Jamie is available to travel to your writing association and give a one-hour workshop on the following topics:
Deep POV: Eliminating Authorial Intrusion
In this one-hour workshop, we will discuss things to consider when choosing the right POV, and practical tips for writing Deep POV.
Eliciting Emotion: Hook Your Readers’ Hearts
Learn how to grab your reader at the outset and keep them emotionally invested long after they finish the book.
Genre Blending: Hitting the Sweet Spot between Romance and Women’s Fiction
Books that straddle the fence between romance and women’s fiction are gaining popularity in the marketplace. This workshop will give you the tools needed to craft a blended story that editors will buy and readers will love.
Laying Down the Law: How Basic Legal Concepts Can Help You Plot and Enhance Conflict
Through brief lecture and hypotheticals, you will learn to use basic commercial and criminal law principles to create realistic plots and conflict for your romance and women’s fiction stories.
Many times I’m inspired to create a character or a story based on a song that I hear or love. I always compile a playlist when I’m writing the first draft because it helps keep me focused (and it’s just fun!). My playlists include songs referenced in the book, as well as “theme” songs for characters and major turning points. Similarly, I’m visually driven, so I also love creating Pinterest boards with images and quotes that are salient to the book. I’ve also created a few book trailers, which are short and sweet. If you’re interested in getting inside my head (and behind the scenes of my books), take a look and listen.
