I’m thrilled to be organizing a Cover Reveal and Early Review Blog Tour for MELT by Selene Castrovilla! MELT is a powerful, raw, heart-wrenching story that kept me up late into the the night.

MELT is a brutal love story set against the metaphorical backdrop of The Wizard of Oz (not a retelling). When sixteen year old Dorothy moves to the small town of Highland Park, she meets, and falls for Joey – a “bad boy” who tells no one about the catastrophic domestic violence he witnesses at home. Can these two lovers survive peer pressure, Joey’s reputation, and his alcoholism?
Told in dual first person, Joey’s words are scattered on the page – reflecting his broken state. Dorothy is the voice of reason – until something so shattering happens that she, too, may lose her grip. Can their love endure, or will it melt away?
MELT is based on true events. It is both a chilling tale of abuse, and a timeless romance. It will hit you like a punch in the face, and also seep through the cracks in your soul.
Beautiful, painful, and ultimately healing, Melt is a gripping read that will make you feel and care about the characters.
– Cheryl Rainfield, award-winning author of SCARS and STAINED
MELT’s cover will be revealed on May 5, 2014, and we’d love to have you help get the word out! This reveal includes a giveaway, and is open to everyone. If you don’t have a blog, no worries, you can share it on Facebook or Pinterest, just provide a link to where you plan to post! Please pass this invitation along to anyone you think may be interested.
An Early Review Blog Tour for MELT is scheduled June 16th-29th. The tour will consist of reviews only and include a tour wide giveaway!
Last month, a call went out for early reviewers for MELT… thank you to all that signed up, we had a wonderful response! However, we thought it’d be more fun to organize it into an “Early Review Tour” and have it include a giveaway. We hope your reviews will get more traffic and exposure this way. If you signed up to be an early reviewer for MELT, please sign up again for this tour (mainly so you can select tour stop dates). Sorry for the inconvenience!
