Do you have a board on Pinterest?

I'm sure many of you have already heard about the fun that is Pinterest.  For those of you that haven't, OMG!  Why the hell not?! 

Just kidding.  :) 

Pinterest is a really cool site that becomes mildly addictive (you've been warned) the longer you're on it.  First off, you create an account, then build "boards."  You fill (pin) these boards with pictures and videos of things that interest, intrigue, motivate you.  These boards are shared with your friends, who may repin your pictures as things that interest, intrigue, motivate them.

It's a continuous cycle of sharing ideas.  And I love it!

I pin photos of my dogs, our gardening adventures, the follies of raising chickens, backyard ideas, places I've traveled and places I'd like to travel to, and even organizational ideas for around the house.

How does that pertain to author life, you might ask.  Well, aside from pinning my books, I pin books of friends, photos that motive me to write, author inspirational quotes, locations that I might like to use for book settings, etc.

Just yesterday, I created two new boards:  Liz Baker's Crazy Life and Athena's Ambrosia.

Those of you who read my Liz Baker books will definitely enjoy these boards.  Though not very full at this moment, I am hoping to pin dozens upon dozens of pictures that relate to the book series.  I even have plans for a Chad board, ladies!  We both know you wanna see Chad in all his ex-cop hotness.  Mmmm...

If you're already on Pinterest stop by and follow (I like to follow back).  If you're not on Pinterest, what the heck are you waiting for?  :D

Have a lovely Wednesday!
