    How to Write a Paranormal Romance Step One Create a SueThis is a female lead that can either be a Mary Sue a Jerk Sue or a Sympathetic Sue Just an FYI most writers go with a Mary as the ideal of women remaining virgins until they find “The One” is allegedly still vastly appealing to the masses I suggest creating a heroine that’s never even been attracted to a man before It makes it seem like it's fate when she meets the male lead and less like you’re trying to shove antiquated beliefs down your reader’s throats Step Two Create a Ragebeast Your male lead should be over six feet tall have dark hair tattoos and so much testosterone inflated muscle that he has to walk through doors sideways The less he talks the better In every scene that you’re tempted to give him dialogue instead make him brood over something You’re going for caveman here modern women don’t want a partner that can communicate feelings or sympathize with emotions We just want someone who can bench press twice our body weight If you really want to make us swoon make him a prince too or an uber alpha or a frigging king That will fulfill the Princess Fantasy that half of us are infected with thanks to those assholes over at Disney Step Three Make these two the exception to each other’s rules Emotionally cripple the male He shouldn’t believe in love Not until he sees your Mary Sue When he finally lays eyes on her however you can take that caveman frown and turn it upside down I suggest blaring Foreigner’s I Wanna Know What Love Is on repeat while writing this scene as it will really help you capture the emotion your readers should be feeling at this point And remember that lack of attraction to the opposite sex you’ve afflicted Mary with? Well when she lays eyes on your beast of a male lead her va jay jay should turn into the river Nile Step Four The shmushing together of squishy bitsSex Add it Lots of it On a bed in the bathroom of a club a stairwell an alleyway you get the drift Just know that the you mix it up the better Repetition is the bane of the sex scene’s existence Also we’d really appreciate it if you could avoid using these phrases 1 Slippery juices • This brings up safety concerns2 Clenching womb • She’s having sex not a baby3 Pulsating sausage • I like breakfast cooked thanks4 Squelch • I shouldn’t have to explain this one Step Five Don’t forget the mysteryAs tempting as it may seem you can’t just fill up three hundred pages with nothing but relationship angst because if you do I WILL people may hate you You’ll want to add in an actual plot line to avoid that Don’t worry it’s not as hard as it sounds Make up a creepy crawly bad guy have him kill some innocent people and maybe torture a kid or rape someone and your readers will immediately hate him and get behind your MCs and their fight for ‘good’ You don’t even have to get that heavy with it In fact you can probably squeeze it in between your gymnastic inspired sex scenes Step Six Climax the literary kindHave the bad guy kidnap the heroine Feel free to let him slap her around a little and hint at the terrible things he’s going to do to her but don’t get too carried away here as you may offend those with delicate sensitivities Just before the villain can carry out these dastardly plans have the hero save your Mary Sue What? Well yes that’s a little damsel in distress ish but trust me on this everyone else is doing it too and no one’s complaining about it yet You want readers or not lady? Step Seven HEAs they’re not just for fairy tales and contemporary romancesEnd your book on a high note Your readers don’t want cliffhangers or dead male leads They want to see a white dress or a bad guy with coins on his eyes because your ragebeast eviscerated him before rescuing the heroine and taking her back to his ‘lair’ to bang the hell out of her regardless of her emotional mental or physical bruises One plus of going light on the plotline like I suggested is that it makes it easy to wrap things up in a nice little bow You’re welcomeOkay so this all sounds rather critical and it is I'm sure you're wondering So why the four stars? Well in my opinion this author takes all the themes I've mentioned and does them well which makes for one entertaining and sexy readBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest
