A Love Untamed: A Feral Warriors Novel by Pamela PalmerBBB: How old were you when you began writing, and what was the first piece you ever wrote?

PP: The first time I ever tried to write, I was a few years out of college. I wrote the first chapter of a romantic suspense set in Washington, D.C. about a whistle blower. I rarely talk about this writing attempt because it came to an abrupt end when I had no idea what to do with chapter two. I had no concept of story structure and decided I must not have any talent because a real writer would know what came next. In my defense, I was an engineering major–absolutely no literature or writing classes. It was a few more years before I tried writing again and discovered that the library was filled with how-to-write books, and that story structure, characterization, etc. could all be learned.

BBB: Are there particular activities or places that inspire you as a writer, or does inspiration just come out of the blue anywhere and anytime?

PP: I get my best inspiration from movies and music. Movies give me story ideas, character ideas, location ideas, you name it. And music–the right music–can move me emotionally, really tapping into my creativity. I always write to music for this reason, mostly movie sound tracks and new age instrumentals.

BBB: How do you keep track of your world building?

PP: A lot less than I’d like to! I’m an extremely logical person, but for some reason I completely lack the gene for organization. I can organize my day, my thoughts, my book. But when it comes to organizing stuff, I’m hopeless. I’ve forever standing in the middle of a room wondering where I put whatever it is I’m looking for. I’ll think of five logical places it could be. And, invariably, it turns up in a sixth. It’s the same when I file things on-line. They haven’t made a good enough search engine for me, yet. So, yes, I have files and files of world building and I end up spending far, far too long searching for things. I do have to pat myself on the back, though. When I started writing Vamp City book 2, I made myself a Vamp City Bible. And while it’s not perfectly organized, all the key info is in one place. All I have to do now is keep it up. But I’ve written seven Feral Warriors books and every time I think about wrestling down that mountain of information I shudder and go back to writing. One of these days…

BBB: What books did you most enjoy reading while growing up? As a teen? What genres do you read for pleasure now?

PP: I adored Nancy Drew when I was a child and loved Gothic romance as a teen, but no one book comes to mind. The very first adult romance that I read was Laurie McBain’s Moonstruck Madness, and I absolutely fell in love with that book and with the romance genre as a result.

BBB: Please describe the concept of Vamp City for our readers.

PP: My Vamp City series is a multi-book romance, kind of a romance-urban fantasy hybrid with continuing characters. Washington, V.C. (Vamp City) was created in 1870 by a powerful sorcerer. A vampire utopia, it was an exact replica of the humans’ Washington, D.C., but one in which the sun never shone—a world of perpetual twilight where vampires can live openly and safely, free to hunt and feed on the humans brought in for their sustenance and pleasure, a paradise where every vampire can, if he wants to, own his own house and his own blood slaves. In book 1, A Blood Seduction, Quinn Lennox accidentally stumbles into Vamp City with her brother and is soon captured by the vampire Arturo Mazza. Vamp City’s magic is dying and Quinn, with her latent sorcerer’s blood, is the only one who can save it, but all Quinn wants is to find her brother and escape. Arturo has no intention of letting her go.

BBB: How would you explain the basic premise of the Feral Warriors series?

PP: When the story begins, the Feral Warriors are the last nine shape-shifters left in the world and each shifts into a different animal: tiger, wolf, snake, fox, lion, jaguar, panther, hawk, and cougar. The story of the Ferals, as told in book one: “Eons ago, before the rise of human civilization, two immortal races battled the Daemons for control of the earth—the Mage, or magic ones, and the Therians, the mighty shape-shifters. Though traditional enemies, the Mage and Therians banded together to overcome the High Daemon, Satanan, ending his reign of terror and destroying his armies. The cost of victory was high. To win that ultimate battle, both races were forced to mortgage nearly all their power. Only one Therian among each of the ancient lines of shape-shifters was left with the power of his animal. They are called the Feral Warriors.”

BBB: Did you do any kind of research to determine the details of your characters lives / lifestyles?

