Romantic suspense books remain as popular as ever. Who can resist a good mystery mixed with a torrid or delightful romance? But how do you write a story that will sell? What are the available genres and what are publishers looking for? How about your heroine and hero?

This class focuses on everything to do with romantic suspense. From constructing the plot, to coming up with a good hero and heroine to how to build suspense and mix in the romance, the class looks at all those fundamental elements. But there is more to writing romantic suspense. The mix must be just right and this class shows students how to make certain they don’t shortchange the mystery or ignore the romance. It also looks at the various genres and the current market for romance.

Becky shared so much information. I learned a lot about romantic suspense and I can't wait to go back and work on my story idea. Great class.
The lecture content was very good, and useful for me. I learned new information which spurred me to improve some aspects of the plot I had in mind for my next project. I was. however, disappointed by the lack of feedback on the homework. I'm not sure if Becky even saw them, as she mentioned technical difficulties a couple of times. A few teacher comments/insights here and there would have made this a 5/5.
The information was really robust and plentiful. So much so that I found it a bit hard to keep up with, but I definitely learned things! However, I signed up for the class because I was under the impression there would be regular feedback on the exercises we posted (like a class) not paragraphs of feedback, but something. It helps me with motivation, and to know I’m on the right track as I go, but after my introduction post, there was nothing. If I knew we’d be on our own, I would’ve just purchased a book to go through solo. At the end there was an invitation to send some writing to her, but it was a bit too little, too late for me. So information and content was a 5, class experience a not 5, sadly.
I enjoyed this class immensely and have been able to build a rough outline of my next book based on the lessons. The only thing I would have liked to have seen more of was a fuller discussion of red herrings and how and when to bring them in, how to use them to confuse the reader and how they might impact the turn of events for a mystery. There was some discussion of this, but not quite enough to really satisfy me.
Very much enjoyed the course! Just like with all courses savvyauthors has to offer, this one was exceptional!
