All the water in the world
no matter how it tried
could never sink the smallest ship
unless it got inside.

All the evil of the world
and every kind of sin
could never damn a human soul
unless we let it in.

Someone asked me the other day if my family reads my books, which reminded me of the following:

My daughter-in-law, who is the only one in the family who reads my books, told me she and my son were going somewhere in the car and she was reading one of my books out loud. When she got to a love scene, my son said, "Stop! I don't even want to know what she was thinking!"

I always thought that was really funny. There's one other incident I thought was really funny. My best friend said she was reading one of my books and she laughed out loud. Her son was in the room and asked what she was reading. She replied, "One of Mandy's books", and he said, "If Mandy wrote it, how funny can it be?"

It's comments like that that keep me humble .

Questions and Comments

Click and type in a question or comment

I purchased one of your books "Night's Kiss" and there are blank pages throughout the book. You are reading and getting really interested in the book and turn the page to 2 blank pages!!!!! I am so upset that I have this book. Is there anyway you can send me a new book and I'll return this one to you???? Pls get in touch with me at jswann40@yahoo.com

I've notified my editor. If she can't send you a new copy, I'll see if I have one. Sorry for the inconvenience!!!! Mandy

Hi Mandy!
Just wishing you a Happy Halloween!!!!
Take Care!!!
Ella

Hi Ella ~ A Happy Halloween to you, as well!!!!! Mandy 10/31/16

Hi Mandy!
I've been reading your books for more than 20 years now and I love them. You are my favorite author;I have always wanted to write for a living, but it's just a hobby for me now.

Hi ~ Hey, when I started writing, it was just for the fun of it. I never intended to sell anything to anyone :) I always said when it stops being fun, I'll quit. Fortunately, that hasn't happened yet! Merry Christmas!!!! Mandy

Hi, Mandy, I'm real sorry I've not been in touch with you and that last years gifts went astray....I'll explain soon I promise.
I just had to drop a line and say thank you as your books still offer great fun and intrigue, and comfort. I'm re-reading Sunlight-Moonlight this Halloween and for Literature class we are reading Darkfest. My teachers is all but converted to your work! lol and she's not too keen on the paranormal magic of your heroes, but I am! Still a devoted fan - haggled with the local library about the lack of respect given to your work here and craved hamburgers and chocolate drinks while reading Sunlight today! lol Had to express I love your work for many reason but I mostly like how you take the same idea and change it many different ways and that you dance so beautifully upon the line of full on horror and the magical intrigue. I've had far too many encounters with real life killers (all of whom were human) to like the true to life dark as hell stuff but you don't offer that. Love the new cover art for Sunlight by the way, really nice colour and layers to it.

I hope you are well and not mad at me. I promise to get back in touch with you this Christmas and explain. Many thanks again for the endless wonderful reads and hope you have a great Halloween.
Ella.
oh, and exempt me from the contest I'm not in the US.

Hi Ella ~ so nice to hear from you again!!!! Thank you so much for your kind words about my books. I hope I never disappoint you. I'm going to pass your compliment about the new Sunlight cover to the designer. She's given me some fabulous covers!!! Keep in touch! Wishing you a Happy Halloween, a blessed Thanksgiving, and a joyous Christmas. Mandy 10/23/16

How do you keep the characters in your books separate from each other? Do you use people in your life to pattern them after?

Hi ~ Well, that's a good question. I guess it's kind of like with my kids. I know them all pretty well and rarely get them mixed up. As for patterning my characters after people I know.....I've never done that. Mandy 9/6/16

Hi Mandy! Did you ever go to writing classes before you wrote your first book?
-Amanda

Hi Amanda. I've never taken any classes on writing. Never intended to be a published author. I started writing simply because I was bored. If a friend of mine hadn't read one of my manuscripts and suggested I try to find a publisher, I'd probably still be writing my stories and hiding them under the bed!
Mandy 7/17/16


Hello! I was just wondering if your book Beneath a Midnight Moon will be available in paperback form? I have only been able to find it as an eBook.

Hi. As mentioned below, it's only available as an eBook. Sorry :(
Mandy 5/2/16


Hi Mandy it's Felicia I was wonder if your book moonlight will be paperback cause I really want to read it

Hi Felicia ~ At the moment, I don't know if there are any plans to put Moonlight in print. I sure hope so. I might have a paperback copy. If so, maybe I'll put it up for a contest prize. Best, Mandy 4/18/16

Happy Thanksgiving!!! :)
Ella
Ella, right back at ya!!!!! Mandy 11-26-15

Hi Mandy, Hope you are well and that the weather there is to your liking. I just read on you page about your new book. Who is Abbey Marie Cordova closest related too? I know the last name so no doubt I've read some of the other books in the series but I'm still tracking down a lot of the series and am a bit behind. Ella

Hi Ella ~ Abbey Marie is Rane Cordova's daughter. After a couple of cool days and a little rain, the weather here has been like summer again. I am so ready for winter!!!! Mandy 11/7/15

If I can get 3 bookplates that would be awesome. How much do they cost? And where do I send you my address? :)

Hi ~ no charge for bookplates. Send your name and addy to darkwritr@aol.com with a note that you want bookplates....Mandy 9//26/15

Hello, Is there any way to buy signed books from you?
I been trying to hunt down a few signed copies such as Midnight Embrace and A Darker Dream since these were the first books that I read. Of course now I have read most of your books but these two are special and I would like to add signed copies to my book collection :)

I would be happy to sign your books if you want to send them to me with return postage. If you send them book rate, I believe it's less than $3.00. Or I can send you bookplates. Mandy 9/24/15

Please keep writing I cannot wait for the next. Abby and Nick story was awesome.

Hi ~ I have no plans to stop writing, believe me. So glad you enjoyed Abbey and Nick's story! Thanks for letting me know. Mandy 9/9/15

Yesterday I received my pre-ordered Night's Surrender book. It was amazing & I could not put it down; read the entire book!! Your talent at writing stories is great. You have such a talent at drawing your readers into your books, books/stories that can be read over and over. Thank you SO much for sharing that talent with us!! You are awesome!!

Hi. Thanks so much. I'm so glad you enjoyed Night's Surrender, as well as my other books. I love it when my readers say they've read my books more than once, because I do that with my fav authors, too :) Have a wonderful day. Mandy 9/3/15

Hi Mandy,
Oh, my can you believe there's a book of yours that I've not heard of? How did that happen? lol - its the group book titled Stroke of midnight. It looks delightful!
Hope you are well.
Ella

Wow, Ella, that's an oldie! Hope you enjoy it!!!! Mandy 9/3/15

Just finished night's surrender. Loved it! Please consider one more. I can't bare for it to be over just yet. This is by far my favorite series ever!
Thank you for being an amazing writer.