PP: I research locations from time to time, though I live in the Washington, D.C. area, where all my books take place, so the research is easy enough. Where I did the most research was in creating Vamp City, since I had to really understand 1870 D.C. I found it fascinating!

BBB: Out of all of your characters, which have you most enjoyed writing and which has proven the most difficult?

PP: Honestly, I have to say Jag, from Rapture Untamed (Feral Warriors book 4), for both. He starts out as such a troublemaker, such an ass. He has no filter for his mouth. But deep down he has a good heart even if he doesn’t think so. When I write, I hear the dialogue. It just comes to me and I write it as I hear it. And I never know what Jag’s going to say. He utterly entertains me. On the flip side, he absolutely didn’t want to be a hero and the heroine, Olivia, and I had to drag him to it kicking and screaming.

BBB: What aspect of being an author do you most enjoy?

PP: Ha! Working in sweat pants with no commute. More seriously (not that I don’t seriously love working in sweatpants), I love, love, love meeting and hearing from readers. You guys are the reason I write.

BBB: What’s coming up for you in 2013?

PP: December 26th, 2012, the seventh book in my Feral Warriors series,  A Love Untamed, comes out. This one is Kieran/Fox’s and Melisande’s book. Then February 12th, Avon Impulse is releasing the Vampires Gone Wild anthology which I’m doing with Kerrelyn Sparks, Amanda Arista, and Kim Falconer. I have a brand new Vamp City story in that one. Then come June 25th, Vamp City book 2 comes out, A Kiss of Blood.

BBB: What do you think the future holds for paranormal romance and urban fantasy?

PP: I think the future for paranormal romance and urban fantasy is bright, bright, bright. As if there wasn’t already a huge readership for these books, today’s kids are growing up reading Harry Potter, Twilight, and hundreds of other fantasy-type stories. As they get older, I expect they’ll be looking for books with a bit more bite. And they’ll find them!

  1. Great interview! I love the Feral Warriors!!

  2. Will the any of the Feral Warriors ever have a book that centers on characters that already have had their books?

  3. When will Wulfe get his HEA?

    • Hi Angel! Wulfe’s book is number 9. Book 7, A Love Untamed, comes out Dec. 26th. Book 8 is Grizz’s book and I’m starting to write it now. It has a tentative release date of late February 2014. I know it seems like forever, but I’m also writing the Vamp City series and the books just take time. Hang in there, though. It’s coming!

  4. I LOVE your Ferals! And I think you are awesome, I met you at AAD this summer and had a blast hanging out with you!

  5. Current favorite vamp tv series is probably Vampire Diaries, I don’t have HBO to watch True Blood…

  6. I totally dig the Feral Warriors. I fell onto Desire Untamed last year and fell head over heels. I quickly devoured the rest of the series. Jag is definitely my favorite Warrior but I still can’t wait until December. Fox will be my Christmas present to myself. And I am dying to read Wolfe’s story. He needs his mate!

    Keep writing these fantastic books!

  7. While I agree wholeheartedly with your comment “today

    • Good question, Lisa. I have considered it…briefly…and maybe I’ll give it a try one of these days. I’m not sure if I have a good YA voice in me, but it might be fun to find out. Right now, though, I have my plate full with the Ferals and Vamp City. No time to write anything else!

  8. Hi, Pamela!
    I just have to tell you that I love your books, and I seriously can’t wait for Fox and Mel’s story ! I’ve been waiting for it since I finished Ecstasy Untamed – which I adored, as all the others :)
    As for Melisande… we already know how tough she is, and that it has a reason, what’s more, we saw her as a villainess. And I’m looking forward to get to know her and her secrets. Could you tell us something more about her? For example, what was she like before the “something” that changed her forever?
    I’m courious about her relationship with Fox/Kieran as well, how it will develop. And what about the “pleasure bomb” instead of “pain bomb” in Ecstasy Untamed? Hell, I’m courious about everything. Sorry :$

    P.S.: Go Feral!!:D

    • Hey Sophie! Love your questions. :) But I’m trying to think if I can answer any of them without giving away spoilers. I’ll tell you this…Melisande was special among the Ilinas. One of a kind, actually. And very, very different from what she is now. ;)

  9. Is there another series waiting in the wings to be created?

  10. I really love the Feral Warriors series.

  11. Those Ferals Rock!! Can’t wait for the next book.
    Thank You for such great books.

  12. Wow! Thanks so much Pamela for the insite of your writing & books. So love you

  13. Hey Tiffany! Are you referring to Zee and Julianne, by any chance? Or someone else? In answer…hmm…I don’t know. If they’ve already had their story, it wouldn’t be a romance. I can see doing a novella, perhaps?

