Writing Multiple Series Virtual Workshop
Format: Facebook Group
Level: Intermediate to Advanced

August 11-17, 2019

A series can be a great way to launch a career and hook readers on your writing. Keeping readers coming back for more while managing multiple titles, series and genres can be somewhat overwhelming without a clear strategy in mind. As the author of six New York Times bestselling series currently at various stages, Marie Force offers some secrets to keeping multiple balls in the air at the same time. This topic will be useful for authors who have several titles to manage and are looking to grow their following. Marie will share some of the tricks of what works for her and offer an inside look at Maid for Love, the book that launched her most successful series. She will also share how she’s “trained” herself to write two—and sometimes THREE—books at the same time. 

Format: Facebook Group.

Level: Intermediate to Advanced.

Registration fee: $49

      Personal, practical, and generous. Marie Force shares her secrets on writing an engaging and long-living series. This workshop is a behind-the-scenes look at the journey of one of romance’s top writers. Marie generously shares her experiences at crafting multiple series that hook readers. She also gives personal advice and practical guidelines that can be applied immediately. We had a wonderful and friendly group and an enjoyable experience all around. Thanks Marie! —Rachelle Ayala on the Writing Multiple Series Workshop

       

      “Before taking Writing Multiple Series workshop I was stuck writing one series and couldn’t put out a second in another series without losing my mind with fantasy world hoping. During the class, I tried one of the strategies Marie shared. I tackled the book I’d placed on my back burner and tomorrow I’m writing the final chapter. In the class, Marie uses examples from her work, answers personal questions that apply only to you, and offers valuable information on what works and what doesn’t with scheduling, releases, series bible (you know you need one!) and more. Highly recommended.” —Milana Jacks

       

      “Love the workshop. The material was new and informative. Just what I needed. The presentation on the private FB group was excellent. Easy to follow and go back to if you needed to reread or catch new comments. It also gave the large group more of a sense of camaraderie. That’s we were all equals and learning from each other’s experiences. For my own writing I found that what I learned caused me to pause and take my time as I write. Making sure what I’m writing means something (not that it didn’t-just improve upon now) and not just putting words on a page in order to make some self-made word count. I wholeheartedly recommend authors take this workshop, no matter what stage their career is in. You’ll find some “ah-ha” moments for sure.”—Jamie Salisbury, author on the Writing Multiple Series Workshop

       

      “This has been an amazing workshop. I am so grateful that you take time to share your experience with other authors. Ever since I decided to go the self-publishing route I have been trying to learn as much as I can about the process to build my business plan. I have been building my resources and you are the gold standard of resources for me. Thank you so much for this workshop and all your efforts to help other authors.” —Author Elizabeth Spaur on the Writing Multiple Series Workshop 

      Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
