2. The World of Fae by Terry Spear



I thought this was a fun way to show a little branding and have some fun with it. It's free at imikimi.com and this one shows just where I'm at--floating in the clouds as usual while the wolf is fully grounded!

Could be that the wolf is part of my pack and he's thinking about me. You never know. 

Someone said I was having too much fun now that I am writing full time. You better believe it! I'm writing, of course. 3-4,000 words per day with the fast approaching deadline of Jaguar Fever, and then A SEAL Wolf Christmas after that. But getting creative is what it's all about when writing and promoting.

imikimi - sharing creativity




I write in a fae world. Or...about a fae world, but here, if you just use your imagination a tiny bit, this is how the fae see me!

I had no idea the fae has an eye on me. Maybe wondering if I really do know something about them?
That can be dangerous, you see. The fae are tricksters visiting our world to amuse themselves at the expense of humans. So anyone who can see the fae are a danger to them.

That's how it all begins. Making up stories, that is. We have to feel them. Be the characters. Share their experiences. The more conflict they have, the more conflict we have. We don't just send our characters out into the big, bad world and let them take care of it all on their own. Not when we made up that big, bad world in the beginning.

It's just not fair. So WE have to experience all the joys and the downers, all the good stuff and the bad.Too.

Whatever you endeavor to do, make it fun. Life is too short not to!

9. I Made It!


Woohoo, another week at the First Line Contest and!!!

I made it.


Along with one of my critique partners. Now if only...


Three weeks to go!!! Only 20 of us left. Five will be finalists. Three weeks to go! Last year I had been cut at this point. I had 4 weeks to go, and then that was it. So I made it another week, and I feel I've gotten beyond the wall. It would be a shame if I was cut this week and had a new wall erected, don't you think???


So, here's to perseverance! To making every line count! To hoping the judges agree! :)

I'm teaching the Conflict! Conflict! Conflict! online workshop for 4 weeks in Mar starting Mar 2, if anyone is interested!
http://www.terryspear.com/id15.html


And I'll be at Shreveport's Nola Stars Conference, "Written in the Stars" Mar 6-7 where I'll be giving my Happy Hookers workshop and signing books. http://www.nolastars.com/node/81

Off to choose another line. I feel like I'm on Survivor, only I don't have to eat the yucky stuff! :)

10. Featured Author on Red Room & New Review of Deidre's Secret!


Featured author for review of Deidre's Secret on Red Room!

http://www.redroom.com/



Review:
Title: Deidre's Secret
Author: Terry Lee Wilde
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
YA Climbing Rosebud Rating: Sweet
ISBN: 1-60154-414-6

Blurb:
When Deidre Roux has premonitions of danger, watch out! Faced with thwarting bank robbers and protecting others from the high school bully, she must reveal her secret to her new friend, Mark Cummings. Can she convince him that she truly sees a world of imminent danger headed their way before it's too late? Not only must Mark deal with Deidre's premonitions, which he has a hard time believing, but his convicted uncle has returned home. Humor, suspense, and conflict rule the day as Deidre's crazy aunt tries to do a true crime story on Mark's uncle. Deidre attempts to keep her aunt out of it before she gets mixed up in the much darker business of robberies and murder—her own, if she's not careful.

Review:
I enjoyed the book very much, It has a "Nancy Drew" feel that was a very welcoming. I have seen few books written in that style and enjoy them even today. It is a great read for your junior high and early high school students and has a mystery about it that keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. I loved the flow. As a matter of fact, I never got lost on who was who, or what happened.
Deidre Roux has a gift of seeing into the future and her twin, Charlie, does not, but supports her through her visions. Her boyfriend, Mark Cummings, is very understanding also. Although, I'm not sure he understands how much these visions bother her. Very good story for the teens and I enjoyed it very much. I think this is a very promising book.

Deidre's Secret



Excerpt from Deidre's Secret:


When Deidre woke that morning, she knew there was going to be trouble. She was sure it had to do with turning sixteen the week before. In a split second, her whole world had changed. Now, the visions she saw weren’t just about rescuing newspapers before the automatic sprinklers turned on, or saving a kitten from a tree. Now the scenario turned deadly.She realized it when the tingling sensation began in her forehead and a snapshot formed in her mind. Just a brief image of a blurred profile of a teacher choking on a chunk of hot dog. She had to rescue her and there would go her chances of ever having a boy ask her to the Valentine’s Dance.But something else plagued the recesses of her mind. Something that forced a chill down her spine. An uncontrollable fear that her visions had warned her before and she failed to save someone like, shook her to the core.

REVIEWS!!!From Long and Short Romance Reviews:Deidre's premonitions are her gift, as well as her secret; because just how uncool is it to have visions? In Deidre's Secret, our heroine's second sight becomes entirely plausible because it is oh-so annoying!When sixteen-year-old Deidre has a vision that is hard to interpret and she ends up blasting blatantly through the teacher's lounge for reasons she cannot rationally explain, we begin to sympathize. And, since she always has the best of intentions, her problems make her an entirely likable character.She has some typical teen issues; she hardly even dares dream of a date what with her 'second site;' guys are not interested in girl's as weird as she. She does have a pretty understanding brother, Charlie, and a couple good friends besides, and tries to put the whole dating idea out of mind.


