)-- Reading the latest pink cover titles of chick lit and watching the all-pink wedding of Bachelorette Trista and Ryan, Kathy Holmes wrote "Real Women Wear Red" as an antithesis to all of that. This story isn't limited to one age group: it's a story about 3 women from 3 different generations: 20-something, 40-something, and 60-something and these women wear red because that’s a woman’s color—not pink. And no matter their age age—they are all women and they all want the same things.
No matter their age, women want to read contemporary women’s fiction that has the same tone, the same attitude, the same search for the inner woman and what she’s looking for that she thinks will make her life happy. Ms. Holmes wants to write about the questions that women ask themselves - questions asked at any age. Questions such as, "My life isn’t working and I desperately need to change something, but what? Is it time to get married? Will I ever get married? Will I ever have kids? Do I even want kids? Should I buy a house? Settle down? Move to Paris? Change careers? What is it I’m supposed to be doing with my life?"
Holmes has been called a “trendsetter” and that she's ahead of her time. And maybe "I was when I began writing this book as a twist on the whole pink cover, chick lit trend," she says. But she insists the time is now, the place is here, and women of all ages are waiting for the real “women’s fiction with attitude.”
