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.

Willoughby wants kids to know they can join his Dragon Club!  All the details are on Bubble Tree Books’ website! Tell your friends! And have a Dragoniffic day!


Christmas Specials!
Thursday, December 12, 2019

hey FFFers – it’s that time of year, right? So … here are some Christmas specials from me and my friend, Willoughby’s illustrator, Kim Sponaugle.

First, I’m offering Willoughby books for $12 each (normally $14.95) (tax included) and with $3 S&H. I’m including lots of book swag like coloring pages (including Willoughby’s NEW Christmas coloring page!), stickers, and MORE. I promise you’ll be happy with the swag!

                                                        

If you have older kids, or you want one yourself, I’m offering my YA novel, Fairyeater, for $15 (normally $18.99) and $3 S&H. And I’ll include a print of Tzmet’s window!

                                             

 

I’m super excited to show off this next special. Artist Kim Sponaugle has opened up her treasure trove of original finished art for Willoughby Goes A Wee Bit Batty at half price specials! Each piece of art is signed by her, as well. Kim has given us a little info on each piece of art.

 

Ready?

 

In this illustration, Willoughby meets an injured bat named Woodside - (It took some time to figure out how I should render little Woodside. Pam and I both thought the first few versions bordered on a dog with wings! But after several reworks we found the Woodside we love!) Special Price: 125.00

                                                                 

 

Willoughby loves to make new friends and make dragon introductions! Illustration #2 shows friendly Woodside and Daisywings talking about trolls! (I kept the brogue Pam had written for Woodside in mind when I illustrated his expressions - friendly, warm and jovial) Special price:125.00

 

                                                              

 

It takes love and patience to get your confidence back, and Woodside is finally ready to take his solo flight as his friends cheer him on! (We wanted to show teamwork and joy for the effort, in this illustration) Special price: 150.00

 

                                                      

 

This is a character illustration of Mumsie that I used before I began the finished book art. Because Mumsie the Troll was a new character, I needed to be able to consistently draw her, so I always had this illustration before me as I worked. Special price 75.00

 

                                              

 

So there you go. If you’re looking for a personal and unique gift, we hope you’ll consider our specials! If you’re interested, you can email me at [email protected] Make sure to contact me soon for delivery before Christmas!

Wishing you all a blessed and happy Christmas celebration!


Blog Tour - DEAR AUTHOR
Monday, December 9, 2019

 

Hey FFFers! I’m wild with delight to introduce you to this DEBUT book by Laura A. Grace!

It’s not a novel. It’s not a book of short stories. It’s not a collection of poems.

WHAT IS IT??

It’s an incredibly unique set of LETTERS written by a FANGIRL (Laura) to AUTHORS. Any author! Seriously! There’s a letter for an author at every stage of their career.

Since this book is so unique, I wanted to do a unique interview. So … I’ll be interviewing …

MYSELF!!

Ready?

 

FFF: hey, Pam!

PH: hey – so, this is weird.

FFF: I know, right?

PH: heh, heh, heh … you’re such a dork.

FFF: Takes one. Okay, so how do you want to do this?

PH: Let’s start out with how I know Laura. I “met” Laura A. Grace (Laura Pol) in the Realm Makers Consortium on Facebook. She is the most encouraging person I know. So young and sweet! Which usually bugs me (haha) but with Laura, it’s different. She’s genuine, and you can tell. And the longer I know her, the more loved I feel, which makes me love her more and more, too!

I got to know her more when I would participate in Blog Tours for other authors. See, Laura’s business, Unicorn Quester, comes alongside of authors and publishing houses to help them with blog tours, book reviews, and marketing. Laura has a gift for this, and it’s so needed as most authors are either clueless about marketing, or they reeeeeeeeeally hate doing it.

FFF: The struggle!

PH: I know! Anyway, when my debut novel, Fairyeater, came out through Love2ReadLove2Write Publishing (www.love2readlove2writepublishing.com), they hired Laura to organize the blog tour. She’s efficient, organized, and super helpful! I had a GREAT blog tour!

FFF: Yep, I was part of that.

PH: You were! Thanks!

FFF: Welcome! So, what did you think when Laura said she was writing a book for authors?

PH: I was excited for her, and excited to see what she came up with. She’s so creative!

FFF: You signed up to read an ARC, right? What did you think?


PH: Ya know, it’s always a nerve-wracking thing to read a friend’s stuff. You hope and pray you’ll, at least, like it! But I loved, loved, LOVED, Laura’s book, DEAR AUTHOR!

                                                                         

FFF: It sounds like a book at directly addresses authors.

PH: It is – but it’s super unique. DEAR AUTHOR is just what it sounds like, a book of letters written to authors. There’s not a book like it out there! The layout is simple, with one letter per 2 pages. Each one is directed at a specific author, and no one is left out.

FFF: What does that mean, no one is left out?

PH: There are letters for debut authors, struggling authors, authors who are brand new to learning the craft, as well as authors who have been in the business for a long time. And several more besides!

FFF: I see it’s illustrated.

PH: Ohmygosh! Such CUTE illustrations! I’d show you, but I’d rather encourage you to buy the book and see for yourself.

FFF: I actually HAVE purchased one, and yep, they’re super cute!!

PH: I agree.

FFF: Will you share with us something fun Laura helped you with for Fairyeater?

PH: sure – check this out – Laura became a fairyeater and took a picture! She also did a video book review! That was GREAT fun.

                                                                     

FFF: Thanks for, uh, stopping by, Pam. I know my readers will be as delighted as we “both” are about Laura’s book, DEAR AUTHOR.

PH: Thanks for having me!
