Q+A with Pamela Palmer (A Kiss of Blood)

Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Pamela Palmer.  Pamela is the author of the Feral Warriors series (Desire Untamed, Obsession Untamed, Passion Untamed, Hearts Untamed, Rapture Untamed, Hunger Untamed, Ecstasy Untamed, A Love Untamed), the Esri series (The Dark Gate, Dark Deceiver, A Warrior's Desire, Warrior Rising), and the Vamp City series (A Blood Seduction, A Kiss of Blood).

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

  When my youngest was in pre-school. I'd made an attempt at writing a book soon after college, but after the first chapter, I had no idea what to do. I didn't know there was such a thing as classic story structure, let alone know how to find it. What drove me to try again was a daydream that got too big to keep in my head. I started typing it on the computer and managed to get three chapters down before I hit that 'I don't know what to do, now' wall. Fortunately, a brand new library had just opened a few blocks away and as I strolled the aisles, I discovered an entire section of books on how to write. For the first time, I saw the things I didn't know: story arcs, plot points, turning points, character arcs, black moments, and realized I could learn them all. The rest, as they say, is history.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

  I fell in love with Star Trek when I was ten and never looked back.

EJ:  If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

I would love, love, love to be able to fly under my own power. So I'd probably choose to be a broom-driving witch, or a bird shifter, or even Superman.

EJ:  Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

In A Kiss of Blood, book 2 in the story of Quinn Lennox and vampire Arturo Mazza, more is revealed, the stakes become higher, as Arturo begins to realize that he's no longer the male he used to be, that something's damaged his conscience, and what. As Quinn starts to come into her sorcerer's power, and Arturo becomes determined to protect her, the dynamic between the pair changes dramatically.

EJ:  If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

  Hmm, I'm not very good at choosing actors and actresses--I rarely know who plays what. But I love Julia Stiles and I think she'd make an awesome Quinn. For Arturo, maybe Ian Somerhalder. Arturo's friend, Kassius, would be Joe Manganiello (Alcide on True Blood) all the way. He was my inspiration for the character of Kassius, a werevamp.

A Kiss of Blood (Vamp City #2) by Pamela Palmer.


One of the few humans who managed to escape the deadly twilight world of Vamp City, Quinn Lennox vows to never return. But the vampires want her back, for only she has the power to renew the magic of their crumbling world--and free the vampires trapped within.

When the handsome, dangerous, and all too seductive Arturo Mazza comes for her, Quinn knows she can never trust him after the betrayal she suffered at his hands. But with her beloved brother's fate hanging in the balance, and her own power beginning to emerge, she chooses to risk all on yet another perilous journey back to Vamp City. And though she tries to deny it, her heart begins to hold hope that even a ruthless vampire can learn the meaning of true love….

Release Date: June 25, 2013.
