I don’t think of myself as romantic, and never thought I was very imaginative, but now I write romance and have had people tell me they can’t believe my imagination. What? LOL. My new series, my spinoff of the Dracones is a paranormal/Fantasy, a romance set in another realm, and I am having a blast with it. You don’t know what you can do until you try. I’ve been an Animal artist since I was 12, and have sold my artwork all over the world, thanks to the internet. I still have an Etsy store but don’t do a whole lot with it, and once in a while, a print sells. 😊  My mother used to say, how do you do that? Then she tried drawing and painting, and what do you know, she drew and painted some amazing stuff.

Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something! Just go do it!

How I Came About Writing and My Writing Journey

Back in the tenth which was the year of 2014, I always enjoyed writing stories when our teacher gave us that particular assignment. I always came up with something new and exciting, if it’s not about wives killing their cheating husbands or maids having sex with their boss (those I kept to myself) it was either girls going to party and having fun. I always loved to write, it was an absolute passion of mine and when a friend of mine suggested I check out Wattpad, I decided that I should join it. When I first join, it was purely reading even though I had stories floating around in my head which I thought was never good enough. I continued to read until one day I finally gave myself a stern pep talk. I remember the words like it was yesterday “If this is something you love, just go for it.” So, after giving myself that pep talk, I finally decided that I was going to write my first amateur novel, “The Billionaire’s Proposal.” It’s a novel about two singles Nyla and Kyle who had a one-night stand and then decides they should start a relationship that later came to be a whole lot of mess. It was a novel that was properly written but I loved dearly and even though it wasn’t getting enough views, I still decided that I should continue to write it. It had eventually started to get popular, but the popularity wasn’t what motivated me, it was the fact that I was doing something that I love and what others love as well. Even though I had bad critics, and when I say bad I mean really bad like jumping off a cliff bad. I wanted to give up and throw in the towel, because this was a story that had come to mind and I thought that everybody will love it but oh my was I sadly mistaken. My loyal readers gave me some advice, and I took it and gobbled it up and after two days of feeling sorry for myself and being ‘depressed,’ I finally put on back my big girl panties and started writing again.

How and when my writing journey took off?

Back in early 2016, I was speaking to a Jamaican author and I was explaining to him that being published was something that I really wanted, it was something that I had dreamed of. This particular author was and is still very popular, he was the first author who had inspired me to write. I had asked him for advice and he told me everything I should know and I followed them thoroughly. From there and then I published my first novel in August. It was slow at first seeing that I was a new author and I didn’t have much experience, I tried to do what other authors were doing and nothing seem to work. For months things were slow and I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to. Eventually, I began to promote my book, I reached out about 50 or more reviewers with only about 10 responded back to me. It was rough but at the end of the day, I wasn’t giving up and I continued to push and push until sales picked up, it still wasn’t much but it was better. I am still trying, still fighting and pushing myself to reach my full potential when it comes on to writing because I want to be the best that I can be, set goals and smash the hell out of them.

#IndyAuthorTalk with Melanie Nowak! New Cover and so much more!

Hi – I’m author Melanie Nowak and I am excited to introduce new readers to the ALMOST HUMAN world of my Venomous Vampires!

The ALMOST HUMAN series is available as 2 trilogies of epic-length novels, and has also been recently re-published as 2 series of novellas (21 total). A feast of a story served in gluttonous portions or bite-sized snacks…pick your poison!

You can check them out on my Amazon Author Page.

I have always lived in a bit of a fantasy world (just ask my teachers!) and spent my life envisioning extraordinary worlds and paranormal characters. In 2003, when certain characters hijacked my imagination and constantly invaded my thoughts, I decided to write down their story for my own remembrance. It turned out to be 3 full novels worth of a story and the ALMOST HUMAN saga was born!

In 2008, while earning my Master’s Degree in Library Science, a professor introduced us to an upcoming invention in the book world – Amazon’s Kindle. I immediately applied to have my books e-published by Amazon so I could feel that I had closure with them and could move on to writing more. They were accepted and ALMOST HUMAN – The First Trilogy was on Kindle for it’s initial roll-out! They began earning quite a bit of attention and a cult following almost immediately… It has been a wild ride into a new career as an author ever since!

Are you new to the ALMOST HUMAN series?

As I mentioned above, there are 2 series in this venomous vampire saga. While both follow the same characters chronologically, you can begin the Second series without having read the First.

The First Series, set around a small upstate college town, is a paranormal romantic fantasy of drama, angst and action. An elder vampire struggles with his faith, his crusade to mentor others, and his attraction to a young college woman, who is trying to navigate the hurdles of dealing with her peers, her job, vampires, zombies, and…college.  

(1st Place Winner by open public vote “Best Vampire Series 2012” ~ The Paranormal Romance Guild)

The Second Series has more of a paranormal urban fantasy feel, still filled with drama, action and romance, the viewpoints broaden to include more of an ensemble cast of vampires and humans who have traveled beyond college to navigate adulthood, and discover paranormal abilities previously unknown. They must learn to master the difficult nuances of balancing thirst, power and…marriage. Oh, and they may just have to save the world.

(1st Place Winner by open public vote “Best Vampire Series 2015” ~ The Paranormal Romance Guild)


Both series were recently read and reviewed by NerdGirl’s own Melanie Newton #NerdGirlVamp, who called ALMOST HUMAN her favorite vampire series of 2016, and said “Seriously, if you aren’t reading this series, you should be!”.

From now until the end of October, I am currently holding weekly raffles on my website

to win 3 free ebooks of the ALMOST HUMAN First or Second series novellas!

Winner’s choice – discover the series or win whichever books you are up to!

