I'm so excited to share with you my first published book "What’s With Atlanta?: The Quirks, Personality, and Charm of the ATL"!

When I started my travel blog, Paige Minds The Gap, in 2013 I had no idea I would someday be publishing a guide book to Atlanta. I moved to Atlanta in 2016, and I absolutely love living here and exploring the city.

I'm doing book events all around the metro area, and you can find out about those on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/people/Whats-With-Atlanta/100094246131741/

Thanks so much for all your support!

Cheers,
Paige
