Synopsis:

The villain is the hero of his own story - and is every bit as important as the heroic characters. This book contains the lectures and exercises from Tami Cowden's popular online class on villain archetypes. The workshop identifies and examines the motivations of the 16 literary villain archetypes, and shows what happens when heroes and heroines turn to the dark side. Here's what participants have said about the workshop: -I really enjoyed this class. Seeing these archetypes spelled out like this really gives perspective instinct does not. -Not only did this give me some really good tips on villain archetypes, but seeing the thought process behind creating a character for the archetypes helped me with your hero/heroine archetypes as well. -WONDERFUL class, again!!! It was quite a thrill figuring out which archetype matched up with the villianess of my WIP :) . I have your exclamation about motivation stuck to my wall, just as a reminder. --I did get a chance to apply this to my characters. I put a lot more thought into my characters' motivations and I think I will have a stronger book for it. The workshop really helped me make a more consistant characters and to work through how my characters act. -I'm having trouble getting a handle on my villain in my next book, and these archetypes are really helping me. -The exercises were enlightening as well as a fun way to get into the heads of these characters. - You have given me good ideas for use in my current WIP and I'm certain I'll be using some of the others archetypes in future works.

About the Author:

Tami Cowden wanted to be a writer since she was a teenager. After 20 some years of thinking how great life would be when she was a writer, it occurred to her that to reach that goal, she’d actually have to put words down on paper. So she starting writing, and received the Individual Achievement in Fiction Award from America Mensa, Ltd. for her first short story. Tami is also one of those obnoxious people who sold on her first try, earning $500 for a 1000 word story. But don’t hate her – the editor who bought her story quit shortly thereafter, and Tami has never sold to that magazine again. But she has sold more than 20 other short stories since, and her stories have appeared in three award nominated anthologies, Love Triumphs, Love Mystifies and Love Sizzles. Her first novel, Cruising for Love, winner of RWA’s Golden Heart, was released by Avalon Books. Tami is the coauthor of The Complete Writers Guide to Heroes and Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes, a guide to characterization for writers. Tami has presented writing programs on characterization, plotting and scene building at more than 100 writing conferences and retreats, as well as online. A lawyer by day, she is now working on a mystery series about a divorce lawyer who inherits a Las Vegas wedding chapel.
