This new, inclusive guide to planning and plotting romance novels in the 21st Century is written by Vanessa Grant, the author of 32 published romance novels with over 10 million copies of her books sold. Vanessa has been translated into 15 languages and has presented writers' workshops in Canada, the USA, Australia, and New Zealand. Her iconic guide WRITING ROMANCE was originally published in 1997, went into subsequent editions in 2001 and 2007. Whether you're new to writing or a published author; whether you're a Plotter or a Panster, this new guide to plotting and planning romantic fiction demonstrates creative strategies for using your own personality and experiences to create powerful characters who evoke strong emotions in both you as the writer, and your readers. Romantic fiction has become more inclusive in the 21st century, reflecting a growing acceptance of the diversity of race, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Despite all these changes, the heart of romance remains unchanged. Romantic love features in almost all our fiction and in our ballads, poetry, movies, and dreams. Half of all paperbacks sold are romance novels, stories in which human individuals struggle to overcome the obstacles to their romantic love. The need to love and be loved is deeply embedded in our DNA and our brains. When we love and are loved, we become stronger and we live longer, forging bonds for a lifetime. Whatever kind of romance you want to write, and whether romance is the primary focus of your story or a sub-plot for your mystery, science fiction, fantasy, historical or futuristic novel - the 21st century is calling on you to create a story with characters readers can believe in; characters who are emotionally and psychologically true. Praise for previous editions of Vanessa Grant's Writing Romance ... "Essential for all aspiring romance writers." -- Jo Beverley, best-selling romance author. "It's by far the best writing book I've ever read. Five stars for Vanessa." -- The Writer's Markets Report, National Writers Monthly "Writing Romance is a kind of how-to-do-it-yourself romance writer's workshop under one cover and will reward the serious reader by [offering] helpful, practical advice so necessary to successfully break into print in the romance field. Highly Recommended!" - Midlist Book Review "Writing Romance is a thoroughly professional guide to a business that generates close to $1 billion a year." -- Canadian Book Review Annual

Nonfictional Romantic Prose: Expanding Borders surveys a broad range of expository, polemical, and analytical literary forms that came into prominence during the last two decades of the eighteenth century and the first half of the nineteenth. They stand in contrast to better-known romantic fiction in that they endeavor to address the world of daily, empirical experience rather than that of more explicitly self-referential, fanciful creation. Among them are genres that have since the nineteenth century come to characterize many aspects of modern life like the periodical or the psychological case study; others flourished and enjoyed wide-spread popularity during the nineteenth century but are much less well-known today like the almanac and the diary. Travel narratives, pamphlets, religious and theological texts, familiar essays, autobiographies, literary-critical and philosophical studies, and discussions of the visual arts and music all had deep historical roots when appropriated by romantic writers but prospered in their hands and assumed distinctive contours indicative of the breadth of romantic thought. SPECIAL OFFER: 30% discount for a complete set order (5 vols.).The Romanticism series in the Comparative History of Literatures in European Languages is the result of a remarkable international collaboration. The editorial team coordinated the efforts of over 100 experts from more than two dozen countries to produce five independently conceived, yet interrelated volumes that show not only how Romanticism developed and spread in its principal European homelands and throughout the New World, but also the ways in which the affected literatures in reaction to Romanticism have redefined themselves on into Modernism. A glance at the index of each volume quickly reveals the extraordinary richness of the series' total contents. Romantic Irony sets the broader experimental parameters of comparison by concentrating on the myriad expressions of “irony” as one of the major impulses in the Romantic philosophical and artistic revolution, and by combining cross-cultural and interdisciplinary studies with special attention also to literatures in less widely diffused language streams. Romantic Drama traces creative innovations that deeply altered the understanding of genre at large, fed popular imagination through vehicles like the opera, and laid the foundations for a modernist theater of the absurd. Romantic Poetry demonstrates deep patterns and a sharing of crucial themes of the revolutionary age which underlie the lyrical expression that flourished in so many languages and environments. Nonfictional Romantic Prose assists us in coping with the vast array of writings from the personal and intimate sphere to modes of public discourse, including Romanticism's own self-commentary in theoretical statements on the arts, society, life, the sciences, and more. Nor are the discursive dimensions of imaginative literature neglected in the closing volume, Romantic Prose Fiction, where the basic Romantic themes and story types (the romance, novel, novella, short story, and other narrative forms) are considered throughout Europe and the New World. This enormous realm is seen not just in terms of Romantic theorizing, but in the light of the impact of Romantic ideas and narration on later generations. As an aid to readers, the introduction to Romantic Prose Fiction explains the relationships among the volumes in the series and carries a listing of their tables of contents in an appendix. No other series exists comparable to these volumes which treat the entirety of Romanticism as a cultural happening across the whole breadth of the “Old” and “New” Worlds and thus render a complex picture of European spiritual strivings in the late eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries, a heritage still very close to our age.
