Drum roll please….brrrrrrrr………We wrote a book! But not just ANY book, we wrote Living the RV Life – Your Ultimate Guide to Life on the Road. It’s being published by Simon and Schuster, a major publishing house (through their imprint Adams Media). It’s going to be released in the fall and YES, it’s available for pre-order in paperback or Kindle. Here is a sneak peek of the cover below, which we LOVE – a drone shot that Marc captured last year while boondocking in Sedona! You can also read a little more about the book here.
You could say we’re just a LITTLE bit excited! It is an incredible honor to be asked to write “the bible” (their words) for living a mobile life of travel and adventure by such a highly respected publisher. But what we’re most excited about is how this book will be an incredibly powerful way to introduce this lifestyle that we love so much to a wider audience of people, and inspire them and show them how they can do it too! We’ll be honest, this has been an enormous project – one of EPIC proportions – and it’s not over yet.
We’re still working on editing and other things behind the scenes and learning a LOT about the process of what’s involved in writing and publishing a book through a big publishing house. We had originally planned to self-publish a book very similar to this in 2018 to coincide with the premiere of the RV Nomads movie, but when Simon and Schuster approached us in January with their request – well, we realized we would be able to produce an even higher quality book on a whole other scale, and we wouldn’t have to do all the work ourselves! It’s rare to be able to get a publishing deal these days, especially as an ‘unknown author’ so we feel extremely fortunate, are beyond grateful, and to be honest, still spinning a bit over the fast-paced chain of events these past three months!
We hope you’re (almost) as excited as we are and we look forward to sharing more developments as we are able! In the meantime, we’re here in Wellington, Texas and gearing up to kick off production of the RV Nomads movie in the next couple of weeks with dozens of our RVing friends and fellow bloggers and YouTubers, so more big and exciting times ahead! You can pre-order the book (paperback or Kindle) now through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Yippee!
Thank you SO much as always for your support and for sharing the journey with us! We simply would not be here without you, your positive vibes and your encouragement! Stay tuned for more on the book by signing up for our email newsletter, following us here at RVLove.com, YouTube, and of course, on social media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. There’s going to be a LOT of interesting updates coming over the next few weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out for them!
Love, Marc and Julie
