Montana Born’s new summer series is off to a great start and the Facebook party on Thursday was a huge hit with readers. Thank you to all of you who could attend! I love that so many of you were there to enjoy the fun and the giveaways.
Book two in the Marietta Fair series, Cowgirl Come Home by Debra Salonen is available today and I couldn’t be happier. Debra’s such a great writer with a strong voice and such wonderful talent. I love that she’s a Tule author as it’s always a treat to read one of her books! I knew I had to invite her as a guest on my blog and she agreed.
Here’s Debra Salonen to talk to us about Arts and Crafts, Fair Style. Welcome, Debra!
My July 18th Tule Publishing release, Cowgirl Come Home, is part of the Big Marietta Fair series. My heroine, Bailey Jenkins, is an artist who works in jewelry. Under different circumstances, Bailey would have entered her pieces in the Arts and Crafts competition, but blue ribbons don’t pay bills. So, instead, her work is on display in Exhibit Hall-A, with the other Marietta vendors.
When I go to our local County Fair every year, one of my favorite exhibits is: Arts and Crafts. I am completely blown away by the creativity within my small community. Inevitably, there’s one photograph that reaches out and pulls me into a story, a candid moment in time. If there’s no Blue Ribbon or Best-in-Show sign hanging on my favorite, I use the power of my “People’s Choice” vote to pick.
Ten or so years ago, my hubby won Best of Show for this photograph. (image) It’s called, simply: Blue. The fellow in the picture was an old-time cowboy, who tended the two-hundred-acre ranch behind us. Everybody called him Blue. He appeared in my very first published short story, which came out in Country Magazine in 1990. The title of the piece is: The Bulls That Fell From the Sky.
Until his death four years ago, Blue lived in a little trailer without electricity or running water–just him, his dog and his rattletrap truck. (I use that expression with affection–it did rattle.) He was our friend, and this photo hangs on my wall where I see it every day…and smile.
This year, I’m hoping to see my ten-year-old granddaughter’s painting displayed at the fair. She entered the Young Master’s contest through our local Arts Counsel earlier this spring and won First Place in her age group.
My daughter won Best of Show for an oil painting when she was the same age. I’ll never forget the pride and validation that ribbon gave her. “I’m an artist, Mommy,” she said to me.
Now, she’s giving back by teaching young budding artists like her niece. I love the full-circle feel of this and I can’t wait to visit the Arts and Crafts exhibit at the Mariposa Fair this year.
What about you? What’s your favorite part of the fair? (There is no wrong answer here.) Even if you’re not fond of fairs, please reply to be included in the pool to win this prize.

It looks like a great story! We haven’t been to a fair since our kids were little but it is funny because the fair we went to was in the same town where our son ended up going to college many years later.
I didn’t get to our fair last year, but I’m going this year–and will probably be looking for Marietta people. LOL.
The vendors. I have bought some unique belts, purses, sunglasses, and various knitted and quilted items most times I’ve attended.
Me, too, Laney4. The purse that is in my website prize was made by a lady to sells/displays at the fair. I bought a fabulous apron there 2 years ago.
I love fairs. The games are fun, but the food is the best part, especially the greasy fried selections.
Janiec, I never try the game. I have terrible depth perception. Can’t hit a thing. People would laugh.
My favorite fair activity is of course the food! Followed by the animals. Love the petting zoo and my daughter the pony rides!
Brandy, I loved!!! putting my kids on the pony rides when they were little. Great memory, thanks for the reminder.
My favorite is the food and the Crafts exhibit.Thank you for the opportunity to win.I enjoy reading your books.Have a wonderful weekend. Cowgirl Come Home by Debra Salonen is a wonderful book.
Thanks so much, Tina. Releasing a new book is like sending your kid to kindergarten…will the other kids like him/her? So happy to know you enjoyed it.
I don’t have many fair experiences. I did like going when I was a kid but I don’t really enjoy it anymore. The one here isn’t very nice.
If a fair isn’t fun or nice, it’s not worth wasting the money to go. That’s for sure. Hope you’ll enjoy the Big Marietta Fair vicariously. Much cheaper, very clean and a lot of fun!
