Relations by Pamela D. Beverly
Please welcome Pamela D. Beverly to my blog! She’s here to tell us about her new release, Relations.
Tell us about yourself:
I’m Pamela D. Beverly and I was raised in Washington, DC. I grew up the fourth out of five children. I like to refer to myself as the “Jacqueline-of-all-Trades but the Mistress of None” because I know a little about a lot of subjects. Not so great when it came to completing college (I didn’t because I couldn’t make up my mind about what I wanted to do with my life). Great for being a game-show contestant, for which one day I might audition (laughs). Over the years, as a hobby, I continued with my first love, writing. But back then I wasn’t sure if I could make a living doing it. My hobbies are traveling, and until recently, working out, listening to all types of music and radio talk shows and of course, writing.
What types of music do you listen to?
I listen to all types of music: R & B, oldies but goodies, country, gospel, you name it. In the car, I’m a perpetual station hopper. I can listen to five types of music and talk radio within an hours’ time on the radio while I’m at work.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?
I love New Orleans! I love the atmosphere as soon as I step off the plane! Everyone is friendly and fun-loving. They don’t even have to know you before they make you feel at home. Can’t stand the humidity there and it’s a little grimy in some areas (laughs) but I just love the feeling I get whenever I’m there. And the food! No one worries about calories or coronaries in that city! I love it!
What is your favorite body part on a man?
My favorite body part on a man is his voice. If that’s not considered a “body part”, then I would say his eyes are the first things I notice.
Does size matter?
Did you always want to be a writer?
Mostly but I kind of thought of it as a dream.
If not, what else did you want to do?
Before that, I wanted to be a cartoonist.
Finish this sentence: My ideal mate must have the following qualities…
Courteousness, seriousness about his profession, a sense of humor, empathy toward others and an innate sexiness.
What has been your biggest mistake as an author?
My biggest mistake as a writer was not garnering pre-publicity buzz for my book. This can be difficult to do when your marketing materials don’t coincide with the timeframe of the book’s release so the book is live but you don’t have anything with which to publicize it. You need these things to do a launch or anything else.
Do you have a single book or character that’s dear to your heart, and why?
The character that is dearest to my heart would have to be the main character in my novel, Relations, Frank Ellis. He is the most like me–impatient and intolerant when it comes to injustice. There are times when he is misunderstood and I can definitely relate to that!

Where can copies of your novel be purchased?
Frank Ellis has it all-good looks, a charismatic personality that draws people to his financial seminars in droves, and a multitude of women for the choosing. Unfortunately, it isn’t enough anymore.
As Frank leads one of his entertaining seminars on financial planning, one audience member captures his attention-the beautiful Delilah Carpenter from Savannah, Georgia. Bewitched by her charming accent and sexy curves, he is thrilled when he encounters her again in the hotel bar after the seminar. They go to dinner, but not before he has had too much to drink. After he makes a less-than-favorable impression, he passes out at the table, leaving Delilah to ensure he gets back to his room safely. When he awakens the next morning and discovers she has already checked out, Frank wonders if he will ever get a chance to redeem himself.
Frank and Delilah come from different races, different backgrounds, and different parts of the country. But in a passionate affair of two lonely hearts, only time will tell if all of that really matters.
