Meet and Greet - Author Melodie Campbell

Happy Saturday!

I am very happy that you get a chance to meet Canadian writer Melodie Campbell!

I met Melodie thorugh the ImajinBooks in Twitter. I was searching for guest bloggers and Melodie reacted very quickly with her suggestions. I am grateful for that, Melodie!

So, ladies and gentlemen, let's meet and greet Melodie!

Information about Melodie Campbell - who is she? Let's meet her!

Melodie Campbell has been a bank manager, marketing director, comedy writer, college instructor and possibly the worst runway model ever.  Melodie got her start writing comedy, so it’s no surprise that editors have called her fiction “wacky” and “laugh out loud funny”.  She has over 200 publications and has won 5 awards for fiction.  She is currently the General Manager of Crime Writers of Canada, and has taught fiction writing for ten years. 

Where can you find her?

Meet Rowena Revel!

“Is that a broadsword on your belt, or are you just glad to see me?”

When Rowena falls through her classroom wall into a medieval world, she doesn’t count on being kidnapped – not once, but twice, dammit – and the stakes get higher as the men get hotter. Unwanted husbands keep piling up; not only that, she has eighteen-year-old Kendra to look out for, and a war to prevent. Good thing she can go back through the wall when she needs to…or can she?

Chapter 16

“How did you do that?” Kendra gasped.
“Do what?”
“I just saw you walk right through that wall!”
“Oh that….” I said, brushing myself off. “Look sweetie, not to change the subject, but I don’t have a whole lot of time-”
“And who is that?”
Kendra gaped at Logan, who stood at least a foot taller than her. He, in turn, gazed down at her as if he had just discovered the meaning of life, the universe and everything that might possibly be in it.
“Damn,” I mumbled. “Kendra – Logan, Logan – Kendra. Now that we’re all introduced, I really have to hustle.”
Kendra’s eyes widened. “Is he for real?”
“Yes, yes, he’s real,” I said, trying to speed things along. “He’s a cousin of my fiancé.”
Kendra stared at me, mouth open. “He’s Ivan’s cousin?”
“Not Ivan. Sargon.” I sighed. “It’s complicated.”
She crossed her arms. “I can follow.”
As a very curious Logan watched us, I sucked in air. “Okay, here goes. I was married to Ivan the first day I got there, but then I got kidnapped. Gareth’s land doesn’t recognize the laws of Huel, but if you have sex with the same guy three times in one day in this place, you’re considered pledged. So I’m kind of married to Gareth too. Except then Ivan got banished – long story, not nice – and now I’m affianced to the King.”
“The king?” Kendra frowned. “You’re hitched to two of these bozos and engaged to another?”
“Kind of. It wasn’t my fault.”

That was the Meet and Greet with Melodie Campbell! Melodie will hopefully come and visit my blog again in the future. She has a great experience writing about writing comedy and hopefully she will share this with us!

    I am very glad that I got contacts to Canadian authors, too. That is thanks to Cheryl from ImajinBooks. I have to admit, that I know a lot about US authors, but Canada is still quite unknown to me. Therefore I am extra glad, that Melodie came by!

    Inga, delighted to make your acquaintance. My critique partner is from Estonia, and is currently writing a YA set in Estonia during WWII. I've forwarded her your link.

  8. Sherry, Thanks for coming by and showing your support to Melodie! And nice to meet you, too!
    Sherry, you made me very curious about your critique partner. I guess she does not live in Estonia or does she? :) Your comment just made me think how small the world is!
