Marie Force: Secrets to Writing Sequels

February 19-23 , 2018
(Conducted via Facebook Group)

A series can be a great way to launch a career and hook readers on your writing. Keeping readers coming back for more while managing multiple titles, series and genres can be somewhat overwhelming without a clear strategy in mind. As the author of five New York Times bestselling series currently at various stages, Marie Force offers some secrets to keeping multiple balls in the air at the same time. This topic will be useful for authors who have several titles to manage and are looking to grow their following. Marie will share some of the tricks of what works for her and how she’s “trained” herself to write two—and sometimes THREE—books at the same time. Marie likes to say that a successful series is the gift that keeps on giving for an author!

This one-week class runs February 19 – 23, 2018 and will be conducted via a Facebook group.  Cost is $20 for SRW members, $25.00 nonmembers.

Register HERE, or contact classes@tucsonrwa.org for more information.

Catherine Chant: Writing the Romantic Novella

Class runs 2 weeks, beginning March 4, 2018

In this workshop you will learn what a novella is, how it’s more than word count that separates it from a novel, and how to successfully craft one of your own.
Lesson topics include: Scope and Pacing, Character Development, Conflict, Plot and Format.
At the end of the workshop, you will have a brief outline of a novella you can start working on this year, a list of prospective publishers to submit your work to, and some tips for self-publishing your novella at Amazon, if you prefer to go the indie route.
The workshop includes exercises with every lesson designed to strengthen the concepts discussed and individual feedback from the instructor.
