Beyond Research: Stronger POV and the Effective Use of Detail

with Carrie Lofty

Blurb: Everyone knows a good romance author does her homework. But how do you integrate juicy details into a steamy, compelling, tear-jerking novel? How much detail is enough? What to keep and what to ditch? And how do those details enhance character point of view? This course will cover key aspects of melding research and fiction. Although designed and taught by a recovering historian, this interactive course will be geared toward any kind of research, and how detail can make every story more memorable and more emotional

Bio: Born in California and raised in the Midwest, Carrie Lofty found the love of her life in England . Her work has been praised as "inventive" (Dear Author), "shattering" (Nights & Weekends), and "intelligent" (Smart Bitches). Her debut, WHAT A SCOUNDREL WANTS (Zebra: 12/08), is the hot, adventurous tale of Will Scarlet and his dangerous lady love. The sequel, SCOUNDREL'S KISS (Zebra: 01/10), pits a Spanish warrior monk against the troubled English translator he's sworn to protect. Carrie writes fulltime, guides two precocious daughters through their elementary years, and manages the authors of Unusual Historicals (http://unusualhistoricals.blogspot.com), a blog she founded in 2006.