See me smile! I'm delighted that you enjoyed Night's Surrender. I am seriously considering one more. I actually started Father Lanzoni's story, but had to put it aside temporarily to work on a book coming out next year. Keep an eye on my web page for details. Mandy 9/3/15

Hi. I just loved Night's Surrender! What an excellent story; I was so happy that you included all of the Cordovas as well as the DeLongpres in the story, and I thoroughly enjoyed Pearl and Edna's adventure as well as their happy ending. I just loved Nick, he was perfect for Abbey. What an amazing writer you are! You're still my favorite author. I've read all of your books more than once in both genres, and I'm very much looking forward to your upcoming releases in both.
~Sharon

Hi Sharon ~ I'm so excited that you loved Night's Surrender! I do, too It was so fun to bring all the characters into one book and visit them again. I just love all of them. Thanks for your post. It made my day! Mandy

I love all ur books there amazing I can't wait until nights surrender comes out.when is the actual date it just says September?

Hi ~ According to Amazon, the pub date is August 25th! Mandy 8/20/15

Hi Mandy, Just wondering have you ever had to write a book under unsavoury or emotionally unpleasant circumstances? How'd you get through it? Ella

Hi Ella ~ I've had a few rough times. Sometimes I can't write at all. Other times, it's a great escape from reality. I think every writer handles stress differently. There's no right or wrong way. You just have to get through it as best you can. Mandy 8/3/15

Hello there :)
I stopped by curious how to go about getting a book signed. I have a copy of Desire After Dark that I'd like to send in to get singed by Amanda Ashley. It's the first romance novel I ever read. Never did like to read in my life :D but I guess I wasn't reading the right genre that fit me. Also I checked the contest section but it's blank. There is no contest info and I'd like to enter it. Thank you for your time
Gloria

Hi Gloria ~ If you'd like to send me your book, with return postage, I'll be happy to sign it for you. Media mail is the way to go. If you'd like to do that, please email me at darkwritr@aol.com for details. I'm sorry the contest page is blank when you go there. It works for me when I go there from the web. Here's the link...

Hope this helps. Have a great day! Mandy 6/16/15


Hi There.
I just absotively, posolutely love your work. I have yet to find a book, under either name, that I did not fall into. I laughed, cried, and other things I shouldn't mention, with each of your characters. I found your work at a time I was so overwhelmed and lost, it helped me lose myself for a bit then come back more able to take on life's fun lessons. I was never one who would read anything, my teachers did my midterms and book reports to get me out of their classes lol, but you made a book lover out of me. I am now able to encourage and pass on that love to my children, so they can do better, as reading is very important.
Thank you.

Hi ~ I must say, your letter made my day! I've always felt that whatever gift or talent I have is a gift from God and when I read letters like yours, it only reinforces that belief.
Plus, I love it when someone tells me they hated to read until they read one of my books Thanks so much. And God bless you and your family! Mandy 2/23/15



Mandy,
Just wanted to stop by and say 'hi' (wave) and to wish you a Happy Halloween! The holidays have begun! Yay! Iím so excited about my plans for this year.
I just finished hand stitching my costume for tonight, I'm going as a garden fairy. Next year I'm thinking something less feminine like ....Zorro! Though I'm defently no Antonio Banderas! Who could be! Other than Antonio Banderas himself I guess - lol Ė Iím already into the candy and most likely on a sugar high already. Hope you have a fantastic Halloween!
All the best!
Ella
P.S Dead Perfect was a great Halloween read choice I love it!

Hi Ella ~ We had a fun Halloween with the grandkids. Lots of walking. Lots of candy. Lots of laughs. Antonio....sigh. Happy to know one of my books kept you company :) Mandy 11/1/14

Soo I finally read Mara's story I was so anxious long ago for you to write it. Only to find I was afraid to read what you did with her I had my own thoughs and hopes for her I didnt want to be dissappointed :) however I LOVED HER STORY ! Has to be the funnest book of them all to imagine her gourging herself on chocolates was just awesome ! Loved the suprise gift she recieved and her life as we now know it. Thank you for giving her the life a vampire queen deserves.

Whew! You had me worried for a minute there. I'm sooooo glad you loved Mara's story! It was wonderful fun to write. I just finished what I think will be the last book in the series, and it was also fun to do. I think all the characters from all the previous books are in it, including my two little old lady vampires, Edna and Pearl. Mandy 10/12/14

Hi Mandy,
I was searching to find a replacement copy of Dead Perfect and found I might only be able to get it online, do you have a particular site for buying your books? If so is there any chance of finding a replacement copy of midnight pleasures also? I dearly miss these stores and was hoping to read them for Halloween this year.
I hope all is well with you.
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I believe you can order a paperback copy of Dead Perfect from Zebra ~
http://www.kensingtonbooks.com/author.aspx/24949
and that you can buy Midnight Pleasures here
http://us.macmillan.com/search? keyword=Midnight+pleasures&bisac_heading=combined&order=relevance

Hope this helps! Mandy 9/4/14


DEAR MADOLINE I HAVE PURCHASED AND READ ALMOST EVERYONE OF YOUR BOOKS AND I LOVE YOUR SPECIAL HAPPY ENDINGS. I RESENTLY PUBLISHED THROUGH PAGE OF NY MY FIRST NATIVE AMERICAN ROMANCE CALLED "MIST WOMAN". I WOULD REALLY LIKE AN HONEST OPINION OF MY WORK AND SOME ADVICE ON HOW TO MAKE MY WRITING MORE SUCCESSFUL. BUT I DIDN'T WRITE IT TO BECOME RICH BUT TO TELL A STORY THAT BUBBLED OUT OF MY SOUL AND BEGGED TO BE READ. I REALLY COULD USE AN AUTHOR FRIEND I COULD RAP TO NOW AND AGAIN. YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT BARBARALAMPING@YAHOO.COM THANKS AND BLESS YOU BARB

Hi Barb ~ I think it's wonderful that you're writing. I can tell it's important to you and that you're excited about it. As for advice, you're already doing the most important part - writing what you love and are passionate about. I'll try to answer any questions you have if you emal me at DarkWritr@aol.com. Mandy 8/26/14

hi there, love love love your books. I was just reading the part of your site about Star wars vs Titanic. I've got another add on for the list.......as a nor-cal girl I have to side with Star Wars....cuz not only does Mr. Lucas have streets named after him, but he has the coolest EVER named estate SKYWALKER RANCH.
DUDE! GEORGE totally gets his "kick ass on"

Hi ~ I'm happy to know you love my books! I love writing them. And I have to agree. It's Star Wars all the way!!!!! Can't wait for the new movie. I hope Disney gets it right!!!! Mandy 8/10/14

Hi!
Love your work! :D um well I was wondering if you could send me a book Mark? If not it's fine! :D

Send me an email with your name and address and let me know if you want any bookmark in particular. Mandy 8/1/14

Hi,
I just finished my ARC copy of Beauty's Beast. Do you plan on writing any future books about some of the supporting characters in that book?
Thanks,
Miranda

Hi Miranda. I hope you enjoyed Beauty's Beast. At the moment, I don't have any plans for a sequel. Hope you're having a wonderful summer. Mandy 7/24/14

Hey Mandy!
It's Amanda again thank you for the advice! Well I was wondering of you could maybe read one of my story's I wrote and tell me what you think of it. If your busy I understand. :)

Hi ~ I'm sorry, but I don't do that. Years ago, I read an unpublished manuscript for a friend who later accused me of stealing her work - some friend, right? - but I vowed then and there never to let myself be open to such an accusation again. I hope you understand. Best of luck with your writing. Mandy 7/2/14

Mandy,
I have read & re-read your stories so many times that I think I could recite them word for word. You are an amazing and talented writer, an incredible story teller. I can not wait until your next book comes out for us to be pulled into it.
You have the ability to draw your reader into your stories so much that once they start reading them, they can not put them down until the story is completed.
Thank you for sharing your talent with us all.
I really wish they would put your stories into movies. You would blow the Twilight series away.
One of your number one fans ~
Lori Y.

