Blending Genres: Time Travel and Chick Lit

I've got an interview with one of our Blogosphere gals, Marianne Mancusi, up at my blog now. She's the author of the first time travel chick lit novel, A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur's Court. When a fashion editor ticks off the wrong gypsy, she finds herself back in the days of Camelot, where there are no Starbucks to be found. On the other hand, there are some rather chivalrous knights in shining armor ...

You can read the interview here.

Wow, that sounds like it is going to be fun!!! I can't wait until it comes out. Now, when will that be??? (sorry if I missed the answer somewhere else) What a wonderful premise. If I was Tigger, I'd be bouncing on my tail with happiness. Question, why do people have a love/hate relationship with "chick lit" and "chick flicks" ? It almost reminds me of people who are on diets that say "Oh no, I'd NEVER eat that, I'm on a diet!" meanwhile they've got a whole secret stash of the yummy no-no's that they dip into every chance they get when they think no one is looking. Chick lit is the yummies, and I'm NOT on a diet *grin*. I intend to ENJOY your book when it comes out. In full view of course . TTFN!

The book is out now! I bought my copy a couple of weeks ago at Barnes & Noble. Get thee to a bookstore.

And yay for chick lit!

Michele, it's out! And, it's great! I'm about halfway thru it now and it's very, very fun. You will enjoy it. I think what I'm liking best is its honesty about what it would be like for one of us (of the time of daily showering, deodorant, and toothpaste) to go back to the time of them (no showering, no deodorant and no toothpaste). :-)

Okay...so I'm a little behind the times, but I've never read a Chick Lit book (I'm totally addicted to the HEA), but I gotta tell ya, this is sounding like it's going to be my first one. I read the excerpt on her website and it is terrific!
