Does anyone know what a tag line is? If you do, let's see yours.

Mine is “Real Women. Real Life.”

For those who don't have tag lines, lets see if we can put one together.

What genre do you write in? Is it edge, sexy, sassy, daring, spiritual, etc?

Fill in the blanks. Let's see how many kinds of tag lines we can come up with.

Put your thinking caps on and go.

I'm not afraid to go first and sound stupid. I'm using "Romance with a Twist." It ties in the name of my first book and hints that I'm not writing your mother's romance novels. OK, everybody tell me how stupid that is :(

Hi Vicki!

First let me say, I'm really excited about this workshop you're doing, with my first book hitting the e-shelves yesterday, I need all the help I can get!

As I write in a few different genres from paranormal to erotic I wanted something that I felt encompassed the feeling of my characters and my stories no matter what time/place or passion level.

So, my tag line is

Debora Dennis
Saucy Women, Sexy Men, Sultry Romance

I do have a tag line, but I likely don't use it as I should. It does appear on my bookmarks. So I'll use it here in my signature:

Hi Everyone. You all have some good tag lines. Let's help Hollie find a tag line.

And let's hear from the others too.. What's your tag line? And, if you don't have one, let's help you find one, ok?

Hollie... let's start with genre, is it romance? What kind of romance?

Don't be afraid, people, jump in with questions. The more we dig, the better tag line we can create.

I went through your website and found some reviews. I came up with some other words to describe your work from those reviews

sexy
pulse pounding
explosive
stir your heart

along with passionate

See if you can mix all these words up yours and mine, and come up with a short sentence that will rock your readers.

I must admit that Iíve struggled to come up with a tag line for a while now, but Iím not actually that good at ďcatchyĒ phrases. Iím an erotic romance author. Strong willed characters and lots of dialog are my stock and trade. When describing my style of writing, I normally tell people itís fast, fun and frivolous. I donít know if that sounds good, but Iím definitely not a dramatic writer and donít take my stories very seriously.

Goodness, I don't know how to come up with a one liner that encompasses what I write.

I write mainstream to erotica; steamy to scorching. Contemporary and Paranormal for now.

Eclectic Romance Writer is how I've always referred to myself, but nowadays, everyone is throwing 'eclectic' around. I like to be unique.

Any suggestions?

1.) Erotic
2.) Engaging
3.) Addictive
4.) Romantic
5.) Unputdownable :scardey:

LeilaBrown

:-) Hi Leila, okay. We know you're the author, so we can cut that ...and "of" is a preposition, don't need that... so out start is "mouth-watering romance" .... hmmm.

Let's take a look at your words.

Maybe "Mouth-watering erotic romance you can't resist"

Just off the top of my head looking at the words you listed.
Okay, think about it though.... what does "mouth watering" mean when you really envision it... "drooling"? What does someone usually drool over? Food.

Let's try again. Can you come up with a better descriptor than "mouth-watering"?

Vicki M. Taylor
June 3rd, 2008, 03:06 PM
Engaging erotic romance that leaves you addicted.

:right: :tear: Talk2Hand Smilie :err: yep that's about how I feel when trying to come up with this stuff!

Well, we're getting closer.. gotta leave out the "that leaves you"...

Addictive erotic romance you can't resist

see how "addictive" and "resist" are used at the beginning and end of the sentence it balances the sentence and keeps them drawn in so they must surrender to you? :-)

Enticing, exquisite, delectable, Tempting, enchanting or luscious.

Works for me!

Hi I'm new CTR (thanks Vicki for telling TARA about your workshop!), so I hope I'm joining this thread in the right place.

Let's see if we can start making it clearer.

a tag line, like a graphic identity, is a "quick snapshot" of what you are about...or why you are special (think the swoosh of Nike and the "just do it", or the Monsters Inc. movie "You won't believe your eye" --- or the classic "You're In Good Hands with ... Allstate"). Here are some good guidelines for tag lines.


tag lines are catchy;
tag lines are only a few words long;
tag lines are creative and have more than one meaning;
When thinking about your tag line,
Decide what you want to communicate with your tag line
How do you want to represent yourself
How do you want to represent your writing
What do you want your readers to feel

Hi Carla, welcome. Glad to see you here. Your tag line is short, to the point and works on several levels. Your readers will be inspired by reading your work, and you write inspirationals.. and they'll get that from your tag. :-)

Hey Vicky,

Yes, actually I meant frivolous, but in the best of possible ways. All my favorite authors are light and easy, Johanna Lindsay, Amanda Quick, books that somewhat silly, love stories that donít force the reader into deep emotional responses.
<o:p></o:p>
So letís see five adjectives and five adverbs (this is like a test Ė lol). Okay, Iím staring at my page and this is a lot harder than it should be. :dizzy:

Adjectives: romantic (duh, huh?), funny, adventurous, light, strong-willed women and alpha males
Adverbs: fast readÖ(having a lot more difficulty here, can we go back to the adjectives?) http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/images/icons/xthud.gif
<o:p></o:p>
Beyond this, I must admit that most of my books are mťnage a trios and star dominating men (and strong women).

Iím going to need more time for those adverbs.

Glad to see a friendly face around here. http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/images/icons/icon10.gif Iím like you. My writing spans so many themes and styles that I have this fear of creating a mold for myself. Right now, I have a paranormal/suspense, a contemporary, and a cowboy book coming out. At the moment, Iím righting my ďhappy storiesĒ Ė no drama allowed, but I do have outlines for books that are more intense.

Iíve tried to think of lines along the vein of ďimagination run wildĒ, but they sound so trite and over used.
<o:p></o:p>
I canít figure out why I can write a 80,000 word book with ease and have such difficulty with a title or a blurb or even a tag line. :wacko:

Hi Ian,

We like our tag lines to encompass all of our writing and who we are as an author. We want it to become a permanent identifier of who we are and not have to change it with each book.

