I took my own advice and applied to some of the opportunities that are posted on the “Market News” section of Travel I sent a query to Duffie Books about my travel article on Edinburgh, Scotland. This was my first query to an editor. I haven’t heard anything, yet…I will keep you posted!

  1. I’m curious to know what kind of response you got with your queries to Duffie Books.

    I’m not a member of yet because I just don’t know if I can justify the cost. Do you still recommend the site?

  2. JoAnna,

    I’m not sure what happened to Duffie Books; I can’t find the site.

    I signed up for a free account with Travel and have met some people. They have job postings, a BBS area (forum), and other usueful information. I’m more active on Brave New Traveler and Matador.
