Bags are packed but before we go . . .


May 4: Tomorrow morning we leave with Stewball and head to NY for the beginning of our rally, but last evening, 6:17 (Eastern time to be exact) we had a live radio interview with Cynthia Brian. For those of you who were eating dinner, or watching World News and didn’t quite put this in the category of major world events, here is the link to World Talk Radio and our interview. Now you can download and listen whenever the mood strikes you. http://www.worldtalkradio.com/worldtalkradio/vepisode.aspx?aid=61297 If you want to listen just to our interview rather than the entire broadcast, just move the cursor to 20:17 and start with Cynthia’s introduction to us and our novel.

Tell us what you think. (We can always use positive feedback.)

If this blog doesn’t make sense to you, then it means you don’t know that in addition to participating in antique car rallies we have also written a novel, The Long Road to Paris. See what you’re missing out on?

See you on the road to Alaska,

Jan

About ejhowle23

Authors and adventurers, participated in the World Race 2011, an automobile rally from New York to Paris, crossing three continents and 14,000 land miles. Following much the same route as the setting for our debut novel, The Long Road to Paris. This blog describes our own adventures and challenges. And now you can follow our Bahamas sailing adventure that provides the setting for our second novel, Night Watch. Our rally, the African Safari Challenge, crossed five countries in South Africa in May 2014 and in 2015 we participated in the second Trans-American rally this time from Nova Scotia to San Francisco. Spring of 2016 we travelled 28 days around Australia with friends from previous rallies and in the fall participated in our most exhausting rally through Argentina, Chili and Peru- the Rally of the Incas. We were awarded the Against All Odds award. We're still not sure if this was for us or our car. Stewball never broke down and we hardly did. We will soon take on Iceland as a self-drive tour and in the fall of 2017 we will participate in the Odyssey Italia and then back to Africa for a do-over (almost) of the Africa Safari Challenge.

      Ron, I didn’t think fast enough. I should have taken a photo with Netop and our car to post on our blog. Missed photo op! I will write about him and his website. So cool. Now in NY and waiting for the other cars to get here. Most were shipped from England so will not be picked up from the port until tomorrow. The only car keeping our beetle company is a 1927 Bentley! Good company, I’d say!

    Enjoyed the interview which I listened to this morning thinking, gee, I know these people, or at least 1/2 of these people (sorry Ed, we’ve not met). Good interview! I’m all for a movie version of the story. I vaguely recall “Around the World in..” with David Niven, but of course, that was tame (and a balloon) compared to your adventures, fictional and otherwise. Looking forward to your trans America/Canada adventure and your next book. Hang in there, Stewball!

    Just off Carnival Pride in Baltimore. We saw your VW on I-95 with message concerning your book. I could not wait to get on the web for more info. Great way to advertise! Good luck!

      Kathy, you can get it onb Amazon or B&N. Available hard cover, soft cover or Kindle. Hope you enjoy the read as much as we did writing it. As you may now know, the setting is an around0-the-world car race and the featured car is a 1967 VW Beetle outwardly identical to the one we are driving now in the NY to Alaska rally. If you have read the teaser, you know it is spies, sex and secrets from WW II that comprise the story. Thanks for your comment.
