Next Stop: Vamp City!

June 23, 2015 · 14 Comments

OfBloodandPassion_600x900Fasten your seatbelts! It’s less than a month, now, until the July 14th release of Of Blood and Passion, the final book in the Vamp City saga and the climactic ending to the story NY Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks calls, “An amazing action-packed series”!

From the back cover:

They call her the last sorceress: Quinn Lennox, the only hope of the vampires who are trapped in Vamp City watching their dark otherworld slowly die. But an ancient curse shackles the magic Quinn needs to save not only the vampires she’s come to call friends, come to care for, come to love, but her beloved brother as well. Arturo Mazza, the ruthless vampire who once betrayed Quinn, and has since waged a steady and relentless war upon her heart, vows to help her break the curse. But when the mission requires them to face Cristoff Gonzaga—the brutal and vicious vampire to whom Arturo once pledged undying fealty—Quinn must find a trust in Arturo that will test the very foundations of her soul.

Pre-orders are now available for Kindle and iBooks!

I’ve posted the first chapter of Of Blood and Passion on my website. After you’ve read it, be sure to enter the contest (also on my website) for a chance to win a signed copy of A Kiss of Blood, the second book in my Vamp City series, and Wulfe Untamed, the final book in my Feral Warriors series.

Attention: Bloggers. If you reviewed one or both of the previous Vamp City books on your blog and are interested in reviewing Of Blood and Passion, please email me at Pamela@pamelapalmer.net, subject line: Vamp City Blogger. I’ll have a free download ready for you as soon as it releases!

And because a lot of you have been asking what I’m working on, I’ll be posting again in a day or two to tell you. (I know, don’t faint. Two blog posts from me in one week!) Stay tuned.

And enjoy the summer!

Vamp City news!

March 24, 2015 · 4 Comments

At last, the third and final book in the Vamp City series, Of Blood and Passion, is done! Better yet, it’s coming out this summer! As soon as I know the exact date, I’ll let you know. Here’s a brief hint of what it will be about:

In the gripping conclusion to the Vamp City trilogy, sorceress Quinn Lennox and vampire Arturo Mazza battle the dangerously powerful vampire master, Cristoff Gonzaga, in a desperate attempt to save both of their worlds. As Vamp City crumbles around them, their only chance of survival demands an unconditional trust that will test the very foundation of Quinn’s soul, and surrender to a powerful love neither can deny.

I know what some of you are thinking. “She said the series would be four or five books.” Umm, yes. It happened again. I thought the Feral Warriors series would probably be nine or ten books and it wound up being eight. And my explanation for that miscount still holds true. I never know how long it’s going to take to tell a multi-book story until I get near the end of it. I’m great with individual books. I intuitively know how to spin a tale of the correct length for a novel or novella…thank goodness. But when it comes to a longer series, I’m in the dark. I always have so many ideas when I start that I’m certain it’s going to take books and books to tell. But stories have a natural rhythm and once you hit that point where it begins to race toward the climax, you have to let go and let it happen. And that point snuck up on me…again. But, honestly, I love it when that happens–when the characters rip the story reins out of my hands and take off with it on their own. It’s always the best ride!

So, what am I working on, now? As I’ve mentioned before, I’m switching gears, slightly. I’m currently writing a supernatural thriller series with romantic elements. I adore the concept and story and I’m in already in love with the characters. But it’s taking more time than I’d anticipated. Not only does a contemporary thriller require a lot more research than my paranormals (I can’t make it all up), but there’s a learning curve involved in switching genres. I know Romances well. Thrillers and I are still getting acquainted. But that is happening, more and more each day. We’re slowly becoming good friends. And I promise you, when this book is everything I want it to be, you’ll be the first to hear all about it.

If you happen to be in the Washington, D.C. area May 2nd, I’ll be at the Great Falls Library for a couple of events that day—a panel on how to get published in the morning and a ‘Meet the Local Authors’ and book signing in the evening. All the information is on my website here. If you can attend, feel free to bring books from home, to either session. I’ll sign whatever you bring!

 Think spring!

