A compelling novel is more than a great plot and sympathetic characters. It’s more than settings that come alive and hooks that grab readers. It’s more than deep POVs and relatable GMCs. A compelling novel is all of these and more, fashioned together to take your reader on an emotional journey that will leave them breathless. From the big picture of plot and characters to the nitty gritty of scene structure and word choice, learn how to create irresistible, compelling, unputdownable fiction that will stay with your readers long after they’ve closed the book.

Key Note Speaker: Robin Patchen

Robin Patchen is a USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of Christian romantic suspense. She grew up in a small town in New Hampshire, the setting of her Nutfield Saga books, and then headed to Boston to earn a journalism degree. After college, working in marketing and public relations, she discovered how much she loathed the nine-to-five ball-and-chain. After relocating to the Southwest, she started writing her first novel while she homeschooled her three children. The novel was dreadful, but her passion for storytelling didn’t wane. Thankfully, as her children grew, so did her writing ability. Now that her kids are adults, she has more time to play with the lives of fictional heroes and heroines, wreaking havoc and working magic to give her characters happy endings. When she’s not writing, she’s editing or reading, proving most of her life revolves around the twenty-six letters of the alphabet. To learn more, swing by her website https://robinpatchen.com/.
