Hannah Howell, New York Times and USA Today Bestseller, has been published for twenty-six years. She now has two Historical Romance series published by Kensington books. The 20th book in the Murray series set in medieval Scotland came out in December of last year. The other series is the Wherlockes, set in eighteenth century England. If He’s Noble, the sixth book in the Wherlocke series will be out in September
In this workshop, Hannah will speak on the importance of the words you use in your writing. How the change of one simple verb can take your sentence from adequate to powerful. Or how you can give the reader a good picture of a character with just a few well-chosen words instead of pages of description. Even how the use of such things as simile and metaphor can add texture and depth. A story has a plot and characters you hope will catch a reader’s attention but it is the words you use that will hold it fast. There will be handouts and book recommendations.
