Samantha March started Chick Lit Plus in October of 2009 as a seed of an idea – to help her become a published author. Already an avid reader, she loved expressing her views about books and talking about writing, so it seemed obvious to jump on the blog explosion. She first started reviewing books she found at the library, and after only one month of blogging was offered to interview Jackie Collins. Since then, Chick Lit Plus has expanded to include two associate reviewers, a blog tour company CLP Blog Tours, and a publishing company, Marching Ink.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what celebrity would you want to be with you?
Samantha: Channing Tatum – how obvious is that one, ladies?
Sara: Do I have to pick just one? I would go with Tim Duncan (Go Spurs Go!), Emily Giffin (huge fan) and Paula Deen (because there might be buttah on the island).
What's one inanimate object you can't live without?
Samantha: Laptop - it is my life.
Sara: My iPhone. Hands down.
What books are you adding to your bookshelf this year?
Samantha: Waaaay too many list! I’m excited for Allie Larkin, Sarah Pekkanen, Sarah Jio, and Anita Hughes. Also I’m hoping to add another from Marching Ink’s Cat Lavoie, CLP’s own Sara Palacios, and possibly even myself this year!
