"Are you the next Nora Ephron or Nancy Meyers? If you've ever dreamed of writing a romantic comedy that stands the test of time, Lana Schwartz provides inspiration to create your own happily ever after, in a variety of different ways. With warmth, wit and surprises, Schwartz's gift for storytelling shines through in every twist and turn of her love letter to a beloved genre. Saint Nora would approve."

--Erin Carlson "author, I'll Have What She's Having: How Nora Ephron's Three Iconic Films Saved the Romantic Comedy"
"As someone who has seen nearly every rom com ever produced and has had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that Hugh Grant made a finite number of movies in the '90s, I so appreciate that Lana Schwartz has written this charming, funny book which allows you to create as many new rom coms as your heart desires."

--Blythe Roberson "author of How to Date Men When You Hate Men"
