authors on getting published

Caroline Madden journalist writer booksI live in the seaside village of Malahide in Dublin, Ireland with my two children and a very small white dog who likes to eat socks. I’ve been writing for The Irish Times since 2005.

I hope this blog helps aspiring authors to cope with the rejection that’s so often part of getting published, and encourages them to persist with their writing until they get their first book deal. After all, as one of our featured authors Ian Flitcroft said, “Bloody-minded persistence is an absolute requirement, beyond anything else.”
