Magnificent Trending Monday

Hi Everyone!

I was just wondering what things are trending where you live. And your answers can be a trend in your area or just a trend in your life!


What is your favorite social media outlet?

Any new food trends?

Any cool Youtube videos trending where you are?

What kind of fashion is trending where you live or in your life?

What song or band is everyone talking about or you are just really enjoying?


And the title of Embassy Row will be…

Hi everyone,

I was planning on blogging this week with pictures from my Alaska trip, but I guess those will have to wait because  the time has come!

I can finally announce that the official title of Embassy Row 1 will be . . .

Hi All!

As you know Ally is on vacation in Alaska! You can follow her pictures on Instagram and Twitter.

And while I wait for her to get back to Ally Carter HQ I thought I would give away a little something.

Like last week I am going to giveaway something from another author!

Up for grabs is a pamphlet with a FREE e-bo0k download of The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas and it’s signed!!!!

Just post in the comments if you read more ebooks or old school paper books!

Good Luck!


Hi everyone!

Ally here with what is (for me) exciting news: I’m leaving today for Alaska!

Now, this isn’t work travel. This is family vacation travel (a concept that is fairly foreign to me, to be honest).

You see, it is almost my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary (!!!) and my entire family is going on an Alaskan cruise to celebrate. I’m super excited about it.

Don’t worry, I will be working on Embassy Row 2 while I’m gone. Except, instead of working in a booth at Panera I’ll be working in a deck chair as we pass by glaciers and whales and stuff.

Hi Everyone!

I hope all of you that got to go to RWA Literacy Autographing had a great time!

And for those of you who didn’t get a chance to go we are going to mix it up a bit here on the blog and give away another author’s book!

So here is your chance to winThe Camelot Code by Mari Mancusi!


Just post in the comments if you have ever been to a book signing and who it was with, or if not, who you would like to meet in person to autograph one of your books!

San Antonio, baby!

Hi everybody!

I should be packing.

No. Seriously. I leave tomorrow, and I have no idea what I should wear or take. And shoes! The shoe question is always a BIG one!

Where am I going?

Well, regular blog readers will hopefully remember that I am attending the Romance Writers of America Annual Convention in San Antonio.

If you live in the San Antonio area, please try to come by for the first night of the conference!

The Literary Autographing is free and open to the public. It takes place Wednesday, July 23 at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel. Click here for complete information.

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to take today’s post to remind every one of all the ways you can interact with Ally!

See her in person at RWA Literacy Autographing this Wednesday, July 23, in San Antonio, TX!!!

Ally truly does her best to stay in touch with readers. You can keep up with her on all of these sites, her official Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter pages.

Hi All!

So I got to read book one of Embassy Row this weekend!!!!

This is the BEST and WORST part of my job. I get to read Ally’s stuff in advance but then I don’t have anyone to talk to about it with!

I can’t wait for all of you to get to read it because I know you are going to LOVE it. Also, I know we are going to have some super fun stuff leading up  to its release!

I will have to stay in my house and not to talk to anyone because I am bursting with Embassy Row information.

Letter to Baby Author Me…revisited

Hi everyone!

Doing a retro-throwback post today!

Because, you see, in a few weeks I’m going to be giving a speech at the Day of YA Pre-Conference at the Romance Writers of America Convention in San Antonio.

(And, don’t forget, I’ll also be signing in San Antonio on July 23. If you live in the area, please come by!)

So that has got me to thinking about this post that I wrote a couple of years ago. It was true then. It’s true now.

And I hope you like it!
