Every Tuesday (ok two days late this week because I had a guest author yesterday and Book Hooks).
I will post Art. FanArt, Paintings, Drawings, etc. Why? Because I cannot draw at all! Not even a circle (which looks like a sickly misshaped oval). And animals? Several times I tried to draw a horse for the Texas Rodeo Art Competition and it always looked like a cow from another planet.
So, there are tons of talented artist out there. If you are an artist or knows someone who is, have them contact me. I would be happy to showcase on my blog their work.
Today, I have images of heroines. Not any you know. But these images speak to me and inspire me to create characters and worlds that fit them.
What do you think about these? Do they inspire you?
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and contemporary romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
