Presenting Visuals: The Pinterest Storyboard Party

 After far too long of an absence from the blogosphere, I'm making a return today to participate in Elisabeth Grace Foley's blog party link-up The Pinterest Storyboard Party. This lovely party is designed for writers to be able to share their Pinterest storyboards for finished works, works-in-progress, and works still being mulled over in the backs of their brains.

Follow Hanne-col's board Lee. on Pinterest.

 First, I would like to share the board I created for my big project of last year and the first half of this year: The Letters of Lee Ames. My second completed novel, this story is near and dear to my heart. Not to mention, a thousand times better than my first completed novel. Someday in the near future, I need to set about the mountainous task of editing and rewriting.

 Follow Hanne-col's board My WWI Novel on Pinterest.

 The Point of No Return is my WWI suspense/thriller that might be better off if I stopped worrying so much about the suspense/thriller tone and just wrote it as straight historical fiction. *clears throat* Yes. I believe I'm overthinking this one far too much.

Follow Hanne-col's board great depression novel ideas on Pinterest.

 Summer in Great Depression era Texas is the setting for Finding Home. This board is quite probably my largest storyboard and I have a very definite ideas of how this one needs to come together, though its plot has a somewhat vague middle that needs sorting.

Follow Hanne-col's board The Gunfighter - a short story on Pinterest.

 The Gunfighter is a western short story bridging almost into novella length that I finished last month. I'm currently editing it as a side project. This story has become rather near and dear to my heart, especially the characters. Truthfully though, all my characters from all my stories are dear to my heart.

 A bonus feature in this event is to share a few Pinterest storyboards that you like from other authors. One of my personal favorites is Elisabeth Grace Foley's Lost Lake House, while Emily Ann Putzke's Twenty-Eight Days has me excited for that story, and I mustn't forget to mention Joy's A Love That Never Fails board and her Twelfth Caller Home board, which has just recently become a favorite. I could mention numerous others but I have to rein in at some point, so I had better stop before I really get started.

 So, what are some of your favorite Pinterest storyboards? And do visit Elisabeth Grace Foley's post and join in the writerly fun!


  1. Lots of lovely pins! Love the different historical eras of your stories. :) Thanks so much for sharing about your projects and storyboards!


  2. Thank you, Amber! I can't wait to get a look at your storyboards when I get the chance.

  3. I love all of these boards! And some of them are familiar because I've been following them for a while. :) The Great Depression one is maybe my favorite setting-wise, but I love the atmosphere you've created with the WWI and The Letters of Lee Ames boards too. I'm so glad you joined the party!

  4. Thank you, Elisabeth, for putting this party together! Pinterest storyboards are so much fun to put together and I love seeing other writer's boards.

  5. Wow, your board for "The Point of No Return" is gorgeous! The others are cool too, but I liked that one best.

  6. Why thank you, Hamlette! "The Point of No Return" is one of my favorites too.

  7. Ooooh I love all these boards!! I'm especially excited for "The Point of No Return" and "The Letters of Lee Ames." Sometimes I stalk your boards because you always have amazing pins! =)
