SPECIAL FEATURE :: Melissa Foster :: Author Bio

Under "Special Feature" every month I will feature a special Author (who can choose to promote a single book or more). During this month I will put up 4/5 posts about the Author/Book, including Interview / Review / Excerpt / Guest Post / Author Bio / Fun Facts or whatever else we can come up with. Also on the first day of the month we will  launch the Giveaway contest along with the first post and will announce the winner on the last day of the month.
