Lit Bit: Your Morning Papers

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on June 14, 2012 0 Comments

Have you been reading your morning papers?


Since winning the Gold Medal for Best Fiction in the Mid-Atlantic Region, Tracks has been getting some traction.


Last week, a feature appeared in the online version of The Baltimore Sun.


Then an altered version of that same story (along with a large picture) took up a full page in the Towson Times.,0,


The biggest surprise was when the Baltimore Sun’s Sunday Edition came out this past week. I made the cover of the Arts & Entertainment section! A color photo and teaser on page one, full story on page three.


Finally, the Baltimore Sun’s Read Street book blog wrote about it just this week.


Where will it end up next? Keep reading your morning papers!
