Our guest: L. Alison Heller
Why she rocks: Her debut novel is FANTASTIC. And she is CUTE as hell. And FUNNY too! (Yes, we’re girl crushin’!)
Her debut: The Love Wars
Our thoughts: Very Devil Wears Prada-esque! We LOVED it–fast paced and fun, you won’t be able to resist The Love Wars. One of our faves so far in 2013.
Giveaway: ONE copy. Just leave a comment to be entered to win. We’ll randomly select the winners after 12pm PST on May 26th.
CHICK LIT IS NOT DEAD PRESENTS…L. ALISON HELLER’S 5 SUMMER LOVES
Two of my favorite authors wrote blurbs for THE LOVE WARS and I can’t wait to get my hands on their summer offerings: Meg Donohue’s ALL THE SUMMER GIRLS and Liane Moriarity’s THE HUSBAND’S SECRET.
2. Vacay or Staycay I plan to take
I’m lucky with this one! My sister and her family moved to London, so this summer we’re going to all meet up in France.
3. Cocktail or Mocktail
I’ve just did a recipe for book clubs describing my very sloppy way of making Pimm’s Cup, and now I have it on the brain. Also, last year while visiting my sister in London, I had my first taste of elderflower syrup. We would pour some in seltzer with a sprig of mint and it was delicious. I haven’t been able to find it here in New York, so I’m looking forward to having some on our vacation.
4. Music you plan to listen to
Vampire Weekend’s latest album comes out on May 7 (incidentally, the same day as THE LOVE WARS’ debut) and I can’t wait to listen to it.
5. Place you plan to write
I love to sit up on the roof of my building and write. It’s a very quiet spot with shade and a breeze. I’ve been known to stretch use of it until November, but really, it works best in the summer.
