References & Inspirations

IRON BEHIND THE VELVET


(note: 4/28 ~ I am embarrassingly behind listing my references. I do apologize. The footnotes in the chapters do list the literary inspirations, but I have so much fun stuff waiting to be posted. One day, SOON, I will catch up with all the footnotes and music. My bookmarks list is just huge with links.)

Well, Thank You! I have so much fun researching, surfing, getting lost in youtube.... I'm glad you enjoyed the links. I'll have more before the story if finished, I'm sure.

Carole, I had no idea you had put up visuals as well as poetry and music. I'm awed. Would it be terrible of me to copy your idea? What a magical insight into a writer's mind ... to see the things that move them!
