Formatting, formatting, formatting…and re-submitting!

April 26, 2012 at 1:46 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So….

……..I’ve spent the better part of this morning formatting and editing files for Smashwords and Kindle.

I’m going to be uploading new versions of Shades of Grey: Prologue and Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil to Kindle (I kinda made a few MINOR changes to the tail-end of SoG:HNE — nothing too significant, just some expansion to the Witigo discovery).

AND AND AND — Her Man, The Deal, Getting Lucky I: Pedro & Eddie, Shades of Grey: Prologue and Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil SHOULD be available on Smashwords in the next 72 hours or so!!!

Provided I meet their standards and all that!

Previously, these titles were only available on Kindle.

Anyway, I must return to said tasks…

Sincere regards and happy reading!

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!

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
