yes, i’ve finally succumbed to the lovely evil that is pinterest. i’ve had an account for months, but somehow managed to avoid the lure until just this past week or so. i’ve fallen head over heels in love with it (and it’s valentine’s day! how tidy is that?).

as writers, we’re so used to using words to express ourselves. our books come to life with nouns and verbs, voice and tone. and for writers of young adult, we usually don’t get to play around with illustrations–even the cover art, for the most part, is pretty much out of our hands.

what’s so cool about pinterest is that it lets us paint our books with visuals, to create it again using story boards. we get colour, shadow, textures. and it’s pretty damn fun. find my board for DUALED here. for all my boards, follow me here.

oh, and over on friday the thirteeners, we’ve got a special guest! ya author chris howard (ROOTLESS, fall 2012) drops by to sing us a song via vlog. check him out here!
