A Picture Paints 1,000 Words

A couple weeks ago my BFF and I traveled to Denver to meet an editor from Avon. Oh, and listen to guest speaker, Julie Kenner. It’s no secret I’m usually the last to know stuff out here in the middle of cornland. I had seen these before, but never thought about making one until Julie Kenner suggested it. Buy a cheap photo, add a caption from your book! Easy-peasy. And did I mention fun? It’s entertaining looking though pics to find the perfect one, and then searching my book for the right words. These are my first two. What do you think? Did I capture the right pic/tone? Have you done this?
