Finished!

     This morning I wrote the final sentence for Owl Creek. I'm very pleased with the ending. What a relief. Now once again, I face the difficult task of editing and then proofreading many times over. I hope it doesn't take too long because, I'm anxious to get it out to you. I'm looking for a September publication date, if all goes well.  Hang in there, it's coming.

Computers - AAAACH!!

I panicked over the weekend when my laptop refused to start up. That's where I write my books, but I always back up on a flash drive so I wasn't too worried, except for the future dent in my pocketbook. Took it in to a computer tech, and it turned out that it was stuck in sleep mode for some odd reason. He took the battery out, popped it back in. and a few seconds later, I was good to go. Who knew? At least now I know how to take the battery out if it ever happens again. Whew! Jane O'Brien writes again!

Children's Books

     Jane O'Brien is venturing into another area. As well as Michigan romances, I have been writing children's books. Years ago, I think it was 2001, I wrote two children's Bible stories (I have yet to finish the third) and never knew what to do with them. They need pictures and I am no artist, believe me. 

     Recently, I wrote a little read-to-me book or early reader, but didn't know what to do about the illustrations. I have made an agreement with my niece, a teen who is a fantastic artist, to do the drawings. It's in the early stages and we have a lot of work to do, but I'm excited that my story might see the light of day. I'll keep you posted when, and if, it's published.
