#UnexTex is reviewed on Less Beaten Paths today

Welcome to Day 6 of the #UnexTex Unexpected Texas Book Release Blog Tour for my quirky travel guide Unexpected Texas. My book is now on sale as a paperback and eBook on Amazon. I’m also thrilled to report that on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 my book reached #1 on the Amazon Bestsellers list for Dallas – Fort Worth Travel books!

Today, Unexpected Texas is featured on David Sumoflam Kravetz’s Less Beaten Paths blog, Sumoflam’s Story Shots Tumblr, and also Sumoflam’s Singlewide blog. I met David through Twitter, and immediately realized that he is a kindred spirit. We both love exploring offbeat and overlooked places, and are especially fond of the quirky and humorous.

David is a prolific blogger and photographer who has lived and worked all over the world, including China and Japan. He even speaks Japanese fluently and worked as a translator.

I swear, too, that David has been just about everywhere. So it was a big surprise to learn that he had not seen or heard of a few (only a few, mind you!) of the places I mention in Unexpected Texas, such as the gas station/speakeasy made of petrified wood in Glen Rose and the petrified wood motel and cafe in Decatur.

Day 6 #UnexTex Prizes

Because David and I both love road trips so much, I used that as inspiration for the prize giveaway at his stop on the #UnexTex book release blog tour. One lucky winner will receive: a paperback of Unexpected Texas, an Unexpected Texas notebook, and some really cute road trip stickers for scrapbooking.
