    This course changed how I write my books!

    It not only gives you the necessary elements needed in romance novels but also how to apply them to YOUR work. She includes real world examples that are easy to understand a digest.

    I really-watch this course over and over again when I get into the plotting stage of my writing process. Cannot recommend it enough!

  2. Amy Olle

    This course is AMAZING! I highly recommend it, especially if you’re writing romance or stories with more than one main character. The lessons are clear, concise, and packed with fantastic information you’ll be able to apply to your WIP immediately.

    As a first time writer, this course gave me the foundation I needed to start my novel. I was completely clueless where to begin and it laid out the elements I needed to write the bones of my first draft. I highly recommend taking this course especially if this is your first time writing romance.