My favorites are the vendors/food! So yummy – but so unhealthy! Love it:)
Melanie J, even food snobs like have to splurge once in a while. Thanks for commenting.
My favorites are the good,and the games. Love fairs and the atmosphere.
I forgot to mention People Watching. So fun, right?
The Fair is so much fun. I love cotton candy, funnel cakes and corn dogs. I love to see the animals and the sows. Wonderful memories of childhood and a day at the fair with my grandparents.
I usually go these days with my grandchildren, and I hope they’ll look back with fondness, too. Thanks, Rosemary K.
Cant wait to read your book. Love the whole series. Wish I was talented but am not, love country fairs, especially the food.
Diana Kaye, you’re obviously a very talented reader. 🙂 I’m so happy to hear you love the series. Jane has a whole bunch of wonderful stories coming your way, including 3 more from me.
The petting zoo!
Have you ever petted an alpaca, Kathy? My next book, Nobody’s Cowboy, features an alpaca rancher and I got to pet several during my research. SWEET!
My favorite part of the fair are the animals and the 4-H exhibits! That and just spending time with the family!!! <3
Good comment, Melanie Weaver. 4-H and FFA are huge parts of our county fair. A great way for kids to learn about agriculture and earn money for college.
Just took the grandkids to the county fair a couple of days ago. We will hit the fantastic Ohio State Fair in a week or so too. I love the fairs, the livestock, vendors, and always the food… and the kiddy rides… lol
Have fun, Deb M. Sounds great!
I just bought this book and I can’t wait to read it. I read Debra’s book before and I like her writing.
You made my morning, Stephie. Thanks so much.
Looking forward to reading it!
Thanks, Kathy P. I hope you’ll try the whole series. It’s going to be great!
I remember a lady who made the most amazing jewelry out of tiny dried wildflowers under glass. I was fascinated by that and always loved the quilts.
Monica, the quilts! Yes! They are really something to see. Thanks for the reminder.
I would have to say that I love the feeling the Fair gives me. It rushes back all those memories of being a kid, so filled with fear and excitement all mushed together! The dizzying thrill of the rides, tantalizing smells of the food, laughter, and music! Now I get to experience all those amazing things through the eyes of my children!
Beautifully put, Jenni! Thanks for commenting.
I was lucky to read an ARC of Cowgirl, Come Home and I really enjoyed it.
In Israel we don’t have fairs like in the US but I wish we had because they sound like so much fun.
Thanks so much, Moran! So happy you liked it!
I love the fair… best part is the food…gotta diet for a week just to eat the fried food at the fair. I also love the arts/crafts. Love to support the local arts and crafts people.
I think I’ve gained weight writing about fair food. LOL.
I love our county fair! I love to ride the Ferris wheel with my youngest son, get funnel cakes & cotton candy, watch the demolition derby & look at the animals.
our county fair is pretty awesome. i love to watch the truck and tractor pulls, and eat cotton candy!
Demo derby. If Tule does this next summer, I want to write a Demolition Derby story. Oh, yeah!
oops…posted as a reply instead of a comment..
No problem! See my reply. LOL.
I love the food at fairs. The animals are fun too – but the greasy fried foods are the best!
Good thing those calories don’t count. You walk everywhere, right? LOL.
The handwork. we all learned embroidery, crocheting, knitting, sewing. some in 4-H, so it would be there….
My needlework is best left in the drawer. But I have a hankie my grandma made in a frame. I carried it in my wedding. She was amazingly skilled.
Hi. Sounds like an interesting book and by an author I have not previously read. Would love to win.
Good luck, Cindy. And thanks to Jane for introducing me to some new readers. If you win, you’ll get two of my Superromances. I love bigger stories with secondary characters who have stories of their own.
Oops, forgot about fairs in my comment. I actually have not been to affair in years (health issues). But my home town had a yearly fair and it was fun to go and see friends, family and relatives. And school friends you had not seen all summer. I do miss going to the fair.
Our fair is called a Homecoming, too, and that’s what the Big Marietta Fair felt like to me.
I love the fair! I like going to the Western Washington State Fair (I think that is what is now called – formerly known as The Puyallup Fair). I love to look at the collections, the piglets and other animals, walk through the vendors, “slice it, dice it, etc”, and to sample the not good for you food. Scones are the best here. I went last year with several close friends, and we had such a good time that we plan to go again this year. We watched a friend show her horse, and that was interesting since I have never seen it before.
