Paris Book Writing Retreat 2024

Au Revoir Procrastination: Unleash Your Book-Writing Genius in Paris

The Book Accelerator Retreat

April 15- 20, 2024 Paris, France
Fall Dates: Sept. 16-21

Come to Paris, and we’ll get you from idea to outline in five days in our book-writing immersion.

For entrepreneurs who want to write the badass, big impact book that elevates their visibility and takes their business to the next level.

You deserve to take the time for yourself and your book.

As seen in:

“If you are looking for a professional that delivers outstanding results while maintaining friendly and caring alliance, look no further.
I highly recommend Jane and her team.”

    Mirek Kanik, Psychotherapist and Author, I am a Modern Mystic 

Being “busy” is a little lie you tell yourself, rather than admit you don’t know how to get started with your book, and rather than publish a poor-quality book, you keep putting it off.

In an expertly guided author immersion, you’ll have the time and bandwidth to brainstorm, plan and write your book.

Part writing retreat, part cultural immersion, with all the best aspects of Paris served up on a silver platter.  The retreat is designed so that you’ll be expertly guided and creatively inspired in the city that has attracted and empowered 1000’s of famous authors for centuries.

This year, elevate your vision. Write the book that’s not just a milestone, but a cornerstone in your career. Let’s make it happen.

Why Paris?

When spring comes to Paris, the humblest mortal alive must feel like she dwells in paradise.”
– Henry Miller

You’ll get to explore Paris as you have never seen her.

I consider Paris my second home, and will share with you many delights that you just won’t find in the travel guides, as well as some classic aspects and attractions.

You’ll step out of your routine and schedule, taking time for yourself and your book.

From the incredible history and architectural beauty, to the enticing way that the food is displayed, your senses will be awakened and you can’t help but be energized and inspired.

This will flow into your writing, as it has for so many successful authors before you in the City of Lights 

I created this retreat for successful, busy professionals just like you!

Rest assured, this is Not your mother’s writing retreat...

…It’s a celebration of the untamed spirit, a place where the taboo becomes the muse, and the stories hidden within you are given a voice, perhaps coaxed out by escargot and a glass of Beaujolais. And where the boundaries of writing are not just pushed but completely reimagined. Mom might clutch her pearls at the thought of such a scandalous affair.

The Book Accelerator Retreat is the place to:

  • Brainstorm your book
  • Chart your path to bestseller while creating impact
  • Plan your step-by-step roadmap
  • Start writing with total clarity

This is no ordinary writing retreat. Yes, we’ll be writing, but that’s not all!

The focus of the Book Accelerator Retreat is creating your own book blueprint.

Our proven Book Blueprint Formula is modelled on the same process used by all NYTimes and WSJ bestselling authors to develop and sell their book concept.

This method will give you total clarity on the book you are meant to write. The clarity will inspire and fuel you to get writing. And the best part is, once created, you’ll never wonder what to write… it’ll all be mapped out for you. This gives you a smoother, more fun author journey, often skipping ‘writer’s block’.

You’ll gain clarity on your publishing path, and the steps you need to go to market to ensure your success! Whether you want to go with a traditional publisher or self-publish your’

Listen in: The Power of Book Blueprints

The learning curve of writing and publishing a book can be steep and often feel intimidating. I’ve designed the retreat to demystify the process and the tools to help you move forward confidently as an author, even if it’s your first book.

“I was able to get the structure of my book right, and then to actually get it written and published. Had I not engaged Jane, I am certain I would not be a published author today."

Let’s Recap – You’ll leave the retreat with: 

  • Total clarity on your book concept: to help you move forward with confidence and make fast progress
  • Your topic professionally vetted: this means you will know there is a market for your book

  • A starting draft of your book
  • New friends and accountability partners
  • Stunning author photos with iconic Paris backgrounds
  • Memories of a lifetime

Let’s face it: the idea of writing a book has been dancing around in your head for way too long now.

You know that a book will help you create more impact, share your message more widely and help you finally elevate your position as a highly recognized, visible and sought after expert.

But… there’s the daily distractions, procrastination, overwhelm and fear that has been holding you back for months or even years.

Plus… You can’t trust your book to just anyone. You’ve worked hard to build your personal brand and reputation, and your book has to measure up. 

The solution – Our Book Accellerator Retreat!

Whether it’s discovering your book idea while sipping an espresso outside a cobbled side street cafe…

Fine-tuning your table of contents over a glass of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and rustic French cuisine…

Capturing your stunning author photos with a beautiful backdrop of Gothic architecture…

Or curling up in a cozy Parisian bookstore to write your first chapter
