Sherbert Bear and Amethyst Bear Ready to Trick-or-Treat!
Note the wolf howling? Yes, he’s letting everyone know to come to the party! So yesterday, I made up Sherbert Bear and Feather Bear and worked on more steampunk bear hats. I’ve also been working on some other bears. I have orders for 3 rainbow and 2 sherberts now, so going to finish those up next.

My Banner for Signings!
My Banner for Signings!

Don’t you love it? I need to get it made up so I can have it at my book signings.  Linda Boulanger of Telltale Designs made the cover and she does a beautiful job.  The last three conferences I went to, nearly all the authors had some fancy big banner behind them. The ones I fell in love with had something like this. Not a ton of book covers, which for me is a problem since I have like 50-60 books out, so that would be a mess to look at. Plus, I have so many different genres I write, she was trying to combine them and still make it look great–so wolves, cougars, a Highland castle, the moon, which always gives that paranormal feel, and they’re in between urban fantasy and historical, so I love it. And I love blue, so it works for me.  What do you think?

Next, I was having conversations with myself this morning, not out loud, but I’ve been brainstorming about how I need to finish up the book. Though I’m also working on an article for another site. I have another to do also. Less than 8,000 words to go on Call of the Cougar!

And that’s it!

And I have a question. Is this an OLD cardinal? I have two like this with graying feathers. And then I have a brilliant red one. Is this just different ones, or does this mean the two like this are older? Inquiring minds want to know.  I’ve only seen the bright red one before, so it might be that these other two just found my sunflower seeds. Or it could be that they are the older generation. I had two baby cardinals in a nest this spring, then again, the only cardinal I’d seen before this was the brilliant red on with his mate. And the two in the nest were brown, so I figured they were females. Hmmm, I probably should be thinking more about how to finish Call of the Cougar, but this has become curiouser and curiouser.

On Facebook, several thought they might be moulting! That's it! Looked it up, and that's what it is. So instead of one bright red male cardinal, I have 2 moulting and 1 that's still bright red. I would never have known I had three if it hadn't been that they were moulting! And came down to feed at the same time.

Off to finish my article and then I’m off to write on Call of the Cougar while I’m working on steampunk hats.

We are trying to make a list--USA Today Bestseller/NY Times Bestseller. Believe me, it isn't easy. You have to really work at it, like you do at anything else.

I spent all day either at the FB party or promoting, and today, we've started Excerpt Wars and we're talking to some other successful box set list authors to dual promote.

So IF we make a list, it wasn't by waving a magic wand.

I did manage to finish these bears to ship today, and I do have to run errands, have lunch out and see a movie with a friend because she's leaving.

Finished! A Silver Wolf Christmas! And Tomorrow: Tall, Dark and Paranormal Releases!

There’s nothing more fun than finishing a book! Then after I finished reading it and sending it off to beta readers, it was time to cut out more bear orders. Received 4 more yesterday. Somehow, I don’t think I’m getting ahead of the game!

Steampunk and Rainbow Bears in Process
Steampunk and Rainbow Bears in Process

It’s amazing what a few hours will do–turn fur into fun creations. The two on the left are finished, though I still have to embroider all their paws. But the bears and outfits are made. And here they are! The other 4 are ready with their vests in their laps and their hats in progress. Have to make new style dresses for them.  On the rainbow bears, the one is ready to be embroidered. The next needs a nose and he’s ready to be embroidered. The last needs a head, eyes, ears and a nose, and then he needs to be embroidered.

Steampunk Bear--Sold

Steampunk Bear with Tapestry Vest–Sold!
If I was only making bears, I’d have them all done by now. But my day job…and night, is writing. So I do the bears AFTER I get my writing done. Or…like yesterday while I was working on rereading A Silver Wolf Christmas for the last time, I was working on the two Steampunk bear hats at the same time. I usually don’t do that, but they’re not furry, so I could. Fur in the keyboard probably wouldn’t help my writing. :)
So next project to finish up? Call of the Cougar. If I can figure out the ending, I’ll have it made! :)
But in the meantime, I did cut out another 5 bears and they’re now in process. :) I still have more to cut out for orders. Waiting on fabric for two of them.
Okay, off to write. Oh, AND, TOMORROW is release day for TALL, DARK and Paranormal!

