UNFORTUNATELY, THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO THE AUTHORS’ INABILITY TO ATTEND. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING IT AVAILABLE NEXT YEAR.

BDSM for Supernatural Creatures (Dominant wolves and their submissive mates)

Writing paranormal can present its challenges, but writing credible BDSM within a supernatural world is much more difficult than it seems. In this workshop, we’ll discuss world building, characterization, and tips for developing believable BDSM scenes within the crafted paranormal community that often consists of wolves, vampires, lions, ghosts, dragons, and other interesting characters.

We’ll discuss creative pointers for story development that will not only save steps later, but will also help with marketing and advertising a mystical world with realistic BDSM scenes. Writers will discover why it’s so important for BDSM elements to be incorporated within the paranormal community based on the rules of the author’s imagined society and what readers would find believable within the scope of the story.

Pitfalls to avoid will also be discussed. Writers will leave the course with a good grasp of how to create loving and romantic relationships for their characters even when their superhuman identities would suggest a much darker, or even sinister, makeup. Tips for redeeming flawed characters will also be given so a natural progression can be shown throughout a paranormal manuscript, regardless of length.

The end result will lead authors to produce a more marketable story where the passion sizzles off the pages. A paranormal world designed for strong Doms and willing submissives will easily be achieved with many tips for success offered. This workshop has a heavy paranormal focus, but writers and readers of all genres are welcome.
