Jana Oliver Hi Philine!
I hope to visit Europe one of these days. I've never been. And Germany is definitely on my list of "must visit countries"!

It's a wonderful task bringing those characters to life, watch them grow across the pages. Even better when those characters are in a series because I can "hang" with them even longer.

In short -- either I write my stories or the "voices in my head" are going to drive me batty. (less)

??????????????????And BOOM we have a first draft of the New Adult murder mystery set in New Orleans. The Spouse (aka HIM) has marked up the first 2/3’s of the manuscript so while he’s reading the back portion, I’ll start Draft #2. I’m a couple weeks *behind* where I wanted to be on my writing schedule, but it’s all good.


I’m really enjoying the story (blackmail, contract killings, a serial killer) all set in NOLA...

“The End is Nigh!" the man shouted.
"Is there still time for hot chocolate?" Riley asked.
The-End-is-Nigh guy blinked. "Ah, maybe, I don’t know.”
Jana Oliver, Forbidden

“Here I am with a seriously hunky guy and I'm covered in demon pee. Why does the universe hate me?”
Jana Oliver, Forsaken

“What did ya learn from this dumbass stunt?”
Here's where she was supposed to apologize, promise to be a good little girl and never do anything like this again.
Screw that.
Riley locked eyes with him. “I learned that the Holy Water better be fresh, that I need practice throwing the spheres, and that someone has to watch my back so asshats don't steal my demons.”
Jana Oliver, Forsaken

Jana Oliver Mistress Moon -

Wow, I really need to check my emails out here more often. (sighs).

The third book is out (FORGIVEN), though the cover now matches the UK books instead of the US ones. I understand the OCD thing, really I do. ;-)

Jana

My heavens! I should check my comments more often. Sorry! RETRO DEMONOLOGY is Riley's first solo trapping experience so if you want to get a taste her life, that'd be a good place to start.
