Guest Post and Giveaway: Dawn Carrington Editor-in-Chief of Vinspire Publishing


Join me today in welcoming Dawn Carrington, Editor-in-Chief of Vinspire Publishing as she shares her thoughts on "Imagination."  Ms. Carrington is also hosting a giveaway, which you can enter below.  Thanks to Vinespire and Dawn Carrington for visiting today, and thanks to all of you for stopping by.  


Imagination by Dawn Carrington,
Editor-in-Chief of Vinspire Publishing

If you could step into any world you wanted, which one would it be and why? I’ve asked myself that same question, and my answer changes depending upon the day or my mood.

Though it’s an impossibility to simply change worlds, the idea is what matters. The thought of choosing which paranormal or fantasy world to exist in is tempting. Would you cross over into the world of the undead? Run with werewolves? Or perhaps you’d prefer a magical world where wizards and witches reigned.

It doesn’t matter that we can’t hop-scotch into a fictional reality. The question opens up the imagination, and, for a brief moment, a reader gets to see what journey a writer they enjoy would choose to take if he/she could.

So today, I’ll ask you the same question. If you could step into any world you want, which one would it be? What journey would you take?

Do you imagine yourself at Hogwarts? Or maybe you’d like to rent a room in Mystic Falls, Virginia where all the vampires hang out. Can you see yourself in a parallel universe? How about living a fairytale like the residents of Storybrooke, Maine do on Once Upon a Time? Of course, if you prefer the comics, there’s always Star City from Arrow or Central City from The Flash.

You’re only limited by your imagination…and imagination, by its very definition, is limitless.  I hope you see now why I ask the question. 


Everyone who comments is will be entered into a drawing for five YA books of their choice and a $5.00 Amazon Gift Card.


Congratulations to Meredith (Commenter #3) who is the winner of the giveaway.

    1. Definitely dangerous places, but I think I'd like to take my chances in Star City or Central City anyway! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love that reading can take you anywhere--not just other locations or worlds, but other times as well. And even then, not just the past, but so many different imagined futures!

    1. It's so easy to get lost in a book, especially when you can visualize the world the writer has created! Thank you for stopping by!

    1. I love Once Upon a Time, too! And I'm totally in agreement about the risks, although, there are some worlds I'd still be willing to jump into!

  5. I have always had my dreams (when I sleep) and my books to transport me to other worlds. In turn, my imagination has expanded to open infinite worlds and possibilities. I love being able to share these worlds with others - knowing I am not the only one to experience and appreciate these creative worlds makes me feel connected to the real world.

  6. This is always a hard question for me because there are just so many I love. Harry Potter's world intrigues me and I could get lost there. But I've learned to love the shifter stories the most. So I'd want to go into a shifter world; one where I could be a shifter and run with them.
