to be in quarantine you would like to travel and you cannot but you can make a substitute and put ideas in the notebooks, be it in order to create a story, a blog entry, or re-reflections to reread in the future and smile that we were there and no longer. When we leave we will have good automatic traveling habits.
notebook and pen:
These two items are for writing while you are in quarantine to write so you have a great look. We recommend that you have a notebook that fits in the backpack, with enough sheets and carry the pen while you are using it. the two best allies to write.
If you are alone or accompanied at home, having a travel journal is a more than recommended option, you can concentrate those elements and extract while you are at home from your trips in your future writings, be it a story, a blog entry or a newspaper broader travel, full of nuances.
You have many ideas but can’t find a common thread to form a text. When we have inspiration, all ideas come to us dropper and we are not and do not know how to put them together when creating a compact writing. don’t worry, write down what you can think of and every time the days go by, think about the inspiration put in and get out of it.
use the cell phone:
applications like google docs or the notes of our cell phone and become perfect allies of ideas while you are at home. Write them down and memorize them while you are away.
by the way, we have travel diaries while you’re at home.
It is something necessary but we did a survey on Instagram and so far it is winning. is to make reviews of travel guides along with review of destinations for traveling couples.
We have always loved to do this and that is what we will do.
I already have a travel guide that I thought was going to be great but it didn’t happen and it was the lonely planet travel guide by abu dhabi.
I will review them once.
One has a high expectation that lonely planet since the 70 writes very good things and is very tanned in the writing of travel guides.
We tell you the truth? After saying wow I am reading a lonely planet guide, you are disenchanted and don’t finish. (or the city seems too conservative for our taste)
I think it was that. What happened is that an Islamic country cannot drink alcohol on certain days (we don’t say it, the guide says) and they close almost everything in Ramadan (it’s respectable, but it’s not our style)
That’s why we got there.
You have to give lonely planet a chance to a less conservative place.
Hi. We know that travel guides have more possibilities in the Anglo-Saxon market.
We are aware of this. In Latin America, you are barely realizing the potential of the internet (we are saying about the internet, not talking about the content creator, or the travel influencers, much less who writes travel guides like us)
But we have enormous potential (in Spain they take us some way now, since 2007 – 2008)
But good. We had visibility in Spain and that was interesting.
Although we are not among the finalists, the intention is to make a good launch of the travel guide (it was a unique opportunity)
If you like the idea of having our book look for the tab of our book of the literary prize Amazon 2019.
Thank you Amazon for making it visible and we will write it in English focused on a guide of Catalonia and Barcelona for traveling couples.
We are dedicated to that and we will be dedicated to traveling couples.
In the next book fair in our city we will revolutionize everything.
By the way, we will also make hype and saucer with this travel guide for traveling couples in Catalonia and Barcelona.
And finally, we told you that we were going to review a travel guide a month, we have not finished it yet but it is good. I hope you like it.
They like the idea that your partner and you can travel to the United States (to Las Vegas and with an incredible price)
las vegas is an incredible place for couples who want to get married without so much protocol and it is also where marriages are made faster (outside that it is the city of the game and it has incredible hotels, like venetian and others equally incredible.
This is the advantage we have so that you can enjoy an incredible city in the United States.
The other news is that we will be participating in the amazon literary prize in Spanish (we still do not know for sure, we will know on Friday and we will tell you where we are, in English they are not doing it) in the so-called category of travel books with our guide of catalonia and barcelona in amazon.
If you are interested in supporting us, we will tell you what we will be doing and everything you need to help us.
from the first part we return to this phrase to return to the thread of the conversation. selling books in Colombia is like placing a vegetable stand in the willy wonka chocolate factory: very difficult.
On average, each Colombian reads 1, 4 books a year. I wish it were ours, hopefully one day. we went to the market to sell what almost nobody buys: books.
we told you that we decided to write this guide when we were in Barcelona and decided to make this guide to Catalonia and Barcelona to enjoy this beautiful place, this book was self-published. It was also not just to write it, but to diagram it, to illustrate the cover and the photos that are there.
We are dedicated to write in a platform called authors editors that is great here in Colombia and we will continue writing here.
In this post we will talk about the physical birth of the book and how we have distributed it during the time that has passed since the day of the launch.
How much does it cost to self-publish a line in Colombia?
depends on several factors among which we can consider the number of sheets, the quality of the paper, whether or not it includes photos, special paper and especially the number of copies will be printed in each edition.
After having the time and desire to write the book, it costs 800,000 plus or minus some intangibles that do not appear on the list.
That is our budget. You will have to make your own. it is so that a global, generalized idea is made.
How do we finance it?
They think that we travel a lot, they think that we are millionaires and that they have a pocket ready to print the books. (After we will write a post about how to live traveling without being millionaires)
we made it very simple, we wrote this book guide and we put it in author editors. we appear in google and in our social networks our book.
We believe in our project and we were not afraid to risk it. if we continue in an office, none of this would have happened: no trip, no travel guide, nothing. We work hard to realize our dream and the money will come at any time. and we are at this precise moment.
record of author’s work:
unlike the isbn, the copyright registration is free. however it is necessary to register the work in pdf. Once registered, your site can not be submitted to changes.
It has a duration of 15 days and books are not indispensable. it is a safeguard so that nobody reproduces to produce his book.
then we decided to make the template of 11 x 17 cm and I think it’s good. we write it and we edit it very fast. that’s why we chose this size for the library, to load it in the purse, in the wallet, in the travel briefcase or to carry it in the hand in the public transport. we also find it beautiful in our book.
even without the physical books, we started the presale very recently. that’s why we created the emotional crossing shop on Facebook and placed it on the marketplace. We launched the book with something very special but daily travel to 45,000. the price on offer, lower than it will cost at launch. the book depends on how it will arrive (it will take a few days) you will have to wait for it to have them.
We gave him a launch and a presale and the launch event.
without an editorial promoting promoting and rotating the book, writing the book is a children’s garden bought with the distribution. We have tried to reach as many people and we are just beginning. but we want to do it in an untraditional way to be known.
however, we hope to send this book to as many people as possible.
Anyway, despite how difficult it is, we can say that it can. There will be many people who want to read your book or travel guide. you will never know if it is going to be a literary success if you do not dare to write it. A closed door in a publishing house does not mean the end of your writer’s dream. when publishing the road it will be long, but it will be worth it.
We want to start making our trip first through Cartagena as well as Peru to know our place.
