USA Literary Road Trip: Introduction

During the month of December, Placing Literature is featuring In Leah’s Wake and my upcoming novel Until I Come Home. To celebrate I’d like to invite you to join me in a virtual literary road trip across the United States.

Every day we’ll post 2 states, featuring location submissions from authors and readers. We want to hear from you about the locations from your favourite reads that we should be featuring so we can cross the USA in style!

What we’ll do:

Every day we’ll post new states and shout out for submissions. Stop by throughout December if you have multiple states you’d like to submit for. At the end of the month we’ll share the full road trip outline and a map.

Competition

We’re offering up a US Literary map for USA/Canada residents or a UK Literary map for UK/Europe residents. Spread the word, enter the polls, submit your locations – each of these will give you a chance to win. Check back every day for repeat entries!
