Author Credits

Writers collect and build a portfolio via multiple venues. We write articles for newspapers and magazines. Perhaps we publish content on websites for ourselves and others. We submit to contests, pitch non-fiction book proposals, and self-publish. It takes massive diligence and hard work to build your place in the world of authors. Writing credits are imperative!

Travel Journals

Waiting for you to take one on a trip & fill it with your adventure memories! There are three versions of my travel journals available—one is bound to be perfect for you.

This is my first self-publishing efforts. We rack up author credits putting our good writing out into the universe. You help by buying and reviewing our work! The books include blog excerpts and the writer’s book includes thumbnail photographs of places I’ve been.
