Tomorrow They Will Kiss by Eduardo Santiago (Historical Fiction)    

Description: 

I see it all the time in my creative writing classes – nice people try to write books and their characters are all nice and conflict averse. These are dangerous times and most of us will go out of our way to avoid conflict that could flare into violence. But in writing, that’s what we want most! Without conflict there’s no story. In this essential tutorial you will learn a myriad of ways to enrich your story with internal and external conflict, how to design the most delicious antagonists, and create formidable obstacles for your protagonist.
