If I tell you the story, will you believe it?
Her father begins to warn Melinda James from the ‘Other Side’ about terrifying and unbelievable upcoming events. His death was no accident, like everyone assumed. But Melinda doesn’t take her father’s words to heart. Soon, her family members and friends begin to disappear, and all she’s left with is a ‘crazy’ story that none of the psychiatrists will believe.
As she journeys from one dangerous incident to the next, her dead best friend and family members try to help from the ‘Other Side.’ Will it be enough? Can dead people protect the living?
Does this ‘Other Side’ even exist? Will Melinda get her new doctor, Alex Leever, to finally believe her so she can be freed from the asylum? As portals open and close and a new ‘friend’ arrives on the scene, Melinda must find a way to understand that the voices speaking are sending a dire warning: that the killers from the past still exist and are beginning to get far too close for comfort.
I tried to tell them it was going to happen, but nobody would listen. They all said I was just having bad dreams, or that I was crazy.
It started at my father’s funeral. It’s been so long since it first began, about eight years ago. Sometimes though, it seems like yesterday. My father was there. No, I don’t mean just in the casket. He was there. He talked to me, begged me to tell Mom that we all needed to run and hide. He said we were all in danger.
I asked him why he didn’t tell Mom himself. He said he tried, but she wasn’t listening. I heard him fine. But I didn’t believe him. Why would we be in danger? We can’t just up and leave. My friends are all here in Beaumont. When I told him this, he said it was important, that it was a matter of life and death. He seemed so worried, but I was so confused, I blew him off.
I guess when it first happened I didn’t pay any heed to his warning. We went on with our lives. Mom was grief stricken, my brother Kyle was in his own world playing videos and I was trying to shut my father out of my mind. Was I going crazy? What was wrong with me? Dad was dead, but I could still see and hear him.

Rare Paranormal Thriller
“One of those rare paranormal thrillers that challenges as it entertains. Reina's wondrous, chilling tale is the best exploration of paranoia and insular terror since Ira Levin’s classic “Rosemary’s Baby.” Supremely crafted, masterfully crafted, and elegantly written, “The Other Side: Melinda’s Story” is a white-knuckled journey on the ride to hell.”
~ Jon Land, bestselling author of “Pandora's Temple”
“A gripping tale where nothing is as it seems. Reina gives us a brand new twist to consider on how the dead interact with the living. . . . What resides on “The Other Side” is not to be taken lightly.”
~ Aiden James, bestselling author of “The Judas Chronicles” and “Cades Cove”
Vivid, raw and Powerful
“Reina brings Melinda’s terrible tale to life with vivid, raw, and powerful emotions. She expertly keeps the reader clinging to the edge of the chair with only clenched fingernails, while the lifelike character hijacks the reader, dragging you into her tense, bitter, fearful, and longing world. As the suspense mounts, and you come to care for each character and layer your own suspicions and ideas one upon the other, until Reina brings the story to a triumphant confrontation with the supernatural. “The Other Side: Melinda’s Story” is either a disturbing standalone masterpiece or the start of an engaging new series delving into the thin barrier between our world and the land of the dead.”
~Kane Gilmour, bestselling author of “Ragnarok” and “Resurrect”
