    Romance novels have plenty of love in them, right?
    Romantic love, yes, but there are wonderful opportunities to deepen your readers’ engagement by bringing in other kinds of love, too.
    We’ll explore other types of love that permeate our emotional lives and drive our actions. Include one or more of these in each story to give your characters more depth and create more opportunities for conflict, change, and growth.
    Plus you can introduce your readers to things, places, people, ideas, and more that you love.
    Categories include familial love, brotherly love, love of friends, love of self, love of country, love of deity, love of animals, love of art, love of money, love of power, love of nature, love of death and destruction.
    Lessons will look at the psychological background of each unique type of love, find examples in myth and stories, and give suggestions on how to weave this love into your works.
    Self-tests and optional writing assignments will help you ground the information and become even more adept at writing worlds of love into your romance novels.

    Storylines of love add spice and heart, no matter the genre or style. When well-written, the love aspect of a story lives on in the hearts and minds of your audience, long after “The End”.

    5/5,
    All positive: Extensive information on how to incorporate different kinds of love (love of family, of country, of animals, of art, etc.) in addition to romantic love into your manuscript. Detailed tips on symbols to use and themes to cover esp. at the Shining Action moment to improve your fiction. Great lists of books to read and movies to watch on the same topics, so lots to continue studying.For each lesson Ms. Smith also included an exercise for reflection and another for writing practice. These prompts really helped get me out of years of writers block. Very impressed with the course and recommend it highly. (Loved receiving the generous feedback from Ms. Smith, only wish she had had time to have commented on my final assignments). I truly thank Savvy Authors for this class, it was so much more than I ever expected. I'm so impressed with how the course pushed my interests and abilities in new directions.
