Three Successful Authors Tell All

Practice award-winning techniques and put best-selling concepts to work in your manuscript. This workshop is a HANDS ON classroom experience. So bring your current manuscript on laptop or a few scenes printed out and a pad of paper.

Amazon Bestselling Author Sylvia McDaniel will explain the Dollars and Cents of Writing Emotion – what emotions do readers crave? What specific emotions motivate them to open their pocketbooks and shell out hard-earned cash for your book? There is a list and she’s sharing it.

RT Reviewers’ Choice Award and RITA Nominee Historical Romance author Elizabeth Essex will explain Emotionally-Resonant Writing. She will provide numerous examples to show writers how to use emotive scene-themed words, and emotionally powerful character-themed words.

Award-Winning Regency and YA author Kathleen Baldwin will open her Emotional Writing Toolbox and share numerous devices, including: the use of emotionally charged props, scene and sequel, and emotional ladders to help you maintain clear, logical, easily understood emotional arcs.
