Echoes

 After a failed coup, the freedom fighters of Tierra Dulce urge young, high-born professor Alejandro de Cordoba to assume leadership of the resistance. However, grief-stricken over the murder of his wife, he ignores the plea shared by both the Church and his countrymen. Instead, he decides to trail the traitor of the revolution all the way to the United States where he intends to assassinate him.

While he lays in wait in rural Southern California, Alejandro tries to pass himself off as an ordinary immigrant day laborer. But Misty and those who know him best think there is far more to him than he lets on. He believes that as well when he begins experiencing mysterious visions that hurl him into the ancient past.

World Deception (Apocalypse Series Book 3)

 Mysterious attacks on Israel have caused the world to take sides as WWIII wreaks havoc on the earth. One-fourth of the earth's population has disappeared while another fourth has been slaughtered.

About Pam Funke

I am the proud grand-daughter of a pastor and have had the pleasure of learning about God at an early age. I am a Christian author who enjoys writing various genres in the Christian genre. My love of reading and writing led me to begin writing for the enjoyment of others. I am thankful for the many creative writing classes I had back in elementary school.

Recommendations for "Operation Dark Angel"

This is such an important story at such a relevant time. I am so glad to see this is already published, and I do hope it it getting into the hands of many people. You tell the story very well, and Mariel and Nicolaitanes are well-drawn. I particularly like the way you incorporate "historic" events such as 9/11 to make it feel current and relatable. Excellent work! I wish you every success with it!-Faith Rose

This isn't my usual kind of read. I have to say you have a very interesting premise here and you very cleverly weave fact fictions and Bible passages into the work. You are clearly knowledgeable about the subject matter and have put a lot of work into the writing. -Lenny

You have picked a great subject and has done marvelous things with it. I read the story and it is accurate to the bone. This subject is needed to be heard by everyone. All you describe here is sad but true. You have chosen the Antichrist to be born in Italy and I could not agree with you more. It is not the first book on the subject yet I believe that the more this subject is explored, the better it is for the reading community. I will be eagerly awaiting the completion of the series. -Alexandria

A very exciting start to your book as Mariel hears a voice telling her she is to have a child. She's every right to deny the suggestion...she knows better than anyone that she can't be--she's pure. Mariel meets up with Rosalind who explains that she is to give birth to a son, Nicolaitanes and that she would be her protector until the day of the birth. What Mariel doesn't know, is that she will be discarded following the birth and first feeding of the child.
You've given the reader plenty to hang on to, good description and the question of why and what will happen next. The arrangements for the birth and the killing of Mariel signify that there's a powerful reason for Nicolaitanes to arrive on the scene. The book is written well, good dialogue, scenes that are easily taken in from well balanced description. It creates deep thinking on subjects such as the United World Religions trying to be invoked upon the common people and the reason for the appearance of Nicolaitanes in the first place. There's so much more to come in this book--to provide the answers to many questions. I can see this thriller becoming a top seller and worthy of a purchase. -Neville

Breathless

Lydia Frederickson is afraid to answer her telephone. Widowed and alone, she only wants to get through another anniversary of her husband’s death without falling to pieces, but a stalker isn’t making that goal easy. The disturbing calls are becoming increasingly personal and threatening, and everyone who knows her is suspect. The only person she knows isn’t making the calls is her new ponytailed, tattooed—and breathtakingly handsome— minister, Matthew Winters.

Former narcotics agent-turned-minister Matthew Winters knows he’s not what the town expected in their new pastor, but he’s up for the challenge. What he doesn’t expect is the sudden attraction he feels for parishioner Lydia Frederickson. When he discovers she’s the victim of a stalker, he feels God’s intervention has led him—both a cop and a preacher—to her. Matthew knows he’s falling for the beautiful widow, but a secret from his past may undermine their future.

Second Chances for Trampled Hearts: Book 1 in the Bear Creek Saddle Series

A handsome rancher who lost his faith along with his young wife…
A waitress, abandoned by her cheating ex, and looking for a fresh start…

Allie Crawford buys half-ownership of the cowboy’s diner in the small mountain town of Bear Creek Saddle, Idaho. It’s all she can afford, and it’s about as far from Miami as she can get. Will it be far enough?
“Big Bad Bill” inherited the town’s infamous old diner from his great-uncle, who insisted it stay in the family. Bill knows cattle, not the restaurant business—so he’ll foot the bill to get it going again, and let the woman champing at the bit for her own restaurant handle running it.
Then Allie needs his help with renovations, and Bill finds he can’t stay away, after all.
Neither expects the friendship that blooms between them. But even beautiful evergreen trees and soaring mountain peaks can’t soothe the pain of betrayal and loss.
Faith may be the only thing big enough to heal their trampled hearts, and give them both a second chance at love…
Second Chances for Trampled Hearts is New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Shoshanna Evers’
first inspirational romance writing as Shoshanna Gabriel.
Author Shoshanna Gabriel (aka Shoshanna Evers)
Wait, what happened? Why?
A note from Shoshanna:

