Summary

Have you ever had your romance manuscript rejected because it lacked romantic tension? Now there's The Romance Writers' Phrase Book, the first word book designed especially for romance writers everywhere. Arranged for quick, easy reference, it contains over 3,000 descriptive phrases, commonly known as "tags" - those short, one-line descriptions so skillfully tucked into dialogue and laced through the narrative that they usually escape notice. The reader may not see them, but they can always be felt. Tags, in fact, make the difference between a cold, factual report and an eager, pulsating, sensuous story. Now you too can add life and breath to any romantic novel. The Romance Writers' Phrase Book contains thousands of commonly used descriptive phrases and neatly organizes them into fifty easy-to-use categories including: Physical Descriptions (Male/Female), Body Movements, Facial Expressions, Eyes, Voices, Emotions, Sex, and more! Browse through these pages, allowing the examples to spur your imagination. Any way you use it, The Romance Writers' Phrase Book is guaranteed to make any romance manuscript a resounding success!
