Book Pictures

I've had two friends try this and I love it. Here are some pictures that go along with my current WIP. Right now I'm going through another round of revisions and hope to have it ready to query by fall! 


                    

What do you think? Look interesting? This was so much fun! You'll definitely be seeing this for each novel. Give it a try :)




UPDATE: For those who wanted the picture of my MC (I can't believe I forgot hers), here it is! Of course, she's not quite as fabulous, but that's because she's not into the whole make up and trendy clothes thing. But she's almost as beautiful...it just comes with being what she is :)

  3. Fun! I'll have to try this. I'm really curious as it goes from trailer park with barbed wire fences to sports cars. . . interesting. ;)

  5. So- which boy is which character? I so want to know. And you don't have any pictures of your MC, except maybe the one with the tears? I'd love to see who you envision would play her. Loved the pictures!

  6. I love it! And I'm with Melanie, I want to know which boy is who! The first one gives me a Rock vibe, but maybe I'm wrong...

  7. Visualizing works wonderfully for me. Going through magazines and taking all the stuff out helps me put my characters in their surroundings and helps me to remember the things they like.

  8. I loved this. What a way to get your point across. An author I love is Tera Lynn Childs, she does character collages for each book then posts it for the teens (and us) to check it out after the book is done. It's so much fun to see how it evolves!!!

    I can't wait until we're querying together and waiting for the great news!

  9. Mettina-Don't worry, you will...soon!

    Shari-Thanks :)

    Madeline-I'm glad you like it. I am loving my story even more with each draft!

    Katie-Haha. Thanks. Gotta have two boys right?

    Melanie-I can't believe I forgot a picture of Brielle! I've found a few though. I'll try to post them later.

    Shallee-Rock vibe because of his jaw line? That jaw should be on the other boy and the eyes need to be switched...after that, Rock is actually on the bottom :) Smoldering right? Haha.

    J.L.-That's a great idea! Too bad I don't have many magazine's. I don't have time to read them :)

    Jen-You know what's funny about you mentioning Tera Lynn Childs? It was while reading one of her books that I got the idea for this book! Crazy, but super awesome. I'll have to check out her character collages. And I'm excited to be querying with you too!

  11. That looks cool! I have some pictures saved up for mine, but I don't know if I'll jump on the bandwagon or not...
