Melinda writes fantastic short stories and novels in the fantasy realms centered around dragons and armies of fictional characters.
Melinda’s book “Curse Breaker: Enchanted,” which is included on the winner’s Kindle, is a fascinating read. Here’s a look at the blurb:
Start No Fires. Carry No Weapons. Do No Harm.
Those three rules safeguarded countless generations of travelers through the enchanted forest—until they didn’t. One boy’s murder ripped open a gateway allowing evil to enter. Now no one is safe from corruption.
Enchanted trees take Sarn to where the forest failed to uphold its rules. Seeing a dead child gifted with the same magic as his son unhinges Sarn. He vows to find out the truth no matter what the cost. But his gift is untrained.
Finding answers won’t be easy. Sarn must balance nights serving the Rangers with days dedicated to hiding his son from the dark forces stalking them both. When Sarn’s masters demand he abandon the quest, he faces an impossible choice—doom the ghost whose murder endangers them all or die from the backlash of breaking his word. With the odds stacked against him, can Sarn fix anything or will all be lost?
In a country where magic is illegal, an untrained mage is their only hope.

The first book in the “Curse Breaker” series named “Enchanted” was very well done. Some readers will love or hate this, but I enjoyed the slower pace that allowed us to soak up the extraordinary world Melinda has created. Each character has many layers to explore and aren’t just linear/predictable devices for a plot. They’re real and I got to know each of them. The world itself was very in-depth, and the storytelling sometimes left me behind in the details, but in the end I was able to appreciate how much thought the author put into this world. I wish more fantasy authors would go to such lengths!
I highly recommend “Curse Breaker: Enchanted” for those looking for an amazing fantasy world with vivid characters. Best news is that you can read it for free!

She leaves the running of her newsletter to a cast of lovable characters who are far better at engaging in magical mayhem than in effectively marketing the books they star in.
