Extreme Makeover: CLIND!
Do you like it? (Please, say you do!)
Happy 4th birthday to Chick Lit Is Not Dead!
It's been a roller coaster ride these past four years, and we've loved every minute of it. And you know what else we love? YOU GUYS. Y'all are the best. Without you, well, we'd just be two lameass girls talking to ourselves.
And it's not just a new look here at CLIND--we've got all kinds of new features too! Of course, we'll still be interviewing all of your favorite authors and whoring it up with giveaways, but we'll also be talking some shit and taking you with us on our (still very surreal) road to publication. In our new feature, On Our Radar, we'll tell you what we're loving at the moment--anything from books to movies to twitter hashtags. We'll also be tackling something outside of our comfort zone for 24 HOURS (think: no nagging or no technology!). Remember Liz vs. Lisa and On The Soapbox? They're baccckkkk! And that's not all! We'll be checking in with some of our favorite websites with our new Blog of the Month feature. And, last but not least, we'll keep you in the loop on our writing drama with Diary of a Debut.
Other fun things to check out? If you scroll down, you'll find some inspirational quotes we love. And we've detailed our L&L history and found some old pics that we've posted over at the About Liz & Lisa page. We've also streamlined our submissions process--make sure you check out the Contact if you want your book or blog profiled on CLIND.
We'd like to give a HUGE shout out to our web designers, Betsy Cohen and her team at Positive Element. It's not an understatement to say we were HUGE pains in the asses(Who knew it was so hard to choose a font?) to work with on this redesign and they couldn't have been more patient, understanding or professional. Thank you!
Also, we want to thank YOU. Who knew, four years ago, when we didn't even understand how to log onto WordPress properly or what the hell a SEO search was, that we'd be here today? It's all because of YOU. YOU make this fun for us.
Of course there's a COOL giveaway...duh!
To celebrate our fourth year, we're giving away FOUR books. But not random books. FOUR books off YOUR wish list. If you win, you'll send us a list of ANY four you'd like and we'll order them for you. HOW RAD IS THAT?
But to enter, we need you to do a little somethin' somethin' for us. See all those social media icons up top? We'll give you one entry for EACH site where you follow us. Just leave a comment and let us know where you're giving us the love. Got it? Follow us at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram--that is FOUR entries! If you already follow us on any of these sites, just tell us that in the comments and you'll still be entered! Haven't clicked follow yet? Then get your booty over there! (pretty please!)
We'll choose the lucky winner after February 10th at noon PST.
So, are you ready to raise a toast? *clinks glasses* Here's to a freakin' awesome 2013!
