Melissa F. Olson’s “Boundary Crossed” Release Day & Giveaways!

Today is the Release Day for Melissa F. Olson’s Boundary Crossed (Boundary Magic Book 1) which is already selling like a hotcake in the supernatural castles on Amazon. I’ve read some of Melissa’s work and she is a spot-on-instinctive, witty writer and one heck of a gal to boot. Take the time to meet her briefly here below, learn about her book and enter her contests to win some exceptionally cool swag which includes Melissa’s book/stuff and also book/stuff from authors Amber Lynn Natusch and Denise Grover Swank.

Boundary-Crossed-Cover-200x300Melissa: Thank you so much to Richard for being part of this multi-webpage blog blast. If you’ve already heard of me and my books, you can scroll down to go straight to the contest entry. Otherwise, please let me introduce myself.

My name is Melissa F. Olson, and I mostly write urban fantasy novels, which are stories about the intersection of two worlds: the real one that we live in and a world that involves something supernatural: fairies, vampires, werewolves, mutant killer hedgehogs, or all of the above. My new novel Boundary Crossed is about a young woman, Lex, trying to protect her baby niece from bad guys who have discovered that the baby has serious value on the supernatural black market. Lex is determined to keep her safe, but unfortunately she dies at the end of the first chapter.

No, seriously. She dies. But then she gets better, because it turns out that there’s more to Lex than she ever knew. She needs to figure out why she’s still alive and what the bad guys want with her niece, and she’s going to need a lot of help to do it.

The book has been available all month as a Kindle First deal on Amazon, but it comes out in paperback and audiobook for the first time today. To celebrate this release, I’m giving away signed books, a $20 Amazon gift card, and some killer swag. (That’s a metaphor; the swag will not hurt you.) To enter, just click on the Rafflecopter button below, and enter up to four times for the four prizes. Thanks for reading!


Melissa SwagYou can also read the FIRST CHAPTER of Boundary Crossed.

Melissa Olson was born and raised in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and studied film and literature at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. After graduation, and a brief stint bouncing around the Hollywood studio system, Melissa landed in Madison, WI, where she eventually acquired a master’s degree from UW-Milwaukee, a husband, a mortgage, a teaching gig, two kids, and two comically oversized dogs, not at all in that order. She loves Madison, but still dreams of the food in LA. Literally. There are dreams. Learn more about Melissa, her work, and her dog at

Some early raves for Boundary Crossed:

“A bold new heroine makes her action-packed debut in this exciting new paranormal series. A fun, fast, and furious read!”          
–Jack Horn, author of the Witching Savannah series

“Fun and interesting characters, a brilliant new heroine, and a plot that will have you gripped until the very end. The start of an excellent series.”  
–Steve McHugh, author of the Hellequin Chronicles
