This Week in Chick Lit

~ By Melina Kantor 

Happy Friday, chick lit fans.

Hope it’s been a good week!

Here are a few chick lit / book related stories I came across this week:

First, there was this interview with Jennifer Weiner in the New York Times about book reviewers ignoring female authors.

Then, there was this episode of the StoryWonk Daily podcast about self publishing through the Apple’s iBookstore. I’ve always been, and will most likely always been a huge fan of Apple, but I found this recent news disturbing.

And just for fun, here’s an article from USA Today in which romance authors share their thoughts on the popularity of vampires.

Lastly, for those of you needing a bit of writing inspiration for the weekend, here’s a video from Lady Jane’s Salon about “What Makes a Hero.”


Have a great weekend. 🙂
