Guide To Writing Friends To Lovers

Here you will find some tips, some advice and other stuff to hopefully help you in writing your friends to lovers romance!

Don’t forget the roots! It’s a friends to lovers romance after all, so try and make the friendship a big part of the story. The friendship is the upclimb where the conflict and tension builds, so don’t ignore the friendship aspect. Find a way to establish a friendship that is unique. Avoid ‘love at first sight’ and try to create a different kind of connection. Do they have a routine they follow when they are together? Did it start off as playful banter or jokes turned compassion? 

Awkward is okay. Let’s face it, how can anyone go from being friends to lovers without there being a little awkwardness in between. But, it is up to you to choose the kind of awkward. Whether it be cute, sexy ,or comedic depends on how you built the characters. 

Make the reader care. Off the bat the reader doesn’t want to already think everything will work out between the two characters. Hint at the beginning the connection between the characters, but don’t give them a full on romance from the start. Trust your reader to pick up on the little things, and let there be some doubt- a risk involved where the two characters might not be able to work it out.  

These are just a few tips and some helpful advice to get the ball rolling on your friends to lovers romance. Please share any additional tips you may have! And check out some of our authors’ very own friends to lovers novels to give you some inspiration!

Happy Friday!

Bring Out Your Wild Side With a Shapeshifter Romance

If you prefer a little growl with your romance, then look no further. Experience the dark side of the moon in these shifter romance books! While animal instincts and natural raw behaviors may not be what you want in your real-life partner – doesn’t mean you can’t drool over them in a book. 

Do you want to write the next hot shapeshifter romance? Harness the power of the moon and get to it! When writing in this specific category of paranormal romance here are a few guidelines to go off of:

Dive deeper into the sensory realm – readers want to embrace the wild side!

Do your research! – what paranormal animals do you want to use, and what special abilities do they have amongst others?

How will the character be different in human form? – What traits will make them stand out?

Story line, story line, story line! – It is very important to identify the origin story! How were the shifters created? Who was the first one? How do they reproduce? Etc. 

Writing is work! Especially when building a complex and dynamic world. But you can do it, don’t be afraid to put your mind to the test!

Reading Recommendations For Your Next Full Moon

Cash In With Your Own Billionaire Romance – With Recs!

The world of Christian Grey has opened and created an entire universe of billionaire hunks in the romance department (but we all know millionaire or financially stable hunks will also do the trick). If you are thinking about, or already started writing your own next billionaire must read then let’s find out how to make that happen!

The appeal is already there. A character who is highly successful, but lacks the personal life of a ‘nice guy’. Now in most cases the billionaire is male, but there’s no saying you can’t switch it up. That is a whole other door waiting to be opened! 

But back to the what’s what. 

There is more often than not the Cinderella story in this array of romance. The hero has financial security, and tends to offer the heroine security of some sort. That security often ranges somewhere from a business arrangement of getting down and dirty, some form of employment, or the heroine has some family member they have to save. 

Now here comes the nitty gritty. We don’t want a hero that we hate from the start with too much macho. Tension between the hero and heroine is always a plus, but try and stray away from too much of one trait. While the book can be focused on the financials of the hero, money shouldn’t be the main factor for the romance. We need more! The love, passion, secrets and everything that comes with it. Handing stacks of cash up front is an easy game to play. Now throw in an exciting cover and you’re good to go!

Happy Writing

Read Then Watch – Books Turned to Television

Stuck in? While there are many things you can do with your time, here is one of my favorites! Read a book and then watch the television adaptation- you can read and watch at your own pace or you can easily fill a day or two or three with this activity. 

On Netflix

Read then watch how agents attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. People who are fond of criminal and detective shows/books this one is right up your alley!

On Netflix

This one is probably the most known adaptation on Netflix, with a whopping 7 seasons! Follow Piper Kerman on her prison adventure along with several other inmates. They do their best to retain some shred of humanity and identity in a system built to take it away. 

On Netflix

We can all recognize that this mystery-solving show will be about the best detective that ever lived. This show will add a modern and spicy twist to the original by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. 

On Netflix

 You might have seen this show as it took to social media by storm. This twisted series is definitely binge watch worthy, if you are into psychological thrillers. 

On Hulu

Dive into a world that could have been. Where you are divided to provide based on social standing and health and the only hope is to bare children. 

These are simply some of my favorites but believe me there’s more! Reading and then watching the show is a great way to expand your mind and creativity! Develop your own world while reading and then see how others interpreted it on the screen. 

Happy Reading!

Book Inspired Vacations

Wherever you are in the world make sure you take the necessary time for yourself! Here on the east coast it is getting warmer each day, which means everyone will be planning their summer vacations! In order to stay on theme for this blog, we have come up with several must do vacations for all you book lovers out there, check them out!

Romeo and Juliet in Verona

Take a trip to Italy and explore what is arguably Shakespeare’s most famous work. Verona still has historic places that were standing during the story of the doomed lovers in the 16th century. Juliet’s balcony is the epitome of the locations and Verona remains a tourist destination for this reason.

Sherlock Holmes’ in London

Sherlock Holmes, along with his sidekick Watson, spent many stories in the streets of Victorian London looking for clues and suspects. Take a trip to England and walk through some of the same cobblestone streets and narrow lanes of Homes’ era. 221B Baker Street is now a museum, and you can also take a Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour to learn some more on the spot facts.

Lord of the Rings in New Zealand

Take a trip to where most of The Lord of the Rings was filmed. At more than 150 locations across New Zealand, there are many tour options to fit your needs. This dreamy destination could inspire anyone!

Outlander in Scotland

Get transported to your favorite Outlander location in Scotland on an Outlander tour! Walk in the footsteps of Jamie and Claire into Castle Leoch and on the cobbled streets of Cranesmuir. And let’s not forget about the standing stones!

Next time you’re planning your vacation maybe you can take your favorite book with you!

Reread Your Favorite Books!

Some people could not fathom picking up the same book twice, but I have a few reasons why you should!

They give us comfort. 

Reread one of your favorite books to feel the same emotions you felt the first time. There is a reason why it’s your favorite, it felt good to read. 

The movie adaptation is coming out. 

I do this over and over again. I read the book but it is turning into a movie, so I need to brush up on the book to make sure they stick to the roots!

You’re older. 

You read the book as a kid, or for required reading and you want to give it another go. 

You missed it the first time.

You read a book thinking it would open your mind to something new but you didn’t quite get there…but you should read it again to explore new possibilities.

Family/Personal traditions. 

Maybe you have or want to start a tradition where you read the same book every year or so to reflect a special time in your life. 

You know all the facts.

It is great to reread a murder mystery when you already know who did it! Find out all those clues from a different perspective.
