Back to life



I was going to do a blog post about picking up the pieces of my life and the challenges involved in that — how what was once normal feels so strange, how hard it is to create a day when you’ve forgotten what it feels like to have things to do.

But a strange thing happens.

I started trying to pick up the pieces — and found myself living again.

I am doing much better than in my last blog post. Though I still have some pain in my left chest and arm, probably from radiation, I’m going for walks, hitting the gym, and best of all I am writing again. I cannot tell you how it has felt to sit down every day and have Holly’s story just fall out of my fingertips. I’m on Chapter 6 — a point at which I’ve already begun to doubt whatever story I’m working on — and so far, I love it. But more on that another time.

I have news! So many of you have asked over the past year or so when, oh, when will my books be available in the UK and Commonwealth countries on Kindle. The fantastic news is that Eternal is publishing both my historicals and the I-Team series, and the books will be out in March, April and May — all of them.

I’ll share the covers here. I hope you love them as much as I do. Which brings me to a funny story...

I was going back and forth with my wonderful editor at Eternal when I discovered that the covers for the historicals are based on photographs taken by my good friend Jenn LeBlanc.

Talk about a small world!

This was complete coincidence and speaks to the quality of Jenn’s work that a UK publisher had tapped her photos for my books.

If the man on the cover of Surrender looks familiar it’s because he bloody well ought to. That’s Karl, who served as the live-action hero in the trailer Jenn, Benjamin and I put together for Defiant.

It’s a special thrill for me to have Jenn’s works on my books. If you count my indie pubs, that means Jenn’s photos grace eight of my covers now. Is that right, Jenn? Eight?

The publication schedule for Eternal is as follows:

March 5
EXTREME EXPOSURE
HARD EVIDENCE      
UNLAWFUL CONTACT

April 2
NAKED EDGE
BREAKING POINT .
STRIKING DISTANCE

May 14
SURRENDER
UNTAMED
DEFIANT
RIDE THE FIRE 




I asked my editor what a UK edition means — do they translate the US slang, prison slang, or historical terms into UK English? She said they try to leave the words as they are as much as possible in order to preserve the story. (I wish US publishers would do that with books from the UK! I can figure out what a lorry is, thank you.) That means my UK readers, who have been so very patient, are going to be getting the I-Team stories and my historicals intact.



As a special treat, I’ll be participating this weekend in a free romantic fiction festival designed to bring UK readers and authors together online. I’m not sure what all it entails, but I’ll be there. Here’s the link to sign up and participate.

I've got to run, so I'll post the I-Team covers here and dash. But I hope you're as happy about the news as I am. It's rare to have two entire series coming out all at once. 

If you’re new to my work, visit my website at www.pamelaclare.com for details on all of the stories.

How wonderful for you that both series will now be available to a wider audience. I hope it all goes smoothly and successfully.
Better yet is the news about your path to recovery. Starting to get back to your old routine and doing things you want is a big help. I am sure it gives you something else to concentrate on and something to enjoy. I am happy it is going well for you in the writing department. We are all looking forward to you coming back better than ever.
Continue taking good care of yourself.

I'm so excited for you and jealous that your UK fans get to experience you for the first time and all at once. I missed the festival book event but hope you had a great time. I'm also biting my nails at the thought of Holly's story coming soon. Hopefully getting back in the rhythm will continue to help you on your path of recovery.
