Overview

Written by authors Virna DePaul (www.virnadepaul.com), and Tawny Weber (www.tawnyweber.com), "Love Writing" is a comprehensive new resource intended to benefit both new and experienced writers. Although geared toward romance writers, the book can help writers of genre fiction in general.
With a blend of humor, optimism, and realism, the book discusses ten critical writing concepts, as well as a step-by-step method for writing one's story.

It also provides an unflinching look at the perils of pursuing publication and deconstructs a published romantic suspense book, "You Only Love Twice," by Lori Wilde (focusing on theme, synopsis, turning points, scene and sequel, etc).

Finally, the book defines terms and answers frequently asked questions, provides tips and worksheets to make the writing process easier, and focuses on the details of the authors' writing journeys and what they learned over several years.

Both practical and inspiring, the book encourages writers to pursue their passion without attempting to diminish the challenges they will face.

ABOUT VIRNA:

Virna DePaul was an English Lit major who practiced law as a criminal prosecutor for over ten years. She began writing in September of 2006 and by January had a top-notch agent and editorial interest from a New York publishing house. Despite that grand beginning, it took her a little over three years to make her first sale. When she did, she sold the first two books in a paranormal series to Berkley Publishing (Penguin Group). The first book in the Para-Ops series, Chosen By Blood, launched in May 2011. Subsequently, she has written romantic suspense for Harlequin’s HRS category line, as well as its HQN line (the “Shades” trilogy).

Most recently, Virna sold a three-book paranormal romantic suspense series to Random House (watch out for the Belladonna series coming out in early 2014) and is a bestselling indie author in a variety of genres. She sold the Hungarian rights to her contemporary romance, Bedding The Wrong Brother, and her previously self-published “Red Hot Cops” erotic romance novellas have been reissued by Loveswept.
Virna has presented craft workshops for Romance Writers of America, in person and online. Her writing “cheat sheets” are currently published quarterly in the Romance Writers Report. Finally, she is a contributor to the HEA romance blog at USA Today.
