Toni Morrison once said that “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” Certainly, if I am yearning for an inspiring and immersive read about places I would like to visit – or even an entertaining recollection of places I have been – I am sure that others are as well. My goal is to gather stories from places around the globe and organize them into travel guides that will truly tell the tales of the various destinations, and not just list their dining and accommodations options. Each volume will focus upon a different location and will include photos, narratives, and advice from writers who bring their unique perspective and voice to each account.
As avid travelers ourselves, we love to be immersed in stories and narratives based on places around the globe, and the new Red Penguin Travel Tips & Tales we will be a new type of travel book, one imparting the actual flavor and spirit of the people and places around the world rather than the usual facts, hours of operation and prices that most travel guides present, all of which can all be found easily on the Internet. Lovers of travel and faraway places will have the chance to be immersed in the sights, smells, and sounds of the lands whose flavor and character you unveil through your writings. We look forward to reading your submissions and visiting the world whose portrait you reveal through your words.
These books will be in full color, so stories and photographs are both welcome!
