RT Book Reviews featured me for their Debut Author Spotlight, where I talked about getting “The Call” and attending the Fame school. Read it here.

USA Today’s HEA blog included me in an interview with Priscilla Oliveras, Mia Sosa, and Sabrina Sol, three awesome Latina romance authors. We talked about the influence Latinx culture has had on us as writers, cultural stereotypes we hope to dispel in our writing, and made some book recommendations. Read it here.

I also answered questions about my writing process and publishing journey for 17 Scribes, the website for authors debuting in 2017. Read it here.

Let me know what you think, and if you have any questions you’d like me to answer here! Or better yet, send me a tweet. 😉

Take the Lead is here!

This is a big day for me—the debut of my first book! If you’ve been watching this space, you’ll know this has been something I’ve been working toward for a while. I recently wrote about my evolution as a writer over on the RWchat blog, and I talked about my publishing journey over at the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood. Still, it’s weird to think that a year ago, I had three chapters of a story I was excited about, and now, finally, Take the Lead is out in the world! More info below!

TAKE THE LEAD, the debut contemporary romance from 2017 Golden Heart finalist Alexis Daria, is out now! The first in a sizzling new series about finding love on and off the dance floor.

 

Gina Morales wants to win. It’s her fifth season on The Dance Off, a top-rated network TV celebrity dance competition, and she’s never even made it to the finals. When she meets her latest partner, she sees her chance. He’s handsome, rippling with muscles, and he stars on the popular Alaskan wilderness reality show Living Wild. With his sexy physique and name recognition, she thinks he’s her ticket to the finals—until she realizes they’re being set up.

 

Stone Nielson hates Los Angeles, he hates reality TV, and he hates that fact that he had to join the cast of the The Dance Off because of family obligations. He can’t wait to get back to Alaska, but he also can’t deny his growing attraction to his bubbly Puerto Rican dance partner. Neither of them are looking for romantic entanglements, and Stone can’t risk revealing his secrets, but as they heat up the dance floor, it’s only a matter of time until he feels an overwhelming urge to take the lead.

 

When the tabloids catch on to their developing romance, the spotlight threatens to ruin not just their relationship, but their careers and their shot at the trophy. Gina and Stone will have to decide if their priorities lie with fame, fortune, or the chance at a future together.

Countdown to Take the Lead

The summer of deadlines rolls into the autumn of promo…

My debut contemporary romance, Take the Lead (Dance Off #1), comes out next week, and things have been super busy. I’m working on supplemental material for my newsletter subscribers (hint hint), but in the meantime, you can check out the Pinterest board and Spotify playlist for the book.
