And along the way, they've developed some techniques that seem to work with readers.

And in this course, they share them with you. Give you their best stuff.

A romance that touches the heart of a reader is MORE than just 'boy meets girl', they fall in love and live Happily Ever After. You're thinking...what? Isn't that exactly what a romance is?



A powerful, heart-tugging romance goes deeper. The romance that moves us is the one that heals the deep wounds of the characters, grants hidden dreams and helps them become better people.

Makes an impact on our world.

Romance gets a bad rep. People call them formulatic, predictable. And there are plenty of bad. sappy, poorly written romances out there. But, there are also romances that deeply move us, change us, spark hope in our jaded hearts.

C'mon--even BRAVEHEART has a romance. Deep down we all love a romance that overcomes dire obstacles and wins the day. And because of that, a great romance is about the expectations. We expect to fall in love, just a little. To feel something when we close the book

But here's the truth..yes, romances all use the same powerful ingredients. How they are combined, along with powerful characters and an author's unique voice makes each romance a different story. Still, it behooves us to learn the ingredients and how to combine them to deliver that powerful story.

If you want to learn how to write everything from a thread of romance to a full out romance, this course is for you!

You’ll learn:
  • How to structure your romance
  • How to create heroes and heroines readers will fall in love with
  • How and when your hero and heroine should meet
  • How to make two characters fall in love
  • How to write a sizzling kiss
  • How to create believable conflict
  • How to keep the tension high in the middle of a story
  • How to put romance on every page

Authors Susie May Warren and Ronie Kendig both excel in epic romantic suspense--from military and fantasy thrillers to international and adventure suspense. We've landed on best-seller lists (USA Today, CBA, ECPA and Amazon) and have won a number of awards (the RITA, Chrisy, Carols, Inspirational Romance Readers Choice, the Inspy) and received acclaim from Publisher's Weekly, Booklist and Library Journal.

And they too have learned a few things after writing a combined nearly 80 novels.

Most importantly, they learned that a romantic suspense that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat is MORE than just boy meets girl, they get into trouble, fall in love and live Happily Ever After. You're thinking..what? Isn't that exactly the substance of a romantic suspense?

Yes, but...

A powerful, heart-tugging romantic suspense goes deeper. The Romantic Suspense that ignites our pulse with riveting trouble, adds a ticking clock, increasing stakes and an impossible mission against evil.

The story should moves us, heal the deep wounds of the characters, grant hidden dreams and help them become better people.

Finally, it should satisfy our need for justice, reveal the heart of a true hero, inspire us with courage and remind us that good can triumph over evil.

But here's the conundrum. Romance and suspense are both genres on their own. But a romantic suspense contains a unique rhythm and set of ingredients that need intermix to create the story a reader is longing to read.

A romantic suspense author must know the ingredients and rhythm for both genres, along with how to combine them into a powerful plot if they want to create a story that keeps readers turning pages.

That's what Ronie and Susie May excel in...and teach you in this course.


You’ll learn:

  • How to structure your core story,
  • How to structure your romantic and suspense plots
  • The ingredients of a suspense, how to create them and integrate them into your novel
  • The ingredients of a romance, how to create them and integrate them into your novel
  • How to create larger-than-life, heroes and heroines who can save the world (and each other!)
  • How to create stakes and tension
  • How and when your hero and heroine should meet
  • How to make two characters fall in love

Hi. I'm Susan May Warren. I started writing while I lived in Siberia (yes, you heard that right--cold, snowy, Siberia). Alone. No one to help me, overwhelmed and not a little discouraged. Fifteen years later, I've published over 60 books in five different genres, have landed on numerous bestseller lists (including USA Today bestselling), won the RITA, CHRISTY and CAROL awards (and others) and started a school for novelists.

I've learned a few things along the way (beyond techniques on how to stay warm in the tundra!) Most importantly I learned that if I wanted to be published, I had to figure out how to write a book, how to edit it, how to step back from my stories, look at them with a critical eye, figure out what a good manuscript looks like, and then use my unique voice to make that happen.

First, write a good book. Then, learn how to sell it.

This is the foundation of NovelAcademy. Learning. Editing. Growing...Getting published and Staying published.

Rachel Hauck is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal best selling author. Her book The Wedding Dress was named Inspirational Novel of the Year by Romantic Times, and her book The Wedding Chapel was a Christy Award winner. Rachel lives in central Florida with her husband and writes from her ivory tower.

Ronie Kendig is a bestselling, award-winning author of over twenty titles. As an Army brat, she grew up surrounded by heroes and then married one. She and her Army-veteran husband live a short train ride from New York City with their twin sons and retired military working dog, VVolt. Ronie's degree in psychology has helped her pen novels of intense, raw characters and hone her Rapid-Fire Fiction brand of writing.

It's time to write that story simmering in your heart.

Time to launch the career that's waiting for you.

Your story matters! It's time to write a brilliant romantic suspense!
