News, News, News!!!

April 2017 is almost over, where did the first third of the year go? After attending my first author signing in Glasgow last December, it has given me the bug and I am looking for others. I am also about to drop book number 19. I would have liked to have done this before now, but with working and kids and life, writing is not flowing like it used to. I have had a shaky couple of months if I am honest.
I am both excited and nervous to release again, but also hopeful that this one will be well liked. If you like Country Music, then you will be in for a treat. It has a beautiful cover, disigned by those awesome Sassy Queens of Design, which I will reveal next weekend along with title.
Logan and Penny are about to be unleashed on th world!!!

I am also hoping to finish my series this year, Lunar Ryce 4, Spring Fever and I, Immortal 4 should hopefully be out by the end of the year. Have a great some, y'all :)

Wow, what a ride? Four years published now, with the bumps, the piracy and the discovering that it's not always wise to trust everyone, I can safely say, this is my year. My sales, I know I shouldn't brag, but this is the best year so far and I am not talking in monetary terms, I am speaking in terms of books leaving the shelf, whether they are free or paid for, amazing.

Four years ago on Aug 5th, my family and I lost everything we owned in a horrific house fire. To say we are out of the woods would be misleading, but we are still here. Life has been a struggle and I have had to go back to work, which means I can't write as much as I used too, but I have released a few books this year taking my total to 18 and there are still more to come.  

Have you see my amazing new covers yet? My new designers are absolutely awesome. Not only do they deliver exactly what you have asked for, but they support their authors and even have a promotion page on FB. Who are they? You ask! Sassy Queens of Design.
They have designed six covers for me now and I will not go anywhere else. They have managed to bring my characters to life, better than any of my covers before. They truly are awesome and so easy to work with. So if you are looking for a cover, then these are your girls. For covers, banners and swag, check out these ladies, you will not be disappointed. Go find them on FB and tell them Melissa sent you :-)

So, what's coming up now in 2016?
I have a few new releases coming up and hoping to release the final installments of I, Immortal and Lunar Ryce, you have waited long enough and I need to put those babies to bed.
I am attending a family Author Event in glorious Glasgow on December 3rd. There are 37 authors attending the signing and we will be talking about our work. It would be lovely to see you there and the best part is I will get to meet some of my readers. I will have some of my books there, but I will also sign your books if you bring them along. I'll have some swag and goodies too, so please, if you can, pop along, bring the kids and have some fun. All proceeds are being donated to Cash for Kids which is a worthy cause. What a fab way to end the year!!
