GIVEAWAY EVENT - Kicks off at

"Live" Chat

FEBRUARY 19th at 8 PM

 Eastern Standard Time


You and also check them out on Amazon 


Chicago lawyer Sydney Knight and Texas bull rider Jace McGowan have nothing in common but everything to lose when they are thrust together during a weekend rodeo in rural Illinois. Neither one of them would have imagined two years ago that the deep attraction they sensed during a day-long outing would resurface when Sydney's boss assigns her to Jace's legal case. 

Sydney has been through a world of hurt since losing her dad when she was sixteen, then being dumped the morning of her wedding. She's sworn off romance and instead devotes her time toward a partnership in her father's law office. 

Jace has found faith in God and wants out of his sponsor contract with a risqué restaurant chain that requires him to pose with scantily-clad women. He's about to bail on the contract and pay steep penalties—something he can ill afford, given that his deceased father left the family with unpaid taxes. 


ABOUT BOOK: As beautiful Lake Geneva plays host to Chicago's elite in the exciting Big-Band era, aspiring reporter Meg Alden wants to work in a man's world. Will the man who steals her job also win her heart?

It's 1933, and beautiful Lake Geneva is a summertime playground for Chicago's wealthy. Local girl Meg Alden works at the town newspaper, but she aspires to be a real reporter. When a job opens up, Meg spies an opportunity to break into the business -- until Jack Wallace, son of the newspaper's owner, is hired instead. How will Meg ever be able to work with the man who stole her job... and makes her pulse race?

ABOUT AUTHOR: Raised in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, Pamela has published articles in Today's Christian Woman, Christian Computing Magazine, Victory in Grace Magazine, Ancestry Magazine, Christian Fiction Blog Alliance Ezine, and the ACFW Ezine, Afictionado. Her true story, Like Son, Like Father, appeared in His Forever (Adams Media). She has served as a sign language interpreter for her church and is a leader of a women's Bible study group. 

Her author tagline, "Take a Sentimental Journey" describes her stories, both contemporary and historical, as most are centered in small Wisconsin towns.

Just out is If These Walls Could Talk, a novella in Coming Home, A Tiny House Collection. Coming in June, Surprised by Love in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (a reissue of LFY in Lake Geneva, WI). 

Pam now resides in Illinois with her two rescue cats. She's not too far from her native Wisconsin, where you will often see her nosing around for more story ideas.

I do have a bucket list. My main one is to visit a library in every state. It would be fascinating to see small little libraries and then visit a library thst is so big I could stay there for days looking. I’m looking forward to traveling to small towns and large towns. 

Hi Everyone!

Do you love coffee as much as me? For a giveaway this month I'm giving away a pound of Abundant Life Coffee so leave a comment tonight or in the next couple days I'll throw your name in a "hat" to randomly select someone to receive the coffee.

I'm very excited becaust next month on March 27th my new book, Save Refuge, will be released and during next month's chat I'll be holding a drawing for 10 Kindle books to be given away. I'll be looking for some reviews once it's out. It is an inspirational historical romance set in the 1870s. It begins in Chicago at the time of the Great Chicago Fire, then moved to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, my hometown. I love this story and I hope you will too! My beautiful cover is linked below.


The book cover is beautiful. I will have to purchase a copy. When is it available to order?

Isn't the cover gorgeous?  When I saw it for the first time I almost did a Snoopy dance, LOL. After March 27th which is the date my publisher set. I'll let y'all know, but watch Amazon for it to show up.

Congratulations! & yes I love coffee! throw me in the hat please :) thanks
