    For authors who want to up their game -

    This is a terrific opportunity for midlist authors who would love to take their work to the next level to work one-on-one with #1 New York Times bestselling authors, top acquisition editors, and prominent literary agents in a gorgeous and inspiring setting.

    Salt Cay Writers Retreat, October 20-26, Salt Cay, Bahamas.

    Full disclosure: I'm one of the organizers. My Backspace business partner and I were approached by a group with the Bahamian connection and asked to organize and run this retreat for them. It's a dirty job . . . I'll be going down next month for a site visit, and to meet with the hotel staff and the island's owner, sample a dolphin swim . . . it's a business trip, Mr. Tax Man - honest!

    Seriously, if you know of anyone who might be interested, please pass the word along - we have some amazing faculty members on board, like the Algonquin editor who worked with Sara Gruen on WATER FOR ELEPHANTS and the person who published THE HELP. All we need now are students!

    Here's my question. If I help you organize, can I come to the Bahamas?

    Haha - you know, you're not the first person to ask that!
