Join me at the Publishing at Sea Cruise

This is a different blog today. It has an opportunity for you and your book in a quasi-faraway place with me for a week next January.

I’m a firm believer in getting away to learn. To merge with others of “like-minded” … away from home, from the office, from everyday “noise” and I do it at least once a year.

Sometimes it’s a learning conference just for me. Sometimes, it’s a writing retreat where the phone, the staff, the doorbell, the anything that is in my normal daily routine is a distractor.

It’s why I work and escape on cruises.

  • Full care—do what I want.
  • A variety of food choices.
  • Interesting people to meet (if I choose to).
  • I can be a hermit if I want.
  • It’s got the water and sun factors I crave.

For authors, the Publishing at Sea Cruise and Workshop scheduled for January 21-28, 2023, may just be the perfect week for you—your book marketing—working on your next book—or just hanging out with other authors. We have an awesome faculty. Workshops are on at Sea Days. When in Ports, I want to discover, play, and enjoy the country and what it offers.

Details of the cruise and workshops are on the Publishing at Sea website.  Your ship is the beautiful Symphony of the Seas with Royal Caribbean—it’s a huge ship, with plenty of nooks to claim. Central Park is a personal favorite plus the Solarium … and of course, my balcony is connected to my stateroom. It works well for workshops and conferences.

You can view the interior of the ship and much more HERE.

Departure day is January 21 from the port in Miami Florida and returns on the 28th. recommended that you be in Miami the day before.

Join us! If you are interested in coming—final date to join the Publishing at Sea group is October 15. Call or text me now at 303-885-2207.
