Summer Season Silhouette

Posted by on May 3, 2012 in Book News | 0 comments


So…a lot went down since I posted last Friday. Basically I realized that no amount of yoga is going to help me make my June 1 book release at Book Soup. At first this realization bummed me out, but then a huge amount of stress lifted. I want to give you all the best book possible. I don’t want to rush and then regret not giving myself a few more weeks.  And I want to enjoy my book release, not worry whether the books are going to arrive in time. My assistant is working on setting up a new date, while me and my editor continue through the publishing grind; stay tuned.

In other news, my amazing designer just sent me this almost final of the Sex, Life, & Hannah Summer Season silhouette based on our silhouette contest winner. What do you think?

Hannah Bares All In The Summer Season

Posted by on Apr 19, 2012 in Book News | 0 comments


LOS ANGELES, CA, APRIL 19, 2012 – Sex, Life, and Hannah, the juicy woman-on-top book series authored by Dorota Skrzypek, will unveil its third installment at Book Soup in Los Angeles on June 1st. The Summer Season picks up where its predecessors left off, chronicling the exploits of Hannah, a female professional trying desperately to make sense of the L.A. single life. Through broken hearts, broken dreams, and nearly-broken bed frames (yes—there is a lot of sex), Hannah grapples with the modern late-twenty-something’s conundrum: Does the fairytale life exist, and is it worth having?

It seems that Skrzypek’s heroine is not alone in this debate. Cable television is crawling with ladies trapped under this same conundrum—curiously enough also named Hannah. HBO’s new series, Girls, follows newly-graduated protagonist Hannah Horvath as she struggles to support herself in chasing her professional dreams, while learning about love and sex in a cold, technologically-distracted world. Showtime’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl dealt with Hannah Baxter, a college graduate concealing her career choice as a call girl, in a world that advocates more traditional life decisions.

While it may seem like an uncanny coincidence that these women all share a name, it’s not as uncanny that they are all having the same deliberations. Is modern media telling us that the average professional woman is mind-warped over society’s expectations of her?

Sex, Life, and Hannah addresses this question poignantly and humorously, in all forms. An article recently posted to its website blog, entitled “Do Not Be This Girl”, critiques the woman’s typical marriage path with biting candor—and garnered over 12,000 hits as soon as it hit the Internet. Proving that non-traditional courtship can be quite the adventure, the site’s most viewed book excerpt, “Sex in an Airplane Bathroom”, spares no dirty detail of Mile-High-Club induction gone terribly wrong. Sex, Life, and Hannah is acclaimed by audiences as jaw-dropping, frank, and relatable. Writer’s Digest hails it as “an honest, sensitive, and intelligent investigation of the human heart… [with] wit, charm, pathos, and passion.”


Dorota Skrzypek was born in Poland, grew-up in Canada, and moved to Southern California in 1997. After many years of flying airplanes, designing airports, exploring the world, and dating a swarm of eligible bachelors, she created the adventures of hannah to focus on writing fiction. Dorota resides in Los Angeles with her husband, writer and producer, Scott Frazelle. The adventures of hannah is a boutique publishing and production company dedicated to re-imagining content and engaging the public in new ways. Whatever the medium, story-telling is the passion.

Book Cover Contest Update

photo: all the lovely SLH Book Cover Contest prizes

Hello cookies. I hope you don’t mind the influx of SLH promo stuff lately, but this is pressure and production time in the world of Sex, Life, & Hannah. This is the time when I need to shine and make things happen so that I can bring you the next installment of one of the most entertaining book series you’ll ever read:)

The Book Cover Contest is on it’s way, but it’s been a little slow to start so me and my marketing assistant have decided to do two things:

1) Even though we’ve already got some cool pics on the SLH FB wall, we’re extending the contest until March30th to make it a bit more exciting and competitive.

2) Because I’ve gotten some emails from ladies that want to submit, but are a little shy about posting, you can now email me your pic to: and I will post the pic for you anonymously.

Good luck everyone! And thanks so much for participating.

xoxoxoxo, D:)

p.s. the new book is really coming along. I just finished the next draft of the manuscript and the feedback I’m getting from my editors is that we’re really close to final, so hang tight, this book will be out for your reading pleasure very soon.
