Fort Reiley Giveaway (Free ebook!)

To celebrate getting back into the game (and to generate some buzz), I’m giving away Kindle copies of Fort Reiley for TODAY ONLY. You can get your copy by downloading it from amazon at

Hey! It’s FREE! What do you have to lose?

Please share this with friends and family to get the word out.


(FREE) Review Copies of Fort Reiley Available

Fort Reiley needs some review love at Amazon, and other outlets. In order to achieve that, I need reviewers.


I’m offering free digital copies of Fort Reiley as Review Copies. The way I want to handle review copies this year is as follows:

Sign up for my newsletter, but put yourself in a SPECIAL reviewer list specifically for Fort Reiley Reviewers. The email address you use here is where I will know where to send the review copy.



Make sure that you are enabled to receive a newsletter AND you have checked the second box that puts you in this special group. If you’ve already left a review somewhere, first… THANK YOU. Secondly, go ahead and put yourself in this list so that I can keep track of you and remember you. I might just have some special goodies in store for when I stumble on a review out in the wild. If your name is in here, I know where to send the goodies.

If you review under a different name than the name or address that you signed up with, send me an email with the name you used and what site you used it on so that I can keep track of you.

Once I see you in the list, I will send you the book for FREE! The agreement is, if you download the book and email, you will leave an honest review on Amazon, Smashwords, Goodreads, etc. (whatever outlets you have access to) within 4 weeks. Does that sound fair?

Do you know someone who loves to read? Forward them a link to this article so they can have a chance, too! The more the merrier.

If you have questions, feel free to write me at :

Fort Reiley ARCs Released

2014-09-22 16_29_09-https___99designsI was finally able to release the Advanced Reader Copies (ARC) to a handful of people yesterday. For those of you that received an ARC, please note that this is NOT the final version. It’s an advanced version, prior to last-minute polish and shine, so there are expected to be a few things. I’ve already noticed a couple missing hyphens in hyphenated words and such.

For those of you that did not receive an ARC, but wanted to, keep watching this page. Here is where you will find posts on my books before they are released, and you may be able to sign up for one next time around. I can only send out a few copies at a time.

I am very excited to reveal Harrison Kass to you. He’s a totally different character than Brodie, but in a good way. Harry’s story has several paranormal twists of its own, with some darker elements and themes with the idea of redemption toward the end. It has taken about twelve years for this story to make it onto paper, so this feels very much like a milestone moment for me.

If you have questions, feel free to drop me a line, or ask me on Goodreads in the “Ask the Author” section.

I hope you’ve all had a very happy Thanksgiving and are looking forward to an even better Christmas season.

Working on my latest release

2014-09-22 16_29_09-https___99designs
Click me to see the full-sized cover. Release date 12-15-2014!

I will be putting the final touches and getting my latest release ready this month. There’s still quite a bit to do, but things are winding down. I’m really looking forward to showing you all my latest work. I really hope you enjoy it.


Tabloid Reporter Harrison Kass goes to a small Oklahoma town to dig up dirt on an old legend. What he uncovers is Adam Moor’s secret science experiment of death. Everyone who discovers this secret seems to meet an untimely demise, and Adam has the same plans for Harry. The town vet, Tara Roberts, isn’t exactly what she seems. Harry becomes infected and Tara comes to his rescue and helps him escape. Together they go on the run with the hope of putting an end to Adam’s madness before he finishes what he started and Harry’s turning is complete.

Update on my WIP

Today I sent my latest Work in Progress (WIP) to the editor. I am very excited because this allows me to finally set some solid dates on the calendar.

Fort Reiley (that’s the title of the novel) stands at just over 100,000 words, which is almost double that of Death Has a Name. I’m working on the cover art, back-cover blurbs, and all of the other stuff that has to get done to meet a deadline of a December 15th deadline.

You heard that right… after months and months and months of waiting for me to release a new novel, I finally have a release date.

December 15, 2014

I am now taking of my writer’s hat and putting on my editor/publisher hat to get this release out the door. There is still a ton of work to be done on this project — cover art, back blurb, promotional spots, advertising, editing, proofing — but I can’t wait to show you all of the hard work that has gone into this project. I really think you are going to enjoy this story.

If you would like an Advanced reader Copy (ARC), please write me at jhanel at gmail dot com. Put “Advanced Reader Copy” in the subject line so that it doesn’t get lost in the tons of spam I get every day. In the body, explain what you like in terms of books and story lines. I will choose 5 ARC readers.

There is a cost for this, however. No, it’s not monetary. But I do ask that you leave a review on (good or bad… I want honest reviews!!) telling the world what you think of the book. That’s it. Leave an honest review.

Thank you, again, to all of my patient fans. I know it’s been a while, but today marks a very important milestone and I am excited to share it with you. Hang in there with me as I can reveal more and more of this new novel! Keep your eyes open for chances to win copies, to submit your own work, and to have a ton of fun as we ramp up to the launch date.
