I picked this up at the library and thought it might be a fun refresher. The information is a little rudimentary and I think better tailored to new writers or writers new to romance, but I did find the chapter on plotting to be pretty useful.

Josephine Myles Hi Kate - thanks for the friendvite! I keep meaning to read your books because I hear so many good things about them, but being a Brit I'm mystified by baseball. Actually, I'm mystified by cricket too, so that's no excuse :)
