August 17th Program
Laws of Attraction: Writing Sexual Tension
USA Today Bestselling author Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey, Sandra Brown and Linda Howard many years ago. Well not that many. She is only eighteen…ish. Though her first attempt at a romance novel starring Ralph Tresvant from New Edition never saw the light of day, her love of romance, reading and writing has endured. Published since 2009, she spends her days—and nights— writing sizzling romances with a touch of humor and snark.
She is wife to Superman, or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent, and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, sometimes domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.

Sexual tension is the sensual dance, the push and pull, the “will they, won’t they” that drives the romance between a book’s main characters. Whether the heat level is sweet or scorching hot, sexual tension isn’t only important to the romance, but it also causes readers to become invested in the characters and their relationship. From the first time the main characters meet, the tension between them builds and doesn’t end until the closing of the book. Through this workshop, we will learn the Laws of Attraction when it comes to sexual tension. We’ll explore how setting, characterization, secondary characters and conflict influence the push and pull between the main characters, as well as learn alternate tools for writing and increasing tension.
