Did you ever meet someone on the internet and you think, hey… I could see myself really being friends with them? Did you ever meet them in “real life” and realize you were right? Well I have, multiple times.
I first met Meredith Schorr in a Facebook Group for Chick Lit authors and readers. We only had brief interactions, but I immediately liked her. Then when I was pondering republishing Dangled Carat with Booktrope I reached out to her since they published all of her books…
At first our relationship was mostly based on books. But over time, multiple real life get togethers, and endless conversations we now talk about everything and anything many times per day. I consider her one of my dearest friends, and I love her to pieces! It also doesn’t hurt that she is one of my favorite authors!
And today she is revealing the cover to her latest book – Novelista Girl – which is the standalone sequel to her popular book, Blogger Girl.
Isn’t she pretty?
Here is a little about the book….
Readers first met sassy Kimberly Long in Blogger Girl, and now the feisty New Yorker is back in a sequel packed with quick wit, friendship, heartache, and, of course, romance.
Kim runs the most popular chick lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her lifelong dream to become a published author. At first glance, her life is five-pink-champagne-flutes worthy.
But is there more to the story than meets the eye?
After hearing the phrase “chick lit is dead” more times than she’s read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim is driven to desperate measures, seeking advice from up-and-coming chick lit author, Hannah Marshak, her high school nemesis and resident “mean girl.” As if Kim doesn’t have enough on her plate balancing her secretarial duties with her blog Pastel Is the New Black, shrugging off the growing pile of agent rejections, and keeping her best friend from turning green over Kim’s budding friendship with Hannah, Nicholas is so blinded by his career ambitions, he doesn’t see that their home sweet home could use more than a dash of sugar.
This is the year when all of Kim’s dreams—professional and romantic—are supposed to come true, but will the story have a happily ever after, or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone?
This novel can be read as a sequel or as a standalone and is best accompanied by a cocktail, preferably a pink one.
I’m one of the lucky ones. I had a sneak peak of this great read and guess what? I loved it, just like I knew I would… You can check out my review on Goodreads here…
