Giving Thanks for a New Release

Alice has a destiny. Her actions impact everyone: her friends, family, and the Bigfoot Village. Honestly, it’s too much, and under the pressure, something has to break…

It’s here. A Bigfoot’s Destiny is now available! The wait is over, and Alice’s series is complete.

I can’t begin to explain how proud I am of this story. This book became a love letter to myself. Questions of deserving affections, the challenges of self compassion, and the difficulty of differences rise again and again in Alice’s final adventure. Writing this was an emotional gauntlet, but I’m still here on the other side.

May you find strength from this story—I know I did while writing it.

With all my love,

Mel Braxton

Alice’s adventure is coming to an end

That’s right! A Bigfoot’s Destiny will be here soon. And upon its release, Alice’s Adventures as a shifting Bigfoot-human are finally come to an end.

This is a bittersweet release for me. Becoming Alice will be my first completed series—a goal I have worked toward since I was fourteen. I’ve fallen in love with Alice’s character, and I’ll be sad to stop writing for her. However, I also have amazing projects in the pipeline, and I know this series has already influenced what is coming next.

I’m sure you’ll notice that this book is being published under a different pen name, Mel Blooms. This is still me. To help readers navigate my work, I’ve separated Alice’s middle-grade series from my new-adult novels like Wing Builder and Wild Mermaid. Mel Braxton will remain my main pen name and all my communications will continue from here. Thanks for your continued support!

Until next time,
Mel Braxton

Since spring break, Alice has struggled with her new identity. She believes she is a monster, but there is no time for self-pity, not when the Bigfoot’s protective boundary is threatening to fail.

Meanwhile, Daylen prepares to pick a new Bigfoot suitor, Mark pressures Alice to tell him the truth, and Payton wants to be more involved, putting herself in danger.

Alice is already pushed to her limits when catastrophe strikes.

Forced into her truebody, Alice must accept her new identity. Completing this quest will require all her courage. It will test all of her relationships, even the one she has with herself.

Hopefully she can do this one thing right—the future of the Bigfoots depends on her.

long summer days and many written words

Hi there! I hope you’re eager for some updates, because here we go! A Bigfoot’s Destiny is in the works, and I have a new project taking shape, something that mixes my love of military scify and scify romance. More on both stories below!

First things first: A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped with the Wing Builder release! Thanks to those who dropped awesome reviews and helped me to spread the word. Your support makes my work possible.

Now for an update on A Bigfoot’s Destiny! This will be the third and final book in the Becoming Alice trilogy. In this final adventure, Alice must face the truth of who she is, a daunting task when her magical crystal breaks, shattering her ability to shift between Bigfoot and human. Alice must embrace her destiny or risk the exposure of the entire Bigfoot community.

I’ve also started work on a new story that I’m currently calling The Cadet. This story is inspired by my love of Star Trek—but with an extra emphasis on romantic elements. A little creepier than my other books, this story explores a romance between an adventurous cadet and an unexpected hero. With themes inspired by Beauty and the Beast and plot twists pulled from military scify, this story centers around a beast-to-lovers romance.

So be sure to stay tuned for release dates and cover reveals! A Bigfoot’s Destiny is on pace to be released this winter and I’ll also be launching a 3-in-1 edition of Becoming Alice that will feature a new, beautiful cover. (This cover art is already done, and it’s so hard for me to keep this under wraps! It’s fantastic!)

And that’s what’s going on here! I can’t wait for these stories to reach you.

Until next time,
Mel Braxton
