Hot For Holiday Super Valentine's Day Sale



All right everyone, now is the time! Valentine's Day is almost here, and as a special treat for all three people who will read this post, I've got some pretty cool deals for you ;)

The Hot For Holiday Super Sale is now well under way. There are NYT and USA Today Bestselling authors who are giving away their free or on sale books. Mandy Roth, Cathryn Fox, and many others!

I am neither NYT or USAT, but magically I managed to get into participating in this deal to give you some cool reads that I think you'll really like :) The people running it were just that nice. Seriously.

ANYWAY! On with the giving of cool stuff! For free I'll be giving away a copy of Burns Like Fire, a sexy paranormal romance about revenge and kidnappings, and chaining your ex into the basement, on Amazon, using up my Kindle Unlimited 5 free days to present this especially to you :3 For 99 cents, there will be two books. My Angel Lover, Have Mercy On Me, which is a M/M paranormal romance with vampires and angels, and The Legend of the Werewolf, which is also a paranormal, but is not listed in the above Hot for Holiday link, so I liked it quickly above as an extra ;)





On top of this fabulous news, I was listed in the Who To Read After Fifty Shades of Grey Collection. This is not a box set, but rather a collection of authors, their works, and excerpts from books that are steamy and awesome. Check out the cover, I really love the look of it :3

Burns Like Fire is Available Now!

I am so officially stoked right now that it's release day for Burns Like Fire, particularly because of how much love it has gotten so far from the people who have read it. I was asked to be part of a box set, NYT Bestseller Opal Carew gave me a super positive review that I got to stick on my cover, I got invited into another marketing group that put me in touch with some awesome people, and the printed version looks awesome so far :3

 

A sinfully sexy hero with a tortured past who is out for revenge. Love it! You won't be able to put down this heart-rending love story until the very last page.
NYT Bestselling Author Opal Carew

I love this, and today was spent going through the few advertising and marketing vendors that I know about to just try and get some traction. I can't get onto certain other marketing websites yet, not until I have a certain number of ratings and reviews, so this is just a quick thank you to everyone who got an ARC or pre-ordered with the intent on leaving that rating or review. Every single one of you are doing so much to help me out, and it means a lot. You're awesome. Thank you :)


Cheers,

-Mandy

Hot For Holiday Sale!

hot4holiday
Dec 1 -5
OVER 50 Romance Titles from Today’s Top Selling Authors on MEGA SALE--Some Are Even FREE!

Super Hot Deals and Steals!


Okay, so, first off, I'm a total asshole because this post was supposed to go out yesterday on the morning of the FIRST, but here it is now and hopefully everyone has time to get all their holiday goodies :)

This is the Hot For Holiday Sale, over 50 authors putting up books for free, or for 99 cents. It made me wish that I was on KDP select so that I could have picked the free option, but there wasn't enough time to risk a price match, so The Vampire's Curse is at 99 cents, and there's tons more of other great authors. Eve Langlais has four books on there, Mandy M. Roth has seven, and there are a good chunk of box sets on there as well for you all to check out :3 Many of which are totally FREE (yay!)

The sale ends on the 5th of December, and I'll be tweeting and posting to Facebook on this probably a little more than I should be for not getting my blog post up in time :S The worst part is that I had a blog post I handed in last night for Nights of Passion and I STILL couldn't remember to do it -_-; I'm bad. Ugh.

Check out the link here in case I screwed up the HTML above and you can't get to these sweet deals ;) http://romancebookdeals.com/hot-for-holiday/

Captured is Now Available for 99 cents!

Woot! All right! I'm so happy! It was released a couple of days ago, but I'm just getting around to this now. Captured is now available for your reading pleasure :3 Check out these amazing links!

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

iBooks




There are 17 reviews up already and so far today it's been shifting between #180 and #220 on the Amazon Bestseller list overall. The first book I'm going to read will be Eve Langlais' Accidental Abduction. That has a purple alien that wants to sell a human woman on the black market. Sounds promising!

I'm going to attach the quote card for that one so you can all see it :)


Notice how he doesn't have nipples? :3 According to Eve, there's also something unique about his privates :D I won't spoil that one, though.

Anyway, I finally got the cover in for my story, Burns Like Fire, which will be exclusive to the set until it's no longer available, but for now, I just wanted to show it off, because I think it looks soooo good!


Check out my amazing tagline!

Hunting down his ex on a revenge mission was supposed to be easy. If only she wasn't so damned hot...

Lol, I love this. This is the book that will be in the Captured box set, and you'll get this along with Eve's story, a story by Opal Carew, and many others, for just 99 cents!!

So, lots of kidnapping going on here :3 That's one of my favorite story lines, so hopefully you all will like it too.

