CETUS TALES
After leaving Gig Harbor, WA in 2009, we spent 3 winters in the Sea of Cortez then sailed to the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia up to Hawaii, then to San Francisco Bay. We're now heading down the coast on our way to La Paz.

Actually, it's not the phone-book, but Terry's new novel, Adventures Aboard S/V Casablanca.

I just received the 1st copy this afternoon -- the author''s copy -- so we could take a look and give our OK to go to print. We said "start the presses!" so it should be available to order in just a few days on Amazon.com or the publisher's website, Black Rose Writing

Be sure to come to the book signing at Gig Harbor's West Marine on October 16th -- Go to Cetus Media Works for more information.

Count me into the book club; I plugged your book. Enjoyed reading it, shared it with friends, and the cover is so lovely it sits where all can see it.
Happy Sailing!
Book Signing
Adventures Aboard Rick's Place by Terry J. Kotas
04/13/2009, Strictly Sail Boat Show

We will be going to the Strictly Sail Boat Show at Jack London Square in Oakland California April 16-19.

Terry will be doing book signings for his novel, Adventures Aboard Rick's Place, at the West Marine booth Thursday through Saturday from 12 till 2!

For those of you not familiar with his book, it's a fun travel-adventure novel about a solo sailor building a boat and then sailing off to the South Pacific. It is a fictionalized account of our experiences building and then sailing our first cruising boat, Cassiopeia.

It is a great escape novel, sure to bring a chuckle or two, and it's been enjoyed by young and old alike, sailors and landlubbers. For more information go to www.sailblogs.com/member/ricksplace/ or click on the link to the right.

The Boat Show!
01/28/2009, Seattle

It's that time of year again!
The boat show is always an exciting time for us -- a chance to browse the new products or look for good deals on things we want to purchase.
Many years I have worked the boat show at the West Marine booth and last year Terry & I took a shift at the Seven Seas Cruising Association booth -- a group we've belonged to for many many years.
This year we have the added excitement of doing book signings -- and it's been a lot of fun so far! To check out his signing schedule click here:

Rick's Place
Terry J. Kotas
06/03/2008, Ruku Ruku, Fiji

Terry's novel, Adventure's Aboard Rick's Place, has just been picked up by a publisher and should be out in print sometime next fall!
It's a "semi true" story -- he's taken our experiences building and sailing our first cruising boat and fictionalized it to make an enjoyable read centered on a solo sailor named Rick. Terry's unique humor makes it very entertaining as Rick travels across the South Pacific.
We're very happy to have Travis Johnston onboard doing the artwork and the picture above is one he has designed for the cover.
