In 2017, because of my travel blog writing, I was lucky enough to get the book commission for Salvador Dalí at Home. I delivered the manuscript in mid-December 2017, and the book is scheduled for release in October 2018.
Inspired by the power of what can happen from our writing online
Inspired by the power of what can happen from our writing online, we are creating a series of inspirational country travel guides. We will write a comprehensive guide and collaborate with a number of travel bloggers/writers who are contributing 500+ words about their favourite places in various countries. Additionally we are collaborating with tour guides. (Examples of some guest posts can be found further below).
Below is the first country guide, which is still a work in progress, as currently we are in the pre-launch phase.
The first guest blog appears under the Aragon section, then you will see more in the Balearic Islands, Catalonia and Madrid.
These will give you a feeling for how we are introducing our collaborators.

If you would like to take part, please follow the suggestions below but do feel free to ask any questions. All bloggers who take part will be promoted a lot on Twitter and we will also do some promotion on Facebook.Your bio will of course link back (no-follow) to your blog and social profiles.
Below you can see an example of a guest post and down the end, the way we are promoting collaborators, in terms of their bios and other links. Jessica Harding went a good few extra miles with her guest post, as it is very detailed and somewhere over 2000 words.
