So Friday the 13th is coming up and I thought this was a perfect time to launch my new book, Fleischerhaus, which is my 13th book. This is my 12th novel, plus I have that 1 non-fiction that keeps rising to the top of the heap, but I will always be, first and foremost, a novelist. The stories just keep knocking on my brain and the only way to deal with them is to write them down.
Fleischerhaus is a story based on reincarnation and past lives (like Queen's Gold) but instead of involving ancient history, it revolves around very recent history: the Holocaust. Here's the blurb:
Julia Martin, newly-divorced but still reeling from her husband’s infidelity, takes a much needed vacation to visit old college friends in Germany. While touring a little-known concentration camp and museum, she spontaneously experiences a violent past life memory of being murdered in this very camp during the Holocaust. Efforts to understand her memories only lead to more questions, the largest being: is her killer still alive? Supported by her friends and comforted in the arms of a handsome doctor, Julia attempts to uncover the mysteries of her past life and find justice for the person she used to be.
As with most of my books, I have a hard time pigeon-holing them in the typical genre classifications. This one seems to range over multiple genres, from paranormal to mystery to romance to suspense. It certainly has elements of all of those. And it's already getting some great reviews:
Thoroughly enjoyed this book...immediately caught my interest, and I couldn't put it down!! -- TRB
This is a just another one of Melissa's great writings. ...One can feel the reality in it. She never gives any clue to the way it will end right up to that end, making it an excellent read. -- LP
I hope if it sounds interesting that you'll take a look. I'm happy to have my lucky # 13 take its place beside all my other books!
