The Chick Lit Bee Launches Campaign to Get
Bestselling Author Emily Giffin
on Dancing with the Stars
Popular book blog seeks a coveted spot on hugely successful dance competition television show for beloved women’s fiction author.
(April 2013, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA) – The Chick Lit Bee wants Emily Giffin to be the first author to join the cast of Dancing with the Stars. A well-known blog in the chick lit/women’s fiction community since 2010, The Chick Lit Bee is confident that a social media campaign for Emily will get the attention of the show’s producers.
“Emily’s participation in a show of this magnitude would give a lot of attention to chick lit and women’s fiction,” says Nancy Scrofano, founder and managing editor of The Chick Lit Bee. “It would be a huge platform for these genres, including their authors and readers, to get the recognition and respect they so deserve. Emily is an excellent representative for books that are written for women about issues that concern women. She can bring our love and passion for chick lit and women’s fiction to a national stage.”
The campaign exists primarily through Facebook (www.facebook.com/EmilyGiffinDWTS) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/EmilyGiffinDWTS) where the numbers of likes and followers are extremely important. In order to receive the kind of attention necessary for success, social media users’ support is paramount. The Chick Lit Bee wants to build a community of people who are fans of Emily Giffin and of chick lit and women’s fiction and who want to see an author-first join the Dancing with the Stars cast.
“Emily is a talented, hardworking, dedicated author and deserves a spot on the show. She isn’t a celebrity in the tabloids, but she is a star,” continues Scrofano. “Emily is America’s author sweetheart. Women around the world adore her and her novels. She is likeable and honest, and that’s why so many people can relate to her. Plus, Emily doesn’t have a background in dance or performing arts and would learn to dance from scratch, which is the heart of the show.”
The Chick Lit Bee encourages people to show their support by liking the campaign’s Facebook page, following the campaign’s Twitter account, and asking their friends and followers to do the same.
