How Travel Writers Self-Publish

Ep#37: Travel Memoir Writing Inspiration (Guest: Carol Duval)

June 1, 2020

In this 20-minute show travel writer Jay Artale chats with blogger and freelance writer, Carol Duval, who house sat around the globe with her husband. She started off by blogging about her travels and adventures, and then wrote and published her first memoir, Trying Lives. We'll look at where Carol's travel bug came from and how she started house sitting, and then dive into the intricacies of writing and publishing a memoir. Here's some of the topics we discussed:

  • The impact of blogging before you start writing your book. 
  • How to use your blog to create the first draft of your book. 
  • The challenges and solutions of the blog to book approach. 

If you've been thinking about writing your own travel memoir, this conversation should inspire you to put pen to paper.
