So, I've just returned from 2 amazing weeks vacationing in Prague, Budapest, Vienna, and London where I ate my weight in Sacher Tortes

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.