  14. I would so be a panther, there sleek & quick

  15. How many books do you have planned for the Vamp City Series?

    • Hi Kelly! That’s a good question. Quinn and Arturo’s story is going to be either four or five books. I’ve written two and I think I understand the action and scope of the last one. But I’m not sure if I can get to that last one with one more book, or if it will take two. I don’t think I’ll know until I write it.

  16. I love both series you are currently writing. Will any of the orginal lost feral s come back?

  17. My favorite Vampire Series would have to be Vampire Diaries :)

  18. If I could shift into any animal with would be an eagle! I would look amazing eye sight and who doesn’t want to fly :)

  19. I love this series, but I’m a couple behind at the moment. That should be remedied very soon, however!

    As someone with a similar background (math, not engineering), I’d recommend trying Evernote to help get things organized. Just something to look at.

    • Hey Stacy! I’ve heard of Evernote. I may have to try it. My brain’s tendency to go off in wild directions works really well for writing. Not so well for organizing.

  20. If you could shift into any animal, which would you choose and why?

    definitely a fat lazy housecat, they always appear to be sated with life

  21. I’d love to see a movie with lion & Kara!!

  22. I’ve read the first book in the Feral series. I remember thinking “I have to get more of these books” But sometimes fiances stand in the way of that. LOL

  23. I personally think it shouldn’t be a movie but a TV series because how do you pick just one. But… I am in love with Jag so I would want someone like Ian Somerhalder. He needs the looks and bad a$$ personality yet great one liners!

  24. My all time fav movie would have to be Dracula, the old version & also Blades a great 1 as well

  25. What

  26. If they were to make a movie from any of my books, who would you like to see play the hero or heroine?
    Vanessa Marano who plays Bay Kennish on “Switched at Birth” would be awesome as Delaney Randall from your “Obsession Untamed” book. She has the “take-no-prisoners kick-ass” persona to bring Delaney to life.

  27. Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do overcome it?

    • Hi Damaris! I don’t get writer’s block, no. If I’m having trouble with the story, it means I’ve taken a wrong turn somewhere. I just go back and study what I’ve done until I figure it out. Once I fix it, I’m good to go.

  28. If you could shift into any animal, which would you choose and why?

    So I gather dragon is out? * Snaps her fingers* Hrm, would kinda like to exchange life with my wiener dogs. LOL. But given the chance I would love to be able to shape change into a horse. Horses have always been a favorite (channeling my inner Epona. LOL)

  29. I love the Feral Warriors Pamela! My question is…have we met Wulfe’s HEA yet????? I <3 him!! Can't wait for the Pajama Party next month!! Thanks for the interview and the awesome giveaway!!

  30. If they were to make a movie from any of my books, who would you like to see play the hero or heroine?
    Funny how my mind went totally blank on this one. Some of the actresses I like may not be fitting for the roles. I always liked Rachel Weis’s look and voice. Kate Beckninsale is another.

    Chris hemmsworth? Today’s actors and actresses have not really grasped me like Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr. Have. Nothing to really imprint heavily onto my brain. Guess I’m feeling a bit meh.

  31. Question – Alright if you had the silvertongue ability (inkheart) what would be the first book you’d grab? (yours included) Who/what would you read out?

  32. My favorite vamp series is The Vampire Diaries :)

    If I could shift into an animal, what would I choose? Hmmm… good question. I always loved cats, so any wild cat would do. Or some beatiful predatory bird. Or a wolf. Decisions, decisions…

    As for the movies, I’m not sure. I just don’t know who coul give back the qualities, the handsomeness and all those testosterone :))

  33. I am always searching for new series to start reading. Yours sounds very intriguing and I can’t wait to start.

  34. I love this series! And I really enjoyed the interview!

    My question is

    In the beginning how many books did you have planned for this series, and now that they are popular has that number changed? If so haw many are planned now?

