My Pinterest Board for *The Song Inside*
For a long time, I avoided the world of Pinterest.
I know, I know. As an aspiring author, shouldn't I want to be on yet another social media site? (Can you sense the sarcasm???)
But seriously. I'd heard how addicting Pinterest was and I just didn't have time to figure it out.
I finally started using it as a way to keep track of healthy recipes and articles on fitness. Truly, that was its only usefulness for me.
But recently, I've branched out and tried something new. I created a Pinterest board for my novel, The Song Inside. It was actually a fun way to share with you, my friends and readers, some images of what I pictured as I wrote my novel.
The board includes pictures of my characters, my setting, and different parts of my book. It doesn't give away any secrets or surprises, so no worries there. :)
To give you some context, here's a brief description of my book:
Aspiring Los Angeles singer Stacy Mills is desperate to keep a promise, but her chances seem slim when she's blacklisted in the theater community. Near-divorcee Marcy Mills is tired of failing and will do anything to finally bring harmony between her and her daughter. But when she enters Stacy in a local televised singing contest, she's shocked to learn they've both won spots. She figures there's no better way to grow closer to her daughter than to be near her, but Stacy's having a hard time letting go of the past and understanding her mom's motives for competing. For one to succeed, the other must fail. What will it take for their two hearts to beat in perfect rhythm at last?
I'd love for you to check it out and tell me what you think!
