A Book About Freedom 

In this action-packed thriller gunshots ring out as Ann Jones enters church. She hides in the bathroom until they stop then stumbles into the sanctuary. The congregation lies dead in pools of blood. To rebuild the church she starts True Light Guardians. At the first meeting she’s attacked by a terrorist but rescued by James Crawford. He melts her heart, cold from her father’s abuse, and they fall for each other. She’s afraid to commit to love that might grow angry later like the type she knew as a child. James yearns to stop other attempts on Ann’s life, but can’t. Tormented by her constant risks, he breaks up with her. When an assault sends her to the hospital, an unlikely ally shares Ann’s plight with James, but he reveals a lead that puts all three of them in even more danger. It's book eight in Prism Book Group's, Love Is...series.

Gail Pallotta knows how to write breath-gasping scenes. This is a short novella, but it is packed with great dialog, authentic three-dimensional characters, and page-turning action. Then there is a sweet romance tucked inside as well. This could happen anywhere, anytime in today's world. A book everyone should read. It will firm up your faith. by Julie Cosgrove

Pallotta creates a storyline that could come straight from the newspaper or local news today. Suspense and romance come together in this well-written tale. The Christian persecution experienced by the characters made me sit up and take notice, asking if I could be so loyal. by Paula Michelle Mowery

I'm giving away an e-book of Breaking Barriers on Shannon Vannatter's Inkslinger blog  on Monday, July 4th

Messages is free on Amazon From July 2nd - July 5th

Find inspiration for our hectic times in these straight-forward poems for happy and sad days.

Find history, warmth and a touch of the paranormal in three stories.

Getting the Goat peeks into the early 1900's when mountain life was tough. Does Mama's advice hold true today?

In Stitches in Love Rose's deep love for her grandmother motivates others to share their gifts. Does Rose reap her reward?

Robert Horner is tempted in The Stranger, but does he succumb to the lure?

Gail Pallotta's writing offers readers a peaceful oasis in our fast-paced world. Her poetry beautifully explores a wide variety of emotions and invites readers to slow down and reflect. I especially love the way scripture is woven throughout. Like comfort food after a stressful day, her short stories will calm your nerves and warm your heart. This little book brings a message of hope and peace. by Martha H

For joyful as well as down times, you will find encouragement in these wisdom filled poems and short stories. They are laden with times gone by, cordiality, and even some mystical aspects. The poems tell of natural surroundings, convictions, faith, sorrows and restoration. Some are descriptive, contemporary, and others more old-fashioned. I don't read a lot of poetry, but since I read Author Gail Pallotta’s books ‘Stopped Cold’ and ‘Mountain of Love and Danger’ and I loved those stories, I thought I‘d give this book a try as well. I’m so glad I did. The poems and stories are wonderful. I really enjoyed reading them in spurts throughout my day for enjoyable relaxing moments and inspiration. If you are a poetry and short story fan or if you just like to stop and read something thought provoking and inspirational throughout your day then make sure to pick up this great read! by VMLM

Linda Shares a Devotional based on a passage from Hosea
Hosea Chapter 12 talks about Jacob's journey, how God called him and blessed him though he'd been a deceiver, how he wrestled with the angel until he submitted.

Jacob's family was riddled with strife. With two wives, sisters who obviously had serious jealousy issues, and two concubines who squabbled as well, and twelve sons who fought continuously. So fierce was there jealousy, they plotted to murder their little brother. Joseph's story is familiar. God used the dysfunction of a family to save a nation. Family rife is as old as Cain and Abel and sometimes with just as serious consequences.

In Hosea’s Heart, my main character, Aubrey Beaumont, worried for his children because of his addicted wife’s choices. Darlene became an overachiever, Paul excelled in golf and sought a…

June shares one of her favorite Bible verses and a delicious recipe to nourish us body and soul.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, not powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

Hi Pamela, first, tell us a little about yourself.

Thanks for having me Gail! I am a mother and grandmother, author, editor, promotions expert. I am a licensed insurance agent and am studying to be certified as a Life Coach. Those are the many hats I wear. On a more personal level I am a woman of God whose soul (and sole) purpose is to share my faith, knowledge and experience with others and in doing so, (hopefully) in some small way, soften hearts, open minds and touch lives.

Many writers were avid readers as children. Were you? If so, what did you read?

YES always! I’ve been an avid reader as far back as I remember and I read horse books (Black Stallion series, Misty of Chincoteague, etc.) voraciously. In fact, I still love horse s…
