Sharing some news

I am so excited for my friend, Aimee L. Salter. Her book has been acquired by Alloy Entertainment as part of their new digital first imprint. 
 
Here’s all the goss!
 
The Media Release: 
 
Today, Amazon
Publishing and Alloy Entertainment, a division of Warner Bros. Television Group, announced a digital-first imprint that will focus on young adult, new adult and commercial fiction.

The new imprint, named Alloy Entertainment, will be part of Amazon Publishing’s Powered by Amazon program. Powered by Amazon enables publishers and authors to leverage Amazon’s global distribution and personalized, targeted marketing reach.

Alloy Entertainment, a division of the Warner Bros. Television Group, develops and produces original novels, television series and feature films.  All titles in the new Alloy imprint will have the advantage of being part of group that aggressively supports and promotes its properties. 
In fact, more than 75 of AE’s books have been on The New York Times bestseller list, including The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Luxe, Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line, and The 100.
Every Ugly Word will be one of the first of three titles to be released under the newly launched imprint.

Alloy Entertainment will also look for opportunities to develop acquired titles as television series, feature films, and digital entertainment.
 
 
 
 

Every ugly word follows 17 year old Asley who is relentlessly bullied at her high school and by her own mother, and his helplessly in love with her best friend, Matt, who is bullied by his father.

She seeks help by looking to her future self, “Older Me” who supports her through it all and teaches her to love herself. But is she really seeking “Older Me” or is she looking within herself for the answers?
When Ashley looks in the mirror she can see and talk to her future self. “Older Me” has been her support system through her relentless tormentor’s bullying, her unstable mother at home, and her forlorn love for her longtime best friend. But when Ashley discovers “Older Me’s” betrayal, she is targeted in the worst way and impends her last chance with Matt. She’s done with hearing every ugly word.

Praise for Every Ugly Word
“Original.
Authentic. Heart-breaking….Officially one of my favorites!”
— Cora Carmack, New York Times Bestselling
author of Losing It.
“A
gripping story about a teen facing her demons with twists you won’t see coming, Every Ugly Word is a chilling and heartbreaking debut
with raw emotion searing every page. I couldn’t put it down.”­
 — Katie
Sise, author of The Boyfriend
App.
 

Every Ugly Word is a
punch to the gut from chapter one. The tension and mystery build through every
page to an inevitable showdown that left me breathless. With a splintered
protagonist you can’t help but root for, you’ll battle through the worst of
humanity’s ugliness to emerge at the end dirty and broken and full of
hope.”
