Mona Lisa smile

This recently floated across my Twitter feed, and I stopped and stared — intrigued, amused, and a little perturbed all at once. I still don’t know what I think about it. Which, I reckon, is a compliment to the artist(s).

A literary map of England

I adore this! Besides inspiring a wish to travel the length and breadth of England, it also makes me want to reread some of my longtime favorites. My only objection is that poor Jane Austen looks a little demented, and Charles Dickens seems to be gazing at her in concern.

O Russet Witch

Now that’s a book signing.

Art by Ryan Schude: "O Russet Witch!"

Actually this is an amazing photograph, “O Russet Witch,” by Ryan Schude. Inspired by a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, it was created in 2015 at the Last Bookstore in Los Angeles. More about Schude here.

Feline masterworks

Thinking about the personality-plus cat we had when I was a kid, this seems just about right.

The Wedding Dress

What a sad image! Still, it would make a wonderful illustration for an opening chapter in a romance novel, wouldn’t it? Things look bad for the heroine. But we know — for sure — that it will all end up OK. No, more than OK: it’ll be great.

Which is just one reason why I love reading (and writing!) romance.
