- The Author’s Edge: Learn the inside track to heightening your deep POV through your character’s emotions. By tapping into your character’s emotions you can take your readers so deep they feel as though they are the characters themselves.
- Yes,You Can Write a Synopsis Without Losing Your Mind. Writing a synopsis is usually dreaded far more than writing a 100K word novel. Pam can help you break down the process into several steps that makes the effort painless.
Lake Geneva History Topics:
- The Things You Learn About the Past–Researching an historical novel such as Love Finds You in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Hours of scrolling through microfilm of Lake Geneva’s weekly newspaper from 1933 was only the beginning of all Pam learned before writing the story.
- The Riviera–Lake Geneva’s Iconic Building’s History. The “Riv” was built during the Great Depression with the sale of bonds and WPA funds. She even learned that there are 70,000 bricks in the building and delights in pointing that out when she is on the building’s site.
- If These Walls Could Talk. Historical stories behind the mansions that prompted Lake Geneva’s nickname, Newport of the West. Pam is currently writing a series of monthly blog posts at the Heroes, Heroines, and History Blog. She had learned a lot of interesting facts about the grand old mansions of the late 19th Century and early 20th Century. Some have met their fate by fire or wrecking ball, but many others are still standing.
Pamela is also available to sign her books at special events, retails stores, and other unique places.
