Newsworthy Notes:


I'm thrilled to reveal my cover for my first contemporary novel and first in series! Her Alaskan Hero is currently available for pre-order on Kindle and Kobo. And will be available on iBooks soon. Release date at all ebook vendors is August 25, 2015!

After being left at the altar, California girl Sabrina Tate needs to make a fast getaway. With her famous overbearing parents and the paparazzi hot on her heels, where else is a jilted bride to go to lick her wounds but Alaska? With only her tropical honeymoon clothes in tow, she makes her escape. For two weeks, she’ll live on her own and prove to herself—and her family—that she can make it without a husband. 

Zak Forrester is a man on a mission. He’s turned his rugged yet luxurious Alaskan lodge into a hotspot for hunters, all in the hope to make up for a painful event in his past. But when Sabrina—one of the rare women to enter his rugged realm—stumbles into his world, he can’t get rid of her fast enough. He has no time for her yoga, vegetarian meal requests, or Scrabble.

Soon, neither can resist the other, and two hearts collide. With time ticking away, they have to decide where they belong. Is a life in a different world better than being a world apart?


Congratulations to Rebecca for securing a contract with Shine for her New Adult title Right Kind of Mistake. Here is the official press release:

Judith Graves, of Leap Books’ YA/NA e-novella line, Shine, has picked up world rights for the two volume, New Adult, e-original series, RIGHT KIND OF MISTAKE by Rebecca Thomas, which features heartbroken and afraid of commitment, Haylie, who's only looking for a few hours of pure bliss.  But hockey hero Cam wants more than a hook-up. His goal? Ice-melting romance.


Thomas, an Ignite the Flame contest winner, also has adult historical romance novellas published with Entangled Publishing, The Blacksmith's Son and The Earl's Christmas Colt.


Melinda is a new contributor for the online magazine Women Write About Comics. Melinda's articles will be featured primarily in the LifeStyle and Opinions sections, but from time to time she'll stray into the Drink Your Comics and Staff Picks areas.

Start spreading the news…

That’s right folks! This southern gal and her Alaskan partner-in-writing will descend upon New York City in July for the Romance Writers of America National Conference.

While I have traveled the country and seen many wonderful places, I’ve never been to NY. I’m a giddy girl and I’’m sure Rebecca will get tired of my tourist attitude after a few days.

Top Ten Reasons We LOVE Summer:

Alaskan Style:

1. Daylight, daylight, daylight! Yay, daylight! Hours upon hours of it.

2.  All those projects we put off last winter can get done now, because we have the energy to get them done. (amazing what daylight does for you)

3.  Planting flowers.

4.  Long walks listening to audiobooks on my iphone.

5.  Horseback rides.

Floridian Style:

6. Pool time!

7. Beach time!

8. Theme park time!

9. Watermelon time!

10. Longer daylight hours to enjoy all of the above!
