January Meeting

DJONES002-2Darynda-JonesNew York Times best selling author Darynda Jones gave an informative hour-long workshop via Connect that the participants have since entitled “Don’t Grab…Seduce: The Importance of a Strong Beginning for Romance Writers” (video archived and available for PLRW members).
Using examples from literary fiction, romance fiction and various popular films, Darynda explained the various techniques a writer can employ to win the empathy of the reader toward their character(s) in the first few pages. With both an insight and sense of humor worthy of Charley Davidson, her urban fantasy heroine, this author definitely succeeded in seducing a group of romance writers who were eating out of the palm of her hand by the time her talk was finished.Darynda-Jones
