Romance is the number 1 selling genre in mass-market fiction with more than a billion dollars in sales each year. Many people read a romance and think, “I can do that!” only to discover that penning emotionally charged novels with a compelling plot is difficult.
A great romance makes you feel everything from the butterfly flutters of a new romance, the titillation of attraction, the angst of conflict and drama, the devastation of heartbreak, and the happiness of love ever after. Keeping that level of emotional intensity isn’t easy, but it’s crucial if your romance is going to captivate your reader through the meeting, the romance, the loss, and the commitment phase of your story.
In How to Write a Swoonworthy Romance, would-be romance authors will learn about the romance genre and get tips on how to write a romance that has readers swooning.
