In my experience so far in the First Chapters Romance contest, I have received a lot of favorable comments about the setting of my first chapter, which is in Paris.Â Â Â Indeed, if you cannot cultivate a sense of in Paris, it may be really hard to find elsewhere.Â Â Â You can read my chapter set in Paris and New York atÂ SUMMER DAYS OF DESIRE. Â
In a similar vein, one of the other contestants I know well has set her chapter in the Caribbean, where again it is easy to relax and step outside the normal bounds of your day to day life.Â Â Â For a romantic adventure in those far flung islands, see RUNAWAY by Vivian A.
My next questionsÂ are directed to the readers of romance and potentially other novels.Â Â Â
What setting would you like to see in a romance novel?Â Â
Does the setting have a big impact on how you feel about the story?Â
Are there other First Chapter Romance entries that have unique settings that readers who like the combination of romance and travel should check out?
Here's to your next adventure in a faraway place!