Enter at www.MelanieNowak.com/giveaways.htm
Both new fans and long-time readers of the series have been eagerly awaiting a new installment of adventures for their favorite characters – human or otherwise. I am very excited to announce the arrival of my newest book coming out October 27th!

Jean Murray – Paranormal Romance Author

Which is better romance or bro-mance?

Often my favorite story isn’t so much the romantic relationship between the hero and heroine. No, it’s the love-hate relationship between the opposition. You know the dynamic I’m talking about. The preoccupation lending to eventual obsession. It’s more than just a battle between good and evil—it’s personal.

Thor and Loki. Harry Potter and Voldemort. Superman and Lex Luther. Captain Kirk and Khan. Batman and the Joker. Care to name a few of your own? I’m sure a few dysfunctional relationships come to mind.

What makes these bro-mances between enemies so great? They have a vestige interest in making each other suffer. A level of obsession and sickness that gets stronger with each passing day the other draws life into their body. A hatred certainly, but also a mutual, I can’t quite say respect, but something equivalent to it. Otherwise they wouldn’t find each other to be a worthy opponent. Perhaps, they are more alike than they would like to admit or see those same very qualities in themselves yet one is successful and the other is not.

Core beliefs and internalized values are the very essence of a bro-mance relationship. Core values influence how the hero and enemy see the world, their wants, needs, relationships, and their health and happiness. Often the other threaten this way of life. These are the key ingredients that pull the two together but also repels them.

In my novel, Soul Awakened, two brothers are at odds. One was birthed, the other created by the blood of Asar, God of the Underworld. At odds from the beginning Bomani and Bakari have lived vastly different lives. Born into the warrior camp Bomani fought for survival day in and day out. Born into a life a luxury Bakari has darker ambitions to gain his power through treachery and deceit, until the fateful day he is captured by their enemies, entombed and tortured for five long years. A beautiful redhead draws him to the light, a path of redemption. The only thing that stand between him and Kendra is his honorable brother, Bomani who will see to his end.

The dynamic between these two was so amazing to write and probably the hardest. Their story is a true bro-mance in the most delectably evil and twisted way.

What is your favorite enemy bro-mance? Share your favorite as a comment here or on my Facebook Page and enter to win an ebook copy of Soul Awakened, book 2 in my Key to the Cursed Series!

THE HUMAN REALM, HIS BATTLEFIELD.

Asar, the Egyptian God of the Underworld, has been tortured and left soulless by a malevolent goddess, relegating him to consume the very thing he was commissioned to protect. Human souls. Now an empty shell of hatred, Asar vows to kill the goddess and anyone involved in her release, but fate crosses his path with a beautiful blonde huntress who has a soul too sweet to ignore.

DEADLY SECRETS BETTER LEFT UNEARTHED.

Lilly, fearless commander of the Nehebkau huntresses, is the only thing standing in the way of the goddess’ undead army unleashing hell on earth. But Lilly has a secret—one she is willing to sell her soul to keep. If the Underworld god discovers her role in the dig that released the goddess, she will lose everything, including his heart.

Hallowread Attending Author Exclusive with Kim Alexander!

You’d think after co-producing Sirius XM Book Radio for over 5 years, listening to hundreds of hours of audio, and interviewing both authors and voice actors, I’d be better equipped to have one of my own books turned into audio. You’d be mistaken!

I love audio books. I guess I’m not alone–Audible is setting the world on fire these days, and voice actors and authors are lining up at the ACX website to meet n’ greet and make connections. That’s how I found my actor, William Turbett. I posted my audition script–which included multiple human and non- human characters acting bitchy at a cocktail party–and he killed it. We agreed on terms, and he got to work.

(I should also mention my novel, The Sand Prince, is epic fantasy and typically for the genre runs about 120,000 words, which in the end came out to about 12 hours. That is a BIG commitment on the part of the actor, so when he tells me he loved the book, I hope he means it!)

I’ve listened to many, many audio books, but until this spring, I’d never heard my own words–my characters, who I love fiercely and protectively–my jokes, my sex scenes, my murders–I’d never heard them out loud. And it was an experience! The jokes landed! Tense scenes were absolutely fraught! It was subtle and funny and made sense. And the emotion was turned up to eleven.

Writing a book is usually an intensely personal act. This is a world of your own creation, peopled with characters you bring to life. They turn into so much more than puppets acting out scenes–they have decisions and interior lives of their own, they love and hate and act sometimes (it seems) without any input from the writer. I was trepidatious to say the least to turn my darlings over to someone else. Would William understand why Rhuun is so defensive? Or why Hellne is a great queen but an indifferent mother? Would he be able to pronounce words in the Eriisai dialect which until now have only lived in my head?

He did all those things, and more. To hear them interact, laugh, cry, insult and sometimes be kind to each other was something like a miracle. So now my story of two worlds–torn apart by war and betrayal yet inexorably linked by magic and love is now yours to listen to. I hope you love it, too.

“When the storm came, it was made of magic, not rain, and when it had passed, the life and the city Hellne knew were changed forever.”

Two worlds, divided by a door.

On the war-ravaged demon world of Eriis, Hellne, the fierce young queen, fights to keep her people alive…

On the green and gentle human world of Mistra, the demons have faded into myth. Only a handful of old men and children still guard The Door between the worlds…

Rhuun, the Prince of Eriis, uncovers a forgotten book written by a human, sparking an obsession with the other world. When he is forced to flee Eriis, he must escape through The Door or pay the price in blood.

The humans of Mistra are not what Rhuun was expecting—and one insufferable young woman in particular is about to find out that the demons of Eriis are not mythological after all…
