12 Days of Chica Lit

When I’m not crafting, I’m writing novels!

Well, I wrote one anyway. And it is going to be published in the summer of 2009 by Grand Central Publishing. The same publisher for authors such as Steven Colbert, Amy Sedaris, Nicolas Sparks! It feels so good to type that!

A HUGE inspiration for my fiction writing comes from a some talented Latina authors I met over the past couple of years, thanks to my friend Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, the “Godmother of Chica Lit” according to Time Magazine!

Alisa held a Chica Lit writer’s conference in Miami in 2006, and people came from all over the country to meet up and share their book writing adventures. We’ve all kept in touch, and last October a few of us rolled out The Chica Lit Ghost Story Blog Tour – and it was a huge success.

Well, now 12 of us are doing it again – holiday style!

Here is the line up. I’m talking 12 days of mini-stories that celebrate December cheer. The blog tour began today with Mary Castillo! There are prizes too! My turn is Tuesday, the 18th and I’m already biting my glitter-encrusted nails!

Ok, go click, read and enjoy!

  1. It’s wonderful you’re getting published! I love your crafts and your blog. It’s interesting; I think The Dirty Girls Social Club was the first chick lit I ever read, because I covered a talk she gave for my college newspaper. Unfortunately, there was a mix-up, and someone else was covering the event the same night and had his story published instead of mine. Those were the good old days.
