February 1st, Farewell Issue

Thank you all for your support this past year. The editors at Canyonland Press agreed to trial run of six months, then we extended it to a year. Unfortunately, we have not been as successful as we’d hoped. Each of us have full time writing careers and some of us full time day jobs to boot. 
So we’re sorry to say we’re closing our doors.
Please come and visit us at our individual sites.

Amy Durham Farewell
It's been a privilege to work with the staff here at Canyonland Press for the past year. Reading and writing - my two favorite pastimes - are solitary activities, and I've loved the opportunity to share the joy of both with my friends here and those whose came by to visit. Although we're closing up shop, I'll always have fond memories of our venture and the things I learned along the way. Making connections is a vital part of being an author, and I like to think I've made several here among my Canyonland friends. Thanks to Mary Martinez for bringing me in to this group and for allowing me the chance to be a part of something really unique! And thanks to each Canyonland writer who I've had the chance to get to know. It's been a fun ride!

It’s with a heavy heart that I say farewell to our readers. I have learned a lot from my time as an editor at Canyonland Press. The articles were very well done and some surprised me because I had learned something new. I will miss reading the articles from the other editors and discovering the Librarian Recommendation.

Although this is good-bye to Canyonland Press, I will still be around writing stories. I’m very active with Facebook, so if you’d like to become my friend and keep in touch with me that way, go to this link -

I also love to interview other authors and I’m always part of a book giveaway blog hop, so please follow my blog to keep updated and enter to win free books –

I’m sad to have to say goodbye to Canyonland Press. Even as one of the editors, I’ve especially enjoy reading the articles, librarian recommendations, and even the recipes. Working with my fellow editors has been a privilege and I will continue to support them in their writing careers. A huge ‘Thank You’ goes out to all our followers for visiting us and supporting our emagazine each month. I’ll miss all the friends we’ve made in our short year and sincerely hope you will stay in contact with us by visiting our sites often.

You can always find me on my blog: and my websites: or Please stay in touch with me on Facebook at!/ and twitter at
Mary Martinez Farewell
I had such high hopes when I contacted my fellow writers to help with my vision of a readers eMagazine. I penned a business plan. Had goals spelled out, mission statement. It was set for success, or so I thought. However, no matter how much we promoted, even with the help of our librarian recommendations and well written articles, we not only did not meet our six month goals, but we have yet to reach our first quarter goals.

So with a heavy heart it's time to say goodbye. The editors of Canyonland Press have each put in hours of love and work to make this work. I thank all of them. I also thank those of you who are loyal followers. I hope all of you visit us often at our other sites.

You can all fine me at my web site
Mary's Garden Blog, where you'll find author interviews, recipes, reviews and all kinds of weird things.

  1. I'm sorry to see you go. I've really enjoyed Canyonland Press. Good luck to you all on your other writing endeavors. Thank you.

  2. It is this type of interesting thing with this post of yours. I had been interested with all the topic along with the flow in the story. Keep up to date the truly amazing work.

    God's credibility is not predicated by a vote of confidence by the majority. God does not need to have His truth validated by the masses. The Bible and the Bible alone is God's truth to mankind. No creed book, Bible commentary, nor congregational church vote is needed to affirm God's credibility.

    The entire population of the world disbelieved God when He told them is they ate from the tree in the middle of the garden or touched it, that they would die. (Genesis 3:4)

    Adam and Eve died even though the majority opinion was in their favor. God's truth was not voided because the total population of the world disbelieved it.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    Jesus said he who has believed shall be saved. The vast majority of the world disbelieves that. The majority opinion does not invalidate the words of Jesus.

    Jesus said he who has been baptized shall be saved. The majority of the world believes water baptism is not essential in order for men to be saved. Majority opinion is not necessary to affirm, establish, or validate the words of Jesus Christ.

    God's credibility does not depend on the majority of the worlds population to confirm, validate, endorse, nor corroborate His truth.

    GOD'S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE. The truth in the Bible is not subject to affirmation by a majority vote.
