There are plenty of writing courses out there. But how many are tailor-made for the romance writer? Happily Ever After will make your romance writing dreams come true!
Have you ever submitted your romance manuscript only to find you get a form rejection?
Did you revise the manuscript and still get a form rejection?
Want to know what was missing?
Every time I review a manuscript, I look for the one thing that will have me turning the page. And yet, time and time again, these well-written manuscripts are missing that one vital ingredient that turns a form rejection into a ‘yes’.
Most writing courses won’t tell you what that is. They’ll tell you how to write character sketches and how to use the senses in your writing…all good things but that’s not what makes a great STORY.
How do you know if you have a great story?
Some writers think this means obstacles. And they’re halfway right.
Some writers think it’s a great ‘hook’. And they’re about part way right.
Some writers think it’s lots of arguing. And they’re a little bit right.
The key to a great story will unlock your writing...every time. And it’s not about coming up with a gripping what ifscenario. Or some clever marketing plan. Sure, these things might help you along your way, but they won’t make your book unputdownable.
I’ve read countless manuscripts where the writer has worked on their craft and the paragraphs flow…but the story? There’s nostory.
Have you ever read a book and thought, but nothing happened, it was so boring? That’s because they’re not using the one thing that will turn their story around.

Reading romance is often categorised under ‘guilty pleasure’, as though it were something shameful. But, the statistics suggest that there are a helluva lot of women indulging in reading romance. According to the RWA, over 80% of all readers of romance are women (you can read their full statistics here). And, that same shameful pleasure accounts for more book sales than ANY OTHER GENRE. What’s shameful about that?
Nothing, that’s what. The romance writing industry generates over a billion dollars per annum and it largely by women for women. Could this be the reason it’s considered shameful? As though something women-centric could not possibly be of any real value? Yet, the figures speak for themselves. Romance readers are voracious and flipping through one of their many authors, it’s easy to see why.
For starters, women are having great conversations, great careers, and great sex between these covers. Romance heroines can have it all.
The characters overcome some serious emotional conflict to reach their happily ever afters. No matter how dire the situation, love will conquer all. Is there something wrong in investing in hope? I don’t think so. Not in this age where any glance at Twitter or the media shows a world on fire.
Why not be part of that hope? Why not write something that will uplift your reader? Give them the hope they need? The smile? The cry? Isn’t it connection that we all crave?
