Some sights to see: Hand-painted murals, the pristine halls of Aviario Regional Hospital, a carefully restored Victorian mansion, a picture-perfect small New England town park, visions from the past laid over the future like old film, a comfortable old neighborhood diner, and of course, the otherworldly glow of magic.
Some sounds to be heard: "Walk Like an Egyptian" by the Bangles. Jazz music. Thready, tired coughing. The scrape of claws against wood. Whistling tea kettles. A child's rhyming song amid a thunderstorm.
Some scents smelled: Burnt coffee. Incense and herbs. Black tea and licorice. Old car vinyl. Ozone and damp leaves. Memory and neglect. Biscuit dough, laundry detergent, and Aqua Net. Also, this gem from Beatrice: "Don't take this the wrong way, April, but: you smell like my high school science classroom."
Some tastes or flavors shown: Coffee ... lots of coffee. Cherry Coke. The sour, dry taste of fear. Homemade blueberry pie. A leftover carton of lo mein. Plenty of comfort food ... and at least five cans of cheap iced tea.
Some touches or textures: Worn, well-used velvet. The crisp starch of a lab coat. An ancient silk comforter. The knot of fabric at the back of a blindfold. A "hug magnet" sweater. Wet, squelching mud. The near-electric jolt of a circle of power.
You'd love for your book to be made into a movie/TV show/radio drama/etc because...: I've always seen the stories of Aviario play out in my head in a very cinematic fashion. Dream casts aside, I'd love to see what production designers do with locations like The Balefires, Madie's Diner, Louise's sanctuary, or the lobby of St. Dymphna's. (Brief tangent: if you want to see some truly rich sets, watch any movie that Bo Welch has been a production designer on. I bet you'll recognize some favorites on that list.)
