Caroline Linden The first thing to do is to stop looking at the industry and letting it get you down!

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)

At the Christmas Wedding by Caroline LindenFour years ago some friends and I got together to write a book. It was so much fun, and received such lovely feedback from readers, we've gone back to Kingston Castle and written a sequel to At the Duke's Wedding. Today you can get At the Christmas Wedding, in which it snows (heavily), the castle is full of guests again (some unexpected), and Bridget has persuaded everyone to play a part in th...

“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

“What the devil was this story? Douglas pushed open the door to his sitting room, propped one shoulder against the window frame as he opened the plain, prudish cover, and began to read.

By the end of the first page his eyebrows started to rise. By the end of the second, his mouth was hanging open. And when he reached the last page, he no longer cared about Spence's wager or the bounty on Lady Constance's head or what Burke was thinking to let Joan read this.

If Madeline Wilde had written this--even if every word sprang solely out of her imagination and not from her experience--he wanted to get to know her much, much better.”
Caroline Linden, All's Fair In Love and Scandal