Hi Lori ~ thank you for your kind words re my books! I'm so glad you've enjoyed them enough to read them over and over again. I consider than high praise, indeed! As for movies, that's long been a dream of mine, but, so far, no one in Hollywood seems interested. Maybe some day! Mandy 7/2/14

Hi Amanda!
My name is also Amanda and Well all the books I have read that you wrote were AMAZING!!! Well I want to be an author when I grow up so I was wondering if you had any advice?

Hi Amanda ~ Writing advice? Write what you love to read. Write what you know. Write what excites your imagination. Don't get discouraged. NEVER give up! My first book was rejected 31 times before I sold it. Best of luck to you. Mandy 6/30/14

June is my birthday month!!! I just turned 28!!! *crosses fingers and hopes to win* I love all your books!!! You were the original author that made me fall in love with reading/paranormal romances/ and vampires! would you ever consider doing a continuation(sequel) of one of your old books weather it is about the main character, their children, or anything ..such as Embrace the night, deeper than the night, a darker dream or midnight embrace! I could read those books over and over again. - Alanna H.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALANNA. I hope you have (had) a wonderful day. If I could come up with a plot for any of the books you mentioned, I'd write a sequel in a minute! Unfortunately, I've never had any inspiration for sequels....at least not yet Happy Birthday again. Mandy 6/16/14

I love your "Night" Series and sad to see it end, but then maybe you can do a spinoff. You character, Father Lanzoni is in each book. I would love to learn of his story, maybe he finds love himself. There were priests that did marry and still retained their priesthoods.

Hi. I'm happy to know you've enjoyed my Night books. I loved writing them and I'd love to write another. I never thought of doing Father Lanzoni's story. I'll have to keep that in mind when I finish this Western. Mandy 6/11/14

Hey I just wanted to say I started Bound by Blood this morning and just finished it. Obviously I couldn't put it down! It was a fabulous way to spend my Sunday relaxing. I am wondering if there is going to be another book in the series? I would love to continue reading their story.

Hi ~ I'm glad you enjoyed Bound By Blood. Have you read the companion story, Bound by Night? Those are the only two books in the series at this time. Mandy 6/11/14

I was wondering if you could by moonlight in paperback 3892

Hi ~ Moonlight is only available as an eBook at the moment, but it will be available in paperback, combined with Sunlight, in a few months. Mandy 5/1/14

Hi Mandy, I just received a copy of your new book Night"s Promise and I have hard time putting the book down, probably I will finish the book by midnight, I am glad you brought back to the story the old ladies Edna and Pearl, they are quite a characters, I love to hate them, even though hatred is a really bad feeling but when it comes to fictional characters I think is funny. I can't help to laugh that after 100 plus years these two ladies are looking for two elderly men to love. Anyway I love the book, I heard some where this might be the last book on the Night Series, I hope NOT. Over the years we have learn to love this family of vampires.
thanks for your amazing stories

Hi Efrain ~ It's good to hear from you. I'm so glad you enjoyed Night's Promise. I've come to love Edna and Pearl. There's one more book in the series - and Edna and Pearl figure in that story, too. I don't have a pub date or a title for this book. Hopefully, it will be out next year. Mandy 2/28/14

i love ur books that keep me going from start to finish. i just started reading ur books to my daughter that loves to read books about vamps, shifters. there are not alot of authors that do that in there writting i am glad u are one of them that do that.

Hi ~ I'm so glad that you and your daughter are enjoying my books. I love writing about vampires and werewolves and things that go bump in the night Have a great day. Mandy 2/13/14

Hi Mandy, I just got word your latest book has just been released! Congratulations! It was delightful good news to start my day with. Iím so excited about getting a copy, Still love all your books, both Westerns and Paranormals, theyíve always been an integral part of my life!
All the best!
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I hope you'll enjoy Night's Promise. Thanks for your suppport all these years. I appreciate it! Mandy 2/12/14

Love your books. The stories pull you in and keep you interested. You are by far my favorite author. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world of readers!! Just wish we could get someone in the world of movies to agree and make some of your books into movies. Loved Twilight series but you are so much better of a story teller. ; ) ~L.Y.

Hi L.Y. ~ I'm so glad you've enjoyed my books. I've said it before, I'll say it again - I love writing them and hope to write many more. And thank you for your comment re Twilight. You made my day!!!! Happy Valentine's day to you. Mandy 2/11/14

Hey Mandy I just love your books. I just thought I would let you know!!

Thanks, bunches!!!! That's always nice to hear! Hope you had a wonderful day! Which book is your favorite? Mandy 1/30/14

hi mandy love all your books i was wondering if you are going to have any apperances in pa at all

Hi ~ I'm delighted that you love my books. I love writing them. As for visiting PA, I don't see that happening. I would love to meet all my fans, but, since I'm afraid to fly, I'm afriad you'd have to come to me Mandy 1/29/14

Good Evening Mandy,
I just saw on your website that Nights Promise will be out in February. Sounds good. I am looking forward to a small box of Godiva Chocolate and buying your vampire Romance, Happy February to me. :) Well almost February, I should say :) Marie L.

Hi Marie ~ sounds great to me. I hope you enjoy Night's Promise. I loved this story!!!! Mandy

Hey :D I was wondering if you would be doing and book signings anytime soon

Probably not. Sadly, there aren't a lot of bookstores left. Mandy 12/27/13

Thanks for answering me. I love the night series it's my favorite.I can't wait until they all come out.

Be sure to let me know what you think of Night's Promise when it comes out. I think it might be my favorite Night book. Mandy 11/1/13

Hello I saw where your writing Abbeys story is that part of the night series, and will that be the last one. Not that I want it to you could write them forever and I'd be okay with that.

Hi ~ Yes, I'm working on Abbey's story. It will be Book 7 in the Night series. At the moment, I think it will be the last book, but you never know. I thought Night's Pleasure would be the last book, and then I wrote Mara's story, and then Derek's story (Night's Promise). So, like I said, you just never know. Thanks for asking. Mandy 10/30/13

hey mandy I hope your having a great September as well.

