Isn't that one of the best parts of a road trip? The music that you listen to while you put on the miles? I made a playlist for each of the Rumble Strip Books as I wrote them -- Canada coast to coast, USA Off the Interstate in twenty-five states, Europe while we thought about moving there, and Benelux while we drove through Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. They are online at www.spotify.com. If you search MusicFanWriter or anyone of the Rumble Strip Books titles, you'll find the music And every time you hear a tune, an artist gets their fees! If you do listen to one of my playlists, please Like and Follow. Each list has songs from the country we were exploring, organized by the geography we were driving through -- except the U.S. list, which is organized along the lines used in the chapters in the book. It's a system all writers use all the time ...
Rumble Strip Books is a series I started in 2018. It features a travel diary about a personal journey over noteworthy roads in an interesting car. So far, four books have been published: Rumble Strip Canada 150; Rumble Strip USA Off the Interstate; Rumble Strip Europe; and Rumble Strip Benelux (And a Boat). All are available for online ordering at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound and Bookshop.
I’m excited to announce that I have a fifth book underway—Rumble Strip Legendary Road Trips. This one will be an anthology and there will be dozens of voices, not one, and dozens of destinations. I’m inviting travelers to send pieces they've written (300 to 1000 words), so if you’d like to add your story to the collection, please visit the website and take a look at the anthology submission guidelines.
If you know other writers, bloggers, travel diary keepers, or avid reviewers on the hospitality and travel sites, please share this with them so that they can sign up to receive information and updates on the progress of the book and how to submit their stories!
