SummaryAdd elements of romance to your fiction manuscript.
DescriptionLearn how romantic attraction between characters can be used to add dimension to conflict and raise the stakes in the plot while avoiding the common pitfalls that elicit reader groans (and not the good kind). Come prepared to troubleshoot your work with short writing exercises designed to help round out characters and deepen their interactions.

Jasmine Silvera is the author of the Grace Bloods romantic urban fantasy series, including the novels "Death’s Dancer," "Dancer’s Flame" and "The Talon and the Blade." Silvera is the pen name of writer and editor Rashida J. Smith. She is on the Clarion West board of directors.
