Novel Inspiration Pictures

On Saturday, I went into the city (Manhattan) with my sisters in law to the place that inspired my WIP. It was super fun to go back and see all the details that made me want to write the story. The coolest part, though, was realizing that the place in my novel is way cooler than the actual place :D haha.

Here are some pictures from the real place that inspired my novel :)

The door. How cool is that handle?

Chandelier above our table inside. Creeptastic and I love it!

This is actually from another place that we went to, but it has the same vibe. It's a crappy picture but that mirror was so eerie!

I wish I could have gotten more pictures, but it was really dark inside and hard to see. And, also, I don't think I was supposed to be taking pictures anyway. Heh.

Are any of your novels inspired by real places you've been to? Or even places you haven't been to? Have you had a chance to visit? It definitely helped to get me even more excited about the story, seeing the place that started it all!

Have an awesome weekend!

P.S. I'm going to St. Martin next week on vacation with The Husband! So I may not be around for a few days, but I'll try try try to get online if I can!


  1. oh man, that door is AWESOME! I'd build a whole room around it!!!

    Have so much fun in St. Martin. Lucky girl! oh and DO NOT go online! enjoy your vacation... we promise not to do anything too exciting until you get back so you don't feel like you're missing out on something, LOL

  2. Those places look super cool!

    The first part of COTF is inspired by Boston, but that's not really the good part of the story, lol, though I do like putting in little details that only Bostonians would know :)

    Have fun on vacation!!!

  3. Have fun in Saint Martin!! Those pictures are really cool. My latest WIP has a few places I've never been but I'd like to go.
