My friend Dee Topliff corrects me on some misinformation in the vlog: Author Stephen King stayed at The Stanley Hotel (in room 217) when he wrote The Shining. The Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood in Oregon was used for all the exterior shots. Thank you, Dee! 😉
Last week I ventured into the vlog-o-sphere and gave you all a glimpse of Estes Park, CO, the setting for my debut contemporary romance novel, Wish You Were Here. Actually, the story takes place in both Colorado Springs and Estes Park … but that’s another blog post.
Today’s vlog is a brief glimpse of an Estes Park landmark: the historic Stanley Hotel. (The vlog’s just over a minute long.)
In Your Words: Have you ever had the chance to stay someplace that was featured in a book you’ve read? I’d love to hear about it! If you haven’t, what location mentioned in a novel you’ve read would you choose to visit?
