Testimonials and About Our Readers

"One of my favorite things about the Query Letters for Travel Writers eBook is the many examples of query letters that you include.  The practical approach to crafting the letter, rather than a theoretical one, is a priceless resource to successfully marketing my story ideas.  The eBook gives a unique insight into what you've done and what works, and takes the guesswork out of where to begin the process." - Melanie Lynn

"I particularly liked your sentence/paragraph starters in your Query Letters eBook.  They are helpful to structure the piece and avoid repetition.  By the way, based on your recommendations, I have sent a small travel piece to an online magazine and they have published it.  It's a start!  Thank you for sharing your expertise." - Patricia McBride
