Okay, I’m late to the party. I am FAR from the first to be revealing this fun and fab cover from my author bud, Meredith Schorr. But I may be the proudest… Okay, I guess that’s not fair. I’m sure Meri’s mom would take exception to that. But I am super proud all the same! I also read Blogger Girl–and had this to say:
“Meredith Schorr’s delightfully flawed heroines have never failed to charm me, and
Blogger Girl’s Kimberly Long joins Jane (A State of Jane) and Stephanie (Just Friends With Benefits)
in a special place in my heart. I really connected with her, especially, I hate to admit,
over the frustration of seeing her high school nemesis thrive while she floundered.
A great character. So very human and full of dimension. A satisfying and enjoyable read!”
Yeah, I dug it. So will you. So without further ado… How awesome is this??
So here’s what it’s about…
What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out.
A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim, with her blog, “Pastel is the New Black,” has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that “chick lit is dead” once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm.
While Kim’s day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that’s turning heads–and pages–across the land. It’s also popped into Kim’s inbox–for review. With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim’s coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life.
A born and bred New Yorker, Meredith Schorr discovered her passion for writing when she began to enjoy drafting work-related emails way more than she was probably supposed to, and was famous among her friends for writing witty birthday cards. After trying her hand writing children’s stories and blogging her personal experiences, Meredith found her calling writing “real” chick lit for real women. When Meredith is not hard at work on her current work in progress, she spends her days as a trademark paralegal. Meredith is a loyal New York Yankees fan and an avid runner. Blogger Girl is her third novel.
