Before I even start to write a novel, I create secret Pinterest boards for the characters, settings, and my plot ideas. It’s one of my absolutely favorite things to do, and helps me remember ideas and details. As I write, I add things and delete images that no longer fit the story. When it gets close to the novel’s release date, I go back through and cut duplicate images and ones that I simply don’t like any more.
For Entangled Secrets, I have a main board that gives an overview of the world as Chandler Parrish experiences it, things from her past and present. Then I have secondary boards devoted to Chandler and her love interest in the story (Lionel). Those boards give a closer peek into their lives and loves.
I want to forewarn you that my Pinterest boards do contain spoilers. But if you’re still curious, here’s a link to my recently revealed Entangled Secrets boards: https://bit.ly/2R1k1rq
Pregnant and alone at twenty-one, Chandler Parrish sought refuge within the Northern Circle coven’s secluded complex. Never revealing the identity of her child’s father, Chandler has raised her now eight-year-old son, Peregrine, in peace, and used her talent as an artist and welder to become a renowned metal sculptor. But her world is shaken to the core when Peregrine shows signs of natural faerie sight—a rare and dangerous gift to see through faerie glamour and disguises that could only have come from his father’s genes. Worse yet, the boy has seen a monstrous faerie creature trailing Lionel Parker, a magic-obsessed journalist determined to expose the witching world.
But the very man who threatens the witches’ anonymity may also be key to healing Chandler’s long broken heart. As dangerous desires and shocking secrets entangle, new faerie threats and demonic foes close in on the coven and High Council. Loyalties will be tested. Fierce magics will be called upon. And Chandler will have to face her past to save all she holds dear: her coven, her child—and perhaps even her own soul.
