Hello again!

Hi friends and fans!

As you may have noticed, I have a new, slightly spiffier website. Never fear! The Chick Lit Cookbook tumblr is still up, and will remain up until the end of the internet.

But *this* new website is exciting to me for several reasons:

1. I am now a dot com. Actually, I feel very silly and not a little self-conscious about being my-name-dot-com, but every other name seemed…sillier. And at least this way, publishers can see my “platform.” Or something.
2. You can now buy The Chick Lit Cookbook directly from me. You check out using PayPal, and it’s still $4.99. But when you buy my book here, 100% of the list price goes to me and my editor. That is awesome! (You can also still buy from Amazon and Smashwords, or any other ereader platform.)
3. It has those cool little links at the top, which right now are mostly random photos but will soon be unified, cohesive artwork!

Setting up my own shop was honest to goodness one of the most satisfying experiences of my life. I made my sister Monica buy a book, and when I finally figured out how to deliver it to her, I was so damn proud.

Anyway! To celebrate this spiffy new website, here’s a coupon for 50% off the list price of the CLC (making it only $2.49!). Just pop on over to the shop and use the code CINCO to get 50% off The Chick Lit Cookbook. Now through June 15!

Watch me write a novel

Over on The Chick Lit Cookbook tumblr, I’ve been using The Chick Lit Cookbook to write my own chick lit. My novel is about an archaeology student named Malena who solves an archaeological mystery about cave art and falls in love. Right now, this insane project is called CAVE ART, but Godwilling I will come up with a more suitable title by the time I am done.

So far, this project has kept me accountable–I’m up to Chapter 9 in the cookbook, I’ve written 1.5 chapters, and outlined the entire thing. I’m posting the chapters as I write them here, and you can follow along my progress on if you’re interested.

Wish me luck!!

My own DIY…

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 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!
