July Book News


Montana Women Writers join our northern neighbors in celebrating

I traded many River with No Bridge bookmarks and author business cards with writer friends old and new at the Historical Novel Society 2017 North American Conference in Portland, Oregon, last weekend. Fellow MWW member Janice McCaffrey and I listened to Pulitzer Prize winner Geraldine Brooks, an Aussie by birth, speak about the process of writing. A former journalist and war correspondent, Brooks turned to writing fiction when she became a mother. She refers to the process of writing a novel as “mess, mess, mess, art.” Accurate, I’d say.

River with No Bridge has been released for a little over a week. It’s available online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kindle. You can also pick it up in a store in or near Glacier National Park. One of these is the historic Polebridge Mercantile, located close to the novel’s setting on the North Fork of the Flathead River. river with no bridgeIf you’re in the area on the 4th of July, Polebridge hosts the best parade and barbecue around.

Only one week left for my novel Instrument of the Devil in the Kindle Scout contest, which ends July 7. Then the final decision goes to the great unseen gods of Amazon.

As this contest draws to a close, I have to thank you for your support! I’m grateful for your nomination, as well as for having wonderful friends who’ve been sharing the voting link with email contacts, on Facebook, and other social media. Facebook has brought better than half of the “hits,” far more than I would have imagined. Guess I have to change my Luddite ways and join the 21st century!

To show my appreciation for your help, I want to send a FREE eBook of Instrument of the Devil to everyone who voted for it, whether or not it “wins” the contest. Please visit my website http://debbieburkewriter.com and enter your email in the “subscribe box” on the right side of the screen. I’ll send you a notice when your FREE copy is available to download.

In case you have additional reader friends who might like to check out Instrument of the Devil, here’s the link once more:


No matter the contest’s outcome, please know you have my heartfelt gratitude for your friendship and support in my quest to publish Instrument of the Devil.
