Getting paid to go on holiday may sound like a great lifestyle. But there's a lot of hard graft involved - particularly, breaking into this industry in the first place. Few industries have changed as rapidly as publishing, and within publishing few areas have changed as rapidly as travel publishing. This book will bring you bang up-to-date with the latest trends in blogging, social media, magazines, websites, travel guides, and travel books. It provides specific advice for each sector, on how to write and, just as importantly, how to get published.
