November newsletter

Happy November! 

Whew! This has been a busy month. I wrote a short story and started a new book, all while dealing with hurricane winds and renovations on our home. Amidst all of the rain, my daily word count went crazy -- which is good, because I have been in a bit of a writing slump lately. 

This month is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, as it is commonly called)! I have accepted the NaNoWriMo Challenge, which is to write 50,000 words in one month. Today, which is day seven of the month, I am at 13,000 words, which is pretty much on schedule. Let me get deeper into this bad boy and then I will spill more details, maybe in next month's newsletter. :) 

This newsletter does have some exciting news to share, so be sure to read all the way through it!

IF YOU DARE

 

If You Dare, the third book in the award-winning Deanna Madden series...

The rules are the same. I can't open the door. I can't leave. I can't kill anyone.

The only difference is, I don't set the rules anymore. Guards in grey uniforms do. It is everything I never wanted and everything I always deserved. I write to you now, from a prison cell. My home for the next twenty to thirty years.

That's the going term for murder.

Want more Hollywood Dirt? 

   A month or so ago, I was approached about writing a short story for an anthology. An anthology is a collection of short stories from different authors. I almost passed on the request, I don't have a lot of ideas for short stories floating around in my head. But then ... I thought about all of the requests I've had for a Hollywood Dirt sequel. I don't plan to write a sequel, but I did want to give the readers a little present -- a glimpse of life AFTER Hollywood Dirt ends. So I decided to join in on the anthology, with a short story set after Hollywood Dirt ends. Below is a peek at the title and description, the January newsletter will have the purchase links and full info on the anthology, which will be priced at just 99 cents! 

 

Thank you so much for your support!!! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hugs,
Alessandra
