I've included links to the most popular online sites, but I believe it'll also be available on others.
Here's the back cover copy to give you an idea what it's all about:
Celia Anderson doesn't need anything for Christmas except a few more boarders, which are hard to come by in this small mining town. She certainly doesn't have a husband on her Christmas wish list. But when a wandering carpenter finds lodging at her boarding house, she admits that she might remarry if she found the right man--the kind of man who would bring her roses for Christmas. It would take a miracle to get roses during a harsh Wyoming winter. But Christmas, after all, is the time for miracles . . .
Amanda Cabot invites readers to cozy up with a romantic, heartwarming tale of the greatest gift of all--love.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation, better known as WYDOT, is responsible for the placement, construction and maintenance of snow fences, and it's a big job. How big? There are more than two million -- yes million! -- linear feet of snow fences in the state. I don't know about you, but I was impressed with that number.
Did you ever wonder about the placement of the snow fences? I hadn't, but it turns out that that's the responsibility of WYDOT's Winter Research Teams. Those lucky employees get to travel the highways in the worst weather the state can offer -- think heavy snow and 40 mph or higher winds -- to see where the worst drifting is occurring. I'm thankful that I'm a writer and not part of one of those teams!
So, tell me, are there snow fences where you live? If not, what other weather-related things do you see along the highways?

The races aren't the only part of the derby. There's also a costume contest. Don't you love this little guy's hat?
