From Publishing House to Self VELLA DAY

Hey y'all!
I've been swirling around ideas in my small little brain on how I want to "do" my blog and what exactly I want to portray.  I'm still not 100% there, so please hang in there with me.

Today, I've decided to "spotlight" an author that I've come to admire.  I started reading her books when she was being published from Siren Publishing, and now I am reading her books that she is Self-Publishing.  I'm sure many of you know exactly who I'm talking about!

She answers to VELLA DAY now and has 6 Self-Published books, but she also has over 40 books as MELODY SNOW MONROE.  No matter who you call her, she is an amazingly talented author.  I've been very lucky to personally meet her and actually "hang out" with her.  I met her this past March in Atlanta at The Novel Experience Event (TNEE).  If you haven't heard of this yet...just wait...I'm sure that Stella Price will continue to make this event a household name in the book world.  Vella was the first author I met in real life and I went all FANGIRL over her!  I was of course a friend of hers on Facebook but meeting her in person was surreal!  She is one of the sweetest, friendliest ladies that I have ever met.  My friend Lin and I were invited to have dinner with her and Olivia Jaymes.  (Can I say we had a squealing OMG OMG OMG OMG moment?)  Oh...and if you are chatting with her on FB, or in real sure and ask her about our visit to the Aquarium in Atlanta and her's and Lin's "experience"  ROFLMAO!!!!!

Lin, Vella Day and EVIL Tammy
I was also lucky to catch up with her AGAIN...(yes...FANGIRLED all over again) at RT in NOLA!  This time...I even dragged her poor husband into it!  Bless him!  I'm sure he thought that a crazed fan had attacked.  One minute he was standing there, talking to his wife, and a few other authors and their spouses...the next, this wild woman was hugging him like crazy!  *LMAO*
Author Morgan Ashbury, EVIL (fangirling) Tammy, Vella Day
Vella has just been interviewed by Linda Bond, a 12 time Emmy winner for a major TV news show in Tampa and I have it HERE! 

Isn't she just AWESOME????  *sigh*  Ok...enough fangirling!  LOL

Here is the important stuff!  HER BOOKS and how you can get them!


I'm also going to give y'all all of her websites including her MELODY SNOW MONROE sites because those books are scrumptious too!  Just because she's writing under a new name and self publishing, I don't want you to miss out on those!!!
I hope y'all have enjoyed getting to know Vella a little bit and will grab one of her books. ask?  That's because I know ONE is all it will take to make you a Vella Day fan like me!  But don't forget...she's got oodles and oodles of hot, scrumptious books under Melody Snow Monroe too, so just pick one of either name and I guarantee...YOU WILL BE HOOKED!
