Hi! I’m Tui Snider. I’m an award-winning author, speaker, photographer, and travel blogger.
I promote regional history & offbeat travel by:

CREATING PHOTO ESSAYS & REVIEWS: I enjoy creating photo essays to promote hotels, restaurants, unique shops and live performances.
SHARING ONLINE: With a Klout score in the 70’s and over 26,0000 social media followers, I am able to offer a substantial online boost for you by sharing my photo essays online.
WRITING BOOKS: My books are another way I promote regional travel. I currently have 3 bestselling books available, with several more on the way. To learn more about my books, click here.
I’d love to promote you & your town!
Here are just a few examples of what I’ve done for others:
Let’s work together. I am open to suggestions! For instance, after brainstorming with the Granbury Visitors Center, I created a self-guided walking tour of a historic cemetery for them to offer tourists.
