Amore and More!

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 17 at Dusenberry-River Branch Library, 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!

Featured authors include Denise Agnew, Laurie Schnebly Campbell, Elaine Charton, Michael Charton, Georgina Devon, Judy Duarte, Mary Tate Engels, Roz Denny Fox, Patricia Knoll, Jill Knowles, Sherrill Quinn, Vicki Lewis Thompson and Kathleen Wells.

If you're in Tucson, make sure to come to these great workshops! Today you'll have the opportunity to listen to and pick the brains of NYT best seller Vicki Lewis Thompson, Patricia Knoll and Kathleen Wells.

My panel is on January 31st, so mark your calendars now!

Doesn't it though? LOL Thanks, Colleen. The one I went to this past Saturday was well-attended (about 65 people), so I'm hoping my day will be good, too.
