Join The Book Professor® for the experience of a lifetime: an all-inclusive women’s writing retreat in paradise from February 19-25, 2023.

You’ve dreamed about writing a book for years. But did you ever imagine you could do it poolside at a gorgeous villa in the Caribbean? 

Next winter, escape the cold and join The Book Professor® at La Maison Michelle in Barbados for an all-inclusive luxury writing retreat for high-achieving women. You’ll spend six relaxing days and nights strolling on the beach, kicking back by the pool, and making more progress on your book than you ever thought possible. 

You’ll return home with everything you need to become a published author, including a proven storytelling formula and a detailed BookMAP of the contents of your nonfiction book. Not to mention unforgettable memories of your time in St. James, Barbados! 

Here’s a closer look at the itinerary and benefits of this exclusive women’s writing retreat in the Caribbean. And if this rings your bells, let’s schedule a time to chat together about all the details!

Treat Yourself to a Six-Day Tropical Getaway

When was the last time you did something for yourself? High-achieving women have packed schedules and endless to-do lists, so self-care usually falls by the wayside. But you can’t write an impactful nonfiction book when your cup is empty. 

If you’re feeling drained, Barbados is the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate, so you can tackle your nonfiction book with the energy it deserves. During your six-day stay at La Maison Michelle, a premier oceanside villa and spa, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and unwind.


Rest, Reflect, and Rejuvenate

After a productive book writing session with Nancy in the morning, you’ll have the rest of the day to do as you please with zero responsibilities or stress. Lounge by the pool, soak up some sun on an afternoon Catamaran cruise, head to the beach, or go shopping in downtown St. James. 

No matter what you want to do, the accommodating staff at La Maison Michelle will arrange it and make it happen. They’re always available to ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay to the fullest, from drink refills to rides into town. All you have to do is relax and allow yourself to be pampered for a change, so you can return home refreshed and ready to finish your book!

Refuel with Delicious Sea to Table Cuisine

Your stay at La Maison Michelle also includes three delicious meals per day prepared by our talented private chef. Chef Adrian uses fresh, local ingredients to create nutritious island cuisine that will nourish your body and mind. He can accommodate any dietary preference including vegan, pegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free so you have the fuel you need to work on your manuscript. 

No vacation is complete without happy hour, which is provided at no extra charge every evening. Cool off with a top-shelf rum cocktail or mocktail after a long day of sun, sea, and sand. 

If you need to rehydrate throughout the day, La Maison Michelle has a bar and lounge where you can enjoy alcoholic beverages, refreshing smoothies, and island fruits bursting with flavor. 

Enjoy Restorative Workouts and Spa Treatments 

Start your day off on the right foot with some gentle exercise to clear your mind and get your creative juices flowing. During the retreat, you’ll enjoy a daily morning yoga class on the villa’s rooftop, which has panoramic views of Barbados’ famous Platinum Coast. 

If you’d rather exercise indoors, La Maison Michelle has a fitness room that’s fully equipped with everything you need to work up a sweat. To treat yourself after a tough workout, you can even book a stress-relieving massage or body wrap at the on-site spa. 

Speed Up the Book Writing Process 

Barbados is not only a wonderful place to vacation, but also the perfect backdrop for writing your nonfiction book. 

Creativity happens when you’re relaxed. You come up with your best ideas when you’re feeling centered and at peace. In the hectic rush of daily life, you probably don’t get many quiet moments to reflect and connect with your purpose. But in the serene, tropical paradise of Barbados, introspection comes easily. While gazing out at the pristine white sand beaches and beautiful turquoise water, you can’t help but feel inspired. 

Because Barbados is such a fertile environment for creativity, you’ll be able to hone in on the message you want to share with the world and leapfrog the book writing process. Focusing solely on your book with no distractions will enable you to create your entire BookMAP in just six days—a task that usually takes four months.  

A BookMAP is a master plan that outlines all the stories and key points you want to include in your book. It’s part of The Book Professor’s proven methodology for writing high-impact nonfiction books, which Nancy will teach you through one-on-one coaching and daily group lessons. 

Nancy will also help you identify the target audience for your book so you can position it to sell. You’ll even learn how to create other revenue-generating products using your unique story and expertise. You’ll return home with everything you need to finish your book and finally become the successful, published author you’ve always wanted to be. 

Network with Other High-Achieving Women

Sharing your story with the world can feel daunting and scary, but you won’t have to face your fears alone. You’ll have a supportive group of other high-achieving women to cheer you on throughout your book writing journey. 

Your fellow writers will give you feedback and encouragement while you work on creating your BookMAP in Barbados. After you get home, you’ll have the option of participating in a Mastermind with the same group of women you bonded with during the retreat. This Mastermind will meet regularly until your book is finished, giving you the continued guidance and structure you need to complete your manuscript. 

Get a Perfect Night’s Sleep in Your Luxurious Private Suite

After an unforgettable day in sunny Barbados, retire to the comfort and luxury of your private master suite. La Maison Michelle has seven beautifully decorated suites with standout features like ocean views, private balconies, plunge pools, hot tubs, and large ensuite bathrooms. 

Although the amenities and decor vary depending on which suite you choose, each room has its own unique charm and elegance. The Safari Suite, for example, has a fun jungle theme and a walk-in shower with exposed natural coral stone. Check out all of the amazing suites La Maison Michelle has to offer in this video

The Caribbean Awaits 

If you’ve been trying to write a book for years with little success, join The Book Professor® in Barbados to kickstart the process. Traveling to a tropical locale and breaking out of your daily routine will boost your creativity and productivity substantially. You’ll be able to outline your entire nonfiction book in just six days and return home with renewed energy and passion for your project. 

And if this rings your bells, let’s schedule a time to chat together about all the details!
