Write your book in one week

Oct 7-14 2018, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Join me in Chiang Mai to write your book. Grant yourself one week to realize that long sought-after dream. Whatever stage your book is at (half-an-idea or half-finished) you will leave Chiang Mai with a much improved or even final version.
Work -and focus- together with others who face the same challenge. Get practical tips, feedback and inspiration from someone who’s (co)authored 25 books and has helped over 400 entrepreneurs write and publish theirs.
And as a nice bonus, get a taste of life in Chiang Mai and -for those escaping the European winter- a week of sunshine… It’s the perfect ‘working vacation’… The trip is tax deductible and results are guaranteed.

Price: €750
Early bird offer: until Sept 15th: €650,- (including a one hour Thai massage!)

I came here with a great idea. I was stuck. To really turn it into reality I needed Esther. Sharp, creative and practical.”

8 days to your book

We start each day with an interactive workshop on a particular theme. This proven setup will help you get though the creation / structuring / writing / promotion / publishing process in logical steps that address everything, so you don’t have to go back and change things later.

  1. Start at the end: the back cover
  2. Outlining and structuring your book before you start writing
  3. Get your cover designed while you are writing
  4. Pro tips for the writing process
  5. Self publishing and Amazon tips
  6. Start selling your book before it’s ready
  7. Promotion and launch ideas
  8. Questions and request topics

After the workshop it’s up to you: you decide your working times, lunch break and social time. Most people stay in the central work space, because we create a wonderful ‘focus’ energy there and help each other through the creation process hick-ups.

One central space, lots of freedom

We have a central workspace with superfast internet, overlooking the pool and mountains. It is in a central location in bustling Chiang Mai (5 minutes from Maya Mall), and provides a quiet space for our daily workshops and to focus, learn and work.

Unlike like the previous 10 writing weeks (Curaçao, Austria and Mallorca), you take care of your own accommodation and food (of course, guidance is provided if needed), so you pay only for the workshops, workspace, personal guidance and group experience. This way, you can stay where you like and decide on your own menu.You can also write in one of the many coffeeshops in the area. The central workspace will provide writing inspiration, focus, good internet and there’s is always somebody to help you out when you get stuck.

Details and registration

Accommodation, food and tickets are at your own expense. Rooms in Chiang Mai can be found for as low as €15 a day or €500 a month. If you want to stay at the resort where we have the meeting room, please let me know and I can help you secure a good room. You can get a full meal for $1.50 in the food court of the mall, at the night markets or street stalls. There are also many restaurants, bars and cafe’s in the Nimman area. You can get around on foot, but some people like to rent a scooter to explore the area.

For whom? For everyone who wants to make good progress on their book in an inspiring city.

Combo deal? Combo deal? If you want to continue working on your book after the retreat, you can rent a room for a month. From Oct 23rd – Nov 1st there is an awesome productivity sprint called ‘Get Shit Done‘ which will be held in the same resort/workspace. This might be a great boost to get your final work and promo done. Let me know if you are interested and we can set you up for a ‘combo deal’…
