    Love makes the world go round, and of all the genres in fiction, romance, with its many sub-genres, is the most popular. 
    Perhaps you've wondered whether you can write it. 
    You're not sure what kind of romances to write. You can write steamy romances -- even outright erotica. If steamy romance fiction isn't your style, you can opt to write sweet and tender romances; the choice is always yours. 
    Here's the most important factor in writing romance: heart. Readers read romance to escape. All fiction is entertainment; romance fiction is driven by emotion, more than anything else. 
    In this book we cover: 
    * How to get started writing romance fiction; 
    * How to enjoy writing it; and  
    * How to sell your romances. 
    I started my writing career as a romance novelist. I adore the genre, and I hope that this book will inspire you on your own journey to becoming a successful romance author.

    Romance is everywhere even in blockbuster movies like Terminator and Star Wars. Strong romantic plots drove TV shows like Castle, Moonlighting, and Cheers to top ratings. It was the sexual tension that viewers to tuned in each week to find out if this would be the episode they finally acted on their attraction or not. Twitter blew up when Sheldon and Amy finally kissed on The Big Bang Theory, then blew up all over again when they consummated their relationship.
    
     
    Writing romance and sex can be tricky. You’re not writing a how-to manual after all. In this book you’ll learn how to create sexual tension, how to write sex scenes, and how to plot a romance that will have readers staying up until the wee hours to finish and closing your novel on a happy sigh.
