SURRENDER is out in audiobook! AudioGals giveaway and more!

A year ago I wouldn’t have imagined that both my I-Team series and MacKinnon’s Rangers series would be available in audiobook. I also wouldn’t have imagined that I would get such a fantastic actor and voice artist to voice both series, someone who would become a close friend. But that’s how it is.

Sometimes, life can be as exciting as fiction!

Surrender (MacKinnon’s Ranger #1) is out today on audiobook. The series is being voiced by Kaleo Griffith, who also narrated the I-Team series. I’ve only listened to about half of the prologue — I’m busy getting ready to leave for Atlanta and still doing copy edits on Striking Distance today — but I loved what I heard, letting out a squeeeeal when I heard his take on Iain MacKinnon.

Here are the links:

To celebrate the release, the wonderful women at AudioGals did a big interview with me — one of the best interviews I’ve ever participated in. They asked lots of questions about why I love historical romance, how I do research and what inspired this series.

AudioGals are also doing a big audiobook giveaway thanks to the wonderful folks at Tantor Audio, which puts out my audiobooks. They’re giving away two SETS of the MacKinnon’s Rangers series on either CD or MP3 disk. So get over there and enter quickly for your chance to win.

Untamed will be available in audiobook format on August 12, while Defiant will be out on August 26.

Very exciting for me! I’ve been an audiobook lover from the days of the first Harry Potter book, so to have my own stories available in this format is a thrill.

Thanks, AudioGals! Thanks, Tantor! And thanks to you, too, Kaleo, for breathing life into my stories!

Now back to copy edits and packing for Atlanta! I’ll be meeting members of the Facebook I-Team group on Saturday for the first-ever I-Team group party, which Kaleo will be attending, too. Can’t wait to meet him and all my I-Team friends in person!

Come to the I-Team party and meet me and Kaleo Griffith!

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last posted anything on this blog.

I did finally finish Striking Distance and turned it in. My editor got back to me last week and said she loved it, which took the weight of the world off my shoulders.  I’m still waiting for a final cover, which, of course, I will share with you. This was one of the toughest books I’ve ever written, very complicated and requiring a lot of nuanced planning, but my editor said it was definitely worth the wait.

Striking Distance will be out on November 5! Watch for excerpts soon!

In the meantime, it somehow became July. Say what?!?! No, seriously. It’s July, and I’m chasing my tail trying to catch up. I’ve spent the better part of two weeks trying to clean and reorganize my office, focusing on the monstrosity that is my desk, and am finally making some progress.

But more than that, I’ve been getting ready for the Romance Writers of America conference being held in Atlanta, Ga., July 17-20. I wanted to invite you to a couple of events.

RWA “Readers for Life” Literacy Book Signing  — Wednesday, July 17, 5:307:30 p.m. in the Atrium Ballroom A-C of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. I’ll be signing books together with more than 400 other authors in a special event that raises thousands of dollars each year that go to literacy signings in the conference’s host state. As a RITA finalist, I’ll get to have a pretty blue flag on my table. I may be doing some audiobook giveaways and coupons courtesy of Tantor Audio at the signing, so if you live in the Atlanta area, please come!

Pamela Clare’s I-Team Party — Join me and Kaleo Griffith, the sexy voice/actor behind the I-Team audiobooks, for a special get-together. Meet us face to face, have us sign your books and audiobooks, and enjoy a tasty buffet and drinks. Space is limited, so RSVP as soon as you can.

Here are the details:

Where: The Media Room of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, 265 Peachtree Center Ave., Atlanta, GA

When: Saturday, July 20, 3-4:30 PM

Admission: $30 per person to cover the cost of the buffet and drinks

RSVP by July 11!

 If you’re already attending RWA as a writer or live in the Atlanta area and are just planning on coming to the public events as a reader, please join us!

In the meantime, I wish you a Happy Fourth of July if you live here in the U.S. and hope you’re having a great summer!
