Four sexy women. Four sexy cities. Top Latina authors Mary Castillo, Berta Platas, Caridad Pineiro and Sofia Quintero combine these elements to create four unforgettable novellas in FRIDAY NIGHT CHICAS from St. Martin’s Griffin. Whether they’re flirting en espanol, gossiping over mojitos, or dancing with their latest papi chulos, these strong and independent women prove that there is nothing quite like a night out with your friends. Set in New York City, Miami’s South Beach, downtown Chicago, and Los Angeles, FRIDAY NIGHT CHICAS explores dating, marriage, friendship, and sex, through the eyes of four different women. FRIDAY NIGHT CHICAS is available in April 2005.

Hollywood development exec Isela Vargas isn't looking for a one night stand; she's desperate for one last shot at saving her career. But the night and a gorgeous stranger have different plans in My Favorite Mistake by Mary Castillo. “This story was an homage to the city of L.A. and the stunning movie palaces built in the 1920s and 30s,” Castillo said. “That, and I always wanted to explore that very fine line between using your sexuality to get what you want, and indulging in your sexuality.” Mary’s single title release, HOT TAMARA, will debut in March 2005. A comedy about Mexican mamas and their independent hijas, Mary tells the story of Tamara Contreras who swears off unmemorable sex. She packs it up and moves to L.A. where she's ready to get the single-girl-in-the-city thing down. But when true love and an unexpected career opportunity land in her lap, can she settle for one or the other?

For Cali Montalvo, revenge is a dish best served with a mojito--with fresh mint, of course. Author Berta Platas explores the darker side of high school reunions in Revenge of the Fashion Goddess, as Cali, an up and coming New York fashion designer, can’t resist showing off to the girls who made her nerdy teen years miserable, and to the Italian bad boy who made her tingle. Forgive and forget? Vete al Diablo. “Cali gets to be as bad as I want to be,” said Berta. “Sex, Mojitos, and Manolos – yum!” Her next project is CINDERELLA LOPEZ, from St. Martin’s in the Fall of 2005. “An MTV fairy tale,” Berta says. “You know how hard it is to walk in glass stilettos?"

The ultimate gamble is one that pays off for Tori Rodriguez in Caridad Pineiro’s Hearts Are Wild. On the night of her thirtieth birthday, all Tori wants to do is have a nice quiet day with her family and friends, but that is not meant to be. “Tori is like many successful professional women hitting thirty and suddenly finding out that life has become boring and predictable,” says Pineiro. “On this special night, Tori finally decides to shake up her vida-not-so-loca.” Caridad understands Tori well, having experienced similar feelings when she reached thirty. Her solution – launching a writing career that now includes several novels, including THE CALLING, a sensual vampire series from Silhouette Intimate Moments. The first book in the series, DARKNESS CALLS, debuted in March 2004. Look for DANGER CALLS and TEMPTATION CALLS in 2005.

New York City never sleeps and therefore is the perfect place for Gladys's bachelorette party in Sofía Quintero's The More Things Change. Gladys's college friends whisk her off to Studs – the hottest male revue in the Big Apple. Apparently, a little too hot because the show's over and Glady has disappeared with the closing act. "Parts of my novella are based on true events," says Sofía. "But I'm not telling which." Under the pen name Black Artemis, Sofía wrote the hip hop novel EXPLICIT CONTENT published by Penguin's New American Library. Her second Black Artemis novel PICTURE ME ROLLIN' about a young Latina who's obsessed with Tupac Shakur hits shelves in June 2005. Under her real name, Sofía also will publish her chick lit novels INTERSTATES and OSHUN'S ARRANGEMENT with One World/Random House next year.

Professional Reviews

4 Stars: Romantic Times
Romantic Times says:
"A delicious recipe of flavorful characters and humorous dialogue mixed with comical action makes Friday Night Chicas worth reading. . .Tori, Isela, Cali, and Gladys prove that life is all about taking risks. Each story is unique, well-structured, and these Latina women exemplify poise, success and intelligent, a knockout combination."
