Hi Folks! This week I spent some time discovering Pinterest…addictive, yes? I made a board for my upcoming Entangled book, A Man of Honor, which releases in a little over a week–on June 20.
If you want to check it out, it’s right here: https://www.pinterest.com/mirandaliasson/a-man-of-honor/
I usually don’t like it so much when authors show pictures of who their inspiration is for their hero. I guess I like to picture the hero in my own mind. But I realized something I didn’t even know about my own hero–that he looks a lot in my own mind like Channing Tatum! And once I found the pictures…I had to post them! Love that man 🙂
Anyway, I tried to put up some fun images of what this book is about to me…Cat’s kindergarten classroom is a colorful, fun image. In the book I poke a little fun at the colorful, stimulating artwork that often abounds in kindergarten classrooms…
And of course Preston is not above rescuing a neglected cat named Dirty Harry. Except when Cat asks what the cat’s name is, he only says Harry, thinking that at least one of them should have a chance with her. Except they both discover a surprise about the cat…
Preston, a war hero, returns with a serious leg injury, but he’s not above having a competitive athletic spirit when it comes to canoe racing. Here’s a little exchange between Preston and his rival for Cat’s affection, Brady. They are all part of Cat’s sister’s wedding party, and they’re at the lake for the day:
“So, Cat, how’s the maid of honor? All your duties fulfilled? Because if they are, maybe you’d like to go for a walk with me?” Then he turned to Preston “Pres, you wouldn’t mind if we went for a little walk together, would you? A few of us are going to have a little race later. We can walk down and see my canoe.”
Right. He was going to show her his canoe. Now he’d heard everything.
Over his dead body.
“You could come, too, Preston,” Brady said, then released an exaggerated sigh. “Oh, sorry. I forgot. I wouldn’t want to do anything to aggravate your injury.” His gaze lingered on Preston’s bum leg.
“I assure you, Brady, there’s nothing wrong with my upper body strength.” Preston couldn’t resist flexing his pecs a little. “I’d be happy to take part in a little friendly athletic competition.”
“You mean like chess, Trivial Pursuit? Those might be safer options.”
Preston grinned widely. “Funny. Where do you race to?”
“From the dock on this side across the lake and back. There’s a couple canoes down there we can use.”
“I’m up for it. Unless you’re a little frightened of some real competition. I mean, I wouldn’t want to embarrass you.”
Brady grinned. “You’re on.”
Hope you enjoy the visuals on Pinterest. As I make more teasers, I’m going to add them up there. You can check out more on A Man of Honor on the Entangled website here.
