The Jon and Eileen Show

Folks always seem to want to know what we are up to since leaving Los Angeles. Here is a quick update on what's happening here in Raleigh, NC on what I call "The Jon and Eileen Show."

JON BATSON: THE WRITER

Jon is busy writing his next story/novel? We'll see where it goes.

Nina Knows the Night is at our editor Alice Osborn. NKTK follows the adventures of Nina Richardson a mild-mannered law school dropout who becomes a kick-butt heroine after innocently acquiring a metal case filled with military-like weapons. Determined to knock out the growing crime in her formerly posh-turned-run-down urban neighborhood she discovers her superpowers to be her own inner-strength and purpose.






The Trasaron Chronicles is now available and will be on Amazon and others sites soon. This character driven sci-fi novel explores survival, interpersonal relationships and quality of life when many of Earth's population are displaced elsewhere. Always riveting and often humorous, Trasaron captivates the reader in an ever-evolving tale set on an inhospitable world. $24.95 + $5.00 S&H in the USA BUY NOW
