What:  Paranormal: Brainstorming to Revision -- Presented by Angela Knight

Angela Knight discusses the techniques she uses to brainstorm, plot, write and revise a 50-page erotic paranormal romance short story. She dissects each step of the process in detail so you can feel confident using the same techniques to write your own books. She also explains how to use the same principles to write a novel of any length. In the series of lessons, she covers characterization, the creation of romantic, internal and external conflicts, and how to write fiction that excites readers and editors alike.

Speaker Information: 
Angela Knight is the New York Times bestselling author of books for Berkley, Red Sage, Changeling Press, and Loose Id. Her first book was written in pencil and illustrated in crayon; she was nine years old at the time. A few years later, she read The Wolf and the Dove and fell in love with romance. Besides her fiction work, Angela's publishing career includes a stint as a comic book writer and ten years as a newspaper reporter. Several of her stories won South Carolina Press Association awards under her real name. In 1996, she discovered the small press publisher Red Sage, and realized her dream of romance publication in the company's Secrets 2 anthology. She went on to publish several more novellas in Secrets before editor Cindy Hwang discovered her work there and asked her if she'd be interested in writing for Berkley. Not being an idiot, Angela said yes. Angela lives in South Carolina with her husband, Michael, a polygraph examiner and hostage negotiator for the county's Sheriff's Office. The couple have a grown son, Anthony.
