frequently asked questions


Where can I find {book title} in paperback?

Many of my books were published by a digital-only imprint of Penguin Random House and are not available in paperback. All books available in print are listed here.

How can I get an ARC (review copy) of one of your books?

I do not distribute ARCs. Readers should contact my publisher if they’d like to receive an ARC.

Why are your books priced differently?

Book prices are determined entirely by my publisher. I have multiple publishers, each with a different pricing strategy. I am not included in pricing discussions.

Will Marc and Elena from new York’s Finest be getting their own story?

Sorry, no. New York’s Finest was sold as a three-book series with the option for that publish to expand to a fourth and fifth book with the remaining siblings. They did not chose that option. While I could technically release them on my own, so much time has passed, I’m not convinced I can do those stories justice.

I’m not in the US. How do I know which of your books are available in my country / language?

To determine if a certain book is translated to your language, please check your local retailers. I wish I could be of more help, but authors are rarely notified or provided titles/links of our international books.

Do you have any advice or tips for aspiring writers?

Yes, lots! Be sure to check out Lauren’s blog.

Why can’t I find Hot Asset, Hard Sell, or Huge Deal on Apple Books or Nook?

The 21 Wall Street is published by Montlake, an imprint of Amazon Publishing. As such, the e-book format is exclusive to Kindle.

I have a great book idea—can I send it to you to write?

Noooooo! Please don’t. Not only do I have more than enough of my own ideas to contend with, but I firmly believe the best person to write a particular story idea is the one who came up with it!

Where / how can I get a signed book?

All of my book signings are listed here. I’m also working on figuring out how to make signed books available online, but I’m not quite there yet!

Why can’t I find you on Facebook or Twitter?

I left Facebook in May 2018 because it didn’t contribute to my values and goals. I’ve been happier, healthier, and more productive since getting off Facebook, and have no plans to return. My newsletter is the best way to get my updates.
