Sweet Liberation, Visuals for the Reader

I’ve searched for months for images to match what I saw in my mind as I wrote Sweet Liberation. None of these are perfect, but each one speaks to me. Imagination is a wondrous, fascinating, and sometimes crazy thing. People often ask from where my stories come. I don’t know how to explain it really, other than, it’s like a movie scrolling through my mind. I “see” everything, hear, smell, taste, and even feel what each of my characters experiences. I do my best to describe the most important facets of every scene without going overboard.

What you see as you read may be totally different than what I saw, and that’s okay. So long as you enjoy what your mind conjures. Of their own accord, these images are pretty cool and each has a tale to tell. Speculate away!
