Update: The winner of ANGEL BETRAYED is…Danni T!
Whenever possible, I try to set my books in locations that I’ve actually visited. This way, I can sprinkle in extra details to try and enrich the scenes. I can add smells, sights, noises–all the things that I hope will make the story really come alive for readers.
My FALLEN series is set in New Orleans, a city that I absolutely love. I visit the Big Easy often, and I knew it would be the perfect place for my fallen angels. And when I saw the cover for ANGEL BETRAYED, with the glimpse of a cemetery in the background (just like the St. Louis Cemetery that I featured in the book), well, I sure was one happy author.
Today, I thought I would share a few pictures of New Orleans with you. Many of these pictures helped to inspire scenes in ANGEL BETRAYED. Hope you enjoy them!
First up, the St. Louis Cathedral. How could this place not be inspiring? When I stare up at this cathedral, I can imagine angels swooping in….
No trip to New Orleans would be complete without a visit to one of the big cities of the dead–the St. Louis Cemetery.
And, of course, let’s not forget the voodoo…
New Orleans is definitely a city that seems to be filled with magic, and, if you go by my stories…it’s also a city full of fallen angels.
Now…how about we do a giveaway? Tell me…is there one special city that you’d love to visit? One random commenter will be picked to win a Kindle copy of ANGEL BETRAYED.
