About this author

I’m Monica Alexander. I write books. I read books. I listen to a lot of music. And sometimes (more times than I actually realize it) that music works its way into my stories. I love the Florida Gators and the Boston Red Sox, and I have a fashion addiction. I’m also a hopeless romantic.

“For a moment a band of thieves in ripped up jeans got to rule the world.” – Taylor Swift

It forces me to get out of the house and away from my writing for a while. Most of the time it'll help clear my head enough that I can come back to the scene and push through it. But music also makes me think of other stories - the ones in the lyrics of the songs - and sometimes that will spark an idea I never knew was there. It can be incredibly therapeutic and inspiring at the same time.(less)

Okay, so I did this cool thing with Amazon that I've never done before and uploaded Haunted tonight. It'll be officially available for pre-order tomorrow with a release date of Friday, 1/16. It's a cool feature for authors, and I'm excited to use it for the first time.

In addition, because some of you think it's a fun addition to the story, here's the playlist for the book :) Happy listening!

"I re-read this book last night for probably the 7th time. I've been in such a reading rut lately; I'll start a book and not finish it. I don't know if it's the quality of books I'm picking or if there just haven't been any great books to come out..." Read more of this review »

Piper Vaughn Thanks for the friend request! :)

Jaime Monica, I love that you're reading m/m :) I don't know if you read this one(I guess I could check your shelves)but it is one of my faves I'll Be Your Drill, Soldier by Crystal Rose


Monica Alexander I'll definitely add Cole's story to the list :) No bribing needed!


message 5: by Jaime

Jaime So what can I bribe you with so I get Cole's story ;)


Christine I'm currently reading Buried Castles, and I know Zack & Emily have their songs, but I definitely think Paramore's 'The Only Exception' describes them perfectly. Excited to hear there will be a third book! Please don't make us wait long!


Monica Alexander Thanks! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed my books :) It still amazes me when someone tells me that because I never thought I'd get to the point of others reading them. Thank God for self-publishing :)

You know, when I went back and read Broken Fairytales as a full book, I wasn't a big Emily fan either since she was really stuffy and judgmental, but I knew I had to portray her that way to show how she could grow and evolve. My hope is that people can get past her whiny parts and like the person she becomes.

I'm currently working on a stand-alone Mature YA novel that I'm hoping to have out this fall :)

Take care,
Monica


Maggie Simms Love all your books! They are all good (though Aftershocks is my favorite) :)

I just got done reading Buried Castles. I am glad that I didn't have to wait a lot for the sequel to Broken Fairy tales. I enjoyed the personal growth that Emily developed. I didn't like her at the start of Broken Fairy tales but I am sure that was your intention.

Are you currently working on another book?


message 1: by Elena

Elena Aitken Hi Monica, Thanks for the friendship! I'm looking forward to checking out 'Just Watch The Fireworks'!
