Fiction Coaching & Story Critiques for Publication

Testimonials

Brian Paules

"(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."

“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 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."

“I must tell you, I enjoyed our time on the phone and your e-mail comments thoroughly. Plus, you certainly heightened my awareness of opening with suspense and engaging the reader.  Anyone who hires you as their writing coach is getting an understanding and talented teacher to hold their hand through a barren landscape until they see the forest."

Learn How to Become an Author Who Sells

For more than a decade, Adrienne deWolfe has been a book writing coach for genre fiction (Romance, Mystery, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Thriller, and Westerns).  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 genre fiction writers to sell a full-length book manuscript to a New York publisher.

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

Philosophical Approach as a Book Writing Coach

As a book writing coach, Adrienne deWolfe maintains a positive, eye-on-the-goal focus for fiction writers, 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 fiction writers release negative, worrisome thoughts, thereby deepening an individual's 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 fiction writers through all manner of personal and professional challenges, including 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 book writing students, Adrienne deWolfe mentors fiction writers in a supportive environment so that they can:

        • Develop novel ideas
        • Improve fiction writing skills
        • Deepen their creativity
        • Set achievable goals while writing books
        • Balance book writing time with other professional or personal obligations
        • Build faith in fiction writing talent, and ultimately
        • Achieve publication

How do I apply for coaching?

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