Saturday Inspires – Book Covers

I love book covers. Sometimes more than the book itself, in which case, I don’t read the book, but I get the image of the cover. It’s kind of like coffee. Coffee smells way better than it tastes. (I still drink plenty of coffee so it is a loose analogy)
Some of my favorite covers are my Emilie Loring books, and honestly, all Jane Austen covers are beautiful. I’m even a fan of all those silly romance covers because it’s, well, silly. Always in a state of passionate undress.

So, do you have any favorite book covers that you like more than the book itself?

Happy Saturday

Oh. My. Gosh. Yes!  I swear it took a half hour for that pot to perk the other morning. It was only 12 minutes but seriously. I NEED coffee first thing. Do not talk to me until I have at least poured a cup and I’m sitting on the couch. I cannot think without coffee. And at least two cups minimum in the morning.

So, happy Sunday. I will be having plenty of coffee this morning. Possibly while I watch In The Kitchen with David (QVC and don’t mock me. He’s hilarious)

Saturday Inspires – Men

Men. Gentlemen. Guys. I love them. I collect them, so to speak. Okay, it’s more I collect images of them. Certain actors catch my fancy when they have a specific look. I like Ben Affleck only in Argo. Hence my one image of him. Same with George Clooney… I only like him in a couple things. And this collage does not even express all the other actors and guys I like. I just had these in a file and started selecting. There is a whole host of guys I’d add if I could. Oh, and I should add, all of these guys give me inspiration for characters in books. Though most have not become a character. Only five that I can think of. Tyler Hubbard of FGL, Colin O’Donaghue, Martin Freeman, and Campbell Scott, Alexander Skarsgard, are all inspirations for characters. I have three people I actually know within this list. Two are actors; Jesse James Youngblood and John A. Lorenz, were up filming a movie called Heathens and Thieves a few years ago. I was able to meet both of them and I’m still in contact with them. Great Guys by the way. Oh and my first crush is in here too. Cal. He’s the inspiration for a character as well. But I don’t tell him that. I might make him blush. :)

So, whew. I got going. Hence the first image. Happy Saturday, dearies. Signing off Kate

Saturday Inspires – Autumn

I honestly can’t believe I didn’t do a post on Autumn when I was doing my 31 days of October. I mean, can any other time of year be quite so perfect? Don’t answer, because if you are not in the Autumn love category, I don’t want to know.  Just kidding. I happen to love all the seasons and the things that make them remarkable, I just love fall a bit more.

So here are some images that have inspired me recently (I took them so they are mine, all mine, haha! <- That’s supposed to be an evil laugh.)

Saturday Inspires – Serenity

Sometimes it’s the down time, the quiet time, the alone time, that fuels the imagination and brings a respite from life. Sometimes you just need a breather. Here I am, after typing a month of posts, which is a major event for me, typing another post. But down time is what I am yearning. It’s one of those amazing autumn days where there are clouds, cold, damp, fall colors and everything seems in its place, excluding a very, very cluttered house.  But I’m needing some serenity, and these images invoke that feeling.

So, enjoy the serenity.

Saturday Inspires – Inspirational Memes

I love finding inspirational memes online. Usually they come from Facebook and Tumblr, and I collect them in a “Quotes” file. I pull them up to send people or post here… That’s what I’ve been using for my Sunday posts this month. From sexy to writing quotes, they are just so much fun to me. I love reading them and I’d love to chalk them on the sidewalk all over town. Just think how much fun it would be to step out of your door and see some inspirational writing that can be washed away by the next rain.

So enjoy some of my favorites.

 

Okay, so that’s a lot, and I have a bunch more, but hey, maybe they will inspire you. So feel free to copy and post somewhere yourself. Because hey, I found these myself.

Be inspired this Saturday.
