Here is a romance definition that most goes by. The plot of a romance centers around a couple that fall in love and have a “happily ever after” ending. This is a must; there are no exceptions. If your couple is not happily in love and together at the end of your book, it’s not a romance. It might be a love story (in which case, it would go under women’s fiction) but a romance has to have a "happily ever after." You can have subplots, but the main plotline must be about the couple’s romance. Now, there are so many subgenres to the Romance genre (many totally unique to romance) that I will do a separate post on these next week, so stay tuned.

We writers get advice that can sound repetitive: Build your platform, consolidate your brand, write what you know. While I am not about to tell you that you should be starting in on a book about, say, nuclear fission if you…See More
