What Every Travel Writer Needs
At last, a book dedicated to those who want to write a book about their travels or their sojourns in their own territory. Covers destination travel, regional guides, food and winery guides, special audience, outdoor and recreation titles, road guides, travel memoirs and all those how-to-do-it guides about packing, airline travel and such.
Chapters include advice on how to find your category, create your boundaries and format, find your audience and your voice and build up your credentials. Another section covers travel writing tips, basic research, details of the format, types of publishing houses, and a list of publishers that accept travel manuscripts. There is also everything a self-publisher needs to get started in the field.
Now, for the first time, you can learn to write a travel book like a pro! With a minimum of hype, author Barbara Hudgins offers help to anyone who has ever dreamed of turning their travel lore into prose.
