Three Upcoming Revamped Stories for the Holiday Season

The holidays are fast approaching and I’m currently revamping three back titles that should be released in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

I thought I’d share the covers with you here and I’ll let you know when each one is added to the book sites-

Introducing the Book Fairy Godmother Mentorship Program

child-1845975_640

 

In January 2018, I’ll be launching a new coaching/mentoring/critiquing event called the Book Fairy Godmother Mentorship Program. It’s a six month program that will run through the end of June.

Here’s what it will include-

A one hour one on one introductory planning meeting via Skype.

During this time I’ll get to know more about you and the book you’re planning to write. We’ll talk about setting up a writing schedule for you, iron out any initial problems and set in motion your plan to get your story written and completed.

Every week we’ll have a thirty minute meeting via Skype during which time we’ll have our progress report. We’ll talk about what’s working and what’s not and discuss your challenges and how I can help keep you on track.

Every month I’ll send you a checklist of things you’ll need to do and go through each step with you. As the months progress I’ll also go over what you should have done from the previous month’s checklist so we can keep tabs on your progress and should you be falling behind, how we can get you caught up.

We’ll gauge how things are going and if anything needs to be changed or tweaked.

Once your story is completed I’ll give you a full critique (I’ll also critique your synopsis too). This will be the usual in depth critique which will focus on all aspects of the story telling process, plot, characters, dialogue, POV etc. You’ll get feedback on what’s working and what needs improvement.

During the six month program you can e-mail me as often as you want and ask questions about any problems you’re having whether it be regarding your story or staying motivated.

As an added bonus you can pick two of my writing how to e-books and two writing classes of your choice.

There will also be a second bonus where you’ll be given access to my upcoming novel blueprint or freelance writing blueprint masterclass (your choice depending on if you’re working on fiction or non-fiction) that will be launched in March 2018.

As I want to give writers in this program lots of attention I’m limiting the debut launch of this program to the first five people who want to take part.

If you’d like to learn more about this program or have any questions you can contact me at vanessadevereaux@gmail.com

 

 

Stories I’m Working On….

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted on this site…and a while since I’ve released a new story. I’ve been busy with teaching writing workshops and also launching my own writing coaching and mentoring business (if you’d like to know more about that head over to http://www.susanpalmquist.com). I’ve been trying to keep up with re-releasing back titles…three coming in October and I’m also writing a TV pilot. So with all that going on you can imagine I’ve not had much time (or energy) to write new Vanessa Devereaux stories but I promise I will and very soon.

I might not have new stories this year but I will in 2018. I have an idea for a new erotica/erotic romance series set in the Old West which I’m excited about.Rose-petal with notebook.

I’m also planning to revamp this site and have some giveaways over the holidays. So please stay with me and I’d love to hear what sort of stories you’d like to see me tackle in 2018. Do you like erotica, historical erotica or are you a die hard bear shifter fan?

 

It’s a Party

It’s March already and it’s party time over at The Romance Reviews.

I’m taking part and March 21st I’ll be giving away an e-book which will be a copy of Callum, book one in my Cowboy Tough series.  In the meantime check out The Romance Reviews’ site for more goodies you can win.

Happy New Year and News To Share

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a happy 2017 to everyone.

I took a few weeks to recharge as this year is going to be a busy one.

I’m teaching at least two workshops every month which will be a first for me. I’ll also be trying to get my new coaching and critiquing business up and running and exploring new platforms on which to teach.

Bookwise, I hope to release at least one new title and one revamped title each and every month. I get rights back to about a dozen of my titles with Evernight Publishing and one from Total E-Bound all of which I either plan to rewrite and release as stand alone books or rewrite to fit into one of my current series.

Speaking of which, I’ll be debuting a new series very soon…it’s one of my current WIPs and that’s Cowbear Haven where I’m combing my love of cowboys and bear shifters together.

My next release will be later this month and is titled Erotic Bedtime Stories which is an anthology of some revamped older titles and I’m thinking about adding a brand new one too. Here’s a sneak peek of the cover.

You’ve probably heard about the closing of All Romance E Books which was actually one of my best markets for sales so if any of you purchased books from the site and are now wondering where to buy my titles, you’ll find them at most online book stores, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and also check them out at Smashwords too.

I’ll be giving the site a major overhaul soon and considering adding some more features for both readers and writers so please let me know what you’d like to see. Are you a writer who’d like tips about breaking into the publishing business? Or are you a reader who’d like to know more about what I’m working on and my writing process?

Don’t be shy and leave a comment because I’d love your input.

 

News, News and More News

One of my goals for the year was to start turning my books into audio format. I thought I’d take the plunge with one of my non-fiction books and How to Write a Romance Novel is now on sale at audible.com. The good news is I have a free copy to giveaway. Rules are simple just leave a comment telling me why you’d like a copy and I’ll pick the best one. Contest closes on Monday October 24th at Midnight Eastern. (and I’ll have more copies to give away very soon, plus a bunch of other goodies in my upcoming holiday giveaway). And beginning next year all my erotic romances and erotica will be turned into audio books too.

Second piece of news is, many of you know I teach and tutor and I decided to launch my own coaching business helping aspiring writers achieve their dream. The business was launched today and here’s the URL for the site if anyone’s interested http://www.novelworkshops.online.

I also want to thank all of you for following along with my posts, reading and buying my books and leaving the wonderful reviews that you do. You make sitting down to write each day so worth it-THANK YOU!
