World First Collaborative Book & Music Event
In a successful world first collaboration in Singapore, Melissa partners with fiction novelist Tony Estrella to bring a new dimension to the traditional book talk event. Through music curated from the classical to modern cabaret repertoire, Melissa paints a soundscape to stir the imagination around characters, themes, and settings in the novel.
Stay tuned for upcoming virtual events as she brings these events to broader audiences with Tony Estrella's fiction novel Comatose.
About the novel:
Comatose follows the lives of four strangers who are trying to cheat death. On the surface, these people - a famous Hollywood director suffering from terminal brain cancer, a budding scientist in Artificial Intelligence whose honeymoon tragically ended with a freak plane accident, an angry orphan who lost her closest family to a tragic motorcycle accident, and the leading medical expert in treating comatose patients – appear to have nothing in common.
However, once they independently uncover a link between lucid dreaming and comas, their lives start to intersect. They uncover astounding opportunities to ease individual suffering and pain and ultimately careen forward into a life-threatening race for survival and supremacy against each other.
