Love: Lost and Found is now available on Kindle!

I’m thrilled to announce that my new book is now available on Kindle. There are over 90 poems representing over ten different forms of poetry. Filled with angst and longing, as well as exhilaration and joy. Love: Lost and Found is sure to please lovers.

Only $1.99 and ready to 1-click today. Spread the word, buy the book, write a review. But mostly, enjoy the variety of poems of love.

Pamela Beckford began writing poetry just one year ago. She has delved into various forms and enjoys painting pictures with words. An avid reader, writing has been a great creative release for Pamela.


Cover Reveal for Love: Lost and Found

I’m so excited about the cover for my new book. I know I’ve been talking about this for quite a while now, but it is all coming together very quickly now.

I had a friend help me by photoshopping some images together to create the picture. He was great at coming up with exactly what I could see in my head (and trust me, that is no easy thing to do). And then I have another friend (she is actually someone who does most of the graphic design work for me at work) who created the final cover. I think they did a great job.

I am hoping to have this ready to publish on Kindle this week and then available in paperback within a couple of weeks.

Please share this cover and help me promote my latest poetry collection.

Book review challenge series – Ionia Martin

Another great interview with Ionia and her book reviewing

Rosie Amber

Day 5

Today our guest is book reviewer extraordinaire Ionia Martin. Please join me in welcoming her to the blog. Plus we have author Adrienne Vaughan’s views on the importance of book reviews, posting a review to Amazon and gearing up to write your own review.

Ionia Martin

1) Where can readers and writers find your blog?
You can find me at

2) Where do you post your book reviews as well as your blog?
It depends on the book, but I usually cross-post to US and UK as well as posting to Facebook, Linked-in, Goodreads and Twitter. If the author has a publisher site I will sometimes post there too.

3) What type of books will you consider for review?
I don’t do sci-fi books. Otherwise, I accept almost anything that doesn’t include graphic material. If a 15 year old couldn’t read it without blushing or getting sick, I…

Interview with The Talented Ionia Martin

Wonderful interview with the lovely book reviewer Ionia.

Fiction Favorites

Ionia Martina books-31

John:  Before we start and before Ionia gets here, I have to tell you I am as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I have the opportunity to ask Ionia Martin a series of questions which have been designed to gain additional knowledge about this talented and beautiful person’s decision to become a reviewer. So why be nervous you ask? Why not be nervous? Can you imagine having the opportunity to ask really good questions of an icon and then come up short? . . . Er . . . let me rephrase that. Can you imagine having the opportunity of asking really good questions and then falling flat on your ass because the questions are too mundane or have been asked one hundred times before? To prevent this catastrophic situation I did extensive research and memorized every single interview Ionia has done over…

Dreams of Love by Pamela

My next collection of love poems will be ready soon…I promise. I’m waiting on the final cover art. I’m really excited about this collection and the cover should be amazing. The title will be Love: Lost and Found. You can be sure I will be making an announcement as soon as I can get a proof copy (although I may go ahead and publish the Kindle version sooner).

Anyway, if you haven’t already purchased Dreams of Love, now would be a great time to do so. It is back in the top 100 of Love Poems on Kindle, but sales will help keep it there. I don’t think you will be disappointed by what you read. There are several five star reviews (you really should go read all the wonderful things people have said about Dreams of Love).

Hell yes, I read: Inside the mind of a lifelong reader

My interview with Ionia about reading. Take a look

readful things blog

This is the conclusion to the 2 part series on reading habits (or not reading, if you caught the first half.) Today we are joined by Pamela, from Year Round Thanksgiving

and Poetry by Pamela.

Pam reads more than anyone else I know, so I thought she would be perfect to provide contrast to our previous guest. She has some really interesting answers, so authors, if you are wondering what makes your book sell, have a read.

Ionia: Why do you read so much? There are so many forms of entertainment, but what makes you come back to books?

Pamela: I have always been a reader. I grew up loving books. One of my fondest memories as a very young child, was “running away from home”. My mom had made me do something I didn’t want to do (but I am sure now that it was something I should…

BOOK REVIEW: “VOICES OF NATURE” By Pamela B. and Kirsten A.

Review of Voices of Nature

Life in the Oasis

With the arrival of summer and its sweltering days and warm nights, books are a fabulous way to relax, get away, and imagine. I seem to read more books during the summer than any other time of the year. Today, I’m kicking off a series of my book reviews. I hope that my recommendations inspire you to read these books. If you are a writer and have a book you would like me to read and publicly review, drop me a line. I’d be glad to do that. ~Susan Marie Molloy

“Voices of Nature,” written by Pamela B. and Kirsten A., is a beautifully penned assemblage of poetry celebrating Nature’s varying seasonal beauty.

The book is cleverly categorized into logical chapters: Seasons (generically), Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer, and ‘Nature’s Best.’

The first chapter, “The Seasons” is a delightful hors d’oeuvre that tempts the reader with the “lush meadow of…
