Shots

It’s officially been one month since I hit the road to begin interviewing Millennials for Drive All Night! I want to mark this milestone by thanking everyone who has followed or shared the blog since its inception. None of this would have happened without your interest and support.

Also – as I promised months ago – here’s an update on the state of the project. While Drive All Night has earned a lot of positive feedback from literary agencies, it has not garnered an offer of representation yet. The querying process can take months if not longer, especially for first-time authors. (If you know anyone in the biz who might be interested in the project, let’s chat.) Thankfully, I’m pushing ahead and setting up living arrangements that will allow time to write and edit all of the interviews and travel diaries into one engaging, irreverent narrative. For October, you can find me in Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood.

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite photos from the road thus far. You can ogle the rest via my Instagram page.

    WOW! what splendid photos and a great assortment too. Jorden called a few minutes ago to alert us to some scam so I got the damn thing out of my computer immediately. What beautiful photos, Miles. They got me back in a good frame of mind> Thanks and love always Mamie Happy Trails! ps It’s overcast and cool after 10 days of hot and humid so we are all in a great mood and looking forward to either a nap this afternoon or reading my book.! that’s living! On the low road that is. ox ox Mamie

    Nice shots Miles, if this writing thing doesn’t work out, there’s always the Photo game. Easy money, low hanging fruit, girls love photographers, maybe you know one who can give you some tips?
