Dear Colleague,

I am a New York hybrid award-winning writer saying hi.  Having launched a new book, BRAND NEW AMERICANS: Stories (Literary, 114 p), I wanted to reach out to you and tell you that you can check it out and even grab a free kindle copy from now until November 25th.

http://www.amazon.com/Brand-New-Americans-Alexandra-Ares-ebook/dp/B0186FO0V0/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1448305784&sr=8-1&keywords=brand+new+americansBrandNewAmericans.jpg 

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Twenty-five-year old Max Smirnov arrives to New York City after a blackout caused by a traumatic event and becomes a brand new man. A couple of years later his life teeters between vagabond and entrepreneur and he finds an uninteresting yet temporary friend. 

Navigating between the layers of past they left behind and the uncertain new world, the uprooted European characters in Alexandra Ares’s elegant, touching story "The Other Boy" and award-winning novella "The Other Girl" seek love and a better future, beyond the barriers of tradition and humdrum life. 

“Ares’s words are beautiful and poignant, she is talented without showing off and The Other Girl reads like a subtle poem…A gorgeous, delicate, full body work and it is wonderful.” 
San Francisco Review of Books 

"Ares is a budding author who has a knack for highlighting the neurotic, maladaptive and vulnerable people in New York's vast cavern of possible characters” –Readers Favorite, Starred 

“While this is not a traditional story in terms of plot, Ares captivates the reader by creating two people who are realistically flawed and vulnerable in a way that not only provokes sympathy but connects with the reader on a fundamental level.” –US Review of Books 

“Classical tome, in a modern narrative,”–Sergiu Pobereznic, author, painter, composer

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Alexandra Ares's novels won four awards and finalist titles in the US. She is a New York writer, novelist, columnist, theater critic, screenwriter, playwright, and a former publisher of Manhattan Chronicles, a quarterly literary magazine for the unique, eclectic and different. She was born in Bucharest, Romania, now part of the European Union, daughter of an eccentric playwright and a French teacher. She spent her childhood under communism, absorbing classic literature, in a spare, non-materialistic environment. Alexandra earned her B.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Theater and Cinema in Bucharest, the most prestigious one in Romania. Even before graduation she worked as a theater critic, producer, and documentary maker for the Romanian National Television traveling extensively throughout Europe. She has lived in New York City since 1998.
