Dear everyone,

Exciting happenings at Retreats for You!

Our February retreats  will include a mini-media session, meaning that you can have the experience of being interviewed by a professional presenter. This is something that can be extremely useful for writers and authors, and you’ll be given a link to the interview, to put on your website or social media.

Debbie Flint, my new business partner, is also going to offer two retreats in March, with a self-publishing theme. Great for anyone who has a book they’d love to upload to Amazon but doesn’t know where to start, or who just needs a little guidance in the often confusing world of self publishing. More info below...

You may perhaps have noticed that Christmas is approaching and we are already looking around for the perfect Christmas tree with which to grace the halls of Retreats for You. Our December retreat will also offer traditional festive delights such as mulled wine and mince pies. I’m looking forward to seeing you all – and we’ve just had a last minute cancellation, meaning that we now have a place on this retreat, starting 5th December, for four nights. Do email or phone, if you’d like to join us.

Debbie and I would also like to introduce Wendy (see pic above!), the latest member of the Retreats for You team. We all sat around the table in the kitchen this week, having a glass or two of wine and planning our latest special events. Now over to Debbie to explain more:

"Hi all. And what a good session it was! More about Wendy below. First, thanks to everyone who has so warmly welcomed me into the Retreats for You fold since our last announcement about my coming to help out when I move nearby. We have had several suggestions about what types of retreats many of you are interested in, and whilst crafting, photography and healthy eating/exercise topics came up, many more mentioned how keen they were to learn more about self-publishing whilst staying here. Others asked whether I still did my media training they’d read about online. The result is two new themed retreats, both of which currently have spaces.

Starting 6th and 20th Feb


Both retreats are for four nights at the usual rate. SPECIAL THEME: interview experience. I will interview you – either voice-only or on camera – you can decide on the day, about your writing, and about you. Feedback on how to get the best out of being interviewed on radio or TV, what to wear, what’s expected of you. And a link of the session to take away afterwards for you to use on your website or social media. FIRST TO BOOK WILL GET SPECIAL RATE OF £30, payable at time of booking.

Starting 13th and 27th March


Both retreats are for four nights at the usual rate. SPECIAL THEME: self-publishing on Amazon. Come with your completed or nearly-completed novel which you would like to self-publish and an idea of cover. (We can put you in touch with an excellent and affordable professional cover designer if you would like it to also be published in paperback.) We will be on hand to answer questions and spend up to an hour per person, aiming for your novel to be published in ebook on Amazon by the time you leave on the Friday! Paperback advice also available. FIRST TO BOOK WILL GET ADVICE FOR FREE. Places limited and going quickly already so please get in contact now. Deposit payable at time of booking due to demand.

Finally we have a new Retreats for You team member, lovely Wendy, pictured below. Wendy lives opposite and is being drafted in to help out when Deborah takes a back seat from the day to day running of the retreats in 2017. All the things you love will still be here – hot water bottles in your bed after supper, good wine and food and home-made cakes and of course that ‘home-from-home’ touch you’ve come to know and love. An excellent host and used to catering for larger numbers, Wendy is a warm, friendly face who used to work in computing, has lived in Sheepwash for many years and knows what’s what at Retreats for You. She will be around to help out for those of you who have questions or queries or just need a cuppa in between breaks from your writing."

We look forward to hearing from you!

Love and best wishes

Deborah, Debbie and Wendy
