Now Announcing: The Final Titles of Our New Books Debuting This Spring (And A Cover Sneak Peak!)

We are so thankful to all of those who helped us to finalize the titles and covers of our two new books debuting this spring!

One of the interesting things that we noticed when reviewing the survey results was that in some cases, there wasn’t an obvious winner on one count or another, but there was a clear display of the direction people wanted to take things in.

As a result, for the covers of one of our books, we’ve taken a slight detour back to the drawing board to consider some new choices in line with what people seemed most excited about, and we have a very exciting new cover that we’re working on for that and jazzed about presenting to you very soon.

In the meantime, I’m very pleased to announce the final titles of our new books and share more about what they will cover and contain!

How to Take Ownership of Your Freelance Travel Writing Success

When I was first asked to coach other travel writers on how to meet their business goals and finally get their dreams off the ground, I spent a long time thinking about it, observing writers I knew, and taking stock of the marketplace.

The 18 months of research that led to The Six-Figure Travel Writing Road Map  actually centered very specifically on one question:

What is the difference between the writers who have normal careers as if they were in any other field, earning a great amount of money, buying houses, etc., and those that never seem to be able to crack making this into a viable, stable, long-term career?

New Year, New Books, New Prizes for You :)
