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.

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.

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!”.
