Tonight’s Third Thursday: Love Scenes and Love Stories at Book People


No matter what your genre or market, there’s a good chance that your work-in-progress has a romantic plot, subplot, or at least a sizzling or suggestive scene.  But how do you put romantic dialogue or action on the page without being cheesy or turning off your readers?

We’ll meet at 7pm at Book People on the third floor. Hope to see you there.