    • Hi Alicia! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Ferals. When I conceived of the Feral Warriors series, I knew I wanted to tell at least nine tales, but I thought there might be more. Now, I’m sure there are more than nine, but I have no idea how many.

  35. I just discovered you and your vampire series and am very interested in reading more. Would you suggest new readers start with book 1 or can you start with the current book and read backwards? Do you ever write one with a holiday theme?

    • Start with book 1, Brenda. While each of the Feral Warrior books is a stand-alone romance, the external story continues from book to book. It will make more sense if you read them in order. The only holiday-themed story I’ve written is a Valentine’s story, Hearts Untamed, a Feral novella.

  36. What a great interview. You’re new to me. Can’t think of a question that you haven’t already answered :). Thank you.

  37. All time fav. movie would be Underworld and tv would be Vampire Diaries (love Ian).

  38. Are you a plotter or a pantser? Did you have the whole story arc in your mind when you started writing this series? How many books total do you see?

    • And Dark Shadows, the original TV series is my favorite.

    • Hi Laurie! I’m probably more plotter than pantzer, but I’m a bit of both. I know how the Feral Warriors series is going to end, but I’m constantly surprised by the twists and turns that are happening along the way. I’m discovering the story just a little ahead of you guys! And how many books will there be? I have no idea. ;)

  39. Stephanie Mayfield

    Im currently reading Jag’s story and have to say that I’m LOVING it.

    • Hi Stephanie! I’m so glad you’re enjoying Jag’s book. That Feral gave me fits–he sure didn’t want to be a hero–but I did love writing his story. :)

      • Stephanie Mayfield

        Ah that leads me to a new question, how do not pick a favorite? And I can see why Jag would be hard to nail, I didn’t get the vibe that he liked being the center of attention

  40. Stephanie Mayfield

    My favorite movie would have to be Dracula

  41. Stephanie Mayfield

    If I could shift into a animal, it would have to be a cougar. I simply love the animal, all fluid grace and beauty

  42. I’m a reader who’s enticed by a cover to pick up a book and check it out. I love your covers, Lyon’s cover got me reading and loving your books. Do you have any input into the cover or veto over models they use? I’ve read some books then looked at the cover again and thought “that’s nothing like the character”. Yours are great, and match the character as I picture them in my mind (especially Jag’s)

    • Hi Michelle! No, I really have little say over my covers. Fortunately, Avon Books has a fabulous art department and I’ve been thrilled with the guys they’ve chosen. They’ve been very, very close to what I’ve pictured, too.

  43. Stephanie Mayfield

    any book into a movie….. hmmmm… tough one, I could see Gerard Butler as Jag, Dwayne Johnson as Panther

  44. Stephanie Mayfield

    Hi Pam, with all those Alpha heros running around in your head do you have a favorite, one you’ll just stop and put aside what you’re doing to listen to what he has to say? Whether is book is done or not.

  45. I have read all the Feral book’s and am starting the Vamp City series but I too wondered when Wulfe would get his story and read where you write book 9 is to be his….now I can hardly wait….keep writing and I will keep buying!!!

  46. If I could shift into an animal, I would choose the snow leopard. I think they’re georgeous animals.

  47. RSVP

    Love your books. I just recently read the first Vamp City book and had mixed feelings about the ending and the main male, Arturo. I haven’t read a story with a grey character before (meaning he’s neither good nor bad). The ending had me confused and wondering what the end game is. I will certainly read the next book to see if my questions get cleared up or even more muddy.
    And I love your Feral Warriors series. I still have the signed copy of Jag’s book you sent me from when I won the contest at Supernatural Underground. Not only am I wondering when Wolf will get his mate but Viper too.
    Keep up the great work!

