Free e-Book of The Oculars


As some of my blog followers know, I’m also a writer. I write collaboratively with my mom and my brother, under the pen name Renna Olsen, and have for the past five years or so. We’ve just published our seventh book, a horror/paranormal thriller named, The Oculars, and this weekend, we’re giving away e-copies of it on Amazon. You can get your copy now through Sunday, February 10th.

Per our book description:

What Ethan Owenby wants is a normal life. Years earlier, a misguided and alcohol-fueled decision to take his Uncle Jonno’s place as the driver in a car crash had terrible repercussions. Unbeknownst to Ethan, an innocent young woman lost her life in that same instant.
Now, Ethan has served his time and come home to Riverside Oregon, but his newly discovered peace is shattered when he receives a mysterious package containing research and designs for a radical new optical technology. Amongst the nearly incomprehensible information is a rambling and confusing video from his reclusive yet brilliant, Uncle Wilson warning him – tell no one about the Oculars.
Little does Ethan know that there are dark forces that will stop at nothing, even murder, to get their hands on the Oculars. The Oculars allow the wearer to see the denizens and landscapes of the Dark Spectrum, the abode of spirits and ghosts, but not without a price. As old secrets are uncovered and strange enemies roam the small town of Riverside, Ethan must find a way to protect his friends, old and new, from those who will stop at nothing to possess the Oculars.

I hope you’ll take advantage of our free promotion to get a copy of the new book. And if you do, if you would be so kind as to leave a review (good or bad, all feedback is to our benefit) I would be most appreciative.

Stay warm and curl up with a good book!



Welcome to my new blog!

I’m so glad you could join me! Let me introduce myself. My name is Anne and I am a writer and blogger living in the great Pacific Northwest.  I write horror and science fiction with my mother and brother under the pen name, Renna Olsen. As some of you know, I’ve been running my family’s writing and publishing blog, Litzophreniacs3.net, for the last five years. It’s still going strong but I wanted a platform with a little more freedom to focus on my own interests and opinions. I plan on using this blog to post book and movie reviews, author interviews, writing updates, and anything else that strikes my fancy.

A little bit more about me – I joined the Army right of high school and spent six years enlisted as an Arabic linguist. The Army kindly sent me to college, where I met my future husband, was commissioned as a second lieutenant and earned a degree in Middle Eastern studies.  I followed that up with another six years as a military intelligence officer before I left the military to start a family. I have since spent time as a Department of Defense contractor, a graduate student, and a full time mother of two boys. Oh, and I write!  

Thanks for taking the time to stop in. New content coming soon, I promise. I appreciate the support. Don’t be a stranger!

Kind regards,