Cheers,



Mandy Rosko

Captured Box Set is Available For Preorder Now!

   Man, I'm supser stoked for this, and really lucky to have been invited into this box set, especially since this was all a sort of last minute thing. I asked Opal Carew if she would read my newest book Burns Like Fire, and she did. She liked it enough to invite me into this box set when the opportunity came up, and I jumped all over that thing like I was belly flopping into it. I wasn't about to walk away from something as cool as that, especially since there are so many other authors in this boxy set.

   It's selling for less than a dollar right now as well, which is a pretty good deal since there are so many bestselling stories in this set. I'm pretty much riding on their coat tails here, but I love being involved too much to care about that ;)

   But enough of that, check out the sweet, sweet, 3D cover :D


   This will be the second box set that I'm in for this month (I'll have more information on that one later), and the first one that I'm in ever. I'm going to have to print out that cover on some really nice glossy paper and then frame this or something. Maybe I'll run out to WalMart later today to do just that :3. All the shorter blurbs for the included stories are on Amazon now, but I'm going to copy and paste them below for everyone to read.

CAPTURED is a steamy collection from today's hottest authors featuring 9 sexy bad boys trying to capture your heart, every way they know how. New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Opal Carew, Cathryn Fox, Eve Langlais, T. J. Michaels, Sharon Page, S.E. Smith, and Pepper Winters, along with Teresa Morgan and Mandy Rosko bring you nine tales of sensual seduction featuring alpha male heroes determined to have their way, and willing to do anything to get it, even if that means a little seductive persuasion... 

DEBT OF HONOR by Opal Carew 
Held captive by a domineering sheikh… and made to pay for a crime she did not commit 

YOURS TO TAKE by Cathryn Fox 
Revenge takes on a sexy twist when a powerhouse lawyer is stripped of her control by the handsome multi-millionaire she once took down in the courtroom. 

ACCIDENTAL ABDUCTION by Eve Langlais 
Fall in love? Never! An alien assassin turned pirate has no use for an emotion he can't sell, but that doesn't stop him from falling for the human he captures. 

JAGUAR’S RULE by T. J. Michaels 
After an irresistible night of passion with Reya, Aaron James longs to hold her close forever. Little does he know that the tall, sleek beauty has a carnal secret—and he's the one who needs protection. 

HANDCUFFED TO THE SHEIKH by Teresa Morgan 
The last thing Maxine Foss ever expected was to be handcuffed to a sexy, but crazy, guy who claims he's an Arabian prince... and is determined to seduce her. Best. Abduction. Ever. 

FAST AND MINE by Sharon Page 
College student Claire gets lessons in seduction from sexy, hot street bike racer, Sawyer. But when she’s kidnapped by his psychotic sponsor to force him to race, can Sawyer save her and win her heart? 

BURNS LIKE FIRE by Mandy Rosko 
Jack Marilla is out for revenge for the deaths of his family, and the burn scars that cover his body. To get it, he has to hunt down the woman he used to love, the paranormal fire starter who set his house ablaze with him, and his family, locked inside of it. When he catches her, however, he faces his biggest challenge yet. To not believe her when she claims to be innocent, or fall for her seduction.. 

DEBT INHERITANCE by Pepper Winters 
Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey. There are no rules. Only payments.. 

CHOOSING RILEY by S. E. Smith 
Things take a turn for the worse when Riley St. Claire is kidnapped by aliens and forced to choose a mate. The problem is, it would have been better, and safer, for the aliens if they had left Riley back on Earth.


   I can't wait until this comes out, just seeing the cover makes it so real. Burns Like Fire isn't available on it's own yet and is a completely new book. I'll be uploading it after this box set is no longer available, which will be sometime in mid October I believe, but it could be sooner, so I would recommend getting this sooner than later, even if you don't read my stuff just so you can get these other bestsellers :)

   Right now I need to find reviewers for this, so I'll be back with updates later,


(Edit: I just noticed that what I copy and pasted is being whited out on the blog unless I highlight it. Can't figure out how to get rid of that :S Sorry all)

Cheers,


Preorder Captured!

Writing Process Blog Tour!


Hey there! I'm Mandy Rosko, an immature woman-child who still plays videogames and loves getting stuck in my own head. Writing can be a pain in the ass sometimes, especially when the words just will. Not. Come (lol, see what I did there?), but I'd rather be doing that any day of the week than, say, working a traditional job ;)

Seriously, though, I love what I do. If I couldn't read or write, I think I'd die. I need the people inside of my head in order to function properly. I need fictional characters to function, period. They give me a harmless escape that I really need. I write paranormal, M/M, and have recently started dipping my toes into erotic (I'm a bad girl :3)

Maureen Fisher brought me this blog hop, she's a great lady and she and I are in the same writing group that's affiliated with RWA. Check out her awesome blog here.