That is, until drop dead gorgeous Mark Cummings, the new guy, sits right next to her.She'd like to be a normal teenager, getting the chance to drive a car, daydreaming in history, and although she makes light of her situation, readers will find they are rooting for her from the first.
She has ordinary teen frustrations (like wishing her brother would date who she wants). Then her vision of a dark and stormy night becomes not an unkind memory, but her darkest predication yet; Deidre senses a more personal danger. This ushers in real chills. Her usual second sight gives way to a real nightmare vision that turns into...but that would be telling!Most of the dialog is zippy and offers insight into characters. Deidre is a strong, funny, and interesting character, and some secondary characters are also super. Auntie Mae - from red hair to orange lipstick, absolutely leaps from these pages. The level of action slides from fast-paced to more reflective, and back. The ho-hum of school contrasts nicely with the moments of sheer terror.Overall, Deidre's Secret is funny, original and steadily builds intrigue throughout. It certainly engenders a bit of sympathy for those who might not quite fit in.This is a powerful and engaging story and has more than enough to interest an adult reader, as well as young adults.~~Snapdragon

12. Deidre's Secret--Fallen Angel Reviews!


Deidre's Secret by Terry Lee Wilde


Teenager Deidre Roux has premonitions of danger and is haunted by nightmares that she won't help someone in time and that they will die and it will all be her fault. Deidre also struggles to keep her abilities a secret from everyone and that is hard to do when she goes rushing out of class to keep a teacher from choking or to stop a bully from picking on another target. When Deidre's next vision seems to be about her latest crush Mark Cumming's uncle, she will need his help and must convince him she is for real. Mark likes Deidre but he is having a hard time dealing with her "visions" and her insistence on putting herself in harms way to help other people. If Mark doesn't help Deidre, she is going to try to protect people anyway but she'll be alone, what's a guy to do?


This is a very cute and fun teen paranormal romance. Deidre is a wonderful mixed up teen with an ability that enables her to help people. Mark is the new kid in town and has his own personal family issues going on besides trying to find his place in the new school. I liked that Mark, even when he isn't sure he believes Deidre, isn't willing to let her go alone to try to stop the crime she sees in her vision especially when it involves his uncle. Deidre seems to forget personal safety when she is on a mission to save someone and she needs someone like Mark to watch her back. The mystery that Deidre and Mark stumble across and next try to prevent is dangerous and important to people they care about so they aren't about to back off, but they will need to be very careful. Of course this book also has some of the usual teen issues of who likes who, and who will ask who to the next dance, but it goes along with the development of the relationship between Deidre and Mark and fits with the story. If you want a fun, cute, entertaining yet suspenseful, teen paranormal romance, you will enjoy Deidre's Secret!Reviewed by: Stephanie B. of Fallen Angel Reviews

14. The Trouble with Demons--New YA Book

Coming soon to Kindle, but available now at B & N :

Like with my wolf series, I wanted to show a world where some demons were the good guys, fighting evil to ensure the human population would survive. Instead of focusing on adults, though, I wrote about teens and their struggle to make a difference in their world. But Alana Fainot isn't just a lesser half demon pitted against the stronger demons slipping into the world. She's also a witch, if she can just learn some spells in time to help her newly found demon friends. But it has adult themes.

The Trouble with Demons

Ebook By Terry Spear
$2.99 Published: Mar. 10, 2011
Category: Fiction » Young adult or teen » Romance
Words: 65352 (approximate)





Witches and warlocks hide their true identities from the rest of the human population, while three teens with demon heritage living with human families, become unlikely companions in a race against time to deal with a demon threat to humankind in their own quirky way.

Alana Fainot, a witch and half Kubiteron demon, witnesses a Matusa murder his summoner, and she knows he’ll target her next. Raised by her mother, she has no idea who her demon father is. But when she’s pulled to a demon portal, she meets Hunter Ross, half Matusa, half human, who returns demons to their world, but who’s been poisoned by a Matusa and is more dead than alive. His human mother gave him up for adoption, and he doesn’t know

15. The Winged Fae is Coming Next!



Link
Because of popular demand, I'm working on The Winged Fae, sequel to The Dark Fae. Oftentimes, I get a lot of fan requests for certain characters, which prompt me to write a sequel about those characters. But this time, the sales are just so phenomenal for The Dark Fae, I'm inspired to write another story in the fae kingdoms.

We're back to South Padre Island in the opening...and one mischievous fae...

What fae would ever be bold enough to enter another fae-claimed territory (although humans think they own it), and believe she would not have to face the consequences of her actions?

An assassin royal winged fae of the Mabara Fae kingdom.

With a message.

***
I've written sequels to books and then not sold the original, so I stopped writing sequels! What about you? Do you like to read series where you can't wait for the next book to come out even if it takes a couple of years, or do you like to read stand-alone titles?

Actually, even though this is another story in the fae series, it's a stand alone title. I like to be able to read books out of order myself, so I try to write my stories that way also. :)

Off to work on The Winged Fae!
