Which Travel Plot Would You Vote For?

Which one plot of these travel plots will actually appear in an Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel? The first plot: Drive from Tucson, Arizona through Las Cruces to Santa Fe. Pause awhile in Denver, Colorado. Then continue on through Cheyenne, Wyoming to Pinedale. And from there you drive to Jackson Hole, the Tetons, and Yellowstone beyond that.

Second plot: You drive from Tucson, Arizona east through El Paso and West Texas. You drive through Little Rock and Memphis straight through Tennessee and into Virginia. You drive up the Valley of Virginia and proceed east to New York City and the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. Then you take ship across the Atlantic to Southampton where you transfer to another ship and continue on to the Mediterranean. First you stop in Porto in Portugal. Next it is on to Barcelona, Spain and Port Mahon, Spain. Next is Ajaccio, Corsica to say hello to where Napoleon was born. Beyond that you go to Rome, Cagliari, Sardinia, and Gibraltar to meet the apes before returning to Southampton and then back to New York.

Plot three is sort of a combination of the two plots above. You start the plot in Tucson, Arizona and proceed up to Yellowstone and the Tetons. From there you take a cross country route through Pittsburgh to New York. You sail across the Atlantic but this time to Hamburg, Germany. You take an overnight train to Rome and return a couple days later to return via the same sea route to New York.

Ophelia Plot Begins Five Day Promotion:

Starting today on Monday, January 22 and continuing for the next five days through this Friday, Ophelia Plot will be on free promotion on Amazon Kindle. But hurry! This offer won’t be repeated anytime soon.

The teenage heroine is playing the part of Ophelia on the stage back at her high school. Suddenly when Hamlet is lamenting over her dead body, for she was supposed to have committed suicide to escape the wild Danish prince, the lid to the coffin slams shut. She does not remember anything else until she wakes up in the trunk of a car in a car repair shop in Hole, Arizona where she has never been before in her life. Worse, she cannot remember anything except a few lines from the play:

Tomorrow is St. Valentines Day
All the morning betime.
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine . . .

Those had been the lines that her character on the stage, Ophelia, had been reciting near the stream where she killed herself. At this point the heroine cannot even remember her own name, though she is dressed in diamonds and expensive clothing.

She is thrown out of the car repair shop with a wad of money in her hand and stumbles into a bar and grill where other teenage girls start picking on her because she looks so out of it. She does not know where to go next. Has she been robbed? Are thugs after her? She had better figure it all out soon or she will find herself dead.

If you enjoy Ophelia Plot you will enjoy other young adult thrillers by Dora Benley that have a romantic edge such as Silver Wolf Moon, Mary’s Gone, Latin Lessons, Rose Red, Murder on Spirit Island, and Murder in Jasper.

Dora and Edward Come To Arizona:

Yes, I assume you wear boots and a raincoat and layers of clothing underneath when you go outside for a hike in the winter time. For instance, when I lived in Charlottesville I always kept a pair of boots in the hall closet. I used them to get to the mailbox when it snowed. What I meant was the weather sounds so very unpleasant, who would want to venture outside in it? It cannot be that much fun to grope around in the rain using poles with spikes at the end. Wouldn’t you want to wait until the weather cleared up before you ventured outside for a hike?

You would like it here in Tucson right now. We are having mostly spring weather in the winter time. You would be able to scale mountains every day in the Saguaro National Park. You could even venture up on Mt. Lemmon which peaks at 9 thousand feet right in the middle of town here. With your binoculars you could see all sorts of birds. There are far more here for some reason than there are on the East Coast or in England. This is a huge birder area. When we put a finch sock outside on our patio it is gone almost instantly. Doves and quail populate the yard. We also have humming birds which are unique to North America. You don’t have them in England. Apaches had myths about the humming birds whispering in your ears. I will send you photos of the birds.

I have been corresponding with an Italian from Rome named Giovanni lately. He recently spent several months in Tucson scaling mountains. There are mountains in Italy, but he thought the ones here were better and more fun. See what I mean?

Dora and Edward take their search to hide the Lawrence maps all the way to Arizona in Armistice Plot to be published later this year. With mountains like this, they did not need to find Mt. Everest. Hitler’s spies would never find them again.
