Dear Friends, Family, and Fans:
You will not be hearing from me on my blog, my email, or on social media for the next several months. From February to July 2017 I will be thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. I’m doing this for many reasons, mostly personal and spiritual, but among these reasons is a literary one. As many have done over the years, I plan to keep a handwritten journal documenting my trip. Only I want this journal to be something unique, something special, something a cut above your typical AT travelogue. I will be keeping a fictitious journal documenting my real trip in the context of a speculative fiction of my own design. If that sounds confusing, it will make much more sense when I return and polish the rough pages into a smooth, publishable book.
Here is a preview of what I have in mind: Wick: Journals and Letters of a Confederate Expat
I will be officially coming out of hiding and returning to the grid for this: Eclipse Party 2017
With Love and Respect for All,
Victor A. Davis