Thanks, I did! Mandy 10/30/13

Hi Mandy!
I have finished Nights Mistress. Loved it!! It took me about 3 days to finish it. As always, I am NEVER disappointed by your books. Just re-read Dead Sexy and am now re-reading Desire after Dark. Thanks so much for giving me the chance to lose myself to so many sexy men!! :) This is why you are the first author I look for when buying a new book! Bobbie

Hi Bobbie ~ I'm so glad you enjoyed Night's Mistress. As you probably know, I was worried about what my readers would think. Thankfully, I've had only positive feedback!!!! I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, Night's Promise, due in February, and I'm currently working on what will probably be the last book in the series. It's so much fun to revisit characters I love. Happy Fall! Mandy 9/23/13

I've received snail mail from you in the past and I just moved. Should I give you my new address?

Hi Krissy ~ please email it to me :) Mandy 8/23/13

I had to laugh at Marry the Beast and Get that Library, to Funny:) The contest winner won "Dead Perfect". I love that book it was a wonderful read. If anyone is thinking of reading it, you must buy it. Have a good evening,...PS if this comment comes up twice, sorry having some trouble with the Captcha

Hi ~ I laughed out loud at the Marry the Beast sign the first time I saw it. Plus, I love the beast, which is why I wrote my own Beauty and the Beast book, which is coming out in 2015, I think. Happy to know you enjoyed "Dead Perfect" and appreciate the recommendation. Have a great weekend!
Mandy 7/25/13


Hello Mandy!
I am currently reading the night's series again ready for Mara's story next month, sooo excited for it to arrive! Bin waiting for what feel's like a life time! Do you know if it will be available in any uk stores? Amazon is normally my best bet, but it's just not the same as going into a store and finding a new book.
Thanks,
Robbie

Hi Robbie ~ I hope you'll enjoy Mara's story. Readers have waited so long, I can't help wondering if you'll be disappointed......I sure hope not.
I don't know if my books are available at stores in the UK. I'll ask my editor and see what she says. Have a great weekend! Mandy 7/4/13


Hey mandy im reading immortal sins. its really good. i soooo cant wait till more of the cordova family, or well more of that series. Still love all the books!!!

Hi ~ Well, there's good news for Cordova lovers. Mara's story will be out at the end of this month, and the 6th book will be out next February. I wish it was sooner. I really love this story!!!! Happy 4th!!! Mandy 7/4/13

Hi :)
I'm SO siked to start reading your books.. I am an avid reader, I read a lot & quickly. I must say I love that you have your books listed in order of release date & what's sequels to what etc. However, do you have somewhere that list actual reading order & by series? I'm a little OCD about that kind of thing.. Sincerely, Melissa

Hi Melissa ~ If you click on the Audio/Series link at the top of the page, it lists the books in the order they should be read. You can read all the others in the order they were published or not, since they are all stand alone books. I hope this helps! If not, email me at DarkWritr@aol.com Have a great day. Mandy 6/30/13

Hey mandy. just finished with nights pleasure. it was fantastic. cant wait for august to get here for nights mistress. hope u doing great. thank krystal!!

Thanks, Krystal! So glad you enjoyed Night's Pleasure. All is well here! Mandy 6/15/13

Hi there, I just started reading your books and just wanted to say that I have found another great author! Can't wait to read some of the other books you have written :) Take care.

Hi ~ Thanks for signing my guestbook. I'm happy to know you're enjoying my books. I do love writing them. Have a great weekend. Mandy 6/7/13

of course the ultimate winner will be delighted to be featured in the book...lol you are an awesome scribe I look forward to dark n handsome dreamin
nh, reader

Mandy...come to creative bead chat on facebook
I invite you to set up a choker contest
the prize being it will feature a likness on the cover of your next book..lol and wouldn't it be touching if you wandered into the craft of jewelry and marketing in craft fairs as a focus...

Hi ~ I don't know if the two entries above are from the same person. I hate to display my ignorance, but I don't know how to find creative bead chat. As for a choker contest, having the prize winner be on the cover of my next book isn't likely to happen, since I have no control over the covers. Sorry. Mandy 5/25/13

I wanted to thank you for including my review for Desire the Night on your site. I loved the book as I have the paranormals you have written. One small thing, and it's not bigee it happens all the time, my name is misspelled. Can't wait to get my hands on your next release.
Annetta

Hi Annetta ~ thanks for letting me know. I've corrected your name :) Sorry about that. And thanks, again, for the wonderful review! Mandy 5/20/13

I just want to say that I'm reading nights master and it is so amazing I can't wait to read pleasure and then on to nights mistress. Thank you so much for the book marks. I truly love your books. Thanks Krystal :-D

Hi Krystal ~ Happy to know you're enjoying Night's Master. I love the Cordova family Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mandy 5/19/13

Thank you very much. I love your book As Twilight falls it was fantastic just like any other I'm looking forward to your next book
Have a great week
Carmen

Hi Carmen ~ I'm so glad you enjoyed As Twilight Falls!!!!! Can't wait to hear what you think of Night's Mistress :) Mandy 5/13/13

Do you know if there's going to be more sequels to Night Mistress or anymore vampires stories cooking on the pot?
Efrain

Hi Efrain ~ Yes, there is a sequel to Night's Mistress. It will be out next February. Mandy 5/11/13

hi Mandy, I just read your new book As Twilight Falls, it was Totally Awesome, I'm looking forward to read Night Mistress and Maras son "the sequel" coming on February 2013.

Hi~ I'm so glad you enjoyed As Twilight Falls!!! I'm anxious - and a little nervous - to get my readers reaction to Night's Mistress. I mean, so many of my readers have been waiting for Mara's story....I'm really afraid of disappointing them. Mandy 5/11/13

Hello amanda
I'm so in love with your books. There the high light of my day when a new book comes out. I would love to be in your next contest. To win one of your books and somthing signed from you. If its to much to ask if I could get a book mark from you.
Sincerely Carmen

Hi Carmen ~ To be in my contest, all you have to do is sign my guestbook, and you're in until I get a new guestbook. As for bookmarks, if you email me your address, I'll be happy to send you some. Mandy 5/11/13

Hi mandy, I was wondering if I could have one of your bookmarks? If not its ok, I will still continue to read your awesome books!!! Thanks Krystal... :)

Hi Krystal ~ email me your address with bookmark in the subject line :) Hope you're having a wonderful day! Mandy 5/5/13

Hi Amanda,
I want to say that you are an amazing writer, and I love your books. You have a great gift, and everyone can read them. I have read so many of your books. The 1st one Iever read was shades of grey.. I finished that one in 2 weeks. Then I read after sundown, and I read that one in about 8 days. Then I moved to bound by night and finished that one in 2 days. But, I hope your spring is going good so far. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi ~ I'm happy to know you've enjoyed my books. All I can say is, wow! You sure read fast!!!!! Aside from my hard drive crashing, everything is good!!!! Thanks to the good people at Staples, I didn't loose anything, although, thankfully, I had my current WIP backed up. A happy spring to you, too. Mandy 4/16/13

