Inspirations for AS

By Georgia Lyn on August 13, 2013 in Blog

So, today has just been one of those days…meaning my muse has gone off to play hide, since I’m really not in the mood to go seek with Dammit–that’s my muse’s name, I’m gonna  share my  collage of pictures… well, some of them, anyway that became my inspiration for Absolute Surrender, for those of you who wondered…

Echo was a tough one to write, with such a rough past.

What the castle would look like except             The forest, deeper in the Guardians estate

more ivy on the walls

Grace’s Cathedral inspired the idea for                 Aethan’s Rev, the one Echo drives off in…

the church Near East River.

 and now for an excerpt to refresh or wet your appetite:

Echo tightened her grip on the dagger. Her gaze fixed on the stranger who radiated menace, her stance ready for a fight.

“I’m not going to hurt you.”ASad

The cadence of his voice startled her. Like a low rumble of thunder, it caressed her senses. A flash of heat zipped through her veins. Was he trying to seduce her into giving him whatever it was he wanted? It sure as hell was close to working.

She stared pointedly at the obsidian dagger he held. “Yeah, right.”

At her words, he stilled. Slowly, he sheathed the blade on his belt.

Was she supposed to do the same? Too bad he’d just have to be disappointed. She waved him off with her dagger. “Good. Now, get out of my way.”

There was a slight shift in those cool gray depths. Irritation? Amusement? She couldn’t be sure, not when his expression had the tensility of granite.


Have a great day, until later 🙂

    Oh my God, look at those pictures. They are beautiful, and totally match my imagination of everything in the book. Great idea to post them, Lyn.

      thanks Piper 🙂
      I make up picture boards on Pinterest for my books, and thought it would be better to post some of them here 🙂

      thanks Kiru!!!
      Love that cover, too. When I first saw it, I must have drooled all over it–for a week 😀

    I appreciated seeing the photos. Yes my minds eye gave me ideas on what you wrote. But I do like seeing what you were think of better. I love my kindle, but miss the hardcovers and the art work so much. It’s not the same. I would love to see your picture thoughts of (all) your books characters? That’s asking a lot. Forgive me in advance? Lol.Mona. D
