Road trip: Let’s Hit The Road With Candid!

Who is Candid?

I’d like to welcome Carole Remy today. @Carole_Remy She’s brought heroine Lucy Ralph with her to give us some advice about road trips. If you enjoy erotica you should definitely check out Lucy’s road trip and Who Is Candid? in greater detail. Over to Carole and Lucy…

Thank you for hosting me here on your wonderful blog, Shelley! I’m honored to be a guest in such great company. Lucy Ralph is here from my novel Who Is Candid? to share her tips for a great road trip.

Top Ten Tips for a Fantastic Road Trip!

Tip #10

Bring a dog, or better yet rescue a dog early in the trip. Trigger kept me company from Seattle to New Orleans. Between bee stings and blanket humping, he kept things lively in the trailer!

Tip #9

Learn to back up! The biggest challenge for me of the whole trip was backing up the trailer! Why aren’t all gas stations and restaurants pull through? Haven’t they ever seen a girl in a pickup pulling a trailer before? I mean, watch out!

Tip #8

See all the sights along the way. I stopped at Mt. Rushmore and Lewis and Clark Caverns and the Mall of America, and tons of other places. You can always find interesting people to… *wink* *wink*… talk to!

Tip #7

Explore the food in each location. The doughnuts (OMG there’s a story there… read the book!) were delicious at Mt. Rushmore.

Tip #6

Not a lot of people know about the giant rock frog on the hillside at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. It’s worth a detour. Yeah, it’s definitely worth a detour. Especially with a gorgeous hunk of a military man to show you around. Happy *Sigh*!

Tip #5

Don’t worry about bringing a lot of clothes. For one thing, you won’t need them. Sometimes. Hmm. And you can always buy a green dress in the Mall of America. Damn, that green dress got me in a lot of trouble!

Tip #4

People you meet along the way are really nice. I mean, the… you know… was fun and all, but seriously, everybody was so helpful! You can make great new friends on a road trip.

Tip #3

This was one part I got wrong. If you have a sweetie, bring him along! You wouldn’t believe how many strange exciting places there are to… have fun!

Tip #2

On second thought, ignore Tip #3. Everything worked out great for me and (okay, Carole, no spoiler!). But it did. I needed to get myself together, and that’s a huge benefit of a solo road trip. Huge!

Tip #1

Here’s the most important tip. Be open. The whole point of leaving home is to LEAVE HOME! If you try to bring home with you, what are you going to learn? Trust me, home tags along anyway. So break free, figure out who you are, and have the time of your life! Happy tripping!

I hope these tips are helpful. Have you been on a road trip lately? Did you have as much fun as I did? What are your tips for a great trip? Carole and I would love to chat with you in the comments. And buy my book, Who Is Candid?! (Okay Carole, quit poking me. I said it.)

Book Description:

Teaser Description: Lucy, aka Candid, is a naughty girl who takes a sexy fun road trip across America, and tells everybody all about it!

In the spring of 1998, recent graduate Lucy Ralph decides to rebel. The NSA is blocking her job applications, her best friend Dick is a frustrating hunk of gorgeous, and her mother is driving her crazy. Worst of all, she’s still a virgin!

Lucy takes off on a road trip across America, and reinvents herself as ‘Candid,’ a naughty girl who has sexy fun with just about everybody she meets, and tells the world all about it! Her explicit ‘Candid’ Internet posts go viral overnight. The National Security Agency, the entertainment media, the paparazzi, and soon the entire nation are on her tail! While she spins a modern day sexual Arabian Nights, she’s also being tracked by the sweet, sexy, and elusive Dick, who has his own tricks to play.

Will love ever be more than a virtual reality for Lucy? Can she and Dick get past the friends page? Will exposure ruin everything, if the nation finds out Who Is Candid?
