Tales From the Owner-Operator of the Boulevard Motor Hotel by Amanda M. Holt

So………..
…………..March 15th, eXtasy Books released my newest eBook, the 5-tale naughty novella titled “Tales From the Owner-Operator of the Boulevard Motor Hotel”.

This little novel (whose spice level builds tale by tale, chapter by chapter) is not for the faint of heart – especially not the final two tales featuring the heroine of the story and her victim (or is it, master?) the Bar Manager Louis!

Blurb:

“Brazen. Bold. Wanton. Hedonistic. Kayla North is all of these things, and more—much more. The sexy young owner of the Boulevard Motor Hotel takes advantage of her position to lure men and women alike. She discovers the pleasures of a customer, a new bartender, and her dependable bar manager in these, the first five Tales in the series.

Kayla’s brand of sex is no ordinary romp into the erotic—an encounter with her proves to be a walk on the wild side! From her bondage and domination of others to her own submission and ultimate humiliation, Kayla’s every desire is sure to be satisfied. And she expects nothing less…”

Whether you enjoy your fetish a little on the lighter side, sweetened with a little fem-fem spanking, or as an all out buffet of humiliation and the ultimate satisfaction, then Tales From the Owner-Operator of the Boulevard Motor Hotel might be the read for you!

As always, enjoy!

Sincere regards,

Amanda M. Holt

Will my post-apocalyptic erotica novella find a home?

February 2, 2010 at 1:51 am (Ellora's Cave updates..., Possible directions..., Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So……

………I have decided that I am going to query Ellora’s Cave books about my post-apocalyptic novella about Ana, the Amazon-like warrioress, her remote jungle home and the enigmatic fertility researcher who happens upon her exsquisite nude form as she is taking an afternoon swim after a long – and successful – hunt.

Wow. That was a mouthful. Try saying that really fast – you are guaranteed to run out of breath. My fabulous high school English teacher Mr. Ortwein once informed me in as gentle a manner possible that I am at times guilty of run-away (or run-on?) sentences like the one above. He did this in the cutest way: he drew a little run-away train going off the tracks saying “choo-choo” to give emphasis to his point.

Suffice to say, I remember this lesson well and as a result am now apologizing for the run-away train sentence you read, as well as any you may read in the future on this blog – or in my novels.

Back to the whole point of THIS post.

I am going to query Ellora’s Cave Books about Ana’s story (the title of which I soon have to decide on). It is an interracial/multi-racial sexy romp that I hope they will find delightfully intriguing. It is my hope that Ellora’s will pick up this title so that I can build a relationship and reputation with them for future work.

I am doing this not because I am entirely or largely dissatisfied with my other two publishers, Extasy Books and New Concepts Publishing, but because Ellora’s Cave seems to have a fabulous reputation, a large following/readership and will potentially offer greater exposure for moi, the amateur authoress Amanda M. Holt (or my chosen pen name).

Now, I pose this question to any who might listen and offer an opinion: should I query Ellora’s Cave with the suggestion that I publish Ana’s story under my own name – Amanda M. Holt – or publish Ana’s story under a pen name (such as Alexandra Gayle, the nom de plume that I am just ITCHING to use, as it is a combination of the names of both of my Godparents).

What to do, what to do?

Please advise.

Sincere regards,

Amanda M. Holt

p.s. – for those of you who don’t know what a query letter is, it can be best described as A) A query letter is a formal letter sent to magazine editors, literary agents and sometimes publishing houses or companies (Wikipedia definition) and B) A brief written presentation to an agent or editor designed to pitch both the writer and the book idea (definition from brochure-design.com )…C) a query letter basically asks if a publishing house would be interested in seeing your work (or a sample of your work — my simplest definition)…Now here I go, aiming to find time in my Nursing Student schedule to pen an attention-grabbing query letter!

Reaper 3: Evil Among Us

January 28, 2010 at 2:23 am (eXtasy Books Releases, Introduction to the Imagination of Amanda M. Holt, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Reaper 3: Evil Among Us (Cover Art by Martine Jardin)

This third book in the Reaper Series, Reaper 3: Evil Among Us introduces a new villain to the Reaper’s world: her name is Lust, and she exudes a mind-controlling pheremone that places Samantha under her complete control for an evening of Sapphic pleasures. The morning brings with it the terrible truth and the burden of guilt. Samantha has always been bi curious, but she has just cheated on Neal with a stranger – a female stranger! Uncertain of whether or not she was forced into the encounter, or if she truly wanted Lust’s affections, Samantha struggles with feelings of guilt and unworthiness at Neal’s phone call: here’s yet another terrible secret that she must keep from him, if their relationship has any hope of lasting.

A new ally – or is it, enemy? – reveals herself in the form of a young girl – Natalie – who, though blind in one eye, has visions of the future. A dark future full of danger for the Reaper. The girl pleads with Samantha to welcome her as an ally. Does Samantha dare accept the girl’s help? Something about the young girl really rubs Samantha the wrong way…

After a massacre at a church brings Samantha perilously close to being apprehended by the authorities, she must use Neal as an alibi. Lying to her cop lover – yet again – is risky business. Off the hook, she evades suspicion once more, though just barely.

Fighting demons of the Hell dimension as surely as she fights the demons of her mind, Samantha goes toe to toe with opponents against whom she is helpless. They are the Shiro Tai, Japanese warriors whose holy fire burns through the black second-skin of her exoskeleton leaving her wounded and exposed.

Worse yet, Natalie has caught the entire thing on video!

Samantha runs to her healer for help, only to hear that Angela cannot heal these wounds. How is she going to explain these injuries to Neal and to her partner on the force? Furthermore, if Natalie goes to the media with her recording, her life – as she knows it – is over!

What does the future hold for a woman who’s on the verge of losing EVERYTHING?

Reaper: The Beginning

January 27, 2010 at 11:01 pm (eXtasy Books Releases, Introduction to the Imagination of Amanda M. Holt, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Reaper: The Beginning (Artwork by Martine Jardin)

Reaper: The Beginning is the first novel in my Reaper Series of books, following the initial manifestation of Samantha Bennet’s paranormal nature during an attack on her young self. As her black exoskeleton appears for the first time sporting razor sharp claws, one can see that it’s a terrible way for a teenager to find out that she’s different from everyone else. The vengeance she exacts on on her attackers is swift and ruthless and in the aftermath she is left wondering where this strange and lethal “second skin” has come from.

As an adult, Samantha burns the candle at both ends fighting crime: as a vigilante in the dark of night and as a rookie police officer paired up with Phil, an experienced cop who becomes a father figure as well as a dear friend. She finds lust – and possibly love – in the arms of a co-worker, Neal, who brings her to heights of ecstasy she has never before known. Yet as Neal tries to foster a closeness between them, Samantha pulls away and feels more alone than ever before. She knows that her dark secret must never be revealed, not to her lover (who as an officer of the law might be more inclined to attempt to arrest her than to applaud her actions), not to anyone she cares about!

An Eastern mystic is privy to the truth about the origin of Samantha’s power. His revelation is shocking and hard to believe. The biological father Sam never knew was a notorious Fallen Angel, making her a Nephalim, the offspring of her mother’s human womb and Azkaziel’s angelic seed.

With villains both human and supernatural coming out of the woodwork and her lover becoming suspicious of her late-night outings, does Samantha have a snowball’s hope in Hell of surviving what Fate has dealt her?

Find out in this, the first book of four (so far) in the Reaper Series, on sale now at http://www.extasybooks.com (see Amanda M. Holt under the Author Search).
