Your Invitation to a Caribbean Cruise for Creatives

What if you had 30 minutes to pitch your book idea to me in person? At the bottom of this post, I will tell you how to sign up for this Caribbean Cruise for Creatives and automatically have your name entered into a contest to win the opportunity to pitch your book. But first, watch this video, then continue reading for details.

Randy Elrod is one of my best friends and a true “Christian creative”—someone who loves beauty, creates it, and knows the Source of it. He hosts the annual Recreate Conference, a gathering of Christian creatives, including worship leaders, book authors, recording artists, graphic artists, and bloggers. I have attended now for three years in a row and have loved the experience.

That’s why when Randy shared with me his vision to host a Caribbean cruise for Christian creatives, I got very excited. It sounded like the perfect opportunity to enjoy a week with a group of like-minded people: learning, loving, and laughing.

Best of all, I am inviting you—yes, YOU!—to come along. (More about that in a minute.)

The theme of the cruise is “The Creative Life.” In addition to Randy and his wife, Chris, I will be speaking, along with Pete Wilson and Ken Davis.

  • I will speak on “The Creative Life: How We Work”
  • Pete will be speak on “The Creative Life: How We Worship”
  • Randy and Chris will speak on “The Creative Life: How We Love”
  • Ken will speak on “The Creative Life: How We Enjoy”

In addition, the five of us will host a Q&A session on the creative life. I am especially looking forward to this session.

The cruise is scheduled for April 2–7, 2011 aboard the Celebrity Century, which is one of the best cruise ships in the world. We will be departing from Miami and stopping at Ocho Rios, Jamaica and George Town, Grand Cayman. The weather will be fantastic, the food exquisite, and the relaxation sublime. (Just watch this video above to get a taste of what this experience will be like.)

This is a great opportunity to leave the cold of winter behind, converge with other creatives, and celebrate the Master Creator.

Who is this cruise for? If you fall into one or more of the following categories, this cruise is for you:

  • Anyone who wants to experience a beautiful yet affordable getaway, whether you are creative or not;
  • Those who are professional creatives—authors, recording artists, graphic artists, dramatists, bloggers, etc.;
  • Those who want to be more creative, though perhaps not as a professional; or
  • Those who are in vocational ministry—pastors, worship leaders, arts pastors, etc.

How much does it cost? The entry-level price is only $749 per person. That price includes all taxes, tips, and the conference fee itself. (Note: your travel to Miami is not included in this price.)

All of the speakers—me included—have waived our speaking fees. One hundred percent of the conference fee ($99 of the $749) will go to benefit Kalein, a retreat center that Randy founded to inspire and mentor Christian artists.

Everyone who registers through me will receive a free copy of my two e-books, “Writing a Winning Fiction Book Proposal” and “Writing a Winning Non-Fiction Book Proposal.” In addition, your name will automatically be entered into a CONTEST to spend 30-minutes pitching me your book book idea.

If you have ever thought about publishing a book, this is YOUR CHANCE to get my personal and direct feedback. I will meet with you one-on-one for 30 minutes, listen to your book pitch, provide my initial feedback, and answer any questions you have about your idea or the publishing process.

To qualify for the free e-books and this 30-minute book pitch contest, you must register here. This will also ensure the best price and a berth on this “creative voyage.” You can register with only a $150 deposit.
