    'If you've ever dreamed of writing a romance novel, then this is the insider's guide for you. Valerie Parv, author of the authoritative and bestselling The Art of Romance Writing, has drawn together a 'dream team' of romance writers who each share their secrets to writing successful romance fiction.

    Valerie and her co-contributors, Jennie Adams, Helen Bianchin, Daphne Clair, Lilian Darcy, Robyn Donald, Kelly Ethan, Alexis Fleming, Elizabeth Rolls and Meredith Webber - all successful romance writers whose books have appeared on international bestseller lists - answer the questions most often asked of published authors: how do I make my characters live; my dialogue feels flat - how can I fix it; how did you begin writing romance novels; how do I make sure my book hits the right emotional heights; I don't have to edit my own work, do I; can I do anything to market my manuscript, and many more.

    Aimed at both new and experienced writers studying the craft, this fascinating guide will give you everything you need to know about writing romance and getting published.' (Publisher's blurb)
