Aspiring & Emerging Authors – January 15-21, 2017

If you are new to authoring and new to the publishing game,
this 6-day Publishing at Sea for Newbies is for you.

Two full days of intense work will, yes, have your heading spinning.

spinarrow500x399Spinning toward:

  • which publishing course is right for you
  • what pitfalls to avoid
  • what technology to use
  • how to deal with the overwhelm factors
  • and so much more.




HOT . . . We are going to CUSTOMIZE the Publishing at Sea 2017 Cruise to fit your needs.

In October, all registered participants will be surveyed — we will ask for your “wish list” … what do you need to learn and take away.

The Book Shepherd Judith Briles and Author Virtual Assistant Kelly Johnson are skilled in a variety of areas and are prepared to adapt their presentations to fit the NEEDs of the group.

You will have two solid days of class during the “at sea” cruising days.
When in Port, we want you to relax and play — that’s the vacation part.

Judith and Kelly will be available for one-on-one time throughout the cruise.
