The Romance Writer's Handbook is a handy tool for the beginning romance writer. A brief introduction offers reasons for writing a romance novel and interesting tidbits about the genre. Following this, Gauthier leads the reader through 31 lessons designed to organize your thoughts on paper and build a solid foundation for your novel. Covering setting, characters, sensual descriptions and more, the lessons offer space to write your ideas and tips on how to outline your thoughts.
Gauthier's focus is on how to write your romance novel, not how to sell it to an editor, or market it to the public-because before you can do any of that, the book must be written. The exercises and activities in these pages can help any writer looking to transform thoughts into a complete, enjoyable story.
