Want to get paid to write Romance novels? Put a fresh spin on these 23 wildly popular, boy-meets-girl plots!


Romance readers favor certain storylines and buy them repeatedly.

Authors who "get" this concept grow their income and their fanbase!

Let's assume that writing about love is your ideal, money-making career.

Let's also assume that life's other priorities chip away at your writing time: loved ones; work responsibilities; fitness regimens... (And let's not forget how you sacrifice SLEEP to keep pace with your world.)

Wouldn't it be great if you could:

  • Plot faster, 
  • Characterize quicker, and 
  • Write more books in less time (so you can narrow the gap between publication dates?)

Feeling skeptical?

Of course you are! So let me explain:

I'm not talking about a two-week frenzy, writing about love, and then collapsing on your bed after you type 50,000 words. (That's a recipe for poor health.)

Nor am I talking about lowering your professional standards to write schlock (which is the ultimate embarrassment and will drive away readers.)

Heck, I'm not even talking about slapping book covers on short stories, and calling them novellas.

Listen. If you dream of becoming a Romance-writing professional, then you must write commercial-grade fiction. That's a given, right?

So when I ask, "Wouldn't it be great if you could plot faster and characterize quicker?" I mean that you'd be writing loves stories of SUPERIOR QUALITY. I'm referring to beloved, full-length storylines that have a track record in the Romance genre. We're talking about proven plots that show up on the bestseller's lists, time after time.

Can YOU Benefit from Clever Shortcuts?

Of course you can! But first, you must learn what every bestselling Romance author had to learn before you:

Certain stories capture the heart and the imagination. No matter how many times the tale has been told, readers eagerly buy the next incarnation:

  • In the Mystery Genre, readers love to cheer on the good cop, whose courage and resourcefulness are tested to the max until he (or she) can triumph over evil.
  • In the Western Genre, fans thrill to watch the dirt-poor cowboy pick himself up, no matter how many times life knocks him down, until he achieves his dream of prosperity.
  • In the Romance genre, readers have their favorite go-to stories too. Savvy authors, who understand this concept, write Romance novels that sell!

How to Make Money, Writing about Love

Take a tip from a bestseller: Don't waste your time, trying to invent a story that has never been told. Romance fans WANT to relive the 23 themes in this course! (That's why those themes keep topping the charts.)

But why stop there? Once you understand why these themes appeal to your readers, I'll teach you how to:

  • Modernize tried-and-true tales, so readers of the 21st Century fall in love with YOUR brand of storytelling
  • Construct a framework for your most important characters (so you never have to devise a hero or heroine — from scratch — again!) 
  • Invent plot twists that keep your stories fresh (and win you loyal fans) and
  • Write top-rated Romance novels in less time, with less effort!

In today's billion-book market, can you really afford to publish only one Romance novel per year? Do you think your hard-won readers will remember you between pub dates?

Of course they won't. It's time to think like a bestseller. Master the clever shortcuts that wildly popular authors use to stay prolific, so they continue to dominate the sales charts...

Here’s what people are saying about your Instructor

and her Romance-writing courses:

Recommended by Publishers

Adrienne is excellent at teaching the commercial aspects of writing. I had an author come to us with a novel that was not commercially viable. I sent her to Adrienne. This author came back with a phenomenal re-write. The book was just recently released and is pulling excellent reviews, averaging 4.6 stars at Amazon.

Recommended by Bestsellers

I asked Adrienne to critique my first short romance. Her insights, suggestions and techniques made my story much richer. I’m now applying everything I learned from Adrienne to my (bestselling) novels. I really appreciate her advice and encouragement, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who would like to improve their writing.

What's Your Success Worth?

When a British education company approached Adrienne,

asking for the exclusive right to sell her Romance-writing courses online, 

they offered $10,000 for the curriculum that she'd developed!

If you wanted to hear Adrienne speak live in the United States,

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.

When a prestigious online university approached Adrienne, 

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

they wanted to sell her courses for $800.

So what's your success worth?

Adrienne has a proven track-record of helping published authors get better reviews.