After over five years as a published erotic romance author, I am saying goodbye to that genre, and with it, the name I spent so long building up with my “Sexily *EVERS* After” books. I made a decision to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and it made being Shoshanna Evers uncomfortable for me, because I feel like I am no longer the same person who wrote those sexy books.
Now I want to write romance novels that also include a faith element. To write about people changing completely when God enters their lives, just as my life has changed.
I’m going to move forward with my career openly—no denying that I wrote as Shoshanna Evers—and let the fact that I used to be a hard-core Jewish erotica author and am now a Christian inspirational romance author be my testimony that God can change people’s lives completely.
So I will be writing these new inspirational romances as Shoshanna Gabriel, and I hope you, my readers and my friends, stick with me!
While there is no secret that Shoshanna used to write naughty books, the new name is a way to ensure readers won’t pick up an Evers book thinking it’s a Gabriel book by accident. That’s because the Shoshanna Gabriel books will be written with the Christian reader in mind, without profanity or gratuitous content. The new books will have Christian themes and faith-based stories along with the romance!

Evie (Socially Awkward Lonely-Hearts Club, Part 1), a Christian Chick-Lit Romance: Have Accent, Will Snog

 What readers are saying:
"You did a great job on this book. I loved the relationship between the 4 women, it was so fun to read. I fell in love with Luke and couldn't wait to see where their relationship went. I am looking forward to reading your next book and see how Candace's adventure turns out." Candi

"This was awesome! I wish I could write like you do. I'd love to read them all!!!" Sherry

"I actually laughed out loud a couple of times. Can’t wait to read Candace’s story. Just the beginning was hilarious!" Sue Stinnett Blog

Evie is the 1st book in this hysterical series of awkward women attempting to make a love connection. The stories are better read in order: Evie, Candace, Trina, & Sydney.

Socially awkward lonely-hearts unite! Our new dating club will boost you out of that rut, break you free of self-inflicted isolation, and help you figure out exactly what appeals to single males of a marriageable age.

But, is this a case of the socially awkward trying to help the socially awkward? Surely, you aren't that awkward.

Where do these fascinating single men hang out?

~Coffee shops
Until you're so hyped on caffeine you can't stop the flow of words. Maybe that's not helpful when you're already awkward.

~the Gym
It might help if you're actually capable of more than ten minutes on the treadmill. Perhaps you should get in shape before you get in shape?

~Speed-Dating
Surely, that's the answer. Except that guy who fries squirrel for dinner.

~Blind dates set up by your mother
Is he posting your pic on Twitter? Oh, that was you climbing out the bathroom window.

~What about that guy from junior high?
He's singing about you. And everyone's watching.

Sigh. Don't give up. We've got just the guy for you. YES! That one. We knew you'd be pleased.
Socially Awkward Lonely-Hearts, no more...

Evie would rather spout Shakespeare quotes than communicate with a man, until she meets the Brit. Every time Luke opens his mouth, she hears Mr. D'arcy. Ohhh, he's swoon-worthy. If only, she doesn't wet her pants because he may know more Shakespeare than she does!

Socially Awkward Lonely-Hearts Club, a Christian Chick-Lit Romance is laugh-out-loud fun that will fulfill your yearning for romance and comedy in four—count 'em—FOUR happily-every-afters. Lonely-hearts, no more. Be sure to read them all

Just released: 'Tis the Season (Norma Elliot's Secret Journal Book 1)

 I’m Norma Elliot. I know what you’re thinking. Who names their kid Norma nowadays? Believe me, I feel the same as you. 

I’m a ginger―that means redhead. Actually, my hair isn’t red; it’s orange, but I guess redhead sounds better than orangehead. First, because it rhymes, and second, someone may get confused and think that my head is an actual orange. 

I’m ten years old and sharp―what my dad calls me―that means smart, not pointy. 
My story is about what I did during the winter season. No brainer; the title gave that away. It’s mostly about me learning life lessons and spending time with God when I write to him in my secret journal. 
Oh, I need to mention, I’m not perfect; definitely not. Just thought I’d warn you in case you’re expecting to read a story about some cute little angel type girl. If you were, you may want to find a different story to read. But then again, if you’re up for a story about a girl who’s a work in progress―what dad says our old house is―you may just like my story. I really hope you will.
Anyway, bye for now.
