Please welcome Vona Logan to Lexchase.com today discussing the gorgeous scenery found in her Dreamspinner Press release Tats of Honor.
I just want to thank Lex for taking the time to host me on her blog today. I’m celebrating the release of my first ever Dreamspinner Press book, Tats of Honor, on Wednesday, the 15th of May and I’m super excited.
Over the last few days I’ve done a couple of other blog appearances and I was wondering what to share with you today that will be different. Tats of Honor is very special to me and several different ways. Not only does it feature an unforgettable tattoo and two strong, heartbroken men – but the book is also set in an amazing place, Queenstown, New Zealand.
This picturesque town has natural features and beauty that takes your breath away and I felt strongly that if I show the readers snapshots of this amazing part of my country, they’ll have such a better chance of identifying with the characters and settings in my book.
Many scenes from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy were filmed in and around Queenstown. So, come with me as we take a journey with Kegan and Dominic to explore this magnificent tourist town.
This is a stunning aerial view of Queenstown at night with the Remarkables Mountain Range in the backdrop and the dark depths of Lake Wakatipu displayed in all its glory. This is the view Dominic and Kegan would’ve had while they had lunch at the Skyline Restaurant at the top of the mountain.
The following picture shows the paved streets of the town in some places:
Another beautiful view of Wakatipu Basin:
The following two shots are of Glenorchy where Kegan and Dominic meet for the first time. These are also places where Lord of the Rings scenes were filmed:
Arwen ran through these waters on her white horse.
I can just imagine Frodo and his following walking along here.
Dominic and Kegan has an amazing story to tell about loss, courage, forgiveness and healing. Thank you for visiting Lex’s blog today with me here and I hope you look forward to reading these two mens’ story as much as I loved writing it.
