Loved this book! It only took me a few hours to read, on an overcast, rainy day, laying in bed, with just me and my Kindle Paper White.

I decided to pick this book up, when I came to the sudden realization that the book I'm writing meets the criteria for chick lit. Naturally, this led to me wanting to learn. I threw myself into it headfirst.

The book is written in a smart, approachable way by Alicia de los Reyes. She uses the baking of cupcakes, one of her secret lifelong dreams (to own a cupcake shop), as a metaphor for writing chick lit!

She breaks down and covers everything from fleshing out your character to the revision of your rough draft. She helps semi-confused readers to really clarify what makes chick lit exactly what it is.

DIY Chick Lit: A Writing Guide is filled with fun exercises and the secret ingredients to your success as a writer. If you're a chick lit writer, then bonus!

I am looking forward to more fun reads by this author, as she has a way of making learning about writing and authoring your own book, sparkly and fun!
