Here’s a sentence I never knew I would write almost four years ago when I started my blog: I’m a published author! Within this post, I will be sharing my journey to publishing a book. I will also let you know where you can buy the World of Wanderlust book!
It was back in December 2012 when I wrote my first blog post as World of Wanderlust. Back then I never could have imagined the countries I would visit and cities I would live in. Nor could I ever imagine the opportunities that would come my way from blogging.
After graduating from university and managing my blog on the side, I decided to take a gap year. Finishing university, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Sound familiar? I think we all feel that way for some time in our lives! After this revelation, I spent the entire year alone. This was highly unusual for me. I sold everything I owned and packed what I had left into one suitcase, hopped on a flight to London and the rest was history.
The World of Wanderlust Book
A little over a year ago I opened the most exciting email of all. It was an expression of interest from Penguin Random House Australia to see if I had ever thought of publishing a book. The short answer was yes! I had always dreamed of publishing a book, but never really thought it would happen.
Over the next few months, I began compiling all sorts of unseen photos, favourite blog photos, tips, tricks, and favourite stories from all over the world. I wanted this book to be a book you could pick up and jump into the pages to escape. Kind of like my blog!
The book is thus filled with inspirational photos, tips, tricks, stories and the most beautiful illustrations of my favourite cities you will EVER SEE (credit to Grace West).
Where to Buy my Book
Not to my surprise my lovely readers from around the globe are eager to learn where they can buy my book outside of Australia! Currently, the book will be published in Australia and the Netherlands, with more news to follow if other countries pick up the book for publishing!
But the good news: you can now purchase my book with global shipping. In Australia you will find the best price at Booktopia, but also find the book available at Angus & Robertson and Dymocks.
Worldwide you can purchase my book from Book Depository with free shipping worldwide!
I would like to say a huge, gracious thank you to all my readers who have been with me along this journey the past few years. Here’s to many more years and many more adventures around the world. I hope to meet so many more of you on my travels!