Hello Mandy,
Thank you so much for offering to send me the bookmarks! I just sent you an email. =)
I was wondering, do you know if some of the earlier books you wrote will be in ebook format anytime soon? Such as A Whisper of Eternity, A Darker Dream, Shades of Gray, After Sundown, Midnight Embrace, Embrace the Night, and Sunlight Moonlight?
I have read almost everything else you have written and would definitely buy these if they came out in ebook format!
Thank You!
Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ I'll get those bookmarks in the mail tomorrow. As for the books you mention, I believe most of them are available as eBooks from Amazon, or will be soon. Mandy 4/14/13

Hello Mandy!
I haven't been on this site for a while, but I just recently finished "Desire the Night" and it was fantastic! It was another wonderful read! I can't wait for the next books of yours to come out! I was wondering do you have book marks for Night's Mistress, Dead Sexy, and As Twilight Falls? I would absolutely love a few bookmarks from you! I also read your "Working On" section and it sounds like it will be another amazing book!
Thank You! Dawn Collander

Hi Dawn ~ I'm glad you enjoyed Desire the Night. Thanks for letting me know :) I do have bookmarks for the books you mentioned. If you email me at DarkWritr@aol.com I'll be glad to send them to you. Just remind me which ones you want. I'm happy you enjoyed reading what I'm working on now. I've been having a good time writing it....at the moment, I'm trying to figure out how to tie up the loose ends and give my hero and heroine a happy ending! Mandy 4/13/13

Are there new books coming out after Desire the night and his dark embrace for those series? thanks

Hi ~ I sorry to say I don't have any plans for sequels to either of these books at the moment. I'm currently working on a sequel to Night's Mistress, which is Mara's story. Mandy 4/5/13

Hi, Mandy

LOL yes I know that one oh so well! Trouble with me is Iíve got pens and notepads all over the house but still canít find one when needed Ė lol lord only knows why our characters delight in talking to us when we try to sleep it donít seem to matter how tired I am my mind is abuzz constantly! I think the paranormal ones are the worse because of the endless possibilities of them - my vampiric character Alexis (Waiting On Sundown) wasnít happy with how I ended Chp 1 and literally will not leave me alone but heís not really saying anything meritable and oddly enough I have a case of writerís block, lol donít ask me how that one works! Ė the endless joys of being a writer! And boy how I love it :) Iím moving into a place soon thatís stuck in-between the two parks that inspired 2 of my works and these heroes donít get along and neither shuts up Ė boy is that goanna be fun! lol

by the way thanks for writing Shades of Grey, (and all your others) its a delight things have been trying here of late and I knew they would be so I pick one of your books cuz they hold the most power for me. Inspiring entertaining and a delightful momentary escape. Trouble is sometimes I love reading them so much itís hard to put it down to get on with things Ė lol youíre a wonderful writer. Love your books. Thanks so much.

Take Care
Ella



Hi Mandy,
Oh thank you so much, I remember now, it was a book I sadly donít own but read a library copy of about 4 years ago. Thanks so much it was bugging me like crazy, hereís an example as a fellow writer you might understand. Have you ever had an idea and didnít have a pen and paper handy then later when you have pen in hand you for the life of you cannot remember what it was and it just seems to sit there in your subconscious like a little voice laughing Ďnarddy nar ha you canít rememberí thatís what it was like Ė lol so thanks for clearing it up, no wonder I couldnít find the answer digging out my book collection as the golden book wasnít there! :) thanks. Hope you have a happy spring too hereís itís almost winter (or at least what AUS calls winter Ė lol)
All the best!
Ella

Hi Ella ~ Yes, I've had those moments when an idea came to me and I didn't have a pen at hand. It's usually late at night and I'm too lazy to get up and write it down, certain I'll remember in the morning, but I never do, so now I keep paper and pencil on my night stand!!!! Mandy 4/4/13


Hi Mandy Ė hope you had a great weekend.
Iím pleased to say Iíve finally stumbled across a copy of Ďshades of greyí Iím only 37pages in lol but Iím loving it already however it is seriously driving me crazy who is Edward Ramsey? Is he by chance in any of your other books? His name sounds so hauntingly familiar I can almost swear Iíve read about him in one of your other books. Am I right or is it just a quirky sense of deja vu with no grounding?
All the best
Ella

Hi Ella ~ You're right. Edward Ramsey is also in After Sundown :) Happy Spring! Mandy 4/3/13

Hi Mandy,
Thanks for the advice - hope you have a good long weekend!
All the Best!
Ella

You're welcome, Ella. Best of luck to you! Mandy 3/26/13

Hi Mandy just thought Iíd drop by and say hi, great to hear your writing another 'Night' story I really love that series Iím sure there are a few good oldies of them Iím actually yet to read! *yay!* My local bookstore tells me were getting in some of your books next month, saving my pennies for those naturally lol
Quick Query, Iíve re-read some of my work and in parts it reads like Iím trying to get all this info and such out all at once like Iím talking without taking a breath, Iím not that wise in the realm of the written word but even I can tell thatís not good, in fact since I got my north and west mixed up in Waiting On Sundown and had a few other little typos despite my fine tooth combing I think I can see why I lost the contest. Any advice on how to smooth out my work?
Eagerly awaiting your new books, Iím sure Iíll love em!
Happy Easter!
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I wish I could tell you how to write, but, unfortunately, I can't. There are, however, numerous books out there that might be able to help. I sometimes write really long sentences myself. Luckily, my critique group is good at catching those! One thing that I've found really helps is reading your work out loud.
A Happy Easter to you, too! Mandy 3/23/13


Hi Mandy,
I just wanted to let you know that you are my #1 FAVORITE AUTHOR! I randomly chose one of your books at Barnes n Noble and ever since I've been stuck. I could read your books over and over. Love ya.
-Robyn

Hi Robyn ~ I'm thrilled to be your favorite author! You've made my day!!!! Have a great weekend and a blessed and happy Easter. Mandy 3/23/13

hi Mandy, this is Efrain Martinez, I wrote you about your new book "As Twilight Falls" coming on hardback or hardcover for sale on double day book club, but I forgot to write my name as the person who make comment, I still checking for your other book " Night Mistress" I did pre-order both on Amazon.com, they are going to sale the soft cover version, I did pre-order also the hard cover version of as twilight falls and I am waiting to pre-order "night mistress" on hard cover as soon as double day book club put it up for sale on their website.
thanks
Efrain

Hi Efrain ~ I had a feeling it was you. Since Night's Mistress won't be out until August, it might be a month or two before it's available in hard back. Take care! Mandy 3/23/13


Mandy Your new book as twilight falls is going to be available for sale on hardcover on doubleday book club. I pre-order my copy.

