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.

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.

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 are finally up and running for the holidays. At least we hope so. For all the subscribers of the Janie Bolitho Fan Info Blog we have had to make a few changes to the website and our web hosting service. Hopefully, this new service will be more effective than the last two we have tried over the last 6 months. To help with those changes we had to delete our subscribers file and for that we apologize. If you have tried to sign-in before you may have found that you were no longer subscriber to the blog. You can always re-register again.

News in Cornwall England has been added to the website in a widget on the sides. We don’t have any other news about the author and we haven’t received any fan fiction from any of our fellow fans in either the Ian Roper or even the Rose Trevelyan series. Either one or both would be greatly appreciated. Since we cannot expect any new stories by our favorite author it is up to us fans to keep her stories alive and share them on this website. And even one of the other stories she has written would be okay too.
Sadly, we cannot find any of her books in our local libraries and the few books we have been able to collect we had to put in storage when we hit the road. There are no eBooks available of the books either except for one place where they scan in the whole book and make it available as a PDF eBook and even read it online. That is the Open Library Organization. “At its heart, Open Library is a catalog. The project began in November 2007 and has been inhaling catalog records from some of the biggest libraries in the world ever since. We have well over 20 million edition records online, provide access to 1.7 million scanned versions of books, and link to external sources like WorldCat and Amazon when we can. The secondary goal is to get you as close to the actual document you’re looking for as we can, whether that is a scanned version courtesy of the Internet Archive, or a link to Powell’s where you can purchase your own copy.” Only two of Ms. Bolitho’s books are available on Open Library that you can read in eBook format and you can read them online, download in Acrobat Reader PDF or even ePub. The PDF file will probably be a larger file as they take the books and scan them in page-by-page into one file.
Till next time. Maybe we will find some of her books in a used book store and be able to add more content to the book pages themselves. But we really would like to have fan fiction stories from writers, non-published writers or just series fans.
We have started a new round of emails and requests for more information on the life and times of our favorite author, Janie Bolitho. We are hoping to create a more comprehensive biography with pictures and video of this wonderful author. The local librarian in Cornwall was very kind to email one of the synopsis of one of the Ian Roper series books but are unable to type up anymore. Since none of those books are available to us here in our local library I was a little disappointed but do really understand. They did offer to copy her obituary from microfiche in the Falmouth Packet which I appreciate but cannot do right at the moment. These are not available online and the local paper hasn’t responded to my request for more information.
