Literary Architecture

As a writer, I have to take architecture into account when creating worlds. I often wonder if readers think about how much authors put into it – many draw up blueprints, either by hand, on a computer, or even hire a professional artist. Some map out whole worlds, carefully placing land and water precisely where we need them.

If you think back to your favorite stories in literature, you’ll find an amazing array of beautiful architecture. Lucky for us, some of most iconic displays have been gathered into a clever collection in this info-graphic, Homes of Classic Literature. I found it truly fascinating.

I’ve been given generous permission by the author to share the graphic here, but please click the above title or even the graphic below to offer your polite support for the hard work.

My special thanks to Sneha for sharing this!

Got Snow?

If you’re short on snow, come on up and see me. We’ve had three storms in the past eight days, so we’ve got plenty. I did manage to get some Muck boots out of it all, though. If you live in a cold weather area, I highly recommend them.

Aside from all the snow, not much else has been going on around here. I’m still making book covers and I write when I can. I’m attempting to re-edit all my published works to polish them up a bit. I’ve already updated my short story, Nora’s Sun. The rest are going slow but steady.

I’m also making changes to this website. I’ve removed my Author Feature service, mostly based on my availability. I’ll still feature books and authors, but it’ll be on my time and of my choosing. I’d rather feature books that are similar genres to my own.

Posting here has become a stress factor for me lately, mostly because I don’t know what to post. Sometimes, I’ll think of something only to scrap the idea the second I sit down to write it. I guess my brain is just too busy with other things. So I’ll continue to show off some new premade covers or a few of my personal artworks, if only to keep you mildly entertained.

So without further ado, please enjoy some of my visual arts…
