3K Likes Giveaway & Spotlight Week 2 with @pamgodwinbooks

If you’ve been following me then you know that I am a BIG fan of the dark romances. The darker, the better. Well it does come with a HEA required clause because while my heart may be pervy, it’s also sensitive. Don’t you judge me here! I can handle any amount of mindfuckery, so long as it has a HEA. But I digress. 

So last fall, I read this little book called Beneath the Burn. Maybe you’ve heard of it because it’s only ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER! You know when you read a book and the author is so incredibly talented that she’s able to grip you by the throat and capture your heart at the same time with her words? That’s Pam Godwin. 
She’s become an auto buy author for me after just one book, and I haven’t looked back since. I love everything this woman writes. Her stories are dark, captivating, erotic and will blow your ever loving mind. Trust.

I’m so excited to have Pam at Dirty Girl Romance today, so that I may pick the dark caverns of her mind (that sounds a little sinister, doesn’t it?) LOL! Let’s call it an interview then 🙂

DGR: Hi Pam! Thanks so much for being here. Let’s start out simple. Can you introduce yourself to the readers that haven’t yet discovered the dark and erotic awesome that is you?

PG: Hey ladies! Well, as you probably guessed, I’m a shameless romantic. Not the sappy kind but the painful, angsty, scrape the fringes of sanity romantic.I’ma lifelong vegetarian, I carry a Ruger 9mm, and 23 years ago I shared a glance with a stranger across a parking lot and knew in that moment I would marry him. We’ve been torturing each other ever since. 🙂


DGR: You’ve written some of my most favorite darker romances. Is that your preferred genre or do you think you’d ever make it to the land of sunshine and butterflies? (Not that I want you too btw 😉 )


PG: Horror is my first love, but those axe-wielding, damaged monsters are rarely sexy enough. Dark romance is horror basted in sensual masculinity and filthy words. It reaches inside your torment-loving pleasure centers and shoves you out of your comfort zone. So yeah, I prefer this genre. That said, I’ve always had a fascination with paranormal and sci-fi, especially vampires, and plan to return to the world of weird and speculative someday. But no sunshiny vampires. I’ll leave those to YA, a genre I’ll never write in.


DGR:  Who are some of your favorite authors right now?

PG: Jacqueline Carey will always be my favorite. I also love Karina Halle, Joey W. Hill, and Kresley Cole.


DGR:  Without thinking too long about it, tell me your top 5 favorite books….and go!


PG: The Kushiel Series by Jacqueline Carey, The Vampire Queen Series by Joey W. Hill, The Last Hour of Gann by R. Lee Smith, After by Varian Krylov, and Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton


DGR:  You’ve written some very tortured characters, and I realize this is probably like asking you to pick a favorite child, but who was your favorite to write?


PG: Van Quiso, who really is a child in a way. During my time in his head, I learned as he learned. Love isn’t a miracle cure, but selfless love can be an impetus for change. Van made a lot of mistakes, some unforgiveable, and as I wrote his story, I didn’t want him to be forgiven so much as I wanted him to be accepted, flaws and all. Oh, how I love flawed characters and Van wears his unapologetically.


DGR:  Now your stalkers…erm…fans, are dying to know; are you going to continue with the Deliver series? Any hints? Please? Or would you have to shoot me if you told me?

PG: I will probably continue the Deliver series.Eventually. I prefer to write stand-alones, each with a new world and a new cast of characters. So after I write a few more stand-alones, we’ll see.

DGR:  I know that if I had to go without coffee, I’d fear for public safety. I have this condition called RagingBitchitis if I don’t have at least one cup. What are some things you would never be able to go without?

PG: Sex. Yeah, you’re all grinning and nodding your heads. Dirty girls.You get it.

DGR: What started out as a pervy need to catch glimpses of Charlie Hunnam’s naked ass, turned into a SoA addiction for me. Do you have any favorite shows you’re obsessed with? 

PG: My answer is going to make you groan, but I don’t watch TV or movies. The only show that held my interest was The Walking Dead. Even then, I grew bored after a few episodes. I’d rather be reading it.


DGR:  What’s one thing that most people don’t know about you?


PG: I’m an insomniac and can only sleep in one or two hour spurts. I fall asleep reading. I wake in the middle of the night and read. And I don’t use an alarm clock, because I’m up before the sun…usually reading.

DGR:  What’s up next for you? What are you working on? Any tidbits or crumbs you can share with us?


PG: I’m mid-way through a Romantic Thriller. I haven’t revealed the title or blurb yet, but I’ll tell you about the photo-shoot for the cover. I borrowed a racing motorcycle, bought a helmet, rented a tux, bribed a male model, and slept with the photographer (hubby has a multitude of talents LOL). The cover is going to be ahhhmazing. Can’t wait to share it with you.

DGR:  Anything you’d like to leave the readers with?


PG: I’ll leave you with the wise words of Tiffany Reisz.“It’s not erotica until someone gets hurt.”
