So, the 4th question is “What made you choose chicklit genre?”
1) Author #1 : Tetasheri Whitney
The character in my book is a Queen though she is unaware of it.
2) Author #2: Beth Merlin
I didn’t set out to write chick lit, but the setting of One S’more Summer, a sleep away camp seemed to lend itself to the genre.
3) Author #3: Tracy Orchard
I didn’t start out to write a chick lit book, in fact my characters are aged 30 and 40 and I assumed it was women’s lit that I was writing. It was only after people read it and started telling me how much they laughed and cried and loved the characters that I realized they were right in telling me I had actually written a chick lit book!
4) Author #4: Jae El Foster
I don’t choose the genres; the genres choose me. (lol) I write whatever story comes to me. Sometimes it’s Chick Lit; sometimes it’s Sci Fi. Sometimes it’s horror or contemporary. As long as the story is there, I don’t shy away from a genre.
5) Author #5: Adesanya
I’ve never chosen a genre in my life. So, I didn’t choose it .. that’s just how it turned out.
6) Author #6: Amy Spitzfaden
It’s what I love to read the most! I love the real stories told in such a funny, lively, bright way.
7) Author #7: Summer Dowell
I love a good romance story, but I also love making people laugh. The quick and easy banter in most of my stories is my favorite part of writing so the choice was pretty natural
8) Author #8: Jennifer Patricia O’Keeffe
I write what makes me happy. I write genuinely happy, humorous, and entertaining stories that show splices of life and moments in time.
9) Author #9: Sasha Lane
My writing style is light-hearted so it suits chick lit perfectly. I also love to write in first person so this works well too. I also wanted to write books that people could laugh along with and enjoy, as a bit of escapism from real life.
10) Author #10: Kristin Billerbeck
It’s just my natural voice. I wrote third-person romance for years until I switched to first-person and found the real Kristin.
11) Author #11: Phaedra Patrick
I enjoy writing stories with warm characters who go on journeys of discovery. I’m not sure it was a definite choice, it’s just how my writing comes out. I always say there are enough stories about killers in the world, without me contributing to the genre.
12) Author #12: Katie Joyce Cross
It chose me 🙂
