In this issue, Carol Drinkwater offers her top tips for travel writing, Steven Lewis explains why travel writing is the ideal genre for self-publishing and Isabel Losada tells us about the exotic locations she writes in. Ben Hatch shares his adventures in the Twittersphere – and around Britain in a Vauxhall Astra – in our new Social Media Success Story feature.

We also have lots of advice from writing coaches: Tom Evans on how to write for ereaders; and Sarah Salway, who solves your writing problems. John Purkiss takes us on an inward journey to show us how to build an authentic author brand. And if you’re struggling to find time for a holiday, Suzanne Collier helps you tackle your in-tray and restore a bit of work-life balance.

Blogging is a great way to start travel writing – or, indeed, any sort of writing. Our step-by-step tutorial shows you how to get started with the popular blogging platform WordPress. Danuta Kean considers adventures of a different kind in her analysis of why Fifty Shades of Grey is the publishing phenomenon of the moment. It’s certainly a good time to be pitching that sort of book – as our agent contributor, Sarah Such, has discovered. She shares her experience and advice on putting together a great book proposal.
