"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." ~ Tambra Nichole Kendall, Published Romance Author 

Learn How to Become a Romance Author Who 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 aspiring Romance authors to sell a full-length book manuscript to a New York publisher.

"Not only has Adrienne deWolfe written successful Romance novels, she has mastered the skills for helping other writers succeed. Through her keen insights and intuitive advice, my current manuscript has been refined into the type of work that shines. Thank you, Adrienne, for helping me become a better author!”

~ E.C. Stilson, #1 Bestselling Amazon Author of The Golden Sky

Today, Adrienne combines her experience as award-winning novelist, book writing coach, RWA contest judge, internet marketer, publicist, and college instructor to help Romance writers advance their skills sufficiently to land a literary agent, win industry awards, and write Romance novels that sell.

Adrienne deWolfe's Philosophical Approach as a Romance Writing Coach

As a writing coach for aspiring Romance authors, Adrienne deWolfe 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.  

“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.”

~ Urania Fung, English Professor, Tarrant County College (Texas)

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