I read Regency. I love it! But I don’t write it. Which is why I read it. I also love Highland stories, but only because I never see them written in the time period I write in. I don’t read werewolf books. After I wrote my first cougar book, I read a short novella that was supposed to be a cougar shifter book, but guess what? No one shifted. How can you call a book a shifter book if no one shifts???

One of the things we do as an author is make a pack with the reader. If I say it’s a wolf shifter book, I’d better show you some shifting. Into wolves! If I say it’s a medieval Highland book, I’d better show you some Highlanders in medieval times. And if I say it’s a vampire book…well, you know the drill–sharp teeth, hot and sexy (yes, my vampires are hot and sexy, not cold and dead) ….

Hope you all have a lovely Monday. I opened my blinds to get my morning blue light–remember: blue light is good for you, for your psyche, and it’s pitch black out. Somehow I will have to survive another hour or so with no blue light, orange light, or any other kind of light! Oh, yeah, I can turn on the overhead light, but what’s the fun in that?


Have a super great Monday!!! Tuesday is the big day!

Another Steampunk Bear Creation!

cougars coming (640x427)
Many know I write wolf and jaguar shifters, but I wasn’t sure how well cougars would be received. Like with the exotic big cats, jaguars, and the wolves, with cougars, I do a ton of research to make the big cat shifters as realistic as possible based on their other animal half. I've been asked if I would write bear shifters. Anyone game? It would be much later, as I have so many have-to books to write.

Cougar’s Mate has been well loved and so Call of the Cougar will be out by December. Earlier, if I can manage. I’m trying to finish up A Silver Wolf Christmas revisions today, then tomorrow start working on the end of Call of the Cougar. It’s nearly done! Just needs another 15,000 words and an ending. That helps, you know.


And, I have one of the new Steampunk Bears completed–this one with a suede vest. All the ones I’m making now are sold. :But this shows the faux leather hat I created for this bear also, and I’m making more of the same hat for the rest.

Steampunk Bear with Suede Vest

But after I complete orders, I’ll be making a new one that will be for sale.


Off to work on A Silver Wolf Christmas and then turn it over to the next phase of the process.
And only 2 more days and Tall, Dark and Paranormal will be in your hot little hands!

Tinsel Bear
I made this for a requested bear order for a small bear, now have one for a large bear, but was excited to learn a new “sewing” technique. Creating an eyelet-decorated vest for the Steampunk Bears. I have 7 orders for them, so have been working on the bears and the vests.  So I got the eyelets, and the eyelet clamp to add them and read the directions and was clueless. Tried a number of things, and finally gave up and looked it up on Youtube for a video demonstration. Within seconds, I had my first eyelet-decorated vest.


I do Google searches all the time to figure out how to do something that’s escaping me, so why not for something like that? And it worked! Love the Internet.

Anyway, there’s her eyelet-decorated vest. She still needs her hat and this bear is sold.  Working on 7 more. They’re all a little different from one another and when I have them finished, I’ll show them off.

In the meantime, I’m working hard to read through the rest of A Silver Wolf Christmas. I’m having trouble with saving. I save and go back and find that my edited work HASN’T saved. And I’m having to revise sections I know I changed. So not sure what’s up with that.

And I have another bear to make that is a really unusual fur. A customer behind me at the fabric store asked me what I was going to do with that??? And I said, “Make a bear.” I think it will be cute, but I never know for sure until I actually create the bear. So far, I have only had a couple of “ugly” bears by taking a risk. The fur was curly and the fabric too stretchy. So it wouldn’t hold it’s shape when stuffing. I say they were ugly, but they actually turned out cute, but I gave them away as freebies.


It turned COLD. 57 here today. And that’s COLD. But I’m loving it. Though this is not a shorts day. And it’s ONLY getting up to 78. Can you believe it? And we had rain last night! Love it!

It’s going to get back up to the 90’s, so glad to get some refreshing cool weather.

And that’s it! Have a lovely, cool day and I’m off to revise more of A Silver Wolf Christmas and hope my revisions stick!
