Award –Winning Author Pamela Fagan Hutchins Sets Off on 60-City Nationwide RV Book Tour

Houston, TX, SkipJack Publishing – Award-winning author Pamela Fagan Hutchins sets off on a 60-city RV book tour this summer promoting her debut romantic thriller, the Amazon-bestseller Saving Grace, as well as the mid-summer release of the second novel in the Katie & Annalise series, Leaving Annalise. With a revolving lineup of offspring driving the RV and her one-eyed Boston terrier in tow, Hutchins will be traveling around the country hosting author events at bookstores, meeting with book clubs and writers groups, and presenting on topics ranging from “Deliberate Creativity” to “What kind of idiot indie publishes, and how can I be one too?”

“How lucky am I to get to meet readers and see so many great spots in the US while spending one-on-one time with my kids?” Hutchins said. “I can’t wait to get started!”

The Katie & Annalise series kicks off with Saving Grace, which sweeps readers away to fall in love with a rainforest jumbie house named Annalise and Texas attorney Katie Connell who is as much a danger to herself as the island bad guys. Small Press Bookwatch raved, “A riveting drama with plenty of twists and turns for an exciting read, highly recommended.” Kirkus Reviews praised Saving Grace as “A lively romantic mystery that will likely leave readers eagerly awaiting a sequel.”

Leaving Annalise is the next stop in the series, where an unexpected and hotly fought-over little boy, two dead bodies, and the vandalism of her jumbie home teeter Katie between her beloved Annalise and the love of her life. “Could not put it down and did not want it to end!” advance reader Rebecca Weiss said. “As much as I loved Saving Grace, I love Leaving Annalise even more,” claimed Rhonda Erb, an editor and early reader.

The Katie & Annalise series is packed with mystery, romance, and a touch of magical realism, and provides readers with an experience that is zany, tropical, intense, and eerie, all at once. The books combine an exotic setting with vivid characterization, authentic-sounding dialogue, and real emotion, all balanced with page-turning doses of action and suspense. Hutchins captures the spirit of the Caribbean islands with captivating and imaginative stories that readers will find fun, witty, exciting, and difficult to put down.

Hutchins writes award-winning mysterious women’s fiction and relationship humor nonfiction. She has authored seven books, including Leaving Annalise, Saving Grace, Hot Flashes And Half Ironmans, How To Screw Up Your Kids, How to Screw Up Your Marriage, Puppalicious and Beyond, and The Clark Kent Chronicles. She is also a contributing author to Easy to Love But Hard to Raise and the upcoming Easy to Love But Hard to Teach from DRT Press, Ghosts and OMG – That Woman! from Aakenbaaken & Kent, and Prevent Workplace Harassment from Prentice Hall.

Hutchins is the winner of the Parenting/Divorce category of USA Best Books in 2012 (with award winners in Narrative Nonfiction and Women’s Health too). She won the 2010, 2011, and 2012 Contemporary Fiction awards from the Houston Writers Guild, and their 2012 Nonfiction award. She also won the 2010 Writers League of Texas Romance award, and the 2012 Houston Writers Guild Ghost Story award.

A workplace investigator, employment attorney, and former human resources executive, Hutchins lives with her husband and several of their young adult offspring plus 200 pounds of pets in Houston, but their hearts remain in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.

    Jacksonville is NOT close enough; where is a Tampa/Orlando visit?

    • Pamela says:

      Unfortunately, we had some drop dead dates to make, and we couldn’t make the “have to” places and drop dead dates and go any further south in Florida! Same thing for the Northwest. My mother in law lives in Jax, so it’s a good dropping off point for me. I’ll hit FL comprehensively next year.

    Shoot, now that I’m in Austin, you are going to Phoenix. Well, when you have more details about location and time, I’ll send it to a bunch of friends and try to round up a group for you. Changing Hands does a lot with Indy books (it’s in Tempe) and in Scottsdale, The Poisoned Pen, has all mysteries and seems to love to host authors.

    • Pamela says:

      Wow, thanks Linda, both for the info and for offering to round up friends. You’re the best :-)
