From Screen to Page and Screen

Presented by: Meredith Bonds

Date: May 2 – 13, 2022 (two week)

Pricing: A2P Member fee: $10

Non-A2P Member fee: $25 

About the Workshop:

You’ve written your book, you’ve gotten it professionally edited, you’ve got a gorgeous cover, and now all you want to do is hold it in your hand and bask in your glory. But how to get it from your screen to that of thousands of readers out there? How do you get it into print? I use two programs, one for print and one for ebook—Microsoft Word and Jutoh. In this course, I will teach you to use these two programs to produce a beautifully formatted, professional-looking book to upload to Amazon, Apple iBooks, Ingram Spark, and any other e-retailer where you plan to sell your work. Take control of how your book looks and update it easily by learning to format.

About the Presenter:

Meredith Bond is an award-winning romance author. She has been both traditionally and self-published and has written over thirty books, including three works of non-fiction. After teaching writing and self-publishing since 2005 both in person and on-line, she now owns and runs her own formatting and coaching business, Anessa Books, where she not only makes the words of her clients look beautiful on page and screen, but guides authors through the sometimes complicated process of writing and self-publishing.

Staring at a blank screen is unproductive. Let me teach you how to get past the roadblocks, get your hands back on the keys and fill that screen with words.

The Double D’s: Dynamic Description & Delicious Dialogue

March 23, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Online Classes tagged as

Presented by: Laurie Schnebly Campbell

Date: April 23, 2022, 9AM PT, 10AM MT, 11AM CT, 12PM ET

Pricing: A2P Member fee: No Charge

Non-A2P Member fee: $10

About the Workshop: 

Everyone tends to be better at writing one of the big D’s. (If you’re fabulous at both, you don’t need this session!) What kind of dialogue makes your characters real? What kind of description works best for your voice? No two writers will use the same techniques for these key elements, but having new tools to choose from can make writing description and dialogue easier and more fun…not only for you, but for your readers as well.

About the Presenter:

Laurie Schnebly Campbell loves giving workshops that draw on her background as an advertising copywriter, a counseling therapist, and a romance novelist who beat out Nora Roberts for “Best Special Edition of the Year.” Her favorite books are those created in the classes she teaches for WriterUniv.com, with 51 first sales so far.CLICK TO SIGN UP

Starting in the Right Place: Where Does the Story Begin?

March 18, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Online Classes tagged as

Starting in the Right Place: Where Does the Story Begin?

Presented by: Beth Daniels, aka Beth Henderson, J.B. Dane, Nied Darnell

Date: April 1 – 30, 2022 (one month)

Pricing: A2P Member fee: $15

Non-A2P Member fee: $30

About the Workshop:

I have a friend who is a NYT bestselling author. Even after 70 some titles, she still says when she starts writing it is always in the wrong place. She doesn’t get to the point where her story actually begins until Chapter Two. Which means she has to not only kill Chapter One, but make sure anything of importance that did get mentioned in Chapter One shifts to a better location.


The problem is a common one. I have a story that I’ve written the opening scene to three times and it was only that final time out that the story finally started in the right spot.


However, every wrong spot I begin means I’m narrowing in on the right spot.


How do you know the right spot from the wrong spot though? Ahh, that can be tricky. But there are “flags” to look for that help distinguish the right start from the wrong start.


Help you hit the spot that will snag a reader’s attention – and editors are among the first readers you want to snag, aren’t they?


In four weeks, we’ll pin down what is the best spot to start your story and come up with a template to judge future manuscripts by as well. Under the microscope will be characters’ motivation, identifying backstory and too much backstory, action, and more!

About the Presenter:

Beth Daniels lends the expertise she gained as a professional novelist with 30+ years and over 35 published novels, plus novellas and short stories to her list of achievements. Add in a BA in History and a MA in English Composition and Rhetoric with an Emphasis in Creative Writing, over a dozen years as a composition instructor at the college level, numerous online genre fiction writing workshops at various RWA online chapters, and the stats add up. She knows her onions and can maneuver her way through nearly any genre or subgenre birthed. She is one of the founders of the writing group The Bards of Bardstown and a past president of the Louisville, KY, Sisters in Crime chapter. Currently she writes The Raven Tales, an urban fantasy PI mystery comedy series, as J.B. Dane and standalone historical romantic mysteries, contemporary romantic suspense, and cozy paranormal mystery as Beth Henderson.
