Raven Tales Book One

An Urban Fantasy Mystery Comedy Novel

 

Bram Farrell, private investigator, has starred in twenty bestselling novels by writer—and witch—Calista Amberson. Her fans love the tall, dark, and handsome PI who uses magical powers to vanquish supernatural bad guys. So, when Calista uses her magic to pull Bram from his fictional world into real-world, modern-day Detroit, she rocks both worlds. Now Bram must track down and destroy otherworld evil

before it destroys him.

Nick Claus, North Pole Security Stories

It's spring at the North Pole and in Nick Claus's security office thoughts are turning to...trouble.

A problem that the Claus family was supposed to take care of and then lost track of centuries ago.

It's up to Nick to sort out in "The Prime Crone's Legacy".

"Reindeer Justice" is the 3rd Nick Claus tale and will appear in the 3rd volume of THE CASE FILES, due out in May 2020

BUT WHAT ABOUT

THE RAVEN TALE PREQUELS?!!!

The Raven Tale Prequels are serialized (at first) novellas detailing cases Bram solved between the 20 volumes the totally fictional Calista Amberson wrote. These begin "life" serialized in the blog, but they don't stay there. Once a serialized tale is complete, it joins earlier ones at Amazon. Swing by the blog (link in Menu) to see what tale might be in progress right NOW!

It's not only prequels to look for, for now that RAVEN'S MOON is available, there will be shorter, novella length stories that fall between the novels to show Bram's not just sitting around catching up on his movie watching. I'm calling those "Between the Books" tales to differentiate them from the Prequels. Right now, we just have prequels though.  The first "Between" story is "The Raven: Demon Sale" and will available in October 2020...to get everyone fired up for the second novel's release, naturally.

Anyway, this means while Bram's still in Detroit in the prequels, it's the Detroit he "used" to live in and his finances aren't in...well, he's scrounging for cases, which is the way Calie wrote him.

Here's what's currently available: 

RAVEN FOR A SONG  A teenage siren fears she's the next victim targeted by a serial killer known as The Leech. Can -- or even should -- PI Bram Farrell, aka The Raven, save her before her powers blossom and she becomes a killer herself?

 

MOCK RAVEN (previously titled THE RAVEN AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S PET) provides yet another Otherworlder or so that needs to be taken down via Raven style justice...which tends to mean not only magic, but sarcasm will be in play.  It's a given. But there's also a killer masquerading as Bram and there's only room for one Raven in Detroit.

RAVEN'S REST  This is the prequel that falls just before RAVEN'S MOON. Bram's stuck looking for a missing Holmes -- yes, Sherlock -- and sorting out why the world's only consulting detective had stray fairy wings and elf shot in his laboratory. The trail leads to a place our hero would rather not visit -- a woods that is very, very hungry.

And the new serialization has begun with

THE RAVEN AND THE ANCIENT  It isn't bad enough that paranormal, supernatural, and legendary beings gone wrong fall under Bram's long list of things to track, now one of the guys from ancient Assyria has arrived in Detroit. What's a guy to do when one of the old gods comes knocking?

Find it under "JB Dane Blog" in the "More" section of the menu above. New episodes before the end of the year (2019, that is) -- Bram and I hope!

In Progress on Blog

J.B. DANE is a pseudonym of a multi-published, multi-genre novelist who goes by many names. Not because she is in Witness Protection. Really not in Witness Protection. Really. She may start hiding from citizens of Detroit since her Raven Tales urban fantasy comedic mysteries have populated their fair city with neighbors who might be supernatural, paranormal or legendary beasts…or not so beasts…but probably ARE beasts. They could be

hungry, too.

Of course, there are those visits to the North Pole to see how Nick Claus is doing as head of Santa Corp's security division.

 

She might (or might not) be found at the website, but leave a message to be picked up by a disguised courier

and delivered

to a secret location.
