MyYA historical/paranormal book, OUTSIDE BLESSINGS, is being featured, too. I will be giving away a copy of it. You can sign up at a Rafflecopter giveaway. The event runs from September 7 through September 11, 2020. Winners will be drawn on September 18, 2020.
Outside Blessings is set in Blessings, N.J., a seaside town with dark and dangerous secrets. Neema wants to prove her sister was murdered, that she didn't commit suicide, but the murderer is still out there, still dangerous, and Neema could be the next victim if she asks too many questions. She has a secret, one she dare not divulge, even to Emmett, the young lifeguard she falls in love with.But Emmett has a secret of his own.
One reviewer said of the book, "...Emmett and Neema’s stories begin to weave together. They both understand that feeling of not belonging anywhere. They are outsiders, even among their own families. Emmett is trying to come to terms with who he is and what he wants, just as Neema is working to do the same...I gave this book 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who likes Historical Paranormal Romance..."
“Where’s Jonas?” Ryan and Lewis had seen them coming and ran toward them.
“He’s taking a nap with Edwin,” Margaret explained.
“Why is Edwin napping at this time of the day?” Aunt Sally demanded from the doorway of her house.
“Hobart gave him strong spirits to ease the pain in his leg,” Agnes explained.
“Your mother’s cousin is more trouble than he’s worth,” Aunt Sally pronounced.
“Edwin is nice,” Margaret stated. “Puddles likes him and so does Jonas.”
“They are animals,” Aunt Sally sniffed.
Agnes, Margaret, and the twins stepped into the kitchen. Margaret sliced the bread. Agnes lifted the kettle to pour the tea, but beside her mug on the table lay two pieces of a chain. The one Aunt Sally used to hang her pot over the coals.
“The twins broke that,” Aunt Sally said as she ladled stew into the bowls. “I’ll be needing it fixed by this evening. The stew nearly burned.”
“How did they break it?” Agnes held up the chain and examined each link.
“Ryan did it,” said Lewis.
“Lewis broke it,” said Ryan.
“There will be no trifle for either of you,” Aunt Sally scolded.
The twins lowered their heads and sobbed in perfect unison.
Agnes did not believe they did it. They were so cute and sweet. Too tender to be so destructive. Besides, Aunt Sally seemed to watch over their every move.
Setting the broken chain to the side of her bowl, she sat. Everyone said the blessing, and ate.
Pamela's newest release is MY HEART WEEPS. The story tells of Melena Rhyker who is devastated by her husband's death. Relief comes in the form of an artist's retreat at the Crossed Penn ranch in Utopia, TX. She rediscovers a forgotten dream as her artistic talent flourishes into that of a gallery-worthy artist. Will she have the courage to follow the path she was destined to travel?
Garrett Saunders has been on the run most of his life. Abused and abandoned as a child, he escapes the clutches of a past filled with pain and shame, and hides from his calling as a Native American healer. His years as a CIA agent aid in overcoming his childhood and honing his talent and skill as a fine art photographer.
Follow their journey as two people who come from totally different backgrounds, but share gifts of gigantic proportions, find meaning and purpose in the Texas Hill Country.
And now for an excerpt!
Within moments after Anne left, Melena came in.
“Anne shouldn’t have bothered you.”
“Anne didn’t send me.”
“So why are you here?”
Had she not seen the devastation in his eyes and on his face earlier, Melena would have taken offense at his demeanor. “I wanted to see if you’re all right.”
“I’m not sure how I am right now.”
Concerned at the defeat in his tone, Melena placed her hand on his shoulder. “I know this isn’t the time or place to discuss what happened, but I hate to think of you up here all alone. I need to get back down to the show. Why don’t you come with me?”
“I’m sure my career is over.”
“I wouldn’t say that. There are more people down there who appreciate your work and are much more supportive of the artist they’ve come to know and love—despite never seeing you—than some strange man hell bent on starting a scene.”
“What about your children?”
“My children are among them.”
He turned to her then and her stomach clenched at the depth of shame, anger and sorrow in his expressive eyes. He removed her hand from his shoulder, closed the distance between them with a single step, and cradled her face in his hands. Melena leaned into him and lifted her face, anticipating his kiss. His lips trembled against hers, a soft brush of mouth on mouth as his hands trailed down her neck and shoulders then around her back to embrace her more fully.
Melena’s hands glided up his arms and around his neck, fingers dipped into the dark depths of thick hair caressing his collar, then eased back as he ended the kiss in slow degrees. He buried his face in her hair. A shudder shook his entire frame.
The ache in his voice fisted around her heart. Melena took a step back, held his hand in hers and together they went downstairs.
