Hi, I’m Alex Aster, and I’m an author in NYC.


My book, inspired by Colombian folklore, EMBLEM ISLAND: CURSE OF THE NIGHT WITCH is coming out in 2020 from Sourcebooks. Aside from being an author, I’m the Chief Innovation Officer of The Newsette, a media company with millions of monthly readers that has worked with brands like Twitter, LinkedIn, Ulta Beauty, Casper, and more. I’m also a fan of TikTok, one of the world’s largest social media platforms, where I’ve accumulated 200,000+ followers, millions of likes, and tens of millions of views in the last few months. I’ve been featured in publications like Seventeen, Inc, Bustle, Brit + Co, and more.


“I don't like to talk about my dreams. I like to make them happen. I prefer to talk about them when they're done.”

- Close friend of The Newsette, Diane von Furstenberg
