With over 500,000 views on YouTube, Stefanie Newell is the go-to writing coach for aspiring writers. Prior to YouTube, however, Stefanie was best known for her debut novel The Buzz: When Celebrity Gossip Goes Wrong.
The Buzz has been described as a humorous yet introspective look at the entertainment industry and its allure. The idea for The Buzz came while Newell was freelance writing for Unrated Magazine. After observing the entertainment industry and lurking on various message boards and blogs over the years, Stefanie put pen to paper and brought to life the gossiping, Internet diva Ebony Jenkins.
Newell’s company also published the self-help book Pull Your Pants Up and be a man! by author Bernice Harris. Actor Malik Yoba (Empire, Why Did I Get Married?, Girlfriends, New York Undercover) dispenses practical knowledge and wisdom in the riveting foreword. The self-help book geared towards young men between the ages of thirteen and eighteen provides a nine-step approach to a goal-oriented life.
Newell is currently working on her second novel Rules of the Game.

Sample of Press Coverage
“Breakout author Stefanie Newell serves up The Buzz on a hot platter for all who love gossip, Internet forums and spicy story lines. Newell’s novel is an interesting, thrilling, humorous experience that will have readers loving the story and hating the hell out of the main protagonist. The perfect anti-hero, Ebony’s a refreshing break from the normal sweet character. Her persona reeks of the all too familiar stank, hate filled online personalities seen on many well known gossip sites. This book is a definite must read for anyone who loves or hates the gossip circuit.” – J’Adore Magazine
