Creating Memorable “Firsts” in Your Novels


 

Speaker

Jeanine Englert

 

Jeanine Englert is a double VIVIAN ® FINALIST, Golden Heart ® Finalist, and Silver Falchion and Daphne du Maurier Award winner in historical romantic suspense. After years of writing in secret, she joined Romance Writers of America and Georgia Romance Writers in 2013 and has been an active member ever since.

She writes Scottish Highland historicals and historical romantic suspense novels. When she isn’t wrangling with her characters on the page, she can be found trying to convince her husband to watch her latest Masterpiece or BBC show obsession. She loves to talk about books, writing, her beloved pups, and of course mysteries with other readers on Twitter @JeanineWrites, Facebook @JeanineWrites, or at her website www.jeaninewrites.com.

Talk

Do you struggle with creating powerful first lines, first pages, or first chapters? In this interactive workshop, we will study and discuss the importance of these memorable “firsts” in your novel as well as techniques that have helped me and other writers in developing them. Writers are encouraged to bring their own works in progress to share or work on during the meeting.
