WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Authors often believe that suspense in a story is best left for the suspense genre, but the truth is that suspense can make any genre, from mystery to romance, become a compelling page-turner. The good news is with the right keys, you can unlock the suspense in your novel without losing your promise to stay true to the genre. Take this 4-week course to:

  • Learn how the art of subtext can drive the story forward
  • Uncover the naked truth of boring chapter formats and the easy way to make your chapters compelling
  • Discover the simplicity of putting time-locks in your novel for creating a powerful page-turner
  • Understand the value of having your characters act suspicious, even if they’re not meant to be
  • BONUS! Complete a short suspense story and, if you choose, it will be published in an ebook compilation.
