Some of the most successful romance writers in the world give insider advice on romance writing in this how-to guide edited by the author of The Art of Romance Writing Valerie Parv has drawn together a dream team of romance writers who each share their secrets to writing successful romance fiction. Robyn Donald writes on Changing with the Times, while Helen Bianchin discusses Latin Lovers and Others. Meredith Webber talks about the modern medical genre, and Elizabeth Rolls explores the fun to be had in research, by way of Regency romances. Erotic romance, fantasy romance, and suspense are all covered; Jennie Adams shares her foolproof editing system; and Daphne Clair explains why writing romance is "a feminist act." The questions most asked of published authors are all answered here, such as How do I make my characters live? My dialogue feels flat—how can I fix it? How did you begin writing romance novels? How do I make sure my book hits the right emotional heights? I don't have to edit my own work, do I? and Can I do anything to market my manuscript? Examples of writing to analyze with the help of the contributors are also provided, as well as lists of recommended reading and links to interesting and useful websites.
