Letter to Hollywood for FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS



Hey Everyone-

My newest middle grade, FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS was released last week. Though I've been thrilled with the early reviews, one just crossed my desk that really made my day.

It's from The Reading Nook, and the reviewer wrote a letter to Hollywood explain why FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS should be made into a movie. (I must say, she makes a compelling case!) :)

It's been a long held dream of mine to see one of my books adapted for the big or small screen, and while I've had 16 books optioned by Hollywood (11 of those are still currently under option and in various stages of pre-production) it hasn't quite happened yet.

FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS has not yet been optioned, but with this new review/letter you never know, right? At the very least, an author can dream!

Here's an excerpt from the review:


"...I know that superhero movies are all the rage right now – and trust me, I will never tire of Captain America – but Noël’s story is a much-needed one, providing an introspective look at the uncertainty that young tweens go through, when they’re trying to balance innate drive and the desire to be liked.
 
Nick’s journey, as he goes from questioning the merits of his actual life, to the wish-fulfilled pop star life are funny and eye-opening, as he learns about personal relationships, and what he wants and doesn’t want from life. Noël has some genuinely spectacular dialogue detailing Nick’s transformation, which would sound amazing verbalized out loud. Ultimately, his growth will help readers reexamine their own lives too. Don't you want to see this type of compelling story on the screen?"--The Reading Nook



You can read the full review online HERE.

FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS takes place over Christmas, and would make a perfect gift for the young person (or young at heart person!) in your life!

Wishing you all a warm and wonderful holiday!

FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS is in stores today!




Hey Everyone!

I'm so excited to announce that FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS is in stores today! 
(Finally-I feel like I've been waiting on this one forever!).

Just in time for holiday shopping, or a much-needed escape from reality. I had so much fun writing Nick Dashaway's journey as he navigates an alternate world where his greatest Christmas wish comes true!


Here are some reviews:
"Noël writes this Christmas comedy with lots of zing and bubbling humor. . .An amusing Christmas story for preteens." --Kirkus

"Noël has crafted a quick, compelling, energetic modern-day fairy tale for every tween who has ever wished for fame. In the delightful vein of Freaky Friday, there is a lesson here about satisfaction and gratitude, but it runs second to a charming, funny, often surprising, and very current Cinder-fella story. This is a Hollywood blockbuster waiting to happen." --Booklist

"Told in an easygoing, conversational style, the text is appealing and chock-full of humor. VERDICT A unique twist on the typical holiday story, perfect for readers wondering what their dream life would be like." - School Library Journal

"Readers will enjoy getting an imaginary backstage pass to Nick’s indulgent new world, and his mix of swagger and uncertainty make him an entertaining narrator ... The giltz and glamour of Nick’s wish lets readers contemplate the current state of celebrity while helping camouflage the message that the grass isn’t always greener, even when it comes with a mansion and chauffeur."- Publisher's Weekly

"Nick catches the spirit—and sharing that spirit isn’t a bad way for readers to while away some winter break vacation days."--The Bulletin

FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS in stores next week!



Hey Everyone!

After all the waiting I can hardly believe that my new MG, FIVE DAYS of FAMOUS, will be in stores next week on 12.13.16! 


FIVE DAYS of FAMOUS takes place over the Christmas season, and I happen to think it will make the perfect holiday gift for both the young and young at heart!

Here's a brief synopsis:


What would you do if your dream life became reality? 

A dream is a wish your heart makes . . . when your life is in desperate need of a makeover. Nick Dashaway would know; he meets the criteria. His mom is Christmas obsessed, his best friends, Plum and Dougall, are happy to sit at the geek table, and the love of his life, Tinsley Barnes, doesn't even know he exists. Either Nick makes it big this year in seventh grade, or he risks being an invisible nobody forever.
Enter the Greentree Middle School Talent Show, hosted by teen sensation Josh Frost, and Nick has found his ticket out of loserville into top-tier popularity--if the wins. With all the practicing he's been doing, Nick knows he's a shoo-in.
When everything doesn't go according to plan, Nick is ready to do just about anything for a first place finish...and he does. He makes a wish.
Be careful what you wish for, the old saying goes—and Nick's about to find out why.

