Writing Sexual Tension Workshop

What is one of the best things about reading a great book with a couple? The sexual tension, of course!

It is that one thing that keeps me turning pages, anxious to see that first touch, to enjoy that first kiss, to experience that longing through the characters’ thoughts and feelings… *sigh*

So, how does that happen? How do you create sexual tension that is both believable and has the reader anxiously flipping pages?

If you have those questions, you are in luck!

ARWA members Sarah Kades and Lorraine Paton are co-teaching a Writing Sexual Tension workshop on Friday, August 9th, from 9am to noon. Although it is held in conjunction with the When Words Collide Conference, you do not have to sign up for the conference to register for this great workshop! The workshop is only $10 and will be packed full of useful information that will teach you how to heighten your readers’ satisfaction!

You can register here:

See you there!


Romantic Novelists’ Association Conference

From Diana:

I’m currently in the UK at the Romantic Novelists’ Association Conference and having a great time. Learning lots which I will share with ARWA members at our Thursday August meeting.

The opening session celebrated RNA members who had been published in the past year. I took note of the markets they sold to, so here is a list of the most popular ones. Some of the houses you might not be familiar with as most are British – or subsidiaries of US companies – but there’s a Canadian one in there too!

Accent Press
Harper Impulse
My Weekly Pocket Novels
