About Me

My photo
I grew up in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, then lived in Denmark and traveled throughout Europe before coming back to Colorado. I have two adult sons, whom I cherish. I started my writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor of two different papers. Along the way, my team and I won numerous state and several national awards, including the National Journalism Award for Public Service. In 2011, I was awarded the Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for Journalism. Now I write historical romance and contemporary romantic suspense.

On Cloud 9

Sorry I've missed so many days of posting! I've been working on the newspaper's annual election issue — the only time of the year I wish we lived in a monarchy instead of a democratic republic. This is probably the last you'll see of me until after it goes to press on October 10.

But I had to dash in to share some exciting news. Unbeknownst to me, my editor at Berkley sent a copy of Unlawful Contact to romantic suspense superstar Lori Foster, who read it and sent back this quote for the cover: “Powerful, sexy and unforgettable, Unlawful Contact is the kind of story I love to read. Pamela Clare is a dazzling talent.”

Imagine how surprised I was to get the email from my agent with this quote inside. I gave a squeeeeal — but I was at work in the middle of putting a paper to bed. So I had to suck that squeal in and get to work.

I've never met Ms. Foster, but she writes superhot romantic suspense. Her new L.L. Foster paranormal series is just launching with Servant: The Awakening. I know a lot of you are gonzo about paranormals, so check it out. She's got wallpaper and banners for download on her site.

Naturally, I wrote to Ms. Foster to thank her, and she sent a very gracious reply, telling me she thought I had a "huge hit" on my hands. I'm very excited about the book, of course, and can't wait to see it on shelves.

Only 179 days to go...

No worries about being MIA chica, we all know how busy you are doing the "editor-writer-mom" thing simultaniously!

That is wonderful news about the review! I know it's a wonderful book, (and have told you so on numerous occasions LOL) but it's always SO awesome to hear it from one of your peers :)

Casee said...

179 days? Well, I guess it's less than 180. LOL

Congrats on the quote! How exciting that must be. I've always been a big fan of Lori Foster and I'm looking forward to trying her new series.

We've told you, you were a fantastic author and your books are unbelievable!!!! I know it's great to hear it from someone in the industry that doesn't write your type of books! Take care of that paper and come back to play for a little while, OK?
