199 Cemeteries link round-up

199Cemeteries_1AI have a momentary breather between book events, so I wanted to collect up all the links so far for the press and guest posts I’ve been doing for 199 Cemeteries to See Before You Die.

The tour kicked off in July, when I was interviewed for the Blueprint for Living show on Australia’s ABC radio. That generated 3 pieces: the audio of the radio show, an article about cemetery tourism, and a list of the best cemeteries in the world.
