Overview

In this one-of-a-kind resource, you'll find more than a list of tropes or broad genre fiction advice.

The Romance Writer's Encyclopedia Series breaks down our method for categorizing tropes into four types of framework tropes - Character Tropes, Situational Tropes, Setting Tropes, and Relational Tropes.

The Character Tropes Encyclopedia includes detailed entries on favorite romance tropes like Cowboys, Royalty, Law enforcement, and Athletes. And we didn't forget popular modern tropes like Alpha Male, Cinnamon Roll, or The Grump!

But this is more than a trope list - it's an encyclopedia!

Each encyclopedia entry includes an introduction to the trope itself, as well as information on why readers love the trope (including examination of what inner desire is being met by the trope), what expectations exist in the stories, common pitfalls that authors need to avoid, common characteristics and potential wounds.

Putting a cowboy hat on the cover of your book isn't enough to have a Cowboy romance that readers will love - but we'll tell you what will. And then we'll do it for Pirates and Rockstars and Firefighters, too.

Romance Character Tropes is designed to be used at every stage of planning, writing, and publishing your books. If used effectively, it will help you write a romance that readers will love, but also help you market that book to get it into the hands of readers who will devour it.

We've studied thousands of books and movies, polled readers and studied the market to understand not just which Character Tropes work - but WHY they work. And knowing why they work means you can put them to work for you.

Harness the power of Character Tropes to make your book marketable, multi-dimensional, and satisfying, so readers will come back again and again.