You make me want to give your fair a try, Sandy M. Have fun!
My favorite part of the fair is looking at all of the hard work the 4-H kids have put into their projects. Everything from building models to sewing, from baking to raising an animal. All of it. I know that these kids will take the skills they learned and use them later in their lives.
I spend hours in those exhibits, Fern Martin. And livestock barns. There are some exotic breeds around now.
I like the idea of the fair, but it always is during the most humid hot time of the year… which I just can’t take anymore.. I miss that glorious fair food!
We sometimes have to deal with high heat. That’s no fun, but we can go at time when it cools down. Sorry you’re missing out. But you can read six books that will bring you right into the heart of the fair–no humidity. I promise. 🙂
I love the food & the people watching! The Ohio State Fair is always fun but I loved the Puyullup Fair when we lived in Washington. Ten years later, I still order boxes of the Fisher Fair Scone Mix to make the scones from that fair at home (my all time favorite fair treat).
Scones, Michelle! I don’t consider those a fast food nor bad for you. I love scones. There’s a great recipe on my blog from an Australian author. It’s called Lemonaide Scones (their lemonade is our 7-Up.)
I love the greasy food, where you don’t have to feel guilty and the memories it immediately brings of going as a child. I won a little stuff black bear once and loved that thing til the stuffing fell out. lol
My daughter had a monkey that her cousin won of her. She carried it around until it’s hand fell off. Broke her heart. Thanks for commenting.
Music, animals, corn dogs, kettle corn & elephant ears!! Love going to the fair! 🙂
The music, Tamelin!!! I’ve seen some great bands–and some really bad ones. It’s a toss-up ,but we still dance under the lights. It’s great!
I finished your book last night and loved it. My favorite part of the fair has to be just walking around and watching people. I never was into the rides when we used to go to one country fair I used to enjoy going in the building and seeing the different crafts and the certain food they always had. it was a bigger one and happened at a race track in NYstate. haven’t gone in years don’t know if they still have it or not. Now the only one I go to the shore one once a year and that one I love the one vendor has good sausage and pepper sandwiches also we always get funnel cakes and share that.
Thank you so much, Donnat! REally appreciate the good feedback! Love sharing these memories with all of you.
Welcome Debra! Our Texas State Fair is great.I always go for the Food!
Hi, Linda! I bet Texas has a great fair. Hope you have a blast this year. I’m so excited to visit San Antonio next week!!
I like fair food–kettle corn, lemonade, corn dogs, pineapple whip, etc. However, I’m not particularly fond of the Missouri State Fair because my husband has to be there–through his work–all eleven days. And it’s usually miserably hot! Great prize (would you even believe that I still haven’t seen The Princess Bride?!?). Thanks for the chance. 🙂
OMG! You haven’t seen The Princess Bride? It’s one of my very favorites. Good luck!!
Debra, your family is very talented. I enjoyed reading your book. It was really good. I don’t really have an exciting fair story to tell. I didn’t go often when I was growing up and still don’t go but maybe every 5-6 years. I mostly enjoy looking in the buildings, at livestock and people watching. My husband partakes in the food stuff since I get an upset if I eat more then one experimental item.
Thank you so much, Janine. So glad you liked the book. I am surrounded by talented/gifted people. I feel very fortunate. I’m cautious about exotic foods for that very reason, too.
I love the fairs. The arts and crafts are the best.
A girl after my own heart, Sharon Baker. Thanks for your comment.
I love fair food. Corn on the Cobb!! AZ fair has nothing on WA fairs. Took our kids to the Evergreen Fait every year and now they take their kids.
Dawn, our fair comes too late for really good corn on the cob. That’s out right now and it’s really, really good. Did you see this cool way of prepping it? http://youtu.be/U10MkdbzS54
Thanks. That’s awesome.
Reads like a book I want to read. Congratulations and looking forward to this book.
Thanks, Tammy Ward. My wonderful publisher is keeping it at 99¢ for one more day (Sat) for all my great blog friends. Hope you enjoy it!
