Critique groups stalling your career?
If you’re tired of critique groups that mean well, but whose advice has stalled your career, Adrienne can help.
In addition to delivering writing workshops at five national conventions of Romance Writers of America, she taught fiction-writing courses for three years at a Texas college.
In fact, the students petitioned their English Department to hire Adrienne. The students had grown frustrated with creative writing classes that weren’t adequately preparing them to sell Romance novels to New York publishers. The students wanted to learn from a successful author, who knew how to write and teach commercial fiction.
(Creative-writing classes at the college level typically emphasize Literary Fiction. Romance publishers do not buy Literary Fiction.)

Adrienne is excellent at teaching the commercial aspects of writing. I had an author come to us with a novel that was not commercially viable. I sent her to Adrienne as a writing coach. This author came back with a phenomenal re-write. The book was just recently released and is pulling excellent reviews, averaging 4.6 stars at Amazon.
I asked Adrienne to critique and line edit my first short erotic romance. Her insights, suggestions and techniques made my story much richer. I’m now applying everything I learned from Adrienne to my (bestselling novels.) I really appreciate her advice and encouragement and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who would like to improve their writing.
Thank you, Adrienne! You must have worked very hard on this (critique and homework plan!) I am very pleased. This is so exciting, exactly what I was looking for. And with the extra (character and) plotting help, I should be making improvements shortly!
In my fiction writing, Adrienne pinpointed weak areas quickly and offered excellent suggestions for improvement, which helped me get my first publication credit in an anthology of short stories. Adrienne is a wonderful, inspiring writing coach and teacher.
Not only has Adrienne written successful Romance novels, she has mastered the skills for helping other writers succeed. Through her keen insights and intuitive advice, my current manuscript has been refined into the type of work that shines. Thank you, Adrienne, for helping me become a better author!
Thank you for your critique. It was very useful. You taught me more in this email than I learned in 9 months of the (critique) club I was in.
Adrienne’s comments encouraged and helped me focus on the technical aspects as a beginning writer without becoming overwhelmed.
Working with Adrienne was a great investment. (She) was a huge asset to the final product of my book. It was great knowing I could turn to an experienced writer for advice!
