A Tour of Cornwall would be extremely lovely I think. I was cruising the web wondering what I should blog about and came across the Visit Cornwall promotional website. We have all read about the Cornwall in Rose Trevelyan’s universe and I was wondering if the actual place is anything like what our favorite author writes about. I mean I live in Florida so we are almost always hot, on the coasts we have nice coastal breezes but we have no mountains, cliffs or other interesting high places that might be a little difficult to traverse. The Atlantic Ocean down here is generally fairly warm until about October and cools off quite a bit here in the Northern part of the State. The Gulf of Mexico is calmer most of the time than the Atlantic and offers plenty of opportunities for swimming, fishing and what not most of the year. From the pictures I have seen of the island, it looks to be always pretty cool if not downright cold most of the year. I could be wrong about that.
Then there are all the old houses and buildings. I mean the oldest city we have is St. Augustine Florida and those have been turned into tourist attractions or restaurants. No one really lives in the oldest places. There is something timeless about some of the areas within Cornwall that you just don’t get here.
We travel all over the stay mostly in our cars, or RVs. We really don’t have a good railway system here nor are there that many bus routes to take you around. From looking at the tourism website the island seems to have a very nice public transportation system in place. If you don’t have a car you can always catch a bus or hop on the train to take you where you want to go. Oh, and the 25 ferries you have traveling around the island sounds really fun. We still have a car ferry in Jacksonville, Florida that goes across the St. Johns River taking people from the Atlantic Beach/Mayport area over to the North part of Jacksonville every 30 minutes. We use to ride over on the ferry once or twice a year just for the heck of it.
If you live in Cornwall or have visited recently and would like to share your experiences and pictures(hint, hint) we would be happy to post them here for everyone to enjoy. Who knows they may inspire someone to write a Fan Fiction Story of our intrepid photographer. 🙂
Till next time.

Good evening fellow fans of a great writer, Janie Bolitho. There have been some changes to Amazon’s bookstore function in that they are no longer supporting it. We have deleted the page and updated the entire website with new links for each of the books. We do this both to earn a little money to help keep this website going as well as provide a place for fans to buy the books. We hope you will take a few minutes and look over the website to see some of the changes. Just as an FYI: each of the book’s individual page has the title of the book in a different color. That is a link directly to the corresponding Amazon web page where you can get a copy of that book. Continue reading “New Changes to Website”
We have had a couple letters from some of our fellow Janie Bolitho Fans using our CONTACT US form that I thought I would share with the class today. We love to receive emails from some fellow fans of our favorite author and hope to encourage more of you to post comments to the posts or even drop us a line. Pictures and stories about the author is always appreciated as are any book reviews/synopsis you would like to send our way. Continue reading “New Fan Mail May 2017”
Fan questions for the group we received this past month. We thought it would be better to post in the blog so that all the fans of Janie Bolitho could help answer the questions. Below are three emails from two different fans that could use some help answering:
Subject: Ian Roper Series
January 27, 2017 at 9:35 pm
Hi. I am looking to buy the novels from the Ian Roper series either new or second hand. I have picked up 4 of them for a reasonable price second hand on ebay. I was just wondering if you or your members have any of them for sale. I was also wondering if this series should be read in the order they were written, or are they each just separate stories solved by detective Ian Roper? Thank you. Continue reading “Fan Questions For the Group”
Christmas in Cornwall England could be a great fantasy vacation for all of us fellow Janie Bolitho Fans. From the pictures I have seen on the web it looks like a great place to spend a little time by the sea. As with our favorite author’s stories we, as fans, would like to walk the streets and experience the place where a lot of her stories were featured. She still has lots of fans from all over the world and in the coming year we would love to hear more from you! Anyone living or visiting Cornwall this holiday season we hope you will share your pictures of the area too. Continue reading “Christmas in Cornwall”
Good morning my fellow Janie Bolitho fans! We have made some changes to the website with a fresh new look and layout. It’s supposed to be more modern looking and we hope you like it. We are still looking for fan-fiction with either Ian Roper or Rose Trevelyan and their cohorts featured in the story someway. It doesn’t have to be any great length so long as it has a beginning, middle and end we would love to share it with our fellow readers. If you have some fan-art you would like to share we would welcome that as well. For either one you can send it directly to our email at: jolene dot macfadden at janiebolith dot info.
We look forward to your submissions, ideas for future posts or even news about our favorite books getting published in eBook format. Till next time KEEP READING
We can now buy the whole Rose Trevelyan Series in eBook format available on Amazon Kindle. Can’t wait for my local library to get their copies. Sadly, the Ian Roper series is not available yet nor any of her stand alone novels. We will just have to keep petitioning Amazon to have the other books moved over to eBook so more people can enjoy them.
I really love a good old fashioned paperback or hardback book to read but now that we are living full-time in our RV and traveling we just do not have the room for books. Thus, I try to find my favorite books on Amazon or available on OVERDRIVE through my local library. Continue reading “Buy Rose Trevelyan Series in Ebook Format”
