Neely Tubati Alexander

Ready for a reprieve? Join Brooke and Grant and this week’s guest, Neely Tubati-Alexander, for a conversation about whether romance and rom-com writers are having more fun. We dive into questions of the success of the genre, what publishers are looking for, and how a writer gets into romance writing in the first place. A light-hearted episode in celebration of escapism and reading as brain candy and Tubati-Alexander’s latest release, In a Not So Perfect World.


Neely Tubati-Alexander is originally from the Seattle area and resides in Arizona with her husband and children. Her debut novel, Love Buzz, won the Zibby Award for Best Beach Read and was hailed by Good Morning America as “the perfect escapist read . . . absolutely delightful,” and Booklist declared her “an exciting new romance writer.” Her new novel is In a Not So Perfect World.
