Cooler Weather, Holidays, Bad Wolf, Stories and Other Ramblings

November is here and the weather is starting to get cooler. A cold front came through, and yesterday's highs were in the 40s. Today, the highs should get up into the 60s. Basically, we're on the weather roller coaster. It's cold for a day or two, and then the temperature rises up until the next cold front. Within days, I go from wearing sweaters and jeans to wearing t-shirts and shorts. Gotta love Texas weather. It's warmed up enough, that we opened the windows throughout the duplex. It's nice being able to air out the place, and the cats are having fun sitting in the windows, especially in the sunshine.

I never did find a fall wreath that I like or that didn't coast a ridiculous amount (in other words, way over my budget). Now, all the Christmas stuff is out in the stores. Thanksgiving isn't even here yet (in the USA).

I'm taking a few days off at Thanksgiving. I'll spend sometime with family. I'm cooking a simple Thanksgiving meal this year. Instead of a turkey, I'm making a chicken breast and gravy dish in the crock pot. It's simple but tasty. I've actually made a smaller version several times and it doesn't last. I'm also going to make a cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, a green bean casserole, and rolls. Not sure about the desserts yet.

Bad Wolf can be pre-ordered from Amazon, KOBO,  Barnes and Noble, and Apple Books. It will go live on December 13, 2019.

Alpha Wolf is now for sale at Amazon, KOBO, Barnes and Noble, and Apple Books.

I'm working on book 3 which is Cooper's story. It will be released sometime in January 2020. I'm also plotting/outlining Moose's story (book 4). As of now, it is the last book I have planned for this series.

After I finish Moose's story, I'm going to take about a month to outline the rest of the stories for Brimstone Heat. Phoenix, Onyx, and Diablo will finally get their stories told.  I'm also going to complete the outline for the Undead series, and make a decision if there will be other books in that series or not.

I've procrastinated writing these stories. The biggest reason was there was no inspiration. I worked on outlines, only to find them flat when I read through them. I've printed out Lucifer and Reluctantly Undead and had them spiral bound. These are going to be part of my holiday reading. As I read, I'm going to make revisions and notes for the next books in the series. Both series have been left hanging for too long. I will remedy this problem in 2020, and hopefully I'll have a couple of new stories to throw in the mix too.
