The Literary World Trip starts tomorrow and I want to extend my thanks to all the bloggers and authors who have submitted ‘stops’ for this tour! Perhaps not surprisingly, the bulk of the entries submitted cover USA or UK locations but there’s plenty to celebrate in both these great countries and it’s always a bonus to find out more about both. Nonetheless, I also more than welcome the entries that take us to other far flung places, including Japan, Australia and even Heaven!

If there’s a location you’d love to have seen featured in this trip, don’t worry! It’s highly likely that the Literary World Trip will run again in future. You can sign up to the weekly newsletter here if you’d like to be kept up to date with new posts and events on a regular basis.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these great stops from these wonderful authors and bloggers. Stop by every weekday between now and end July to find out more about the books, authors and bloggers listed below and enter the giveaway.