Hey, thanks for letting me know!!!! Mandy 3/15/13

Hi Mandy,
I started rereading you books and it's taking me down memory lane from when I first read them. You are my favorite author and what got me into paranormal books. When is the next time you will do a book signing tour? Alanna
alannajoyce@aol.com

Hi Alanna ~ I think it's great that you're re-reading my old books! As for a book signing tour, I've never done that. It's something that's usually suggested by an author's publisher, or used to be. I'm not sure it's done much any more, although I know Kenyon does it. I think she has her own bus. Take care. Mandy 2/25/13

Hey such a fan. But question is your new beneath the midnight moon by amanda ashley different from beneath the moon by madeline baker 1993? its the only one I can find! I must have missed the newer one in stores cause I can't find it in walmart or target or booksmillion online. all they have is kindle reader. I know weird question but I have all you books and have it on my phone when your new ones come out and just missing this one lol. Thanks for reading

Hi ~ There's only one Midnight Moon. It was originally published by Leisure Books. When Zebra reissued it, they wanted to use my Ashley name because all my Zebra books are Ashley books. It isn't available in print any more, although I hope that might change somewhere down the road. Mandy 2/17/13

Hello Mandy, could you please tell me if your new book "AS TWILIGHT FALLS" is going to be on hardback, I checked amazon.com and you can pre order the soft cover book which I did already, how ever I am interested on buying a hardcover as well for my private book collection, please let me know. thanks
Efrain

Hi Efrain ~ Always good to hear from you. I don't know if AS TWILIGHT FALLS will be available in hardback. I think most of them have been, but at the moment, I just don't know. If you can't find one after the book is published, let me know. I'll know more by then. Mandy 2/5/13

Hi Mandy,

I'm so happy to hear that nights mistress is coming this year! Your nights collection are easily my favourite books of all time, I've lost count of how many times I've read them! Bin trying my hardest not the read them in anticipation for the new 1 but I give in last night and I'm happy to be reading them again. I've shared your books round all my friends and we all anxiously awaiting Mara's story.
Thankyou for bringing such a delightful story into our lives!
Robbie

Hi Robbie ~ I'm glad you've enjoyed my Night books. They seem to be a reader favorite. It took such a long time to get Night's Mistress in the pipeline, I just hope everyone thinks it was worth the wait!!!! Mandy 2/4/13

Mandy Hello My Friend, How have you been? I haven't written in a while. While waiting for your next book I picked up a copy of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I am only in the first few chapters but It looks good so far. Don't know if you are looking forward to the movie? Will Its getting later or should I say early, so back to bed, got to love saturdays. Thanks, Marie L

Hi Marie ~ I've been good. I read City of Bones. Thought it was pretty good. Will probably see the movie as long as it isn't rated R. Hope you had a wonderful holiday. Mandy 1/5/13

Mrs. Ashley
I wanted to start off by saying that I love your books. They grab my attention like no others. You are by far my favorite author of all time, I look forward to all your new books. Question though how do I sign up for the contest cause I would love to win a book signed by my favorite author!!
Thanks tons Carmen!

Hi Carmen ~ I'm glad to know you've enjoyed my books and delighted to be your favorite author! You're in the contest. Best of luck to you! And a very Merry Christmas! Mandy 12/19/12

Hi Mandy,
Glad you had a good time at your sonís house. My Q of ĎThe Heroís Conditioní was kind of rhetorical, all my men (clears throat Ė um mean Ďcharactersí-lol) suffer the same condition I donít write them that way they just pop into my head that way, I only seem to form the rest of their personality and back stories. I think itís one of the reasons why writers and readers find the heroes so irresistible and intriguing. I know I do. ;)
Iíd read it for sure if you ever write that wizard story, maybe the story could have a connection to Darkfest (shrugs) just a thought.
All the Best
Ella

Ella, let's face it, those Alpha guys make the best heroes. I don't know if they'd always be the easiest to live with, but, again, they make the best, most interesting heroes. I think most women want a man who can take care of them no matter what, and if they're sometimes arrogant or overbearing, well, that's part of the package! Mandy 11/28/12

Hi Mandy,
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Mine kicked off to a good start, breakfast in bed while I finished reading Darkfest! Tell me Mandy, why is it the men of the romance world never realize the power the heroine hold? LOL Most powerful wizard in the lands and yet heís as vulnerable as a new born kitten! LOL
Thanks for writing Darkfest Ė itís one of my favs
Hope you have fun
Take Care
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I had a lovely Thanksgiving at my son's house. Had to laugh at your question. I guess the answer is it's a well-guarded secret! I'm glad you enjoyed Darkfest. It's one of my favorites. I'd like to do another wizard story one of these days. Mandy 11/17/12

Hi Mandy! I love your books!

Thank you! I love writing them!!!! Mandy 11/11/12

Hi Mandy, Happy Be-lated Halloween! Hope you had a great one! We didn't do much where I lvie and got about 10 trick or treaters, we also live on a dead-end dirt road though...Lol Good to hear your away from the storms and I'm praying for all who were affected by the storms. Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ We had a nice Halloween. Spent it with our youngest son and his family. Watching the devastation from that storm....it was just unbelievable. My heart goes out to all those affected by it. Mandy 11/5/12

Hi, Mandy
Just dropping by to wish you a Happy Halloween! I hope you are fair away from the storms and that you are ok. Take care and Have fun! All the Best
Ella

Hi Ella ~ thanks for thinking of me. We're on the West Coast, enjoying warm weather. My heart goes out to those in the East who are without electricity and water, and especially to those who have lost everything. Wishing you a Happy Halloween as well. Mandy 10-20-12

Mandy I love your everlasting books, they are full of romance and love and especially Vamps love it

Thanks bunches!!!!! So glad you liked them. Mandy 10/30/12

Hi Mandy, I have just discovered your books, and I love them. I am completely in love with all things vampires, and your books definately fit the bill.

Thank you! I'm delighted to know you're enjoying my books. I love writing them. I'm really excited about my upcoming book, As Twilight Falls, which I think is one of my best, and a little different from the others. Mandy 10/30/12

Mrs. Ashley;
I have to tell you I have been a fan of your's for almost 20 years. I Have always loved vampire, supernatural and romance stories and one day about 17 or 18 years ago in a book store in Houston, TX I discovered one of your books. I have always been very picky about what I read, the book's description really has to 'grab me' for me to even consider it, well my best friend and then roommate and I were on a book shopping expedition and she first noticed your book, 'Embrace the Night'. Well I read the description and was intrigued so I bought it; I read it in one night. After that I made it a point to buy every book of that genre that you have written. I have to tell you that not only have your books been entertaining for me, but also a means for escape. A little over 12 years ago my mother suffered a stroke and we found she had terminal lung cancer. We were told that either someone stay at home with Mama or she would have to go into a home so I quit my job and took care of my mother 24/7 until her death a little over a year later. I did this by myself and can tell you it can be one of the most heartbreaking things a person can ever do because of the knowledge you have of the inevitable, but I wouldn't have changed my choice. However, there were times when Mama would be sleeping that I would need to 'get away' but since that wasn't physically possible I settled for mentally and intellectually, by reading your books. These books were my constant companions during this time and several other times in my life when I needed a mental break. I think I can honestly say that having the gift of your books there helped get me through the bad spots for all these years. I know it sounds crazy but I found that being able to just step back and 'zone out' with these stories let me be better able to cope with the stresses when I would come back into reality. Thank you so much. As a side note; Ive taken to keeping a list of your books so I can keep track of what I have and what I need to add to my collection. Thank you again for gift of your imagination and your words.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I've always felt whatever talent I have to be a gift from God, and I'm glad I was able to share it with you and that it made a difference in your life. Your mother was lucky to have a daughter like you. I'm sure you miss her. I know I still miss mine. Mandy 10/11/12

