You love romance, right?
Come on. You love romance. And kissing. Kissing is the best!
If you do love kissing and romance, you should know that the Utah RWA has asked me to teach a four-week online class about how to write sexual and romantic tension! Yay! I taught this class at the LDStorymakers conference in 2015 and it went extremely well. Here’s the description:
Great stories can be written without romance, but for goodness’ sake, why? Romance transcends genre boundaries, adding sparks to everything from epic fantasy to gritty thrillers. One of the keys to a breathtaking love story is sexual tension, but writers often find themselves at a loss when deciding how much is too much (or too little). In this class, learn about the different levels of sexual and romantic tension and how to write it so readers root for your characters’ relationships and fan themselves with the pages of your novel.
This isn’t just for romance writers, it will work for anyone who wants to beef up the romance or sexual tension in their writing! Adult or Young Adult, fantasy/sci-fi to thrillers, it applies across the board.
The class is $20 for RWA members and $25 for non-RWA members, and that’s for an entire month! Well, four weeks. Still, compared to the price of attending a writing conference or taking a college course, it’s a pretty great deal. Plus it’s online, so you can participate in your sweatpants from the comfort of your own home! I’m working hard to make sure everyone can get something from the course, from beginners to experienced, published authors. The class is independent study, so there won’t be a set time that you have to drop everything and attend (though I am toying with the idea of doing a few live videos so we can interact).
If you aren’t familiar with my and my qualifications, my name is Caitlyn McFarland. I’ve been reading romance novels since I was thirteen. Also, I have three fantasy/romance novels published with Carina Press, an imprint of Harlequin (you know, those people who publish the romances with Fabio on the cover). You can find those here and everywhere else ebooks are sold.

Do it. For the kissing.
