Valerie Wilson Travel's Founder, Chairman & CEO, Valerie Ann Wilson Releases
Valerie Wilson's World...The Top Hotels & Resorts,
 Launches Book Tour and Supports American Heart Association's initiative -
Go Red For Women®

New York, February 6, 2012 - Valerie Ann Wilson, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Valerie Wilson Travel (VWT), one of the largest privately owned, debt free and family-managed travel consulting firms in the United States, reveals today, the Second Edition of Valerie Wilson's World...The Top Hotels & Resorts (Valerie Wilson Publications). To celebrate the company's 30th anniversary and the release of her new book, Valerie, a heart attack and bypass survivor, continues her endorsement of the American Heart Association's - Go Red For Women®. She has donated $10,000 to the program and will donate $10 per book sold during February, American Heart Month, and at specific Go Red For Women® events in 2012.

The highly anticipated, stunning book showcases her favorite, most luxurious and spectacular hotels and resorts around the world. Each property featured includes her valuable insight, lyrical descriptions and beautiful photographs, some of which Valerie took herself. From Venetian palaces to chic Hong Kong skyscrapers to overwater bungalows in the Indian Ocean, Wilson shares nearly 400 favorites in Valerie Wilson's World...The Top Hotels & Resorts. She often refers to herself as a frustrated Hotelier. In her book, she invites the reader to a bird's eye view of her personal and unique observations that only Valerie, a highly respected leading authority in the travel industry could provide.

"Travel has been a long lasting passion of mine, and nothing thrills me more than to offer clients insider access to an exceptional array of hotels and resorts," said Valerie. "Life is about taking journeys, creating memories and cherishing new experiences. I believe that a life of travel embodies all of these elements. My wish for the book is to take readers along with me, and through my eyes glimpse of some of the most beautiful places in the world." 

VWT unveiled its new campaign in honor of its 30th Anniversary, Every Legacy Has Its Journey, Every Journey Has Its Legacy, which follows its award-winning introduction of the new tag line "The Power of Access™ and Travel without Boundaries campaigns in 2010 and 2011.
