My cousin and I recently spent a couple of fun days in Memphis. My first visit to the city was back in the nineties when I spoke at the conference of the local romance writers group. The publicist from Kensington Books, my publisher at the time, was also there. I remember her because we went on the Graceland tour together. If you haven’t been to Graceland, the home of Elvis, you have to go. Not only will you get to see his Grammy awards, you’ll also get to experience his room with the fur-covered walls!
My cousin and I stayed at the Sleep Inn at Court Square, which turned out to be the perfect location. I really wasn’t expecting much from the hotel so I was pleasantly surprised. We had a two-room suite on the second floor. The suite had upscale furnishings, a living room, a bedroom, two bathrooms, two televisions, a microwave and a refrigerator. The décor was really appealing. I will definitely be staying there again. I’ve already told my husband that we have to go back.
So what do you think of Beale Street and Memphis? What are your favorite books set in Memphis?
