Do you have amazing stories of adventure or serendipity or other excitement on the water? Do you think your tale or tales should be put in print and made available for the rest of the world to be entertained by? If so, I can make that happen!
My name is Erin M. McDermott and I'm a sailor, engineer, and author and I own a publishing company, Spire Starter LLC. I'll be in the Keys for 1 month (until 4/6/2017) and if there's enough interest, I'd love to use this time to interview boaters with stories. With any story I believe would be of interest to the public, I would then offer my authoring and publishing services for a fee and create ebooks, with distribution possible through a number of channels. I currently distribute through Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords and several libraries.
If I get enough interest to write several stories, I may also be able to publish a full-sized compilation book, and perhaps even turn it into a paper book!
If you're interested in a longer work or biography, I'd be happy to discuss those services, as well.
And if you wish for your own writing to be published, that's another possibility!
Fees will be dependent on the length and format of work, which will vary.
Please get in touch before I leave if you have interest, and I can come to meet you for a 50 cent consultation before making an agreement and hear about your story! (I wasn't able to offer a free consultation through this posting - the minimum is $0.50.)
Here is my Amazon author page:

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your tale!
