About This Workshop
You’ve had that problem before where you need to find out how a specific type of gun works for your romantic suspense or needed to find out if that one word was actually in use in Regency England. There’s always research involved in writing a convincing romance and the pitfalls of deep rabbit holes you might fall into as well. In this workshop, a psychologist and writer will teach you how to use a variety of resources from asking experts for interviews, library tricks and tips, as well as databases and deep journal and article research to create a better book. She’ll also work with you to ensure that you learn when to put the research down and plunge headfirst into the drafting so that you avoid being derailed by over-researching as well.