The reviews for FIVE DAYS have been great- here's a peek at a few:


Booklist:


"Noël has crafted a quick, compelling, energetic modern-day fairy tale for every tween who has ever wished for fame. In the delightful vein of Freaky Friday, there is a lesson here about satisfaction and gratitude, but it runs second to a charming, funny, often surprising, and very current Cinder-fella story. This is a Hollywood blockbuster waiting to happen."


Kirkus:

"Noël writes this Christmas comedy with lots of zing and bubbling humor. . . An amusing Christmas story for preteens."

School Library Journal:

"Told in an easygoing, conversational style, the text is appealing and chock-full of humor. VERDICT A unique twist on the typical holiday story, perfect for readers wondering what their dream life would be like." 

Publishers Weekly:

"Readers will enjoy getting an imaginary backstage pass to Nick’s indulgent new world, and his mix of swagger and uncertainty make him an entertaining narrator ... The giltz and glamour of Nick’s wish lets readers contemplate the current state of celebrity while helping camouflage the message that the grass isn’t always greener, even when it comes with a mansion and chauffeur."- Publisher's Weekly


FIVE DAYS OF FAMOUS is available wherever books are sold, and it's also ready for pre-order at your favorite online retailer. Buy links are available HERE!
I had so much fun writing this book, I hope you all enjoy reading it as well!
Peace * Joy * Love

BEAUTIFUL IDOLS Makeover!

Those of you who know me know I love a good makeover (HGTV is my permanent happy place!), which is why I was both curious and excited when my publisher told me they were planning to refresh the BEAUTIFUL IDOLS covers, beginning with the UNRIVALED paperback release on 01.31.17, followed by book 2, BLACKLIST on 04.04.17. 

While I love the clean, spare look of the original UNRIVALED cover, I do think the new look gives a better idea of what the series is about. The photos were taken by a popular Instagram photographer who often uses LA as a backdrop, and I think he really captures the spirit of the characters and the world I write about. 

Can't wait to see what they come up with for INFAMOUS, the final book, which I'm working on now!

But until then... here they are!

FIVE DAYS of FAMOUS




Hey Everyone!

The release date for my new MG, FIVE DAYS of FAMOUS, is less than 3 months away, and I'm thrilled to see that some great reviews are starting to come in!

From Booklist:

"Noël has crafted a quick, compelling, energetic modern-day fairy tale for every tween who has ever wished for fame. In the delightful vein of Freaky Friday, there is a lesson here about satisfaction and gratitude, but it runs second to a charming, funny, often surprising, and very current Cinder-fella story. This is a Hollywood blockbuster waiting to happen."


From Kirkus:

"Noël writes this Christmas comedy with lots of zing and bubbling humor. . . An amusing Christmas story for preteens."


FIVE DAYS of FAMOUS takes place over the Christmas season, and as it will be available in stores on 12.13.16, I happen to think it will make the perfect holiday gift for both the young and young at heart!

Here's a brief synopsis:

What would you do if your dream life became reality? 
A dream is a wish your heart makes . . . when your life is in desperate need of a makeover. Nick Dashaway would know. Either he makes it big this year in seventh grade or he risks being a nobody forever.
Enter the Greentree Middle School Talent Show, hosted by teen sensation Josh Frost. The show might just be Nick's ticket out of loserville. But popularity doesn't come easy, and when Nick is forcibly ejected from the stage, he feels like he's out of options. Desperate to avoid a permanent seat at the geek table and continued inattention from the love of his life, Nick chooses the only option he has left: he makes a wish.
Be careful what you wish for, the old saying goes—and Nick's about to find out why.

Although the book won't hit stores until 12.13.16, you can ensure your copy by preordering now!  Buy links are available HERE!
I had so much fun writing this book, I hope you all enjoy reading it as well!

UNRIVALED in stores today!!!











