Welcome to My World!

Welcome and thank you so much for visiting my web site! I don’t post as often as I’d like to, but I’m trying to be better about it. And I have some fun ideas for some upcoming posts, so I hope you’ll *follow* this page so you’ll know just when the fun gets posted! I would also be super honored if you subscribed to my newsletter. I only send it out once a month (or so) and include things there that I don’t here (i.e. contests, announcements!).

There are some tabs at the top to help you find what you’re looking for. Some fun info about me in my bio and even sneak peeks at some of my books. If you haven’t already read them, it’s a great way to get a little taste!

Feel free to contact me at questions@annalisagrant.com if there’s something you’d like to know but can’t find it here. You can also message me on my Facebook page ( Facebook.com/AuthorAnnalisaGrant ).

Thanks, again, for stopping by!


Big Announcement (aka I’m the Luckiest Girl in the World!)

The past six months of my career have been life changing. I know it has seemed a bit radio silence to you, my amazing readers, but trust me, there are things happening that I have only dreamed about. Many things are still in development so I can’t divulge those details yet, but we are far enough along in one project that I can now fill you in on it!

I am excited and honored to tell you that I am working with Nick Fullen-Collins (currently with Sony Pictures Entertainment, and President of Artistic Vision Entertainment), and Randy Holcomb Sr., former Chicago P.D. detective, to write “Checkmate.” Based on a true story, “Checkmate” chronicles the rise and fall of one of the most intriguing drug lords to ever run the streets of Chicago. Once the book is complete, Artistic Vision Entertainment will begin on the film.

Working with Nick is a huge privilege! He has worked with Queen Latifah and Flavor Unit Entertainment, Will Smith and Overbrook Entertainment, VH1, Mike Epps, Mary J. Blige, and Dwayne Wade. Nick also worked on The Queen Latifah Show as well as on her film, The Bessie Smith Story, which was co-produced with HBO. You can learn more about him here: http://www.ghliterary.com/nick-fullen-collins/

Writing a piece based on a true story is a different experience for me. At first, when my agent approached me with this project, it seemed a little daunting. But every time Randy and I talk, the story becomes just as deep a part of me as my fictional work. With each new detail, I am honored to be entrusted to tell this beautiful and complicated story.

It’s important for me to let you know that, while “Checkmate” is absolutely in my wheelhouse of romantic/mystery/suspense, it is NOT in my usual YA genre. Due to the subject matter of the story, the book will be written for my adult audience.

Thank you all for being so patient! So many of you have asked what I’m working on, and I’ve had to be a bit evasive with you. I promise there will be more announcements coming soon. As soon as the details of those projects currently in development become more solidified, you will be the first to know!

Mail Call!

Did you know that I have a PO Box? I do! Right now, however, it’s a sad and lonely little box in need of some love. If you send me a card or note with your return address, I’ll send you a bookmark, postcard, or anything else I can find around my office!

I can’t wait to hear from you!

PO Box 1354
