Welcome to “Crafty Authors Coffee Time with Tamye”.  I’m super excited about our special guest today. She is the second Coastal Magic Convention 2017 “Featured Author” to join me for chit-chat, coffee, and crafts by the beach.

I met Terry Spear “in person” at the Coastal Magic Convention this past February, in Daytona Beach, but we had already met online back in June of 2014 when she joined my Books, Coffee, and Crafts Facebook group.  In fact, she’s one of our charter members.  From there we became friends, and not only did I discover that she writes wonderful books, but she makes the most adorable teddy bears.  I have one of her woody bears, and my daughter and granddaughter have a custom set that Terry worked hard to meet my somewhat challenging specifications. I knew she could do it.  And she did, magnificently. So when I was asked which of CMC2017’s featured authors I wanted to host on this segment, Terry’s was one of the first to come to mind.  

Since I don’t expect Terry for a few more minutes, let me tell you a bit about her.  

terry-spear-right1Terry Spear is a USA Today Bestselling author who writes urban fantasy and Highland medieval romance: hot wolves, jaguar shifters, medieval Highlanders and lots more. She also pens young adult paranormal romance. She has over fifty paranormal books to her name, earned Publisher’s Weekly Best Books of the Year, and has been featured in The International Wolf Magazine, Woman’s World and BGS Book Review Magazine. She creates award-winning teddy bears in the heart of Texas and gardens. She retired from USAR after rappelling, mountain climbing, learning water survival, qualifying with a number of firearms, survived the obstacle courses, leadership reaction courses and confidences courses – and knows if she can do it, her characters can overcome any obstacle she puts in their path.

Terry’s Mantra
“Giving new meaning to the term alpha male where fantasy is reality.”

Terry Spear is one of my go-to authors. I never pass up one of her books in the store. If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading her books, then you definately want to grab one soon. You won’t be disappointed.  

(Oh, look here comes Terry now, and she’s brought the boys.  Tanner and Max, two of the cutest little pooches I’ve seen.)  I love getting her blog posts, or checking out her facebook page, because chances are high that one or both will be featured in a picture or video.

With a hug for Terry, and a belly rub for the boys, we settle down to enjoy our drinks (lavender tea for Terry, and coffee with cream for me), a nice chat, and a few fun surprises for everyone.  So make sure you read till the end or you might miss something really fun.

 

ProfilePicThreeThanks for joining me and my readers today, Terry. I’m so thrilled you’ll be attending Coastal Magic as a “Featured Author” this coming February. I had a wonderful time last year. I was so nervous it being my first convention, but everyone was so nice and friendly. I couldn’t have picked a better event to test the waters. How many years have you attended?

TerrySpearProfile50x50This will be my third. I love it! Love the area and the hotel, the people, Jennifer. It’s just all great fun.

ProfilePicThreeWhat is one of your favorite things about Coastal Magic?

TerrySpearProfile50x50Location, location, location!

ProfilePicThreeIf you could put a word in the event coordinators ear, what would you ask she do, or do differently?

TerrySpearProfile50x50I wouldn’t. I love everything she does.

ProfilePicThreeWhat tip would you give to people new to a reader/author conference?  (Me, I would suggest they bring a tote bag or something to have everyone sign.  Besides the bag they get to put all their swag in.)

TerrySpearProfile50x50That’s a great idea! Dress comfortably! The year before last, it was nice weather. But this past year it was cold. So be prepared for the changing weather. Otherwise, just enjoy!  

What I love so much about this conference is that it’s primarily paranormal. Which is primarily what I write and I love connecting with readers and authors of the paranormal! 

ProfilePicThreeYou and me both, Terry. My favorite genre is paranormal. Although I also love Urban Fantasy, and romance in almost any sub-genre. As long as you give me a happy ending, and a well written book, I’m happy.

ProfilePicThreeNow that we’ve established that Coastal Magic is the place to be this coming February, can you tell everyone a little about the book you’ll be releasing next month, Terry?

TerrySpearProfile50x50I’d be happy to, Tamye. A Very Jaguar Christmas will release on October 4, 2016. But it’s available for pre-order now. It’s the fifth book in my Heart of the Jaguar series, and if you haven’t guessed by the title, it’s a Christmas book.

A Very Jaguar Christmas by Terry SpearA Very Jaguar Christmas
Book 5 of 5 in Heart of the Jaguar 

There are all kinds of surprises under the mistletoe!

As a protector of all jaguar-kind, Guardian agent Demetria MacFarlane isn’t surprised to get a call near Christmas-but when she’s sent to protect a cub whose species she didn’t even know existed, her holiday season gets complicated. And it doesn’t help that her partner is a distraction of the hottest kind.

