Whodunit? What’s Behind Door #1? Don’t Look Down!

The Thrill of Romantic Suspense or Suspenseful Elements in Your WIP.

Want to delve into the world of romantic suspense or want to add some suspenseful elements and tension to your WIP? Fantastic! We’ll break down the differences between romantic suspense and romance with suspenseful elements.  We’ll dig into how to start your romance off with a bang for romantic suspense and how to weave suspenseful elements into your WIP. We’ll also discuss the big no-no of writing a suspense, the responsibility of believability, research, and so much more.

Casey Clipper is an Amazon Top 100 Best-Selling Author of contemporary romantic suspense. She has released 15 novels of either romantic suspense or contemporary romance with suspenseful elements and has recently delved into paranormal romantic suspense. Casey often finds herself engulfed in detective documentaries as well as enrolled in too many law enforcement workshops. Yes, she totally believes in the Smiley Face Killers theory, so don’t be surprised if it ends up in her detective series.
