CRAFT: Why Bad Can be So Good: How to write deliciously evil villainsFriday April 30 10-11 AM
The hero may always win but the villain has more fun. Villains get to
break the rules. They don't have to play nice. Lying, blackmail,
kidnapping, torture, murder, illicit sex...a villain forces your hero
into the dark places we're supposed to shun, and your readers can't
wait to go along for the ride. We'll discuss our favorite bad guys
and girls and the motivations for their amoral behavior. Learn how to
give readers what they want, a wicked guilty pleasure.
Panelists: Mario Acevedo, Juliet Blackwell, Mark henry, Diana Rowland, Jeanne C. Stein
