Learn How To Write Romance In A Snap!

Any additional comments?

When the book says that romance is the most lucrative self-publishing genre of them all, they aren't joking. However, like anything else that gets popular, the romance genre is swollen to bursting with half-baked, or downright bad novels.

Don't nip your reputation in the bud by pushing out a piss-poor project. This book is currently teaching me how to write my first romance novel and it really couldn't be easier!

So whether you just want to impress your friends, or whether you want to become an award winning author, resources like this are here for you!

Wonderful Guide to Writing Romance

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting guide to writing romance. Ms Bancroft covers everything you could think of when it comes to preparing yourself to enter the world of romance novels and I learnt so many key ideas specific to the genre.

From advice on choosing the correct romance sub-genre to creating a great heroine and hero it is invaluable for aspiring writers. The way the author teaches you how to set perfect romantic outlines like the first meeting, break-up and resolution is must-read material.

The best part though is where you learn how to build sexual tension with your words and write love scenes. The author is so descriptive and helpful with her advice as she takes you through the steps.

A perfect guide to writing romance stories and an invaluable resource for writers.
