Pow! Bam! Thud! Fun stuff for comic strips but potentially cartoonish when it comes to commercial genre fiction. Yet today’s readers—raised on explosive movies and violent video games—often crave the same kind of excitement in a book. So how can a writer deliver action that feels real? Learn how to perfect your techniques with former private detective (yeah, she really did carry a badge and a gun for ten years) and award-winning science fiction romance author Linnea Sinclair, whose novels deliver—according to reviewers: “…riveting, tightly written, edge-of-your-seat tales that pull the reader in from page one, never letting go… Sinclair whips her characters through a story that is as exciting and action- packed as it is passionate… Quirky, offbeat and packed with gritty action, this blistering novel explodes out of the gate and never looks back.” Sinclair will take students through lessons in pacing, word choice, and research that will add “edge-of-your-seat” action to their manuscripts. Sign up and get ready to rumble!