Way back in the early days of 2014, I visited the Harper Collins Offices in NYC to meet my editors and celebrate the UNRIVALED deal. They had the conference room set up in a night club theme--disco ball included--and they even had an employee overseeing the door--luckily, I was on the list! I knew at that time that not only was I in good hands, but that this series would be fun to create. Turns out, I was right on both counts.

And now, fast forward to today when UNRIVALED is being ushered into the world in a 1-Day Global Laydown in 16 languages and 200 countries. I am beside myself with excitement!

I've written before about how after concluding the SOUL SEEKERS series I'd decided to take some time off to travel and refill the well, as they say. In publishing math, that made for 3 years between releases, so yeah, I'll admit that in addition to being excited I also might be freaking out just the tiniest bit!

Between 2005 - 2013, I released 21 books, contributed to 3 anthologies, went on countless domestic and international book tours spanning 6 continents, and I'm grateful for every single moment of it, and every amazing reader I've been in contact with along the way. There are many of you that I count as my friends, and I feel so lucky to be able to say that.

I also feel incredibly blessed that I get to create these stories for a living. I've wanted to be a writer since I was 12, but this journey has surpassed even my wildest dreams!

So, in the midst of all my excitement/freak out I wanted to take a moment to thank those of you who've been supporting me for years--I truly couldn't have done it without you! And also to welcome those who are just now discovering my books--I look forward to getting to know you!

I hope that when you read UNRIVALED, you'll come to love Layla, Tommy, Aster, and Madison as much as I have. And for my international readers, I am thrilled that you finally get to read the books at the same time as my US readers!

For all things UNRIVALED, click HERE!

For the international version of all things UNRIVALED, click HERE!

Thanks again for making this release day so special!

Peace * Joy * Love* Hugs to all of you!

New MG Book Deal for THE BONE THIEF!!

Hey Everyone-

In the midst of all the UNRIVALED pre-pub excitement (in stores everywhere May 10!)- I wanted to take a moment to announce my latest book deal for my new middle grade novel THE BONE THIEF!!

From today's Publisher's Weekly:


Krista Vitola at Delacorte has bought The Bone Thief by Alyson Noel. Set in a very strange small town where everything is weird and normal is not a plus, a ragtag team of 11-year-olds with otherworldly abilities set out to solve the mystery behind the sudden onset of “common” events plaguing the town. Publication is planned for fall 2017; Bill Contardi at Brandt & Hochman negotiated the deal for North American rights. 







And speaking of UNRIVALED...






I'm going to announce a super fun pre-order contest very soon- so be sure to check back because you won't want to miss this! To get a head start, you can find the pre-order links HERE. Just be sure to take a photo of your receipt since you might need it later!

Weekend Update!

Hello Everyone!



A big, sparkly thanks to all who came out to see me this past weekend at the LA Times Festival of Books! As many of you already know, I took a year off from writing, which, in the world of publishing, amounts to 3 years between book releases. So it was really fun to be back in front of the readers and seeing so many surprised and excited faces when they realized they were getting a free signed ARC of UNRIVALED a full month before the finished copy is due to hit stores all over the globe!


If you're in the LA area and missed seeing me last weekend, then come see me at YALLWEST in Santa Monica, California on April 30 and May 1st where I'll be taking part in panels and signing more UNRIVALED ARCS. All the details you need can be found HERE!

I'll also be appearing at BookCon in Chicago in May, as well as the Bay Area Book Festival in June- details on both of those events coming soon!

Lots of exciting things are underway: I'm revamping my entire website- with 23 books now in print it was time to streamline a bit and so the wonderful Maddee at Xuni is dreaming up a whole new look that I'll be debuting soon!


Also, for my international readers, Harper Collins has put together an amazing, multi-language site where you can read all about UNRIVALED in your country- you can find it HERE!

And between the events listed above, you can find me holed up in the cave working on more books in the BEAUTIFUL IDOLS series while gearing up for the global release of the first book, UNRIVALED, on May 10!

As always, to keep up on all the latest pics and news you can find me on Twitter Instagram and Facebook

More soon!

