Picture yourself at the edge of Loire River. In the background, the stark, ancient remains of Les Greniers de César peek out from above the trees. You whip out your book. You start to read from the very spot where its writer stood three years earlier. It’s the location that the very line you are reading is set in.
If you are anything like me, that sort of book moment is best-life material. I base so much travel solely on getting to see literary locations for myself. It is no secret that my recent trip to Scotland involved a certain historical romance, Witcher filming locations, and a few Harry Potter squee moments.
So, it is with absolute book nerd-level squeeing (there I go again) that I get to take all of you on a 10-day behind-the-scenes tour of the IRL locations from Woman On The Wall, The Sibylline Chronicles Vol. 1.
This is going to be fun.
Details About the Virtual Tour
I’m going to read passages (short, I promise, no spoilers) from the book at some pretty incredible locations (you even get the chance to choose some of them). I planned a midnight tour of Fontevraud Abbey. Join me for two days in Amboise reliving the world of Marie and Aesmeh. We even a dip our toes into Volume 2 with an incredible secret location tour. We wrap it all up in Paris in late October with a very special afternoon.
