To celebrate the release of Facing the Mountain
in Canada I'm posting some pictures of some of the origins of the story - which I'll be talking about on Cheryl Rainfield'
s blog on Monday/Tuesday. I did a similar post
when it was released as Raven's Mountain
in Australia last February - I used Polyvore.com then, which I found interesting but a bit frustrating, trying to find the right images: this time they're my own photographs of things that have sparked thoughts.
