Hey everyone! While’s it’s true I’m retiring from Chicklitbooks.com, a new owner will be taking over. Everyone meet Jill Knapp-Zitron, author of Chase and blogger for Huffington Post! She will officially be taking over the site from here on out. In addition to adult Women’s Fiction, she will also be blogging about New Adult, and Teen. You can follow her on Twitter here.
Here’s a little bit about Jill- she’s a native New Yorker, and the author of the Chase series (New Adult/ Women’s Fiction). A regular contributor to the Huffington Post, Knapp-Zitron reports on entertainment, relationships and the differences between city and suburban lifestyles. She received a Masters Degree in Psychology while living in Manhattan. She currently lives in the south with her husband and two dogs.
Here’s a synopsis of her novel, Chase-
The question that 23-year old Amalia Hastings wants the answer to is: What happens to men when they move to Manhattan?
Life in the big city gives Amalia a ride she is not expecting. As she tries to find her way on the little island that never sleeps, she discovers she has a harder time navigating through life then she does the streets of Greenwich Village and finds herself truly lost in the complex world of men, graduate school, money, family, and friendship.
She thought she had everything she wanted – a new apartment in Manhattan, a first-rate education at NYU, a group of trusted friends and Nicholas, a boyfriend who she once believed was her soul-mate. But somehow, it isn’t enough.
Stumbling through her relationships, Amalia encounters Michael. An attractive classmate who quickly moves from being one of her close friends, to an inconsistent friend-with-benefits. After all, the only thing consistent about New York is its beauty.
After getting terribly lost searching for love in all the wrong places, Amalia finds herself torn between the possibility of a relationship, and an adventure she’s been planning all along.
She eventually realizes that solely chasing love closes her off to all of the other good things life has to offer. Now she must decide – what is worth the chase?
Now the site will remain up and running, with a new administrator. Thanks for everything!
