Publishers Put Christian Spin on Chick Lit

Posted on March 28, 2005

Christian chick lit is a hot market. Christian readers are eagerly buying up the titles that combine Bridget Jones styled single women stories with Christian values. Joan Marlow Golan of Harlequin Publishing talked to the Today Show and explained how the Christian chick lit is different from the rest.

Golan says, "In the Christian version, it would also be, 'What is God's purpose for me?' The purpose-driven life, that's what they are looking for. 'How do I live authentically in the kind of world we live in?'"

Today described Christian chick lit as "a new brand of wholesome entertainment about modern life." Today also provided an excerpt of the Christian chick lit novel, What a Girl Wants by Kristin Billerbeck.
