Pat and Mike (Couldn’t Resist the Title)

I have had an incredibly exciting week. First, I got the proofs for my novel A Spark of Heavenly Fire, but that wasn’t the most exciting thing that happened.

More exciting was finding out I’m a blurb on the cover of Suzanne Francis’s book, Heart of Hythea. Seeing my name on the back cover of a book really made me feel like an author.

Even more exciting was having Michael Palmer accept an invitation to be a guest on my blog. Yep, that’s right — the Michael Palmer, author of thirteen bestselling novels, is going to be on my blog tomorrow. Oddly enough for these cyber times, he’s never guested a blog before, so this is an historic occasion. Most exciting of all, he wrote the article just for me, rather than sending me one he’d already written.

I hope I’m not going against email ethics by making our conversation public, but our little discussion was interesting (to me anyway) and I wanted to share it.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to check out Michael’s blog post.

    I’m thrilled for you, Pat. You’re making history. How kewl is that!

  2. Suzanne Francis Says:

    You are developing an amazing contact list! I’m so pleased that your proofs have arrived. I’ll be buying a copies of both books when they come out. (Any chance you will autograph them for me? Then, when you hit the big time, I can auction them on Ebay, har har…)

  3. Pat Bertram Says:

    As long as you pay the postage, you’ve got it! (It would be cheaper, I imagine, if you bought them from me — that way you’d only have postage one way.)

  4. Christine Husom Says:

    I chuckled when I saw your clever title. Keep up the great work!

  5. Pat Bertram Says:

    Christine, I’m delighted that you got my title. What else could I have called it?

    Hi Pat!

    Long time no see! I haven’t had much time for internet surfing lately, too busy with family, work, and my own projects. I decided to drop in and wish you happy holidays, and see that you’ve gotten published!


    • Pat Bertram Says:

      Hi, No Man! It’s been awhile. How is your new writing project coming?

      I’m not quite published yet — but I do have the proofs and am diligently correcting them. I’m hoping to be on Amazon by the end of the year.

    It’s going in fun directions — the plot kind of took itself over, so I really don’t have a say in the planning, I just watch my characters do random things.

    Considering I carefully planned, wrote and edited “No Man an Island” for a decade, it’s a weird way for me to work, but I’m enjoying it. is the link if you want to see for yourself.
