a new site

It took a long time (3 years) with several false starts, but folks, I've FINALLY got a proper author website:  melwestemeier.com. The designer yanked eased me out of my comfort zone and did some pretty creative things--go on over and check it out. I'll be posting on the new site as well, and shutting this one down next summer when I have some free time to sort out the details.
And here's an added i Read more of this blog post »

Melissa and 1 other person liked Doreen's review of A Single Thread:
A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier
"Living in Winchester in 1932, Violet Speedwell, 38, is a “surplus woman,” one of those women “left single as a result of [World War I] and unlikely to marry.” She has recently moved from her family home and life with her constantly complaining mother" Read more of this review »

I'm willing to read almost anything. I like YA, romance, dystopian sci fi--loved the Gallagher Girl series by Ally Carter, for example, and Legend by Marie Lu. I will not finish this book. It was trite and plotless by page 100 and the characters are ...more
