A romance novel turns on several key scenes not found in other genres, namely, the Meet, the First Intimacy, Mid-point, Big Black Moment, and Denouement. Well intentioned CPs, knowledgeable writing coaches, and even our editors don’t always grasp how these scenes work in a romance setting, as opposed to how their counterparts work generally or in other genres. Get the benefit of Grace’s experience as an award-winning author, workshop lurker, and avid craft reader, so that your scenes not only keep the novel moving, but grab the reader by the heart. This 45-90 minute presentation works well at writers’ conferences of any size.
