After baking all yesterday at the beach, it’s a good excuse to hide in the shade today and get in that word count. Editing sucks, but this book won’t get better by itself!
Seriously a dream come true! The Queen of alien romance herself, Ruby Dixon, recommended Beyond the Next Star to her followers. PINCH ME!!
Getting goodie bags packed and prepped! Super pumped to have Beyond the Next Star picked as a book club read and to be invited as their featured author!
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!
Everyone has things to do, and who doesn’t like to write them down? I’ve given pens away for a while…but the sticky notes are new!! Remember your “to do” in night blood style LOL!
Join me tomorrow 4-6pm to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day at San Marco Bookstore in Jacksonville. I’ll be signing and selling copies of all my books, including hard covers of Beyond the Next Star!
My first book signing for Beyond the Next Star!! Join me Aug. 29, 4-6pm at San Marco Books and More, 1971 San Marco Blvd in Jacksonville, to purchase signed paperbacks and hardcovers as well as my Night Blood series. AND, as usual, free bookmarks, chapsticks and pens for all!
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.”
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!
Do I actually believe in aliens? Did I really read my first romance novel in high school? Did I write Beyond the Next Star on my cellphone? Separate fact from fiction and learn a little bit more about me and my new sci-fi romance novel, Beyond the Next Star!
