Interview and Giveaway With Sisterhood of Heartbreaker's Author Lynn Weingarten


Y'all, I cannot tell you how excited I am to have Lynn Weingarten on my blog today. I really enjoyed reading her first novel Wherever Nina Lies, and today, Lynn's here to talk about her upcoming novel The Sisterhood of Heartbreakers. Without furthur ado, here's Lynn!

1. How did you come up with the idea for The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers?

A friend of mine was reading a book about how to pick up girls and I read it because I was curious. In the book there are groups of guys who go around together doing this and I was thinking it would be fun if there was a group of girls who did the same thing, only with a little magic involved.  


2. If there was a SSoH when you were in high school, do you think you'd be apart of it?


Ha! No, I don't think so. But if there had been a Secret Sisterhood of Ridiculous Dances or a Secret Sisterhood of Hanging Out at Lizzie's House I would definitely have been a member of those.

3. Who is your favorite literary couple?
Lily and James Potter.

(YES!  I think I just fell in love with you!)


4. Will The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers be a series or a standalone?


There will be a sequel, which I am right now in the process of revising. Just before starting to answer these questions I changed the line, "somewhere in Canada" to "in a bathroom in Toronto." Yup!

(HAAAAH!  What are they doing in the bathroom?  *raises eyebrows*)


5. Any advice for girls who have had their hearts broken?

Listen to loud music and scream along, hang out with friends, read some sad books, read some happy books (but no love stories!), watch stupid TV, find a dog to play with, get a million hugs, eat candy, eat healthy stuff, get enough sleep.

AWESOME advice!  Lynn, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer a few questions for us.    Be sure to check out The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers when it releases December 27, 2011!

  14. I am very excited for this book to come out I love the whole concept of the story and it just seems like a great read. I'm already excited there is a sequel to this. Lily and James Potter are awesome I mean come on they gave us Harry and I am so in love with him(Daniel Radcliffe is hott). If anything else were to happen with the HP franchise I would love to see a prequel with James, Sirius, Lily, Snape, and everyone when they were younger. Thank you for this giveaway and great interview.

  16. Lily and James! Could there be any better answer? Very looking forward to reading this book! As for the advice on a broken heart- lots of sleep, for sure. Friends also help a lot, but when I got my heart broken a few years back, they all seemed to leave me behind because of their new friendship with my ex!

    Thanks for the giveaway!
