Wolf's Son: An Online Jigsaw Puzzle


Jigsaw puzzle made from Wolf's Son Cover

Wolf's Son is a Puzzle!

Do you enjoy online jigsaw puzzles?

The puzzle is designed with 96 pieces to keep them from being too small to see well.

To add to the challenge, some pieces will need to be rotated to make them fit (right-click on the piece to make it rotate).

If you've read this story previously, it has been updated. 

The scene from the blog post Vignette: Nate has been added to this short story. 

If you've read the previous version of this short story and the story snippet in the blog post, you know the full story. 

Take care and stay safe!

Follow My Blog

 Follow Me!


The Follow Me link doesn't seem to work. It will let me follow myself, but when others try, it won't add them.

Unfortunately, it's the only one available through my provider and I can't fix it. So, here are other ways you can follow me:

I have an Instagram account where you can follow me, too, but I'm still trying to learn how to use it, so I don't post there often.


As long as I've been writing blog posts, I've never added a 'Follow Me' link to the blog.

Unfortunately, this means I don't have a clear idea of how many regular readers I have. 

The statistics show how many visits I get to a single page or post. I even know how many visits I get per day across the entire blog. But I would love to know how many people come by often.

One of my author friends has thousands of people following her blog. I know my readers don't, at least not yet, number so high. But just to see how many regular readers I have, I posted at Follow Me link at the top right corner of the screen.

Please consider adding yourself to my followers. I can't tell you how much I appreciate knowing more about my readers and followers.

Other News

I've been alternating between two manuscripts, again. 

Tala Ridge Storm, book 2 in the Tala Ridge Shifters series: I'm still working on Tala Ridge Storm. The plot has filled out nicely. Plotting is an activity I don't do until the book is about half-written. Then I need an overview of where it's going and what previously mentioned foreshadowing needs to be picked up and finished off. At this point, I have a rough sketch of the rest of the book. Words written: 24,458.

Not For Sale, book 2 in the Billionaire Brothers series: This is a sweet, clean billionaire story and is a long-overdue book. The main male character is Kiel Helms, the brother of Grant from the first book. Words written: 9,895.

Updates and Corrections: One of my tasks this season is to correct the grammatical and spelling errors readers have found in my books. (Thank you for letting me know!)

I work very hard to eliminate these before publishing, but there's no such thing as perfect, so... I have updated and corrected the first six books in The Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Series. 

If you purchased an ebook, go to your Amazon account.  Hover over the Accounts & Lists link. On the popup, find and click on Your Content and Devices. Search for the title of the book. If an Update Available link is located beneath the book title, click it, then click the Update button. This will give you the most recent version of the book. If it's not available (and sometimes if the corrections are minor, Amazon won't provide that option), you can't update to the newest version. (Sorry! 🐺)

Take care and stay safe!

Introducing: Heather Karn, a YA Paranormal Author

Introducing Heather Karn

When I picked up Negative Energy by Heather Karn, I thought she was a new writer to me. 

Negative Energy is a standalone book, but it is also the sixth book in The First Blood Series. The series has one book to go to be complete.

Visiting her author page on Amazon, I discovered that I have read other books she's written. Specifically, the Weregal Chronicles

Heather writes young adult paranormal books. While romance is in at least some of her books, profanity and overt sex are not there. 

If you're looking for a new, clean paranormal young adult series, check out Heather's books. And if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, Heather's books are in KU! 

(If not, check out the link at the bottom of the page for two free months. With a subscription, you can read all Heather's books without buying them!) 

Negative Energy Blurb:

Shannon Dart’s magic is out of control. Rather, her flaring temper causes her magic to blow up the nearest object. With ninety days to learn control, and a bully set on making that impossible, Shannon is at her wits end. That is, until a wolf shifter appears in her first hour class after his pack moves to town. There’s something about this shifter that Shannon can’t put her finger on.

With Jackson’s help, Shannon is hopeful to learn control, especially when her magic responds to him. However, the rising tension between the magical coven and the wolf pack create problems for the two friends. If Jackson is the key to unlocking Shannon’s control, can they find a way to make it work while keeping their distance, or are they bound to fail?

Negative Energy is the story of how Shannon and Jackson met years before the events in First Blood. Can be read separately from the series.

Wolf's Son: Now Available on Amazon


Wolf's Son

Wolf's Son, a prequel to the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Series, has been published!

For the past three years, Wolf's Son was only available to those who subscribed to my newsletter, Lynn's Muse. 

In the past month, several of my readers have mentioned they would like to review the story. As a freebie to join my list, there was no easy way to review it. 

So, I decided to publish Wolf's Son on Amazon in ebook format.

The book is still FREE for anyone who wishes to join my newsletter list

Subscribers receive two to four emails per month giving new information about upcoming books, or other news about me or my writing process.

However, not everyone wants to subscribe to mailing lists. I understand this. I'm a little choosy which lists I subscribe to, as well. I've been asked how to get the book (short story) without subscribing. Until now, this wasn't possible.

If you've read Wolf's Son, please consider leaving a review.

Sneak Preview

Grant Rollins wrapped his newborn son in a small blanket and put him in his mother’s arms. The wonder on her face matched that in Grant’s heart. I have a son! Visions of running through the pack howling his news vanished when Linette gasped. In her arms, their tiny baby shimmered, then changed to a squirming, whining pup.

Blinking at the panic in Linette’s eyes, Grant shook his head. “It can’t be,” he whispered to his mate. “It can’t!”

Beneath his son, Linette’s chest labored with her panicked breathing. “Grant, if Jackson finds out...”

“Shhh.” His heart raced and sudden beads of sweat dripped into his eyes. “Shhh.” Closing his eyes, Grant pressed his hand to his pup’s tiny head. Change and do not shift again without permission! A soft puppy whine ended as the pup shifted back to a baby.

Grant leaned close to his mate and pressed his hand to her forehead. Jackson will not harm him. We must leave. Now. Tonight. Before the others know he has birthed.

Wordless, she nodded. Her pain shivered through him. It’s too soon to move her, he told Fareth.

If we don’t, she and the pup will die.

Grant’s jaw ticked. Over my dead body. Fareth, his wolf, agreed. 

Other News

I'm finding that splitting my attention between two stories helps clear my mind. So, at this point, I've written 24,412 words in Tala Ridge Storm

I'm also working on book 2 in The Billionaire Brothers sweet romance series, Not for Sale, with 8,084 words written. 

By working on two stories at the same time, I can switch from one to the other when I have a minor plot issue to resolve.
