So Your "Sexy Romance Novel" isn't a Sales Magnet?

Want to know why?

What stops a Romance novel from selling?

The answer to that question is simple. FIXING the problem takes a well-developed Tool Kit of sophisticated skills.

Let's consider your brawny, brooding Alpha. You think your hero fires up the blood. You have no idea that you've written him into a trap, called the 50/50 stereotype. (And even if you DID know, you haven't mastered the skills to redeem him.) 

Let's consider your Beta Charmer. He's supposed to be stealing hearts, not making readers squirm. For reasons that still mystify you, he reads like a cheesy caricature of the funny Leading Man that you envisioned.

Obviously, you didn't intend to drive readers away. You didn't intend to earn a reputation for less-than-satisfying love stories. But the painful truth is, publishers refuse to buy your books. Customers are leaving 3-star reviews. Beta Readers haven't been encouraging. (In fact, Beta Readers haven't even been HELPFUL. Otherwise, your books would be success stories by now!)

So what tragic faux pas has occurred, to keep readers from liking (and buying) your Romance novels?

Like I said, the answer to that question is simple: Your writing failed to make readers fall in love. 

Now let's get down to business. How do you fix this Herculean problem?

You're probably thinking, "I'll add more sex." (That's hilarious. Nice try, though!) Sorry to burst your bubble. Graphic depictions of bumping and grinding will NOT earn you more sales and better reviews (at least, not in the commercial Romance market.)

Let me pose the question a different way. Do you know what makes Romance readers turn the pages as fast as they possibly can?

Do you know what keeps them fixated on a love story, eager to reach the First Kiss? The Consummation Scene? The Happy-Ever-After?

Do you know what makes them rush back to the book store, eager to find your next novel and start their reading journey again, with YOUR heroes and heroines?

If you can make your reader's pulse speed and her mouth water, then you'll sell gobs of books, my friend.

But first, you must understand how to combine 9 specific writing tools. 

So if you want to create Emotional Tension that makes a reader's heart yearn, and Sexual Tension that makes her temperature rise, then you've found the perfect writing course. 

All you have to do is show up...

And receive the keys to your success.

Here’s what people are saying about your Instructor

and her Romance-writing courses:

Recommended by Publishers

There's a difference between writing a story, and writing a story for a commercial audience. Very few authors make the transition to commercial viability. Adrienne is a gifted storyteller in her own right, and she has the ability to teach the craft to other authors. This is why we send authors to Adrienne when we see untapped potential.

Not only has Adrienne written successful Romance novels, she has mastered the skills for helping other writers succeed. Thank you, Adrienne, for helping me become a better author!

Adrienne is a wonderful, inspiring writing coach and teacher... In my fiction-writing, (she) pinpointed weak areas quickly and offered excellent suggestions for improvement, which helped me get my first publication credit in an anthology.

Definitely worth the investment. I would HIGHLY recommend Adrienne's courses, and her coaching is worth every penny!... Now (a) publisher wants to read my full manuscript. We're even talking about a spin-off!

Here's what you'll learn in the 50 Ways Course:


Lesson 1: What's "hot" and what's not in a hero?

Emotional and sexual tension spring from strong characters. In Lesson 1, you'll learn advanced writing techniques, so you can elevate your hero above the mind-numbing cliché of the muscle-bound hottie:

  • You'll dive deep into the 3 primary hero-types: mouth-watering Good Boys; deliciously naughty Bad Boys; and the yummiest heartthrob of all: the Hybrid Hero.
  • You'll learn what readers consider the top 10, most desirable traits in a Romance hero (as revealed in a national survey.) 
  • You'll discover the narrow margin of "badness" that is acceptable in a Romance hero.
  • You'll identify the "character taboos" that can kill the sale of your book. 
  • You'll explore best practices for redeeming a hero, whose halo has slipped. 
  • Lesson 1 also includes 3 writing challenges. They are designed to help you analyze characterizations that you admire; apply similar techniques to your hero; and restructure any unlikeable male character, turning him into an acceptable love-interest for a Romance novel. 
  • To complete Lesson 1, a 15-question quiz will help you review key concepts.


Lesson 2: Writing to Seduce the Reader

Contrary to popular belief, Romance heroes aren't written to seduce the heroine. They're written to seduce the reader! Here's what's included in Lesson 2:

  • You'll discover how to eliminate the 50/50 stereotype.
  • You'll learn, step-by-step, how to escalate emotional tension between your characters.
  • You'll learn how to keep your hero believably "manly" while he's feeling vulnerable.
  • You'll learn 50 concrete writing strategies — with story examples — so you can write a heart-warming hero with sex appeal. 
  • Lesson 2 also includes 4 writing exercises. Each is designed to help you develop "shades" of emotion, and/or to practice "masking techniques" (to hide a hero's true feelings from other characters.)
  • To complete Lesson 2, a 15-question quiz will help you review key concepts.


Lesson 3: Sizzling Seductions & Sensual Love Scenes

If you want to sell Romance novels, you have to become a master of sexual tension. In Lesson 3, you'll learn how to:

  • Differentiate between the male sexual fantasy, the female sexual fantasy, and gratuitous sex (pornography)
  • Craft sensual language that moves readers emotionally and builds the appropriate level of heat for your subgenre
  • Develop steamy seductions, breathless kisses, and sexy battles of wit
  • Master 8 simple, but highly effective writing strategies to craft heart-pounding love scenes (aka, consummations)
  • Make the sparks fly between your hero and heroine on every page! 
  • Lesson 3 includes 3 practice exercises and a 15-question quiz so you can review key concepts. 
  • Upon the successful completion of this course, you will be able to download a Certificate of Achievement.

during one of the national conventions that clamor for her workshops, 

you'd have to spend $1,700 (or more) on your ticket and expenses.

inviting her to become one of its Romance-writing instructors, 

they wanted to sell her courses for $800.

My Friend,

If you can’t make your readers fall in love, nothing else will matter.

Your sassy heroine, gorgeous hero, and clever plot are merely instruments in the symphony of heartfelt storytelling that your readers want and expect from you.

With nothing more than the Written Word, you must generate the emotional sparks and sexual fireworks that every Romance reader longs to feel. That task isn't easy. Sure, you can keep tinkering with your manuscript. You can keep trying to please your Beta Readers (whose advice may be STALLING your career.)

Or you can enroll in this course today, and master the most crucial skills in a bestselling author’s Tool Kit.

Remember: Writing Romance is your dream job. I'm here to help.
