In addition to much higher than anticipated sales of one of my titles, I received some other great news this week:
1. I’ve been communicating with a producer (she contacted me!) and after reviewing my work, she thinks one of my titles is worth bringing to the Disney Channel. Enter much excitement and spasaming on my side.
2. Awhile back, another blogger and writer in Qatar referred me to a contact at Qatar Explorer. When I didn’t hear back for awhile, I thought, oh well. Yesterday afternoon they sent me an e-mail, asking if I would like to start reviewing spas, restaurants and bars. Yes, please! If all goes according to plan, I’ll be enjoying a day pass at a nice spa this weekend. Travel / tourism writing has always been of interest to me, and I’m hoping its a gateway to write for HotelChatter (who I approached a few months ago to write reviews). My brain works this way: travel writing = hotel writing = potential sales for Room 702.
