News and Musings


I am bubbling over and want to share some amazing news with you all. Drum roll...My newest story, Byzantine Provocateur will be out from Amber Quill Press on March 6. Yay!! When I finished the edits and sent it off, I could barely contain my relief and excitement. Still can't. One more week! I also have four more stories in the works and I hope to have them completed by the end of the year.

Second piece of good news: the awesome Dempsey Sanders has invited me to be a permanent guest writer at The Movie411. Whoo Hoo!! I had a hellagood time reviewing Tron: Legacy and The Green Hornet and I have some wicked cool ideas already percolating in my brain. Hmmm...I wonder if Dempsey knows what he's getting into? :)



That's it for now. I'm going to relax this weekend and watch the Oscars. I love to see who's wearing what designer and snark about the worst dressed. I have my handy dandy Oscar ballot ready with all my picks filled and I know that they probably do not align with anyone else's, but I did pick the right Best Picture 4 years in a row now so we'll see if I'm right this year with The King's Speech. Will I keep the streak alive? Do you even really care? LOL Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Hi Dez, Byzantine is a novella/short story and you are right, I need to put together a blog tour. :)

    Of course, I'll be at Hollywood Spy post Oscar. I can't wait to read about your best and worst dressed.;)

  9. you have a big number of writers and writing blogs in my blog roll you may ask their owners to host you in your blog tour! You wouldn't believe what great marketing it brings to the authors and their books.

  10. Last year's Oscars were such a bore if I remember correctly, but I really don't remember. I recall writing a post calling them the "Blahscars" and that's about it. I'm sure I'll watch, but every year I lose more interest in them. Not having seen but a couple of the movies doesn't help much either.

  11. Mel, congrats! We're all excited about your new story! :) Oh, and I love the title... Byzantine Provocateur... it sounds mystical and quite exotic.
    A permanent guest writer at Dempsey's blog?! Yey! That's great, since your reviews there are the best of all.

  13. Lee, I know what you mean. Nothing about the Oscars broadcast last year was truly exciting. I watch every year because I love film and can't not watch.

  15. Congratulations Melissa! Being a published writer is a tremendous honor.

    Also, it is very encouraging news to hear that you will be a permanent guest writer at The Movie411. You definitely illustrate a talent as a shrewd film critic. I look forward to read your next review!

    5 for 5 on Best Picture. Good job!

  17. Thanks Matt!! I'm honored you think I have a talent for being a shrewd film critic. :)

    I can't believe I've correctly guessed the Best Picture 5 in a row. Hope that doesn't mean I'm a stodgy thinker. LOL
