"There is no greater joy than to share what you love with those who appreciate it."—Bernard Jan
Bernard Jan is a novelist and a poet from Croatia, and he has released three books in English.
A World Without Color is a true story of the last three days he spent with his cat, while Look for Me Under the Rainbow in a unique and gentle way sheds light on the plight of harp seal pups in Canada. It warms the heart of all readers concerned about our planet and its treasures. January River is a heartwarming cross-genre novel about five friends, one dog, and one river carrying a secret.
His first two books were written at the beginning of the war in Croatia in 1991 amidst air alerts and illusory attempts when he wanted to believe and think that life is normal, that everything is all right with the world. He has published five novels, two novellas, and one book of poems in Croatian. Four of his books, including the book of poems, were translated into English.
His passion for music and entertainment resulted in his becoming a partner of Tom's Music Place, which was established in 2009 by his friend Thomas Carley Jr., whose objective was to raise the respect of music.
His desire to help others came to the fore during his years advocating environmental protection and advocacy of animal rights. He did volunteering work for the refugees, because suffering does not know any borders. When it comes within your reach in your home, you simply have to do something. As part of his animal advocacy activities, it has been a great honor and pleasure to translate "Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust" by Charles Patterson into Croatian.

My story of a harp seal pup Danny and his family, Look for Me Under the Rainbow, is at a 67% discounted price on Amazon. Sunday, May 24, 2020, 8:00 AM PDT through Sunday, May 31, 2020, 12:00 AM PDT Time will show whether we were right or not, whether we raised such an outcry in vain and whether it was really necessary to shock the world with heart-rending reports and photographs, to upset the daily routine of ordinary people, disturbing their time for rest and their recreational habits, or spoiling their freshly-cooked meal. I can only hope that one day we shall be forgiven if it turns out that man is responsible for the extinction of the last inhabitant of the seas, and the walls of death on their ghostly routes come to clutch us all in their deadly suffocating grip. I shall stop writing for a moment. Erwin is coming and, if I'm not mistaken, he seems to be bringing me a mug of steaming coffee. I admit I need it with the yearning of an addict. Look for Me Under the Rainbow is a work of fiction, though the killing of harp seals in Canada is a reality which has been going on for decades already. Despite the huge public outcry and many national bans on the import and sale of seal products, the massacre on ice continues. Every year, tens of thousands of seals fall victim to human greed. Although Look for Me Under the Rainbow is listed in a program for elementary schools in Croatia as a reading of choice for seventh graders, it is written for everyone. For all of us, no matter our age, who will open our hearts and minds and with small steps in our lives start a big change on a global scale. Thank you all who will download this touching story during its promo week and write honest reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Thank you for helping this important cause and for spreading the message. You can download Look for Me Under the Rainbow here: https://amzn.to/2Xm33q8. My eBook A World Without Color is at a permanent price of $0.99, while you can download my new novel January River as an eBook for $2.99.
