Liz and Nan Hit the Road

This is necessarily a short post today because Liz and I are on the road for our annual writing trip. This year, we decided to stick closer to home, so it's Madison, Indiana for our retreat. We actually booked rooms at Clifty Falls State Park way back in the early summer, but a couple of weeks ago, they called and canceled us because they're doing maintenance on the lodge. Kinda bummed us out, but intrepid as always, we soldiered on and found a new place to stay. It's an old hotel in Madison that is under new ownership and has recently been renovated--The Riverboat Inn and Suites. Nice folks and very accommodating on the phone, so I'm anxious to see how this one goes.

Here are a couple of pictures of the inn--the view of the Ohio is amazing, right? We're kind of excited about trying a new place and I confess, a little bit wary of trying a new place. But there will be wine and writing and food and writing and wine and exploring and writing and wine...oh, and did I mention wine?

We're planning to hit a few wineries on the way down and while we're in Madison--strictly for research, of course. My new series for Tule Publishing (YAY!!) takes place at a family winery in the southern Indiana hills just above the the Ohio River. My fictional town of River's Edge looks a lot like the river towns we all know and love down there. Exploring will be treat!

Although we won't be reporting here from the road this time, I'll blog our adventures on my website: www.nanreinhardt.com, so you can follow us there if you're curious. I'm pretty sure it will look a lot like the above shot of Liz from last year's Michigan retreat. Also watch our FB pages because you know, pictures will probably show up there, too.

Have a great Tuesday, everyone! 


  1. That second picture reminds me of Kellerman's from Dirty Dancing. :) Any hot guy dancer sightings???

  2. Have a great time, ladies. Hope you get a ton of writing done on your new series, Nan!
