The Paperback is Ready

     It's finally happened -- the paperback edition of The Tangled Roots of Bent Pine Lodge is available.  I was once told that writing a book was the easy part.  Editing and getting it published is the agonizing part. And it is.  You need to have nerves of steel, and the waiting is almost unbearable.
     But it is finally over, for Book One at least.  I've had Book Two finished for quite a while.  It's called 'The Dunes & Don'ts Antiques Emporium.'  I held back Bent Pine Lodge because I was afraid to move forward with it, so now I have back-to-back books coming out.  That may be good for the reader when it happens, but right now, it means more work with the editing and publishing process. I'm sure I'll get through all of this, and then I can concentrate on Book Three (The Kindred Spirit Bed & Breakfast) which I already have a very small start on.
     So, if you'll hang in there with me, it should be a fun ride.  Thanks, 
Jane O

Good News and Bad News

Good and bad news.  I am frantically working out the kinks with the paperback edition.   My editor is hard at work as we speak (or as I write.)  I am hoping it won't be too much longer before it's available.  That's the bad news.  
Now for the good news -- in the meantime, I have decided to offer a price drop on the Kindle edition, in case you have procrastinated in downloading your copy. You can get it right now for only $4.99.  The price will go back up when the paperback edition is online at  Just type in either Jane O'Brien or The Tangled Roots of Bent Pine Lodge.  Tell your friends, and then please leave a review when you have finished reading.  Comments are needed to encourage others to read it if you liked it, and it also helps me to know your tastes so I can be aware of that when I write the next one. 

More good news.  Book Number Two of The White Pine trilogy is finished and awaiting the editing process, (which takes forever), and in the meantime I have a slight start on Book Number Three.  If you hang in there with me, I promise you're going to love reading this series.   Jane O
