It is for the above reasons that Mel Comley managed to capture the attention of a high profiling agent who found it hard to assume her sales figures consequently making the decision to jump in and assist her even grow her brand more. It is equally worth noting that Ms Comley decided to give up her job in the retail sector more than a decade ago to venture into writing and particularly focus on her work in the wake of a harrowing divorce. This is the reason why she moved to France to stay with her mother in a country which she had never even visited before.

She admits that it is was very hard starting off since she could not tell whether or not her work was good enough or which niche befitted her best.
She started out writing romances from which she got rather impressive responses from mills and boon. Shortly after, having gained enough confidence from her previous work and the feedback it attracted, she opted to challenge herself by trying out something new. She decided to venture into the writing of Thrillers.
Soon after making the switch, she uploaded her first crime novel dubbed “impending justice” onto the wannabe writer site: Authonomy. She then wedged a fierce campaign, spending several hours each day in front of her computer all in a bid to get her work feature in top charts as well as under the gaze of Harper Collins. Mel worked tirelessly to make her story (a British female cop chasing a murderer, featuring kidnap and touching on human trafficking) recognized in the manner in which she wanted and it worked, her work started enjoying the much sort after attention.

After all, she is equally in complete agreement that the brain is a muscle which requires regular exercise for it to work best.

Though she writes daily, she has a bad habit of procrastinating too much after which she finds it very challenging to get back onto the driver’s seat.
