For Writers – Virna DePaul

**Note: Love Writing was published before I began my journey into Indie publishing. In my opinion, it is still very relevant about the CRAFT of writing, but the information on the publishing industry/business side of things needs to be revised/removed. I will be working on a revised version or I might simply depublish this book soon due to my heavy writing schedule and inability to get to the revisions as soon as I    want to. 🙂  I am also working on getting my writing cheat sheets posted on the new website. Thank you and happy reading/writing!


Written by National Bestselling Author Virna DePaul (, and USA Today Bestselling Author Tawny Weber (, "Love Writing" is a comprehensive resource intended to benefit both new and experienced writers. Although geared toward romance writers, the book can help writers of genre fiction in general.

With a blend of humor, optimism, and realism, the book discusses ten critical writing concepts, as well as a step-by-step method for writing one's story. It also provides an unflinching look at the perils of pursuing publication and deconstructs a published romantic suspense book, "You Only Love Twice," by Lori Wilde (focusing on theme, synopsis, turning points, scene and sequel, etc). 

Finally, the book defines terms and answers frequently asked questions, provides tips and worksheets to make the writing process easier, and focuses on the details of the authors' writing journeys and what they learned over several years. 

Both practical and inspiring, the book encourages writers to pursue their passion without attempting to diminish the challenges they will face.
