If you must know …
I’m Melanie Harvey, a mother of 3 kids, all grown up and out of the house, so it’s a lot quieter now. My youngest and only girl graduated high school this past spring, middle one has struck out on his own but still takes cars apart in my garage and cleans out my gutters. And my oldest is a Petty Officer
Third Class Second Class! as of November 2015! He also recently moved to Texas for his second stint in the United States Navy. Yes, I went to Texas for Labor Day 2015. It was a million degrees with 92 percent humidity. No, I’m probably not going back.
I’ve self-published two novels, and yes, you can buy either a cheapo Kindle version or average priced paperback version on Amazon of Nobody’s Hero (just investigate that top left button up there). Or you can buy the cheap-o Kindle version (yay!) of the next novel, Iced Out: An Abby & Henry Caper (just investigate that second button up there).
Right now I’m working on a second interracial love story (third, really, I guess, if you count Henry & Abby, not sure I do just yet)… This one involves Chicago, Thoroughbreds, Craigslist, gambling, and… oh! Murder! Almost forgot that part. I had this idea not long after I finished Hero, but it didn’t click together until recently, and I’m really happy about that. IF you’d like a free preview copy as soon as I’m done with the first draft, post any honest review of Iced Out on Amazon and email a link to your review to firstname.lastname@example.org. (I need reviews!) I’ll send you the new novel in whatever e-book format you like as soon as I’m done. (I will be asking you for feedback, but free is still a great deal still, admit it!)
If you have any comments you want to pass along to me, you can also reach me at email@example.com— or click that big “Contact Me!” button up there. I’m findable other ways too, but if you think you might be too far away for the hollering-out-the-window method, try the internet ways.
And yes, I am seriously white. I even grew up in the suburbs, though I’ve lived a long way from there for 25 years now. A few people have been surprised by that, so I thought I’d clarify. Though someone told me that he thought I was the most creamy white all the way through girl he’d ever met … and then I mentioned Raekwon and Mos Def in the same sentence and he didn’t know what to think anymore.
Keep guessing, that’s my suggestion.
