Title: Love Literary Style
Author:  Karin Gillespie
Publisher: Henery Press
Release Date:  November 1, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

They say opposites attract, and what could be more opposite than a stuffy literary writer falling for a self-published romance writer?

Novelist Aaron Mite meets Laurie Lee at a writers’ colony and mistakenly believes her to be a renowned writer of important fiction. When he discovers she’s a self-published romance author, he’s already fallen in love with her.

Aaron thinks genre fiction is an affront to the fiction-writing craft. He often quotes the essayist, Arthur Krystal who says literary fiction “melts the frozen sea inside of us.” Ironically Aaron doesn’t seem to realize that he’s emotionally frozen. The vivacious Laurie, lover of flamingo-patterned attire and all things hot pink, is the one person who might be capable of melting him.

In the tradition of The Rosie Project, Love Literary Style is a sparkling romantic comedy which pokes fun at the divide between low and high brow fiction. 

Delightful with a taste of witty dialogue, Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie will gratify any fan of romantic comedy in a literary sense. Our characters are extreme opposites, yet their dreams of being a true novelist coincides. Now, what does a true novelist entail? If you ask our main characters, I can tell you they have very different ideas, and they makes for some great banter. Authors, publishers, literary critics, and agents are all characters we read about in this novel, and I can tell you, they are quite the group. Sometimes, it's almost to a point of self-deprecating the profession that it's laughable.  Topping with professional prejudices that may very well drive our main couple apart, their experiences seems to connect these two on a more personal level.  Love Literary Style is simple, yet filled with messages of looking beyond the surface or the name, finding what matters in the heart.
