I like to use Pinterest to collect ideas and inspiration for my books. Pinterest now allows sections inside boards, which is a great way to organize images for a book series. Each book then has its own board inside the main board. I like this feature a lot.
The Ravensmuir board now has a section for each book in that world, from the Rogues of Ravensmuir through the Jewels of Kinfairlie, the True Love Brides and the Brides of Inverfyre.There’s still lots of pinning to be done, as this board is a massive project, but you can check it out now.
The Champions of St. Euphemia have their own board, which is pretty much complete.
There’s also a board for Rogues & Angels, which is a work in progress.
Finally, I have a couple of general boards: there’s also one for the eye candy of Castles. Here’s Medieval Eye Candy, which started out with images from illuminated manuscripts but has become a catch-all of interesting medieval images.
Do you use Pinterest? What kind of images do you collect there?
I’ve been getting organized at Pinterest these past few days, and gathering inspiration for Rogues & Angels. My boards have moved around a bit, since Pinterest now allows them to be nested – instead of each book having its own board, each book is a section within a board dedicated to each series.
Here’s the board for the Champions of St. Euphemia. The board existed before, for the series, but the books were separate. Now each book is in a section of its own. I realized the “series” pins were really for The Crusader’s Bride, so I popped them into that section.
There’s a new board for Rogues & Angels, which is a work in progress (and will be until the series is all written). You can follow it right here.
The Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre books have been gathered into a single board, to better echo the structure of this new website. Each book has a section of its own and there’s another section for the three keeps themselves, because those details are common to many of the books. Here’s the Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre board.
I still have my Medieval Eye Candy board, which is a catch-all for images that I find evocative of medieval romance. It’s right here.
I also discovered that I hadn’t turned on the Pinterest button for this website, but it’s on now – it appears when you hover over any of the images, and allows you to pin those images to your board of choice.
