What is the definition of Inspirational romance? A sweet story? An element of faith? A character type? What about S-E-X in Inspirational romance? In this class weâ€™ll take a look at the qualities found in Inspirational stories. Weâ€™ll delve into what comprises the various genres within the Inspirational market: contemporary, historical, romantic suspense, etc.
Weâ€™ll look at the element of faith to see what that means and if there is a standard amount expected in your story. Weâ€™ll look at examples, and you will be able to share some of your work, if you choose, to see if your manuscript fits the market.
