Shifters and Vampires and Shadows, oh my! Or...What's New with Pamela Palmer
by Pamela Palmer
Contest winner: Congrats to Jerri Mooring!
I'm finally settling down after a whirlwind spring filled with a book deadline, a book release, and three fabulous reader conventions, one of which was in Europe. Whew! It's time to stay put for awhile and write.
The book that just came out: A Kiss of Blood. This is the second book in my new Vamp City series and it released June 25th to great reviews. This one reveals a slightly gentler side of Washington, V.C. (Vamp City). Perhaps a 'slightly less dark side' would be more accurate. You'll also see another side of Arturo Mazza, the vampire hero/anti-hero of book 1. In her review, Jeaniene Frost says, "If Palmer would’ve told me before I read A Kiss Of Blood, “You’ll like Arturo by the end of this,” I would have bet her my car that she was wrong. For the record, if I would’ve made that bet, I’d owe Pamela Palmer a Jeep Cherokee. I heartily recommend A Kiss Of Blood."
The book deadline that had me scrambling this spring was for the eighth and final book in my Feral Warriors series, Wulfe Untamed. Finally, Wulfe is going to get his story, and it's a rip-roaring ride of a tale that concludes the Daemon Blade story arc. I fully intend to write more Feral Warriors stories in the future--I adore my guys, and both Vhyper and Grizz are going to come after me if I don't--but this current story is coming to an end.
Now I'm back to writing and I'm working on two stories simultaneously, with a third trying to catch my eye from the shadows. The first is another Vamp City novella, my second from this world. This one, a romance centering around new characters, will actually be a prequel to the main story. This will be my first foray into self-publishing, a venture I've been wanting to try.
I'm also looking over my notes and re-reading the first two books in the Vamp City series in preparation for diving into book 3 the moment the novella's complete. The main VC story, Quinn's and Arturo's, is going to take four to five books to tell. I think! I know where we're going but, as usual, I'm not entirely sure how many words it will take me to take to get there.
And the story hovering in the shadows? You'll have to wait a bit to hear more about that one because even I'm not entirely sure what's there. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a departure from what I've been writing, but how much of one is yet to be seen.
That's what's up with me!
I've got a signed copy of A Love Untamed to give away. For a chance to win, just leave a comment. If you can't think of anything to write, tell me what you're reading right now. And if you would, leave your email address so I can contact you if you win. I'll choose the winner on Wednesday, July 17th.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
