In the spring of 2016, she launched her paranormal, romantic suspense novel, The Secret of Hillcrest House.

Catching Up With Melanie

I’m thrilled to report back on the results of my A Shadow in the Past book tour. It couldn’t have worked out better. At the Central Library in Aberdeen, where I donated a copy to their Local Studies Department for helping me with my research, I sold 3 copies. Pretty good for an unknown commodity.

Then, at my ‘official’ Scottish launch on 17th August at the Rannes Hall in Kennethmont, Aberdeenshire, I sold … drum roll, please … 17 copies! Hmm… 17 on the 17th, coincidence?

After that, I sold two more, so in total my trip resulted in me selling 22 paperbacks and on amazon during the month of August,  I sold 17 kindle versions!

I like August.

Continuing with the “I like August” theme, so far August has the makings of a record-setting month for sales of The Secret of Hillcrest House.

The Secret of Hillcrest House

The Secret of Hillcrest House

Sometimes there's more to a house than bricks and mortar. Hillcrest House is one such place. Perched on a cliff in the picturesque town of Angel Falls, there is more to this Victorian mansion than meets the eye. When referring to the house, the locals use the word haunted on a regular basis. Strange visions appear in the windows, especially the second-floor ones over the side porch. Even stranger events take place within its four walls. Rumour has it, the original owners, Asher and Maggie Hargrave, never left their beloved home. They claim the couple and their family are responsible for driving people away. Over the years, Hillcrest House has changed hands numerous times. No one stays long. Renovations begin then stop and the house is once more abandoned. The latest in this long line of owners is Jessica Maitland. Will Jessica be the next one to succumb or will she unravel the mystery of the haunting of Hillcrest House? More info →
