Miss Chick Lit Pageant


Hello all!  In case you didn’t know, May is Chick Lit Month, so a bunch of my chick lit writer friends and I are celebrating this week with chick lit-themed posts and giveaways.  My two e-books, Twenty-Five and Honor’s Lark, will be on sale for $0.99 all week, and on Friday, the other ladies books will also be on sale for $0.99.

Physical Inspiration for Honor – Zoe Saldana

Our first post is the Miss Chick Lit Pageant and my contestant is Honor Sandoval from Honor’s Lark!

Welcome, Honor!  Tell us a little about yourself.

“I’m Honor Sandoval and I’m here representing Linhill*.  I’m a 30 year old former ballerina with a love for baking and sarcasm.  Not really sure what I’m doing here because I really don’t need anyone else’s validation.”

*Linhill is the city Honor lives in, in the fictional region of Belburn, in the Lark universe.

Swimsuit Competition:

Honor, what are you wearing at the beach this summer?

“I like clean and classic styles.  I love this suit because it looks like something I could have worn when performing with the dance company.”

Talent Competition:

Honor’s talent is an original solo ballet she choreographed.  Something along the lines of this:

Her dance is inspired by the range of emotions she went through when she injured herself and ended her ballet career, lost both her lifegivers, and met the love of her life, Sedric.


Honor, which awesome fashion trend do you wish would make a comeback? And which awful fashion trend do you hope to never see again?

“Like I said earlier, I simple simple and classic styles.  I love leggings and billowy tops & dresses that allow for maximum comfort.  I hate anything binding.  I don’t want to tie myself down in life, why would I in my clothes?”

Thanks, Honor!  Good luck in the Pageant!
