I am probably the last person on the planet to hop on board Pinterest. I have just barely dipped my toe into the water over at Facebook, and please don’t get me started on Twitter. I don’t understand Twitter’s purpose…..but after poking around Pinterest, a lightbulb went off. “Ahhh….. I understand how I can use this!”
Sometimes it is hard for a writer to describe the kind of writing they do to a new reader. The book cover can indicate tone, genre, and overall mood…..but the cover of a book is out of our control. Pinterest is not! So I have the opportunity to hunt for images that capture the mood, settings, even some scenes that occur in the book.
I’ve put together a few basic pages over at Pinterest that can give a little more insight into my books. For example, much of Against the Tide has a gothic vibe. It is darkly romantic and filled with suspense. The spooky house above looks very much like a where one of the major characters lives and where a lot of important scenes occur. If you’ve got a moment, hop on over to Pinterest and check out the board for Against the Tide!
