I am pleased to announce that my satellite-based tranquilizer gun is working and I have now been able to—um, persuade New Zealand based author Melissa Pearl to join the team here at Indies Unlimited.
Melissa is the author of the Time Spirit Trilogy, which includes Golden Blood, Black Blood, and Pure Blood. She was born in Auckland, New Zealand, but has spent much of her life abroad, living in countries such as Jordan, Cyprus and Pakistan… not to mention a nine month road trip around North America with her husband.
She is now relocating to China with her husband and two sons. She is a trained elementary teacher, but writing is her passion. Since becoming a full time mother she has had the opportunity to pursue this dream and her debut novel hit the internet in November, 2011. She loves learning about the craft of writing and endeavours to make each new book better than the last.
You can learn more about author Melissa Pearl and her writing at her blogs, Melissa Pearl and YALicious. You can also find her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter.
Please give a warm Indies Unlimited welcome to Melissa Pearl!

China! Wow! That will increase our footprint. Welcome.
Thanks, Yvonne. I'm a little nervous about the change, but I'm sure it will be a great adventure 🙂
Welcome, Melissa – I hope you're able to sit down. The EM's tranquillizer gun gets you right on target.
After my night with up and down little boys, I would relish a tranquilizer gun right now 🙂
Welcome Melissa! It's great to have a kiwi join IU. If ever you land in Melbourne come say g'day 🙂
I love Melbourne!! It's a very cool city 🙂 I'll make sure I look you up if I'm ever there again ;o)
Well dang! A Kiwi writer doing interesting stuff and you're heading off to China before I can meet you. Will follow your posts with interest. Good luck!
Thanks, Bev 🙂 What part of kiwi land are you in?
Welcome aboard, Melissa.
Thanks, David 🙂
Hey, welcome! I said that in my mind with gunslinger used car fingers, I don't know why.
Not in a creepy way, though, just the I know things about David Antribus you don't know way.
LOL. I misspelled your name, D. Owe lord help the editors. I haven't even been drinking.
It comes with the gunslinger-used-car-fingers territory.
Why are "o" and "i" next to each other on the keyboard anyway? Can lead to much confusion/hilarity when you describe a marksman friend as "a good shot."
Thanks guys… I think 🙂
No- very nice to feel so welcome 🙂
Welcoem or as we should maybe now say:
欢迎 (Huānyíng)pronounced Hwan Yeeng.
You boy! You at the back! What's your name? Pay attention! The "h" here is pronounced as "h" in English.
Now lets all practise saying welcome to Melissa in Chinese….all together now… 'Hwan Yeeng Melissa!'
Sorry about that Melissa. I periodically have flashbacks to my teaching days. It's okay. I'm over it now. A warm welcome to you. Very glad you are here.
'Hise! stop flicking pellets at Kat…'
Thanks Carol. You're fully freaking me out. I don't know if I'm smart enough to learn Chinese!!!
I guess I'll find out in August 🙂
Howdy, from the wilds of Kentucky.
And from the not-so-wilds of Tennessee. =)
LOL 🙂 Thanks!
Hiya, neighbour – I'm from Perth.
Nice. I'd love to head out the way sometime. I hear it's beautiful 🙂
Happy mother's day to you and all the other mom's reading this.
Thanks so much. I had a wonderful mother's day 🙂
Are you a mom too?
I hope you have a fantastic day. I really feel like we earn this one ;o)
