#ChickLitLove, Day 4: It’s All About the Besties

Standard

CLLIt’s a week of #ChickLitLove for the ChickLitChat authors!

Today is Galentine’s Day (thanks, Parks and Recreation!)—a day to recognize female friends. But I kind of want to call it Palentine’s Day, because sometimes a girl’s bestie is a guy. (And sometimes the guy doesn’t even want to sleep with her, nor she him.) So here’s to pals!

And be sure to follow the hashtag #ChickLitLove on Twitter for other great posts today! Tomorrow: Attack of the Graphics on Twitter! Stay tuned!

And if you haven’t heard, Down on Love is on sale (!) right now (!) for only $1.99 at B&N, Kobo, and iTunes!
