Pam Halter
Writing Editing Serving

Welcome to my website!

As an author, I'm honored to have had my writing published and am looking forward to more projects in print. It's my goal to show God's truths in story form. I work hard to never preach, but to engage and entertain my readers. I'm also learning about myself as I go along.

As an editor, I'm here to help and encourage you. I have been on this writing journey since 1994 and have gleaned a lot along the way. What do you need? If you are a new author and need a fresh pair of eyes, I can read your manuscript and give you notes, examples and encouragement. If you're experienced and need some feedback, I can help strengthen your story. Check out the editing page.

As a parent, I know it's not an easy thing, raising a child with special needs. Many days I feel isolated, tired, frustrated, and sometimes angry. We can encourage each other when the days are heavy and we can rejoice when they are light. If you're the parent of a special needs child and are feeling overwhelmed and need support from someone who understands, please visit my blog.

As an inspirational fantasy novelist, I'm always learning. If you're a Christian who writes fantasy, reads fantasy, or wonders if a Christian should even enjoy fantasy, this is the place to talk about it. I'm looking forward to some great discussion!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have blessed you in some small way today.

COVER REVEAL - Seaspoken
Tuesday, March 30, 2021

hey FFFers! I have a fabulous shiny new cover to share with you today! One of my favorite authors, Sarah Delena White, has written SEASPOKEN, which looks TERRIFIC!

 

                                                                   

 

Check out the premise: 

An ocean consumed by rage. A challenge that demands blood. A love that defies everything.

Battle-hardened warrior Evya Atathari longs for a truce between her sea-dwelling tribe and the elven invaders. But her mother, the powerful and vengeful Seamother, will stop at nothing to see the elves destroyed. 

Then the Seamother enacts a brutal rite of challenge for Evya’s hand to gain a powerful ally in the war. But even as the greatest warriors of the sea vie for her favor, her heart is captured by a man who should be her mortal enemy.

Keliveth Dalzana is a failed prophet of the elven king’s court—until a vision leads him to Evya and a chance at ending the war. Drawn to Keliveth’s idealism, Evya agrees to help him win the deadly contest for her hand and establish a peace treaty through their marriage. Together, they dare to dream of a better future.

But when their own peoples turn against them, Keliveth and Evya must find the courage to embrace their true destinies—and decide how great a price they can pay for their love.

 

Doesn’t that sound exciting?? 

Before I show you the COVER, here’s a little more about Sarah:

Sarah Delena White was raised by wolves in an alternate dimension. She writes eclectic speculative fiction that reworks mythology with a fine balance of poetry and snark. She's an experienced world traveler who loves to weave world folklore and ancient concepts into vibrant, original story worlds. She is the administrative manager for Uncommon Universes Press and the creative mind behind Elven Mercantile. When she’s not writing, she can be found exploring enchanted forests and seeking to create the perfect latte. She can be bribed with dark chocolate.

Sarah also makes beautiful beaded jewelry! I have several pieces. Here are just a few:

I'M DOING SOMETHING NEW
Tuesday, March 16, 2021

hey FFFers! How’s everyone doing? I’ve been using the slow down time the pandemic caused to evaluate what I’m doing and not doing. And I’ve decided to try something new.

I’m going to use my NEWS PAGE HERE as a newsletter. Those of you who know me know technology and I do not always play well together, right? But I do know my website, and I thought why not? I don’t have to learn anything new and I can still get news out to anyone who is interested!

So here’s the deal: if you would like an email with the link to my News page whenever I post something new, please contact me here, through my website. Let me know you want to be added and give me your email address. I promise I won’t blow up your email.  haha!

IMPORTANT: you can’t subscribe anymore. I don’t have Mail Chimp, so I need you to contact me directly. The contact is to the left of the subscribe link. Thanks!

And I’d like to share my newest news with you here (it’s also on my News page along with other information and specials).

WILLOUGHBY IS WORKING ON A NEW PROJECT! 

He went to DE to work with his publisher, Candy Abbott, www.fruitbearer.com and he wants to share some pictures of the process. The work is almost done and he can’t wait to share it with you when it’s ready!

