I'm the author of three novels and the mother of one small human. I write complex, suspenseful books about families with dark secrets and women trying to discover themselves in a world full of contradictory expectations. My stories are set in exciting and exotic locations such as French Riviera, New York City, and Buenos Aires which I hope will give readers an escapist thrill.
I love to hear from readers and aspiring authors. I have a background in book publishing as well as writing, and I share my advice and expertise in weekly videos which you can find on Instagram and here on Goodreads.

My best advice is to pick one social media outlet that you love and focus on building up a following there. Lots of folks try to do it all and then get really overwhelmed. So find a platform you have fun with and focus your efforts there! Hope that helps. (less)

And congrats on your novel. Losing the Light actually came out two years ago, and I'm preparing for the release of my second novel SHE REGRETS NOTHING in February. I did a variety of things to market my work: lots of social media activity, some in-person events, and traditional media outreach via my publisher and a publicist that I hired to help out. Every marketing campaign is different though because it depends on the publisher, the audience, the writer, their budget etc. For more advice on this, check out my consulting page on my website, there are a bunch of articles at the bottom of the page on the topic. https://www.andreadunlop.net/consulti...(less)

How to Write Your Novel Part 4: Meeting Goals

In my last video in this series, I’m talking about writing goals: how to make them and how to meet them. Setting goals is especially important in the period of your career where you’re not working with an agent or publisher and need to give yourself structure. Even after you are working with professionals—unless you are on a very tight book-a-year schedule—there will be long stretches where you ne

I finally got a minute to read this weekend and I gulped this down in about three sittings (I have a toddler, this is an accomplishment!). I was immediately drawn into this story of two women who have a deep and nostalgic love of one another as child ...more

“The happy ending is we all get another chance, another chapter.”
