Next week, on the 18th of July, Painted Faces, my fifth novel launches around the world! To celebrate its release, I'll be doing a number of posts on various themes and settings from the book. We begin in the east!
|The banks of the Danube from Buda Castle|
Budapest, Hungary, on the Danube River is an inspiring place of history, intrigue, and beauty. After visiting it in 2010, I knew that it would find itself into a story. Painted Faces became that book.
Several real locations that I visited are sprinkled throughout the story.
I'll give you a sneak peek at some of the scenes, taken from my own photographs.
|Café Gerbeaud Exterior|
|Café Gerbeaud Interior|
|Delicious Cake at Café Gerbeaud|
|Inside a Private Box at the Opera House|
The Opera House sets Eszter's heart racing. Just like their author did, the Strigosi siblings see a ballet there together.
Come back tomorrow, to discover a very famous Hungarian's role in Painted Faces! He might just scare you out of your wits...
