Big changes are coming to Make a Living Writing Romance…

I wanted to give everyone a head’s up about changes that are coming to the website. We’re going to be remodeling the site and shifting gears a bit. Look for additional information about how to be and feel more creative, inspired, motivated and successful as a romance author.

I have some excellent courses and materials being created for you and they’re all designed to help you tackle your writing goals with enthusiasm and inspired creativity.

I have the great pleasure to announce that I’m working with Sterling Publishing (a wholly owned subsidiary of Barnes & Noble) to create a different type of Story Starter book and I’m super excited to share that with you when it’s complete.

So where do you write and what do you use to feel inspired and motivated? Read More
