She wasn't joking. TIDAL is #26 on the list here and I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Not only for reading my books, but for being so great by making collages for my characters, sending me hilarious, screwed-up eCards and pictures of hot guys on Facebook, and for telling people about my books. You guys have made my dreams come true and you rock!
Now, I've gotten quite a few emails about why I chose to set TIDAL in Hawaii and the reason why is . . . it's really cold where I live right now. Writing about Honolulu let me escape from 30 degree weather to sand, surf, and the scent of sunblock. Plus, I've never been to Hawaii--though I've always wanted to--and it was fun to let my imagination take me somewhere new. Since it's still cold as hell here, and I'm still craving a trip to Hawaii, I thought I'd share some of my warm weather inspiration:
And a Tidal-inspired collage made by the incredible Abbie Dauenheimer:
So what about you guys? What incredible destination have you always wanted to visit?
