Thanks so much for your support!/And a free book offer
It's official, I'm a writing teacher!
Many of you helped me with this writing course and I want to say thank you so much! You helped make this course a big success. The first class debuts on Feb. 21th. It's a six week course offered monthly and the fee is very affordable. The course is for beginning authors so if you've always wanted to write, but were afraid to take that first step, there's no time like the present.
In the class, we explore what makes a romance different from other genres. We look at what makes a great hero, a strong heroine and a lovestory that resonates with readers. We discuss the works of bestselling authors and how they weave their magic. Then we look at the publishing industry and learn the secrets of what it takes to break in. I'd love to see you there!
You can take Romance Writing Secrets vis the Internet through colleges and universities worldwide. To find a college or university near you, go to Education To Go's website at http://www.ed2go.com/.
Even if you're not interesting in writing, could you pass the word along to friends and family or anyone you know who might want to write? You can even tell them you contributed to the course.
Also, I have a copy of THERE GOES THE BRIDE to give away. Post here if you'd like to be in the drawing. I'll pick names on Sunday and post here.
Please indulge me a little brag moment. Here's what Romantic Times had to say about THERE GOES THE BRIDE.
4 1/2 Stars--This is a dynamite novel that readers will treasure for years to come. Wilde blends paranormal and mild chick lit elements, great humor and some suspense with wonderfully developed characters. Readers can really relate to them and will find themselves easily swept into this combination of Runaway Bride, Sex and the City and magic.
