International Authors’ Day

International Authors' DayBetween 14-18 July 2015, on each day, I will be making a post in celebration of International Authors’ Day, featuring reviews of works by Kenneth Grahame, J.L. Borges and Algernon Blackwood, authors whose works have been formative inspirations for me.

These posts will be made as part of a Blog Hop as can be seen and visited through the links at the bottom of each post.

Also at the bottom of each post please find the giveaway question:

Plants: how do they inspire you?

Please answer that question in the comments section. On the last day of this International Authors’ Day Blog Hop, I will randomly select a winner to receive The 23 Club, Beta 6, a free giveaway for your reading enjoyment

  1. Plants are inspiring because of their perseverance to thrive and remain beautiful even under the worst of conditions.

    Great idea for a post. Happy Hopping and thank you for visiting our site earlier.

  2. How interesting to build a body of work around an idea such as landscape. Very cool. I find myself most inspired by plants when I read novels by Alice Hoffman. Her plants and settings echo so perfectly the mood of the novels. Two of her best novels that incorporate nature are Practical Magic and The Museum of Unusual Things.

  3. Plants: how do they inspire you? They certainly stretch my brown thumb. Now that I have plumeria that is actually growing, I’m determined to keep it (and my other plants) alive! Knowing the plants provide for us as we care for them is always an inspiriting thought for me. Weeds? I don’t find them very inspiring.

  4. Creative way to celebrate IAD! How do plants inspire me? As a writer, I can think of books like “The Ruins” by Scott Smith. Plants are very versatile, in appearance and uses, and even anthropomorphizing them. 🙂 I haven’t yet written a story about a plant… something to think about. Nancy’s Blog
