Rebekah Dodson Newsletter

Hello everyone!

My name is Rebekah Dodson, and I am a coffeeholic and a romance writer. I live in beautiful Southern Oregon, surrounded by forests, lakes, and even a desert – yes, we have an interesting typography! Here’s a glimpse into my backyard, one of the seven wonders of the world, Crater Lake:

I really do live in the Wild West, and this area is steeped in so much of Oregon’s history! But this isn’t my first foray into historical places I’ve lived: my father was in the United States Air Force, so I’ve lived abroad in a few countries, include the United Kingdom. From my formative years spent climbing castle walls and touring the great sites of England and Scotland, I developed a great love of history. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a historian and a hopeless romantic, and I always wanted people to fall in love. I played with stories about Victorian America, Civil War era United States, and even 12th century France. Just about everything I write has a hopeless historian or time traveling hero searching for love. This translated to a career in education, where I can share my passions with others.

 Ever since I started my writing career about 5 years ago, I set out with a mission to write strong women who take what lemons life gives them and turn it into lemonade, so to speak. My characters are all damaged to fault, with struggles and strife that we all face, but they also overcome to odds and emerge like a butterfly from a chrysalis. They are resilient, amazing, funny, and dynamic. If I had one theme to share with you, it would be kick-ass heroes who won’t let anyone get in the way of carving their own destiny, just like my ancestors did blazing their trail across the American west. And they will do it, too, with a cup of coffee in one hand and determination in their hearts.

 That’s why I’m so proud to release Abby’s Promise to the world on july 24th. Abby is a history professor with a special love for America, so I guess she’s a little bit like me. She’s passionate about history including her own, and the one that got away, or rather left to join the military: Joey Harrison. She can’t let go of how she felt about Joey in high school, and when he comes back into her life, she can’t resist him. They have some history of their own, and this story is all about Abby’s journey not only to fulfil her promises to Joey, but also make some promises of her own about the future.

By the way, this story happened a bit by accident – special love to Sly Fox Cover Designs who posted this cover months ago and inspired this book. Thank you, Lauren, for feeding my writing addiction and breathing life into these characters.

 So what’s coming up in the future? I’m writing some tales of the apocalypse, where characters fall in love despite all their odds, even though the world is ending. Isn’t that was love is, after all? Our world is forever changed when we meet someone we know our soul searched for all long. It doesn’t matter if it happens on a road trip, after the world is destroyed, or in another time and place entirely.

 My corner of the world is altogether strange: I’m a hopeless romantic with a penchant for education, video games, and history, surrounded by a wild world waiting to be explored. You’ll see this come out in my writing, from characters who run from their past to ones who turn and embrace it.

 Like Abby and Joey, don’t let life pass you by, or anyone tell you what your destiny is. Embrace it yourself and change the world around you, one step at a time.

Rebekah Dodson’s Books
He walked out of my life eight years ago, and for the first couple of years, I wrote him faithfully.

Then life happened, and we lost track of each other. Now he’s back; appearing one day on campus and sweeping me off my feet. He looks the same—rough stubble on his square jaw, broody brown eyes, thick brows that always lifted when I made him laugh. My Jo-Jo has come home after eight years in Afghanistan.

She looks the same as I remember her in high school, but now she’s all woman—sophisticated, educated, and just as curvy as ever. And now she’s a professor, and I’m falling for her all over again like I did at senior prom. War screwed me up, but every day Abby was my saving grace.

She promised one day she’d never let me go, made me promise I’d come back to her. I’ve come back to claim that promise. There’s just one problem: Abby’s moved on. How will I convince the love of my life that a day never went by without her on my mind?
