indie author: melanie ever moore

I’m Melanie Ever Moore, author of Hope Quest book 1: Blackbird & Hope Quest book 2: The Lightning and two collections of poetry and dance photography, Elegant Execution  & The Stars Went Out.

I am an avid reader and supporter of indie writers and their books, hence my side gig, indie inked, a resource and support (and soon, book editing service) for indies!  On the indie inked blog, you will find great resources for indies, as well as book reviews, features, and interviews with indie authors. 

Currently, I am based in northern Alberta, Canada (but tend to move a lot), where I live with my husband and our three beautiful kids who inspire my creativity in a myriad of ways!  I have spent the last ten years self-employed as a newborn and children’s photographer and my photography, poems, and short stories have been published in newspapers and literary magazines across Canada, the US, and Australia.  Most recently, my dance photography appeared in The Broken Plate magazine out of Indiana in the fall 2020 edition.

Currently, I have a few writing projects in the works: the final installment of my Hope Quest trilogy,  a new YA book, My Remains, and, Shoot Me, a non-fiction book about my ten years in the photography industry.

Follow my blog (better yet, sign up for my newsletter!) to stay up to date with my writings and all of indie inked’s cool happenings.
