“In His Thrall” new Carnal Paranormal Vampire Erotica eBook released today at NCP!

Cover art for In His Thrall by Alex DeShanks

This is a very hectic time for me right now, school wise, as I race to the finish to complete my Bachelor of Nursing program — but not SO busy that I would forget to post about my new release at New Concepts Publishing http://www.newconceptspublishing.com

This week, they have posted my carnal paranormal vampire erotica, “In His Thrall”, featuring the masterless (or perhaps not so masterless) vampire Sherisse and the half-demon mind reader who possesses her with a single touch.

The book blurb reads: “At a party thrown by one of her ongoing romantic entanglements, a chance encounter with a half-demon has unexpected results for Sherisse. Fascinated by the beauty of the vampire before him, Carlos cannot entirely contain his interest in Sherrise – he accidentally possesses her when they touch and their minds become inexplicably linked. Sherisse hasn’t had a Master in nearly a century – and she refuses to be bound to anyone for any reason! Fate, however, has something else in store for her…

As the night goes on and her situation becomes more concrete, Sherisse can’t deny her attraction to Carlos and the promise of hot-blooded passion within him. Whatever are they going to do about the animal attraction between them? Especially now that they are privy to each others’ innermost thoughts and desires?

Furthermore, when will the possession wear off?”

If you enjoy your blood suckers drop dead sexy and your half-demons hot enough to melt your hard drive, then this may be a tale for you!

This story is a little graphic in places, so buyers beware!

I genuinely hope that you enjoy the naughty little erotica adventure that I’ve written for you!

Sincere regards and happy reading,

Amanda M. Holt

Hello, readers!

According to their website at http://www.newconceptspublishing.com , my eBook publisher New Concepts Publishing is experiencing a delay in their releases this week due to “a death in the family”.

Accordingly, the release of my paranormal romance/erotica “In His Thrall” has been postponed.

I will be sure to post when it is released.

In the meanwhile, my heartfelt condolences to the NCP family and their loved ones……

Sincere regards,

Spicy New Erotica Release by NCP!!!

February 15, 2010 at 9:02 pm (Grumble, Literary blunders..., New Concepts Publishing Releases, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Cover art by Alex DeShanks

Hello again, people!

Today I advertise “An Unusual Encounter of the Rock Star Kind”, a contemporary paranormal romance novella, the blurb for which reads as follows:

“A chance encounter with the lead singer of a rock band leaves Cassandra rapt with anticipation. Les is everything that the young nurse has ever dreamed of – and the sexy drummer from Boston is even hotter up close in person! He is apologetic for accidentally knocking her to the frozen Winnipeg sidewalk, yet she barely feels the ice and snow with all the heat that is rushing through her core.

Cassandra wonders if his invitation to supper is as innocent as it seems. Is it his way of saying ‘sorry’, or the beginning of something more? She finds herself wondering: just how far is this encounter going to go?

More than that, she wonders: what will be for dessert?”

Rating: SPICY-Graphic language, one sex scene.

Genre: Contemporary Paranormal Romance.

This little novella has been a point of contention between myself and my editor at New Concepts Publishing. I felt that the tale should be told in present tense, first person. They felt that it was fine in its original version, of mixed present tense and past tense, as they felt that a story must be told in past tense, not moment by moment.

I wrote this piece entirely as a writing exercise, to flex my nubulous literary muscles (read: amateur finger flexes, ten thousand word repetitions). I wanted to test the waters, to try different tenses and see what the end result would be.

The end product? A product that my editors seemed thrilled with (thrilled enough to publish), but something that I feel is a touch awkward in its current state.

I guess the only way I’ll know for sure whether “An Unusual Encounter of the Rock Star Kind” is a hit or a miss is through book sales and love or hate mail as a direct result of that audience…

Either way, whether it sinks or swims, I welcome your critique, comments, and constructive criticism on the latter.

You can always email me at holt_writer@hotmail.com

My sincere thanks for your support and interest!

p.s. – cover artist is Alex DeShanks, who always does a lovely job!

Paranormal Vampire Erotica due out March 3rd from NCP, also…

January 16, 2010 at 3:33 am (New Concepts Publishing Releases, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

There are two things I’d like to briefly touch on today.

Item A: My publisher, NCP (www.newconceptspublishing.com)  is slated to release my paranormal vampire erotica “In His Thrall” on March 3rd.  This novella, like a few of the others that I have written for them, is rated CARNAL, so consider yourself fair warned 🙂

Item B: One of my editors from my other publisher (Extasy Books) somehow got the erroneous impression that I have Book 5 of my Reaper Series ready for her to edit.  I’m not sure how or why my editor came to this conclusion, but for any Reaper fans who might be wondering when the next installment of the Reaper Series will be out, I’m afraid I only have this to offer: it’s coming, just not any time soon.

You see, I am in the second semester of my fourth year of my Bachelor of Nursing program, which is turning out to be a little more time-consuming than I had originally thought.  I don’t have the time or energy to commit to finishing a project like Reaper 5 by a certain deadline, I’m sorry to say.  Not right now.  I will have time, here and there, to do creative writing — I always find time for that — but it’s a matter of a few thousand words every so often on assorted projects, not a matter of pouring 80,000 – 100,000 words into a single project with that as the focus of your efforts!  My Reaper Series is dear to my heart and takes a certain mind set to write (blood and sex and violence…a Nephalim [angel-human hybrid for those of you who didn’t know] doing Heaven’s dirty work, yes you have to be on a certain wavelength to write THAT kind of stuff).  I am not of (or in) that mind set at the current time.

So there you have it!  Two new developments in my colorful little world!

Sincere regards,

Amanda M. Holt

p.s. – I can’t wait until the Red Cross sets up a donation system here in Canada like the one in the US.  For those of you who didn’t already know, in the USA you can donate $10 to the Red Cross to go directly to the aid of the Haitian people by texting HAITI to 90999.

New erotica title expected to be released February 3rd!!!

January 15, 2010 at 6:12 am (New Concepts Publishing Releases) (, , , , , , )

Hello readers!

Tonight I ventured on over the New Concepts Publishing’s website to see if they have worked out any release dates for the two erotica novellas I have contracted with them.  To my delight I saw that “An Unusual Encounter of the Rock Star Kind” has been slated for release February 3rd, if their upcoming release website is anything to go by.

Their website at www.newconceptspublishing.com is under construction at the moment – furthermore, they have been wrong before when it comes to the exact release date for a novel, but I am nevertheless excited to see another one of my tales in print!

Additionally, I am really excited to see what kind of cover artwork they have come up with!  NCP has these two really talented cover artists who work for them, Eliza Black (who did the cover for my vampire erotica “Of Crimson Blood and Ivory Skin”) and Alex DeShanks (who did the covers for my stories “Guarding Miranda” and I believe the cover for my werewolf erotica “Blood Song: The Captive”).

If my luck is holding, one of those talents has done (or is doing) the cover.

Now I have a full school day planned for tomorrow (I’m a Fourth-Year Bachelor of Nursing student in the real world), so I’d best be off to bed.

Thanks for reading!

Sincere regards,

Amanda M. Holt
