About the Event

Want to throw a winning touchdown?

Sports romance is considered one of the few perennial, “evergreen” tropes in publishing. Other fads in romance can come and go, but sports romance remains strong and viable. But what makes a great sports romance? What if you don’t know anything about sports? Can you still write a killer sports romance? Absolutely.

Put together a solid game plan.

But featuring an athlete isn’t enough. Let’s take a deep dive into the genre as a whole, what works, what doesn’t, and what makes it shine. Learn how to turn your book into a sports romance that the reader, sitting on the very edge of their seat, can’t put down.

Score the go-ahead goal.

Writing a great book isn’t enough these days. You’ve got to have follow-through, in your marketing. Learn what makes for great sports romance marketing, the do’s and don’ts, and some other key tips for making sure your book stands out from the crowd.
