Description
Romance novels are the biggest-selling genre in publishing, selling more books each year than mysteries and science fiction combined. Numerous romance authors appear regularly on the New York Times best-seller lists, and they often carry their romance audience over into the mainstream, and vice versa. Nora Roberts, Tami Hoag, Linda Howard, LaVryle Spencer, Sandra Brown, to name a few, all got their start in category fiction -- and they were all romance fiction readers who once said, "I wonder if I can do that".

CIG to Getting Your Romance Published, written by a successful romance novelist, teaches aspiring writers everything they need know about this popular, highly successful genre. From plotting characterization to approaching agents and editors, the book gives readers a head start toward publishing their own novels.
-- Love sells -- why those "little books" are so popular
-- The rules of romance writing -- respect the genre, focus on relationships, and more
-- The aspiring romance writer's checklist
-- The subgenres -- historical, contemporary, time-travel, futuristic, paranormal, multicultural
-- Finding your voice as a writer
-- Pacing checklist
-- Undercovers -- sex and the single (or married) writer
-- Punching up your prose -- editing and rewriting
-- Hiring an agent and finding an editor
-- Submitting your manuscript
-- Book covers and pseudonyms
-- Promotion tips

-- Romancing the publishing industry