    • Hi Ashlee! Arturo definitely has a long way to go. The best way I can describe A Blood Seduction, Vamp City 1, is it’s the first 20-25% of the story, of the romance. And like a lot of my Feral books, early in the story the hero isn’t always terribly heroic (think Jag, or even Paenther with Skye). They have a lot of growing and changing to do, and it’s always because of the heroine that they do it. Bad boys take some work! And I love bad boys. ;) Wulfe will get his mate in Feral book 9. Vhyper won’t get his until much later. Honestly, I’m pretty sure Vhyper’s is the last book in the series.

  48. Firstly I have to say that I love this series!

    And I’m so glad you didn’t stop writing after your first foray! It’s funny because when I was in college, I lived in the dorm designated for engineers. And I say funny because I am so the opposite of an engineer!

    But they were always the same way with organization. It was like there was so much going on in their heads, there was no room to organize it. So I became the go-to for all non-realted engineering issues. Which actually sometimes got weird, because they always kept weird hours.

    I have always wondered someting about the series. What made you decide to make Pink a flamingo? Did you just like flamingoes or was it the imagery of having a half- flamingo woman or something else?

    Thanks!

    • Hey Rae! That’s funny about the engineers. Maybe it IS my engineering brain that’s causing the trouble. I have no idea, but it drives me crazy! :) As for Pink, I don’t even remember how she was ‘born’. I think she just showed up as I was writing that first scene in Desire Untamed. Often it happens that way, ideas arrive full-blown. Very strange, but wonderful when it happens.

  49. Jean (Dusty) Moretto

    I just LOVE your books Pamela! I am anxiously awaiting Vamp City 2! Hugs :-)

  50. Hi Pamela!
    I was so excited to find the Feral Warrior series a few years back…it was such a new and fresh take in paranormal romance ( ans so sexy, too!). I’m with the others who are anxious for Wulfe’s story, but I don’t want to see the series end either so I’m happy you have more ideas floating around ;)

  51. I love the Feral series! I started out of order with Hunger Untamed and fell in love and had to go get the one’s before it. Can not wait for the rest of the series. Keep up the great work!

  52. Oh! My favorite vampire TV series was “The Kindred” with Mark Frankel (he was killed after it’s cancellation and working on another series!) And boy was he hot!!!! And who could forget “Dark Shadows”!!! and to answer your question about what I would like to shift into if I could…. it would be the wolf…beautiful and dangerous (as all your shifters are!!!)

  53. Great interview! I like the sound of your series’.

  54. My favourite vampire show was the Kindred.

  55. I just love Feral series. I really like shafe shifters and this series is among the top 5 that I have read. I hate the thought of every running out of the guys.

  56. My favorite vampire series has to be the original Dark Shadows.

  57. Did UF ever go away? I just assumed that it’ll be around for a looooong time. I, of course, love your Paul Marron book covers. *ahem* ;)

    I loved Nancy Drew books, too, especially since re-write them every decade or two.

    RSVP’d

    • Hey infinitieh! Ha. I do have pretty amazing Paul Marron covers, don’t I? One of these days, I’d love to meet the man. Actually, I’d love to meet any of the cover models for my books. ;)

  58. Did you originally know which animals you were going to choose or did you assign an animal for the characteristics of each Feral?

    Thanks!

    • I started with the animals, then chose the personalities pretty much at random. I think. It’s hard to remember exactly, because I brainstormed the entire world in about three days.

  59. Besides the convenience of living there for your research, what do you find most interesting and inspiring about D.C. as a setting?

    Heather

    hafowler at gmail dot com

    • Hey Heather! You guys are coming up with some really amazing questions. One of the things I love about the D.C. area is the diversity of locations around here. The wildness of Great Falls is only twenty miles from the Nation’s Capital. Drive a couple of hours in one direction and you’re at the beach. A couple in the other and you’re in the mountains. Plus, there’s so much history in this place. There’s so much more to D.C. than politics and politicians. Thank goodness. ;)

  60. Great interview. This is a new series to me, but they sound like a great read.

  61. More comments!

    I love every vampire show ever, pretty much, but my all-time favorite is Angel. Vampire Diaries and True Blood are a tie for second.

