Your romance author
super strength is—
You love working with other authors—and they love working with you!
If you were a romance novel, you’d fall into the “why choose?” sub-genre since you’re happiest when you have more than one partner to cheer on and cheer you on.
As an author, you’re a lot like the lovers in your story—you don’t want to do this alone, so you find your mates and help each other hit “publish” together!
Your romance author super strengths
Your author mantra
I like building and nurturing the relationship between my hero and heroine,
so my writing is not too fast and not too slow–like their love story.
Your Enchanting Author style breakdown
(And by breakdown I don’t mean the collapse on the daybed, fanning yourself kind … just to be clear)
Your heroine’s go to quote
“I’d love to be spontaneous with you, honey, even though I was planning to go to bed early tonight.”
Your perfect reader review
“Once I picked up this romance I could not put it down. The story grabbed me by the feels and I one-clicked her next book since I didn’t want to leave her story world.”
Your perfect day as a romance author
You wake up and check in with your writing partner to make sure she’s online and ready to sprint with you. You set and declare your mini-goals, write for 25 minutes then take a 5-minute break to chat before you get back to writing more words because this book won’t write itself and you’re committed to becoming a published romance author.
Famous characters who really get you

Your hero and heroine are waiting—possibly patiently, but perhaps with aching bits—for you to tell their love story.
Your readers are waiting, too, for this happily ever after that only you can write.
A love letter to your romance author personality
Dear enchanting romance author,
I know we just met, but here’s the thing: I see you and your team-seeking ways. It’s time to embrace your author personality to fall in love with the process of writing your romance.
No matter where you are in your manuscript relationship—
- at the awkward meet cute stage, still getting to know each other,
- or the delicious falling in love stage where everything flows like a chocolate fountain,
- or the heartbreaking part of the writing process when your confidence or motivation has walked away with nary a kiss on the forehead,
- or the inevitable coming back together—since this is a love story!—and the grand gesture when your manuscript shares its most precious secrets with you and cradles you until you reach ‘The end’
—you need to know that every romance author you read and love took time to figure out how to work with their stories, what their own writing happy place is, and wrote scrappy rough drafts before anyone ever saw a word of the stories that make you laugh and cry and feel…
And, that just like the two (or three of four) characters you’re creating a happily ever after story for, your own author happily ever after will probably not be found on your own. Even the grumpiest hero who believes he’ll never pair with another is eventually brightened by a sunshine-y counterpart.
Not to suggest that you are cloudy! No, no, no!
What I mean is, if you’ve been trying and struggling to write your romance on your own, your people are here for you. If you’ve had any of these thoughts, the attractive hero with the perfect teeth and just-messy-enough hair over in the corner has something they’d like to whisper in your ear. Lean in, just a little…
You don’t have to do this alone. I’ve got you. Let me help you…
