With book titles like 'Crazy Sh*t in Asia' and 'Abroad, Broke & Busted', you know travel Author, Matt Towner's stories from afar aren't going to be like the ones you hear in Lonely Planet.
"Abroad, Broke & Busted" is a brilliant read - a book that is just perfect for all those who love a great adventure read and full of what The Sydney Morning Herald called "Oh Yes" moments!

I'm Matt Towner, Travel author, pulling together my latest book of Asian -Pacific travel short stories and I am LOOKING FOR SOME LAST MINUTE STORIES!
Have you had a holiday that went a bit sideways, a story that is funny, fascinating or wild? This latest book will capture 30 great stories, to be published by the international publishing team who just released my recent ABROAD, BROKE & BUSTED
My Publishing deadline is the first week of October.. YIKES!
I know that is not much notice to pull together 4,000-8,000 words but from my experience, having a short window gets the best writing done! So, GO ON! If you have a story and you like the idea of seeing your words and your headshot in this latest book in your local book-store. Then reach out - be great to hear from you! Let your brilliant holiday story be heard!
Email me email@example.com to send your story over.
(I will also need a 100 word bio and a headshot to put with your story too please)
Thanks everyone! Oh and.. this is just the beginning of this travel series. So, if you don't have a story about ASIA, maybe you have a tale from the U.S, Europe or further afield? Reach out if you do, as I am starting to collect those stories too!
If you are more of a READER than a writer, love you to check out my fellow writer Veronica Farmer's short inspirational human story project below... Some incredible stories of endurance and action!
