The Snow Killer | Free On Kindle This Weekend!

As my book birthdays are fast approaching, I thought I’d celebrate by making The Snow Killer FREE on Amazon Kindle! Details and links below.

The Snow Killer (plot):

When Danny Fores loses his family in a car accident, he sinks into depression. Two years later, he’s still blaming himself for their death. When Danny meets Diane Warner, a thirty-five year old lawyer: she brings the good, the bad and the murderous to his door.

But can he cope?

Happy Birthday, Book!

If I could show you what Little Mel was like as a child, it would be a blonde little bookworm who thought writers were magicians.

Now I’m a slightly taller redhead with PROOF writers are magic. Why? Because I am one. I get to create characters with emotions and reasons and a life entirely separate from my own, and that makes me so happy every single day.

Today I am even happier, and I shall tell you why. Today is the 2nd anniversary of my first book being published.  THE SNOW KILLER joined our shelves November 19th 2013. And I haven’t stopped writing books since.

It’s taken many shapes and forms since release (above is the latest and best edition of the cover). It’s available in print and E-book, across the world (thanks Amazon!)

But every time I look at this book, all of my books, I am reminded that – despite everything – I am following my dreams. Not just as some silly fantasy, but as a career.

I may not be a bestseller or a household name like Stephen King, but I’m working my way up one day at a time.

So please join me in wishing my Book Baby a very happy 2nd birthday!

Countdown To Christmas: Days 10,11,12 and 13!

Hi everyone! Sorry – I know I’m terrible at keeping these up to date, but I have exhaustion so it’s a bit hard to stay awake to do anything!

For days 10 – 13 you get an ANNOUNCEMENT (ooh!):

I am glad to announce that I will be re-writing THE SNOW KILLER in order to make it bigger and better!

This makes any copies of THE SNOW KILLER out there now Limited Edition (and probably signed) so lucky you if you have one!

The Snow Killer by Melissa Holden

I plan to have the work done by Spring 2015 but maybe don’t hold me to that. Lorna Holland (co-author of AFTER US) is helping me out for this one, so big shout out to her!

AFTER US

I will still be using the same cover that Mark Looker designed, just because I love it so much, and the current version will be available right up and till release day! I will also be adding a print edition of the book for all those paperback lovers out there.

I hope this was exciting news for you all – I know it’s got me feeling excited and festive!

Christmas Book Sale!

Hi WordPress!

My debut book, “The Snow Killer” is celebrating Christmas by going on sale!

Now only 99p, “The Snow Killer” is a Romance/Murder/Mystery with a twist.

“When Danny Fores loses his family in a car accident, he sinks into depression. Two years later, he’s still blaming himself for their death. When Danny meets Diane Warner, a thirty-five year old lawyer: she brings the good, the bad and the murderous to his door.

But can he cope?”

“The Snow Killer” took less than two weeks to write, a week to edit and just over two weeks to publish. This was to mirror the pace of the book and help readers understand the rhythm behind the project.

Please check it out on Amazon, but hurry as the sale ends Christmas Day! >>>
