Pinterest, Paperbacks, and Pie
I've been meaning to get on Pinterest for a while now, and this weekend I finally found the free time to do it. I've had all these pictures taking up space in my files forever and I'm glad I found them a permanent home.
I uploaded all the characters for both of my books, a small board with pins of Rhode Island, and another of pictures I found on morguefile.com. I love Pinterest, I really do, but it's such a time suck. I wanted to upload what I had, but suggestions kept pouring in and I followed link after link, finally ending up on a board with a thousand pictures from Rhode Island. Needless to say, I spent four hours there and barely finished my own boards. Also, following that last link made me incredibly homesick, so I think I'll stay away from Rhode Island boards from now on.
If you'd like to see who I chose for my characters in WOMEN OF A CERTAIN DEMOGRAPHIC or REMEMBERING YOU, please go here. http://www.pinterest.com/robynnerand
I finally uploaded the paperback conversions for both novels and they should be available for Christmas. I hate paperback formatting, I really do. I thought the learning curve for e-version was hard, but paperback is a lot harder. Actually, I take that back--it's not that it's harder, it's frustrating when margins don't match and the Header and Footer always gives me a hard time. It's getting a little easier as I do them, but because it's so long in between paperbacks, I forget what I've learned and then it's always trial and error until I get it right.
I'll have the links up as soon as they become available.
I needed something alliterative and Pie was all I could come up with. My two favorites are Boston Cream and Banana Cream. I also like fruit pies, and tarts. However, everything needs a healthy topping of whipped cream. I have an incredible sweet tooth and it gets me into trouble around the holidays. I would much rather overindulge in dessert rather than turkey or ham.
I hope you all have an incredible holiday season! See you in 2016.
