Merry Chick Lit: Six Sassy Shorts Raising Funds for Breast Cancer

I am honored to help get the word out about Merry Chick Lit, a wonderful, heartwarming anthology that not only features six fantastic stories but was created to benefit the charity Rocking the Road for a Cure. A NY based breast cancer charity, Rocking the Road for a Cure sends out volunteers to help women with breast cancer with their everyday actives such as shopping, errands, laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc. All proceeds for the book will go to this charity. 

Most of us have been devastated by cancer in some way, and I am proud to know these authors who have given their time and talent to make the lives of those suffering from breast cancer a little easier. 

That sparkly, wintry cover makes me want to crawl under the covers with a mug of hot chocolate. Merry Chick Lit features stories by:

Nikki Mahood
In "Spinster Christmas," Cara's looking forward to spending Christmas alone until she learns her old--and she believes very gay--crush needs a place to stay. Though it soon becomes clear that while still hot, Ronan isn't gay after all...
Holly Martin
Ella's dreams of making a better life for her and her daughter seem further away than ever in "Iced Dreams." But as Christmas approaches, and she wishes for a fairy godmother to wave a magic wand to fix her life, things begin to change in ways she never imagined!
K.C. Wilder
In "The Mermaid," Allie's content to spend Christmas by herself at a vacant beach house to make good on a promise made to her true love lost, Jeff. Until Jeff's gorgeous college roommate Tim crashes in on her with his own promise to keep...

Rocking The Road For A Cure is tickled PINK to be selected as the recipient of proceeds from your purchase of Merry Chick Lit.
We are a growing 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the New York City/Long Island area, dedicated to improving the quality of life of people undergoing the often energy-depleting and emotionally draining treatments for breast cancer.
Our name came from our founder and President, Dawn Frey, a musician, who learned through personal experience that “it takes a village” to get through the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and not every individual has the support network they need. Rocking The Road For A Cure provides free, in-home housekeeping, health and wellness services to restore strength and confidence, and to rebuild spiritual, emotional and physical well-being.
So, when you settle back and relax to enjoy reading Merry Chick Lit, please know that you have helped us help a breast cancer patient to also settle back and relax…and heal.


  1. couldn't agree more and I'm already half way through the book. As Francine was the only author whose work I had read before, it would make me look at the others' now, too. Keep up the good work, Ladies, and hope the book makes a ton for charity, Sooz

  2. I got my copy! Haven't had a chance to read it yet though. Hopefully once I get past Thanksgiving I'll have some more time! Looking forward to enjoying it with a cup of hot cocoa. Hope the book raises a bunch of money!!
