“Love is in the air, everywhere I look around. Love is in the air, every sight and every sound … ” Can you hear this song in your head when you think of romance stories? I know we can! Romance authors live and breathe the love that’s in the air all around them and they get inspired by it. Romantic love can be tender, sweet, delightful, sexy and more! Come join the conversation with our panel of romance authors and see what inspires them to write with such passion and emotion. They will discuss how they got started writing their stories and they will offer some insight on how you can get started writing your story as well.
