In honor of #ChickLitMay and International Chick Lit Month, I'm joining a number of great authors to tease what's on page 45 of our novels.
"I peeked in my CVS bag with a tempered sense of pride. How could one little thing impart such a feeling of victory? This was going to be harder than anything I’d ever done, that I knew, but I did one thing today. What the hell am I gonna do with another curling iron? I did one thing today, and it was enough. Tomorrow I could...do something else, and hopefully it wouldn’t involve more hair products, but it would be something."
In my novel, New York Dolls, Denton Hodges moves to New York City and lands her dream job at the hottest celeb magazine around, Glitter. Coming from the South, Denton feels like a fish out of water in the Big Apple. She makes it through her first day with a little help from some retail therapy and her new roommate. But will it be enough to help her navigate the big city and her first major reporting assignment for Glitter?
Find out what happens when Denton takes on the biggest story of her life in New York Dolls.
(Also available as an e-book through iTunes and Kobo.)
