Below is an updated tourism guide for the novel Blind Fate, the first novel in the nation with an interactive tourism guide (order here from Amazon). The guide lets readers click on links to the tourism websites of the real settings that inspired the story. If readers would like to tour the locations in the novel, these links will give them all the information they need as far as directions, hours of operation, ticket prices, etc. Montgomery is a romantic city, so I hope you will take some time to browse these sites and discover all that the Capital of Dreams has to offer. Blind Fate is a Kindle exclusive and was featured in USA Today for its innovation in tourism promotion through a novel.
The main revisions are updated website addresses for the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Rosa Parks Museum, and St. Peter Church. These links will be updated in the novel at some point, but until then, this post (which is the first tourism link in the novel) will guide readers to the right places. There is an added link to the Railyard Brewing Co, which was the Brew Pub in the novel. The new restaurant is a different business but it's in the same location and still serves great draft beer! Also, Overlook Park in the novel is now Wright Brothers Park and includes a full-scale replica sculpture of the original Wright Flyer.
