Wanderlove-Take a Virtual Vacation

Kirsten Hubbard is one cool author! Her new book, Wanderlove, is set Central America. So what better way to celebrate a backbacking novel than taking a trip herself? So Kirsten has set off on her own trip and she's blogging all about it. Readers can also post questions for Kirsten while she's traveling and post their own photos. Take a look at the site and you'll be in the mood for a vacation!! And if you submit a photo, you can be entered into a contest to win a signed and butterfly doodled hardcover of Wanderlove!
Here's more info from the publisher:
 Kirsten Hubbard’s new book, Wanderlove, is set in Central America. But not just in one location -- in over a dozen! Wanderlove settings range from bustling capital cities to dense rainforest to tiny Mayan villages to idyllic Caribbean islands, and each is special in its own way.

Most exist in real life; all are based on real life. We’re very excited to share these amazing places with you in the novel -- and on the brand new Wanderlove-themed Tumblr site.



The site is all about favorite places: in Wanderlove and beyond, Kirsten’s places and YOUR places. That's right.
We want you to participate!
wanderlove is about celebrating our favorite places, and experiencing each other's. take a photo, or find a photo (one you’ve taken yourself & have the rights to) of your favorite place. it could be a place you’ve traveled to, long ago or recently; a special spot in your neighborhood, city or town; or even in your house or backyard. be as creative as you want. include a few sentences about why the place is special to you – why you *get* it, why it sticks in your heart. thank you!

You can also submit via email at wanderbooks (at) gmail (dot) com.

Everyone who
submits an image and response between now and March 5th (the day she gets back from Central America) will be entered to win one of threesigned, annotated and butterfly-doodled hardcovers of Wanderlove. They'll be super-special, even if you've already pre-ordered the book (and I so so so hope you have)! The giveaway will be open to anyone, anywhere in the world.

If you participate, make sure you include your name and email address (don't worry, the latter is confidential and only for use if you win).

(Kirsten will host another HUGE giveaway March 13th, at
http://kirstenhubbard.blogspot.com/ and YA Highway -- with prizes including Wanderlove art prints, bookmarks, and bracelets just like Rowan's.)

Kirsten will also be featuring all the destinations in Wanderlove, with photos she took herself over the years. She’ll cross-post her personal Wanderloveposts
here as well as Tumblr, so you can follow along on Bria's journey in either spot.

You can also ask her questions about Wanderlove, backpacking, or writing, and she’ll do her best to answer them on the site -- or in video form from Central America, where she’s currently backpacking through Central America!

Follow! Reblog! Join in! And enjoy :)

  1. Wow - what a unique idea. I honestly had no interest in Wanderlove, but this for-real-road-trip definitely just piqued my interest. Thanks for the info!
