What makes a great series romance?

You might already have seen this - but if you haven't, here are some wise words from Randall Toye, Director Global Series at Harlequin.

"The key focus is a good story, well told. The basic building blocks? Character, Structure, Pacing, Payoff. Easy to list. Not so easy to deliver. As one author beautifully articulated: "Just because they're easy to read doesn't mean they're easy to write!" Quite the opposite. The series romance, like a sonnet, is a beautiful, disciplined, elegant, and demanding creative form."

So there you go. The full article is here on Isabel Swift's blog - and there are a lot of other interesting posts there, too. Lots of food for thought...
