American writer Patrick Brian Miller hopes his electronic books would encourage more visitors to local towns and attractions.

In Montgomery, Alabama USA, the Southeastern Literary Tourism Initiative aims to encourage local writers to publish their books electronically and to also include links throughout the novel in reference to places. The end product would be an interactive travel guide within a book, sometimes referred to as tourism fiction.

The initiative was started by Montgomery writer, Patrick Brian Miller. He has already published two electronic books: Blind Fate and Dixie Noir. In both e-books, readers can click through and visit attractions and historic sites, like the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Jasmine Hill Gardens, El Rey Burrito Lounge and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum.
