By the way - P!NK has also proved to be awesome inspiration for Allie ;-)

Hi Jaodee - Thank you so much - your note just made my day :-)

My books actually ARE published in paperback and are in bookstores, but not every store has them on the shelf. You should be able to ask for it at the counter and have them order a book if they don't keep it in stock.
Unfortunately, most stores like to carry 20 copies of all the latest bestsellers by well-known authors, and it doesn't leave a lot of shelf space for little Indie Authors like me. I would love if my readers went into stores and suggested that they carry my books, even if they aren't ordering one at the time - "I can't believe you don't have the ALMOST HUMAN series by Melanie Nowak, you should carry them, they're great!" LOL.

I checked out the DEV video and can see why it reminds you of Allie ;-)
She started out as a sideline character, but then stood up, stole my attention from the characters I was focusing on and said "Write about me!!! I wanna have fun. I've got stuff to do - it'll be great, you'll see!" Sounds just like her, doesn't it?

I think (hope) you'll really like the next book. Allie has some pretty cool and intense scenes in it. D4D is coming along great - I know it has been a ridiculously long time, but I hope to have it out before summer. Thank you for having the patience and dedication to stay with me since the beginning and follow the story. I know it has been way too long in between books, but I'm so glad you're enjoying them.

Thank you for reading and helping to spread the venom addiction in Australia!

~ Melanie

Just want to say Melanie that you are a fantastic writer. Keep doing what you do and hurry up with the next book!! :) sorry I just cannot wait to read it. Your work is absolutely the best and with each new book you publish you just get better and better! I have followed your books since you first started writing them and I love them. If only you could live forever and keep writing more :)
My favourite character is definately Allie :) you capture her amazing spirit through your words and it makes me really feel I know her. :) I know you like to add a soundtrack to your writing so I think that the song In The Dark by DEV really captures her. I don't know why but when I heard it it reminded me of Allie... weird huh? Hehe
But on a serious note you are amazing and would love if you could finally get published hardbacks for stores. I am ALWAYS keeping an eye out at the bookstores.
Your # 1 fan from Australia xx

I have been devastated MANY times over things haven't eventuated how I foreseen/hoped/wanted things to happen between Felicity and Cain!! I REALLY think Felicity would make a KICK ASS vamp like Allie!!
(but the baby now?)
I can imagine her being a super vamp like Allie, BUT a teacher/healer like Cain!!
with TWO different coloured eyes! really really think they are destined


Hi Chloe,

Sorry to hear you were devastated - but glad you are so invested in the series! I think half the fun of reading a new story is that you don't always know where things will go!

I hope you enjoy the story, and don't worry, I don't plan to have Felicity be a weak heroine - I hope for each of my ladies to be kick-ass in their own ways ;-)

Thanks for reading!

Hi Melanie. Amazing series, I love it. I was wondering why don't we ever see things from Ben's point of view? It'll be interesting if we do and it will make things fair as we get to see things from other characters' point of view


Hi Alex!
Thanks for writing - I'm glad you're enjoying the series so far!
Concerning writing from different perspectives, in the first trilogy, there was a certain amount of information I did not wish readers to have 'first hand' yet, so we do not get to hear from Ben, Alyson and Sindy's points of view. However, in the second trilogy the storyline becomes a bit more complex, and the perspectives of the other characters are needed to let us in on more of the story. In Born to Blood (ALMOST HUMAN - the Second Trilogy - Volume 2), the story dictated that we get to see from the point of view of Cain, Felicity, Allie, Mattie & Sindy. then in volume 3 of the 2nd trilogy, Descendant of Darkness we get to hear from Ben, as well as Cain, Felicity, Allie & Sindy. I hope you'll continue with the series - I'm sure you'll like hearing from the other characters. I loved being able to write from their perspectives!
Thanks for reading!
