Speaker: Eva Leigh

Join Regency-set romance author Eva Leigh as she shares her love of the ’80s music and movies and two fabulous workshops that draw on the concepts and techniques used in her Union of the Rakes series, where she effectively draws on traditional rom-com tropes to tell stories about less well-known aspects of Regency England, and her London Underground series which explored the darker corners of the period and the lives of criminals, sex workers and smugglers.

Love On the Tropes: Using Tropes to Build Your Writing and Readership

This workshop explores how to take beloved romance tropes to create compelling stories, and to keep your readers coming back for more.

Strong With Heart: Writing Kick-Butt, Relatable, and Complex Characters
