Book Updates!

Last year I posted an update about two un-published books. They’re both available now!

The Lily and The Cross: A Ring and Crown Novel

White Nights: A Vampires of Manhattan Novel

These are unedited first drafts.

Sales will still go to support the YALLWEST Book Festival and it’s school outreach program, bringing books and authors to underserved communities.

Here’s my initial statement from last year, discussing the eventual (TODAY!) release of these titles.

xoxo Mel
