Time passed. I got busy editing my debut historical, Burning Sky.
Then I thought... why not make a "behind the scenes" or inspiration page for Burning Sky? I love looking at photos that inspired other authors, whether its actors who resemble their characters, or photos of their clothing (especially with historicals), or the book's setting. And then I thought... Pinterest is actually better suited to that than a static page here on the website.
So I reactivated my account, still mulling over the idea, and discovered that Pinterest now allows you to create "secret" boards, so that the content isn't immediately viewable to anyone else.
Perfect. I could build my Burning Sky board and not have to worry about spoilers, since the book doesn't release until August.
I got busy, had loads of fun, and now I finally "get" Pinterest.
I'm not sure when I'll make the whole board public. That's something I'll talk over with my publishing house. But meantime, here's a little sneak peek of the content.
I made this collage at a photo editing site called PicMonkey.com. I highly recommend it!
