HUNTING LILA is on sale at the moment on Kindle for just £1.49 - spread the word! AND... my new novel COME BACK TO ME (published under my pen name Mila Gray) is also on sale - for just 99p.

It's set in Oceanside, just like the Lila books, and is about two marines on the base at Pendleton...one of whom is in love with his best friend's sister... :) this one is a straight up contemp romance.

Quotes Sarah Liked

Sarah Alderson
“Well good, I think, maybe he’s thinking that he’s being a total tool and reassessing the whole idea. Maybe he’s going to figure out that going to jail would be a dumb idea. And that kissing me would be a not so dumb idea. Goddamn all men. Goddamn them. They all have shit for brains. I think about what I’m going to tell Megan and then remember that I am sworn to secrecy. I will never betray Jesse’s confidence even if I think he’s being a total idiot with shit for brains.”
Sarah Alderson, The Sound

Sarah Alderson
“because I got distracted Googling for information on the nanny murder (a good journalist always checks her facts, particularly when the primary source is Sophie, a girl who spouts gossip like she’s auditioning to become the next Perez Hilton). It turns out however that Sophie was correct on all points about the murder, which isn’t that comforting.”
Sarah Alderson, The Sound

Sarah Alderson
“And finally it is Thursday and the day of my guitar lesson. I jump out of bed as though it’s Christmas morning and I am six years old and a child of the Brangelina. I am in front of the mirror fixing my make up when Brodie waltzes in and plonks herself on my bed.

‘Why do you look pretty?’ she asks.”
Sarah Alderson, The Sound

Sarah Alderson
“The music cuts out and suddenly my breathing sounds really loud. It also seems to amplify his whole nakedness.
I stare at him. Actually I try not to stare at him but it’s kind of hard not to. I mean, he’s standing there topless in front of me and his stomach looks like it just walked out of an Abercrombie catalogue. Sweat has darkened the waistband of his jeans. He’s holding a spanner in one hand, the tyre in the other.”
Sarah Alderson, The Sound

Miakoda I would've done the same; sometimes you just can't help it :)

It's true. I couldn't help it. But at least I'm not alone. It would have been embarrassing giving it five stars if everyone else had given it only 1. But there are others out there who love Alex and Lila as much as me. That's a good feeling!


Nina (Niinjax) It would have been a little degrading towards yourself rating it any less, I think. :D I look forward to reading it some time.

So glad you enjoyed it! The sequel is out next August...there's lots more action, a lot more of Alex and you'll have to wait and find out what has happened to Jack!
Fated is a completely new book you're right but I hope you like it as much!

message 17: by Eleanor (new)

Eleanor I loved this book!I want Jack and Suki to end up getting together! :D It was amazing! I haven't put it down and I read it in a day!


message 18: by Sarah (new) - added it

Sarah Alderson Ahhh you'll have to wait and see what happens to Suki...and to Jack! I'm writing a short story for a charity fundraiser and it'll be through Suki's eyes (and Jack and Alex will be in it!)

Will keep you posted on that!


Billi It was one of the most amazing books I have ever read I stayed up from 1am to 6am to finish it. I absolutely love Alex I can't believe I have to wait a whole year for the sequel. One question will the next book be the the last of Lila, Alex and Jack? (:


message 20: by Sarah (new) - added it

Sarah Alderson Hi Billi! Thank you! I am actually writing a short story at the moment from Suki's POV which Alex will be in. And that should be out around November time on Amazon as an e-book. It's to raise money for a charity.

And Fated, a new book with new characters, is out in January.

Losing Lila, the sequel to Hunting Lila is out next August and somehow I don't think it will be the end of them. Excitingly I have just sold the film rights...so watch this space!


Sophie This is THE most amazing book i have ever read, i am hooked!

i can't wait for losing Lila and i really hope a film is made too!


message 22: by Sarah (new) - added it

Sarah Alderson Thank you Sophie! Happy dance!


Sophie Will the short story be available in a paperback to or will it just be an e-book?


message 24: by Sarah (new) - added it

Sarah Alderson Just as an e-book! But you should be able to download as a pdf too. I think. Err- will check!


message 25: by Jacqueline (new) - added it

Jacqueline Im dying to read your book but I was wondering when the US release will be? Or is there any other method of receiving it? <::

Jacqueline Hope you get the US deal soon! Can't wait to read it! <: thank you though!


Eleanor This is such a great book! I'm loving it so far! :) What is the name of the sequel? Is it the one that is featured at the end? Either way, I have to buy it!


message 29: by Sarah (new) - added it

Sarah Alderson Hi Eleanor!

No, the one at the end is another book (new series with new characters) altogether - Fated - it comes out January.

The sequel to Lila is called Losing Lila and that's out next August. I also have a short story coming out later on this year told from Suki's POV. That will be available from amazon as an e-book and all profits will go to a charity that supports girl change makers!

Thanks for liking the book!
