    • Hi Karen,
      Thanks for your interest 🙂

      I’m planning on setting up one as soon as possible & will notify you when it’s up and running.

      You can also like my FB page (if you use FB) as another way to keep update with what’s happening.

    • Hi Karen

      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I now have a newsletter sign up sheet. You can sign up in the Subscribe to Newsletter on the sidebar – or use the checkpoint below. I plan to send out quarterly newsletters with updates etc. There is currently a giveaway of Tied in Pink on GoodReads if you are interested. I discuss it here http://jeanetteohagan.com/tied-in-pink-giveaway/

      Thanks so much for your interest.

    • Hi Eileen

      Thrilled you enjoyed Akrad’s Children 🙂 I’m currently working on Stone of the Sea, the sequel to Blood Crystal (in the Under the Mountain series) – release planned next month – and plan to have the second book in Akrad’s Legacy series – Rasel’s Song – released early next year (2019).

      If haven’t already, subscribing the Jeanette O’Hagan Writes newsletter or following my FaceBook page will give you more regular updates.

      Thanks for asking. You made my day 🙂

  2. Dear Jeanette,
    I am writing to introduce myself and to ask for your suggestions of a way forward with a short novel I have just completed.
    I am a friend of Ian and Sue McQuay and attend Windsor Road Baptist Church. I am retired from teaching social work (Uni of Qld) and spiritual companioning (Christian Heritage College). I have been involved in spiritual direction, and have had two books published in that field (Reflective Love: Companioning in the Way of Jesus, and Guiding Gideon: Awakening to Life and Faith published by Wipf & Stock), and numerous articles. I also used to write short stories and narratives for my CHC students.

    I am part of a small informal writer’s group(“Holy Scribblers”) which includes Charles Ringma, Irene Alexander, Ross Mckenzie, Terry Gatflied and Jill Manton). The focus of our group has mainly been with Christian Spirituality.

    While Guiding Gideon was a constructed narrative of guide and a pilgrim, my current ‘novella’ is in the fiction genre. It has arisen out of a concern about the loss of stories, particularly Biblical stories in the formation of children. It is entitled, The Boy Who Lived the Stories. Twelve-year-old Dillon lives on a drought-stricken farm with his grandparents. His grandparent, growing frail, are intentional in providing a solid foundation for their grandson. His Gran engages Dillon through stories.

    Jeanette, I am looking for a way into Australian publishing rather than going back to Wipf & Stock. Is one way to do that through having a local editor (some of our group have used Karen Hollenbeck in the States)? Do you, yourself edit fiction? Is there a need for a book agent? Do you have other suggestions as to a way forward?

    Sorry about this long note in your comment section!

    In the joy of the gospel,

    Chris Brown