    Heather
    hafowler at gmail dot com

  62. Looks like you’re another author whose books I need to add to my TBR pile. Great interview.

  63. I RSVP’d! I hope I made it! Got up early (you see I live in Japan and this time difference is killing me haha). Hi Pamela! I love love love your feral series. My question is how are you going to do the snake(viper)? I terrifies me big time hahah but can’t wait for that one!!!

    • *it sorry excited to be here

      • Love that you’re here, Dawn! And love that you’re enjoying the Ferals.

        How am I going to do Vhyper’s book? Ha. I have no idea. :) I know the man, and the snake has shown up a little bit. I guess we’ll both find out when I get there!

  64. As great as working in sweats sounds, I know from experience that being home too much can make you madd. How do you stay modivated and keep from talking to yourself?

    • Hey Elie! Ha. I talk to myself ALL the time. ;) What motivates me are 1) my deadlines and 2) you guys. I love hearing from readers and knowing that you all are waiting for the next book.

  65. Hi,

    you mentioned which aspect of being an author you enjoyed, what DON’T you enjoy about being a writer?

    • Hey Mary! It pretty much depends on the day. ;) The one downside of working from home, and essentially running your own business, is that you never pack up and leave your work behind. It’s more like being in school, with homework always hanging over your head. But I love my work, so I honestly don’t mind.

  66. Sounds like a good read, great interview too! Thanks for the giveaway!!!!

  67. Good evening, I RSVP’d yesterday, but what I’m wondering is, with your writing, do you feel that some days are challenging even with the love you’ve got to have for it? I find some days for me to be challenging as far as getting any real work done, while others it seems nothing can stop me. And btw Thanks for doing this, I think it’s great to get a chance to speak with another author and learn a bit about their experience.

    • Hi Seanna! Oh, yes, some days are challenging. A lot of days are. Writing is HARD. I have found tricks to staying productive, though. I use Mac Freedom (a $10 download). It locks me out of the internet for however long I choose. I usually set it for 60 mins. at a time. I also write to music. When my writing music comes on, I’m in the zone. I’ve trained myself and it works!

  68. I RSVP’d but I couldn’t sneak on during work and I think I missed the party. :( So I’m just going to leave my love because this series is one of my favorites!

    proudarmymom32(at)yahoo(dot)com

  69. I enjoyed the interview and have now met you twice. Love your work.

    I RSVP yesterday.

  70. I rsvp’d yesterday and I enjoyed the interview. Look forward to reading more of your books. Love your work.

  71. My all time fave vamp movie is actually a tie between Interview With A Vampire and Lost Boys.

  72. If I could shift, I would love to be a dragon… such a beautiful flying mystical creature.

  73. Fav vamp movie or show… I would say Buffy the TV show.

  74. If I could shift into any animal it would be a tiger…because I think they are beautiful, graceful yet powerful. Would love to know what that feels like.

  75. Enjoyed the Q & A! Thanks for sharing! :D

  76. I also get inspired by movies and music becomes almost a soundtrack to the story I’m working on. Any particular movie that inspired you recently?

    • Hey Krysten! Hmm…I’m trying to think of what movies I’ve seen recently. My all-time favs are the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but then, I’m in love with Aragorn. ;) I also love Ever After with Drew Barrymore! And Underworld.

  77. I dont care which book or hero as long as its Johnny Depp!!! :)

  78. Just wanted to say I love the covers to your books. Very nice eye candy!!

  79. I think my all time fav vamp movie is Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Gary Oldman is such a fantastic actor!! I watch it everytime I see it on, plus I own the blueray so I put it in periodically also.

