Hero? I work at it, Marquita. Work hard. But I came close to over-doing. Your trip sounds wonderful! Take a lot of pics. Eat a lot of food. Dance every chance you get! If you have a book out by then, take some copies and advertising materials. Try to set yourself up with some book signings along the way - ahead of time when you know where you'll end up. You could write off portions of your trip. Wish I were going with you.
Aloha Marquita. I haven't been around much either, but will be more now. I put out 4 books in a year's time. Now taking a couple of years off to promote and concentrate on my painting and photography. You know, gotta play a little.