 

 

                                                                 

 

                                  

 

I’m also really excited about this project and can hardly wait to share it with you! And I hope you’ll sign up for my news, and please let others know about it, too!  Thank you!

 

                                                         


Blog Tour for LAMENT
Friday, January 29, 2021

Hey FFFers! I’m very happy to be the caboose for the Blog Tour for LAMENT by Laura Zimmerman. It's been a great ride!

Laura is my publishing sister with Love2ReadLove2Write Publishing and I couldn’t be happier! I love all my publishing siblings there. Such a wonderful publishing house!! And an even better editor!!  (<3 Michele)

  https://www.love2readlove2writepublishing.com/ 

                                                             

We writers are usually visual people. Maybe not as much as illustrators, but we not only hear our character’s voices, we know what they look like, too. Laura is no different, and she’s come up with some amazing images of her characters in LAMENT.

Tell us about them, Laura!

 

LLZ: Thanks, sister!

One of my favorite things to do before describing my characters is to scroll through Pinterest to see which looks reflect the character’s personality. It helps me see the characters in my head as they interact with each other as I write. Here are just a few of the characters you’ll meet in Lament!

The OG Fae: You know these guys well! Caoine is our beloved teenage banshee, half-fae/half-human. And this wouldn’t be a story without her best friend Aubree and her boyfriend Oliver! Both are there for her despite her insecurities, which makes her journey into the Unseelie Realm that much more lonely.

                                                          

 

FFF:  Wow! I never thought about looking at Pinterest for story images. I’ll be doing that from now on. And Oliver?  Hubba Hubba!!  hahaha!

LLZ:  I know, right?

The New Fae: When Caoine reaches the Unseelie Realm, she realizes she must learn to trust someone if she’s ever going to get back home. Aibell is the first companion she meets, but this girl doesn’t work alone. Caoine quickly comes to rely on her new friends Laoise, Killian, and Gar. (Even if Gar refuses to smile!)

                                                            

 

FFF: Gar looks EXACTLY like I pictured him! And of course you had to have Legolas!  *swoon*

LLZ: Of course!  *cheesy grin*

 

The Mystery Fae: There are a couple characters that must remain a mystery until you read the story. But I promise these friends aren’t total strangers to you! Clíodhna and Rohan play an important part in Caoine’s future both within the Unseelie Realm and outside of it. Keep an eye out for more of both of them in book three!

                                                            

 

FFF: Well, I love a good mystery! And Rohan … he gives Legolas a run!  haha!  *sheesh*

LLZ: You’re welcome  *wink*

Thanks for meeting a few of my friends! I’d love to hear who your favorite character is from Lament!

FFF: Thanks for joining us! I will let you know my favorite character when I FINALLY get my copy!!  *come ON, Amazon!*

Just looking at these images makes me even more excited to read LAMENT! Of course, I can keep working on my own manuscript while I’m waiting.  *ahem*

Here’s more about Laura! Because she’s fabulous!!  xo

Laura L. Zimmerman lives in a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, three daughters, and three furbaby felines. As a child, she became convinced she was a mermaid, which she still believes to this day. Being a mythological creature, she caught the traveling bug at an early age and spent two and a half years with a missionary organization roaming the world. During her travels she met her Mr. Darcy, and they married soon after. Recently, she and her family moved across the country twice in a ridiculously short amount of time, but she’s happy to report she plans to stay put for a good number of years, thank you very much.

Laura is currently a stay-at-home mom and home educator by day, drinker of coffee by night. Besides writing, she’s passionate about loving Jesus, watching anything Star Wars, and singing loudly. An avid reader, she often has overdue library fines and a TBR pile as tall as Trump Tower.

Her favorite form of writing is flash fiction, which is evident from the number of stories she’s produced on her blog as well as contests she’s entered and even judged! You can catch her in a bookstore, coffee shop, or shoveling popcorn in her mouth at the local movie theater.

Connect with Laura on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or her website, Caffeinated Fiction: https://lauralzimmerman.wordpress.com/ .

She is represented by Cyle Young at Hartline Literary Agency.
