Register for Britta’s online class on Sat. June 27 from 11:00-1:00pm CST here.
Past attendees have said:
“I like the way Britta provided a mechanism to explore what a character might do, not necessarily in the context of the story, but just behave if I extracted them from the story and watched them go.”–Sam Ritter
“I’m starting a brand new project, so Britta’s Mincer Exercise was absolutely exactly what I needed. So much revealed in so little time!”–Roanna Flowers, author of Dramedy Au Contraire.
The Writing Immersion class focuses on timed writing exercises to explore point of view, relationships between characters, and the structure of your story. We’ll also have whole group discussions, a short breakout session for informal feedback and plenty of time to walk away with new insights into your story and characters as well as 500 new or revised words and tools to help you with your ongoing journey. In addition, you’ll have made new connections with writers around the world! Make sure to register by Friday, June 26 at noon CST.
July 1, 2020 Hirana’s War opens for pre-orders!
Extraordinary power brings great uncertainty…
After finding love on her long trek across the Eloian wilderness, Leanora is ready to settle down with Tarrok and begin their new life together. But the feuding factions on Hirana have other ideas.
Leanora is called upon once more to alter destiny—this time, the destiny of her mother’s war-torn planet. While preparing for war, she discovers that her musical gifts give her unprecedented power that could defeat the Yarats. In order to succeed, she must accept the help of a new ally named Gulnaz, whose destructive behavior could jeopardize Leanora’s mission.
Saving Hirana will require exceptional resilience and trust:
trust in Tarrok to hold her family together, trust in Gulnaz to fight with her against the Yarats, and trust in herself to change the fates of the planets.
…and the constant threat of Eloia’s enemies.
