  1. Hi Melanie, we were hoping to connect with you! We’re crowd funding a martial arts web series about a young girl, Black Kungfu Chick, and wanted to see if you would help promote on your sites. Please contact me. Rae


    • Hi Rae! Sorry for the late reply. I’ve been out of town all weekend. I’ll get in touch….well, I’m having a hard time contacting you through WordPress. Please email the mdgwrites address listed at the top of the Contact Me page. I’d love to learn more about your project.


  2. Melanie,
    I was computer browsing and found your blog. So Glad to see you are successful and you do write very well. I shouldn’t be surprised about your writing skill and artistry! Life is good if not great here. I am retired, have a whole new life with lots of guy friends to play golf, pickle-ball, bike riding, walking, drinking coffee etc. as well as a great family and grandchildren. Since I am a wimp I would never consider your sport and I’m not sure I would want to meet you in a tournament situation and wind up on my derriere! Take care and keep writing ! Your Blog is fantastic and I’m certain your book will be great.
