Melanie Macek currently resides in Texas with her husband and their two Bombay cats, Murphy and Charlie. Travel is high on the list of favorite activities and states and countries are slowly being checked off the list of places to visit. A love of history has crept into her writing, so don't be surprised to see occasional historical factoids creep into her stories.
What is your writing process?
I write whenever I have time, wherever I have time. I probably could dedicate an hour every day to writing, but sometimes you just have to go out and live life. My stories are constantly in my mind so I don't think I'm ever really 'not' writing.
How do you approach cover design?
Most of the time, the covers come to me with the story idea. Once the basic idea is down, it's just tweaking the font and placement. The hardest part of cover design is coming up with the story description and a blurb for the front to grab a potential readers attention. I was very fortunate to find an artist whose easy to work with and local.
