Beyond the Hero’s Journey
with Plot MD Adrienne Bell

Get your personalized prescription for crafting a compelling novel that hooks readers and never lets them go. No matter if you’re a plotter or a pantser (or anywhere in between), this hands-on workshop will give you the tools to improve your storytelling at any stage of your process. Focusing specifically on how the dual protagonist nature of romance creates a different structure than the typical hero’s journey, we’ll cover how to:

  • Set, track, and fulfill reader expectations
  • Create relatable dilemmas that resonate with readers
  • Create a connected flow of action that pulls readers through any story
Adrienne Bell is the author of over a dozen romances including the bestselling contemporary Second Service series and the Exiles of the Realm paranormal series. She is also the creator of Plot MD, a story structure system that helps authors craft compelling novels. She has coached authors in all stages of their careers, from aspiring to those on national bestsellers lists. Adrienne lives with her family on the far edge of the San Francisco Bay Area where she spends her downtime reading, watching nerdy television, and scrolling through Disneyland fan sites.
