It’s Just Emotion

Emotional depth is the key to an unforgettable romance. Learn how to set up characters and plotlines to create scenes with maximum emotional impact and make your romance stand out from the pack.

Elizabeth Hoyt is a New York Times, USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of historical romance, including reader favorite, The Raven Prince. She also writes deliciously fun contemporary romance under the name Julia Harper. Born in New Orleans, but raised in the frigid winters of Saint Paul, Minnesota, Elizabeth was fortunate to travel extensively when she was growing up and lived in St. Andrews, Scotland; Oxford England; and Kawasaki, Japan. She went to the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she not only earned a degree in anthropology but also met Mr. Hoyt. Some years later, after a short pause to birth and raise two children, Elizabeth realized that she really wasn’t qualified to do anything but Make up Stories and started writing.

Elizabeth now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with three untrained canines, a garden in constant need of weeding, and, of course, Mr. Hoyt.

Coming up on 14 April 2018 at 10am – 12pm is Michael Hauge  – put it in your calendar and join us live.


Good scenes are like great movies in miniature: they draw the reader into a unique reality; create empathy with the characters; reveal compelling desires and insurmountable conflicts; propel the action forward; contribute to character growth and theme; and elicit bigger-than-life emotions.

Using examples from successful novels and films, this webinar will reveal the essential tools for writing scenes that seduce and enthrall your readers.

MICHAEL HAUGE works with people who want to change more lives, and make more money, by telling compelling stories. He has been one of Hollywood’s top coaches and story experts since 1985, and has worked with countless screenwriters, novelists and filmmakers. He has consulted on projects starring (among many others) Will Smith, Morgan Freeman, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise and Reese Witherspoon.

Applying those same, powerful storytelling principles, Michael also coaches independent consultants, speakers, marketers, entrepreneurs and business leaders on using story to transform the lives of their audiences, clients and customers.

Michael is the best selling author of Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds, Writing Screenplays That Sell, and his latest book, Storytelling Made Easy: Persuade and Transform Your Audiences, Buyers and Clients – Simply, Quickly and Profitably.
