The Edge of Darkness Blog Tour


After a tragic accident, Araya Noelle is left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.

She is forced to give up her chance to be the youngest dancer accepted into Julliard & taking over their high society school by a graceful storm of determination is no longer an option. Instead of dwelling over her loss, she accepts the new future she’s been dealt. In a world as black as hers, there's no room for bitterness, no time for regret. Sheltered from the outside world, Araya has become suffocated by a life she has no control over. Until Ryland Dare comes crashing into her life.

You don’t know true darkness until you've felt light…

Like a firecracker, showering her with colorful sparks of freedom, Ryland quickly sweeps Araya away from her grey existence. For the first time since the accident, living in darkness is no longer something Araya wants to do willingly. Unleashed by the shadows of her reminder, being with Ryland, Araya touches light. Together they will learn what it’s like to feel alive for the first time.

At the edge of darkness, a ray of light, will dare them both to HOPE.

DARE them to LOVE

DARE them to LIVE

Interview w/ Melissa Andrea~

TTP ~  Who or what inspired your passion for writing?

MA~ Sandra Brown. I am obsessed with her books and I love everyone of her stories!

TTP~ Where is your favorite place to write?
MA~ Couch or my office :))

TTP~ Where do you find inspiration?
MA~ In literally EVERYTHING LOL. Songs, quotes, commercials, anything.

TTP~ Do you develop each character prior to writing the book or do they flow naturally?
MA~ They reveal themselves as I'm writing. We grow together :))

TTP~ Do you have a favorite author?
MA~ Sandra Brown. Tabatha Vargo and I have a TON more!

TTP~ How do you balance work, home, life and personal time with your writing?
MA~ That's still a work in progress. I write between 8pm-3am in the morning and I am up again at 6am to get my daughter ready for school. I try to write on and off during the day, but with an 11mth old and a 5 yr old still at home, that doesn't work very often. Laundry, cleaning, cooking - those usually take a back seat when I am trying to finish a book, but my husband is amazing and usually picks up the slack for me. Finding that balance is important, but sometimes impossible.

TTP~ If you could give advice to someone who is wanting to write, what would you say? Where should they start?
MA~ Always believe in yourself! Don't be your own worst enemy! It's very easy to psych yourself out. So step back, read a book, eat some ice cream, watch a movie - do anything to relax your mind & then try again. Don't give yourself limitations, writers know no such thing.
TTP~ Do you have any quirky habits you do while writing? If so, what are they?
MA~ I act out my scenes haha. I'll mimic the gestures so my writing feels more real.

TTP~ If you could see your characters on the Big Screen what celebs would play what part?
MA~ That's a hard one, I think I would want fresh new faces!

Who is Melissa Andrea~

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try. 

I am the author of Flutter, The Discover Series! Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing.Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.

I was born in Denver, Colorado–but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.

4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink and things that sparkle (including vampires), I am a firm believer that chocolate cures ALL and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5) Okay, maybe I cheated a little with my list, shhhh.