Hotshot JAG agent Everett Anderson can handle dangerous poachers and wildlife traffickers, no problem…but kids? Everett fears he’ll be stuck cub-sitting under the Christmas tree, but working with one sexy Guardian she-cat may be the best present he’s ever gotten.

ProfilePicThreeThat sounds awesome, Terry. I can’t wait to read A Very Jaguar Christmas. But then again. I love all your books.  I was thrilled when I ran across Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing at the store. Then to find out you were sending me a copy of a recent interview with Rafe Denali.  I was in heaven.  Thanks!  You are my hero.

billionaireinwolfsclothingBillionaire in Wolf’s Clothing
July 5, 2016

First in a BRAND-NEW SERIES about filthy rich werewolves and the women who are more than their match.

Billionaire werewolf Rafe Denali always gets what he wants, and he always trusts his gut. When sexy she-wolf Jade Ashton nearly drowns outside his beach house, he knows better than to bring her into his life. But there’s something about the fierce wolf that triggers his most primal instincts…and having seen her, he knows she will be his.

Even if she’s hiding a dark secret that could get them killed…

An Interview with Billionaire Rafe Denali

Reporter: You probably are asked all kinds of questions about how you made your money, who you’re dating—

Rafe: I have a wife, Jade, so that’s no longer an issue.

Reporter: And that’s just why I had some other questions in mind. I’ve seen your son and he’s the spitting image of you. Because you are so rich, he can have anything he wants in the world. Is there one thing he prizes more than anything else?

Rafe: Family. As it is for all of us.

Reporter: Right, but he’s a kid. So what…well, does he take with him places, or sleep with?

Rafe: I’d have to say a blue rainbow teddy bear. He calls him Buddy. Because that’s what he is. His buddy. He also has a green and blue dinosaur named Dino, but Buddy has to go with him everywhere.

Reporter: All right then. So teddy bears and dinosaurs aren’t out of fashion yet. Getting back to you then, what was your favorite toy when you were growing up?

Rafe raised a brow.

Reporter: Aw, come now. Did you have a favorite blanket, stuffed toy, ball?

Rafe: We made do with nature’s playground. Camped, hiked, swam, fished. We didn’t have traditional toys.

Reporter: I see. You didn’t come from a wealthy background. You made the money all on your own. Which always intrigues people like me. Gives us hope that some of us can make it too. What do you think helped shape you from the time you were little to mold you into the man you are today, a member of the billionaire’s club?

Rafe: Did you ever have a dream of creating something bigger than yourself? Of crafting a better mousetrap? Of creating something original that would fill the needs of many? To love what you do because it brings joy to others?

Reporter: Okay, you’re getting into the heart and soul of the story. How you take crumbling businesses and turn them into parks and livable, workable space for people who would never be able to afford such a thing. I admire you for that. It must be your upbringing that brought you to that. Now, as to your wife, she crafts original creations also. Lingerie and specialty children’s clothes. As to the lingerie, does she model it for you before she tries to market it?

Rafe only gave him a wolfish smile back. He was done with the interview because he needed to approve some more of the silky creations that were all his lovely mate’s idea. Though he’d had his input a time or too.

Reporter: I’d say that answers all of my questions. And tell the little guy to give Buddy a hug for me. All little boys should have a teddy bear to love.

And a family too, Rafe knew.

Creating a Teddy Bear by Terry Spear

 

Creating a teddy bear, and any other craft, is a labor of love. I’ve been making these for over thirty years! They’ve been featured in magazines and newspapers and found homes all over the world!
blue-rainbow-bear-and-baby1-624x640

First, I cut out the fur. And then, I sew the parts on my machine.

cut-out-fur-sew-up-bear-800x533

Next, I find a good movie to watch, and take my bear parts into the living room to begin the stuffing process. Max and Tanner, my Havanese, also join me for every step of the process. In the sewing room, and now in the living room. It’s a family project you see.

max-and-tanner-by-the-stuffing-640x427

There are quite a few steps from stuffing arms and legs, and then attaching them with joints. Then working on the head–putting in eyes, stuffing, and attaching it to the body.

bears-in-process-360x640-2

You can see the bears for one order all laid out on my couch while I worked on them like an assembly line. Though I skip around sometimes. So you see the bears made and partially dressed in Steampunk costumes. The sherbet bears are partially completed, the one slumped over without his head yet.

steampunk-bears-for-dani-partly-made-583x287-001

I included another picture to show the finished hats for several Steampunk bears also, which is a major process from cutting, to sewing, to decorating (the really fun part!)

steampunk-teddy-bear-hats-640x259

After the bears are all sewn up, I add the ears and the noses.

