A lot of people have been asking me where I get my pictures for the covers of my books and short stories. I spend a lot of time on Dreamstime.com in the fantasy category looking through images for my writing. I'm lucky enough to have publishers (Gypsy Shadow Publishing, SynergEbooks) that accept my own pictures. (Lyrical Press does their own covers, but they are so beautiful that I won't complain).
Sometimes I even find an image and then write the story about it! This is what happened with my short story Night Dance. Something about the image inspires a story out of me. Now, it's not every image that I see, only certain ones, like the picture above. What do you think her story is? What inspires you to write?
