Just wanted to make sure you all received the latest Newsletter from Ally that was sent out earlier this week! If not, here you go….
I hope you’re all having a great fall! Are you back in school? Is life treating you well?
Life here is about to get crazy–but in a good way! I’m starting a whole new book (top secret!), and we’re gearing up for the publication of TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP in December.
I’ll also be hitting the road (Wichita! Austin! Houston! NYC!) and starting a new way to keep in touch with readers!
But first, I need to say…
Congratulations, Lura McCraw!
Ally Ambassadors will remember when we ran a contest last year. The grand prize winner was to have his/her name in the final book of the Embassy Row series!
Well, the winner was Lura McCraw, and I’m very excited for everyone to “meet” Lura in TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP (out December 27th).
Congratulations, Lura! And a great big thank you to all of the Ambassadors who have helped to spread the word about Embassy Row, Grace, and all the crazy stuff going on in Adria.
But speaking of Ally Ambassadors…
Want sneak peeks and cool prizes?
Join the Ally Ambassadors today!
As we gear up for the publication of the third (and final) Embassy Row book, it’s time for us to call on all current and potential Ally Ambassadors to help us spread the word that TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP is coming!
Everyone can read the first chapter of TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP right HERE, but Ally Ambassadors will receive access to the first two chapters of TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP on September 30th!
Do you want a chance to win really cool prizes?
Do you want to take part in fun challenges?
Then sign up to be an Ally Ambassador RIGHT HERE.
If you were an Ambassador last year, and if your email hasn’t changed, then you shouldn’t have to sign up again! Just keep an eye out for the emails which will be starting soon!

Introducing ALLY CHAT, a shorter, more conversational newsletter that will come out more frequently (probably 1-2 times per month). These emails will be more similar to an old-school blog post, with updates on how the writing is going, fun facts and thoughts and just general musings.
The Ally Chat emails will be IN ADDITION TO the regular “Big Event” newsletter.
If you’d like to receive ALLY CHAT instead or in addition to the “Big Event” newsletter, just update your user preferences Here.
You can absolutely receive both newsletters. And if “Ally Chat” isn’t your thing you can unsubscribe from it at any time and just receive the “Big Event” newsletter.
It’s totally up to you!
