Her new book, Searching for Sassy: An L.A. Phone Psychic's Tales of Life, Lust & Love, won Hay House's Book-to-Screen Pitchfest in New York, which garnered interest from Hollywood and resulted in a deal with the producers of USA Network's PSYCH, to develop the book for television. 

Praise for Searching for Sassy:

"If someone just came up with the idea of a wildly entertaining story about relationships with a dollop of psychic overlay and turned that idea into a tightly woven novel, that would be reason enough to pick up the book and read. The fact that SEARCHING FOR SASSY: An L.A. Phone Psychic's Tales of Life, Lust & Love is based on the real experiences of the writer Alyson Mead, giving the story a sense of credibility in addition to creativity should push this book onto the best sellers list."

"Alyson Mead's remarkable new book, jammed-pack full of whacky, wonderful self-disclosures, will leave you smiling and shaking your head. Please take time to put it down. Do not read it all at once the way I did. Savor every word instead. Share her pathos. Feel her humanity. Get clear. There IS at least one sassy psychic graced by God or the universe to see your future. Alyson, a gifted author, is living proof."