I would LOVE to read these books! Have never read any of Deb’s books, but they are on my list, now! 🙂 I know this will shock most, most people gasp as I tell them…I’m 35 years old and have never seen The Princess Bride! I hear it’s fabulous. Have a good weekend everyone!!!!
Kari N, I am shocked. LOL. It’s one of my faves. Let me know it you watch it. And I am so happy to be on your list. Hugs.
Your book seems very delightful and one which would cause me to lose track of time. My favorite things about the county fair are lemonade, corn on the cob and funnel cakes!
I love those kinds of books, Merle. Reading more has been on my To-Do list. I just started Beauty and the Cowboy. Loving it.
Haven’t been to any
Oh, sorry, bn100. Come to the Big Marietta Fair. We’ll make up it.
used to love going around looking at the entries for pies/baking/jams/quilts etc. and who got what ribbons
Robin, in a small town like ours, it was a hoot to see who took home the blue ribbons. Hot competition let me tell you!
Your book sounds fantastic and I can’t wait to read it. I haven’t been to a fair in years. I can remember going to the state fair with my girlfrind when I was your. We had a blast.
I hope you enjoy it, Quilt Lady–heck, I hope you enjoy all 6 in the series. Some great authors and fun, fun stories.
All I can say –Funnel Cakes
We introduced this concept to our Down-Under friends at the Big Marietta Fair Facebook party. Mouthwatering.
I love going through the animal barns.
The kids around here do a really great job with their animals, Glenda. And they earn lots of money through the auctions.
Your granddaughter is very talented. Amazing lines and colors. She deserved her win! When the kids were younger, school always started with the annual Church fair: they loved it for the rides and hanging out with their friends; I loved it because of all the Italian food and the Filipino food.
Thank you so much, Marelou. She’s going to be on vacation when entries are due so we are juggling this problem. Hope she’s able to enter it.
Can’t wait to read Cowgirl Come Home!! My favorite part of the fair would be the animals. Horses and calves! We have a state fair and a few years back they started a birthing barn. Love it!! And of course each year they have the Budweiser Clydesdales and you can’t go wrong checking them out!
The owners of the alpaca ranch where I did research for my next book have to Clydesdales. Gorgeous horses.
I hope you enjoy Cowgirl Come Home, Heidi! Thank you.
two, not to
The food and all the great exhibits, Quilts etc.
Hi, Roberta. Thanks for participating. 🙂
Welcome Debra. I don’t remember many fairs, but I do remember trying and trying to win a fish by tossing the Ping pong ball in the bowls. I finally won and was so excited until I woke up the next morning and the fish was dead.
Oh, darn, Kimberly. Life is fragile–especially if you’re a fish in a bowl. 😉
OMG, I love going to the fair…. I have ever since my dad took me to my first one when I was a young kid… I love everything about the fair, the vendors, food, candy apples, the unique items that you can only find at a fair. But, my favorite memory would have to be the first time my dad took me for a ride on the ferris wheel, and we stopped at the top, the world looked so vast to me being up there, looking down… It made me realize just how wonderful the world could be.. Thanks again for all of your great giveaways, you are as always a wonderful author.
Barbara, you’re so kind. Thank you. And thanks for the lovely image of you and your dad on the Ferris Wheel. Made me smile.
Fair food and the people. There are some crazy people out there!
Kribss, you are correct. Crazy and great to watch at a fair. I love seeing the body art. I wouldn’t want it on my body but some of it is amazing.
Love the crafts at the Texas State Fair.
Linda, where is the Texas STate Fair? Dallas? Austin? The California fair is in Sacramento. It might be going on right now or in August. I’ve forgotten. It was too big for my taste.
I love looking at the Arts and Crafts that the young people enter for judging–also like checking out some food products that vendors bring–such as honey.
Bonnie, I love buying local honey. Glad for the reminder.
I’ve never entered at a fair, but I love to look at the entries.
Denise, I never have, either. Both my kids have and my hubby. I’m not creative in that way.
I downloaded COWGIRL COME HOME this afternoon. Will have to wait a few days to begin reading as I have 3 books I’m reading right now.
