This could be the start of a beautiful relationship!
I invite you to join me for a Historical Romance Virtual Intensive! Four Saturdays, three hours a day, to plan, draft, or polish your historical romance—with a select group of fellow authors, hot-seat coaching, and plenty of camaraderie!
First, a FREE download! Your Historical Romance Research Worksheet.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes just making the time and brain space to dig into a project is the biggest challenge of all.
So I’ve created an intensive, guided experience to nudge you along from wherever you are in your historical romance project—idea stage, drafting, or revision—and get you to the next step over four Spring Saturdays. Each week we’ll focus on one craft topic and aspect of historical romance, I’ll offer prompts for some co-writing time, then you’ll have the intervening week to work more on your manuscript. When we come back together we’ll share what we’ve accomplished, check in on progress, and tackle the next craft element.

9:30 am–12:30 pm
This is a small group experience and space is strictly limited!
Here’s what we’ll do:
The secret to keeping a reader engaged is creating protagonists they care about and want to follow to the end of the story.
We’ll explore some techniques and secrets to doing just that and work in small groups to put your protagonists to the test.
Conflict and tension are the drivers of pace—and in romance, there are plenty of opportunities for both! But how do you keep it true to your historical period?
We’ll have lots of fun discussing and sharing!
Adding complications is a great way to keep raising the stakes for your protagonists—and keep your reader on the edge of their seat!
Once again, let the history be your guide here and give readers an experience that transports them to another time.
What does your HEA look like? How does it reflect the tension and complications, the essence of your protagonists?
This week is all about making sure your readers are eager to read your next book!
