Issue #45: Luxury Travel: My Story and How You Can Do It, Too
January 12, 2015
Today’s e-zine starts with some administrative items (and then it gets more interesting):
First up is about my free eBook, Get Published Now!. This is the one you receive when you sign up for this e-zine.
We’ve heard about a couple instances where people didn’t receive their download link. If you also experienced this problem, our apologies. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the eBook.
Next: Paypal. Every once in a while we hear from someone who doesn’t have a Paypal account (and doesn’t want one) but wants to make a purchase on our website. The goods news is, it’s possible to do this. Rather than explain it here, we’ll walk you through it.
Email us at email@example.com and we will be happy to show you how to bypass Paypal during the check-out process. (You'll be happy to know it's easier than you think.)
Last week I promised that I’d be sending out a separate email about my new Coaching/Consulting services. Well, I’m behind schedule.
We're ironing out a few final details and I will be sending out a separate email with coaching details this week (promise). Look for it in your Inbox around mid-week.
Featured Article:It’s a little dreary in Seattle today as I write this, and a good time to daydream about blue skies, warmer weather and living luxuriously.
This week’s topic answers the question “how did you get that great luxury assignment?”. It starts with the story of how I got started, then proceeds with advice about how you can do the same thing.
If you're wondering what it takes to land luxury assignments, I've just completed an eBook called "How to Break Into the Luxury Travel Writing Market". It's currently in editing, and due to be published by the end of January.
I'm so excited about it, I can't help but give you a sneak peek:
It has eleven chapters and is 136 pages long (unedited). It covers every aspect of luxury travel writing that you need to get these glamorous gigs including: The Many Pampered Faces of Luxury Travel writing; Where to find outlets for Luxury Travel Articles; Dreaming Up Luxury Destination Story Ideas; Finding Luxury Press Trips; How to organize Self-Guided Luxury Travel Fam Tours; Selling Your Luxury Travel Articles to Magazines; Behavior Etiquette on Luxury Travel Writing Tours; Writing about Luxury Travel Destinations; 21 Travel Websites that Publish Luxury Travel Articles; 55 Print Magazines that Publish Luxury Travel Articles.
Watch for more information about this eBook the next couple of weeks in this e-zine and on PitchTravelWrite.com.
In the meantime, the article in today's issue will get you started. Enjoy!
After returning from a luxury travel writing assignment, when I tell other writers about the trip, they always ask how I managed to do it.
