Romance Writing for Fun & Profit! G-967

Are you wondering how to cash in on the 50 Shades of Grey Phenomenon?  Do you devour Harlequin romances and free ebooks on Amazon?  If you've ever thought, “I could write something better than this,” this course may be for you. 


Jamie K. Schmidt had five books coming out in 2014 and will show you how to use your creativity to get words down on the page.  She’ll show you a quick plot outline that works for “plotters” as well as “pantsers” to make the most of your writing time.  She’ll go over finding time to write, getting motivated to finishing your project and where to send your manuscript.  Jamie will present to you the top five romance and erotic ebook publishers, what they’re looking for, terms, and what to expect once you send in your manuscript.  She’ll talk about the importance of a query letter and a good synopsis and give examples.  Do you want an agent or do you need an agent?  Jamie will show the pros and cons of both. She’ll compare self publishing your manuscript with deciding on an epublisher or a commercial publisher. You’ll leave the class with a list of websites and resources that will help you in your writing journey.