Hello Mrs. Baker, the other day I was watching an old movie, it was Dracula vs Billy the Kid, it was pretty good, I really enjoy it, and my question is, has it ever occured to you write a Old Western-Vampire book?

I don't think I've ever heard of Dracula vs. Billy the Kid. But, to answer your question, I have thought writing an Old West-vampire book. Others have also suggested it, but I've never been able to come up with a decent plot. Maybe one of these days....Mandy 10/10/12

Hi Mandy, it amazes me that you don't get to choose your book covers! I have loved all the covers you have and like most book covers that my favorite authors have but it's still too bad. On another note, have you ever seen the TV show, Once Upon a Time? I've heard it's very good and have been thinking about buying the first season. ~ Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ I have on occasion suggested what I'd like to see on a cover, but mainly it's the art department's decision. As for Once Upon a Time, yes, I've seen it. I love it! Mandy 10/6/12

Hello Mandy, I have a question for you, are you able to pick what your book covers look like? I had asked another author this and she said that she has no choice in what cover is officially used. Just a curious thing for me, you write the book it seems only fair that you are able to choose the cover that represents it. Thank You, Dawn BTW Love the book marks and book covers!!! Thanks so much!

Hi Dawn ~ Sadly, most authors don't have much say in their covers, at least not the ones I know. For my upcoming book, As Twilight Falls, my editor sent me 2 different covers and asked me which one I preferred. I said the onel with the red background. You can see the other one on the Twilight web page. I'm not sure what would have happened if I had liked the other one.....since I think they'd already decided to go with the one I fortunately liked the best Glad you like the bookmarks and covers. Mandy 10/5/12

Hi Amanda,
I was wondering if you have any plans to put any vampires in a historical setting like A Darker Dream?
Thanks, Bobbie

Hi Bobbie ~ Actually, I am hoping to write another historical vampire, if I can come up with an idea. I even had the option written into my contract! Mandy 9/30/12

Mandy,
Don't know if you know! there is a new Johnny Depp movie out there a bit of a horror comedy called Dark Shadows, he plays a Vampire Iíve only seen a few moments of it - Iím watching it with s friend now but I dear say it might be your cup of tea! I just had to let you know about it. just in case you were interested.
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I saw Dark Shadows. It was cute! Mandy, who just bought the Avengers. 9/25/12

Hello Amanda!
I'm a big fan of your vampire books, and your story The Captive is one of my fav. Your work reminds me of Victoria Holt, (I love her stories too!) I would love to enter your sept. contest....do I need to do anything??
Have a great day!
S

Hi S ~ I'm so glad you enjoyed The Captive. It was a fun story to write, different from my usual stuff. Ah, Victoria Holt. I've read a number of her books. Awesome! As for my contest, you're in. Best of luck!!! Mandy 9/18/12

Hi Amanda,
Your story 'His Dark Embrace', is it a stand alone story or is it a part of a series like 'Shades of Grey'?

Hi ~ His Dark Embrace is a stand alone book. Mandy 9/13/12

Hi Amanda!! I just wanted to thank you for all the great books you have added to my book shelf. I own every one of your books and refuse to part with them. "A Darker Dream" was my first ever Vampire Romance and still my all time favorite. I have read and re-read that one at least 100 times. Thanks again for all the great reads!! Oh...thanks for splashing Ian Somerholder on your site...that man is way to sexy! LOL. Bobbie

Hi Bobbie ~ First off, I have to say, you can't see too much of Ian!!!! That man drips sex appeal. Secondly, I have to also agree about A Darker Dream. It's still one of my favorite stories, and Rayven remains one of my favorite heroes. A Darker Dream should be available on Kindle in the future, although I'm not sure how soon that will happen. Have a blessed Sabbath. Mandy 9/9/12

Hello Mandy, thank you for the information on the convention. I also got my signed book cover and book marks in the mail today! Thank You so much they are all great! Do you have any Bound by Blood or Bound by Night book covers? I would love both, I could send you a prestamped envolope if you want too. Thank You so much for answering all my question too! Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ I think I have covers for both Bound books. Email me your address again. I don't remember if I kept it or not. Have a blessed Sabbath. Mandy 9/9/12

Hello Mandy, I'm afraid to fly also. I haven't ever been on a plane and the thought is a little scary, but I think it could be very fun as well. I hope to travel in the future so I will end up flying sometime. Do you do any conventions or yearly gatherings in CA to sign books? Thank You. Dawn

There aren't any yearly conventions in CA. There are booksellers conventions that are held yearly, but they're held in different locations each year. The annual Romance Writers of America held an event here this year, but it's also held in a different location from year to year. Mandy 9/6/12

Hello Mandy, Thank You so much! I can't wait to get them. =) I hope you have a great week also. Do you ever do book signings in Minnesota? If so where? Thank You, Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ Since I'm afraid to fly, I rarely get out of CA Mandy 9/6/12

Hello Mandy,
I read some of the other posts on here and I would also like an autograph. I just sent you an email with my information. You are an amazing writter, thank you so much for sharing your talent with us! Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ I received your email. The cover will be in the mail ASAP. Have a great week. Mandy 9/4/12

Thank you, I look forward to getting them soon! I was wondering if you do book signings in Ohio, around Toledo?

Sorry, no, I don't get out that way. Have a wonderful holiday. Mandy 9/1/12

Hi Mandy,
I probably should have mentioned It was intended to be funny, it is also too late to change for me too (though perhaps not as much as you) as W.O.S is the novel I entered into the contest last year the first chapter of the book has been published on the harlequin online contest page - plus there's a few youtube vids about it out there too - It was a joke as you've said in the past that you'd wished you'd thought of the title Waiting On Sundown, and now Iím saying it about one of yours. It seemed amusing at the time. LOL Sorry for the confusion :)
Ella

HI Ella - no problem. I knew you were kidding :) Have a great holiday. Mandy 9/1/12


My Apologies I just realized my error. "As Twilight falls' not ĎWhen theí I am sorry.
Ella

No worries, Ella. Mandy 8/31/12

Hi Mandy - I love the Cover of When Twilight Falls. - love the title. Trade You? 'When Twilight Falls' For my 'Waiting On Sundown'? ;) hope you are well.
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I love your title. Unfortunately, it's too late to change. My cover is already done. Have a great weekend and holiday. Mandy 8/31/12

Thank you! I sent an email :) ~Danielle Slaughter

Danielle, the cover and bookmarks are in the mail. Mandy 8/31/12

An autographed book cover would be great if possible a bookmark too? How do I give you my address?

