Romancing the Grand Gesture

About Romancing the Grand Gesture

The Romancing the Grand Gesture masterclass is a focused online video course that teaches fiction writers how to dial in the Grand Gesture romance-writing plot beat with confidence. This late-story moment is iconic, a scene that leaves readers feeling happy and fulfilled and can set your author brand apart.

This masterclass is ideal for romance writers, but even non-romance fiction authors can use this unique 4-step technique to craft memorable stories about heroes who become better versions of themselves.

The Romancing the Grand Gesture masterclass will help you:
- Learn why not every "grandiose" gesture is a true Grand Gesture (& how to TEST it)
- Understand the 3 key elements that must happen in the story BEFORE a Grand Gesture can happen.
- Check the emotional strength of your hero’s growth arc and spot when it needs MORE development.
- Script your hero’s big Grand Gesture moment using a FILL-IN-THE-BLANKS “Line Lib” that doesn’t require any planning or outlining.

In addition to the in-depth video instruction, the Romancing the Grand Gesture course also includes:
- Extra study resources, including a Q&A bonus video featuring two fiction book coaches.
- Ongoing (”lifetime”) access to the course.

If you're serious about writing memorable character-driven fiction books that readers rave about, the Romancing the Grand Gesture course is the perfect way to bring all your writing skills together to craft a single powerful scene.
