Deze workshop is verplaatst naar 2018: de nieuwe datum volgt nog. Mocht je geinteresseerd zijn, stuur me een e-mail zodat we een datum kunnen prikken die jou goed uitkomt.


Schrijf, publiceer en verkoop je boek in 1 week

De meeste ondernemers dromen van het schrijven van een boek, maar hebben geen tijd of weten niet waar ze moeten beginnen. Of ze hebben moeite een onderwerp te kiezen. En hoe schrijf je een boek dat anderen ook echt willen lezen?

Geef jezelf deze magische week cadeau, met deskundig begeleide creatieve productie en laat die langgevraagde droom uitkomen. Het maakt niet uit in welk stadium je boek is in (blanco pagina of rommelig manuscript), je verlaat na een week het zonnige Mallorca met een verbeterde versie of zelfs een kant-en-klaar boek.

Met Esther Jacobs, auteur van 22 boeken (‘Hoe schrijf je je boek in een week’ en ‘Wat is je excuus?’) en Derek Murphy, bestseller van ‘Guerrilla Publishing’.

De dagelijkse workshops worden in het Engels gehouden, met ruimte voor persoonlijke begeleiding in het Nederlands.

Bestseller Bootcamp retreat: 2018, Mallorca

During the Bootcamp retreat you’ll overcome common writing and publishing challenges together with a small group of determined participants. The energy and inspiration is guaranteed to be contagious, and you’ll be getting intimate, personalized feedback and support from bestselling authors who’ve been through the trenches. All that, along with a taste of your ideal lifestyle – working on projects you’re passionate about, while enjoying life on an island and a week of sun…

Our dream location on Mallorca

Our private villa is just 30 minutes from the airport. We’ll be staying in the village of Sineu, in the heart of the island. The beach, mountains, the fun city of Palma and other sites are never more than a 30-minute drive away. Get away from it all, and have your every need taken care of as you focus on (finally) making significant progress on your book while experiencing this wonderfully fascinating island.

Just like Esther’s 9 previous, successful writing weeks (in Curaçao, Austria and Mallorca), the group will be small (max 10-15 people), so that there is enough personal attention for everyone. Each participant will have his or her own room where you can retreat if you have some writing inspiration, or if the communal spaces are just too much fun… You can also write in the wonderful garden, under the fruit trees, next to the pool, on one of the terraces in the village, or in one of the cosy corners of the old house. If you are stuck or need some feedback, there’s always someone to read and think along with you.


We start each day with a workshop about a particular theme, such as writing your book publishing, or promotion. Here’s the schedule of topics.

  • How to write a book others want to read
  • How to actually write your book in one week
  • Keyword, category and competition research (position your book for sales)
  • Book design, publishing and distribution
  • Launching your book to #1 (and keeping it there)


Breakfast and one other meal (lunch or dinner) will be provided at the house so that you can continue working without interruption. The other meal (mostly dinner) will be integrated with an activity, such as a walk, excursion or beach time. Thanks to this combination you get both a lot of time to write, and a good impression of the island. It’s the perfect ‘working vacation’…

“Great for entrepreneurs who cannot find the time to focus in everyday chaos.”
Jolanda Wicherson, ondernemer
