Black Lily is the fourth book in The 9 Lives of the Outlaw Known as Crazy Cat series. It’s a fast-paced tale of daring to trust new allies, fighting boredom with bullets, and making plans for the future while hiding from the law.
Lee has teamed up with an old friend and is back at outlawing again. The duo gains a new nemesis in a ruthless bounty hunter, and new accomplices in an accidental killer and a stagecoach driver with a secret.
The outlaw known as Crazy Cat gets to prove what she’s made of in encounters with
tyro outlaws, a wounded gang member, and an aging horse, and worst of all: stagecoach passengers.

Said about Embers a Dawn, the first book:
“If you like your Westerns dark and morally ambiguous, J.C. Loen’s EMBERS AT DAWN is plenty of both.” –Charles Baker for IndieReader
Said about An Obelus Wheeze, the second book:
“To say I liked the lead character would be an understatement. The balance between her tough will to survive and her loyalty and gentleness to those closest to her is a joy to read and I found myself smiling, even laughing out loud, on many an occasion.” – Kenneth Wilson, Goodreads
Said about The 7th Bullet, the third book:
“I really enjoyed the strong female outlaw. The story kept me reading and wondering if I was right in what I expected to happen.” Lynn, Goodreads
The E-book version of All the Things a Woman Oughtn’t Do – The Ballad of Zerelda Glanton is currently free. Yup, that’s right, no charge. Go pick up your free copy HERE, before I change my mind.
The 7th Bullet is the third book in the The 9 Lives of the Outlaw Known as Crazy Cat series—a Gothic western that draws upon elements from both horror and crime. It’s a foreboding tale of friendship and grief, madness, and haunts, and seeing a man about a horse.
Lee is offered a chance at freedom—all she has to do is assist a Pinkerton detective during an investigation and sign a contract where she swears to become a law-abiding citizen. She agrees to help the detective, but will she sign the contract and give up her outlawing ways?
The investigation brings her to the arid Bonneville flats and a lodge run by a family of spiritualists. They may or may not be able to talk to the dead, but they certainly have a connection to them.

My good friend and often partner in crime Ingvild Eiring does more than model, make-up and costume, she is a terrific sculptor as well. Her speciality is mice in victorian clothing. I asked her to make me a Crazy Cat inspired mouse… and then this happened. Mad Mouse came to life. I couldn’t be happier with the result, every little detail is perfect, from Lee’s (Crazy Cat) whisker scars to a pair of tiny spurs. Everything is handmade, even the clothes are sewn by Ingvild.
Ingvild takes commissions, if you want a custom mouse too, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org

I know. I know… Everything is about Zerelda these days. Hope y’all ain’t tired of her yet. If you want to know the connection between a Barbie doll in a fighter pilot outfit and the gunslinging babe in the shape of Ingvild Eiring, head on over to Floz Visions, where Zerelda’s been featured along with a bunch of pictures you probably haven’t seen before.
She’s finally here! I know a lot of you have been pining for her a very long time… and we (Ingvild and I) have been teasing you since our first Zerelda shoot in 2013 – never showing you more than a glimpse of what we’ve been up to. Well, the wait is over. The 108 page Polaroid photobook is available in three different versions:
Get the glorious big hardcover book (12x12in/30x30cm) directly from Blurb for $124.99 here
The no less spectacular, but a lot cheaper, small softcover book (7x7in/18x18cm) from Amazon for $54.99 here
The E-book (epub) for only $9.99 here
Preview of the book can be viewed at Blurb. And a selection of images from the book can be seen at my website julieloen.com.
Embers at Dawn (e-book) is perma-free and available everywhere! …or at least here: Smashwords, Barnes & Noble/Nook, iBooks, Google Books and Ebok.no
Amazon is a bit tardy about taking the hint – they’re still selling it for $0.99, but you can get the mobi file (for Kindle) at Smashwords for free too.
I have received my first Smashwords review. It is short and sweet: “Loved this book! The imagery is amazing and the mix between total crass and intelligence is just awesome! Great characters.” – Debby Rubino, Smashwords
