This is the Book Every Travel Writer Has Waited For! Travel writing may be an art-but putting together a guidebook is a craft! Author Barbara Hudgins offers a minimum of hype and a maximum of help for anyone who has ever dreamed of putting their travel lore into prose. Crafting the Travel Guidebook shows the reader how to find his category and his audience, how create a format, construct a framework and flow the chapters. It also offers a heaping helping of travel-writing tips and examples. Aimed at both the author looking for a publisher and those who wish to self-publish, the book covers such topics as basic research, plagiarism and copyright infringement, where to find photographs, creating sidebars, the book proposal, positioning your title and promoting your book. And best of all, there is a 15-page list of publishers, large and small, who welcome travel writers. Written by best-selling guidebook author, Barbara Hudgins, this book offers a roadmap for both the novice writer and the veteran journalist to find his way to the travel bookshelf. From the title page to the appendix and index--everything is laid out. Barbara Hudgins is best known as the original author and self-publisher of New Jersey Day Trips. This guidebook sold over 110,000 copies before she sold the rights to Rutgers University Press. She also co-authored the 10th edition put out by that press. She was the subject of a chapter in Make Money Self-Publishing by Suzanne Thomas, as an example of a successful regional author. Barbara's travel column has appeared in many newspapers in New Jersey. Her free-lance articles have been featured in such magazines as Garden State Woman, Signature, Woman's World and Foreword. The author has lived in New York, New Mexico, Hawaii and Virginia, but has made her home in New Jersey for many years. She holds a Master's degree in Library Science. A former English major in college, she began writing music, movie and theater reviews before gravitating to travel writing. Her experience as an author for a traditional publisher, as a self-publisher and as a freelance writer, positions her as a unique expert in all of these fields.
