Setting Inspiration: Get Away From it All

Sometimes I like taking characters out of their normal routines, their normal settings and dropping them somewhere they might not normally visit. It can be a lot of fun researching a new place for their story. Here are some striking images that got me thinking about new settings.

Behind the Story: Pinterest Board and More Extras for HOW TO HEAL A LIFE

When I’m working on a book, I like using visuals to help inspire the story descriptions. I also find myself drawn to songs that I feel are a good fit for the characters and what they’re going through. You can check out my Song Playlist and Pinterest Board on the Behind the Story page of my website. (The playlist that I shared a couple of weeks ago has been updated to include additional songs.)

I’m also excited to share that HOW TO HEAL A LIFE is in the Book of the Week Poll at Love Bytes. You can check out the poll and vote here. Thanks so much for the support!

Also, a big thank-you to everyone who sent in personal notes about how much you enjoyed the book and to those who have left a review at bookstores. It all means so much to me, and the reviews really do help new books gain more visibility. Thank you! I have the best readers. Much love to you all. ❤

Story Inspiration: Close Together

Are they on a date? Did they just meet? Or are they friends sitting close? Does one have a crush on the other? Is one about to make a move? What are they talking about? Does someone have a secret? How will this scene end? So many ideas!
