A Fine Line Between Love and Death - How to Write Love Scenes

A Fine Line Between Love and Death - How to Write Love Scenes | Litteris | Scoop.it

As fantasy writers, we accept that certain elements are expected in our novels.  For example, the fight scene. Whether it’s an epic battle or a street duel, there’s going to be a fight somewhere. But what about love?

We Have To See Them Fall In Love

One of the hardest things about writing romance is not the intimate scenes in the bedroom, but the single thing that makes a romance a romance. The central story arc follows the development of the relationship of the hero and heroine from that initial meeting to the happily ever after. This seems like a relatively easy process, but if we want the story to do something, we can't exactly make it easy for them, can we? It is at this point that, for most writers, the relationship takes a backseat to the conflict and we fail to watch the romance grow.

Genre Fiction and Digital Publishing: A Marriage Made in Heaven

Genre Fiction and Digital Publishing: A Marriage Made in Heaven | Litteris | Scoop.it

Along with the continuing growth of digital publishing (numbers for 2012 showed a 44.2% increase over 2011) has come, according to Wired.com, an increased focus on so-called “genre” fiction – sci-fi, fantasy, mystery and romance. Markets, which Graeme McMillan points out, “have traditionally lagged behind ‘literary fiction’ in terms of sales.” [Editor's Note: We disagree with this assertion. Romance, in particular has always had strong sales and often dominates the fiction market in real terms.]
