I love purple flowers and here are some growing next to the oats in the field.
It's Monday and that means I'm at Star Crossed Lovers today! So that's one good thing about a Monday!! I'll be giving away another copy of A Howl for a Highlander!
I'm also still working on Jaguar Hunt. 74,500 and counting!
I'm listening to the audiobook for Highland Rake. Love the narrator's accent for the Highlanders. My slow Internet is causing me trouble as it takes about 45 minutes to download a chapter at a time, and that's with NOTHING else running at the same time. So driving me crazy. :) Once I approve the chapters, then it has to be approved by ACX and that takes another month or so, and then it's ready for sale. So excited about that.
Highland Rake, Book 3 Coming November 2012 Dougald MacNeill takes Lady Alana Cameron to his laird brother James's Craigly Castle when he finds her roaming the heather on the MacNeill lands. But who has sent her there and why? Her uncle, laird of the Cameron clan, and warring with the MacNeill for years, has made a marriage arrangement with another clan and now that is even at stake. Having witnessed her father's death, and even believing he had returned her home when all along he had been dead, Alana discovers she has the gift, or curse, of seeing the newly departed and sometimes those who should have long ago passed over. Her own deceased brother continues to plague her, the rake, and now another, who is very much of the flesh, Dougald MacNeill, has her thinking marrying a rake might just have its benefits. Dougald's sister, who is one fiesty ghost, has offered to help Alana keep Dougald in line if he thinks of even straying. But who sent Alana on a fool's errand in the first place to remove her from the Cameron's lands and set her squarely in Dougald's care, and who really killed her father and her brother, and what has it all to do with Alana? Will she and Dougald learn the truth before it is too late? Kobo
I just finished two more guest blogs and have two interviews I still don't have the questions to.
And I think that's all I'm doing!!!
Next up on the newsletter is Eye of the Panther, a futuristic world that isn't anything like the shifters I write today. This one was for a contest submission about 10 years ago about a coffee shop bookstore combo and the future of books. This was before ereaders. Maybe I wrote it even longer ago. Can't remember. But when I wrote it, I imagined a world without books and yet this woman on another planet has a coffee shop and bookstore. After submitting the short story, I received a curt response that it was by invitation only. So why did the person advertise it all over the Internet without the caveat that it was by invitation only?
I had fallen in love with the characters and so I kept writing on it until it was a full length novel about a world in danger and a fighter pilot from another planet who could save them from the conquest of another off-worlder species. She is a panther shifter, and her brother is a dragon shifter. What can I say? It's a futuristic story and on other planets, their worlds are different. But it was my first shifter story that I wrote. :) So it needs a lot of work. I will be publishing it in the future.
I also have a recorder and recorded the storm that we had the other day--heavy rains, thunder, birds chirping. So if I can figure out how to share it, I will. :)
That's it! Have a super Monday!!!
