Shoe Planters

Have you wondered why there's a high heel with flowers on the cover of  my new romantic comedy, Afterglow? It's because the main character, India has the brilliant idea of turning old shoes into shoe planters to sell for charity. For lots of reasons which I won't give away here, the shoe planter project turns out to be more than India bargained for.

Shoe planters aren't a new idea. The folks at Fun Flower Facts  say that you can make planters out of just about anything.
There is, of course, the high heel planter:

But they've also made planters of old cars, old guitars, old bicycles, and even an old piano.
