Bee Balms & Burgundy

If you enjoy strong-but-feminine women, sexy love stories, hot romance stories, romantic fiction, romance novels, sensual fiction, women's fiction, sentimental fiction, great novellas, award-winning fiction, Nicholas Sparks, Nora Roberts, or Richard Paul Evans, you can read chapter five of Nelson's Bronte Prize-winning novella, Bee Balms & Burgundy, right now for free at (See for yourself why it beat out Nicholas Sparks, Nora Roberts, and Richard Paul Evans, among others, for the title of "North America's Best Love Story of the Year.")

Bee Balms & Burgundy (Debut Novella)..... First Book

In this rousing story, Nick May is a successful Gen X entrepreneur now
living in Vancouver. At 32, he's lost patience with live-in girlfriend
Sonja, as well as business partner Jason. Upon a late summer visit to
his hometown of St. Paul, he reacquaints with childhood neighbor and
lifelong friend Mia. Unbeknownst to Nick, Mia is now a post-mastectomy
breast cancer survivor, with her cancer currently in remission. She also
harbors another powerful secret—one that will change Nick forever.

To every woman who has fought
the battle, and the subsequent
self-doubt and fear,
win or lose...

I offer my respect

Peace & Love


Two for Tuesday ...... Second Book in Progress

Emmanuelle Foshey—“Manny” to friends and lover—is a 29-year-old former
Chicago jazz dancer and current Minneapolis ad exec. Seven months ago,
in a strange event, she met publisher and philanthropist Cameron Stiles.
Today, after mending their past heartbreaks, Manny and Cam nurture an
epic, immaculate romance.

Cam lives in the small town of Cannon Valley, 40 minutes south of his
St. Paul offices; he lives in a cute raspberry sorbet Victorian, at
which Manny spends most of my time. Cam’s seventeen-year-old neighbor,
Corey, is a California transplant; he’s also a domineering, single
mother’s only son and a social outcast. Every day, Corey finds it
increasingly difficult to cope in his new surroundings. Cam and Manny
lend a wing; day or night, there’s almost nothing they won’t do for the
kid; they adore him.

Then, tragedy strikes…

And nothing remains the same.

Nelson Pahl's Bee Balms and Burgundy Review by J. Kaye Oldner

Laura West dubs Nelson Pahl as 
“America's Next Great Writer”. She goes on to say "Every once in a while a writer comes along that demands we take notice; one that avails just the right meter, tempo, and rhythm; one that can engulf us in a story and keep us glued throughout 200 pages; one that offers a style sure to be emulated by his aspiring peers, both of his generation and generations to come. Nelson Pahl is just that writer.” 

After reading Bee Balms & Burgundy, I agree. This author… Continue

A Book Review by Martha Jette for Bee Balms & Burgundy

The Author's Note at the beginning of this novella left me wondering.

"To every woman who has fought the battle, and the subsequent self-doubt and fear, win or lose.... I offer my respect." Nelson

I thought perhaps that Nelson Pahl referred to the timeless battle women face when it comes to love - from finding the right partner, to attempting to build a relationship with a man that would last a lifetime. Boy, was I wrong!

As the story of 30-something… Continue

Hi Nelson,
I hope all is doing well with your book. My book has been out since November 2006. It is listed in about 180 bookstores worldwide. I am a new author. So my question is, am I off to a good start? Also does it take you a long time to receive royalties? I also wanted to find out more about virtual tours. How is that working out for you?

That is pretty much how I feel. Thanks for the words of inspiration Nelson. Thank you so much for you invitation. I'm working hard to make changes happen in 2008 and I could use all the help I can get. Thank you for adding me as a friend and helping me make a difference.

Thanks for the invite, and good luck with the book!

Thanks for the thoughts; I appreciate them.

Unfortunately, you have me pegged wrong. I don't write in any specific genre. In fact, my second books is a tragedy, my third book is horror fiction, and my fourth book is a drama. Truth be told, I may never write another love story in my life. Who knows? I do know this, though: genre-writing bores me. So...

Again, thanks for the thoughts. Good fortune will everything.

Hi Nelson. Our genre's are too far apart for either of us to read the other, but diversity is good for the literature world. Welcome to the fold. May it go well with you. Jim
