FAQs

 

A general guide for my books: (Keep in mind I started as an e-first published author, with small presses. My word count guidelines are from years of working for them.)

Short Stories:   5,ooo-14,000 words

Short Novella:  15,000-17,000 words

Novella:  18,000-25,000 words

Long Novella: 25,000 – 34,000 words

Category: 35,000- 44,000 words

Novel: 45,000 – 70,000 words

Long Novel: 71,000 – 90,000 words

Plus Sized Novel: 91,000 – 120,000 words

As a general rule of thumb, I do not like putting any of my books that are under 45,000 into print. I made an exception for Tactical Magik because of the demand for it to be in print. It is also prices much lower than my other print books.

 

Each of my books is the length I needed to tell that character’s story. I have never, nor will I ever, force a book to be longer just for the sake of word count. I believe this shows when an author does this. As for my Immortal Ops/ PSI Ops Series books. Not all characters within the world will have full-length books. Take for example, the existing books. Immoral Ops book one is not a full-length book. Nor is Book Four or Five. Each book is the length the character demanded I make the book–the length needed to tell their story.

This holds true for ALL my work. Not just the Ops.

I’ll admit, I’ve been second guessing my upcoming schedule because of the number emails I’m getting regarding book lengths, thinking maybe I should NOT release Colonel Brooks’s novella, maybe I should push all the releases back 6-12 mos or more to force stories to be longer. Then I stop and think… NO. I will not do this. I will stay true to who I am as an author and my readers will respect me for that because I have kickass readers! 

I’d like to take a moment to thank all my readers who for the past ten years have stood by and understood the method to my madness. Who have been so good about waiting as I fought with publisher(s) and continue to fight with some for rights back to work, often leading to long delays between books. I thank you all so much for standing by me in this. I can’t thank you enough for your encouraging emails, for your show of online support, for your fantastic reviews and for buying my books. You all mean the world to me and I hope you love the characters I create as much as I do.

 Paranormal Dark Fantasy Shifter Vampire Romance

 

  Two years ago Rayme Perkins’ life was forever changed. After narrowly escaping a brutal attack, her dreams of being a famous dancer died. The once vibrant young girl, who dreamt of Broadway, has been reduced to serving drinks in a small bar. Rayme had all but given up on finding happiness until a chance meeting with two mysterious strangers turns her world upside down. Now she has the leader of the local werewolf pack and the head of the local vampires hot on her heels. They want her and what she brings to the table—mostly, they want her in their beds. Rayme must choose who will stand by her side in this fight for her very soul.

Rating: This story contains mature situations, graphic violence, strong language, explicit sex, and a women's love for multiple men. It is not intended for the faint of heart.

I'll have some Young Adult titles releasing in the next year. They be part of The Raven Book's new YA imprint called Nevermore. They'll be under pen names so that no children end up buying any of my Mandy M Roth books. I'll post more as the dates get closer!