You can also read up on her latest books, and on her post about her Writing Process as well. Here, you will read all about mine.

What am I working on?

Okay, so, as for what I'm working on, right now my new erotic trilogy is a bit on the darker side of things that I normally do. The first book is a little less than 45,000 words at the moment, and the first draft is finished and currently with a reader. The premise is kind of x-men-ish, even though I'd wanted it to be paranormal. The heroine is a fire-starting pyro (I called her Cindy. Yay for originality!), and the hero, Jack, is from a family of hunters who are trained to track down paranormals and sell them for any kind of government study. Cindy and Jack used to be in a relationship and were very much in love, until the hero's house burned down around him while he and his father and brothers were still locked inside of it, leaving him terribly scarred, and his father and brothers dead 0.o I'm mean, I know. Obviously Cindy is responsible. She's a pyro, and the night of the fire happened to be on the same day he told her that his family hunts down her kind for a living, and when he tried to find her afterward, she was just gone.

Stupid him for trusting that she would understand, and to believe him when he told her that he wouldn't ever hurt her and wanted no part of that life. Now Jack wants nothing but to be a hunter, and his mission is to find Cindy and bring her in. When he catches her, he has a whole lot of time to do whatever the hell he wants to her—whatever he wants—until she's picked up, and he doesn't believe a word of it when she claims to be innocent.

How is it different from other stories in my genre?

It's hard to make anything in paranormal that's really different anymore. It seems like it's all been done, so there's not going to be any special powers that no one has ever seen before. I want this to be about the two of them getting back together despite all the anger and accusations. As far as being different from other romances, then I'd say it's different in the way that Jack treats Cindy a little rougher than some other hero's would in his position. But only a little. I don't want to make it too dark @_@ And Cindy's not going to lie down and take it either. Not in the end. She'll let Jack be as rough as he needs to, and she'll manipulate him to the best of her abilities to get him to see that she was innocent in the whole thing. This includes offering up her body in the hope that he'll remember how good they used to be together, and then let her go.

Why do I write what I do?

I have no idea. I'm still trying to figure out what I like best when it comes to my writing. I've written paranormals, medievals, books with a lot of sex and books with little to no sex, and when I was younger, a really dark teen contemporary (which is lost forever I'm sure, since I can't find it anywhere >:( grrr...) but it seems I'm a little drawn to angsty stories lately, or maybe I always have been. I love reading about when a character is down and been kicked in the head so much that you think he, or she, will never get up again, but then they do, despite wanting to lay down and just disappear. These stories usually involve help from another person, which is where my romance comes into play, but keeping the underdog an underdog and not a whining victim is challenging, and I'm working to make sure this new series prevents Cindy and Jack from either of them being whiny victims.

How does my writing process work?

Very on and off. I have a couple of different pen names, and one of them is getting more attention than the others at this point, so I can only get my writing in for this new series when I get the time. Having my iPad is great for this, because I can be lying in bed, and I'll want to crank out a few sentences before sleep takes me. So I'll open up my file and start typing on the touch screen. I get a lot of spelling mistakes in by doing that, but I also can get in 500 or 1000 words where I otherwise wouldn't have gotten any. Another great big help is the Write or Die app. I love that thing. It's basically a program you can put on your computer, put a time limit on it, the number of words you want to get done, and then click go.

If you stop writing for more than a few seconds, then the screen will start flashing a bright red, and depending on your settings, it will even screech at you as it eats your words. Really good motivation to keep writing even when you don't feel the words. Also very masochistic >:)

I've also recently discovered that I enjoy certain types of music for certain scenes. Really sad and depressing scenes get sad songs. Sex scenes get sexy songs, and light hearted scenes get light hearted songs.

etc etc. But a good example of this would be Barcelona's Please Don't Go. I used that song while writing under my different pen name to get the feel for a death scene. It was awesome. Another song I used for a love scene was Sleeping with a Friend, by Neon Trees. That's the sort of lovey song you'd expect to listen to as the credits rolled and the HEA finally got there, or right before two drunk friends were about to start making out, which was where the trouble would occur in the story.

The only thing I really know for sure is that if I don't write every day, if I miss a few days, then by the time it comes to get me back on the wagon it's that much harder. Writing every day isn't just great for word counts, but also to keep you in that groove you need to be in to get shit done. If you're not writing that day, then you'd better be editing or rewriting something, because the longer you go without writing, the harder it gets to start back up.


Stay tuned for the update on who will be writing in next week!

Also, be sure to sign up for my Newsletter to get info on free stuff when I release it!

Cheers and happy writing ;)
