  1. Hey Christina! Any idea if Melanie will be at The Kingston Writers Fest? My book club was thinking about making this our pre-festival book!

  2. We hope to be at the Fest. Thank you for thinking of Dead Beautiful for your club! Melanie will be more than happy to visit any book club for a reading and conversation!
