***FIRST-TIME CLASS SPECIAL***
This is the first time I've offered this class online, so I'm offering a sweet first-time incentive if you sign up now. This first class will be offered for the super reasonable price of only $55, and after that, it will be offered at the regular price of $75. The next time I offer the class won't be until later this fall.
NOTE: I've decided to offer the class all summer, not only to give current students plenty of time to get the assignments and workshops done, but also because I've had several students enroll toward the end of the class. If you're interested in joining, do so at any time! I will be closing the class to comments August 15, and will take all the lesons down completely by August 31.

This course will be a combination of lessons and workshops. I will post a few lessons a week and you can work at your own pace. Although you aren't required to post your assignments and workshop pieces, I highly recommend that you do. This is a great opportunity to get more eyes on your project, and help you troubleshoot elements of your book that might need some work. Throughout the month, I will be available to answer questions. Be sure to read the FAQ below for specifics.
The lessons will be applicable to all subgenres of romance, including but not limited to: contemporary, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, sci-fi, romantic suspense, historical romance, LGBTQ, and all age groups and heat levels. A diverse group of writers will be in attendance!