I think my favorite part of a fair is the arts and crafts area. I like seeing the creativity and skill that is displayed – be it photography, painting, or needlework. I might be more interested in the baking if I could sample the wares – lol. Several years ago, hubby & I actually entered some items in our county free fair – mine was cross stitch, his photos. We both won ribbons, but he got a blue one.
Best wishes for your granddaughter’s entry.
Thank you so much, Donna EHD. I hope you enjoy Cowgirl Come Home. Congrats on your ribbons. Validation is always nice–it says you did a job well done. It’s like a good review!!!
Congrats on your book release! I enjoy going to our county fair. I like to see all the animals….sheep and rabbits especially. I also like looking in the arts and crafts displays, and all the photographs. I always eat Indian fry bread with cinnamon and sugar.
Thank you, Linda Mc. Thanks for commenting. India fry bread is delish!
I love the arts & crafts. Especially the quilts & photography. I’m an amateur photographer, so I am always checking out the competition. The closest fair to where I live is the State Fair, in Minnesota. When my 4 kids were little we would go every year. We had to stop when it started costing us too much in addition to the crowds and the allergies everyone has to the animals became too much. They are now in their 20’s & go with friends when they want to attend.
Your book has been downloaded on in my kindle. Looking forward to reading it.
Thanks for grabbing Cowgirl, Eileen A-W. Hope you like it. I hear you on the expense. Too bad, isn’t it?
I am afraid I am one of those not that crazy about fairs. I do like some of the rides. And I like looking thru some of the displays. And I love the corn dogs.
But they have made the fair so expensive. Its stupidly expensive. We have not gone for years.
I agree Lisa. Our fair almost closed down from poor attendance but then they cut prices and people started coming back. If you time it right, you can “attend” the entire Big Marietta Fair for just $6 bucks. LOL. (All the books release at 99¢ for two days–or in my case, three.
We love the two fairs which are close to us. One has the animals, the exhibits, rides and all that crazy fair food. The other is centered around a demolition derby, more rides and two huge parades! I think the parade is my favorite part. xo to you, Debra.
The parade! My heroine used to ride in the parade when she was a girl. It’s part of her backstory. Thanks, Jennifer I.
I haven’t been to a fair in years. I think the last time was the New York State Fair when I was a kid many moons ago. Maybe it’s time for us to go to the county fair!
Come to the Big Marietta Fair, Judy G. Think of all the gas money you’ll save. 😉
I love elephant ears. And congratulations on the new release. Love the books.
Thanks, Elisabeth. This book was a joy to write thanks to my other five fabulous Fair authors–and Jane. She really created the perfect place to write about.
Welcome Debra! I sadly owned briefly visited fairs over the years for the food. But now with little ones, I spend more of my fair share of time at the rides and the animals.
Thanks for your comment, Meghan Finley. Treasure those fair moments–your little ones will be talking about them some day.
I like seeing old friends with their grandchildren and rememebering how we use to have fun at the fair.
Nice image, Jamie Steadman.
I haven’t been to a fair in ages…since I was a kid. Today, I think I would love the crafts, the food!!, and the horses (still!)…
Love Cowgirl Come Home!
Thanks, Jane, for helping us get to know another great author!
So appreciate your kind words, Kerry Croucier. I can’t say enough good things about Jane Porter. Here’s the dedication in Cowgirl Come Home (some people skip the front matter):
With heartfelt thanks to Jane Porter–brilliant visionary, warrior woman, gifted writer, humble saint and…best of all, friend. Jane’s kindness and generosity prompted a few us to award her the title: Jane of the Giant Heart…and Great Hair. You rock, Jane. Thanks for inviting me to the Tule party.
Awwww! Stop it. 😉
Hi, everybody, I lost track of you for a day and look at all these WONDERFUL replies. I love you each and every one.
Finally, I have time to catch up!
I am going to look for your book Deb. And, that is a fantastic photograph that your husband took of Blue…what a great cowboy image. We have a big state fair, but I really enjoy the little ones around that seem more intimate and fun. I always think the contributors a a bunch of creative folks!
Thank you, Library Lady. I think that shot is what they call a: money shot. Only there was no money–only a big purple ribbon…and knowing it immortalized a one-of-a-kind man.
Everything but especially the yummy but oh-so-bad-for-you food!
