Recently, I heard a statistic that surprised me. The speaker said that from 5% to 25% of fiction readers draw/paint/sketch pictures of the characters and/or scenes from the books they read and love. Really? So many? That fascinates me.
Curious, I asked on my Facebook Page if there were any fans of my books who illustrate character or scenes from my books. Granted, Facebook showed that post to only 6% of those who follow my Page, but I did hear from one gal—Wendy Lyson—who was kind enough to send me some of her sketches based on my book, Heart of Gold. There are two drawings of Shannon, the first in her 4th of July dress. The third is of Todd and his puppy, Nugget. I love them!
Thank you, Wendy, for sharing these with me and for giving me permission to share them with others on my blog.
