Hi, loyal Craftbook Fans!

I wanted to let you know that I launched another project–an ebook! The Chick Lit Cookbook: A Guide to Writing Your Novel in 30 Minutes a Day is officially on sale at Smashwords and Amazon. It’s only $4.99, and through midnight tonight you can get a copy for $2.99 at Amazon. You can also get it for $.99 on Smashwords using the coupon code ER26U. After that, it’s still only $4.99!

I love reading chick lit, and I confessed my love for it over on my author page. I talk a lot about chick lit and feminism, literature, and storylines over at chicklitcookbook.tumblr.com. And WHEW, I think that’s enough webpages for one gal.

Anyway, would love to hear what you think. Do you read chick lit? Do you write? Drop by and leave me a comment!

This past weekend, I took advantage of an empty apartment to craft like crazy. Unfortunately, all these crafts are (drumroll…) WEDDING-related, so I can’t share them with you on the off-chance a bridesmaid stumbles by here. Here are some wedding-related
