November 24, 2020 – Save the Date!
We’ll be holding a Virtual Book Launch of some kind. Join our email list if you want the details the minute they’re available.
Subscribers to the email list get early notice of any news like that, chances to win free copies of the books, and other items that don’t show up on the website. I try to get this blog posted to the website within a week of sending it out to subscribers, but …

The Next Book
Since I’ve started mentioning this upcoming book on my social media and on Rumble Strip Books’ Instagram, I’ve heard from people who want to know if there will be a Volume 2 and whether they can tell me their story. I have my hands full getting this one ready (in time for the holidays!) but if it goes well, then, yes, I’d love to do another collection. Let me know if you’d like to be added to the list of possible story sources.
Sitting still for a while in Florida
The view through the windshield for the past few weeks has been mostly palm trees. After an 11,000-mile trip north, west, back east, then down south, we’ve put it in ‘park’ and settled down to work on processing all the information and experiences we took in on this socially-distancing, gatherings-avoiding trip of 2020. We hope it will grow into a book next year, but right now it’s just a lot of scribbled notes and thousands of photographs.

Excited to tell you that we’re now set up to take orders for our book about unforgettable moments on memorable road trips. Official publication date is November 24, 2020 but U.S. customers can visit the Blue Norther Bookstore online at the publisher website here to arrange for copies to be mailed the minute the book drops.
If you are thinking of ordering more than one or two copies, as holiday gifts, it would be a good idea to reserve your books, to make sure they’re sent on the 24th.
You can save ten per cent by ordering now, until. November 24th.
The book will only be available online, at the Blue Norther Bookstore. We’ve used Amazon in the past (and other Rumble Strip and WindWord Group books are still available there), but for this new one we’re going to handle the orders directly to ensure as prompt and responsive a turnaround as possible.
For Canadian, UK, Asia Pacific, Australian, European, and all other non-U.S. customers: We’ll be handling orders via email, in order to customize shipping and taxes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what books you want to order and we’ll use an invoicing method.
There! That’s enough administration. Back to the exciting part—Rumble Strip World Voices from the Road is almost ready! The book has stories from motorcycle rides in Japan and Thailand, camper van journeys through all of the U.S. national parks, a cross-country drive in a 1963 sports car, and a rock ‘n’ roll band tour on one of the coldest nights of the year.
If you are thinking of ordering in quantity because of the holiday season, please let us know as soon as possible so that we make sure the print run is big enough and we can get the books to you in time.
