Attention: New "Pens on a World Map" Content!

Attention Penners!

I have another new aspect of this blog enacting this week and I need YOU! Get excited!

It’s called “Penner’s Spotlight” and it will feature fellow traveling writers. I’m looking for “Penners” to step up and get involved. I think it will be fun. All you do is pick somewhere you have traveled, whether in your state, nation-wide or internationally, and send me a picture of you at that place with perhaps some interesting scenery or landmark behind you. If you’d like, you can send the mentioned picture and another one or two pictures from this location too.

Now for the writing part…Wait! Before you get all scared because you say you're not a real travel writer, hear me out.

All you have to do is write a little blurb about where you are in the picture/s and what you were doing, what you liked, etc. It can be a few sentences or up to 300 words in length. It’s your preference, but the idea is to hear about your travels. It's a way to place your “Pen” on this World Map blog.

The “Penner’s Spotlight” will be posted every Friday. If you are interested, please send your picture/s and blurb to morganltarpley@yahoo.com. Also please add in the e-mail if you have a personal website or blog that you would like to be mentioned. I will also give a quick shout-out for your books or giveaway/contests here too (include a book cover image and brief synopsis). Just mention it all in the e-mail.

Here is the first "Penner's Spotlight" post, so you can have an idea of how it's done. I hope to see some of your "Pen" on this World Map soon! :)

God Bless & Happy Travels,

Morgan Tarpley


  1. What a sweet idea...very unique~ We have two of our three grown children who are over seas. Our son is on the MF in Sochi, Russia and daughter and family are in Shanghai on a international work assignment for three years. I'm so thankful for SKYPE, phone calls, emails and visa-renewals! :)

    1. Thanks so much, Diane! :)

      Wow...your kids are far away and I know you miss them. Have you been to visit them?

      If so, I would love to hear about it for a Penner's Spotlight. I bet there are other parents out there missing their kids who live overseas. I think it would be great to share a bit about your story. Just let me know. The directions are above.

      Have a nice day! Thanks for stopping in! :)


  2. Hi Morgan,
    I took Edie's course with you. This is GREAT! I ended up doing a Travel and Mystery blog, since I am a suspense writer. Here is a REALLY fun place I visited, which ended up playing a big part in my latest novel. It is San Galgano, where the ORIGINAL sword in the stone really happened in 1178 - a year before it ever appeared in King Author's tales. I would be glad to send a photo I took.

    1. Hi Cheryl! How interesting! I would love for you to do a guest travel post about it. Send me an email at morganltarpley@yahoo.com.

      Have a great week!
