Pinterest is one of my favorite places to spend time when I'm percolating a novel. I love pulling together boards that help me visualize characters, places, and even the atmosphere or mood of a story.

So basically it's like going out to a book reading...without either of us leaving the comfort of our homes. I loved… Continue reading “LIVE-n It Up” Appearance
