AND NOW, A WORD FROM THE SITE OWNER...

Greetings, humans. My name is JJ Fletcher, and I am pleased to welcome you to my chief of staff's web domain here at melaniefletcher.com.

Ho-hum -- I suppose I should say something at this juncture about the Redheaded One. When not bathing, grooming, feeding, petting or otherwise entertaining us with our favorite bathroom show, "When Apes Get Wet!" she spends her time cleaning our litter tray, obtaining new and interesting toys and generally ensuring that our lives remain comfortable and full of kibble. Oh, and apparently she writes, as well -- I myself prefer to watch C-Span, but to each his own.

If you're new to the site, I encourage you to browse through our pages. We're always happy to receive Email, although general meanness and (ahem) catty comments will be met with icy hauteur and a nasty scratch. Don't say I didn't warn you.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I must lick my butt.


PUBLISHING NEWS

2/19/2015:
I finally got my crap together and submitted a short story to the Jim Baen Memorial Contest this year. My short story "A Sunbonnet for Shady Sadie" didn't make the final cut, but it did make it to the top fifteen stories. I'm currently doing some motivation tweaking, then out it goes to the magazines. Wish me luck!

In novel news, I'm very close to finishing the edits on A Most Malicious Murder, my AU murder mystery starring Edgar Allan Poe and Lewis Carroll. This will be self-pubbed through Belaurient Press, and should be available in ebook and print format by the end of April.

In other publishing news Future Classics will be bringing out the second volume of their anthology series in July. Stay tuned for more information!
