Kim asked Zoe Archer:

Any tips for the wanna-be romance authors out there?

Zoe Archer Three things--the first is read. Read a ton. That's the best way to get a feel for what's out there, what resonates with you, and what doesn't work. Secondly, join the Romance Writers of America. It's a great organization geared towards advancing writers in their careers with tons of useful information, support, and guidance. Third, and most important, is to write. The only way you can move from a "wanna be" to "author" is to do it. Every day. Make a schedule. Stick to it. Let other people read it. An unread manuscript can't become a book.

Hope that helps!