Release Day! A Kiss of Blood

June 25, 2013 · 23 Comments

kisslowres_276Book 2 in my dark paranormal Vamp City series, the sequel to last year’s A Blood Seduction, is finally here! New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost says, “A Kiss Of Blood took everything about the characters and world and turned them on their head. I loved A Kiss of Blood and I can’t wait to see what happens next in book three.”

From the back cover:

One of the few humans who managed to escape the deadly twilight world of Vamp City, Quinn Lennox vows to never return. But the vampires want her back, for only she has the power to renew the magic of their crumbling world–and free the vampires trapped within.seduction_350

When the handsome, dangerous, and all too seductive Arturo Mazza comes for her, Quinn knows she can never trust him after the betrayal she suffered at his hands. But with her beloved brother’s fate hanging in the balance, and her own power beginning to emerge, she chooses to risk all on yet another perilous journey back to Vamp City. And though she tries to deny it, her heart begins to hold hope that even a ruthless vampire can learn the meaning of true love….

Cover Reveal! A Blood Seduction

January 6, 2012 · 12 Comments

I can finally share with you the gorgeous cover of my first vampire novel, book 1 of the Vamp City series, A BLOOD SEDUCTION!

A Blood Seduction hits bookshelves (and ereaders) May 29th!

From the back cover:

Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city’s magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal world…one who knows nothing of the power she wields. Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see–and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her. What Arturo can’t do is forget about her–any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission–his to save his people, hers to save herself. But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red. Welcome to Vamp City…

 

Welcome!

October 3, 2011 · 72 Comments


Welcome to my inaugural blog! I’ve blogged before, don’t get me wrong, but this is the first time I’ve had a blog of my own. It’s time. I have things to share and I need my own place to post them. Speaking of which, I’m throwing a pajama party at Feral House and you’re all invited! Trivia questions with tons of book prizes, tiny teasers from Ecstasy Untamed, and, perhaps, a visit from a Feral or two. Click here for the Invitation. I also have other fun things planned in celebration of the upcoming release of Ecstasy Untamed. Would you like me to send you a signed postcard of the Ecstasy Untamed book cover (anywhere in the world)? Just fill out the form on my website’s Luck page and I’ll get it in the mail.

So, what’s going on in the writing world of Pamela Palmer? A lot. As mentioned, the sixth book in the Feral Warriors shape-shifter series, Ecstasy Untamed, comes out Oct. 25th…just three weeks! This one is Hawke’s book as he battles the ravages of the spirit trap and of his heart when the woman of his dreams arrives at Feral House…the intended mate of the newest Feral. If you can’t wait for the 25th to take a look, the first chapter is on my website, now.

In addition to the Feral Warriors, I’ll be publishing the last two books in my Esri series for Harlequin Nocturne this winter/spring. I’m so glad they’re finally coming out! The series began with The Dark Gate and Dark Deceiver and is the story of the invasion of our world by the immortal, man-sized Esri (the creatures at the heart of the legends of fairies and elves), and the handful of humans immune to Esri enchantment–the only ones who can stop them. Book 3, A Warrior’s Desire, has a January 24th release date, according to Amazon (and Amazon seems to know these things before the authors or publishers). Warrior Rising will be out the end of March. I’ve posted short blurbs of each book on the Coming Next page of my website.

And if that wasn’t enough, I’m starting a brand new vampire series. Book 1 in the Vamp City series, A Blood Seduction, will be out the end of May 2012. This will be my first series with continuing characters in the hero/heroine roles, what I term a multi-book romance. I expect the series (or at least this first romantic arc) to be five books in length. I just finished writing the first book, but I’ve already seen the cover art and it’s gorgeous. As soon as I can show you (probably after the new year), I will!

Meanwhile, I’ve just started writing book 7 in the Feral Warriors series, but you’ll have to wait until December 1st for the reveal of the hero. I’m not telling, yet! My plan is to alternate the Feral Warriors and Vamp City books, so expect plenty more of both.

To kick off this blog in the right way, I think we need a giveaway. What do you think? Tell me how you found me here today (newsletter? Twitter? Facebook?) for a chance to win one of three signed copies of Hunger Untamed. (I use random.org random number generator to choose my winners.)

Thanks for stopping by!
