The Massachusetts Walking Tour, one of the great partnerships that have happened because of the Easy Walks book series

When you have books to sell, you need good advice. I have come across great advice in following Joan Stewart, AKA “The Publicity Hound.”


Joan Stewart, The Publicity Hound

When I heard from L.L. Bean that they wanted me to offer a workshop on Easy Walks at one of their stores, I gave Joan a heads-up about the news, and she worked with me to create this great guest blog post that tells the story of how my partnership with L.L Bean came about. In the post you’ll learn about how this, and several other great partnerships that have also occurred over the past several years. You’ll also learn about the back story of how I came to write the Easy Walks book series, news about a new book I am working on about Finding Easy Walks Wherever You Are, (now available on Amazon) along with important lessons learned. Check out our upcoming schedule of Events for opportunities to join us in person, at L.L. Bean in Mansfield, MA in June 2019, and other opportunities along the trail!

Here’s the entire story–right here