Hi ~ email your address to me at Darkwritr@aol.com. Be sure to remind me that you want a cover and bookmarks. Mandy 8/29/12

Hello again Amanda. I was wondering if there is any way to get your autograph? I would really appreciate it! ~Danielle Slaughter

Hi again Danielle ~ I can send you an autographed bookmark, or book cover, or you can send me one of your books, together with return postage. Mandy 8/27/12

Hello Amanda. I was wondering what made you start writing about vampires? I love reading your books and own almost every one of them :) - Danielle Slaughter 8/21/12

Hi Danielle ~ My agent asked me if I'd like to write a short vampire story for an anthology. I'd never written one before, but it sounded like fun, so I wrote Masquerade. I've been writing vampires, and loving them, ever since. Hapyy to know you enjoy them :) Mandy 8/21/12

Hi Amanda when does the contest end. I'm excited to see if i win

My contests run from the first of every month to the end of the month. Mandy 8/12/12

Thanks for the contest. Would love to win one of your books.

Good luck to you! Mandy 8/12/12

Hi Mandy! I am so excited to be the July contest winner! Can't wait to get my goodies in the mail! Thanks so much!!
-Cynthia

Hi Cynthia ~ Will get your "goodies" in the mail ASAP Mandy 8/1/12

Hi Mandy, I was wondering how are we supposed to enter for your monthly contests? Thanks, Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ You just did it. All you have to do to enter my contest is sign my guestbook. Good luck to you! Mandy 7/29/12

Hi Mandy,
No we don't have the show ĎGrimmí here where I live, bit sad really it sounds good.
We are also really behind you guys with the ĎOUATí show too we only just got to see the ĎSkin Deepí ep about Rumpleskin the Tuesday just passed. Though great news for ĎOUATí fans here itís on Sunday Monday and Tuesday this week. Can't wait for that!
If Iím right you guys have seen all of series 1 and are waiting the beginning of series 2...
Ella

Hi Ella ~ Bummer about Grimm. Yes, we're awaiting Seasson 2 of OUAT. Should be really interesting this year. I also love Longmire and The Mentalist. Mandy 7/29/12

Hi, Mandy
I'm really enjoying His Dark Embrace! Your heroes are exquisite I love how they are not perfect have darker issues but they are never truly evil.
Do you watch the show called Once Upon A Time? Do you like the characters Rumpelstiltskin and Belle. Itís a nice little take on the beauty and the beast story. I'm debating with my friend on how bad he thinks Rumpelstiltskin is, I myself think he's man thrown into desperate action by despair and not someone who has truly gone bad.
Iím hoping for a happy ending for them.
Hope all is well with you and your family.
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I'm glad you're enjoying His Dark Embrace. As for Once Upon a Time, I love it!!! And I'm fascinated by Rumpelstilskin. Can't wait for the new season. I came into it late, but now I'm hooked. I also love Grimm. Do you watch that one? Mandy 7/26/12

Hello Mandy, I hope you are able to find a workable plot for another 'Everlasting' book. I truly love those two books and the two 'Bound' books! I woud love to see another 'Bound' book, thank you for writing them! I too wanted to thank you for your tastefully done love scenes, it was a nice surprise the first time I read one of your books. I quickly became a fan of yours and had to buy several books of your for my Nook. Thank You! Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ If I can come up with plots for either one or both, you can be sure a book will follow. Mandy 7/26/12

I can't find the answer. I just finished Everlasting Kiss, are you going to do a part 2 of that book or one about Rhys. I have looked all over but cannot find another book after Everlasting Kiss. Great book and I want to thank you for writing the love scenes so tastefully. I have been reading YA because the adult paranormal has been so graphic during the love scenes almost gratuitousness. Great story, Daisy was a great heroine and I loved all the characters. Thank you.

The sequel to Everlasting Kiss is titled Everlasting Desire and is available now. As for my love scenes, you can be sure you will never read anything erotic or "over the top" - in any of my books. I'm happy to know you enjoyed Everlasting Kiss. Mandy 7/25/12

Hello, thank you so much for answering my question and it makes a lot of sense now. I couldn't find the book anywhere even though it said it should have been released on the 15 of July. I have another question, have you ever considered writing another book related to "Everlasting Kiss" and "Everlasting Desire"?

Hi ~ Yes, I've considered it, but I haven't been able to come up with a workable plot. Maybe one of these days...... Mandy 7/25/12

Hello, I have a question regarding a book I seen on Barnes and Noble, but can't seem to find it on your website. "Blood and Moonlight". Are you still going to have a short story in it and do you know when it will be released? Dawn

Hi Dawn ~ As far as I know, there are no plans to publish "Blood and Moonlight" since the publisher has gone out of business. My short story in the anthology - Masquerade - was published previously in the anthology "After Twilight". Mandy 7/24/12

No worries - sorry I asked the same question I didn't realise I had till I read back on it. Canít wait to see it either looks really good! Canít wait to see the family part of the story and their daughter growing so fast. That part of the story is really intriguing and though bound to have been tricky to achieve on film. Canít wait to see it! Ella
P.S read old post and I agree you're book in film would be FANTASTIC!

Hi Ella ~ I've seen it now. Thanks for the link. It gave me chills. Can't wait!!!!! Mandy 7/3/12

Hi, I have His Dark Embrace on order they have to ship it from the U.S but Iíll finally have a copy - it's one of the most highly anticipated book of yours Iíve wanted to read in a long time - I cherish all your books but I have to confess there are a few Iíve loved more. Canít wait to read it! A friend and I went to see the Snow White and the Huntsman - have you seen it? What did you think? It was alright in my opinion however I do think they could have done a little better. Also have you seen the trailer for the Twilight final? Looks incredible.
Ella

Hi Ella ~ I hope you enjoy His Dark Embrace. I have to admit I like some of my books more than others, too, so don't worry about it. I did see Snow White. I also thought it could have been better, but I mainly went to see it because the guy who plays Thor was in it. Am looking forward to the last Twilight. Should be good! Mandy 7/2/12

Dear Favorite Author EVER!
Just thought I'd let you know that I absolutely love ALL of your books! I also enjoy how your mortal ladies are always describing the food that they are eating!! YUMM!! Would love for your books to be made into movies!

Hi ~ I'm so happy to know you've enjoyed by books. Thanks for your comment re what my ladies are eating. I've always wondered if it was necessary, interesting, or just boring. You're the first one to ever comment on it I'd love to see my books made into movies. If anyone out there has a connection to Ho
