Launch day: The Door on the Right

Just in time to buy it for the dystopian sci-fi lover on your list, the latest thriller

By Elyse Salpeter

The author of the bestselling Kelsey Porter series, Elyse Salpeter has launched her latest novel, The Door on the Right.

“November 1, 2022 was the day that I started writing The Door on the RIght—the first day of Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) this year,” she remembers. Nanowrimo is a national writing effort where writers write every day to have a full, 50,000-word novel by the end of the month. That’s approximately 1,600 words a day, every day. “The problem was that I had no idea what I was going to write up until the very night before when I had a dream.

“In this dream was the actress Hayden Panettiere, but at the age when she appeared in the movie, Bring it On – All or Nothing. She was in a building with other kids and while she was not chained up and could move about, she could never leave. That was all I remembered of the dream when I woke.

“And that’s how The Door on the Right started. I sat down the next day at my laptop and developed a story around a girl, named Hayden, who must spend her entire life living in one building because she doesn’t have the immunity to fight against a virus that devasted the planet one hundred years before.”

The Door on the Right launched today. You can get the e-book now at:
