SojournSmSince SOJOURN, the first book in my time travel series is currently available for 99 cents/pence/euros (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks, Google Play), here’s an interview I did back in 2007. We touch on such topics as recreational time travel and how I love complex plots.



The e-b00k covers have since changed, but the story has not. Enjoy!

“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 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

I own Demon Trappers # 0.5 and #1 - I can't wait to read them. Should I start with #0.5 first or #1?"


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.
