SFRB Recomends #14: On #Writing #Romance

If you write romance, this book is a must-have. Get thee to wherever you buy books from and get it!

Leigh Michaels has 148 books listed on her Goodreads page, most of them romances. She knows what she's talking about.

She covers what a romance novel is, how to research what else is out there to make sure your idea is unique enough to stand out, the essential elements of a romance, how to balance sexual tension, even some tips on sex scenes.

There's some basic stuff in the book on point of view and how to build your plot.

She wraps it up with some advice on how to edit, and how to submit.

I've read a lot of stuff on how to write romances, and this is without doubt THE book to read to learn what a romance is, and more importantly, what a romance isn't. If you want to hook romance readers you have to respect the genre, and this book shows you how to do it.
