New Audio Books

 And it's official! Two more of Jane O'Brien's books is now available in Audio. Recently Ruby and Sal was published in audio, and now you can find the next book in the series, Maisy and Max, also in Audio. This is an exciting time for me as I go through each of my books, read, and listen to make sure you get the best quality. I'm re-acquainting myself of some of my old friends. I love it.

You can find them here through Amazon:

Also look for them on Audible, and iTunes.

Next stop, Ivy and Fox, Bk #3, coming soon.

All Together Again

The Book of Jade is now available in paperback.  It was quite a trial as there was a small glitch on the cover, but all is right with the world now, as far as I'm concerned.  I always breathe a little easier when my ducks are in a row. Next step is Audible, but that takes more time.  I"ll be sure to let you know when it happens.  For now, you can enjoy reading more of Skye's adventures as she travels to the Far East!

New Release! Jade is Here


I promised another bit of news today. But I lied. It's not a bit-- it's huge! In fact if I could, I would be doing cartwheels

The Book of Jade is now available for purchase for Kindle!!
I was holding off because I wanted the paperback to be ready at the same time, but there has been a delay because of a glitch with the cover. It should be ready soon. I'll keep you updated.
So hurry up and grab your copy of Book 3 in The Branches of Time. I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

I hope you are all staying warm and safe. It's been a crazy last few days here in Michigan. Cold, windy, and plenty of snow. It just keeps coming, but we may be seeing an end to it now. Because of my focus on the weather, I missed talking about something important -- to me, anyway. I never discuss politics here, but as you may be aware of already, my next book, The Book of Jade, takes place in Taiwan.
I lived in this country for two years and because of that I have always held a fondness for the people and their struggles for democracy. On Saturday, over 14 million people voted in a fair and honest election, when the previous Vice President, Lai Ching-te, was voted into the office of President. For the third consecutive election in a row, Taiwan has chosen freedom and independence. I congratulate them on their victory!
Watch for Branches of Time, Book Three, The Book of Jade, Coming soon, I promise!

Winter Time

  What else can I say but winter is finally here.  After seeing nothing but green grass all season, we're now expecting up to ten inches of snow between today and tomorrow.  This is Michigan -- one extreme to another.  But there's one thing I know for sure, it will be beautiful beyond imagination.

And at least until it melts, Mr. Snowman will be enjoying my latest book.  How about you?

Take your pick from any one of my twenty-nine books, sit by a nice warm fire, and enjoy.
You can find them all here:  Jane O'Brien

It's a New Year


It's almost a new year.  How did that happen?  Weren't we just planning Thanksgiving?  

I hear everyone say it.  Time seems to be flying by more quickly than ever before.  They used to say the older you got the faster time seemed to pass, but now everyone, no matter, what age notices it.  Maybe it's because we're busier, or it could be because we're on our electronic devices all the time.  I've noticed how an hour can seem like a few minutes when I'm on the computer.  For me, that usually means I'm living in another world as I type a new story for you.

I don't normally like New Year's resolutions, because they are so difficult to complete.  Last year I decided to learn Spanish, and for the first time in my life I stayed with it.  I've been studying with Babbel since last January.  So if I can do it for one year, I can do it for another.  My resolution is private, but I'll let you know next year if I was able to accomplish it.

Do you have a New Year's resolution ready to go?  Can you share?  I'd love to hear about it, along with your past successes or failures.  

This coming year is going to be great.  I can feel it in my bones.  For one thing, a new book is just around the corner.  Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

Christmas is here! Can you believe it?

Tonight is our Christmas celebration with the family at my house. Most of you will be doing the same things I will be, unless you are going to someone else's house today or tomorrow. This morning begins with a light cleaning up and then getting out the proper bowls and dishes , followed by food prep for tonight. I'm hoping to have time to put my feet up for a few minutes before they arrive -- but I doubt it will happen, although I've been very organized this year so there has not been a lot of stress.
There won't be much writing for the next few days, though, and that's been pulling on me, because I'm almost done with my book. But in a day or two, I'll devote all of my time to finishing it, so it can go to the beta readers.
But today and tomorrow is Jesus's day and He deserves all of my attention, along with my family.
I want to take this time to thank you all for sticking with me through my Facebook upset this year. I am so thankful for my loyal followers. May you all have peace and joy and love throughout the coming year. Merry Christmas!

Some of you know that I was seriously hacked on Facebook in July.  I feel awful that I had to discontinue using that page, but I had no choice.  My original page is now controlled by someone else who is using my name and picture and I can't reclaim it or fix it.  They took over my password and created a new one of their own with a two-step verification.  I lost over 1100 followers that day, and worst of all is I know there are some people wondering where I went. They may have stopped reading Jane O'Brien books, because they do not know there have been more published since then.

 Since that time I have had to start over again with a new page, so yes, I'm still here, but my new Facebook page is now listed as Jane O'Brien Author. If you are one of those people who have not moved to my new page, I miss you. Plus you're missing out on the fun. I invite you to follow me again, as there will be a Christmas giveaway any day now.  Plus you can see what new exciting books I have written since summer.  

Branches of Time, Book 2, Threatening Skye was released in September,, and Book 3, The Book of Jade will be released soon after Christmas. Please continue along with me, as I take Skye all over the world.  Nothing can stop this time-traveling adventurer, but who is chasing her? Who will go along with her?  What about the rest of her family? Will the Red Guard A-watcher, Remington Hart ever catch up to her?  As romantic tension runs high; danger lurks right below the surface.

You can find this new series here:


Threatening Skye

  I'm looking forward to seeing you at Jane O'Brien Author on Facebook.  Merry Christmas!
