Out Now: Falling For Alice!
New YA Fiction - Foreign Exchange!
Jamie Monroe has always played it safe. That is, until her live-for-the-moment best friend, Tristan, jets
off to Italy on a student exchange program. Left alone with her part-time mother and her disabled
brother, Jamie discovers that she is quite capable of taking her own risks, starting with her best friend’s
hotter-than-hot older brother, Sawyer. Sawyer and Tristan have been neighbors for years, but as Jamie
grows closer to the family she thought she knew, she discovers some pretty big secrets.

As she sinks deeper into their web of pretense, she suspects that her best friend may not be on a safe
exchange program at all. Jamie sets off to Europe on a class trip with plans to meet up with Tristan, but
when Tristan stops all communication, suddenly no one seems trustworthy, least of all the one person
she was starting to trust—Sawyer.

Writers flock to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) each November because it provides a
procrastination-busting deadline. But only a fraction of the participants meet their goal. Denise Jaden was
part of that fraction, writing first drafts of her two published young adult novels during NaNoWriMo. In Fast
Fiction, she shows other writers how to do what she did, step-by-step, writer to writer. Her process starts
with a prep period for thinking through plot, theme, characters, and setting. Then Jaden provides
day-by-day coaching for the thirty-day drafting period. Finally, her revision tips help writers turn merely
workable drafts into compelling and publishable novels.

A portion of publisher proceeds will be donated to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

her, and her perfect boyfriend suddenly seems anything but.
