Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, authors of Your Perfect Life (Washington Square Press) have been best friends for twenty-five years and survived high school and college together. They’ve written the story of two childhood best friends who wake up the morning after their twentieth high school reunion to discover that they’ve switched bodies and need to figure out how to navigate their altered realities.
Says New York Times best-selling author Sarah Jio:
I loved this from the very first line (which will go down in history as the funniest, bravest first line ever). Hilarious, honest and truly touching, Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke are two important new voices in women’s fiction who write about life in such a real, relatable way.
Liz lives in San Diego with her husband and two children. Lisa, a former talk show producer, now lives in Chicago with her husband, daughter, and two bonus children.
We really can’t describe the feeling when we received that email from our now editor. The one that begins: I want to buy your book! We screamed, we laughed, one of us may have even cried a little (Liz!), and we both thought one thing: This is it! We’ve made it!
Little did we know it was only the beginning…
Countless times, we’ve read debut novels that entranced us. We’d devour them, then sing the author’s praises to anyone who would listen. And we were always baffled if said book didn’t take off and top the bestseller lists. In some cases, the author never wrote another. How could that happen? If a book is wonderful, it should prevail, right?
Wrong. There are a ton of factors that go into a successful book launch and writing a fantastic book is only one of them.
