It’s a writing craft book. And a delicious one at that. What aspiring women’s fiction author could ask for a more delicious treat than a writing craft book which treats the art of creating chick lit books to baking cupcakes? It’s very inspiring and creative, crammed with useful tips for creating your magnum opus. I felt all inspired and now I feel like giving fellow Irish woman Marian Keyes a run for her money. Writing women’s fiction has never looked so appealing.

A perfect gift for yourself if you are an aspiring chick lit author. Or for a friend who is one.

So when I clear my pending projects, I’ll be writing my chick lit novel. And I shall dedicate it to Alicia de los Reyes. Thanks for this super book, Alicia. Would love to read more writing craft from you.

This book is so much fun to read. It is, also, a practical guide to writing a book. I particularly love the tables and graphic organizers, as well as the author's sharing of her own doubts and anxieties in starting such a project. It all works!
