PINTEREST Inspired

Authors are using Pinterest to provide fans with fun information about their characters and books.

Confession; I’m a Pinterest junky and now I’ve discovered even more reasons to love it. Books and authors! Pinterest is a useful tool for authors to promote, organize and find inspiration for stories. Here are a few ways that you as a fan of great books can learn more about an author’s work, or as a writer, you can use pinterest for inspiration.

1. Booklists: pin covers of your books or your favorite books.

2. Inspiration: pin faces, places, research for story ideas.

3. Faces: celebrities, ordinary people, whatever inspires images of the fictional characters.

4. Research: categorize by time period or topic

5. Rooms: colors and furnishings, places, settings of novels.

6. Clothing: wardrobes for fictional characters.

7. Profiles of book characters: personal articles, hobbies, treasured mementoes.

Along with author names, you can also find pages specific to book titles and publishing houses.
