Spotlight and Giveaway: New Attitude

Kathryn Biel's latest novel, New Attitude, was recently published. To celebrate, she is giving away e-books of Completions and Connections and Made for Me!

**May contain spoilers for MADE FOR ME**

As if it's not bad enough that I didn't win the reality design TV show I was on, try coming home to a one word note indicating that my ten-year marriage is over. So here I am, a suddenly single mother in my mid-thirties, doing what everyone advises me to do—have a fling. Except it doesn't go as planned, so I do the next best thing, which is sit on the couch and mope. But having to provide for a five-year-old doesn't let me stay home for too long. Before I know it, I'm back to dying my hair wild colors and trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life.

Except Tony, the fling that wasn't, keeps popping up in the most unlikely places and won't leave me alone. I'd like to be strong—I'm way too old for him—but he's cute and funny and sexy and oh, my ex is getting married to a girl named Bambi. All I know is the way I'm doing things isn't working. If I want to be happy again, I'm going to need to get a new attitude.

Telling stories of resilient women, Kathryn Biel hails from Upstate New York and is a wife and mother to two wonderful and energetic kids. In between being Chief Home Officer and Director of Child Development of the Biel household, she works as a school-based physical therapist. She attended Boston University and received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from The Sage Colleges. After years of writing countless letters of medical necessity for wheelchairs, finding increasingly creative ways to encourage the government and insurance companies to fund her clients' needs, and writing entertaining annual Christmas letters, she decided to take a shot at writing the kind of novel that she likes to read. Her musings and rants can be found on her personal blog, Biel Blather. She is the author of Good Intentions (2013), Hold Her Down (2014), I'm Still Here (2014), Jump, Jive, and Wail (2015), Killing Me Softly (2015), Completions and Connections: A Romantic Holiday Novella (2015), Live for This (2016), and Made for Me (2016).

I don't know the names of the movies, but what comes to mind would be one of the movies with Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

As far as musicals, I think I will stick with West Side Story. But there are so many movies with great dancing, too.

Kathryn said...

Thanks Chick Lit Central for having me on today. I've been dancing since I was 5, and have always wished I had the vocal ability to sing so I could be on stage. My favorite musical dance numbers include Tom, Dick, and Harry from Kiss Me Kate! (features Ann Miller, Bob Fosse, and Gwen Verdon), anything from A Chorus Line or Chicago, and Jimmy Cagney doing Give My Regards to Broadway in Yankee Doodle Dandy.

Grease will always be my favorite but I'm not sure if it's ever been on Broadway or anything like that!
