Love Gone Wild – Bringing dialogue to life.

With only a few days left to register for the Love Gone Wild conference, do not miss your chance to learn from some writing craft techniques from the great…Anne Gracie.

Dialogue is the lifeblood of your story. Anne Gracie, award-winning author of nineteen novels, will share some of her best tips and techniques for making your dialogue sparkle.

Anne is a best-selling author in the USA and her Regency-era historical romances have been translated into more than eighteen languages, including Japanese manga editions (which she thinks is very cool). A lifelong advocate of universal literacy, Anne also writes books for adults just learning to read.

It’s written in the stars…come to Love Gone Wild to find out more.

Star signs will help you write more believable protagonists; understand their motivation; create conflicts that really matter; and take your characters on the journey they need to go on in order to find their happy ending.
