Is this blog title misleading? Apologies. Frankly, I don’t know how to voyage with kids for much less than we’ve been lately spending to voyage with our kids. But I do know that the Voyaging With Kids publisher temporarily slashed the price of the Kindle edition of the book. That’s what I’m referring to.
L&L Pardey reduced the price to accommodate requests from print edition buyers for discounted eBook editions for their mobile devices. But Amazon has no purchase restrictions in place, so for three weeks beginning today, this special $9.99 price is available to anyone and everyone.
Also regarding Voyaging With Kids: SAIL Cruising Editor Charles Doane just this week posted an enthusiastic review of the book on his personal blog, Wavetrain. Check it out (and his blog is a good one to keep up with, he's smart and funny). As a co-author, it's deeply gratifying to read the sincere, positive reviews the book has received from professional editors in the industry. On top of this, the feedback each of us has received from the people we wrote the book for—cruising and looking-to-be cruising families—makes me smile, makes it all worthwhile.
Coming soon to this space, in no particular order:
- My big next-book announcement.
- An updated interview with the girls. I interviewed them both prior to heading off cruising. That was more than five years ago. It’s time to learn how they’ve changed. To learn what comments they want to make about the good and bad of their nomadic childhoods and what they hope for the future.
- I want to write a technical post about how we approach squalls at sea—about exactly what we do and especially how we go about reefing Del Viento, step-by-step. We’ve got our system down and it’s time to share.
- Almost 6 weeks into our 3-month visit with family in California, I’m feeling much of some of the same emotions I’ve heard people experience when they stop cruising and return to conventional U.S. life. It’s not all pretty. I have stuff to say.
