It’s always fun when something good happens to people you care about, and my pal Melodie Johnson Howe has not only launched the ebook publications of her award-winning mystery novels and a short story collection, but she’s the subject of a new promotional video too – all ahead of the summer publication of her latest mystery, City of Mirrors. The video went up on YouTube today and it’s totally worth a look. We get to see clips from Melodie’s career as a young Hollywood blonde co-starring with the likes of Clint Eastwood as well as her thoughts about being a mystery writer whose backdrop is Hollywood.
For those who want to write, say they want to write, dream of being able to write, Melodie is your role model. She walked out on show biz, studied the craft of writing and put in the time – all while raising a family. No excuses, people.
