild halves are just like the ones in the wild–the cougars, jaguars, bears, and wolves. Their human halves blend in too, everyday wear, just like the rest of us.

My fae can wear whatever they want and have magic and such, but that is a YA series, and most of the women look like sexpots, and not teens. Which is fine for adult romance but…

I have had more success with finding some great covers for the YA series. I have a couple of covers I’d like to replace that I had done too, which was another reason I was looking, but of course I couldn’t find anything that would work.

Okay, I’m off to write before I have to leave with my daughter to have fun!

Have a super, non-addictive day, unless it’s just for fun.

Birdhouses

Created Birdhouses for another Challenge–the one in the center is my own photo of a birdhouse I own.

I’m up to chapter 16 on You Had Me at Cougar. I had to make a lot of changes throughout because the story changes as I develop it. Five more chapters to go!

We’re going swimming this morning, daughter and baby and me. I usually swim for an hour before my daughter gets there and then she comes and I watch the baby while I write and she swims. Perfect for both of us. As long as we don’t have any storms. They’re supposed to be coming. But they’re always supposed to be coming.

Hope you have a lovely day. I’m nearly done with You Had Me at Cougar! Woohoo, then on to the next deadline book.

The Wolf Wore Plaid is Out!

April 27, 2021

An overprotective wolf meets his match in the Scottish Highlands of today…

Heather MacNeil has never backed down from a fight. So when some shady shifters from a neighboring enemy clan come looking for trouble, she refuses to feed their satisfaction. There’s only one wolf that makes her go soft…

For packmate Enrick MacQuarrie, the work as second-in-command never ends—as the feud ignites, clan security is more vital than ever. But a certain unpredictable, feisty Highland lass is determined to stand up to the aggressors, and Enrick is equally determined to protect her.

The action builds as Heather and Enrick grow closer, but will they be willing to sacrifice their wild friendship for true love?

Praise for the Highland Wolf series:
“Will leave readers longing for a Highlander of their own.”—Romance Junkies
“The chemistry is so sizzling it’s a wonder the pages didn’t start smoking.”—Paranormal Kiss
“Plenty of action and intrigue to keep the pages turning.”—That’s What I’m Talking About

I’ve been wanting to write the next book in the Highland series forever, and had a blast doing it!

Heather MacNeill has been an important character in nearly all of the previous Highland wolf books with the MacNeill clan, cousin to Ian MacNeill the pack leader of his clan, and I finally found her match. Enrick MacQuarrie is the pack leader, Grant MacQuarrie’s brother and he finally has his story. I love being able to go back to a wolf pack and bring them to life again! And we’re back into movie magic, but in a whole different way!

Next year, I’ll have another Billionaire wolf–Derek Spencer and Kate’s story, Red Wolf, Maverick’s story, and White Wolf–David Davis and Elizabeth’s story out. So I probably will write the other Highland brother’s story in 2022 for 2023 release. I’ll also have two cougar novels out this year–one September 1st–Saving the White Cougar (Halloween), and one in the summer sometime (You Had Me at Cougar). So lots more fun reading coming up!! I do want to finish Angel Fae and write a polar bear story, but I’m still working on Billionaire, need to write the United Shifter Force Christmas novella for an anthology, and the red wolf Christmas story this year also.

And my daughter just gave birth to a new baby boy, so…I’ve been helping with him and taking pictures, and helping with my 4-year-old granddaughter who adores her baby brother–so far. lol

I’m back to writing on Billionaire this morning, so enjoy the new release and there are more to come!

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!
