Pinterest? What is that you say?
Definition from Techopedia: Pinterest is a social media website that allows users to organize and share images and videos from around the Web. Images uploaded by users are called Pins and may be organized into pinboards, which may be customized, themed and followed by other users. Users can also like or repin content shared by other pinners.
So, you pin your interests in a place where you can find them again; or your Pinterests.
You can find something online and you add it to your pins. Or you can find any of the thousands of pins that are already on Pinterest. (Like mine!)
Sharing more with all of you
I'm excited to start working on boards on Pinterest. I'm a very visual person, so this is helping me to keep the vision of writing alive and fresh in my head.
Luminata's own boards
Jessica's sharing with everyone the ideas behind the novel all about her: Luminata. The board is in an easy to look at place for inspiration behind the novel. I've created a board specifically for those of you interested in seeing what Jessica, Orhan, Opal, and even Jacob, look like in my head. I've included some of the other things that are part of the novel. I promise to add more as I go.

Kimberley Shead: Interview of an Author
In this crazy process of becoming an author, I was very fortunate to have found someone to take the journey with. Kimberley Shead is a writer of urban fantasy who lives in South East London.
Kimberley took some time out of her busy full time schedule to share with us about her own writing path. It is a very insightful look into why she's written her novels and how she's gotten to the place where she's sharing her stories with the world.
This is the second part of this two part interview. I hope you enjoy!
Q6. Which character have you enjoyed writing about the most? For what reasons?
I have enjoyed writing about the dynamics in the United Supernatural Crime Unit rather than an individual character.
The pressures of the ongoing unsolved equinox murders hangs heavy over the team. With previously high success rates they have to rethink how to approach catching the killer at large or suffer closure.
They are all victims of their own magical personalities. All interlinked in different ways, tensions often run high between members of the team.
The relationship between Misty and her mentor Gabriella is strained and she fights magical bonds that tie her to a colleague Cain while fighting to gain control of her mixed emotions.
Duke Upton is the puppeteer and runs the Unit with an egotistical use of magic over Gabriella.
In truth, I have enjoyed writing many of the characters in the book. A friend who is an illustrator, Briony Dixon, has drawn some of my hybrid characters. A demonic angel with an internal struggle, a witch fae, and a voodoo wizard.
