Pink and Purple Stormy Clouds and Jaguars!




The skies have really been spectacular lately–beautiful storm clouds, yet, they’re not really producing storms, just an art pallet of color.



Uh, huh. It’s thundering out now. I was out taking pictures of the thunderheads, all blue and white, this morning.

But now it’s back to the book. Waiting on Cougar Undercover notes from one beta reader, and I’ll finish that up. Sent in Night of the Wolf and Flight of the White Wolf.  Still working on Falcon Fae. Okay, so here’s the thing. I’m trying to figure out the end of Falcon Fae and the beginning  of Billionaire Wolf Christmas.

 I keep getting scenes for Falcon Fae, so I’m hoping I can finish that up soon. And I still have 2 blogs to write for SEAL Wolf Undercover’s release in August.

Wolves and Jaguars in one. What could be better?

Oh, I had to do some research on closing a bank account, and I checked online, but I couldn’t find what I was looking for,  so I called my bank.

“What is this for?” he kept asking me.

I told him I could acknowledge him in the book.

“No, thanks, that’s all right. What is your name again?”

I’m sure he had fun telling about that crazy woman who called him about closing a bank account. Forms of ID, how much could you take out? Yes, really, it’s in the story.  Heart of the Wolf’s re-release in January. Night of the Wolf, the new novella in the story.

It’s fiction. She’s a wolf shifter. It’s fantasy. *sigh* No one believes they really exist. But we know better, don’t we!

Off to work! Have a spectacular day!

Family Is Everything

Every June, my family hosts a big reunion in upstate New York. Relatives come from all ends of the country: California, Florida, Maine, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. It’s a chance for us to reconnect, catch up on the latest family news, and just spend important time bonding with one another. And this year, we even had special guests from Buenos Aires, Argentina!

There’s a story here…

Readers of this blog will remember that in February 2016, Jenna Ives and I took a girl road trip to South America. Jenna wanted to learn to tango and to see the Rolling Stones (her favorite group) perform there, and I wanted to meet some relatives in South America that my cousin in New York had found on Facebook. (You see, we recently discovered that my great-grandfather re-married after his first wife died, and I had this whole other step-branch of the family who had settled in Buenos Aires that we never knew about.)

So I contacted them.

My gracious great-uncle Ben in Buenos Aires put together a big party so I could meet about two dozen aunts, uncles and cousins. It was very emotional and sweet to be embraced by these people who had never even seen me before (and probably hadn’t known about me, either). They welcomed me with open arms, like, well, one of the family J

So I invited them to come to the New York family reunion. I know it’s a long trip (5500 miles and about 11 hours in the air) but Uncle Ben and his daughter decided to come!

The reunion happened earlier this month, and I’m happy to report it was just as emotional for Uncle Ben as it had been for me. He got to meet his nephew (my dad) and his two nieces (my aunts) in person for the first (and possibly only) time. We threw a party for him with 38 relatives, and let him know about more relatives in New Jersey, with whom he is visiting right now.

They say you can pick your friends but you can’t pick your family. I am very lucky to have a wonderful, loving, supportive family which happily seems to be growing every year!

In September, my hubby and I will be visiting more of this branch of the family in Italy. And who knows? Jenna Ives may come along, too, because I understand the Rolling Stones are playing a show in Lucca, Italy. (Sheesh, she’s so easy!)

Family is everything. Go hug your relatives.

Until next month,

Leigh




Mermaids and the Alligator



I took the photo of the alligator, and his reflection at the Cameron Park Zoo. But what if there had been mermaids in there?

What ifs are the stuff of imagination.

Have a great "what if" day.

I'm a 2017 Passionate Ink "Passionate Plume" contest finalist!

I'm thrilled to announce that my sci-fi romance In The Court Of Love And Loss is a 2017 Passionate Ink "Passionate Plume" contest finalist!



The winner will be announced at the RWA Conference in Orlando in July.

Blurb: 
Kyrie is the Mistress of Justice on Sirene, able to judge a person’s guilt or innocence with a mere touch. She is invaluable to the planet’s dictatorial leader, Galen, but Kyrie is dying. Abandoned as a child by her people, the Ouri, when they mysteriously fled Sirene, she’s grown up among the planet’s “other” race. Now, at age twenty-five, she must find an Ourian to mate with or die.

Proteus is sent back to Sirene to rescue a child accidentally left behind when he and all the Ouri fled the threat of uprising. But through a trick of time, what he finds instead on his return is an Ourian woman he is forbidden by law to mate with, even if it means saving her life. And when Galen forces Proteus to sexually service Kyrie, Proteus uses every trick at his disposal to keep her alive, all while plotting their escape.

Galen and Proteus are desperate to save Kyrie for very different reasons--but they both know the fate of the planet depends on her survival.



If this book sounds interesting to you, it is currently "on sale" at the LooseId website at: http://www.loose-id.com/in-the-court-of-love-and-loss.html?___SID=U  

Writing is hard work and it is often a lonely, solitary pursuit, so when recognition like this comes along, it makes an author's effort seem worthwhile. (Of course, good sales help justify our work, too, LOL.)

I would love to hear what you think of In The Court Of Love And Loss if you've read it!

Best,
Jenna

First Nature Hike for Granddaughter




Took baby on first nature hike. We found the creek where they canoe, a nature center, and I was working on capturing butterflies in a shot. Can you count how many are in the picture with the coral flowers?


Finished proofing Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas and turned it in. The Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf is off to my 2nd beta reader and then must reread. And I wanted to finish up Cougar Undercover by the end of the month, so hopefully I can. I have 5,000 words to go.
Okay, that’s it for now! Have a lovely day. It’s hot and humid here already and instead of writing, guess what I'm doing? Photographing birds!
