This Week in Chick Lit

~ By Melina Kantor

Happy Friday, Chick Lit fans!

As always, we’re here to help you kick off the weekend with chick lit and romance related links and inspiration.

We’ve got some real treats for you this week.


According to a CNN report, Nollybooks, a new publishing house, has come out with a line of chick lit books targeted towards South African women.

As they explain on their site:

Nollybooks Bookazines ™ is a series of easy-to-read, chic-lit romance fiction titles with South African storylines and characters that reflect the lives and aspirations of the people who will read them.

To make the books more appealing to women who aren’t in the habit of reading novels, the “Bookazines” have word puzzles and quizzes embedded in the pages.

This week also brought the launch of Heroes and Heartbreakers, an online community that’ll be sure to delight chick lit and romance fans. They’re promising book reviews, original fiction, author interviews, and more.

So stay tuned!


The lucky winner of Sarah Pekkanen’s giveaway is Jeff Salter! Keep an eye out for an email from me. You’ll have your copy of Skipping A Beat before you know it.
