Five Pro Tips for Research that Will Bring Your Historical Romance to Life

February 13 (12:00 PM EDT / 5:00 PM UK)

Presented by Susanne Dunlap

Writing a historical romance isn’t just a question of dressing your characters in costumes out of Pride and Prejudice. (Although who doesn’t love those costumes…) Avid readers of this sub-genre will expect a certain amount of historical accuracy not just in costume, but in manners, milieu, and many other little details.

In other words, you need to do some research. But how much? How do you know what’s important and what’s not? Where is it okay to invent things? And how do you weave it all into the story seamlessly, so the romance takes center stage rather than the research?

In this workshop, you’ll get tips and strategies for structuring and prioritizing your research, a list of web resources to lead you to what you need, and a worksheet with the five key details essential to creating a world that will immerse your readers.

An initial revision from the beginning to the end doesn’t allow you to see the overall picture. Join Author Accelerator certified book coach Rona Gofstein as she shows you how to use five key scenes so you can see what’s working and what’s not there yet. Discover a new process that emphasizes the pivotal moments in your story, enabling you to have a more significant impact on your book – in less time – and enhance your editing process.
