mem-gamblersfollyFor those of you who are not familiar with Ms. Jackson, she is the CEO, president, publisher, and an author at FreedomInk. (http://www.freedomink365.com)

I recently sent Gambler’s Folly to her for a review. It is being featured on FreedomInk’s Hidden Gems page this month.

After reading Gambler’s Folly, she had this to say:

“This book is smoking hot in an unexpected, underworld kinda way. I didn’t have to read several chapters in before I became totally engrossed. The Author’s engaging style captivated me before the 1st paragraph was done. Gambler’s Folly is a page turner, a bestseller, a literary Hidden Gem at its finest! I can’t wait to read the next book by Mellie Miller. “

Thank you Katandra Jackson!

So for those of you waiting until you had an objective opinion, go ahead. Go get your copy.  http://www.bookstrand.com/gamblers-folly

Damiano is waiting.

mem-gamblersfolly1One of the things people often asked is what inspired a particular book. Was it someone you knew or met? Is it a situation near to your heart? Or did it just jump in out of the blue?

Several of my ideas have come from dreams. They were interesting enough, but when they started repeating nearly every night, I decided it was time to write them down. I have no idea where they came from or why, but several books I have in the works began with dreams.

What about Gambler’s Folly? 

It was different. It was inspired by an old folk song. Does anyone out there remember the Kingston Trio? They recorded a version of the song South Coast which told the story of a man who won his wife in a card game.

Interesting idea, I thought. How could that possibly happen today?

Shortly after hearing this song, I got sidetracked onto the musical Paint Your Wagon, with Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood. In this story of prospectors and mining towns, Lee Marvin’s character buys his wife at auction, who he then shares with his partner because, well, they’re partners.

As I mused on these two themes, Gambler’s Folly began to come together.

It is the story of Karianna, lost on one hand of cards to Damiano Leone. He is the most powerful underworld syndicate leader on the planet named Gambler’s Folly.  As a pleasure paradise renowned for its gambling houses, there are contingencies for nearly any situation–including how to dissolve one marriage and form another one in just this sort of situation.

Sound interesting? Add in a few shape-shifters and a syndicate take-over bid for a little more fun.

Check it out! You can’t walk away and leave her married to a dark, powerful stranger, can you?

Black and white

Well, do you?

Picture a world which is a pleasure center. It offers anything you might want :  shopping, skiing, beaches, mountains, lakes, adventure, leisure–and gambling.

Picture a woman coming here with her husband, hoping they can put their marriage back together. Only to find his addiction for gambling has just landed her in a most dangerous situation.

Picture a tall, handsome, dangerous man in his late thirties. He has money, power, and rules most of the underworld syndicate on this world. Now he has something else he wants–the woman of his dreams.

The world is Gambler’s Folly.

The woman is Karianna, who’s husband lost her in a bid to wipe out his gambling debt to–

The underworld ruler, Damiano Leone, who’s word can save a man’s life, or sign his death warrant. Who’s dark side holds a secret most couldn’t even imagine.

CommercialWith Gambler’s Folly published, I’m working on Viviane: First Lady. Second draft is done, so I’m working with our daughter, Dawn,  to polish it up before sending it off.

I know they say never to ask friends and family, but Dawn is a godsend when it comes to editing. She says what she means and has some great input for changes.

So check back soon. I hope to send Viviane: First Lady to the publisher by the end of August.

In the meantime, go over to http://www.bookstrand.com/gamblers-folly and check out Gambler’s Folly. It’s still at a 10% discount through July 23.
