Alison Sweeney has revealed some of the details about her upcoming novel. On her official blog, the actress/writer posted, "Well, one big piece of news is that there will actually be two novels! Hyperion is set to publish two of my books. The first will come out in May of 2013. It’s a fun and romantic story about a (fictional!) Hollywood publicist named Sophie Atwater who finds herself caught in a love triangle. If you like Sophie Kinsella and Emily Giffin, this will be right up your alley. I loved writing it, and I can’t wait for you to read it! My second novel will come out in May of 2014, and it will be another dishy beach read with a relatable heroine."
In the novel, successful LA PR agent Sophie has a happy life with a lovely boyfriend and a job she loves but puts them all of the line when she winds up making out with her newest client, Billy Fox.
"Alison Sweeney's novel is an entertaining, backstage glimpse at those who organize the lives of the Hollywood elite. It's great fun for any reader who secretly sneaks peeks at People magazine in the checkout line at the grocery store, and wonders, What if . . . ?" says bestselling author Jodi Picoult.

The insanely hyper-productive Alison Sweeney (Sami) has launched yet another project. In addition to acting and directing for "DOOL" as well as hosting The Biggest Loser, she is also doing some writing.
The actress revealed that she is currently writing a novel to be released next year. She blogged, "I've dreamed about writing my own novel. Well, I'm finally doing it! Actually, I'm almost done. I can't say much about it yet, but I can tell you that it should be out next year...and that it will be a fun read."
Sweeeney is no stranger to the publishing world, of course. She has previously released "The Mommy Diet" and her autobiography, "All The Days Of My Life (So Far)." This will be her first stab at a novel.
