Where has your novel gone?

I’m jealous. And I shouldn’t be, but I am.
See, my (un-published) novel gets to go all these fun places that I don’t. And I hate it. Why should she get to travel the world while I’m stuck at home. In the oft-repeated words of my 5-yr old, “It’s not fair.”
The Proper Way to Say Goodbye just got the opportunity to fly to England.
And she’s been to New Zealand.
And Indiana.
And Maine.
And New York City.
And Alaska. (It was summer then, if it’d been winter, I might not’ve been so jealous.)
And where have I been?
Not any of those places. And that sucks. (The only place my ms has been that I have visited is Chicago.)
One day I hope she’ll travel to every state in the US and all around the globe. Maybe even learn some languages other than English. Wouldn’t that cool?
So how about you. Where has your novel gone?

    Hee hee, I never thought of it this way before! My novels definitely get around a bit. They’ve been to Birmingham, UK, Scotland, and numerous places in the U.S, including Utah, Minnesota, Florida and North Carolina!

    Mine’s gone to France and Canada without me. It’s also been chilling out in London a lot recently which means it is officially cooler than I am.

    My novel(s) have seen the inside of a shoebox in my closet, or, if they’re more daring – they float about in computer land on clouds of pixels.

    Maybe someday they’ll get to visit places, too.

    That’s the beauty of stories tho, they can take you anywhere!
    Luckily for me, I’ve been blessed to see many places. Travel is the best! And so addicting. :)

    Wow. I’m jealous, too.
    I love your title by the way, have I ever mentioned that? I think it every time I read it, so maybe I’ve already told you that like ten times!

  6. You know, that’s an excellent question. Mostly stateside, I think. :)
