Christianity underground...churches destroyed...Ann’s determined to save the faith she loves. James wants to protect her. Five Star Reviews: What people are saying about Breaking Barriers “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.” *** “Hang on for a whirlwind of a tale that’ll take you to the sunshine state of Florida and have you oohing, awing, shaking your head and even smiling throughout. Author Gail Pallotta has done it again, written an exceptional faith based, action packed romance. Bravo to a great read!!” *** “The first words gripped my heart and twisted hard, and Ms. Pallotta’s words didn’t release their strangle hold until the final sentence.” “Her characters bloomed on each page, except for her antagonist—The Worm. He slithered and slimmed everything he touched. And Ann was his tar
A Warm Welcome to Izzy James To enter to win the e-Book of The Shopkeeper's Widow leave an email address and a comment below. Hi Izzy, lots of writers were avid readers as children. What about you? If so, what did you read? Yes, and I still am. I pretty much read whatever I could get my hands on. I fell in love with reading when my Dad took my sisters and I to the library the first time. I got a book and the character in the book saw letters with colors. And I thought “Me too!” I requested a lamp to read by at night and I never looked back. Let's talk about your writing. What themes do you write about? Lately my themes have been about freedom and second chances. Are you a plotter or pantzer? A mix. I start with a general outline that changes as I go as the characters come to life and tell me just what they think should happen next. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? Write. Read. Write some more. Read books on craft—anything by James Scott Bell—and practice what t
A Warm Welcome to Pamela Thibodeaux Hi Gail, thanks for having me on your blog today! I am a mother, grandmother, insurance agent and multi-published author of “Inspirational with an Edge!” ™ romance and women’s fiction. Hi Pamela. It's my pleasure to have you. Lots of writers were avid readers as children. How about you? If so, what did you read? Oh yes! From Dr. Seuss to Walter Farley’s Black Stallion series, I’ve read as long as I can remember. I began reading sweet romances around age twelve and evolved to Historical and traditional romance in middle/high school. Other than paranormal, I pretty much read across the board, but I almost always choose romance. I also read a lot of spiritual/self-help non-fiction. Tell us about your latest book .

A Warm Welcome to Ane Mulligan To enter to win the e-Book of In High Cotton leave a comment and an email address below. Thank you, Gail, for allowing me to meet your readers. It’s my pleasure, Ane. A big Georgia “hey” to all y’all. (That’s hello in Georgian). When people learn I’m an author, they want to know what kind of books I write. My brand is Southern-fried fiction. In all my books, no matter what era they’re set in, you’ll find an ensemble cast of strong women, facing life’s issues together. I grew up wanting sisters. I only had a brother; both of us were adopted. While we had an idyllic childhood, I longed for sisters. I gathered girl friends around me in place of nonexistent sisters. That continued into adulthood, and those friendships influenced my writing. Of course, little did I know what God had in store for me. The story of my discovery of my birth sisters is here on my website. In High Cotton is the first in my Georgia Magnolias series. It’s

Contemporary Romance: The Price of Dreams by Toni Shiloh -- Ballet has always been my life, but one terrible moment may have destroyed everything I’ve worked so hard for—especially my title of Octavia Ricci, principal ballerina. I thought for sure my physical therapist, Dr. Noah Wright, could help me obtain my dream once more, but he wants more than I’m prepared to give. I’ve seen firsthand the trials of interracial relationships. I’m a product of one myself and promised I’d never put my hopefully-someday kids through that drama. Everyone keeps telling me to let go of other people’s expectations, but I’m just not sure I can. Besides, if my dreams of returning to ballet are futile, what hope is there in seeking unconditional love?
