We also shared information about our annual Publishing at Sea week on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas January 21-28, 2018. A working vacation that is an investment in your publishing and marketing education that is fully tax deductible. We shared the success of the ship wide support “author signing” that sold over 180 books of our attendees from last year—even the Captain dropped in! And, it will be done again on the 2018 cruise.
