Easter Eggs

One of my favorite things about the Marvel studio movies (Iron Man, Thor, Captain American, The Avengers etc etc) is the clever use of Easter Eggs. If you don't know what I mean, check this:


Now, why am I talking about Marvel on my blog?

Just because it is one of the easiest and most instantly recognizable source of Easter Eggs to date, except maybe Pixar:


The reason I'm talking about this is because I've been a bit cheeky and hidden Easter Eggs into my own stories, not necessarily referring to one another (although there is a bit of that between the Daughter of Fire and Son of Rain series), but as little nods to shows that I've loved, books that have inspired me to write, or people that I wanted to give a little nod to. Not all of these are obvious, some of them were purely for fun. Maybe one day, if enough people ask, I'll point out a few. In the meantime, have fun guessing what places, names, people, or events are my own little private Easter Eggs.

If you guess right, I'll definitely give you props.

    1. Thank you :D Sometimes they're slightly serendipitous, but they are fun to include.
