Mandy Lou Dowson was born and raised in a small town in Ireland, in 1983. Family is a huge deal to Mandy. She has three wonderful children, and two dogs - a Siberian Husky who only does what she’s told if there’s something in it for her, and a little white Pomeranian who loves nothing better than to roll in mud, or worse.
In her spare time, she likes to relax with a few glasses of wine and some karaoke. She has a keen interest in special effects make-up and is part of a dramatical society which puts on one show and one concert each year.
Mandy started reading at quite a young age and her appetite for the written word has only increased with time. It would not be at all surprising t

Hi Amber, and thanks for asking.

It depends on how intricate the story is, and how often my characters misbehave on paper. Sometimes I can get the bare bones of the story down in a couple of months, and spend another couple with edits and re-writes.
But what I'm working on now (super secret contemporary/taboo romance) has written itself in fast-forward. I literally started it last Saturday morning and am about 5 chapters from the end right now.
I also wrote the second in the Moon Bound series between the start and end of Sept. I guess practice makes perfect, so I'm getting quicker? lol
I still have a few edits left to do on Bound by Revenge, once the last round of Betas get back to me :) (less)

In fact, some of them were so enamoured of my book that they've joined my street team and have just Beta Read the second book in the series :) (less)

Retribution - May 4th

I have a dark romance coming out on May 4th. Perhaps you've heard of it? Perhaps not.
It's called Retribution and it follows the view point of three people.

Braxton Alexander - He's been imprisoned for the rape and murder of his girlfriend since he was eighteen, but now he's free.

Brycen Cole - Since Braxton's threat at the sentencing, he's known the madman would come after him upon release.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, April! And thank you so much for the fab review! I'm always slightly terrified as well as elated when I see someone say they're reading it...as I've said before, it's like having a new baby and hoping nobody thinks it has a pointy head :P

And as for good laughs...we'll have to bring needles and thread to discussions to stop our sides splitting hehe


April   ♥"LOS" ♥ So I finished Bound By Fate, and I loved it. I posted my review on GR and Amazon. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series:)


Renégade ♥ Hey Mandy Lou - Thanks for the friend request and your sweet message too! *grin* Looking forward to chatting with you about great books and more in future - I sense we've got some good laughs ahead! :)

Well, it's just a bit of exposure, really, April. Plus there's a chance to win some SWAG (readers LOVE that!) and a free copy of my book. :D
