Hard to believe but my Detour Nebraska book has been available for purchase for almost six months.  While I did keep fairly busy with book events right before Christmas, I have needed to take off the last few months due to our family’s move to an acreage.  (Yes, I am still writing to you from Nebraska – I just now have a much prettier view outside of my window!)  Now that tourism season is almost upon us, I am excited to start up promotions again.  And I am doing that in a fun way – with a Kindle Giveaway.  Disclosure: This is our giveaway and is not associated or affiliated with Amazon.  This post features multiple Nebraskan books.

One of the best parts of the book writing process has been the fact that I have not been alone on this journey.  Several of my friends have had books come out within the last several months too.  And while I have introduced you  to my friend, Kim before as well as to my friends, Tim & Lisa, I have not yet introduced you to my friend, Nicole.  While she is not a travel writer, her topics make travel easier: meal planning and budgeting.  How does meal planning make traveling easier?  Well, after a day of taking detours around the state, cooking is the last thing on my mind.  BUT, if I have thought ahead about what is for supper, cooking is a bit easier.  Anyway, here is a bit more about Nicole’s books.

Nebraskan Books 1 & 2

Local author, Nicole McDonald, shares money saving advice on her blog MomSavesMoney.net and teaches classes in the Omaha area. This year she released two new books in her popular Extraordinary Art series. Her expert advice in The Extraordinary Art of Meal Planning will help you take back family dinner while saving time and money. If you are ready to live debt free and in financial freedom, check out her third book in the series The Extraordinary Art of Budgeting.

Now here is a bit more about the two Nebraskan books featuring travel…

Nebraskan Books 3

Lost Restaurants of Omaha shares the stories and photos behind some of Omaha’s iconic restaurants that have closed. The history of famous eateries go beyond the food on the menu and dive into the families that ran them and the roles they may have played in historic moments in the city. Restaurants featured in the book include French Café, Piccolo Pete’s, Mister C’s, Ross’s and Bohemian Café, and more than two-dozen more.  Author, Kim Reiner, shares Omaha fun and activities at ohmyomaha.com.

Nebraskan Books 4

Omaha is often called the best-kept secret in the United States. Once they’ve been there, visitors tend to fall in love with the city and its people.  Referred to as the Gateway to the west, Omaha has so much to offer, from history, hiking, and an exciting local beer scene to great food. Tim and Lisa Trudell from the popular travel blog, The Walking Tourists, take you on a tour of Omaha’s unique and interesting sites. Their new book, 100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die includes some fun facts and helpful tips. Whether you are up in Omaha, call yourself an Omahan now, or are just passing through, this book will make you stop and say, “I didn’t realize that was in Omaha.”

And my book rounds out the list at Nebraskan Book 5.
