ABOUT AUTHOR 2.0 BALI RETREAT
I ran my first Author 2.0 retreat in May and it was hugely successful. So the question has come up, when is the next one - and the answer is November the 10th - 13th 2016. My Author 2.0 retreat is a 4 day retreat that is only open for people who have already written and published a book, who are ready to get serious about their author career ahead.
We are going to cover a lot of ground, including developing a 10 year publishing strategy. I’m going to share everything that I have done and continue to do, to help make me a bestselling author, with books translated and sold around the world for almost two decades. On top of that, this year I have several books coming out, I’m going to share some of my newest thoughts, ideas and actions for not only selling books but also leveraging yourself as an author.
If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in - watch the following video, download the brochure and check out the info below.

WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR?
I need to be really clear here - this retreat is only for people who have already published a book. It is not a writing retreat. I might do some of them later in the year, but for now, this is about building a serious business as an author.
WHERE WILL IT BE HELD?
Author 2.0 will be held at Griya Santrian at Sanur in Bali (http://www.santrian.com/griya/rooms/). This is a very relaxed beachfront venue, with all of the typical Balinese features. The rates here are affordalbe, however the nice thing about Sanur is that there are lots of hotels, all within walking distance of this one, so really the choice is entirely up to you. There are five star right down to backpacker style accommodation. My advice is that you choose somewhere on the beachfront though.
We have negotiated a special rate at the resort - $145 USD per night for a deluxe room including all taxes. The promotional code for this is ANDREW GROUPS. And it is probably best to book it directly through their reservations email address which is:
Sanur is a beautiful place to chill out. It makes the perfect back drop for a retreat like this. The theme overall will be really casual. To recover from the classes I suggest late afternoon drinks on the beach, massages and seafood grills at any of the small restaurants lining the beach.
A good friend of mine, Bree James, is going to be joining us. Bree has been publishing niched magazines in QLD for the past ten years, making her an authority on creating content, building readership, working with authors, developing campaigns and so much more. Bree is going to be sharing a pile of great information that everyone attending will find extraordinarily valuable when it comes to building their own reader communities, getting media attention, getting regular columns and much, much more. As another added bonus, Bree knows Sanur and Bali like the back of her hand so she is our “go to lady” for all things Bali.
WHAT HAVE OTHERS GOT TO SAY ABOUT THE AUTHOR 2.0 RETREAT?
The video below has some feedback from people who attended the last retreat, as well as their take on the resort, the location and pretty much everything else to do with the Author 2.0 programme.
HOW WILL THE DAYS WORK?
We will be kicking off at 8.30am every day, recapping the previous days work and setting the scene for the day ahead. We will be finishing by 4.00pm at the latest. Sanur is a great place to enjoy Bali, so we want to make sure you have some time to do exactly that. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are all catered. We will also have a welcome dinner on the Wednesday night, and we will let you know about that a litle closer to the event.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE COVERING?
Well as per usual, I’ve packed a lot into these days. I am absolutely committed to giving you all of the skills and knowledge that you are going to need to be truly successful as an author. The following schedule should give you a pretty good idea of what we will be covering.
We have 12 modules to cover over the 4 days including:
MODULE 1 - Relect on your first book.
MODULE 2 - The 10 Year Plan.
MODULE 3 - What are you going to write about?
MODULE 4 - The evolution of your author tribe.
MODULE 5 - The power of the media
MODULE 6 - Other authors are a part of your tribe.
MODULE 7 - Driving sales - locally, nationally and internationally.
MODULE 8 - Selling your books in bulk.
MODULE 9 - Is it time to look for a mainstream publisher?
MODULE 10 - Let’s go deeper on writing skills and techniques.
MODULE 11- So what questions do you have? Q&A Session.
MODULE 12 - Clarity, focus, rituals and action.
HOW MUCH DOES THE RETREAT COST?
The retreat fee is $2995.00. I’m only making room for 25 people for this event, to ensure we all get to spend some one on one time together over the 4 days (please note this does not include accommodation or airfares). And as an author, building a business around your writing, this should be a tax deductible expense for you.
It will also include a prelim webinar before we go, a comprehensive travel guide, a pile of resources and some follow up work after the retreat.
To book please follow this link, payment can be made by credit card or paypal and an invoice will automatically be issued. Once it is full, I will be closing the bookings, so don’t delay. BOOK HERE.
