Erotic Thriller

The Girl in 6E by Bestselling Author Alessandra Torre

For Immediate Release: November 14, 2013—New York, NY–Alessandra Torre recently received the phone call every first-year novelist hopes for when her literary agent Maura Kye-Casella of Don Congdon Associates, Inc. confirmed Torre’s erotic thriller The Girl in 6E went to auction in the six figures, finally closing with German publisher Blanvalet.  The Girl in 6E, pitched as a webcam girl who would scare Dexter, is the tale of a recluse who must fight her urge to kill in order to save one little girl.

“Blanvalet is a great house, so we were thrilled with their offer,” said Kye-Casella. “I couldn’t be happier that 6E will be in the hands of such a wonderful German publisher. This deal wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and enthusiasm of my agent and the team at Redhook,” said Torre.

The Girl in 6E  is slated for a 2014 release by Blanvalet; on U.S. soil, the book will have a July 2014 hardcover release by Redhook (Hachette Book Group). The novel also has attracted film interest.
