Facts in Fiction: Drawing Readers Into Your Fantasy World By Telling Them the Truth

When the world and the characters in your fiction are so believable that they seem real, your reader is primed to accept every fantastical, spooky, or otherworldly event and creature you weave into your story. But how to get the facts we need to enhance our writing without spending months on research? The answer is to go directly to the source.   For her magical realism trilogy, The Secret Spice Cafe, author Patricia V. Davis was able to procure an interview (and a book blurb) from the greatest living magician in the world, David Copperfield, a private hour with a genuine, reclusive voodoo priestess who revealed secret rituals, a podcast interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Emmy Award-winning screenwriter Mark B. Perry (Ghost Whisperer) and several other busy and guarded professionals who are hard to reach. How does a midlist author make these valuable connections without spending thousands of dollars for publicists who have those contacts? In this workshop, she'll tell you just what she does---the right and wrong ways to approach people, and how you can do it too.
