"The Market is Ripe - and, If You Follow Rob Parnell's Uniquely PROVEN Advice, Your Success in This Fabulous Genre is Practically Guaranteed!"
Listen - of all the fiction paperbacks published last year, almost 55% of them were genre romance novels.
In an industry worth over 3.5 billion dollars a year - and growing like no other genre, millions are earned by new romance authors on a daily basis (and this could be YOUR MONEY!)
These authors are not mega-stars or TV celebrities - they're just normal writers with homes and families, living in relative obscurity - but with one major difference - they're wealthy!
"Romance is the Most Popular Fiction in the World. It is also the Novel Writer's Most Profitable Market."
Did you know there are over 50 million romance readers out there, some of whom read up to 20 romances a month - even men, who make up an estimated fifth of all romance readers?
(It's also common 'insider' knowledge that around a tenth of romance authors are in fact men - who use female pseudonyms!)
Rob's unique writing course is a proven system for writing a romance - endorsed by romance writers the world over.
Rob Parnell has compiled the 'formula', tested it, verified it with romance publishers and romance writing associations - AND already enabled hundreds of authors to get deals for their romance novels. (One of his students won the Whitbread Prize for best novel of that year!)
A staggering 9 out of 10 writers who've taken Rob's romance course and completed their (let's face it, relatively short) novels have gone on to get publishing deals - from the likes of Harlequin, Mills & Boon, Silhouette, even Harper Collins.
Now, YOU are could be only months - perhaps weeks - away from getting the publishing deal you've always dreamed about.
Because that's the power of the romance genre - the demand for new writers and new romance stories is literally HUGE. And it's always been out there, waiting for you.
All YOU have to do is find out EXACTLY what is required.
It's more than doable - by any writer with a few weeks to spare and a desire for success - and not a little fame. (Romance readers are very loyal by the way.)
The average advance for a category romance is between $5,000 and $15,000 - and you usually get royalties on top - say, $15,000 to $50,000 - for just ONE book!
Sales of romances are almost guaranteed. You don't need to be a big name author. Romance readers will buy your work anyway - simply because it's out there!
All YOU have to do is find out how to write EXACTLY what romance publishers want - and that is the bit this course makes SO easy for you!
This course shows you, step by simple step, how to invent your main characters, then how to structure your plot into a commercial romance story.
Here are the course contents:
Module 1. "Modern Romance, its Place & Purpose"
Module 2. "The Myth of the Romance Formula"
Module 3. "Creating Dynamic & Believable Heroines"
Module 4. "Fun, Poignant & Realistic Motivating Factors"
Module 5. "Location, Setting & Background in Time & Space"
Module 6. "Hearts, Flowers & Weddings - The New Thinking"

Module 8. "Power Plays, Dreams and Perfect Pacing"
Module 9. "Overcoming Obstacles to Love & Lust"
Module 10. "Climaxes, False Starts and Denouements"
All this and lots of exercises, extra information, tips and pointers on writing style, voice, point of view, dialogue, flashbacks, foreshadowing, creating drama, tension and, as you'd expect from Rob Parnell, fast and effective easy writing, editing and polishing.
There is also important advice on preparing and submitting manuscripts for publication. The end section also includes a current market listing for romance publishers AND a list of romance literary agents.
