San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2007
After 15 years advising the lovelorn and dating-weary readers of Elle magazine, E. Jean Carroll has joined forces with the editors at Sugar Publishing to write for DearSugar.com. Beginning today, Carroll will bring her no-nonsense brand of advice to the Sugar Network with a weekly column featuring answers to DearSugar's readers' most beguiling questions.
"We are elated to have such a veteran female advice journalist join our DearSugar team to give guidance to our readers," said Lisa Sugar, Editor in Chief of Sugar Publishing. "E. Jean Carroll's witty, straightforward advice complements our inquisitive communities' search for genuine answers."
On a weekly basis, Carroll will work with DearSugar's editor to select the most provocative letters to answer on DearSugar.com. Carroll's posts will join DearSugar's daily posts offering creative solutions to reader-posted problems and weekly features, including:
With the addition of E. Jean, DearSugar.com will also now include a feature where readers can type in a question anonymously and receive an instant video answer from E. Jean herself.
"The Sugar Network is brilliant!" said E. Jean Carroll. "It possesses an unmatched eye for the culture of celebrity, fashion, entertainment and advice. It's a thrill to join the Sugar Network, not merely because its dedicated sites are of such infectious interest for clever young women, and not only because DearSugar and AskEJean.com would be perfect partners . . . but because I am personally, seriously addicted to PopSugar!"
E. Jean's Ask E. Jean column has appeared in Elle since 1993, where her frank replies to readers' relationship problems have won her a strong following. In addition to the column, Carroll has been nominated for an Emmy for her writing for Saturday Night Live, served as a contributing editor at Esquire and Outside, written for Rolling Stone and authored four books, including Mr. Right, Right Now and Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson. She is the co-founder of GreatBoyfriends.com and recently launched AskEJean.com, a website based on her Elle magazine column.
