The info about proper manuscript set-up is worth buying this one.
I am not a "new" writer but haven't written romance until now. Looks like I chose a quality reference for the job!
I'm afraid many sub-par books are published every year about how-to-write. THIS one is not one of those!
The chapters entitled "Finding Your Voice" and "Imagery" were both excellent. They are very helpful to both new and experienced writers. I really liked Connie Flynn's chapter on paranormal romances. She made a couple of points that were salient to my writing.
I've got a bunch of how-to romance writing books, but I don't think I ever read one of them all the way through. It is simply written and the author makes her point and moves on. I recommend it highly to anyone wanting to write a romance.
I must confess that I did contribute a small article to the book. I did so knowing that Ms. Vinyard would put together a good book. I was not disappointed.
