Alive will not have a sequel. It was a goal of mine to make this story as self-contained as possible and for readers to be satisfied by the ending. I hope that's the case! I do have more books coming out, though. You can check out the High School Horror series, which starts up in January and then I also have another as yet unannounced standalone coming out as well.

Leslie,

Thank you so much for reading and leaving your thoughts; it means so much to me. I assume you're talking about setting a goal of how many words a day you're going to write? Let me know if I'm missing the mark! The answer is: it depends! On how you like to write, on where you are in the process, etc. If I'm not on a very tight deadline, I like to set time goals for myself. Time where I can't look at the internet or doing anything but write. At the beginning of a project, I'm very gentle with myself. I either only set a goal of 15-30 minutes or 250 words. But when I'm really going or close to deadline, I try for 2k words right now because I have no choice! (less)

More of Chandler's books…
“We never understood the tendency to underestimate us, we who had been baptized and delivered through pain, who grinned and bore agonies while managing to draw on wing-tipped eyeliner with a surgically steady hand. We plucked our eyebrows, waxed our upper lips, got razor burn on our crotches, held blades to the cups of our armpits. Shoes tore holes in the skin of our heels and crippled the balls of our feet. We endured labor and childbirth and C-sections, during which doctors literally set our intestines on a table next to our bodies while we were awake. We got acid facials. We punctured our foreheads with Botox and filled our lips and our breasts. We pierced our ears and wore pants that were too tight. We got too much sun. We punished our bodies in spin class. All these tiny sacrifices to make us appear more lithe and ladylike—the female of the species. The weaker sex. Secretly, they toughened our hides, sharpened our edges. We were tougher than we looked. The only difference was that now we were finally letting on.”
Chandler Baker, Whisper Network

“We had guilt of every flavor: We had working-mom guilt, childless guilt, guilt because we’d turned down a social obligation, guilt because we’d accepted an invitation we knew we didn’t have time for, guilt for turning away work and for not turning it down when we felt we were already being taken advantage of. We had guilt for asking for more and for not asking for enough, guilt for working from home, guilt for eating a bagel, Catholic guilt and Presbyterian guilt and Jewish guilt, none of which tasted quite the same. We felt guilty if we weren’t feeling guilty enough, so much so that we began to take pride in this ability to function under moral conflict.”
Chandler Baker, Whisper Network

“We knew we shouldn’t be ashamed. We weren’t ashamed. We were grown-ass women—which is obviously why we paraded to the restrooms with tampons secretly stuffed into our cardigan sleeves as though we were spies delivering encrypted information.
....We pretended that all of this was a myth. That we had neither fallopian tubes, nor menstrual cycles, nor breasts, nor moods, nor children. And then we took it as a compliment when one of the men in the office told us we had balls. So, tell us again how this wasn’t a man’s world.”
Chandler Baker, Whisper Network
