Tuesday Tales: It's Picture Time


Hello everyone. Welcome to this week's Tuesday Tales, the place where books are born. Each week, a gifted group of authors present you with a new scene from their current works in progress.

This week, we have a small sampling for you based on one of the following pictures.  Make sure to check them all and see how creative we can be!







So which image did your favorite author choose?

Have a look and see!

connections there.”
