As everyone who knows me is well aware, I usually neither comment on, nor do I promote books.. either by word of mouth or in this space. I prefer to keep to commentaries on the subject of the process of writing and on issues related to publishing.

What follows is NOT an exception to that rule!

What this column is about is learning the process of writing, editing and some of many arcane and obscure issues related to getting published.

An author I highly respect, Lynn Flewelling, is offering a course on writing… and to make it even more fun, the course will will be taking place on a cruise ship.

The inclusive dates are 23-30 May of 2010, so make your reservations early.

See the details at Lynn Flewelling’s home page

and don’t forget your shades, the sunscreen, your bathing suits and the Dramamine.
