A quick hello and Chronicles of the Blood Countess is on sale!

Thanks to you guys and so many other lovely people, I had an excellent book release day this past Friday the 13th.

I'm very lucky and honored and thrilled and now I'm exhausted. :)

Well, I'm tired cause I handed out Irish Soda Bread yesterday at the firehouse for three hours. 

But, I digress.

Thank you. For everything.

I'm heading back into the editing cave...(MUST. GET. BOOK. ONE. EDITED), I will leave you with this...

Melinda De Ross!

In the legendary Transylvania, a castle belonging to Countess Erzsébet Báthory is discovered. Cameraman Hunter Cole and broadcast journalist Serena Scott arrive to make a documentary about the discovery, and the sinister Hungarian noblewoman, known as the most prolific female serial killer in history.
The two Americans could cope with roughing it in a fifteenth-century castle, with no modern amenities. They can even cope with each other, despite their initial mutual dislike for one another, which gradually turns into a mind-blowing attraction.
But when two girls are tortured and killed in Báthory copycat style, the nearby village is shaken to the core. In terror, they wonder who will be next...

On SALE for 99 cents on Amazon

Melinda De Ross lives in her native Romania with her husband and a pair of rude parrots. She attended Law School, got her degree but worked as a journalist for several newspapers, polishing her writing skills.
It never occurred to her that she wanted a career as an author until she began writing, as therapy to get perspective on a crucial part of her life.
Melinda was a professional target shooter for a decade, winning multiple National Championships. She was breaking records in her teens until health issues forced her to give up the sport.
Out of that heartbreak, Rendezvous with Faith—her first novel— started taking shape and so began her career as a Romantic Suspense author.
Other books by Melinda De Ross include:
-       Rendezvous with Faith (initially published under the title Rendezvous with Hymera);
-       Unabridged;
-       Mirage Beyond Flames;
-       Dante’s Amulet;
-       Chronicles of The Blood Countess;
-       Be My Valentine;
-       A Touch Of Poetry.