  80. You are a new writer to me, so I can’t imagine who woud play the roles since I don’t know the charaters. I will say the books sound really good tho, so I’m def going to remedy that. I bought the first one and will be getting to it soon. :)

  81. I would love to shift into some form of cat. They seem so sleek and powerful, and believe me, my name isn’t grace, so maybe I’d have some in cat form!! :)

  82. What are your thoughts on audiobooks? Are any of these available in audio? If not, do you want them to be?

  83. I’ve just discovered the series and am looking forward to the ride :)

  84. Awesome interview, I’m looking forward to reading your work Mrs. Palmer.

  85. My favorite vampire film is “Love at First Bite” with George Hamilton as Dracula. I saw this as a child so I’m tempted to watch it again so that I can get all the jokes this time. :)

  86. Really nice interview! I have not read all the series yet but what I have read I have really enjoyed and am looking forward to reading more :)

  87. I agree there’s a growing market for paranormal books.

  88. My favorite vampire TV program was Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. If I could shift into any animal, I’d choose some type of cat, because they rule their worlds.

  110. I’d like to able to shift into a panther or a tiger, because I like cats, but being a large cat is better.

  114. Hi Pamela! Washington V.C.! Love that! This totally sounds so unique! I have loved the Feral Warriors and for me, Jag too is my favorite! I think too because his emotional trauma got to me (in tears often).

    I read every Victoria Holt in HS, she wrote Gothic Romance. If you haven’t read, they are awesome. She has lots. I used to keep a checklist to make sure I read them all.

    Wondered too if you planned more Time Travel/Historical under your other name? I can’t believe the last Feral Warrior book is soon. I loved that world you created. Must of been so hard not having a bible of all the details ! You did fab!! And I’m looking forward to reading this new vamps! Cathie M.

  116. Hi Pamela,

  117. If you could shift into any animal, which would you choose and why?

    I have never been able to pick just one. So many choices an so may reasons.

  118. Aside from the cover models, do you have any favorite cover artists?

  119. If you had to do a collaboration, but could choose anyone to work with and any topic to write about, Who and what would you choose?

  120. Answer the Author’s Question – What

  121. Answer the Author’s Question – If you could shift into any animal, which would you choose and why?

    A Ocelot. They look so similar as a cat but smaller too that the big cats. they just beautiful! I love that they love their own space and being alone looking out and to protect their own space. They are a beautiful big cat!

    Cathie M.

  122. Answer the Author’s Question – If they were to make a movie from any of my books, who would you like to see play the hero or heroine?

    My favorite is Paenther and Skye! They both so strong characters! Now remember I don’t do much TV or movies so may not pick the best but more so of those I know. I’m thinking Matthew Mcaughney and Halle Berry.

    Cathie M.

  123. Love you warriors!! The covers are also amazing!!

  124. Okay…hope this isn’t posting twice! Great interview, Pam! Love the Feral Warriors series, and love your Nocturnes too. :> Enjoyed reading about this one!

  125. Oops! Forgot to say my fav vampire show – Dark Shadows – and my fav shifter option – Snow Leopard. Grins.

  126. I just finished reading the first in this series, Desire Untamed. I can’t believe it took me so long to pick up this series, WOW! Thanks for the giveaway and a great series to keep me entertained for awhile.

  127. I’m the same way with organization – I know that I am a logical person, yet nothing is where I think it ought to be, and I’m the one who put everything away!

  128. Hi Pamela, a question for you is, what is the most interesting thing you’ve come across in your research?

  129. Love the interview!! Thanks so much!

  130. If I could shift into anything… I guess I’d pick something like a Jaguar, so I could run really fast (it has nothing to do with Jag in your book I’m sure ;) )

  131. This series sounds fantastic. Thanks for the great interview.

  132. I am just finding out about this series. I have Book 1 ready to go!

  133. Hi Pamela,
    Thanks for the great interview. I think it’s pretty great to know that writing wasn’t something that struck you and flew from there. I’ve tried writing before and it’s SO hard even when you have a good idea (or so my head tells me). I’m looking forward to your books.

  134. I would love hte chance to shift into a wolf or a large cat. I know, generic lol

  135. My favorite vampire movie is Underworld (the series of it) or Queen of the Dammed. It’s so interesting!

  136. Great interview. Thanks for sharing!!

  137. What is the best thing you have done in the name of research?

  138. If you could shift into any animal, which would you choose and why?

    - A large cat, tiger or panther type. They are sleek, beautiful, graceful and elegant.