While your tag is catchy, it doesn't really say anything what you write. We want to include somehow the feel and emotions of what you write, getting across the genre/subgenre to the reader.

If you've been reading along, :-) you know what I'm going to say next, :-) give me 5 adjectives to describe your writing.

Hey Vicky,

No official reviews. I got these comments from my editor:

The characters were fun, the situation and dialogue a hoot and the plot flowed smoothly, or mostly smoothly, from start to finish. It left the reader really pulling for the relationship between Tessa and her men to work out, which it did.

I was mulling things over on my way to work and trying to encompass all I write into it. I don't know if i'll be able to. But, what they all have in common is heart.

What I keep coming back to is: Sauce with heart

I feel like there should be more, but the words aren't coming.

Thanks Vicki.

I was mulling things over on my way to work and trying to encompass all I write into it. I don't know if i'll be able to. But, what they all have in common is heart.

What I keep coming back to is: Sauce with heart

I feel like there should be more, but the words aren't coming.

I don't mean to be funny, Bekki, but "Sauce with Heart" sounds like you're a cook book writer..

I went through your website and found some reviews. I came up with some other words to describe your work from those reviews

sexy
pulse pounding
explosive
stir your heart

along with passionate

See if you can mix all these words up yours and mine, and come up with a short sentence that will rock your readers.
Thought about this. How does this sound?

Passionate, pulse pounding stories that will stir your heart.

Well, I've been in food service for 30 + years and my current series is a restaurant theme, so my mindset tends to lean that way.

I like it, but it needs more before it'll work.


What I have on my website is a two-liner.

Hidden secret passions...YOURS.
Do you DARE discover them?

So, I've been trying to play off that as well. Maybe just go with the first line.

Hi Everyone. You all have some good tag lines. Let's help Hollie find a tag line.

And let's hear from the others too.. What's your tag line? And, if you don't have one, let's help you find one, ok?

Hollie... let's start with genre, is it romance? What kind of romance?

Don't be afraid, people, jump in with questions. The more we dig, the better tag line we can create.

Mine is Romance with a Hint of Humor and a Lot of Heat. Probably too long, but it seems to work.

Vicki -Just found out about this, so I'm a little late joining...I have a unique problem with tag lines; I write personal humorous essays, historical romance, erotic romance, epic fantasy, erotic paranormal, thrillers, and now have a children's book coming out next year. The multiple personalities possessing my higher sensibilities fight all the time about tag lines. I came up with "Minnette's Worlds...Real or Imagined" but I think that is undoubtedly on the lame side of the scale, but I had to be somewhat generic. When I get as big as Nora, I'll set up websites for each genre, but for now, I only have the one. Help! Minnette :)

I agree, to an extent. I wanted it to be short so it wouldn't take up two lines on a business card. But, you are probably right. I'll think about changing it - after I use up the cards I already have.

I'm sooo late to this course and I apologize for jumping in with no introduction. I saw this thread though and wanted to dive in. It took me forever to decide on my tag line and even now I'm not sure about it. See, I write in a variety of genre, everything from sci-fi to changelings to D/s and GLT, so finding one tag to fit was daunting. Anyhoo, I'd love your opinion on mine. Oh, and I use it on almost everything. Check at the bottom of this message.

adjectives: queer, alternative, luxurious, sexy, loving, not-straight-in-any-sense (corset kink and making out in graveyards is hot to me, but I realise this is a minority taste, so even my het's not really *straight*)

I write contemporaries that range from mid erotic scenes to pure erotica. So far most of my novels are set in nature somehow being that I am a nature enthusiast. Only two so far aren't. I have tried my hand at a paranormal or two as well as a menage plot that is set in the city at a grocery store. In the future I hope to finish three regency plots, a sci fi and of course start to work again on the YA titles I originally started out with. I suppose at that point I will need to change my tag line!
My published stories are Oasis Of My Heart and Secrets of Summer. I am writing a sequel to Secrets of Summer right now and I also have a third novella contract signed with Forbidden Publications, an erotic piece.
My goals are listed on my blogspot at www.tarasnichols.blogspot.com and I will hopefully soon have my webpage up and running.

Yes, blinders like on horses. As in what one does not accept as real, they refuse to see.


I thought that was what you ment but not everything is the same this side of the pond

I don't have a tag line. I guess I should.

I'm gonna have to think about it. Short and to the point right?

Melanie, think about what you write.. grab 5 or 10 adjectives about your writing style and words from your reviews. Then put them together and see what you get. We can work on them here if you'd like.

I'm still waiting on reviews. I haven't gotten any yet and to be honest, I think that scares me more than anything.:needhug:

How about: Discover your passion in Ireland.

refresh my memory, do all your books take place in Ireland? It sounds good. If you start writing something else, obviously you'll have to change your tag line, but it looks good now.

Just this one takes place in Ireland, the next is Scotland and the next the US.

I guess my five adjectives would be...love, passion, sexy, exciting, fun.

Hi everyone

I hope it's all right to jump in at this very late stage (I've been up to my neck in edits and between those and everything else, this course slipped my mind which is a great shame as I really need it.:wacko: Please tell me if I've 'missed the boat' and I'll just read through and retire gracefully.

I've been fascinated by all the great tag lines people have come up with. I write romantic science fantasy (futuristic) and my tag line is'Romance That's "Out Of This World"

I don't see anything wrong with "discover your passion"

Welcome, Lyn. Glad to have you here, no matter what stage of the workshop you jump in at.

I like your tag line, it defines your subject and lets your readers know you write sci fi
