Rights to my first novella (and the one that finalled in the Carol awards) have just reverted to me. We will publish the novellas as four separate titles, tied together under the series title Snowbound Colorado Christmas. I'm delighted with the cover!

Colorado suffered its worst ever blizzard in early December 1913 (picture on the cover is an actual street scene from the storm). The snow leaves my heiress heroine and immigrant chauffeur stranded at Denver's opulant Brown Palace.

This is a very interesting time period. There aren't that many books written during that time. The books sound really good.

Congratulations, Darlene! I love the cover - it really grabs my interest and makes me wish I had the book in hand right now to start reading.

Frances, I've been in bed most of the time since we made this cover ... unable to get on my desktop computer. Someday soon I hope!

I'm a Colorado native and have been in some serious snowstorms. One time on Monarch Pass snow and fog suddenly obscured our vision. We were going around curves, meeting cars on a two-lane highway that dropped up into a deep gorge.
"Lord, clear our way," I prayed, and in about one minute it all lifted and we could see where we were going. Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17: 20 God moved the storm and fog instead of the mountain.
