“Flying ” to Switzerland

You all know I’m not a traveller if you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time.  Interestingly enough, the same can’t be said for my books. You might remember that Bitter, Sweet was off gallivanting the globe, and now, Flying With a Broken Wing is doing the same. A Facebook friend recently posted these photos of my book travelling to Zurich, Switzerland. First this little book of mine went to Chicago now Switzerland. Me, I’m still in East Dalhousie!

This final picture was posted on the last day of 2013 with this caption. “Flying with a Broken Wing” in Engelberg, Switzerland, December 31, 2013. Laura’s newest book has had a great trip, and is now headed to Doha, Qatar!!!!

I don’t know about you, but I think this is pretty darn cool. Thanks, Sarah, for taking my book to Switzerland with you!

All these photos kind of gave me the idea of asking you all to join in. If you’d like to take a photo of my book in some location(with or without you) doesn’t have to be out of the country, or even out of the province for that matter, I’d love to post it on my blog or in my Facebook album. (Yes, I’ve created an album on my FB page just for such photos!) If you’d like to send a photo send me an email through the “Contact me” on my blog and we’ll go from there. Be creative. This could be loads of fun.

  1. What a cool idea. I love that your book is travelling around the world.


  2. That’s a great idea, Laura. Because of your book travels, I’ve thought about snapping pictures of my book in various places too. Like you, I think this idea is very cool.

    I shared your post on my new Facebook Page, one I can post anything on, not just things for Diane Lynn McGyver. You can see it here: http://www.facebook.com/dianetibert


    • Thanks, Diane! It all started out when my sister took Bitter, Sweet on a cruise with her, and things kind of grew from there. :) Glad it inspired you.


  3. I love this! I like seeing books written by people I know in libraries I visit in my travels. I think I took one of Bitter, Sweet when I visited the Canadian Children’s Book Centre in Toronto in November – I’ll try to find it.

    Certainly a different kind of book tour.😉


    • Absolutely. I heard today that copies of my book are on their way to England. Not sure I’ll get a photo, but still, it’s nice knowing ! :)


  5. What a fun idea! My cousin’s book made a photo appearance from a beach on Maui and a year later my cousin and his wife ended up taking a holiday to Maui themselves. Maybe your book’s travels will start you on some travels of your own.:)
