So, this is not something you see every day—a book cover that actually looks like the real deal!

My daughter is in Montana and look what she sent me:

It’s been years since I visited Montana, but I cherish the memories of the wide-open spaces and gorgeous vistas. Here are a few of the pics she’s shared on social media. I hope to show you more when she gets home.

Below is one of my favorite shots because it’s 100-degrees here today and super dry. Reading in the rain! What a novel idea!

Last week’s Q&A was: Have you ever been to Alaska? (That’s our RV destination goal next summer. Fingers crossed.)

Only 10% of those answering have been to Alaska, but nearly every one of you wants to go. And of that ten percent who visited, 99% loved the experience and shared many wonderful hints about traveling there. The only person who didn’t have great memories of Alaska lived there at, she admits, the wrong time in her life. I can honestly say the same thing about the Black Hills. I have many fond memories from when I visited the Hills, but living in a log cabin in the mountains as a young mother with two babies was not a great experience. I felt isolated because there were no sidewalks where I lived, and my nearest family member was twenty miles away. Funny how important your frame of mind is to any experience.

Thanks so much, everyone, for adding to my knowledge. Hopefully, travel will have opened up enough to make a “northern exposure” adventure possible next summer.

My two randomly selected winners this week are:

Barbara VanderWel – No (but would love to go)
A Yi – Yes (honeymoon trip—how romantic is that?!)

(Barbara and A Yi congrats. Please email me your pick of either a $5 Starbucks or a $5 Amazon gift card.)


This week’s Q&A: Do you read HOLIDAY books all year round? Yes or No ? (Asking because I was invited to include one of my Christmas-themed books in a promotion, but opted to do it myself. See below. I did the math: it’s a great deal!)

(Two winners will be chosen by random drawing to receive either a $5 Starbucks gift card or a $5 Amazon gift card. Please reply the usual ways: email or on my DebraSalonenAuthor Facebook page.)

A bit of Christmas magic reminds two lost souls that
love is the reason for the season.

Man up and come out of hiding—or the dream dies.

As the dreaded holidays approach, Rufus Miller breaks his golden rule: silence. Sentinel Pass’s resident recluse may be a social outcast with rusty people skills, but with his late brother’s legacy hanging in the balance, he’ll try anything to sell his Dream Houses—the rustic, three-dimensional “dream catchers” he creates from branches and bark. To fully engage the Christmas market, he requires a marketing ninja. Rachel Grey drives a Porsche and dresses like a runway model who made a wrong turn at Denver, but her positivity could woo a hermit crab from its shell. Maybe she’s the answer to a wish he’s never allowed himself to make.

Is her new client a living, breathing Sasquatch—or Santa Claus in the making?

Rachel Grey’s career re-boot in the Black Hills of South Dakota requires a big, splashy marketing campaign. Discovering this year’s “must have” Christmas gift—a novel, one-of-a-kind sort of “wishing jar” to hold secrets, hopes and dreams written on rolled slips of paper—could be just the ticket. Convincing backwoods artisan and self-imposed outcast Rufus Miller to shed his disguise and rejoin humanity brings unexpected benefits—like falling in love. Until Rufus’s past—and true identity—threatens to ruin everything.

Happy reading,


Next week: Forget Christmas, let’s talk Valentine’s Day!
