Sneak Peek Book Report

Yesterday the mail brought an ARC of the first chapter of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing an Erotic Romance. The timing couldn't have been better. I'm in the early stages of my third romance with erotic elements (and okay - an itty bitty suspense subplot).

Along comes Alison Kent, who knows how to do what I'm trying to master. Not with a steamy new novel to distract me and make me pine for her skills, but with a step by step guide on how to write. How cool is that?

Ms. Kent pulls no punches, hitting hard with sensible advice focused on task and leaves me gasping with the brilliance of it all.

Here's the meat of chapter one to whet your appetite:
  • Crafting characters who bring your story to life
  • Plotting the framework of your novel
  • Creating conflict that keeps readers reading
  • Understanding the push and pull of sexual tension
  • Keeping sight of the romance

Best of all she delivers the goods in the form of easily understood advice.

Now for the bad news, you have to put this illuminating information to work all by yourself. That aint easy. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing Erotic Romance gives you a truly useful DYI guide. Pre-order yours today!
