Melinda’s Magical Time-In Her Playroom (not an office.)

Friday, September 28th, 2018

This is a picture of my playroom where I’m spending happy creative time since The Wild Rose Press contracted the outrageously fun first book of my Dark Inclinations series, BITTEN: Confessions of a Menopausal Vampire. The book’s due to my editor mid-October and will be a Wild Rose Press Black Rose line release in eBook, paperback and audio.

Speaking of audio, while I’m getting up to dark fun and games with my menopausal vampire in the Seattle underworld, both of my YA ghost stories are in audiobook production. The GHOSTLY ACTS audiobook will have exciting production effects and music that will make listening to the story a great immersive experience. THE HAUNTING OF JOSH WESTON’s narrator sounds just like the Josh of my imagination. How lucky is that!!

Heigh ho, heigh ho! Mmmmm’s off to play with the menopausal vampire!

Melinda Sells Out at PNWA!

Melinda Sells Out!

I’m a longtime member of Pacific Northwest Writers Association. PNWA is one of the largest regional writers organizations, and over five hundred writers attended the annual conference last week. This year’s literary  contest had a thousand entries in twelve categories.  I try to attend the annual conference where I serve on panels, teach workshops and hang out with talented writers. I also enter one of my new projects in the literary contest to try out the opening on reader/judges. My new YA thriller, The Boyfriend App, won a finalist award in the Romance category. It was my pleasure to meet two Wild Rose Press authors, Christine Grabowski and Kerry Blaisdale, and sit the Autograph Party with them. The picture of me behind my two award-winning YA paranormals on the left is the “selling out” I’m referring to. It was a grand party and I had an autographing good time!

FUN! Mmmmmmmmmmmmelinda
