About Awkward Author
My name is Alissa Grosso, and back in 2011 my first novel Popular was published by Flux a small YA publishing imprint. Since then, I’ve gone on to publish six more books, and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon. Over the years, I’ve picked up a few tricks of the trade, and I decided to compile some of what I’ve learned as well as chronicle my ongoing adventures writing and publishing books here at Awkward Author.
Awkward Author began life as YouTube channel, which you can still access here. It was also for a time a podcast as well. In April of 2020 I decided to put the podcast on hold indefinitely, and while I wasn’t ready to relaunch the podcast, I missed sharing my author insights and misadventures with my fellow writers, and so this Awkward Author website was born.
