One Last Time is the title of a novel of mine that isn’t available any longer.
The story took place in a world where the recently deceased are allowed to come back, one last time, to visit one person for a few minutes before heading off into the hereafter. The visits range from tearful to fearful. The main character, a grief counselor and skeptic, finds her world turned upside down.
Anyway, one of the characters in the book begins a website, OneLastTime.org, to chronicle the visitations. I had a grand plan to build a mock website filled with stories of visitations, run by this fictitious character, Gryffen Grimaldi. I almost did it, too, stopped only by a lack of time, money, skill, imagination and drive.
Rather than letting people click through to a “page under construction” message, I decided to make this the landing page for my author website.
Then I decided to reboot One Last Time (the novel) with a new title and cover, and so was born Dances with the Dead. And now this website makes even less sense!
I’ve pretty well abandoned the “old school” website and blogs for Facebook and Twitter. The Twitter handle is @J_Strnad. Here’s the Facebook page: Jan on Facebook
But, onelastime.org endures, so, welcome! Cruise around, check out the blogs, see if anything strikes your fancy.

I don’t want to say more about it, but I hired a cover model, Naiia Lajoie, and my friend and neighbor Blake Pickett (Blake Pickett Photography on Facebook) (NSFW) took a ton of shots for me. Here’s one, raw, unprocessed shot, picked at random:
