Book Description

From Alina Adams, "New York Times" best-selling author of "Oakdale Confidential," "Jonathan's Story," "When a Man Loves a Woman," "Annie's Wild Ride" and the Figure Skating Mystery series, comes "Counterpoint: An Interactive Family Saga," where readers are invited to help write the story!

When Victoria Morgan agreed to come work for the mysterious Cooper family, she never expected their long-hidden secrets to bleed over into her own - or to fall in love with Douglas Cooper's playboy son, Robin.

A development Robin's wife, Nicole, has no intention of accepting gracefully - even if it means destroying the only person who ever gave a damn about her... and everyone he cares about, as well.

2010 SCRIBE Award Winner Adams (for "The Man From Oakdale") begins her tale of passion, intrigue, and deceit with Volume #1 of "Counterpoint," then turns it over to her readers to guide where they want to see the tale go next.

A new volume of "Counterpoint" will be released monthly, written by Adams... and you.


In addition to four romance novels ("The Fictitious Marquis", "Thieves at Heart," "Annie's Wild Ride," "When a Man Loves a Woman"), five figure skating mysteries ("Murder on Ice," "On Thin Ice," "Axel of Evil," "Death Drop," "Skate Crime") and three books of non-fiction, Alina Adams scripted "Pure Soap" for E! Entertainment, "Loving/The City" transitions for ABC Daytime, and worked as a researcher for the Daytime Emmy Awards from 1996 to 2006. At TeleNext Media, she wrote the "As The World Turns"' tie-ins, "Oakdale Confidential" and "The Man From Oakdale," and co-wrote the "Guiding Light" tie-in, "Jonathan's Story." As Creative Content Producer, she pioneered the first ever on-line continuation of a soap opera with, and followed up with the GL sequel, Mindy's Twitter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashioned soapy drama May 15, 2012
By Uncle B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book harkens back to the good old days of high end glamor and drama, the kind of books that Jackie Collins and Judith Krantz did at the height of big hair and big shoulder pads. Interestingly though, the book is also a groundbreaker in that it's the first of a series set up for readers to give opinion and feedback to the author to help shape what happens next in the series, the first interactive book series, at least that I'm aware of.
The author also writes Another World Today an online print continuation of the much missed NBC soap Another World, with two chapters released every week where readers vote at the end of each chapter on how they want the story to continue, which served as the inspiration for this series.
I recommend this to anyone who enjoys soaps, drama and romance.

More About the Author

I get bored easily.

I started out writing romance ("The Fictitious Marquis," "Thieves at Heart," "Annie's Wild Ride," "When a Man Loves a Woman"), briefly dabbled in non-fiction ("Inside Figure Skating," "Sarah Hughes: Skating to the Stars), moved on to mysteries ("Murder on Ice," "On Thin Ice," "Axel of Evil," "Death Drop," "Skate Crime") and tried my hand at soap-opera tie-ins ("Oakdale Confidential," "Jonathan's Story," "The Man From Oakdale").

Now, what's really firing up my imagination is enhanced e-books; e-books with videos as part of the story.

My first effort is "Skate Crime: Multimedia." I took an excerpt from my final Figure Skating Mystery, and added professional videos by The Ice Theatre of New York. It's part mystery, part romance, part book, part movie, and all Storytelling for the 21st Century.

I have no idea what I'm doing exactly. It's not like I have a blueprint to follow, or even anyone who's created something like it before to emulate. But, I can confidently say... I'm not bored. (Yet.)