Are You on the List?!






So, it's been  a while since I consistently posted on this blog, but with the launch of my new trilogy, Beautiful Idols, set to debut with the first book, UNRIVALED, on May 10, I'm hoping to swing by more often.

If you're thinking it seems like forever since my last book release, well, you're right. After writing 21 novels, contributing to 3 anthologies, and going on countless book tours spanning 5 continents over the course of 8 years, I was pretty exhausted, a little burned out, and decided to take a much needed break.  During that time I traveled, reconnected with family and friends, and refilled the well, as they say. 
And now, 2.5 years later, I'm thrilled to announce that UNRIVALED is set for a simultaneous global release in 17 languages and 200 countries- on May 10!!






UNRIVALED is the first book in the Beautiful Idols series. With mystery, suspense, and an insiders-only look at Los Angeles that echoes Gossip Girl’s racy and real New York, fans of Pretty Little Liars and readers who crave pulse-pounding romance will love Unrivaled.



Here's a sneak peek at the world of UNRIVALED:


Everyone wants to be someone.
Layla Harrison wants to leave her beach-bum days for digs behind a reporter’s desk. Aster Amirpour wants to scream at the next casting director who tells her “we need ethnic but not your kind of ethnic.” Tommy Phillips dreams of buying a twelve-string guitar and using it to shred his way back into his famous absentee dad’s life.
But Madison Brooks took destiny and made it her bitch a long time ago.
She’s Hollywood’s hottest starlet, and the things she did to become the name on everyone’s lips are merely a stain on the pavement, ground beneath her Louboutin heel.
That is, until Layla, Aster, and Tommy find themselves with a VIP invite to the glamorous and gritty world of Los Angeles’s nightlife and lured into a high-stakes competition where Madison Brooks is the target. Just as their hopes begin to gleam like stars through the California smog, Madison Brooks goes missing. . . . And all of their hopes are blacked out in the haze of their lies.
Unrivaled is #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël’s first book in a thrilling suspense trilogy about how our most desperate dreams can become our darkest nightmares.



Praise for UNRIVALED
“Like a good celebrity, Unrivaled is mysterious and compelling and so gorgeous you won’t be able to look away.”— Cecily von Ziegesar, author of the Gossip Girl series
“A glitzy, suspenseful, shamelessly addictive read.” — Margaret Stohl, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Creatures
“If you love Pretty Little Liars, you’ll love this sexy teen drama where every choice poses a threat and nothing is what it seems.”— Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author
of Beautiful Creatures and Unbreakable
Unrivaled will have you hooked from the very first page. Pure gold.”—Jamie McGuire, #1 New York Timesbestselling author of Beautiful Disaster
“Unrivaled reveals the dark, grittier side of fame and leaves the reader caught in a web of suspense and lies.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout


"Pulling back the curtain on Hollywood's nightclub scene, Alyson Noel's Unrivaled has it all-glamour, passion, scandal, and even a missing starlet. This book is exactly what YA needs. More please!" 
- Kimberly Derting, author of the Body Finders series

"UNRIVALED is addictive! With a killer cliffhanger and twists around every corner, I couldn't stop reading this novel. Now I'm impatiently waiting for the second book in the Beautiful Idols series." --Anna Todd, bestselling author of the After series 

"Noel cycles among the stories of Layla, Tommy, Aster, and Madison in a gossipy, third-person narrative that makes for addictive reading ..." - Publisher's Weekly

"Noël aims for the celebrity-hungry chick-lit crowd and scores...Chick-lit gold." - Kirkus



If you're in the LA area, I'll be singing early copies of UNRIVALED at  the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books as well as Yallwest in April- details coming soon! 

And I'm thrilled to announce that pre-orders are now available at the following locations:

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Books-A-Million

IdieBound 


I always say I have The Best Readers Ever (because it's true!) and I want to thank you for all of your amazing support through the years! I'm having so much fun writing this new series and I hope you enjoy reading it too!

See you soon, but for now wishing you much Peace * Joy* Love!

Alyson Noel
