Pinterest Board for Family Secrets

I love Pinterest. I don't get on it too often, though. The reason? It never ends.

This morning I arose early (early for me) and signed on to my Pinterest account for Zina Abbott Books. Five hours later, I had to force myself to shut it down.

While there, I did add some pictures to my board for my novel titled Family Secrets scheduled to be published sometime this year. I have more to add in the future, but, for now, Except for this first image which is mine, I have pinned pictures from other pinners. Not all pins pertain specifically to the experiences or Army regiment and company of my Vietnam soldier, Mike Carpenter. But, they are great for giving a feel for the country of Vietnam and what the soldiers were forced to deal with while there.


The LIFE magazine cover gives you an idea of a landing zone (LZ) like the kind Mike and his crew cut out of the jungle

 The board includes some pictures of war protestors. They played a role in his novel, also.

The Vietnam portion of the novel is set in 1967-68. Mike was there during the Tet Offensive. I searched for pictures of that battle.  The last photo on this blog post is from February 1968, the month after Tet.

These are just a sample of the images already on this board. Please sign up to follow the Family Secrets board on the Zina Abbott Books Pinterest account.

I would be thrilled if you would sign up for all my Zina Abbott boards on Pinterest. I have other novels in the works. I am collecting images that will help inspire, provide visual detail and set of tone for each of my novels. Here is the link:
