Just so you know, the full title of romance author Cathy Yardley’s how-to book is Will Write for Shoes: How to Write A Chick Lit Novel. Does it strike you as odd that I would read such a book? It shouldn’t – especially if you’ve already read my novel GUESTLIST.
In the weeks leading up to GUESTLIST’s release, whenever most people asked what genre it would fall into, I would say, without hesitation, “chick lit.” That response was usually followed by a look of utter perplexity.
But think about it. GUESTLIST is the story of a young woman who moves to New York City and attempts to adjust to life in her new surroundings. She begins looking for love (or, at least, companionship) and struggles to find a foothold in her career. Isn’t that basically what most chick lit books are about?

The truth is, you people are much better at doing the Instagram Photo Challenges than I am. Twice I’ve vowed to participate; twice I’ve failed. Woe is most assuredly me.
But since I know y’all are gearing up for May, I wanted to share the list of challenges with you. Shout out to FatMumSlim, whomever she is, for coming up with these truly creative challenges.
