Packing an Emotional Punch: How to Write a Romance Novel with Amy Andrews

Packing an emotional punch is at the heart of all romance writing. Keeping readers in suspense, creating characters that engage their hearts and making them care even though a happily ever after ending is inevitable are the secrets to writing a good romance novel, says Amy Andrews, Australian Romance Author. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Amy has written over fifty novels and sold millions of romances, so it was only natural for me to seek her out and garner a few tricks of the romance writing trade. The problems that Amy sees when she edits a writer’s manuscript include stories that start in the wrong place, too much backstory and introspection and overwriting. The good news is all stories are fixable with a bit of help. You can find out more about Amy’s manuscript assessment service, Word Witchery; Story Solutions for Genre Writers, here.
