October 2017 All-Day Writing Workshop with Damon Suede
Damon Suede grew up out-n-proud deep in the anus of right-wing America, and escaped as soon as it was legal. Having lived all over, he’s earned his crust as a model, a messenger, a promoter, a programmer, a sculptor, a singer, a stripper, a bookkeeper, a bartender, a techie, a teacher, a director… but writing has ever been his bread and butter.
Though new to romance fiction, Damon has been a full-time writer for print, stage, and screen for two decades. He has won some awards, but counts his blessings more often: his amazing friends, his demented family, his beautiful husband, his loyal fans, and his silly, stern, seductive Muse who keeps whispering in his ear, year after year. Get in touch with him at DamonSuede.com.
POWER COUPLES: making lovers (Damon Suede)
Great romance starts with fascinating relationships: it takes two to tangle…Bring your fictional folks to the next level with a simple, powerful characterization technique that
- goes beyond boilerplate traits and faux interviews to build the perfect duo.
- amp the action, attraction, and interaction between them for your story.
- strengthen your ideas, your voice, and your projects at any stage.
Whether you like to wing it or bring it, you’ll leave this workshop with a new set of practical, hands-on approaches to making lovers who pop off the page.
BRINGING YOUR A GAME: brands that land (Damon Suede)
No two authors or careers are alike; our styles, strategies, and even notions of success vary wildly, and yet cookie-cutter promo persists. Make sure your brand is working for you, not against you by
- establishing a customized measure of success based on your goals.
- identifying your best approach to genre fiction promo.
- mapping brand assets and the start of a personalized career strategy.
In this class we’ll skip the one-size-fits-all Band-Aids. You’ll leave with action items specific to your skills, experience, and career goals so you can unleash your A game.
