Think Different
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them,
glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
While some may see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Novelista Girl

One of my favorite authors, Meredith Schorr, has just released her latest novel. I’m not alone in my excitement about Novelista Girl. Schoor has received rave reviews for her previous books and rightly so. They are imbued with witty and engaging characters who are relatable as well as entertaining.

Romantic comedy just happens to be my favorite “genre”. In fact, research has shown that laughter is indeed a cure for what ails one. Of course, as in real life not everything that occurs is funny which means conflict and mistakes and messy relationships are a part of life for the characters as well.

Here’s a short summary describing what awaits readers of Novelista Girl:

Readers first met sassy Kimberly Long in Blogger Girl, and now the feisty New Yorker is back in a standalone sequel packed with quick wit, friendship, heartache, and, of course, romance.Kim runs the most popular chick lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her life-long dream to become a published author. At first glance, her life is five-pink-champagne-flutes worthy.But is there more to the story than meets the eye?”
