Achem…I don’t know why, I just never got into it. I remember my friend Abbi Glines (you HAVE to check out her new book WHILE IT LASTS—- O. M. G.) talking about Pinterest in a FB post a while back and I sort of scratched my head and looked it up and that’s about as far as I got. You HAVE to check out Suzy Turner’s and T.R. Grave’s posts about Pinterest because they are WAY more savvy then me. I’m at the total newbie stage where I’m just beginning to figure out how amazingly fun this can be. Honestly, I’m more of a visual person than anything so if you are too, I think you’ll love it. Basically Suzy talks about using Pinterest to make book mood boards. I love that! I’ve totally made those out of magazine cut outs. This is just a super-cool digital way to share your inspirations for your books with readers and friends. I’m really into Halloween and I’ve started a little Halloween board. It’s a sort of mash up of food, jewelry and odd Halloween stuff I come across. I’ve also got a board called Inspiration. Not for any book in particular, but when I see the photo, a story comes alive for me. My next board is called Dreams Come True. It’s great fun and like Suzy and Ms. Grave say…TOTALLY ADDICTING….like I needed one more distraction from my edtis? Not. How do you use Pinterest? What boards do you have?
