Offline for a while…all at sea


Save or share this post for later

I bid you farewell for a while, I will be offline.  You see, from 7th to 15th July 2016, I have been invited on board a Celestyal Themed Cruise around the Eastern Aegean sea in the Mediterranean.

Greek Summer Festival Themed Cruise – Women Today.

The cruise is a three or four day itinerary, but I am fortunate enough to join it for the full 7 days.  The ‘Women Today’ themed cruise has a theatrical performance of ‘Shirley Valentine’ – the one character performance of a 1986 Liverpudlian housewife and the before and after transformation after she takes a holiday abroad in Greece (turned into a film in 1989).
It also has a jewellery making workshop, fashion show and…(wait for it…) a book presentation of Girl Gone Greek by yours truly!

Yes!  I have been asked on board to present my novel – I’m so excited!


Here is the 7 day itinerary:

Kusadasi (Turkey)
(whilst at sea – my presentation will take place!)
Cesme (Turkey)

Off the map – offline

Now then, although I’ll be visiting ports, it basically means I’ll be offline for a good while.  Internet by satellite is expensive on board and besides, it’ll be a good opportunity to have some down time and concentrate on enjoying all these different islands and ports.

And so, if you don’t see anything written by me for a few days, it’s because I’m off, promoting Girl Gone Greek and gathering new material to blog about for you all.

Aye aye Captain!

  1. Thanks Nene. Yes, it’s a great opportunity to promote Girl Gone Greek – in a Mediterranean environment (exactly where the book is set). Plus I’ve never been on a cruise as an adult – a container ship, yes (as you know)!
    Keep an eye out for my adventures – I’ll write up about them once I’m back.
