Nantucket Beaches


I've just completed a mini-vacation to the island of Nantucket, located about 30 miles off the shore of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The above picture is Cisco Beach. We biked there. It's about 6 miles from town (one way).

This next beach is much harder to get to. It's called Great Point, and is located on the northern tip of the island, between both the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Sound.


This beach is actually part of the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge and is an area protected for seals and birds. You can only reach it via 4 wheel drive jeep, and a 5 mile drive over a thick and rutted beach. My husband and I were the only ones there that day, plus the ranger.

Madaket Beach (below) was easily our favorite because it's wide and long and just beautiful. The only problem - this is Nantucket, so you can't really get here easily for a beach day. There is no parking. So you need to have one of the very expensive homes near the beach to enjoy it, or you could ride a bike there.


There are even houses right on the beach which don't have any parking, not even for one car. I was wondering how they use a house like that. But the beach is gorgeous.

I like this view of Sconset Beach because of the pretty dune grass which is all over Nantucket. The island suffers from severe erosion problems so they leave the grass alone.


Since Nantucket is an island, they have many more beautiful beaches. The only problem is they can be hard to access. Nantucketers are not anxious to be bombarded by day trippers, and most of the beaches are bordered by homes which are private property. Still, we managed to see a fair number of them with a jeep and some bicycles.

My story, Love Charm for Dakota, is set in Nantucket.

Would you use a love charm to capture a man?

Nantucket is the home of hedge fund titans, old money and hidebound tradition. Habits are comfortable, and the habits of the rich are very comfortable. Into Cabot Saltonstall's sedate world blows Dakota Bishop, possessor of a wild spirit and a magical love charm. Cabot's blue-blood family history includes an ancestor who resigned from the Salem Witch trials, because he refused to believe in witchcraft.

But Cabot is all too willing to be bewitched.


Dakota can't stay still long enough for anyone to tie her down, nor is Cabot the right kind of guy for her. If only he'd have sex with her so she could get him out of her system. Why does he need to be so traditional with his emotions and plans for the future? Does she know enough of witchcraft to overcome the spell of the accidentally cast love charm?






Writing and Gardening

I’ve been working on the cover for Claiming the White Bear. It helps me to visualize the characters. I added a little word count to that book yesterday (up to 12,000+ now), and to SEAL Wolf Surrender. I’d prefer a conflictive couple for the cover of the new white bear book but couldn’t find any. Conflict is better! For a book that is romantic suspense.




Anyway, I started Claiming the White Bear at Christmas time while visiting my son and DIL. He was playing a game and I was watching it and giving direction (lol) and writing. Perfect vacation. But then I got a new contract for 3 more books and had to get down to writing deadline books.



Oh, and my daughter claimed the Sunshine ligustrum that volunteered next to the house. So I’ve got to try and dig it up for her.   I love being able to share plants!
I’m back to the word count!!! Have a great day!!!

Come With Me To Merry Olde England!

Readers of this blog know I have itchy feet. It doesn't take much for my wanderlust to kick in, and then I'm off on another adventure. So...

Last month I filed my taxes, figured out my refund, and immediately bought a ticket to the closest fun place I could think of to spend those dollars, er pounds... England!

So here I am in London for three weeks! I love England. Once out of the capital, the scenery is like a postcard! Last weekend I rented a car and hit the road. This is the countryside on the way to Poole in Dorset.































Ate lunch at this typical British pub… The Cleave


This is the main street through Poole…


Typical thatched roof cottages and stone cottages line the roads – so quaint!
















The roads are pretty crazy out in the country… this one in front of the whitewashed cottage was actually a 2-way street!!!  Gives new meaning to “driving defensively” LOL!!


I hope these pictures came out okay, because I was (mostly) taking them from a moving car, LOL!  It was a rare sunny weekend (but COLD) and today (Friday) it’s predicted to be rainy (as usual) in London as you read this.

I'll be back home before next month's post, but I wanted to share these classic pictures with you!

Cheers,
Jenna

Heart of the Wolf--Thriller!

“The thrilling start to a wonderful werwolf series!”

Fresh Fiction Review

Heart of the Wolf
Terry Spear

Reviewed by Kim Roller
Posted April 23, 2018

HEART OF THE WOLF is the first book of the series of the Heart of the Wolf
same name and I look forward to reading the rest. I was also pleasantly surprised to get a bonus novella about Bella’s twin sister Serena after finishing this newly reissued title. There was also a sneak peek of the different series based on the white wolves that Terry Spear is writing about also. I look forward to reading all of her Werewolf series in the future. They are definite must-reads on my list of series to complete. http://freshfiction.com/review.php?id=65658

SUMMARY

Danger, intrigue, and forbidden love in a wolf shifter world so compelling, you’ll swear it’s real life…

She makes her way as a lone wolf until childhood friend, Devlyn, comes to bring her home. On their journey back, they get tangled in up in unimaginable danger and must apprehend a werewolf murderer while keeping their identity secret from humans.

Between a Wolf and Hard Place $1.99!! And How Does $1,000,000,000 Stack Up?


 $1.99!!!
 
















Alpha werewolf Brett Silver has an ulterior motive when he donates a prized family heirloom to the Silver Town hotel. Ellie MacTire owns the place with her sisters, and he’s out to get her attention.
Ellie is even more special than Brett knows. She’s a wolf shifter with a unique ability to commune with the dead. Ellie has been ostracized, so she protects herself and those she loves by revealing nothing—not even when strange and dangerous things begin to happen in Silver Town. And especially not to the devastatingly handsome and generous wolf who’s determined to win her over…





So I was trying to figure out how big a stack of $1,000,000 would be in $100 bills. Hey, it’s doable. You can put it in a briefcase, no problem! You can stick $10,000 worth of $100 bills in your pocket, easy. That bundle is 1/2″ thick if it’s all new dollars. If it’s old bills, it can be up to 1″ thick. You can do it!





Research is fun, but time-consuming. I end up reading all kinds of things that I don’t need for the story. Sometimes, I discover something else that might really add to the story. Sometimes, I learn I can’t do what I envisioned because it wouldn’t be feasibly possible. Now, if I wrote strictly fantasy, then I could stretch the bounds of reality, yet I still would need some constraints to make the fantasy world seem real. Even though my world isn’t exactly straight up real, I mean, if werewolves didn’t really exist, I need to keep the world as real as possible.

I learn all kinds of amazing things when I do research for a book. Who would have ever thought you could keep $10,000 in your pocket without any problem???

Have a super fun day!!