  139. I am really enjoying this series. Can’t wait for the new books to come out.

  140. I don’t really have a favorite vampire show, though I have enjoyed Buffy in the past. I would probably like to shift into some sort of bird.

  141. This one has been on my radar for a while. I have the first one in my tbr pile. Need to read it.

  142. Thank you for the review and giveaway. This is awesome

  143. What is your idea of relaxing?

  144. What is your fave scent?

  145. The 1931 film “Dracula” staring Bela Lugosi. I love him.

  146. I would choose the Canadian Lynx. It has always been my fave animal.

  147. I’m sorry but I’ve not yet had the chance to read any of your work, so I don’t have an opinion on who would be best for it.

  148. Hi Pamela!!

    Sorry so late, but I loved the interview!! We had a lot of similar tastes in reading when we were young girls. As for your question as to which next animal. I am strange but I still love a lot of the animals that are now extinct so I always go with Sabretooth Tiger. They are just so beautiful! and deadly, but aside from that… ;) It would be awesome to bring them back to “life.”

    It was great to have you here!!

    Quick questions… I know you read Nancy Drew. But When I ran out of her to read..easy to do even with all the different serializations they made since she is amazing!!… But I read a book by Doris Fein’s titled Quartz Boyar.. It’s still a good one to read if you haven’t read it. So my question is..

    Have you ever read “Quartz Boyar?” and
    Are you addicted for more Nancy Drew and have played the games of Nancy Drew produced by Her Interactive?

    Thanks Pam!! You rock!!

  149. Hi Pamela!

    I would love to see Chris Hemsworth play Lyon!

  150. Hi Pamela, Shell B from Canada

    What is your favorite deadline food? Does your family keep you fed with chocolate and caffiene>?

  151. All time fave vamp movie??? I am a rarity but loved Queen of the Damned…. I am a sucker for Stewart

  152. I would be a panther or leopard shifter. Love the cats. Wolves are great too but the sleek fur of the cats is so much sexier

  153. Enjoy the Feral Warriors!

  154. Thank you for this give away. Enjoy reading this series. Hard to put these down, once you start reading them.

  155. If you were a mouse…who would you like to peek in on in the name of research?

  156. Hi!!

    How has writing these books change you?

  157. I just picked up the first books of Feral Warriors and Vamp City. Looking forward to reading them! I am happy to see some vampires that are actually baddies. I love the romantic vampires too, but I like to see something different now and again.

  158. Author Question Answer – My all-time favorite vampire movie/TV show is The Vampire Diaries. I love almost all the characters and the plotlines are absolutely insane. Damon being so hot certainly doesn’t hurt. ;-)

  159. Author Question – If I could shift into any animal, I think I would pick a house cat. I would like to be spoiled rotten and not have to worry about bills, etc just like my babies!

  160. Which species did you find was more interesting to write about – shifters or vampires?

  161. All-time favorite vampire TV show is Kindred: the Embraced. It was so cheesy, I couldn

  162. Hi Pamela!!! I’m totally intrigued by your Vamp City series. I’ll definitely need to check it out.

    It is nice to know that I’m not the only engineer that has some organizing issues. My desk is always a mess, but for the most part, I can find things. Organized madness. Plus, you give me hope that my engineering and creative sides can work together. I haven’t met any other fiction writers/engineers. I’ve always been tempted to write, but honestly didn’t know if I was meant for it. Sort of like your first attempt, I have no idea where to go after I start.

  163. Author’s question:

    Favorite vamp movie/TV – such a tough choice – I LOVE Buffy – the TV series. Probably close to one of my favorite shows of all time. For movies, big fan of the Underworld movies.

    • Ok – forgot about question 2 – I would like to change into an animal that could fly – a hawk or an eagle – maybe an owl. i just think it would be amazing to soar through the sky. The ultimate would be a dragon – flying – plus all that strength.

  164. Hi, Pamela. Thanks so much for joining us here at BBB!

    What are you most looking forward to at the Olde City, New Blood con in February?

  165. My favorite Vampire TV show — Buffy, hands down. Currently, I like The Vampire Diaries a lot.
