American Princess has a cover! 
I love that Alice Roosevelt's verve comes through--I can just imagine her at a White House dinner party getting ready to light up a Lucky Strikes cigarette or pulling her pet snake, Emily Spinach, out of her purse. 
Of course, pre-orders are always welcome and most appreciated! 
From the cover:
Alice may be the president's daughter, but she's nobody's darling. As bold as her signature color Alice Blue, the gum-chewing, cigarette-smoking, poker-playing First Daughter discovers that the only way for a woman to stand out in Washington is to make waves--oceans of them. With the canny sophistication of the savviest politician on the Hill, Alice uses her celebrity to her advantage, testing the limits of her power and the seductive thrill of political entanglements.
But Washington, DC is rife with heartaches and betrayals, and when Alice falls hard for a smooth-talking congressman it will take everything this rebel has to emerge triumphant and claim her place as an American icon. As Alice soldiers through the devastation of two world wars and brazens out a cutting feud with her famous Roosevelt cousins, it's no wonder everyone in the capital refers to her as the Other Washington Monument--and Alice intends to outlast them all.

Big News: Thornton's "Princess" Settles in at Berkley!


Here's the huge announcement from Publisher's Weekly that I've been dying to spill for the last month!

"American Princess, about Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice, was preempted, in a world rights acquisition, by Kate Seaver at Berkley. The author, Stephanie Thornton, who was represented by Kevan Lyon at the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, sold two books in the deal. American Princess, Berkley said, tells a 'sweeping tale' of a first daughter 'whose wild antics in the White House made her America’s first media sensation.' The book, which will be published as a paperback original in early 2019, delves into how this politically connected woman went on to become a power broker 'as the wife of a debonair congressman and the mistress to a powerful senator.'"

I'm so excited that Alice Roosevelt's story found a wonderful home at Berkley, and that soon you'll all be able to read about her wild and crazy antics! 2019 is going to be a great year!
