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, sypsis, 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.
