Alive and Thinking in Cyberspace: Pam's take on just about everything

Blog Navigation →


lives don’t stop and start at the behest of a goddamn plot…

Though my life did more or less stop for a few days when writing this rather extended discussion of the romance novella anthology, At the Duke’s Wedding, by Miranda Neville, Caroline Linden, Maya Rodale, and Katherine Ashe.

I didn’t expect to write 1500 words about it, but my inner wonk grabbed the reins. So many of the themes and ideas I’ve spent my life thinking about, since my teenage love affair with Shakespearean comedy through my stop-again start-again career as a romance writer. Now that I’m turning my mind to erotica, I seem more and more to want to consider what makes a romance work, and what I want from the genre that we don’t always get.

This was so much fun to write — I hope you get to read it at

Do let me know what you think.


  1. Hi Pam!

    I loved your review on Goodreads and had already bought At the Duke’s Wedding for my Kindle but hadn’t read it yet.

    After reading your review I just grabbed my Kindle away from my husband (who has me download books for him to – a definite mistake on my part) and told him there was something I had to read NOW!

    Thanks for reminding me and I’m glad you reminded me that something fabulous was in my Kindle just waiting to be read!

  2. That’s so cool, Jeanne.

    While for me, this period of not writing romance (and other reading) has been time for me to think about what I love about it. So look for more Goodreads posts when I find something I love.
