Happy New Year's Eve!

From my Wilde & Woolly Bears house to yours, Happy New Year's Eve!

It's been a great year for writing and publishing what with Heart of the Wolf making Publishers Weekly's "BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR" and the beautiful cover for Destiny of the Wolf, (formerly Don't Cry Wolf) coming out Mar 1, 2009. The Bite of the Wolf replaces the title Betrayal of the Wolf, and that and another, titled for now, Allure of the Wolf, will both be coming out in the Fall of 2009.

I'm currently working on Plight of the Wolf and Night of the Wolf, and a fan has already listed both on their Listmania at Amazon picked up from a blog I must have done--which means someone actually reads some of my blogs!!! So that was really nice. :) Even though I know the titles will change. I've got to have a working title to work with or nothing will form on the page! :)

The bad news is that my mother has been very ill and I had to sell my home and move in with her. She's now got it's one day at a time.
Because of it, our New Years will be pretty quiet, movies, pink champagne (the really good cheap kind), if she can have some, and baked doritos topped with melted sharp cheese and green olive halfs--something we've been serving as a family treat since the days when the old Star Trek series was on television and we'd have that as our weekly standby in good old Florida.

As our treat to our reading fans, we are starting a new serial story--Cruising for Love, and I will be posting the first of the series on January 2. After that, the Casablanca authors will add to it daily, with a couple of cliff hanger breaks!! While we hear from our important sponsors.... :)
Last year the Casa Babes wrote The Bachelor Auction which was a lot of fun and we hope our readers enjoyed reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it!
In the meantime, everyone have a safe and happy New Years Eve. I have to work, but hope to be home before all the serious partyiers are out!
Happy New Year's Eve and all my best to everyone for a wonderful new year!

  1. Terry, I'm sorry to hear about your mom, but how wonderful you can help out!

    Wishing you a wonderful new year - with lots of extra hours in the days for all the writing! LOL

  2. Thanks so much, Judi! I'm hoping she's going to be all right. She has to see a blood specialist in a couple of weeks. One setback after another.

    Hmm, I'm going to have to cut back on goofing off. As if...!!! LOL :)

  3. Happy New Year Terry. Hope your mother feels better in the new year.

  4. Hi Terry--I would like to echo Judi and Marie's sentiments for your mom as well!

    2009 is going to be a great year for everyone, I just know it! And what a great way to start it off, bringing a fun new story to your readers.

  5. Looking forward to starting off the new year with another great story! I hope Danielle is right and this turns out to be a great year for all of us, including your mom!
    Best wishes to all for a safe, happy, healthy, and successful new year!

  6. Happy New Year to all my wonderful new CasaSisters! It has indeed been a marvelous year and I know each one of us can anticipate great things for 2009!

    Terry, it always breaks my heart to hear about your mom's woes. Nothing worse than watching those closest to us suffer - and I know what I am talking about. However, situations such as this remind us that even within the difficult there can be many blessings. Praise that your mom has persevered, displaying her strength and determination, and been able to share in your accomplishments. And major kudos to you for diligently fulfilling your dreams amid the chaos! Bravo!

    Now, bring on the Casa story! I am excited!!

  7. Terry, I'm sending good thoughts, prayers and everything else I can come up with to you and your mom in the hopes of a quick recovery and a healthy and happy New Year.

    Even though I'm on deadline and not able to help out with the story, I'm looking forward to reading it! All my favorite authors are going to write it.

    Hugs and a Happy New Year to all~

    Robin :)
