I started putting up these postcards about EVER NEAR and EVER LOST around Nantucket on Thursday. This picture is of the Bean. It’s amazing how many businesses have bulletin boards along with maps and general information areas. I have already seen sales results, too. Bookworks sold out of EVER NEAR yesterday and online sales have picked up as well.

In release news, I spoke with my publisher yesterday. EVER LOST is done with proofreading and headed for formatting! This means BOOK 2 is just weeks away from publication, not months. I’ll be sure to let everyone know when it’s released, and I’ll get it to the bookstores on island as soon as the paperback is ready. Happy summer everyone!





NEARER STILL- A Companion Short Story

Nearer Still high res

If you loved Gram in EVER NEAR, check out my new short story titled Nearer Still. It features Winnie Ferguson as a teenager growing up in Baltimore. Here is the story description.

Expanding on the world of Melissa MacVicar’s debut novel EVER NEAR, this digital-only short story explores the background of Jade’s grandmother, Winnie Ferguson, growing up as a black teenager and a budding clairvoyant in the early 1960s.

When Stanley Irving gets arrested during a sit-in at a segregated lunch counter, he makes the front page of the Baltimore newspaper. Eighteen-year-old Winnie Ferguson’s father is furious with his daughter’s boyfriend and tries to break up the young couple. Will Winnie stand up to her father, or will the pair be ripped apart by the tension surrounding the Civil Rights movement?

You can purchase it on Kindle or any computer here.

Cover Reveal- EVER LOST Book 2 Secret Affinity

I am so excited to share this! EVER LOST Book 2 Secret Affinity is coming Summer 2014.

Ever Lost-Cover

Book Description:

New school, new town, new ghost.

Teenaged clairvoyant Jade Irving isn’t happy about being forced to attend snobby Layton Academy in Beverly, Massachusetts.  But when her father is transferred and she wins a full scholarship, her parents insist on ripping her away from her friends, her Nantucket home, and worst of all her boyfriend, Charlie.  Resigned to her fate, Jade at least looks forward to a year without ghosts.  But no sooner does she arrive at her new school than the spirit of former teacher David Avery begins to haunt her.

Dubbing the creepy specter “Drippy Dude” because of his soaking wet appearance, Jade quickly learns that he died under mysterious circumstances.  A budding friendship with hottie Mateo Fernandez complicates Jade’s efforts to put Drippy’s tormented spirit to rest.  Navigating her feelings for Mateo without betraying Charlie’s love is the biggest test of her life.  But hot boys and wet ghosts may be the least of her worries as Jade’s supernatural detective work places her in the crosshairs of a murderer.

Ever Near Author Copy

Love is ever near. But trouble is never far.

Nantucket Island is haunted, but only sixteen-year-old Jade Irving knows it. Ignoring the disturbing spirits isn’t an option, because one dwells in the enormous historic home she shares with her newly blended family. Jade is finding it more and more difficult to explain away Lacey’s ghostly, anguished tantrums, especially with Charlie, her gorgeous, almost step-brother, living right across the hall. When a power-hungry ghost hunter tracks down Jade and blackmails her, Jade’s secret teeters on the edge of exposure, and her entire future hangs in the balance. If anyone finds out Jade can talk to ghosts, her life will be forever changed. Can she save herself, free Lacey, and hang on to her tenuous connection with Charlie? Or will everything she ever wanted slip through her fingers?
