So this news may not be 100% bookish related but it is something we can all relate to…
I’m starting a new project!!
It’s been AGES since I’ve said those words and probably the same amount of time since I’ve been struck with inspiration to do something like this. I had a very long and much needed chat with my friend this morning (hi, friend *waves*) and he helped give me the kick in the butt I’ve been needing. You know when you’re in those moments of knowing what needs to be done but don’t wanna do it? Yep, that was me and he wasn’t putting up with it, thankfully. There was something he said in our chat that really struck a chord with me… “…because that is the person you are, not just the perfect script that you tell people about here and there.”
We all spend a portion of our time on social media and it’s an amazing thing but there is a flip side to what we see and experience. Imagine what the world would be like if we knew the person beyond the perfect glimpses of their lives that they show us? Would we be there when they cry? Would we love them when they feel lonely and answer their call when they feel lost? Or would we forever only want the beautifully curated photos and captions that make us think a “perfect” life is possible.
The new project is called “Perfect Glimpses.” I haven’t sorted out all the official details on what this project format will be but I do know the focus is going to be on people and how we see the world and what we want that world to be. I hope to bring a lot of people together to join in on this project and inspire people to be the best them they can be.
Here is where you come in….
I need your input on this idea and your thoughts. You can comment below, DM or comment me on Instagram, or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org your answers. I know sometimes these things can be personal so know you’re info stays confidential.
Tell me about your social media experiences…do you find yourself filled with envy looking at others perfectly put together videos, pics and posts? Do you find yourself spending more time than necessary to make your life appear better than it is? Do you find yourself feeling as though you aren’t really being true to yourself because you can’t just be real all the time?? If you could design your own social media app what would it be like??
If we’re going to talk about these things what are some topics or ideas you’d like to see featured?? Talk to me and let’s make something truly incredible!!!
I am SOOOOOOOO excited for my copy to arrive soon!! I cannot wait. In fact, I think I’ll buy the eBook in the meantime because I can’t wait to read this book. This series is one that has not only captured my heart for space travel & aliens, but it has captured my heart for the love Aelyx and Cara. This series will prove to all that love knows no boundaries and real love is stronger than space, distance, threats and ignorant people.
Please read below for a special message from the author, Melissa Landers, and details on an exclusive giveaway!!!! And if you haven’t picked up your copy of the book yet…DO IT!!!!! Continue reading
Roswell was a TV series that aired from 1999-2002. The concept revolved around aliens that had crashed in Roswell, New Mexico back in 1947 during what is known as “The Roswell Incident.” These aliens turned out to be hybrids (half human/half alien) and they were living among us.

To say that I was a fan of the show is putting it lightly. I loved the show and the books it was based on. And when the show was unexpectedly cancelled I was left with a void that nothing could seem to fill. This is my Roswell story and yes, it has much to do with writing and books, so don’t stop here…
