allAfrica: African news and information for a global audience


Penelope‘s insight:


Are you a traveler? Even if you don’t travel to the far reaches of the world, you could write a travel book for Kindle. They are hot, and if you are an international traveler, you could piggyback off the success of HGTV’s “International Homes”. Match the books to their episodes.

People always want to know what is in different parts of the county–and the world. If you’ve traveled to a wonderful, exotic locale, write about it!

Here’s what you can do:

1) Pull out all your PICTURES – People want to SEE what you are talking about! You can easily scan in those pictures to add into your book.

2) Recreate your STORY from your pictures. If you can’t remember a lot of the details, another idea is to create a children’s book from the pics if you snapped lots of animals, flowers, trees and things that kids like.

3) Break down your travel story into a SERIES of books. You can use the same trip, but give each book a different subject, different title, but bundle them together.

Let your imagination run wild. If you are a journaler, even better! Pull out those journals and your pictures, and pore over them to recreate your story–and your book for Kindle.
