Author Interview #2 — Alyssa Markins (and Book Launch Pics!)

Guess what? I had the pleasure and honor of being interviewed a second time! (Check out my first author interview here!) This time, the fabulous Alyssa Markins conducted the interview and put it on her website — under the heading "Creativity and Coffee." Isn't that awesome?I had so much fun answering all these questions and letting others know about my book!

Author Interview #1 — Maverick Moses

As you probably know, I released my book this week! Ahhhh! And as part of that release, my friend and AuthorTuber, Maverick Moses, reviewed my book and interviewed me, all at the same time! I am so honored to be featured on his blog and on YouTube in my first AuthorTube appearance! (sort of)If you're wondering if you should read the book, or curious about the characters and my process, or you've never heard of it and want to see what I keep talking about...check it out! You'll be glad you did.Then leave a comment below to let me know what you think and if you agree with his review!<3 MelissaAuthor Interview and Book Review by Maverick MosesP.S. It just hit me. I've been dreaming of doing interviews my entire life. Like seriously. When I was a kid, I was imagining musician interviews (born out of an ill-conceived music career idea which I thankfully gave up on), but I like giving author interviews much better. This is why they say God knows better than we do — I love music, but being an author fits me and my personality much better.But still...I can remember sitting on my bed as a teenager, reading a band interview in a magazine, dreaming one day of seeing my own interview in print. And now...WOW. Like I said, it just hit me. One of my life-long dreams were fulfilled this week, with this interview.One of my other life-long dreams was too, you know, when I released my book. I'm living my dreams, people, and I'm unbelievably grateful. I can't wait to see what comes next!
