  7. My novel Silent was selected as the 2014 Rainbow Award Winner in the Gay & Lesbian Young Adult Category! I don't think I ever posted much about it here-- ran a couple of ads at one point, but I sort of suck at advertising and self-promotion. In any case, on the off chance a curious person stumbles by my blog, here's the cover/blurb: 2014 Rainbow Award Winner: Best Gay & Lesbian Young Adult Novel Alex's life as a teenager in South Central LA is far from perfect, but it's his life, and he knows how to live it. He knows what role to play and what things to keep to himself. He's got it all under control, until one lousy pair of shoes kicks him out of his world and lands him in a foster care group home. Surrounded by strangers and trapped in a life where he could never belong, Alex turns to the only person lower on the social ladder than he is: a "special" mute boy. In Sebastian, Alex finds a safe place to store his secrets--those that sent him to foster care, and the deeper one that sets him apart from the other teenagers he knows. But Sebastian has secrets of his own, and when tragedy rips the two boys apart, Alex will stop at nothing to find the answers--even if it means dragging them both through a past full of wounds best left buried. It might just be worth it, for the slim chance at love. *** I'm running a giveaway on my blog to celebrate. Enter to win a paperback (+other goodies) or an ebook of Silent. Ends today. http://saraalva.com/?p=1052

    Great authentic and fresh voice. I was very happy to stumble upon this story today, and hope to read more in the future.
  10. After many false starts, I can finally say that the Social Skills audiobook is now available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. My first audiobook! \o/ Awesome Cover Art by Dani Alexander A few samples: Opening credits Retail sample from Chapter 1 My narrator (Andrew Eiden) did an amazing job, and really went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with every line of his reading. He’s an actor and an experienced narrator, and luckily for me he took an interest in my title. I hope the audiobook listeners enjoy his narration as much as I did! (especially the Connor/Jared scenes…those were so good IMO. ) Andrew Eiden So, yeah, that's what I spent my summer doing--listening to/helping edit the audiobook. Apologies for not writing any new stuff... I've come to terms with the fact that I'm never going to be prolific (at least at this stage of my life). I'm an author but I'm also a full time teacher and a dancer and a violinist and sometimes I'm even a wife. But I love to come back here and poke around whenever I get a spare moment.
  11. Social Skills is now available as an audiobook. I think my narrator (actor Andrew Eiden) did a really amazing job. Now on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. My first audiobook! \o/ I'll also be doing a paperback/tote bag/gift giveaway on my blog (www.SaraAlva.com) shortly if anyone's interested.
