Bump in the Night: Writing the Paranormal Thriller
Bump in the Night: Writing the Paranormal Thriller – Presenter: Jacqui Jacoby
They come in the night, the secrets and the sounds…they are the thing that goes Bump in the Night. Paranormal & Thriller author, Jacqui Jacoby offers insight on how not only to write for the genres, but how to do it different. She’s worked with vampires, worked with witches, she has even worked with an adolescent kidnapped ghost. Ms. Jacoby’s taken the modern image of these beings and modernized them. This class will cover the basics of getting started on a book (research, plot, characters) as well as taking a look into making your paranormal idea real so it becomes a story. Subjects will include how to take the myth that exists and make it yours; how to find the creature of your dreams and, if needed, how to escalate the tension of the thriller.
