The Raven Books

Publisher info

The Raven was founded in 2004 by authors Mandy M. Roth and Michelle M. Pillow. Named after the club in Mandy’s famous Daughter of Darkness series, The Raven began as a place for readers to hang out and follow the free story by Michelle and Mandy, Raven Happy Hour (www.RavenHappyHour.com). It quickly evolved into a yahoo group, radio show, fan site, paranormal blog and so much more. Each October, the site hosts a massive Online Scavenger Hunt, giving away hundreds of prizes by just as many authors.

In Sept 2008, The Raven Books (www.TheRavenBooks.com) was founded as a place to provide a temporary outlet for readers to find favorite, hard-to-get Michelle & Mandy backlist titles. However, due to reader demand, it is evolving to include original, exclusive titles from the authors. The authors are still putting out new titles with their current publishers, so check out their individual websites for complete booklists and information.

Smashwords Interview

Who is The Raven Books vs Raven Happy Hour?
They're basically imprints of the same company--a way for us to keep an even workload when it come to royalty tracking and other boring business related stuff. Really though, The Raven Books and Raven Happy Hour are both Mandy Roth and Michelle Pillow's publishing companies.

The Raven Books (this interview) is about one of the owners, Michelle M. Pillow. Go see Raven Happy Hour for an interview with co-owner, Mandy M. Roth.

This interview is with Michelle:
Who are you and what do you do?
I'm bestselling, award-winning romance author Michelle M. Pillow. -- It always seems strange talking about myself like that because most days I just feel like a girl with a computer. -- I write in a variety of romance fiction genres including futuristic, paranormal, historical, contemporary, fantasy and dark paranormal. I have been all over the publishing world--from traditional "big name" publishers to e-first publishers and now Indie. In 2009 fellow author Mandy M. Roth and I started a highly successful self-publishing endeavor named The Raven Books.

My first book was published April 2004 and called "The Mists of Midnight", a Regency set Ghost Romance. Since then I've published nearly 100 titles, many of which are in their second and third editions. Being prolific is easy when you love your job! Several of the titles have also been published in foreign languages, including Spanish, German, Japanese, etc. And I have titles published with The Raven Books, Pocket Books, Random House, Virgin Books, Adam’s Media, Samhain Publishing, Running Press, and more.

I've been on the Amazon bestseller list multiple times, nominated for the Romantic Times Lifetime Achievement Award 2011, the winner of the 2006 RT Reviewers’ Choice Award, nominated for the 2007 RT Award, a Brava Novella Contest Finalist.
