It Started With a Kiss week 10: The handsome stranger!
All this year, I'm keeping a video diary of everything that goes into writing my third novel, It Started With a Kiss, due to be published on 10th November. This week, meet the mystery man who Romily is searching for and find out what I think is the perfect recipe for a great chick-lit novel...
Last time, I shared with you my dream cast for It Started With a Kiss and thanks so much for all of your fab comments about them! But of course one of the most important characters was missing: the mystery stranger who comes to Romily's aid and, with one amazing, show-stopping kiss, sets Rom on a year-long quest to find him again. But will she find him? And what happens when Charlie - the guy she's been in love with for three years - suddenly starts to see her as girlfriend material? Who will she choose....? To see my casting choice for the handsome stranger, look below this week's vlog!
This week, lots more editing, including a big change to the opening chapter of the book, plus fab questions from Kirsty from Novelicious, Dot from Dot Scribbles and Paige Conlon - including my personal checklist for the key elements that make fantastic chick lit stories. Let me know what you think - what do you look for in a perfect chick lit book?
p.s. This week's YouTube selected freeze frame is entitled, 'Three Sheets to the Wind (in a Hat)'
So, here's my choice for THE MYSTERY MAN
played by Henry Cavill (recently seen in BBC1's The Tudors and soon to be Superman!)
So would you spend a year searching for this man? Let me know!
