Writing a romantic suspense is like trying to juggle while walking between two skyscrapers on a high wire. This workshop will explore ways to make sure you don’t drop any balls or tumble to the street below.

Discussions will relate to both the romance and mystery genres in general, as well as using them to craft a romantic suspense novel.

This workshop will discuss:
  • Definition of Romantic Suspense
  • Choosing your sub-genre
  • Romance and Mystery Reader Expectations
  • Plot considerations.
  • Characters, including Goals, Motivation, and Conflict
  • Stakes for hero and heroine
  • Foreshadowing to avoid convenient coincidences
  • Setting
  • Pacing. Keeping the reader turning pages.
  • Sexual Tension, including the 12 Steps to Intimacy. Does the romance have to include sex?
