Book Scrapbooks, My New Obsession by Lisa Mondello

Readers often ask me how I come up with my ideas for my stories. I have no problem coming up with ideas for my stories because I get them from everywhere. What I sometimes have problems with is nailing down the details of setting and the description of my hero and heroine.

I started book scrapbooking as a way to get me in the mood of writing a particular scene and to keep track of details. My book scrapbooking is much like a scrapbook you would create for your family and friends. The only difference with my scrapbook is that I don’t cut-and-paste photographs into a premade scrapbook. I usually rip out pictures from magazines, or print off pictures from the Internet, of people and places that fit the story am writing and I stick them into a manila folder.

I almost never look at my book scrapbook once I’ve torn the page and put it in the manila folder. My readers never see what I see when I’m writing the story. What fun is that? So I thought it would be cool to finally learn how to use Pinterest so I could create a board where my readers could see the world that I create the same way I do as I’m writing.

This is all new to me, so if you are an experienced Pinterest user, let me know. I need a 101. But so far I’ve had a lot of fun searching the web and pinning pictures to my boards. It’s become my new obsession. You can check out my Pinterest board for Her Dakota Man and Badland Bride at

I will be updating this Pinterest board with new photos of the McKinnon brothers. The Dakota Hearts series is growing. Check out all the Dakota Hearts books and see what readers are talking about! See this posting to learn more about Her Dakota Man.
