DIY Chick Lit: A writing guide


Psst…want to try your hand at writing one of those brightly-colored paperbacks?


Psst…do you love to read those pretty pink books?

Chick lit might be a dirty word in your circle, but it’s not in mine. I love chick lit, and I have since the very first time I met Bridget Jones.These books are super fun to read, and with DIY Chick Lit: A writing guide, you’ll find they are fun to write, too. I used my obsessive reader superpowers to dissect the genre for you so that you can spend your time doing what you want to do: write.

What’s more, chick lit is immensely popular in the world of ebooks. Looking to try your hand at something that folks want to read? Try writing chick lit.

DIY Chick Lit is chock full of concrete writing exercises–just 30 minutes each!–telling you what to work on each day, along with a healthy dose of inspiration, and the occasional kick-in-the-pants you need to get a draft done.

And other writers love it–here’s what they have to say:

The beauty of this book is its super-tight focus: How to write chick lit in 30 minutes a day. Not: how to write a thriller or mystery or YA (though this is so well done that aspiring novelists of almost any genre would find much to learn). Not: how to publish your chick lit novel (though if you follow de los Reyes advice, publication would stand a much better chance).

It’s a writing craft book. And a delicious one at that. What aspiring women’s fiction author could ask for a more delicious treat than a writing craft book which treats the art of creating chick lit books to baking cupcakes? It’s very inspiring and creative, crammed with useful tips for creating your magnum opus…Writing women’s fiction has never looked so appealing.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to write chick lit. It gives you the tools you need to write your book.
