Chatting With the Chicks of Chick Lit

Standard

May is International Chick Lit Month! The ladies of Chick Lit Chat are celebrating with a week of festivities (see my previous post to enter our contest to win a Kindle and Amazon gift card!) Today we’re chatting with some of my main characters!

Chuck: Ha ha ha ha welcome, welcome everyone to Chatting With the Chicks of Chick Lit. I’m your host, Chuck Lottateeth, and I am so thrilled to be able to introduce you to some of the most fascinating characters in literature today. I’m talking about the leading ladies of chick lit—those enchanting, romantic, darling, sexy, sweet, funny, headstrong—and, let’s face it, sometimes downright frustrating—modern women who headline this fabulously fun genre. I’m sure you’re going to love getting the skinny on these “novel” heroines, and who knows? You might just find your new BFF on the pages of one of these books!

Without further ado, please put your hands together and show some love for today’s guests, the heroines of Jayne Denker’s small-town series!

DoL coverWelcome the main character of the first Marsden novel, Down on Love: Georgiana (“George”) Down! Georgiana’s a blogger whose advice column/anti-relationship site, Down on Love, is really taking off, but she gets in over her head when she moves back to Marsden after being away most of her adult life.

Picture This (eBook)Our second guest, from the second Marsden novel, Picture This: Celia Marshall! We first met Celia in Down on Love, as the former girlfriend of George’s crush from high school, Casey Bowen. In Picture This, she’s moved to New York City to be a photographer’s assistant, and she’s caught the eye of a bona fide movie star.

Our third guest, from the third Marsden novel, Lucky for You: Jordan Leigh! Celia’s younger—and much more troublesome—cousin, Jordan settles in Marsden for the first time since her family moved away when she was a child, and she’s got some baggage. Namely, an ankle monitor. She’s under house arrest, and is being babysat by straitlaced but sexy police officer Will Nash.

What a threesome we’ve got here! Let’s get started, shall we? Read the rest of this entry

Oh, It’s On!

Standard

Happy March! I won’t say “happy spring” because I’m up to my eyeballs in snow and single-digit temperatures. I hope it’s different where you are, but for me…firmly convinced spring will never come. I’ve accepted it: The U.S. Northeast has got itself a permanent winter.

However, something is thawing my frozen heart (if not my frozen nose)… Read the rest of this entry

Standard

Hey, sorry about that little glitch yesterday. If you were looking for the blog tour, we were on the side of the road with a flat tire. But we’re all good now! Let’s roll on through the home stretch of our (Blog) Tour of Marsden, NY, this time with a stop at my agency sister CJ Burright’s blog, for a little inside information: where, exactly, the town of Marsden came from. It may be fictional, but it has its roots in a lot of really great—and real—New York towns.

If you want to find out more about the mashup I created (so much better than a Frankenstein monster, I promise!), check out Down on Love for only 99 cents, all e-formats, all month long!
