This is an exciting day for my creator, Melanie. In about an hour, she’ll be guest blogging at Savvy Authors talking about research. It should be good. When it comes to researching for her book(s), Melanie is fab. I’m not sure I would be so diligent.
Then this afternoon at 1:00 pm, she’ll be signing copies of A Shadow in the Past at her local independent book shop – Leeds County Books, 73 King Street West, Brockville, ON.
Here’s what folks are saying about Melanie’s debut novel…
I loved this Scottish time-slip novel. A great story expertly told.
Ms. Robertson-King has a gift for capturing dialogue that is familiar to today’s audience while remaining true to historical details that enrich her stories.
Great book and a very pro-active publisher!
A Shadow in the Past is a period drama/time travel combined with romance. The author’s research into life in Victorian Scotland, alongside her study of the horrors of being incarcerated in an asylum, is exceptional. The book is a must-read for me.
A Shadow of the Past brought a unique new voice to time travel.
A Shadow in the Past is an amazing story and the way author has described it, it’s really fantastic. When you read the book, you feel as if all this is happening right in front of you!
Fabulous book! A lovely adventure full of surprises!
Awesome book can’t wait for the sequel.
Fantastic book set in my home country. Well written and easy to follow and read.
And what a great story developed.
A charming time-slip love story with vivid description and authenticity throughout!
A great first novel and I will look forward to reading more books by Melanie Robertson-King in the future.
Doesn’t this make you just want to read it? And sequel? Wow! Even better. I have inside information on book 2 in the series but have been sworn to secrecy.
If you live close to Brockville, the sun is shining (yesterday’s horrendous snowstorm has passed), why not head down to the high street and get a copy of A Shadow in the Past.
And if you can’t get to Brockville, you can buy it from…

I can tell you the title of book 2 but that’s it. You’ll have to let your imagination conjure up what’s going to happen. Are you ready? Book 2 is going to be… drum roll, please… Shadows from her Past! Isn’t that a fab title?
