20 October Meet: Write a romance bestseller!

Maybe you have dreamed of writing a novel? Or love being swept up by a
heart-warming story?

As the evenings draw in there is nothing like snuggling up with a good book, so this month we have a bookish treat for you. Romance is in the air as Joanne Grant, Senior Editor at Harlequin Mills & Boon, is coming to talk to us about the in’s and out’s of series romantic fiction.

…Whether your ideal romantic heroine is Elizabeth Bennet or Bridget Jones, or you just can’t get enough of the sizzling chemistry between Edward and Bella or maybe you prefer the passionate romps of a Jilly Cooper novel – Mills & Boon have it all! As the number 1 Romance publisher, a Mills & Boon book is sold every 3 seconds in the UK.

Landing a job at Harlequin Mills & Boon was a dream come true for Jo – she’s an avid reader and hopeless romantic. Jo will talk to us about what it’s like to work at Romance HQ, the variety of books they publish and give us a writing masterclass to boot.

You don’t need to bring anything apart from your imagination. Be prepared to discuss delicious heroes, passionate kisses, electrifying will-they-won’t they moments and what it takes to write a page-turning Mills & Boon. It is definitely not one to miss.
