Site of Interest: Chick Lit is not Dead

http://chicklitisnotdead.com/ is a site by two girls who believe that books with high fashion and happy ending will never go out of style. If you agree, this is a site worth checking out.

They do great author features chick lit writers and often have give aways organised. The site is simple and easy to navigate. It has a real girly feel to it and the photo's on site are very 'Sex in the City' style. Perfect for the site.

About Liz and Lisa



Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke have been friends for over twenty years since the day Lisa walked into Freshman English class wearing red eyeglasses that made her look like  Sally Jesse Raphael’s younger, but much more stylish sister. They both attended Cal Poly Pomona University and each graduated with a degree in Communication.
It was in college that they first discussed writing a book together. But when an attempt at collaborating on a one act play for their theater class went awry, (Let’s just say word processor +confined dorm room space+two Type A personalities= major drama!)  their plan to write that book was shelved until they, er, grew up!
Cut to, um, more than a decade later. After one marriage and two babies (Liz) zero marriages and more than two break ups (Lisa), they began their novel. And, although they were slightly more mature, had upgraded from word processors to MacBooks and lived in homes larger than shoeboxes, they still had those Type A personalities!
So, to do their best to avoid any major writing drama as they collaborated, they decided to write a dual narrative novel. This way, they’d still be writing together, but would each get to be in charge of one main character. (Until the editing process.  Then everything was fair game!)
And it worked out. Well, if you don’t count that one episode where Liz was postpartum, Lisa was post-breakup and someone might have stormed out of someone else’s house!
They published their first novel, I’ll Have Who She’s Having with an independent publisher and are now focused on finding a home for their second manuscript.
Liz is married with two children and Lisa is a glowing newlywed. Until eight months ago, they both resided in Long Beach, California. But Lisa, a former television producer, has since moved to Chicago.
