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)

Monday Morning Publicist: American Dirt

For the last few years, the majority of the conversation around diversity and inclusion in book publishing has happened in the Children’s Lit and YA world, where the debate over hiring sensitivity readers has grown especially heated. Obviously, authors of books meant from a young, impressionable audience should be especially mindful about both inclusion and harmful tropes and characterizations.

Andrea Dunlop, We Came Here to Forget

“A part of her could imagine being happy in her solitude. She could work and read and travel alone. It could be a lovely life, in a way.”
