We took a trip to the Smokies for the long weekend and had a really good time. The coolest thing is that Raven's Peak is sort of set there (I intentionally didn't specify beyond 'the mountains' to keep it vague). It was the perfect vacation for the book launch!
Unfortunately, I was sick for most of the time we were there. We ended up going to a wax museum and playing a bunch of games, went to a dinner and show (Hatfields and McCoys) and went to Gatlinburg to walk around and do some shopping. There are some really neat little shops up in the mountains and it was a lot of fun (despite being super hot!)
And now back to the grind, but that's just how it goes!
