USA Literary Road Trip: Virginia and Washington DC

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 up to 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!

Submit your Road Trip entries here and follow the Twitter buzz here.

Our second stop today sees us following in the footsteps of Robin Murphy’s characters again, this time with a location from Federal City’s Secret, the Masonic Temple in Washington DC.
