Off on your travels? Check out Trip Fiction before you go

It’s strange how some online ideas never quite take off while others seem like naturals from the outset. The minute you hear of them you wonder why no one ever thought of that before.

There are many sites devoted to books in general and fiction in particular; hardly surprising given the task of narrowing down books you might want to read from the millions of titles that appear every year. Where does one begin?

If you’re exploring a different part of the world, either in your mind or actually going there, you could start with Trip Fiction. It’s the perfect way to prepare for any journey. Simply key in a location and it will recommend books (primarily novels) that are set in that place. You can also search by author or title to find locations where books are set.

I do have to declare an interest, for my own novel Francesca (Indonesia, Timor-Leste) is on the site, in some pretty grand company I’m pleased to say. As with Goodreads and Amazon, there’s the facility to rate titles and post reviews.

If ever a site deserves to do well, this is one.

You can order your copy of Francesca here. A trip to Indonesia is not compulsory!
