What is a “category romance” novel and what sets it apart from other romance novels? And why would anyone want to write one?
In this workshop, participants will learn about the ingredients necessary to craft an engaging, entertaining and effective category romance novel. These delicious, trope-and-hook heavy stories—which range from sweet to super sexy—follow established formulae that also allow room for plenty of author creativity, delivering readers the HEAs they want within the comforting framework of their favorite “category.”

We’ll learn how to identify a category romance, what goes into writing one, common mistakes to avoid, and try our hand at crafting a fantastic first page, an enticing first chapter, and discuss tips on breaking into the category romance market.

A weekly assignment will ensure that participants complete the workshop with not only a better understanding of category romances, but also ready to write one!
