The Photo Beyond the Cover

The photo behind the cover of Beyond the Next Star!! The expression on both their faces perfectly represents the mood I was trying to convey for this book – and it gives me the tingles every time! I can’t thank Covers By Robin enough for making this cover come to life!

Kirkus Reviews Beyond the Next Star

PINCH ME! More praise coming in for Beyond the Next Star… from Kirkus Reviews! “An engaging and unusual otherworldly tale… The author describes her alien creations in exquisite detail…and her comparisons to familiar Earth creatures make for easy visualization. Even pacing and smooth transitions to different characters’ points of view make for a quick, solid read that remains consistently compelling.”

Podcast Featured Interview

I’m so excited to be featured on The Bookshop at the End of the Internet, a podcast hosted by Stacey Horan! “Melody has kept the dark grit from her paranormal romance Night Blood series and upped the stakes by taking the drama, danger and romance to outer space. Beyond the Next Star allowed Melody to world-build and even create her own language for her alien characters. As with all of her books, this new series includes plenty of danger and excitement as the romance unfolds.” Check it out!
