Ticket to Ride

I’ve got a ticket to ride! Next week I’ll be in Chicago for a conference. And guess how I’m getting there? By train!

I’ll be traveling on the Amtrak Cardinal line from Baltimore to Chicago -- the very setting of TRACKS, my novel in stories.

While I’m riding the line, why don’t you hop aboard too? Read and rate the second chapter of TRACKS at the link below. TRACKS already beat out more than 2,600 entries and is one of 20 semi finalists in what’s being called “American Idol” for writers.

Now, it has a good shot at making round three -- a step closer to the prize of a publishing contract with Simon and Schuster!

Since there’s plenty of room on the train, please invite friends, family, colleagues, coworkers and anyone you know who might be interested to read and rate it too.

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to register with Gather to vote. It only takes a minute.

Voting is open until April 25, so don’t miss the train. Read and rate TRACKS chapter two: A Good Beer Needs a Good Stein, today! After reading, use the gold stars between the chapter and the comments to rate on a scale of one to 10.


If you need a quick link to write down, here’s one you can use. Just visit the first story on this page for the direct link to Chapter two of TRACKS.


Enjoy the ride!
