"We wanted to share some of the wonderful places we'd found along the route with our readers," Dailey said, "and the e-book made it easy for them to download the practical information to take with them when they weren't near a computer or wifi zone."
"I had no idea that a few months later Amazon would enable small publishers to print their own paperbacks,"
The authors drive parts of the highway every year in search of new hotels and attractions, and have become PCH experts. As well as answering questions sent in by their website visitors, last year they helped LA’s KABC show Eye on LA with a TV special about the Pacific Coast Highway.
Like the website itself, Pacific Coast Highway Hotels covers the whole of the coastal route along Highways 1 and 101, from San Diego, California to the Olympic Peninsula near Seattle, Washington. It includes a special section on the most popular PCH side-trip: to California's Wine Country.
The book is the only guide to the best hotels, inns, bed-and-breakfasts, and other accommodations along the Pacific Coast Highway. The new 2012 edition features over 150 of the best hotels along the PCH; 50 hotels in Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles wine country; full contact details for all hotels; a good range of choices from budget to luxury; an alphabetical and a geographical index of places; location maps in the e-book and print versions.
Pacific Coast Highway Hotels 2012 is on sale not only on the Pacific Coast Highway Travel website, but also as a paperback on Amazon, on the Kindle, the Nook, in the Apple Store, and on other e-reader devices.
