Coaching for Romance Authors

How to Write Novels That Sell


"(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 as) a writing coach. (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." 

"A wonderful author, speaker, and teacher, Adrienne's comments encouraged and helped me focus on the technical aspects as a beginning writer without becoming overwhelmed." 

“I asked Adrienne to critique and line edit my first short erotic 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 would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who would like to improve their writing."

“Thank you, Adrienne! You must have worked very hard on this (critique and homework plan!) I am very pleased. This is so exciting, exactly what I was looking for. And with the extra (character and) plotting help, I should be making improvements shortly! You are very motivating and inspiring! Your feedback was spot on, and I've learned a lot from you."

“Thank you for your critique. It was very useful. You taught me more in this email than I learned in 9 months of the (critique) club I was in.”

“In my fiction writing, Adrienne pinpointed weak areas quickly and offered excellent suggestions for improvement, which helped me get my first publication credit in an anthology of short stories. Adrienne is a wonderful, inspiring writing coach and teacher.”

Adrienne developed her Mentorship Program to help you, the aspiring Romance novelist, when you are:

~ Tired of contradictory story critiques that leave you confused about how to write a Romance novel that sells.

~ Ready to roll up your sleeves, finish writing your Romance novel, and market your fiction proposal to literary agents and book editors.

Learn How to Write Romance that Sells

For more than a decade, Adrienne deWolfe has been a book writing coach for Romance novels.  For three years, she taught the 8-week course, How to Write Novels that Sell (and its popular 8-week spin-off,  Novel Writing Blitz) at a college in her hometown.  Adrienne was approached to create the curriculum for these two courses because students at that college had grown frustrated with creative writing classes that weren't adequately preparing Romance authors to sell a full-length book manuscript to a New York publisher.

Adrienne's Approach as a Writing Coach

As a writing coach for aspiring Romance authors, Adrienne maintains a positive, eye-on-the-goal focus, drawing heavily upon the teachings of Attitudinal Healing International.  Adrienne is certified as both a peer counselor and group facilitator of the Attitudinal Healing program, which was created by California psychiatrist, Gerald Jampolsky, M.D., and is based on A Course in Miracles.  

Simple, universal, and powerful, the 12 principles of Attitudinal Healing are inspiring, life-changing tools.  They can be applied to daily situations to help Romance writers release negative, worrisome thoughts, thereby deepening the awareness of the immense power of attitude -- how it creates experience and how it impacts personal relationships. 

Adrienne has successfully applied the principles of Attitudinal Healing  to mentor Romance writers through all manner of personal and professional challenges, including the balance of home life and career demands, creative writing blocks, money shortfalls, editorial rejection, the cancellation of a fiction line, and career stagnation. By applying the principles of Attitudinal Healing to help her Romance writing clients, Adrienne deWolfe mentors Romance writers in a supportive environment so that they can:

        • Develop Romance novel ideas

        • Improve Romance writing skills (including sexual tension)

        • Deepen their creativity

        • Set achievable goals while writing Romance novels

        • Balance writing time with other professional or personal obligations

        • Build faith in fiction writing talent, and ultimately

        • Achieve publication

How do I apply for the coaching program?

Adrienne accepts a limited number of new Romance writers for coaching each month. If you would like to be mentored, please complete the fiction coaching application and email it to her, along with the first 10 pages of your manuscript (as described in the application.) Please allow 10 business days for Adrienne to review your documents. She will notify you by email regarding the next step.
