    I began to read this book because the title promised fun And it was funny, but theI read theI grew suspicious she could mean what she writes until in the end I recognized she really did That was still funny and maybe even funnier than a deliberately written persiflage But the best collection of jokes gets boring when all the jokes have the same punch line And even if you are a hard boiled cynic you will worry that some of her readers and wannbe writers will take her seriously I began to read this book because the title promised fun And it was funny, but theI read theI grew suspicious she could mean what she writes until in the end I recognized she really did That was still funny and maybe even funnier than a deliberately written persiflage But the best collection of jokes gets boring when all the jokes have the same punch line And even if you are a hard boiled cynic you will worry that some of her readers and wannbe writers will take her seriously and try to write stories she recommends her readers to write The most pathetic part is her good example of a conversation with double entendre and subtext from her own opus magnus Harlequin Blaze Quote from her novel And I am very good at what I do Explanation in the Guide Leo s comment about being very good at what he does serves as a double entendre, as it could refer to his profession or to his skills in bed p 169 170 So subtle So double So entendu.But there are some practical advices too On p 193 she tells her readers they should reconsider before they call a penis the purple helmeted warrior of love Instead you always should refer to these parts as Billy and the Boys

    There s good stuff in here I took the time to read it from cover to cover, and found plenty of advice to put into practice even if some of it was repetitive However, I wish Alison Kent hadn t focused exclusively on M F relationships Gay and lesbian romances scored an off hand mention in her book, but little else Ditto for poly These may be niche markets, but I thought they deservedthan a passing nod.

    What I did not like about the book It does mostly telling It has few examples It lists off what is expected of novel writing in general and romantic novels specifically I would have preferred in text examples were used to show me what the author was discussing Instead if any examples were mentioned they are in the author s other books Don t assume readers know exactly what is being referenced What I liked about the book It delves into the addition of sex and romance in the story structure What I did not like about the book It does mostly telling It has few examples It lists off what is expected of novel writing in general and romantic novels specifically I would have preferred in text examples were used to show me what the author was discussing Instead if any examples were mentioned they are in the author s other books Don t assume readers know exactly what is being referenced What I liked about the book It delves into the addition of sex and romance in the story structure A fewexamples here than in the rest of the book, but only one comparison is usually given It does point you in the direction of other books that could help with plot and other writing issues It contains a few other outside the book resources I plan on checking them out My Thoughts If you aren t sure writing erotica or romance is for you, this may help you decide If you are a brand new never written fiction or wish to understandabout romance and erotica mechanics then this may benefit you

    I really enjoyed this guide, and definitely found it useful I picked it up just as I was starting to go through my final spit and if you read around the genre a lot that s probably true but presumably that s why it s The Complete Idiot s Guide and not The Lifelong Expert s Guide I really enjoyed this guide, and definitely found it useful I picked it up just as I was starting to go through my final spit polish draft, and it helped me catch a few little niggles that I might otherwise have overlooked I ve seen a fair few reviews where people complain that a lot of the info here is common sense, or obvious and if you read around the genre a lot that s probably true but presumably that s why it s The Complete Idiot s Guide and not The Lifelong Expert s Guide And even if a lot of it might seem obvious, it s always good to have a handy reminder nearby I don t know about you, but I found when writing a novel that there were so many things to remember all at once, that a quick and straightforward reference guide on my desk definitely wasn t something I was going to complain about I found it well written, easy to read, and definitely of value


  8. Shannon Mayer Shannon Mayer says:

    I could never get past the first 30 pages or so, I think mostly because the author was working through the basics of writing as much as anything and I ve read a lot of books on that I will keep the book and use it for a reference though for those times that I write a love scene There are good tidbits, it s just not a book for those who have already done some research and have already gone beyond step 1 of honing their craft.

    I learned so much from this book It really helped me to understand the definitions and standards expected by various publishers The end of the book has a great list of publishers and other helpful tools for the newest authors I think the most important lessons I learned from this book were, research and just write already I recommend this book to anyone who is a little fearful but has a story that they just need to get out.


  10. Maddie Lowman Maddie Lowman says:

    There were one or two good tidbits here and there, and I m sure the list of resources at the back in the Appendices will be useful, but overall this book was simply a VERY basic overview of everything in the genre it didn t go in depth about any one thing, and really didn t give any useful tips that anyone other than people who haven t written anything before could use Three stars because obviously a lot of work went into it, and it did have a couple good points, but it just wasn t enough.
