Description


Thirty-six of the most interesting writers in the Pacific Northwest came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage. The result? Hotel Angeline, a truly inventive novel that surprises at every turn of the page.
Something is amiss at the Hotel Angeline, a rickety former mortuary perched atop Capitol Hill in rain-soaked Seattle. Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in her landlady mother's absence. The quirky tenants--a hilarious mix of misfits and rabble-rousers from days gone by--rely on Alexis all the more when they discover a plot to sell the Hotel. Can Alexis save their home? Find her real father? Deal with her surrogate dad's dicey past? Find true love? Perhaps only their feisty pet crow, Habib, truly knows. Provoking interesting questions about the creative process, this novel is by turns funny, scary, witty, suspenseful, beautiful, thrilling, and unexpected.

Praise For…


“Working on crafting the story into Hotel Angeline has been a pleasure. There’s something about this project that glows when you hold it in your hands, and I hope the readers feel that glow, too.” —Garth Stein “This may well be the craziest—but best—thing I've ever been part of. The camaraderie of the authors, the excitement of the audience (live and online), even the long hours it took to bring it all together, were joyous and moving. Words flowing from an author’s mind through fingers to keyboard to projection screen? Absolutely incredible.” —Jennie Shortridge “Hotel Angeline is a unique writing project, and it’s a testament to what a group of focused, talented, and determined writers can produce when inspired to do something good for the world.” —Susan Wiggs “Working on Hotel Angeline was hands down the best two-hour, multi-authored, improvised, live-broadcast, literary advocacy writing experience I had all of last year! I loved it!” —Sean Beaudoin
