Guest Post/Virtual Tour with Kindle Fire Giveaway ~ Linda Schroeder

 

 

ART AS A PLOT DEVICE

            Need something to steal, to ransom, to fake? Need modern forensic technology to solve a crime? Need a detective with guts?
            Try using art as a plot device.
             Art is a high price commodity. One of the four versions of Edvard Munch’s The Scream just sold for 120 million. And it is pastel on cardboard. Lots to think about there. So you need look no further than art if you need a writing topic.
            The Thomas Crown Affair. The Da Vinci Code. The Rembrandt Affair.  The hunter and the hunted. See what I mean?
            A question I am often asked is, “How the heck did you figure out what to write about?”  That’s an easier one to answer than, “Why the heck did you even want to write a book?” I’ll answer the easy one here by getting back to art and how I figured out what art piece to write about.
            Several years ago I enrolled in a UCSD class on how to write a mystery novel. I needed a plot, settings, characters. Piece of cake, I thought. But, no. What I knew about writing and what I needed to learn in order to write were worlds apart. I’ve studied books and language since college but studying and reading are very different from the active task of producing a story.
            For the class, I didn’t want to spend hours writing about nasty murders, blood diamonds, or weapons of slaughter. That’s the daily news. At that time I was reading David Hockney’s Secret Knowledge, his discussion of how Old Masters might have used a camera obscura to trace a subject and then paint over the tracing. A camera obscura is simply a dark(obscura) room(camera) with a small hole in one side. Light passes through the hole from outside and projects an upside down image on a wall or a canvas. A pinhole camera does that. Every camera lens does that. It’s a physics thing.
            For the class I needed to come up with an “object of desire,”  something the characters needed to protect and/or steal? So, “Aha!” Why not create an art piece showing a camera obscura? Not so easy to do. I tried thinking up a painting, then a scroll, then an etching. While I was thinking, I also was studying Chinese art and Chinese brush painting. Finally I came up with a Chinese bronze bowl with an upside-down garden carved on it.
            When I finally had the bowl, no one in my writing group could visualize it. So I had to write scenes to describe exactly how an artist had designed the bowl and how it was made into bronze. I went to foundries to see first hand how bronze is cast. That was fun. 
            Then I started putting together the whole art mystery. Several years and a lot of rewrites later I had Artists & Thieves.
            Three guesses what the original title was.

He is duty-bound to return to China an especially precious bowl which belonged to his ancestor. Mai must steal it for him. But Mai Ling is not the only one after the bowl. Four others plan to extract the bowl from a private California art collection. The rival thieves grasp and then lose the bowl until finally Mai is faced with the ultimate dilemma: save the bowl or save herself. Her duty to her grandfather gives her only one choice. Set against the vibrant backdrop of the Monterey Peninsula and peopled with quirky characters, this stylish art caper entertains on every page. Amazon Barnes & Noble

  13. Karen B says:

    I’m finding it harder to read a lot of book because the print is so small and the lines so close together – I’m sure this is an old-age thing! – and a Kindle would allow me to make the print larger. Oh, wonders of all wonders – that would be amazing!!

  14. I would love to win the Kindle Fire for my daughter’s upcoming 16th birthday this summer. Thanks

  32. Sherry S. says:

    I want a Kindle Fire because it can do so many different things.

  33. Connie Bernhardt says:

    I love to read and now I’m starting to get a little older some of these big thick books are hard to hold. It’d be so much easier with a kindle. Plus I wouldn’t have so many books around the house. They’d be neatly on my kindle fire.

  34. librarypat says:

    We travel frequently and I usually have a crate of books in the back seat of the car. It would be nice to be able to just have an e-reader. With retirement ahead and hopefully more extensive travel, I can’t bring all those books on a plane, at least not if I want to bring clothes. In addition, my netbook just died so I need something for internet access. The Kindle Fire is the perfect combination of both an e-reader and a way to check my email and my favorite blogs.

  35. Tiff Pull says:

    I have been wanting a tablet for awhile now and what better way to get one than to win it. Thank you so much.

Even when I finished a book. I hate when I am there finish a book and the doctor is still not ready for me. I have been known to read entire books in 1 day. I just love reading. :)

  57. I’d love to win a Kindle Fire for my daughter. Our house is exploding with books, and we really need to donate our inventory to clear the clutter. I like the idea of having the books on a reading device so that we are not filling our shelves. I also like the idea of “being green” and saving a couple of trees :)

  58. I’ve wanted an ereader and don’t yet have one!
