I am excited to see where writers will go with tourism fiction in Alabama, in cities like Mobile, Birmingham, Hunstsville, and even smaller but beautiful storybook towns like Eufaula with it's annual Pilgrimage. I had a great time promoting the first interactive tourism novels, Blind Fate and Kirk Curnutt's Dixie Noir. Tourism fiction even applies to classic novels like F. Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise: Interactive Tourism Edition.
