It’s February–the month of LOVE, and as romance writers, we’ve got to do our part! Here are some ways (and dates) to remember this month to help you Fall in LOVE With Your WRITING!

Wed. Feb. 11: Is “Make a Friend” day–and making a friend with your same writing goals is key to your writing success! Sign up for a critique partner within SSRA and/or reach out to a new SSRA writer friend and help each other along on this lonely writer’s journey!

Log onto our SSRA Member’s Only Yahoo group, go into ‘Files’, then scroll down and click on ‘Genre Information.’ In this treasure trove of a file are several handouts from programs we’ve had in the past. One of the best ones for LOVE SCENES, is a handout created by a program speaker we hosted previously, erotic romance writer Evangeline Anderson. She gives us “12 Rules for Writing a HOT Love Scene” and with over 70 published erotic romances to her name (74, to be exact!!), this author knows her stuff!

Dylan Newton was born and raised in a small town in Upstate New York where the local library was her favorite hang-out. Despite earning a degree in English Literature, Dylan spent more than a decade sidetracked by an executive position in corporate America where she swears she contracted testosterone poisoning. After leaving, she dedicated herself to more estrogen-rich passions, like motherhood, writing romance novels and her never-ending quest for the perfect date night.

Dylan married her high-school sweetheart and they are busy living out their own happily ever after in sunny Florida with their two incredible daughters and a snoring Shiz-Tsu.
