Writing on the Waves

MAY 11,2013 – MAY 18,2013 … SAVE THE DATES!


Whether you are an aspiring author, avid reader or simply someone with a story to tell, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn how to create and publish a bestseller, while you relax and cruise the Western Caribbean on  Royal Caribbean’s  beautiful Oasis of the Seas.

On this exciting 7 Day-7 Night voyage, you’ll attend two information-packed seminars that will explain how to get started, how to publish and how to promote. I started with nothing more than a desire to write and share my stories. Today I have ten Literary Awards, an Amazon #1 Bestselling Novel, five published books and fans as far away as Australia.

The first session will show you how to open your mind and let the stories come to you. How to watch for ideas in the everyday places and people who pass through your life. I’ll share the background on how I come up with stories and we’ll create a working list of thoughts for you to take home.

In the second session, I’ll introduce you to the exploding word of self-publishing. You will learn how to actually publish a book and an e-book in a few not-so-difficult steps.

Whether you are harboring aspirations of being America’s next new novelist, or you simply want to write your life story to pass along to you children and grandchildren, this seminar will give you the know-how to get where you’re going. Oh…and did I mention Caribbean Islands, fabulous entertainment, and food, food, food!

Availability is limited, so don’t miss out. For prices and information, or to book a stateroom, call Jan at:

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