 

And then, I bring out my organized box of embroidery thread and begin to add names on their paws.

organizing-threads-360x640

Last come the bows, tags, and the cards. 🙂

And there you have a bear. The large sherbet bear shows the fur in the beginning, to the finished bear.

A creation made with love to last a lifetime.

Sabrina’s Vampire

Synopsis

Sabrina’s life was a mess, suspended from her police job, she ran to Vegas for a break, to escape the torment and embarrassment. She followed this up by getting blind drunk and down an alleyway with two thugs who wanted more than a goodnight kiss. Kyle, a vampire, hears her scream and against his better judgement enters the alley and saves her. As she collapses into his arms he had a deep need to take her home? He never takes anyone to his home! Soon Sabrina is ingrained in him – he can’t get enough – can’t let her go and just why are his bites not healing on her neck? When he finds out he is shocked – he must keep her – make her stay! Will she? Will this woman stay in the arms of a vampire?

kyle teaser - leave that lassie alone

Excerpt

“Here,one perfect red rose for another perfect red rose.”

Kyle handed her the rose and kissed her gently on the side of her lips.

Sabrina held the rose and looked down at it. It was the exact shade of her gown. A perfect match. She smiled up at Kyle and she knew she had a tear or two in her eyes.

Red Hair. Beautiful Woman with Curly Long Hair. High quality image.

Excerpt

The taxi driver’s voice interrupted her pondering. “We’re here.”

She hadn’t even realized the car had stopped, or that he had got out and retrieved her case from the rear. The door on the passenger side open as he stuck his head in.

“Oh, thank you.” she mumbled as she handed over the cash to pay and took her case, before heading inside the terminal.

The airport was busy, as usual, but not too bad and it wasn’t long ‘til she was through to the departure lounge. Once again wondering on her decision to go to Vegas. Using up savings that she’ll probably need in the coming months. “If I don’t get away I’ll go nuts!” She thought as she waited patiently for the boarding call.

Opening her kindle, she tried to read, the words blurring together again and again, before she finally boarded the plane. Settling down in her seat she looked out the small window to her left. Watching her home city of Glasgow as they started to taxi for take-off. As the plane picked up speed, the wheels leaving the ground she felt a sense of relief like never before.

“First thing I’m doing is getting drunk!”  She thought, no idea the life changing repercussions that decision would have.

Ronan SEB 3 - sam cradling head

Excerpts:
“Creed, keep my people safe ‘til I get there. Okay?” Ronan almost whispered this last plea, the thought of any of his people being hurt, or worse, caused a cold sweat to appear on his skin.

He clearly heard Creed’s intake of breath, exhaling slowly before confirming what Ronan had guessed. “I’ll give up my own life for them. Don’t ever think I wouldn’t. I’ll be up, on guard, and alert until you get here. I don’t think I’m going to rest until this is over and done with and I rip this fucker’s heart out of his chest with my bare hand.”

Ronan stopped pacing, the hatred in Creed’s voice so great he wondered just what this person had done. “I’ll be there tomorrow, I’ll text with an ETA. Make sure there’s transport at the airstrip for us. Oh, and Creed, you are not alone. We’ll fight this danger as we do all others…together. There’s not a man or woman who won’t stand by your side.”

“Ronan, we may need them, all of them.”

 *****

Starr SEB 3 - pushed hips forward

As they carried on, the Wolves slowed their pace slightly, obviously going at the pace of the less able within the Pack. On and on they ran as Ronan kept his senses on alert and his eyes peeled for any danger. More than two hours later Ronan could spy vehicles parked on a dirt track and he let out a long sigh. “Thank fuck! We’ve got them here safe, Puff.”

“Yes, we have,” she replied as she hovered overhead.

What happened next had Ronan’s heart aching within his chest.

As the Wolves slowed to a standstill none of them transformed immediately. Instead, Jason, the Alpha stood in the middle as the rest circled around. When all of the Wolves were in place Jason’s beast raised its head and howled loud and long before the rest joined in.

The hairs on Ronan’s arms stood up at the sound, only having heard it a few times previous; the Wolves were mourning their dead.

The howls were full of pain and suffering as each and every one of them grieved for the fallen Wolves. The sound so haunting it almost brought tears to Ronan’s eyes. As the sound died down Starr dived, flying over the gathered Wolves, and letting out her own roar of anguish. That sound did force a tear to escape from Ronan’s left eye and he was grateful the force of the wind caused it to vanish quickly.

Leaning forward he placed his head along the base of her neck, moving a hand to gently stroke her black scales. When her bellow ended she flew straight up, causing him to hang on with a death grip to keep from plummeting to the ground that was now so very far below.

