Pam Halter
Writing Editing Serving

Welcome to my website!

As an author, I'm honored to have had my writing published and am looking forward to more projects in print. It's my goal to show God's truths in story form. I work hard to never preach, but to engage and entertain my readers. I'm also learning about myself as I go along.

As an editor, I'm here to help and encourage you. I have been on this writing journey since 1994 and have gleaned a lot along the way. What do you need? If you are a new author and need a fresh pair of eyes, I can read your manuscript and give you notes, examples and encouragement. If you're experienced and need some feedback, I can help strengthen your story. Check out the editing page.

As a parent, I know it's not an easy thing, raising a child with special needs. Many days I feel isolated, tired, frustrated, and sometimes angry. We can encourage each other when the days are heavy and we can rejoice when they are light. If you're the parent of a special needs child and are feeling overwhelmed and need support from someone who understands, please visit my blog.

As an inspirational fantasy novelist, I'm always learning. If you're a Christian who writes fantasy, reads fantasy, or wonders if a Christian should even enjoy fantasy, this is the place to talk about it. I'm looking forward to some great discussion!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have blessed you in some small way today.

Cover Reveal - Rothana
Tuesday, November 06, 2018

Hey FFFers – I’m super excited to show you the cover for Sarah Delena White’s next novel, releasing on November 27th. IT’S FABULOUS! Seriously fabulous. I love this cover SOOOOOOOOOOO much!

 

But first … let’s read a little about the story.

A new queen falls. A death lord rises. An ancient foe looms in the shadows.
Sylvie Imanthiya is desperate to lead Faerie well and deepen the bond with her husband, former king Taylan Ashkalabek. But all hope of that vanishes when the Winter Solstice ceremony ends in disaster, stranding her and Taylan in the Deathrealm, and stripping the kingdom from her.

With Faerie in chaos, Zad and Diza are separated once again: Zad to reconcile with an old mentor to stabilize the kingdom, and Diza to confront the nefarious Casimir in the mortal realm. But Casimir claims that a greater evil seeks to destroy both realms, an evil that Diza’s unique death magic can hold at bay—if she could only remember how.
In the Deathrealm, Taylan is succumbing to the lure of specters from his past, and pushing away Sylvie’s love. Overwhelmed by decay and darkness, Sylvie must summon unexpected magic from the soul of Kyure to fight for her convictions and her husband’s heart.

Shadows divide them. Their friends are in peril. If Sylvie fails, her marriage and her world will fall.

 

Y’all, I’ve read the first book, Halayda, and loved it! (you can buy it here, if you haven’t read it yet: https://www.amazon.com/Halayda-Star-Fae-Trilogy-Sarah-Delena/dp/0997409967/ )

I’m on tiptoes, waiting for the release of Rothana!!

I met Sarah at Realm Makers, and she quickly became a good friend. She also makes beautiful beaded jewelry! I have several pieces.

Sarah Delena White was raised by wolves in an alternate dimension. She writes eclectic speculative fiction that reworks mythology with a fine balance of poetry and snark. She’s an experienced world traveler who loves to weave world folklore and ancient concepts into vibrant, original story worlds. She is the administrative manager for Uncommon Universes Press. When she’s not writing, she can be found making elegant designer bead jewelry, traveling to festivals as a professional ballad singer, drinking tea, and seeking to create the perfect latte. She can be bribed with dark chocolate.

Release Day for Fairyeater!
Thursday, October 25, 2018

                                                                    

Hey FFFers! Today is RELEASE DAY for FAIRYEATER! Woot! I can hardly believe it. I started this story 12 years ago! So many people have told me they would have given up.

But it would never have happened if I did!

I remember my friend, Joyce Magnin ( www.joycemagnin.com ) telling me when it finally happened, I’d realize it was perfect timing. “It doesn’t make sense now, but when it happens, you’ll say, OH,” she said.

Know what? She was right!

In 12 years, I’ve learned things happen or don’t happen for a reason. And I’ve had to leave the reasons I don’t understand to God. But I want to tell you how cool God’s timing can be.

Okay, so besides everything I learned about the craft of writing a novel, I learned to trust my instincts. I learned to trust God. I learned how I want to be treated by an editor. I learned how to treat an editor.

But here’s what’s really cool. I got my acceptance from www.love2readlove2writepublishing.com May 2017. Since I didn’t have an agent, I hired a literary lawyer to help go through the contract. I should have been able to sign it that June, but circumstances prevented it from getting to me until the end of September.

Between June and September, my dad got diagnosed with high level lymphoma B, very aggressive, and his prognosis when we got the results, was a few days to maybe a couple of weeks. By then I had temporarily moved in with my parents because my mom has Parkinson’s and needed my help.

My dad was so very proud of my writing, and if the contract had come to me on time, I would have simply signed it and sent it off. But I got to sign it with my dad.

My brother, Sam, was in for the weekend, and since he created two of the characters for the story (learn about them on Oct. 30th at www.myadhdmusings.wordpress.com ) he got to see me sign it, as well!

Six days later, Dad went to be with Jesus.

I can’t tell ya what a gift this was to me. So bittersweet. But it gave me such encouragement! Now, when I’m frustrated with wondering why something hasn’t happened yet, I can remember this and know God is in control. It’s all about His timing. Sure, I wish Dad could have held the book in his hands, and I don’t know why God didn’t allow that, but I’ll take what He gave me with a thankful heart.

I could have said all sorts of things today – Release Day – but I wanted to share this beautiful moment with you all. Because people are more important than things. And God’s timing is perfect.