You got that right, Sabrina. Never go to the fair hungry.
Hi Deb. I have the book and am looking forward to reading it. 🙂
I always loved the Tilt-A-Whirl…and the food, especially elephant ears, funnel cakes and cotton candy.
Hi, Marcy! Thanks for dropping by. Thanks so much for buying the book. I hope you love it. I’m going to have to break down and ride the Tilt O Whirl with my granddaughters this year. Just to say I did it.
Love the cover. Haven’t been to a fair since the kids were little, but always enjoyed them and the excitement in seeing my kids all excited.
Ruth, I love the cover, too. I love all six of them So fresh and different. Tule’s cover artists are world-class. Fairs are definitely for kids. I love taking my granddaughters. Happy reading! Thanks for your comment.
I can’t wait to read the book! I love fairs of any kind. We lived in a small town and would go to fairs all the time. Now I live in Dallas and love the Cotton Wood Arts Festival that they have two times a year. LOVE FAIRS! Thank you for the opportunity to win such. Fun prize!!!
Thank you, Laurie. You happy comment made me feel happy, too. We have several arts festivals around here, and they are delightful.
Your book looks like a great read! At the fair, I love the view from the tippy-top of the ferris wheel, and of course, the funnel cakes!
Hi, Sharon! A reader just sent me a photo of a funnel cake on Facebook. She knew from all these comments that it was a popular choice of fairgoers. Made my mouth water.
Thanks for commenting! Hope you enjoy Cowgirl Come Home.
I’m looking forward to a great read.
At any fair I always love to see the craft work, especially the quilts. I stand in awe.
Mary, the quilts always command my attention. My beloved, late mother-in-law was a quilter. I know the time and work that goes into quilting and I love seeing this amazing form of artwork.
I love the animals and horse show.
Sorry I’m so late commenting. Travel and deadlines! Horse shows are among my faves, too.
The vendors. And the games
Tammy C., I think you’re the first person who mentioned the games. Do you ever win? I am pathetic. Poor depth perception and aim, I guess. I gave up trying years ago. LOL.
I haven’t been to a fair since I was in HS. I like the lights, the Merry Go Round, The Ferris Wheel and people watching!
Laurie G, to me, the fair happens at night–just because you have to see the lights. It’s all part of the atmosphere.
Thanks for your comment.
i know i wont be entered into the context but i still want to answer. my favorite part of the fair is the atmosphere. it makes me feel like a kid again. the smells and sounds bring back so many good memories. i spend a lot of time at the fairs since i raised livestock for the ffa. i wish i could go back to that time and relive it all again
Jackie, your comment made me smile. My daughter was in FFA and I will never forget her and her hog. Such a fun experience watching her show. Thanks for reminding me.
I’m looking forward to our county fair with new eyes and renewed appreciation thanks to all these wonderful comments.
This has to be over but I don’t see a winner so I’ll answer anyways. 🙂 I love the small town atmosphere of even the largest state fairs..It’s like you step back in time to homemade pies on the windowsill cooling off, jams setting out on the counters and kids running barefoot in the summer..the smell of great food..
Thank you, Kirsten, for your post. I love your comment about walking back in time. I get a sense of that, too, in our county fair. I’m positive we’d all feel that way if we were at the Marietta Fair right now!
Thanks, too, for reminding me that the winner wasn’t announced. Apparently, that step got lost in the shuffle. I’m posting the name now.
All the best,
Thanks so much to everyone for the warm embrace and thoughtful comments. You really made me feel at home. Jane has a LOT of wonderful friends and readers.
The WINNING name was drawn a week ago and emailed to me while I was in San Antonio at RWA. Jane’s assistant has had a family emergency and I didn’t think to post this sooner. I’ve mailed the prize to: Fern Martin.
I’m sorry I didn’t think to post this sooner, but I do appreciate every comment. You all rock!!!
I hope to be invited back later this month when the first spin-off from Cowgirl Comes Home is released. The title is NOBODY’S COWBOY. If you’ve read Cowgirl, you’re going wonder why on earth anyone would want to write Austen’s story. As a number of readers have commented: He’s a PITA. 😉 But what’s life without a challenge? LOL.
Happy reading, all!
