Welcome Letter from the Author

Dear Reader,

Yes, the website vanished into the bytes and bots of cyberspace. Fortunately, thanks to, I have a newly designed site up and running. Yaaay!

There will be updates about contests, appearances, and new books. As soon as everything is set, my monthly Dear Reader Letter will let me be in touch with you about...stuff! Stuff like books I’m reading and loving, stuff that’s going on in my world, and anything else that pops up. As I said, stuff!

Please note, too, the sign up page for my newsletter. I hope that you will join in. I hope to have some special goodies and perks there for folks who sign up. Yeah, I know it’s a bribe, what can I say? Rewards are good, I say!

Anyway, I’m excited about having all this up and running, and, nothing like a fresh start to kick off spring, right?

I hope you’ll drop in from time to time and check out the new areas of the website and some of the material about writing, new and archived. All those years of teaching have given me some insight–and some thoughts that may help those of you interested in writing your stories. Some FAQs have been answered, but if you have questions and/or comments, please contact me a where I’ll happily answer them.

About Lindsay Longford


LINDSAY LONGFORD is the award-winning, best-selling author of 17 romance and romantic suspense novels for Silhouette books and a novella for Berkley/Putnam Penguin.

A former high school English teacher with an M.A. in English Lit, she began writing romance because she believed in the power of love to lift the human spirit and to make the world a better place. And because everyone can use a happy ending, even if it's only in fiction and temporary!
