Fall, Starlight Wolves, and Other Ramblings

We're almost a week into autumn (fall), at least according to the calendar. Here in Texas the trees are still green and we have day temperatures in the 90s. The good's finally raining. The rainy skies are making me think of fall. So ready for the cooler weather.

I've said it before, but fall and winter are my favorite times of the year...October through mid-February here in Texas.

And next week is October!
For the last few weeks, I've already been burning fall scented candles. I managed to catch them on sale and had the extra money to buy a few. It was a splurge, and probably something I shouldn't have done, but I did.

I want to get a fall wreath for the door, but I have found one that I like enough to buy. Maybe next weekend, I can go to one of the dollar stores and get creative. I've got Halloween lanterns to put out, but I need something else to go on porch table with them. Goal: $20 or less for the wreath and table decor. I'll keep you updated and post pictures on instagram.

Alpha Wolf is out of KU. I printed and spiral bound a copy of the draft. I'm going to read through it again for a couple of reasons.
First, I want to take some notes about the characters because I have a fourth book to outline for the series.
Second, I caught a couple of typos I want to fix before I release the book wide with Nook, KOBO, and Apple Books.
Third, I want to make sure this story flows into the second story. I wrote the outlines for books 1-3 back-to-back, but things sometimes deviate from the outlines.
And fourth, I've finished a draft of Bad Wolf (Mason and Carrie's story, book 2). Edits will start soon.  I'm not planning to release it in KU, but to go wide. I'm also looking into doing preorders.

Either today or tomorrow, I'm going to start writing the third book (Cooper's story), and sometime next week I'll start working on the outline for book 4 (Moose's story). Yes, he will find his mate, but keeping her safe will be a problem.

I'm planning to release the stories throughout the holidays and the new year. I will post release dates soon.
