Now I get to do them all at once. I will be a presenter on Catherine Yesayan’s first-ever cruise leaving out of the Long Beach Harbor on Sunday, Feb 5, sort of a pre Valentine’s love fest for writers. It also stars Jeraldine Saunders, author of the long-running (and famed!) “Love Boat” TV series starring Gavin McLeod. She will give the keynote speech and share with other writers her extensive career in publishing nonfiction self-help books.
It’s also frugal because the conference prices are quite low but you’ll also get a $35 reduction if you reserve before 9/11/11.
Here is what Catherine has to say:
“Save your stateroom for a one-of-a-kind WRITERS' RETREAT on a cruise ship to Mexican Riviera: Sunday Feb. 5-12, 2012.
