WRITING

by jasna

About a decade ago, I decided to fund my travels by taking advantage of the writing talent that  runs in my family blood (my late grandfather Alojz Rebula wrote 60 books in his life and is regarded as one of the best Slovenian writers, my mom Alenka is also a prolific writer, her book Feeling Blessed is a national best-seller).

To date, I have published over 100 magazine articles totaling over 350 full colour pages, 94 radio shows, over 100 paid newsletters and countless blog posts. I write mainly in Slovenian, but occasionally also in Italian and English. I have been published by important titles like: Cruising World, Bolina and Vela.

While in French Polynesia me and Rick were featured in the popular Ben Fogle’s program, New Lives in the Wild (season 4, episode 4). This is an hour long documentary about our life aboard and has been shown worldwide and translated in many languages.

I have written two books so far. The first one is a how-to guide that I co-authored with Rick, titled, Get Real Get Gone. It has been one of the best-selling sailing books on Amazon for over two years now and Tom Cunliffe included it in his list of essential reading material in his book, The Complete Yachtmaster.

In 2016 I released my first book in Slovenian, called, Moj svet sredi oceana (A drop in the ocean). The release was followed by 27 interviews for national television shows, radio stations, magazines and newspapers. My book tour included over 25 book signings with an average of 100 people attending each. I even managed to make the cover of the Slovenian “Cosmo”!

The book is now also available in English under the title A Drop in the Ocean.

At the moment I am very busy working on new projects, the biggest being a new book about our sailing adventures in French Polynesia.
