Valerie and her co-contributors, Jennie Adams, Helen Bianchin, Daphne Clair, Lilian Darcy, Robyn Donald, Kelly Ethan, Alexis Fleming, Elizabeth Rolls and Meredith Webber - all successful romance writers whose books have appeared on international bestseller lists - answer the questions most often asked of published authors: how do I make my characters live; my dialogue feels flat - how can I fix it; how did you begin writing romance novels; how do I make sure my book hits the right emotional heights; I don't have to edit my own work, do I; can I do anything to market my manuscript, and many more.
