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 a 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 webpage where you can get a copy of that book.
We are still looking for fans that own the DCI Ian Roper series books who will take a little time to create a better synopsis and a list of characters from each of the books to add to the page. We are also looking to post Fan Fiction and Fan Art involving any of the books and characters to feature on the website. And, finally, if you have a story about the author and/or pictures you would be willing to share we would be happy to feature those on a post as well. This author deserves to be remembered and to have a more complete website of her work.
If anyone is in touch with Ms. Bolitho’s children could you ask them if or when all the rest of the books written by our favorite author will be released in eBook format. All the Cornwall series are in eBooks and it would be really great if the rest of her books could be made available to all of her fans all around the world.
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

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.

Hi. My mother has just finished reading the Rose Trevelyan series which she thoroughly enjoyed. She is now wanting to read the Ian Roper series. I am finding it extremely difficult to find the Ian Roper series new, even though the Rose Trevelyan series can be found just about anywhere. Is there a reason for this as far as you know? Apart from Amazon, do you know of anywhere I might find the Ian Roper series new? I am in Melbourne, Australia. Thanks.
Thank you Julie for your two emails. We have posted your questions here so that all of our fellow fans may be able to answer you more accurately than I. Good luck on your search. I know that the Ian Roper series is no longer available anywhere in our local libraries anymore and are very hard to obtain on Amazon. Too bad her family couldn’t petition her former publishers to re-publish all of her stories in eBook format that all of us around the world could get copies.

Dear Janie Bolitho Fansite, Janie Bolitho is my favourite author and I own all seven of her Rose Trevelyan books. I’ve just started reading the Loveday Ross Cornish Mysteries by Rena George and discover they are a pastiche of the Janie Bolitho series. Do you know if Rena George has openly expressed where her inspiration came from or if it is mere coincidence? Thank you very much. Best wishes, Wendy
Thanks so much Wendy for your email. I haven’t read any of Rena George’s stories but you might want to contact her directly with your question. Her website has a Contact information page: http://renageorge.com/index.php/contact/
If you can help answer the questions above use our CONTACT US form and we will post the answers in our next blog post. If you are a subscriber to this blog you should be able to post your answers in the comments section below. Yes, we would also love to receive some fan fiction stories about any of the characters in the Janie Bolitho story lines. So get writing people and start sharing!
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”
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. Continue reading “Up and Running for the Holidays”
