Monday's Muse~Giant's Causeway

This breathtaking picture isn't something from a sci-fi or fantasy movie, it's the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and it has been my inspiration for the last week. More than a few intriguing legends surround this wonder of nature and no doubt a touch of that will make it into my novel. I'm blown away by how inspired I am by the things I'm discovering about the world we live in. I've always been a hard core fantasy person who loved new and strange worlds, places that take me away from this one. But that was before I started researching and studying the history of the world around me. Now I'm filled with inspiration for stories that take place right here on Earth. Who would have thought?

I'm thoroughly enjoying Blood Promise (click on the image to the right to check it out). It has nice creepy feel to it, is filled with vampires, secret societies, and takes place in Russia. What more could a girl ask for in October? Well okay, a few werewolves would round it out nicely but I don't expect they'll make an appearance in this novel.

As for music, my MP3 player is still on shuffle, but I did hear a rumor that Avril Lavigne has a new CD coming out soon. You can bet that will by on my new novel's playlist! On a side note, a shout out to Kari from Under The Fairty Dust who just gave Heather's Odyssey the One Lovely Blog award. Thank you Kari! Be sure to check out her blog it is fantastic!
