It's hard to believe that Canyonland Press's first anniversary is February 1, 2013. The year has gone fast, we've experimented a bit, and hopefully we've grown. But we need your help. All of the editors work and/or write full time. We need your feedback to know whether this endeavor is something of value. So please take the survey on the right side of this article, be sure to answer all four questions. It will be up until January 17, please respond before then. Thank you for all of your support this year.

Winter Reading
What are you reading during the long winter months? The Canyonland Press editors are going to take the opportunity to give you some suggestions. And because our favorites are our own books...

Marie Higgins wants to know: Need something to read during these long winter months? Well, here in Utah, it’s been snowing like CRAZY! So there are a lot of people who snuggle and read by the fireplace instead going outside. I wish I could do that, but I don’t have a fireplace. However, I do love to snuggle…and I especially love to read. Here are a few books I suggest reading for these ‘snuggle / fireplace’ times.

Mary Martinez loves suspense: My favorite winter theme is edge of the seat. My Beckett Series does the trick. The third book will be out at the first of March. I think these will make you want to settle close to a fire.

When one of their own is threatened, their bond is as strong as a badge of steel.

Amy Durham recommends:
"The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green
Two teenagers dealing with a life and death situation with grace, humor, and love! This book made me laugh, made me cry, made me think, and made me feel. In Hazel and Gus's journey, you'll find nuggets of wisdom and beautiful romance... heartbreaking reality and the kind of dreaming that makes you believe anything is possible. HIGHLY recommended!

Once Again by Amy Durham

Reincarnation sucks! Unless it comes with a cute guy. That’s what sixteen year-old Layla Bradford discovers when she moves to Sky Cove, Maine, a small-town she thought was ordinary, but turns out to be an episode of “Cold Case” on steroids. Read More...

ONCE AND FOR ALL By Amy Durham (Coming Soon)
What happens when 180 pounds of football star collides with 105 pounds of art geek?

An ancient curse springs to life, of course.

Phoebe Campbell is anything but popular. Todd Miller is the epitome of the high school jock. Their socially opposite worlds collide when they are paired to work together on a project for art class. Attempting to cooperate for the sake of their assignment, Todd and Phoebe begin to look past preconceived notions and see each other for who they truly are. As genuine feelings begin to develop between them, they find themselves plagued by dangerous shape-shifting episodes and unexplained telepathic connections. Read More...

Anna Sugg suggests: Get comfortable in your favorite chair, grab a warm blanket, let your dog or cat cuddle up next to you and read a good book(s). Here’s some suggestions: Yellow Creek Novel Book One, Secret Past

Blurb: Sarah Shapiro searches through the ruins of her grandmother’s crumbling, deteriorating farmhouse and discovers, buried beneath the floor, a metal box and a Tommy gun. While trying to unravel the mystery of her grandmother’s secret past with the contents in the box, the Tommy gun disappears, her soon to be ex-husband is killed and how could she possibly fall in love with a deceiving contractor, who happens to have a wife.
This great read can be found on Amazon

If you’re still in the mood for some holiday reads, I have three Christmas stories on Amazon. I’d love to hear from you and don’t forget to write a review.
