Hi, Melissa! Your books are very good, and clean, and I appreciate the time and effort you put into writing and publishing them.
We need more Christian authors like you in this market! Thank you. I did sign up for your newsletter, so am hoping to hear what you’re up to soon. I do write book reviews, and publish them on many different websites.

Just finished reading Romancing the Bride and it was WONDERFUL! Something was constantly happening and I had trouble putting the book down! Please continue writing these types of stories!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I certainly endeavor to keep writing those kinds of stories. 🙂

Hi Melissa! I just finished reading Tied and True, and wondered where you arrived at the name of Mrs. Yandell for Calvin’s landlord. My maiden name is Yandell, and I was born and raised 90 miles Northwest of Kansas City, bit didn’t know if any Kansas City Yandell. Since it’s a unique name, I wondered where you got it.
I went to school/high school in Branson, MO, and a classmate’s name was Yandell.

Hi, Melissa. I always enjoy your Inspirational Historical Fiction newsletters. I was wondering where I can find the January and February book cover winners. Also, can we vote more than once for our favorite cover for the month? Thanks a lot.
Sharon, I think once you submit your answers I think there’s a link that says “See previous responses” at the bottom of the box after you submit, and if you bookmark that link, I believe you can go back that way to see the results.
Here’s the link to the first one for Jan/Feb:
And the current one for March:
Please vote only once! I have to throw out duplicates, so it doesn’t help. 🙂

Hi Melissa, I love all your books and I’m always waiting for the next one to come out. I just finished reading Depending on You. Do you have any plans to write a book about Gwen McGill and/or Jennie? In Pretending to Wed you hinted that Timothy was secretly in love with her. So I would love a story about those two!
I do! Gwen is next, and when I mean next, like she’ll be out on the internet really quickly! Maybe in a few days. If you’re an ebook reader/buyer I’d highly recommend being on my newsletter list because I’ll be doing something special with her book before it’s out and about for the holidays! I’m glad you’re enjoying the series!

I borrowed your book from my online library(Bride in Store) and was unable to download it through Amazon kindle. So I then bought the book from Amazon and it still would not download. So I called customer service and after following all of their directions and an hour later I still cannot download the book. When I tried to buy it again, the message “you purchased this book. So I went back to my Library and now am 15 in line on hold. Could it be something with the book from your end. I’ve your books and thank you for addressing this problem.
No, it wouldn’t be anything from my end since I have nothing to do with the distributors. If Amazon said you bought the book and it’s not downloading, there may be something going haywire with your kindle? Did customer service tell you how to hard power off your kindle? I know that with my kindle, when it’s not acting right, if I hold the power button for like a minute, it will cause a rebooting screen to come up and it will reboot. I have to wait like half an hour for it all to reset itself and have to redownload things, but when my kindle’s been acting weird that almost always fixes the problem.
Margaret Wagner says
Hi, I just finished A heart most certain and felt compelled to tell you how profoundly touched I was by this book
It has challenged me to look at my relationship with God and look closer at my motives. Some books have done this before but none to this extent. This is the first book I have read of yours and I am disappointed that I won’t be able to finish the series as the remainder is not under Kindle unlimited.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and beliefs. I will carry these with me.
Thank you for sharing with me, Margaret. I am certainly humbled to know this book is being used to exhort and challenge, may God spur you on to greater things. Plus, don’t give up on your local library. If they don’t have the remaining books in this series already on the shelves, every library has a way to request that they purchase books you’re interested in, that’s always a good way to try. If you live too far away to get to your local library, try requesting they carry it in whatever way they lend out ebooks so you can have them simply downloaded onto your kindle/kindle app. It’s pretty easy to borrow an ebook from the library, easier than I thought it’d be, so you can try that.
Jean Nadler says
Melissa, I just finished reading #3 in Unexpected Bride series. I love your writings. Every twist and turn in the stories keeps me wanting more. I hate to put the story away each time I open it up. When I open it up, I want to read it to the end but then my housework would not get down. I like especially how your story lines are clean romance and so real to life of our day. Please, how about contuing the Unexpected Bride series
Thanks for coming here to tell me you enjoyed the story, Jean! There is one other novella about Rachel’s brother that should be out this coming fall. I’m starting a new series too that is very similar to the Unexpected Brides so I hope you’ll enjoy that. If you’re not on my newsletter list, please sign up so you can know when both of those come out!

I was blessed to receive an advance copy of A Chance at Forever from NetGalley and have posted my review on NetGalley and on my blog, http://www.christiannovelreview.blogspot.com.
Thank you for your review, Sue.

Hello! I was wondering if there are any future plans to make audio book versions of the Teaville Moral Society books? My mother, sister, and I all love them and were hoping to be able to listen to them on our road trip in February. I have done some searching for them, but haven’ found anything, so I thought I would pop in and see if they already exist hidden somewhere, or if (hopefully) there are future plans for them? Thank you for your time and the worlds you create!
Hey, thanks for contacting me and the lovely words! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed them and I hope you have a great trip in Feb. The paperwork for these books and the audio company got mixed up somehow. You can get the audio book for A Chance at Forever already, it’s out: https://www.amazon.com/A-Chance-at-Forever/dp/B07BBVBSKW But I JUST got information 7 days ago that they finally signed the contract for making Book #2, A Love So True, into audio, and we STILL haven’t gotten the paperwork for A Heart Most Certain, though I’m pretty sure they intend to, I mean, why would you just do book #2-3 without book #1? But it’s been in a hold up since 2016 so I can’t promise when. I think it takes about 5 months to produce and get it out, at least for A Chance at Forever it was 5 months from when they said they bought the rights to when it came out. So I’m guessing that A Love so True could be out in January if they do the same time frame. But unless they get their paperwork together real quick, I’m not so sure about A Heart Most Certain.
Jan Gerber says
Hi, Melissa! My name is Jan Gerber and I was so excited to read a Christian book written by an author from Kansas. I read ‘A Chance at Forever’ and thoroughly enjoyed the well written story. I grew up in Dodge City, KS, and both my children were born at Wesley in Wichita,. I noticed your mailing address was in Wichita and I wondered if that is where you live, too. Anyway, this is the first book and I plan to read more of your writings!
Hey, Jan! Yes, I currently live in Wichita. If you live in the area, sometimes I do events around here like book signings and you can come visit me. I’m glad to hear you want to keep reading, I hope you continue enjoying them!
Oh, forgot, if you want to hear about those events I’m at, the best place to do so is my newsletter or Facebook page!

When I married my husband two months ago, his mother had already gone home to be with Jesus. He bought his parents home and when I moved in, his mother had a collection of about 30 Christion Fiction books and yours was one of them! I started reading “A Bride in Store” last weekend and I just finished it. I had not heard of you, but I can tell you I very much enjoyed the novel. I had picked up “With All My Heart” some months ago and just saw that it has one of your novella’s in it so I look forward to reading that story! Thank you for using your God given talent to write so that people like me can be transported back in time. I really like reading books set in the 1800’s.
Staci, so fun to hear you found a book of mine in your new house. When I was house hunting and people were still living in the houses, I couldn’t keep from checking out their bookshelves. Never found one of my books, but sometimes I found some of my friends’ books on their nightstands and it made me smile. I love the 1800s too! I could probably write forever in that space of time. Hope you enjoy Love by the Letter! If you ever want an autographed copy of a book, if you sign up for my newsletter, you get free shipping on books bought directly from me which I can scribble on for you if you like. 🙂
