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 - Quell the Nightingale
Thursday, July 29, 2021

hey, FFFers! I have a fabulous, new, shiny, exciting cover to reveal today! IT’S SO COOL!!

But first, a little about the story, Quell the Nightingale by Michele Israel Harper.

 

                                                                   

 

Huntress Ro LeFèvre races back to France with one thought on her mind: get there before her niece succumbs to a sleeping curse—a niece she didn’t even know she had.

Ro must use all her skills as a huntress to find the enchantress responsible before the child reaches the point of no return, before she is crushed by the curse’s power and never wakes again.

Thanks to her extended time fighting the sirens, she hasn’t much time.

Trapped in a tower with a feisty girl who is far too protective of her pet swans and her enormous coils of hair, Ro’s heart is shattered when the mysterious empress known only as the Nightingale keeps Ro from her goal, toying with her as though she has all the time in the world to waste.

Where is the blasted Queen of the Fairies when Ro needs her most?

This charming and nonstop adventure is a Wild Swans, Rapunzel, and Nightingale mashup, with hints of “The Ballad of Mulan,” and is the third book in the Beast Hunters series.

 

Doesn't that sound fun and fabulous??

Blog Tour for AZRIEL
Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Hey FFFers! I’m super excited to be part of the Blog Tour for my new publishing sister, Lee James, and her debut novel AZRIEL, which releasese TODAY!!  

                                                                    

The back cover copy (see below) will tell you about the story plot, so I won’t repeat it. Instead, I’ll share my reaction to the story.

The first thing I found interesting was Bree’s age. She’s 30 years old, which is unusual for most novels. The main characters are typically younger. That made her special right away to me.

The more I read, the more Biblical themes and things were woven into the story. After a while, it became like a treasure hunt when I recognized a story or character from the Old Testament. The story doesn’t read like Scripture, though, and none of it felt thrown in to make the story “Christian.” It was simply organic to the storyworld.

I felt Bree’s pain as she struggled to do what she promised so she would be set free from her debt, but I knew – felt – before she did that she had been deceived. That didn’t stop me from grieving with her when she finally learned it.

I seriously had trouble putting the book down. I stayed up waaaaay too late reading it. I thought about it all day (I typically read for pleasure at night before turning off the light) and felt anxious to get back to the story. Like I was missing something, or maybe Bree was in trouble and I wanted to help! Goodness! The curse of an over-active imagination. Haha!

 All the characters were well developed, the plot engaging, the story fascinating, the author’s voice unique. I have to admit, I had to get used to her writing style, but that only took a few pages and then I was HOOKED. Actually, I was hooked even before I got used to her voice. And can I tell you how cool that is? Because if I have trouble adjusting to an author’s voice, I don’t keep reading. But Lee James grabbed my heart right away and I had to keep going.

Even the quiet romance was intriguing to me and beautiful in that is wasn’t the same kind of romance we’re used to seeing in a novel. Even my own.

Action, suspense, mystery, lies, truth, horror, miracles, and more fill this novel that feels more like a long-time master storyteller wrote it than a debut author.

My first thought when I finished was when can I get my hands on the next book?  Haha!

Congrats to Lee James and Michele Harper. The addition of AZRIEL to Love2ReadLove2Write Publishing is a delight!

Back Cover Copy

 Bree Faro learns early in life that she can only depend on herself. Due to her feisty nature and unusual ability with a sword, she is educated in every fighting style imaginable and excels at them all. When she’s sent to infiltrate the city of Azriel, Bree does not expect to find her place among the Watchmen of the Keep, but they welcome her as one of their own. Little does Bree know that her new companions are in danger. An immortal creature lies in wait for any Keeper of the Flame, the city’s water source has dried up, and they are under constant attack from the Yirtzi—former Watchmen reduced to vengeful spirits, who sold their souls for power only to realize the enemy of Yahweh does not translate to the friend of mankind. Not only that, but the Watchmen are fraying. Hostilities come to a head when a Watchman is murdered. Only a Watchman can kill another Watchman, and all eyes shift to Bree. Bree finds herself faced with a choice. Does she engineer the betrayal of the powerful city, or does she embrace her destiny as a true Watchman of Yahweh and find the killer before it’s too late?

 

Doesn’t that sound fabulous??  And guess what?  YOU CAN GET IT TODAY!!!!  WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

 

     

Lee James writes stories of hope and redemption. Whether she creates fantasy, mystery, or historical fiction, her beautifully awkward characters traverse a dark labyrinth on their journey to a hopeful end. Her work is dedicated to sharing the beauty of Christ, one faith infused project at a time.

COVER REVEAL - The King's Spell
Thursday, June 10, 2021

hey FFFers! I have a shiny new fabulous cover to show you!! 

                                                      THE KING’S SPELL by E.J. Kitchens

                                                                         

BUT FIRST … a little about the book. 

Only a king can banish sorcerers and strip enchanters of their power. Only a king is immune to spells and potions. Only a king knows the truth behind the legends. Until now.

Magic Collector Devryn Ashby may have deserved the curse that saps his magic-manipulating abilities, but it certainly won’t help him with the task King Reginald has assigned him. Instead of allowing him to continue hunting for those who stole the powerful Enchanter’s List, the king makes Devryn trainer-in-magic to the mischievous enchantress Lady Meredith Lofton.

Except for an occasional matchmaking exploit, Lady Meredith has little use for her power of enchantment—until the king asks her to train in magical warfare techniques. This both excites and terrifies her. And irks her, for she refuses to be bossed around by the critical Devryn Ashby, a man she’s not even sure she should trust. 

But as dangers increase and the sorcerers’ schemes unfold, Devryn and Meredith must choose whom to follow—their own desires and prejudices or their king. Only a king knows how much the kingdom depends on their choice.

 

 

WOW! It sounds fabulous!!

Are you ready for the amazing cover??
