I’m over at the SMP Author blog today talking about true love as it relates to conflict with our characters.

Anyone who’s ever been in love knows there are bumpy spots in the road of romance. Your fictional love stories are no exception. As writers of romance Shakespeare’s quote should be one thing we always remember when building our stories. We must make it hard for our hero and heroine to get together. The road has to be uncomfortable. The conflict has to be strong. And we must make them suffer.

So how can we make our characters suffer for the sake of love?  Come join me at the SMP Author Blog for a few tips ton how o make sure the course of true love never runs smooth in your books—at least until the end of the story.
