It has been just over a month, since I published my book. My launch was a success. A huge thank-you to my launch team. As well, to everybody that has purchased my book.
Thank-you to everybody that left reviews. If you have not had the chance to leave a review, I'd appreciate if you could on Amazon/Goodreads. Your reviews are very important, as they help get my book in the hands of the right readers.
Promoting my book is probably one of the most difficult things of being an author, so thank-you for helping me with this through your reviews. Please feel free to share with your friends.
As an author, one of the most enjoyable things is reading your reviews - they make my day! As well, your reviews help me to understand the areas that I need to improve on & what readers enjoyed, such as the "lessons learned" section after each entry, which will be incorporated into my 2nd travel & volunteering book.
The journal entries I wrote for myself on each trip from 2017-2019. I didn't think I'd ever turn it into a travelogue book. My original journal entries did not include the lessons learned. I added the lessons learned, when I was typing out my journal entries in Jan 2021; it came to me that I should include a lessons learned section to help the entries flow a little better. I really enjoyed writing them because I was forced to think, learn & grown from each day that I experienced when travelling & volunteering. It wasn't always easy to think of a new lesson learned each day, as this is why you may find there was some repetition. With that being said, some days the lesson I learned earlier would come up again later during my trips.
If there is anything you would like to know, about my trips etc. please comment on my blog.
