Fun Times with Pinterest Guest blog and Giveaway with Deborah Camp

I used Pinterest for the first time while writing “Through His Touch” and it was so much fun! I’ve always researched, printed off articles and pictures, and kept them in a notebook while I wrote a book, but this time I slapped photos on a Pinterest board and shared them with anyone who wanted to look at them.

It gave me easy reference and I could direct people there if they wanted “visuals” of Levi’s apartment, the city of Atlanta, and the cast of characters I imagined as I wrote the novel. I also included photos of things and settings that will be in the third book of the Mind’s Eye series.

For example, I have photos of rooms that inspired me concerning Levi’s apartment. Like his living room and a large picture of a wolf – perfect for him! Also a photo of a kitchen/dining area that looks very similar to his and pictures of Olympic Park, which he can see from his penthouse.

I pinned photos of people/actors I “cast” for the book, including photos of men who had Levi’s “look” (he resembles Ian Somerhalder) and Trudy’s “look.” Meg Ryan (in the film “French Kiss” is my main vision of Trudy). Gonzo is there, along with Wes.

Pinning was a great tool for me and I plan to use it for every book I write now. I also have a board about cowboys because I write historical romances set in the west, too!

Drop by and check out my Pinterest boards. If you have boards on there, let me know so that we can share. In the meantime, happy reading and pinning!
