Chick Lit Fans Unite
Sub-Genre Begets Many Sub-Genres
Helen Fieldings’ Bridget Jones and her infamous Diary introduced the world to the nontraditional romance novel—Chick Lit, they call it—and publishing—and readers—haven’t been quite the same since. According to a recent article on ABC.com, Chick Lit now “fuels the publishing industry.”
Not to be topped, nor to miss out on a bona fide publishing trend, Christian publishing houses (who had already seen what the Left Behind juggernaut had wrought in their camp) were quick to, as USA Today put it, "put their faith in 'churchified' Chick Lit." Traditional Christian houses have fired their own salvoes into this mostly pastel-covered fray.
And black publishers! Their female readers must have something to read that transcends the mere romance. Enter "Sista Lit." And the black Christian female readers! Where will it all end?
Not to worry. Chicklitbooks.com has it all in hand. The pages of this fan site manage this muddle by title, author, publisher and type, as it says, From A – Z. Chicklitbooks.com boasts pages for books devoted to “Mommy Lit,” “Big Girl Lit,” and “Christian Chick Lit,” with titles as diverse as Kristin Billerbeck's She's Out of Control and Melissa Lea Leedom’s To Forgive, Divine.
On Chicklitbooks.com, Chick Lit fans can read reviews of what’s out, see what will be out soon, BLOG about what’s been said, BLOG about the movies that have been made from Chick Lit—it’s a virtual party line, curlers in your hair pajama party.
It’s a chick thing, guys. You wouldn’t understand.
