What People Are Saying…

“From Finland with Love swept me away. I was on board and fully engaged from the very first scene to its satisfying ending. Ellie Alanko writes with humor and grace, deftly weaving moments of poignancy and longing with madcap antics and sparkling dialogue. Alina is an unforgettable character and the supporting cast of characters is rich, varied and utterly original. I highly recommend this book.”

Final book cover: From Finland with Love


It seems I’m in the minority: I don’t need to hold a ‘physical book’ to enjoy a read. Many still do, and so I’ve decided to have my book published in paperback.

I want to be a paperback writer…no seller.

Although I’m passing up the opportunity to go with agents, I still question my choice.

My editors have unanimously advised I go the agent route. I’ve got one interested, another I “know,” and thousands I have not queried.

I’m taking this route to attract a publisher, but it will take time & publicity. Am I being daft?

I really want this in physical form (not just e-book): I want to be a paperback seller….
