Faeries & Pics

To celebrate the release of my latest Cobblestone Press eBook this Friday, I've been having a Faerie Week over at my blog. Basically I've been sharing some cheeky excerpts and giving away things. And I'm going to continue it here, today.

I really enjoy writing this series. The faeries of Breena have totally intrigued both me and the muse. We can't stop going back. Lol. Anyway, today I wanted to share some inspirational pics that I've used while writing the trilogy.

I'm going to start with a photo of the actual place where the idea first struck me. I was walking down this path one day, looked out into the trees and there was the idea.

I don't know who made this next awesome pic, but I think it's absolutely gorgeous and never fails to fuel the muse and I with faerie inspiration...

The next two pics were made by Delphine Levesque Demers. I found several of her pics inspirational while I was writing FAERIE QUEEN. There's a dark quality about them that really fit the theme of the tale...
This one was made by Jessica Galbreth. My gosh, if you want some inspirational faerie pics, you have to visit her website! She's got some lovely pieces, and they never fail to inspire...

And of course, the artist who made the covers needs a huge mention. Leita Stevens has captured every one of the stories perfectly. Actually, I was blown away by just how accurate she made each one. She really got the imagery, and for that I'm very grateful. She's awesome!

Now, if you'd like the chance to win one of these little bottles filled with faerie dust:

Just leave a comment on this post. I will pick one random winner tomorrow and announce it over at my blog. Oh, and it could be any one of the above bottles... you just never know which one the faeries will pick for you. ;)

I'm a faerie lore buff. Have been for years. Every country has it's own varieties of faeries too.

The artist's name who did the first pic escapes me. I even dug out some of the greeting cards with her work and her name wasn't on them. Argh! It'll drive me nuts now, lol.

Here's a faerie link: www.worldoffroud.com It has a lot of cool stuff on it. Froud's faerie art is amazing.
