If you thought the teaser on the back was good, you’re gonna love these covers! Watch the trailer for Caffeine and listen to Diane read the first chapter of her novel, I Am Ocilla.

Ryan Grabow, who graduated from Long Island University in 2004 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronic Media, currently directs for television newscasts in Fort Myers, Florida. He has a web site at egrabow.com, the "e" standing for "electronic" as in "e-mail." He's written computer programs and built databases to earn some geek-cred. After being raised on Star Trek, Stargate, and Sliders (his favorite show to this day), he discovered Anime while in college and hasn't looked back. Be sure to visit again next Monday for an in-depth interview.

In the meantime, Ryan wants to know: Do you enjoy stand-alone novels more, or those that lead to sequels and trilogies, etc.?

Ryan says: This novel was written in the 21st century.

If you're reading this in the present: Congratulations, I believe you have good taste in fiction.

If you're reading this in the future: I hope my depiction of your time was somewhere in the ballpark. Respect your elders!

If you're reading this in the past: Kindly close this book and send it back through the time-warp where you found it... lest you rend the fabric of time and space and doom us all!


Diane Graham lives in the mountains of eastern Oklahoma with her husband and five children. She is an avid reader and lover of all art forms that encapsulate imagination and goodness. She has been a waitress, a car saleswoman, a real estate wannabe, and had grandeur dreams of growing up to be a mom. Never in a million years did she expect to be a writer, but children do this awesome thing with a person's imagination. Now she can't stop writing.

Diane wants to know: What do you feel after reading the back cover for I Am Ocilla?

Next week Wednesday you'll have a chance to get to know Diane better. For now, Diane says: You often hear people say you should write what you know. I did just that without realizing until later that is what I did. I also love that while writing, I was absolutely floored at plot twists that came up and tied in with past chapters. A lot of Christian writers say God helped them and it sometimes comes off as clich√©. But I don’t care what it sounds like. It is a fact. I’m simply not smart enough to pull off some of the flips in Ocilla all on my own.
