I feel a bit like Steve Martin in The Jerk: “The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here!” One might think, after eighteen years and nine published Florida travel and history books, that the release of a new book would be ho-hum for me. Not the case—seeing the new book in its finished form is still a thrill. This is my third bed & breakfast/hotels guide, and while some of the historical content repeats information from the previous editions, there is quite a bit that is new. I put a lot of miles on my old Pathfinder over the last year, crisscrossing the state, visiting and photographing bed and breakfasts and renovated historic hotels. There are 140 listings—38 more than the last (2009) edition. Something else that is new: This year Pineapple Press will be producing all of their books (including Florida’s Best Bed & Breakfasts and Historic Hotels) in both print and e-book versions. In addition, I have created an online portfolio (which I will be updating regularly) of over 250 high-resolution Florida B&B and hotel images to supplement the book. Go to BruceHuntBooks.com to access the portfolio, and to find out more about Florida’s Best Bed & Breakfasts and Historic Hotels as well as my other books.
