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)

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!

“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

Sangria Hi Jana! Thanks for your friendship! :)

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.

NocturnalRavings(Jodie) Is there going to be a US edition for the third Demon Trappers book? Hopefully with a matching cover,because my OCD likes matching covers. :D

Jana Oliver Kayleigh,

Thank you for reading my books!

I have read the Morganville Vampire series and I love them! They rock.

Jana


message 14: by Jana

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
