She lives in New England.

I would be delighted to send a list of recommendations, although there are plenty of places you can find lists. Romance readers love to share their favorites.

Give yourself permission to not write, not think about writing, just let your mind explore different ideas and possibilities. Read books, magazines, watch movies, give your imagination time and space to grow and expand. Once you have an idea, an idea you really love, start writing. It may be hard, it may be easy, but keep at it.

Only when you have an idea that you love, and you're written the story exactly the way you want it to be written, only then start to look at the industry. When you have a story you love, you'll have something to fight for, which will carry you through the discouraging parts of publishing.

Good luck!(less)

Get A Study in Scandal FREE!

From all retailers, download A Study in Scandal (part of my Scandalous series) absolutely free! It's got a brand new epilogue, and an extended preview of my next book When the Marquess Was Mine because the heroes of these two books are brothers.

Don't wait too long, though--this will only be free for a limited time.

Happy reading!

Caroline Linden answered a question about About a Rogue:
About a Rogue by Caroline Linden
The next duke will be known by the end of the series--I can't say more than that! (But Max and Bianca will live happily ever after, no matter what)
More of Caroline's books…
“Would you like me to court you?” the earl finally asked.
YES. She smoothed her hands over her skirts to keep from confessing it aloud. “I would like to know if you are,” she replied. “Or what your intentions are, if you aren’t.”
“My intentions . . .” His slow smile acted like a torch held to her skin. She felt prickly with heat and yet transfixed by the glowing allure of it. “I intend to have you, Maggie, in every way a man can have a woman. I want your hand in mine while we dance. I want you laughing beside me in the theater. I want you lying naked in my arms at night. And I want you standing beside me in church, saying ‘I will.’ ”
Caroline Linden

“Men can bed any woman,” she said stiffly. “It means nothing.”
He paused. “Nothing,” he repeated thoughtfully. “It rarely means nothing. And sometimes, in very particular circumstances, it means a great deal.”
Caroline Linden, Blame It on Bath

“To the ends of the earth, madam, to say nothing of back and forth in this garden.”
Caroline Linden, I Love the Earl
