Amore and More! Again

Amore and More! Romance Writers Tell All

Does a ripped heart trump ripped abs? Discover the mouth-drying, heart-thumping world of the modern romance at one of four Amore and More! writing workshops sponsored by the Pima County Public Library - just in time for Valentine's Day!

These free, two-hour workshops from 1-3 p.m. January 31 at Himmel Park Branch Library, February 14 at Mission Branch Library and February 28 at Nanini Branch Library will whet your appetite for the Tucson Festival of Books in March.

Published authors from the Saguaro Romance Writers, the Tucson Chapter of Romance Writers of America®, share the secrets of the romance novel's sizzle. These award-winning writers give new meaning to that titillating phrase, Snap, Crackle, Pop!

Dip into the world of the sensuous sentence and the vivacious verb and learn what romance writing is all about. Don't forget that romance fiction generated $1.375 billion in sales in 2007!

If you're in or near Tucson, make sure to come to these great workshops! My panel is next Saturday--one week from today! (And yes, I'm already starting to get nervous...) Our topic: It's Not Your Mother's Romance Anymore--learn how romance novels have changed over the years. What are the various sub-genres under the greater romance umbrella? How do they differ from each other? E-books and print formats. And lots more!

Join me and authors Laurie Schnebly Campbell and Jill Knowles on January 31st at 1:00 at the Himmel Park Branch Library.
