Melanie Faith’s  craft book about how to write flash fiction and nonfiction, entitled In a Flash! was published in April 2018 , and a craft book for poets, Poetry Power, was published in late October 2018 (also by Vine Leaves Press). 

Her historical poetry collection, This Passing Fever, set in 1918's influenza epidemic, was published by FutureCycle press in early September 2017. 

Her Jane-Austen style Regency novella was also published in September 2017 by Uncial Press and RONE-award nominated. Her writing has been nominated for three Pushcart Prizes.

She is currently working on a book for photographers, in addition to new poems and photos. Melanie collects quotes, books, and twinkly costume-jewelry pins, and she enjoys spending time with her darling nieces. 

In 2019, she is teaching a poetry-writing class, a flash-writing class, a poetry marketing and publication class, and a workshop she created that combines two of her passions, called Photography for Writers.
