This Kiss – Romance Writing Coaching



If you feel you need, or want, coaching and feedback for ‘This Kiss – How to write a romance novel’, carry on reading.

How does the coaching work?

  1. We offer three sessions as an add-on for the course.
  2. Your coach is Mills & Boon Voice of Africa winner, Mia Botha*.
  3. Each session is 60 minutes and takes place via Skype or Facebook Video.
  4. For the exercises: You can use characters from your work-in-progress, or you can use different characters and ideas for each exercise.
  5. Max 600 words per exercise and four exercises per session.
  6. Exercises must be emailed to your coach (Mia) three days before the session.

All writers are at different stages of their writing journey. Therefore, the coaching is flexible and tailored for each student.

Some writers prefer to have their sessions as close together as possible and others prefer to spread it out over a few weeks. Some writers prefer to do the sessions while they are working through the course, others prefer to finish the course and then have the sessions.

NOTE: The sessions are valid for three months from the day or purchase.

Examples of schedules: 

  1. You can do one session per month for three months.
  2. You can do one session per week over three weeks.
  3. You can do all your sessions in one week.

These are just suggestions and you can work at a pace that is comfortable for you. We both have to find a time that would be suitable and take time zones and work schedules into account, but after hours and weekends are possible. (You will work out a schedule with your coach.)