Ronan SEB 2 - stop perving over naked body

Excerpts:
 Ronan dialed a number from memory, it rang only once before being answered. “Ronan, a little early for house calls is it not?”

Josef, his Sire, spoke before he could get a word out. He checked his watch, it wasn’t that early. “Sorry, Josef, but we’ve got news; I need your help…”

Josef cut him off, “Done.”

Ronan smiled as he replied, “You’ve not even asked what it is yet.”

Josef’s answer was immediate. “That is irrelevant, if you require my help, then you shall have it. Now, Ronan, tell me what’s prompted this call for assistance.”

Ronan chuckled as he went on. “It’s news about the Dragon we know is being held in the Rockies. Serge, one of my Wolves, has found it. He’s waiting there as we speak and I think we may need Peri too. The Witch involved uses dark magic and we have Esther, but Paul told me how powerful Peri is and you did say she would help, if needed. I think we need her, Josef, together with you and Gabe. What do ya say? Want to come and help rescue a Dragon?”

Josef’s head swirled around. “I can sense magic.”

Charmaine let out a small whimper which had Sam holding her even closer. Peri’s hands were moving quickly, a silent and exquisite dance in front of her body. Just as Sam was about to ask Josef what it was he had sensed, all hell broke loose.

Gabe growled, leaping forward as he transformed so quickly that Sam barely heard the cracking of bones as he did so. Josef snarled and Peri shouted. “Gabe! No! Stay back!”

Sam pushed Charmaine behind him as he saw two hooded figures in the passage in front of them. The scent of dark magic cloying in the air around them. “Shit! Take care of her!” he shouted to the Elite squad at his rear as he moved forward, careful to stay out of the line of fire of the magic he knew Peri would be releasing.

He watched as Gabe’s Wolf closed the distance between them in mere seconds, his huge beast leaping towards the figures. The howl that the animal released told everyone he had met dark magic and his massive body fell like a stone, landing in a crumpled heap on the rock floor.

Josef’s loud roar and Peri’s scream turned his blood to ice. “Dear God, I hope he’s okay!” he thought, knowing if the Wolf was dead that Josef would go on a rampage like none he had ever witnessed. The bond between the two, or rather, now three, so great it was miraculous to witness.

Ronan teaser - just seen dragon

Excerpts:

He could feel her fear, her panic, as she moved with incredible speed, trying to escape the Vampire. There was no sign of the Witch as Ronan picked up his pace and left Drake standing as he took off after them.

As he burst through the door at the back Ronan saw two things, the Vampire still running on but his own feet stilled at the other sight. An enormous, black Dragon stood in front of the Vampire, taking off into the air with a speed that belied it’s size. Its colossal wings beating madly as it gained height, causing a downdraft that knocked the Vampire chasing it completely off his feet, up into the air and then falling to the ground.

Ronan lifted his head and did the only thing he could think of. “Stop! I want to help! My Sire helped a family of Dragons centuries ago––please––I don’t want to hurt you!”

He roared at the top of his voice and saw the large, long, scaly, neck whip around…those violet eyes locking with his. “Please,” he murmured as it gained even more height and flew away with such speed he could barely keep his eyes on it.

Starr teaser - running from vamp

Ronan was ready to leave the room when she finally spoke. “What is going on with us? I feel something, like I’m being pulled towards you. Why? Are you using some kind of magic?”

Ronan actually laughed, magic…he hated magic. “No, I’m not using any magic. In fact I don’t particularly like it, and I don’t know what’s going on between us. You’re nothing but a girl…”

Starr’s laughter sounded loud in the kitchen and he watched as she continued, almost choking in the process. What the hell did she find so funny?

She finally stopped, took a deep breath, then a sip of coffee before speaking. “A girl? You think I’m a young girl? That’s good, thanks for the compliment. It’s obvious you have no clue whatsoever about Dragons. I’m over a hundred years old. We kinda live forever…unless we’re killed that is. So, Ronan, I’m no more a girl than you are a young man, Vampire.”

Ronan gazed into those eyes, he was sure he could actually fall right on in, and as Starr’s words made it through to his brain he raised an eyebrow, a small smile on his face. So she wasn’t a girl, good to know. However, she was still entrusted to his care and he was sure as hell not going to take advantage of her. She was alone and vulnerable, scared and beautiful…God was she beautiful.

He hissed as his thoughts wandered, again, and tried to clear his head. No matter what was going on he had to stay in control of the situation. He was not going to take her into his arms and carry her to his bed. No, that wasn’t going to happen, even if that’s what he wanted to do.
