Book Talk/Character Talk

Add it: Goodreads
Describe your book in one word:
Twisted Fairtales. Oh, you said one word? Can I just use twisted? That works too LOL J
Cast your heroine:
Greta is a seventeen year old kick-ass warrior chick who manages to be both strong and vulnerable at the same time. That last part ticks her off royally and she does her damndest not to let anyone else see. I think the perfect movie star to play that role would probably be Nina Dobrev from Vampire Diaries. (But you have to be able to visualize her as a blonde) 
Cast your hero:
Issac is the Goblin King. ‘Nuff said. Okay, we could say a little more. He’s a big, self-centered, muscle-bound jerk with an entitlement complex a mile wide in fact. But he also has these hidden depths that he likes to use to throw Greta off balance and keep her from making up her mind about him one way or another. I imagine him being played by Patrick John Flueger
Favorite line by your heroine:
“You’re deluding yourself if you think you can know who I am or what I want from spying on me in my dreams. Therein lies a realm of fantasy, and while it’s an interesting place to visit every once in a while, we both have to live in the real world, don’t we?”
Favorite line by your hero:
“I’m in your mind, getting to know every part of you. You can put up walls, but sooner or later I’ll break down every last one. There won’t be any secret you can keep or any part of you I don’t know…Intimately.”
Choose an on-screen kiss that best illustrates the intensity between these two characters:
I always think of the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Not so much because of who the actors were, or what the characters did (they played spies for opposing factions of government), but because those characters had some SERIOUS volatility between them. Bitter enemies out to kill each other…but oh man, when they came together that energy went white hot in a flash!

Author Talk

Why do you write in the genre you write?:
Because this is what comes best and most naturally to me!
What other genres would you consider and why?:
I’ve also written in paranormal romance, steampunk, horror, contemporary…under my alternate persona…but I love fantasy the best!
Can you give us a hint of something else you’re working on?:
I’m always working on more Greta, and I actually hope to have a novella for my readers sometime in the early fall, just in time for Greta’s release in November!
Hey, Melissa! Thanks so much for having me as a visitor, darlin’! Ask me anything else and I’ll be around to answer questions J

Hi! How are you? Excited? Nervous? Hating your MS? Loving your MS? Yep, I get it. Been there, have the wrinkles to prove it. But that's what retinoids are for, and besides--

Wait, let me back up and do this introduction thing properly. And, you know, by "properly" I mean Hart of Dixie style.


So, you're probably wondering who I am and why I think I'm a rockstar, when I'm just a brand new little newbie mentor. Well, here's the thing--I'm not really one of those "I think I'm a rockstar" kind of people, so we won't be going there. Sorry. BUT I can tell you who I am. Here goes.

Make your readers uncomfortable

I have this one scene in TWISTED ROOT that is…intense. It is so intense that I’ve had reactions all over the place from my CP’s and betas.

Let me start by saying I have a ton of people read my work. An 8 person crit group, 2 crit partners, and 2 that I would say are alpha readers—friends who read tons and have strong editing backgrounds.

So I receive crits all over the place, and this scene has created some interesting responses. One critter went crazy for it, loved it. Another referred to it as slightly icky. I loved that response. :) Another blushed when we discussed it in person. And all of the male critters I have thought it was awesome—go figure. Men have a much higher threshold for uncomfortable-ness, than most women. (JMHO!!!)

Now I’m not saying I don’t adore all my readers. I do. I couldn’t write without them. Each one makes my work stronger. But here’s the thing, I’m keeping the scene, as it is (for now). Wanna know why?

I think as a writer you should make your reader uncomfortab…
