Meet Mel C. Bell

Dr. Mel C. Bell is not your average university Dean. With a PhD in creative writing and the unique distinction of being a United States Army veteran, Mel now channels their leadership skills as the CEO of BDA Publishing.
When not navigating the academic world or steering a publishing house, Mel indulges in some rather eclectic hobbies: crafting Predator smut and western zombie romances, petting cows, ruling like a boss, and, of course, mastering the art of the perfect nap.
With a writing style that’s as lyrical as it is unconventional, Mel brings a fresh, unapologetic voice to the literary world, challenging conventions one sentence at a time.

Revenants (Revenants, #1)

When the world's fate hinges on a woman's heart, the battle lines between heaven and hell are drawn. In the crux of a war-ravaged frontier, Maddie's fate intertwines with that of a mysterious soldier, and she is thrown into a labyrinth of desire and deceit. Forced from her solitary cabin, she plunges into the lawless expanse of the wild, wild West—where her mettle will be tested in this untamed crucible. Maddie, a harbinger of defiance sculpted by the whimsical hands of destiny, embarks on a treacherous odyssey as she evades insatiable hordes of undead that trail her. Each reticent stride brings her nearer to a crossroads shrouded in secrecy, where horrifying revelations poised to either fortify or fracture her fragile grasp on existence skulk in the shadows. As the relentless waves of the undead surge forward, Maddie's plight becomes a battle, one not of the flesh but of the spirit against encroaching evil; a righteous campaign, echoing across the blighted frontier, has found its heart in Maddie’s valorous voyage. Will she find the strength to confront these terrors and unravel the mysteries that threaten her existence, or will she succumb to the insidious forces that conspire against her? As she stands on the precipice of existence, will she find the courage to confront her terrors, or will she be consumed by the darkness that threatens to swallow her whole?
