So you want to write a paranormal romance. Where do you start? With World Building, of ourse. No easy task, but we hope to help. World Building is an all encompassing part of the aranormal. From characters to geography to weapons to social dynamics, to the creatures or magic contained within your world, everything in a paranormal must be created by you, the writer. And once you create your world, you and your characters must abide by those rules. We’ll show you where to start, the step by step process for creating your world, and how you and your characters can easily learn to live within the boundaries you’ve set.

Jaci Burton is a National Bestselling author of contemporary erotic romance and paranormal romance. She writes for four publishers, so her life is spent juggling deadlines and trying to keep the characters straight in all her books. Jaci is an award winning author, and has won the Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine’s Reviewer’s Choice Award. Jaci makes her home in northeast Oklahoma with her husband and more dogs than she can wrangle. To date she has published over thirty-five books.

Mandy M. Roth grew up fascinated by creatures that go bump in the night. From the very beginning, she showed signs of creativity. At age five, she had her first piece of artwork published. Writing came into play early in her life as well. Over the years, the two mediums
merged and led her to work in marketing. Combining her creativity with her passion for horror has left her banging on the keyboard into the wee hours of the night. Mandy lives with her husband and three children on the shores of Lake Erie, where she is currently starting
work on her Master’s Degree. She was nominated for Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine’s Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Paranormal Erotic.
