As a writer, reaching readers can be a frustrating and exhausting experience. This can be especially true for self-published authors who are doing everything on their own, sitting at their computer wondering...who are my readers? Where do I find my readers? And what, exactly, is it they think about our books? In Romance Readers Tell All, authors of the genre can get the answers to these questions and more. H.C. Bentley went straight to the readers to get feedback on:<br /><br /> - the demographics of today’s romance reader<br />- what they look for in terms of websites and social media<br />- how they shop for books<br />- finding new authors and more<br /><br />H.C. puts all the feedback into an easy-to-follow guide so romance authors can use the information to adjust their marketing and social media to reflect the expectations of their readers. If you want to get inside the minds of current romance readers, then Romance Readers Tell All is a book you should invest in.

<p></p><h2><strong>Layer your novel to success with this innovative, simple technique!</strong></h2><p></p><p>Writing a terrific novel is a complex endeavor. And while there are hundreds of books, podcasts, and blog posts that teach aspiring authors how to structure scenes and plot out a solid story, none implement the most intuitive and effective method for success.</p><p>What is that method?</p><p></p><h3> <strong>Layering.</strong></h3><p></p><p>Novels are made up of dozens of scenes, and regardless of genre, time-tested structure dictates what key scenes are needed and where. Most writers are familiar with some of those scenes: the Inciting Incident, the Midpoint, and the Climax, to name a few.</p><p>But novelists need more than a few landmarks to find their way across the tricky terrain of novel plotting.</p><p><strong>They need a surefire method to organizing <em>all their scenes</em>.</strong></p><p>In <em>Layer Your Novel</em>, you’ll be introduced to an innovative, intuitive method for arranging your scenes and crafting a beautifully structured story.</p><p>First, you construct the ten most important scenes as a foundation.</p><p>From there, you choose from one of three methods to craft a second layer of scenes: the action-reaction layer, the subplot layer, or the romance layer.</p><p>Once your second layer is integrated, next comes the third layer: the processing scenes that the glue your plot together.</p><p>In <em>Layer Your Novel, </em>you’ll learn:</p><ul><li>What the 5 major turning points are and where they’re placed in your novel</li><li>How to know exactly where to start your story and how to set up your premise</li><li>What the ten key scenes are that serve as the framework for your novel</li><li>What pinch points are and why you need them</li><li>How to craft those essential twists and where they’re placed in your story for greatest impact</li><li>Why your protagonist’s goal is the key to great storytelling</li><li>How to come up with a meaningful subplot that will showcase your story’s themes</li><li>How a romance novel is structured and how to plot out the romance story line</li><li>How to analyze best sellers in your genre to identify and learn from the layers evident in their plots</li><li>How to apply this layering method to novellas</li></ul><p></p><h3><strong>Special bonus analyses! </strong></h3><p></p><p>In <em>Layer Your Novel</em>, you’ll dig into deconstructions of best-selling novels across genres to see how successful authors have their key scenes in all the right places, which gives credence to this practical layering method. In contrast, examples of best sellers are dissected to show the structural flaws due to the lack of the needed foundational framework that this layering method advocates.</p><p></p><h3>Don’t guess what scenes you need in your novel. Don’t guess where your scenes go. Guessing usually leads to novel failure.</h3><p></p><p>With the method you’ll learn in <em>Layer Your Novel</em>, you’ll guess no more.</p><p></p><h3><strong>You can write terrific novels, every time, if you layer your novel following this blueprint!</strong></h3><p></p>

Over 3 million students will apply to colleges alongside you. The Ivy League Schools alone will review nearly 200,000 applications. Your essay will get 3 minutes. <br /><br />This book will show you how to write a much better essay than you can today. You should read this book if you are: <br />- A high school junior or senior applying soon to colleges<br />- A college junior or senior applying to grad school<br />- Someone wishing to write un-cringeworthy prose<br /><br />This book will:<br /> - tell you step-by-step how to construct your story and write and refine your personal statement.<br /> - pick apart real essays to show you exact do’s and don'ts. Among the many samples, you will find instances similar to your own style. Reading their critiques will be like having your writing analyzed and improved by a college coach.<br /> - show you several before-and-after’s, NOT just the after’s. It takes you from raw first drafts (good ones and bad ones), through analysis of the writings, to final, polished essays. You get to learn from other people’s mistakes – less painful than learning from yours.<br /><br />It will help you:<br /> - learn a seven step program to organize and construct your personal statements<br />- see how you should create your story arc<br />- encounter the seven deadly stylistic sins to avoid<br />- review real college essays going from first drafts to final, polished statements.<br />- learn the three things colleges really want<br />- find out what is the only thing that matters<br /><br />It will also get rid of your biggest college application fears:<br />1.You must be a great writer to write a great college essay.<br />2.Without exceptional grades you are doomed.<br />3.You need a well-rounded extra-curricular resume to even be considered at good colleges.<br /><br />This book was written by me for YOU:<br />I applied to and was accepted at Princeton, MIT (twice), Stanford (twice), Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth, Brown, and Carnegie Mellon (I chose MIT for both undergraduate and graduate studies). Yes, I had good grades but so did many, many others who did not get into these colleges. The difference was how I presented my story in my essays.<br /> Now an Education Technology entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, California, I regularly coach high school students on how to tell their stories in an authentic and compelling way.<br /> I wrote this book for you, to help you tell your story.<br /><br />
