Do you want to go from writing distress to writing success?
It’s Sharon here, and it’s my pleasure to introduce you to my friend and business partner.
Irene writes romantic suspense and light mysteries, but put her writing career on hold for the last year to work with EFT Master Carol Look and become qualified as a Certified Abundance Coach. She’s trained in a cutting edge acupressure mind/body technique that is clinically proven to turn off the stress response.
It’s an effective tool in relieving stress in many areas of life, such that issues preventing you from accomplishing goals—for instance your writing goals— just seem to slip away.
When Irene first told me about Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), often called ‘Tapping’ I was astounded at the best selling authors who rave about it.
“Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has vastly improved the quality of my life and my work. . . Don’t miss this healing opportunity. . .”
~ Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author of Crazy Sexy Kitchen
“EFT is the most powerful new transformational technology to come along in years.”
~ Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup For The Soul
Here’s what Irene has to say about what EFT (Tapping) has done for her.
“Tapping is the closest thing I’ve seen to a miracle. It’s helped me take the leap into a bigger, better version of me and what I want out of life.”
Not only is Irene an expert at EFT, she’s has been studying the craft of writing for over ten years and has attended many workshops conducted by industry leaders such as Donald Maass, Mary Buckham and Michael Hauge.
Irene’s refined her big picture editing skills to the degree that published members of her writing group turn to her for help.
“An editor who can take a step back and view the big picture is a rare commodity. I know many people who can provide a worthwhile copy edit, or a great proofread, but a developmental edit is often hard to come by. When I discovered Irene Jorgensen’s skill and talent for exactly that kind of high-level feedback, I felt as if I’d found the person who could help me truly succeed as an author—whether I was traditionally publishing, e-publishing or self-publishing.
Irene has worked on two wildly different projects for me–a historical steampunk and a contemporary fantasy–and her feedback has been invaluable. She’s helped me take the stories to a whole new level. I’m great at clever plots, but I struggle to breathe life into my characters. With some insightful but easily implemented improvements suggested by Irene, I was able to make my characters more believable, more likeable, more sympathetic. And with hardly any re-writing as well. (In fact, I used most of Irene’s suggested wording. I hit “accept change” a lot more often than “reject change.”)
Using a combination of a telephone call and track changes, my writing frustrations morphed from: “I know it’s now working but how do I fix it?” into rededication and new enthusiasm for the book. With Irene’s help, I know my books are now the best they can be!
Thank you, Irene.”

(And watch for Lost Boys 2.0 coming soon under the pen name Storm Grant.)
Both Irene and I both passionately believe the following quote from Robert Dugoni, NYT best-selling author of The Jury Master.
“Look within – many characters are to some degree a projection of the writer’s own personality.”
So if you’re looking for a unique intensive writing experience that allows you to get closer to Know Yourself, Know Your Characters, we would be thrilled to see you at one of our workshops.
