I signed up for Jodi's workshop on transformational arcs because of specific comments from two acquiring editors. Jodi took the time to understand my situation, the editorial feedback, and my novella, including what I could (and should) realistically accomplish in that length piece. I didn't expect to receive such detailed one-on-one feedback.

Description of Workshop:

Are book blurbs holding you back from moving ahead?You might be surprised to find out how many authors lose sells simply because the readeris first caught by a great cover then reads the blurb and ... they feel meh. So they look at all the other shiny covers and keep reading until one grabs them. 

No time or interest in taking a long class? You'll love this.

Get in and get it done in one day! This blurb intensive one-day program is designed for the working writer. If you have a plan and a series, an idea for a connected universe, or just need to take your current blurbs up a notch, this workshop is for you!

Join New York Times bestselling author, Dianna Love, co-author of Break Into Fiction™  and professional developmental editor, Jodi Henley, for a solid day of go-at-your-own-speed lessons and real-time feedback.

What is required to be prepared for this class?

Very easy to take this course:

Bring your blurbs (limit 2) or thoughts, and covers if you have them, and load that text ahead of time, so we can spend workshop day focused on your needs. Get it all done in a day and call it a day. Why stress over blurbs when you could be writing? Plan ahead and pack your war chest full of blurby goodies ready to go when you’re ready to release that awesome book!

Will there be homework and feedback?


Additional Information:

There won't be any homework, but there will be lots of feedback!

NOTE: Jump into the classroom the minute it opens (24 hours prior to workshop starting, classroom opens) and load your blurb material or upload some thoughts on your series, universe or books, so we’re familiar with your work. It’s not necessary to have a completed book. Get your blurbs done ahead of time!
