Writing for 18+ can be challenging!

As an eclectic writer I find some genres and ages more challenging than others to write. One of them is 18+. I began as a children’s book author and have written 19 books so far with another in the works.

Writing for 18+ is a lot more challenging to me than children’s stories since I have to be a grownup to write them. Ha! I can’t help being a kid at heart and it shows in my books. Adding some humor there gives me a little relief from the stress of being an adult when I write.

As this writing I have seven books for 18+ in multi-genres. It has been fun to jump around to different ages and genres. I feel doing this keeps me fresh and charged for the next project. There are several projects in the works at this time too. Phew!

Here is the link to my books for 18+ on Amazon:

https://Amazon.com/author/jespina77

Here are the seven books to choose from beginning with the latest book. There will be more in 2023!

There is something for everyone here. The material ranges from angels to serial killers. There is everything from mystery, suspense, paranormal, clairvoyance, thrillers to romance. The characters are diverse, intriguing and strong with many women at the helm here. I hope you will find something to your taste for this holiday season or any time.

As I said before, I have many irons in the fire and will be putting together some new material in 2023 for you to choose from. I don’t want you to get bored. The funny thing about writing, it takes longer to write a book than my readers can read them. So, bear with me. I have a lot of writing to do. But in the meantime, there are all these books to choose from to keep you from getting bored. Many of these books would make perfect gifts for the holidays, birthdays and anniversaries or other occasions that are coming up soon. Happy shopping!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Come back again soon, you hear! You are always welcome! Thank you for your kind support and any reviews you post on Amazon! I can’t wait to read them!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Have you read How Far is Heaven yet? A romantic/paranormal novel that will steal your heart!

How Far is Heaven is a romantic/paranormal/mystery that will grip you in its entirely while stealing your heart and bringing tears to your eyes. Make sure to have the tissues close by.

We all need a good cry every so often. Right? I read this book so many times as I was editing. Each time I had a good cry. It was cathartic. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did when I wrote it.

Blurb:

Parker and Priscilla Wilfork are happily married with two children. Life seemed perfect and peaceful until Parker goes on a business trip and does not return. Priscilla finds her world turned upside down when she searches for answers to how and why Parker disappeared.

One night Priscilla has a dream that Parker is an angel. Does this mean that Parker is now dead? After two years and no sign of Parker except in her dreams, Priscilla makes the decision to tell her children that their father has gone to Heaven.

Priscilla tries to get their lives back together until one day Deanna disappears too. Now Priscilla must go on a quest to find her daughter before it’s too late. She fears her daughter’s disappearance might be connected in some way to her husband’s. Can Priscilla go on with her life if she loses Deanna too?

With the help of a handsome police Sergeant, Blake Furelli, they work together to try to find Deanna and solve the mystery behind Parker’s disappearance. During this trying time, Blake, who suffered a loss of his own, feels drawn to the ethereal beauty of Priscilla.

I began writing this book after I had a dream about this subject of missing people. I had to write it down before it was lost forever. If you haven’t read this book, I hope you will check it out soon. As I wrote it, I felt my heart breaking along with the main character as she searches for her husband and then her daughter. How far would you go to find any one in your family? Maybe you would go to the ends of the Earth. I know I would. Read what Priscilla does.

Here is a book trailer created by Chris Graham and me:

New Review of The Misunderstood Angel (Branyrd the Angel Series Book 1)!

I love receiving reviews of my books! This is a new one that I just noticed for my newest book, The Misunderstood Angel (Branyrd the Angel Series Book 1). Thank you so much Amazon Customer for this lovely review! So happy to hear you enjoyed it!! You have made my day!!

Kindle Customer

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Branyrd Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 8, 2022

Branyrd wants so badly to move up the ranks, but her saucy mouth always gets her in trouble & higher-ranking Angels aren’t allowed to befriend her. Finally, God gives her a special assignment, but she thinks she messed it up, too. It is heartwarming to see how she “grows up” & how forgiving God is!
For a different genre from Janice, it is very good!

Blurb:

This is not a children’s book. Branyrd is a different kind of angel. She has a difficult time being understood because of her habit of getting into all kinds of trouble and for her unacceptable language. Angels are not supposed to swear.

This angel must earn levels to be accepted by the LORD. She is presently at Angel Fourth Class and must ascend to Angel First Class in order to be given a mission to travel to Earth to help a human in trouble.

Once she reaches Angel First Class, she is given a mission and travels to Earth to help a battered woman and her child. Since she is so new to the ways on Earth, Branyrd is accompanied by her Guardian Angel Benedicto, Angel First Class on High, who guides and advises her.

Branyrd doesn’t know what she will do or how she will complete this mission. She must show her strengths and succeed, or she may be demoted. What she finds on Earth is not what she expected. It certainly is nothing like Heaven. There are dangerous people but also those who she will miss dearly when she must leave.

Branyrd is a different kind of angel. She is sassy but sweet, funny but serious at times, dedicated but flighty. She is so many things in one little package. She will make you laugh, cry and warm your soul and steal your heart. She is an unforgettable character with a voice to help others and do all she can to make a differece in our world. I think we all need a little Branyrd in our lives to help us along our troubled ways.

Check out Branyrd’s book today on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

JEMSBOOKS NOVELS FOR 18+ are available on Amazon as paperbacks and ebooks (Kindle) and Barnes & Noble as paperbacks.

Watch for book 2 coming in 2023 and more books beyond.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Please come back again soon. You are always welcome. Also, please remember to make an author happy today and every day when you write a review of one of our books. We will love for your efforts! Keep reading and stay healthier in mind and body!

A Wonderful Thanksgiving – Much to be Thankful for!

I feel so blessed to have a loving and special family! Each Thanksgiving we spend together is memorable – full of love, sharing, caring, food and fun! Each year we go to my sister’s house. She has plenty of food, drink, fun and beautiful decorations!

We usually have about 30+ in her house. This year we only had 16. It was almost empty but we still had a wonderful day. It was so good to see everyone since we don’t get together very often – mostly at holidays – Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. More of my family stopped by later for dessert.

John and I kicked up our old, achy heels a little. We didn’t want to be called old foggies. I can keep up with the best of them still! Haha!

Today, the day after Thanksgiving was spent tirelessly putting up Christmas decorations! We are both exhausted! I wonder how much longer I will want to put up so many. I will share my decorations in another post. You will see what I am talking about – too many!!!

Well, I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday. Take care and enjoy your family every day not just during holidays! Cherish them and let them know how much they mean to you. Love to you!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Feel free to come back any time. You are always welcome.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Novels that have mystery/suspense/thrills with a touch of romance!

When I write a mystery I sprinkle in some suspense, a few thrills and a touch of romance. In this two-book series I added a lot of suspense and a serial killer on the loose. Are you ready to read this unputdownable series – Hunting Mariah and Mariah’s Revenge?

Blurb:

AUTHORSDB FIRST LINES CONTEST – FINALIST!
 
An insane killer, obsessed with blood and death, seeks revenge with those he perceives wronged him. He is now on the loose. His next victim may be Mariah.

Mariah has lost her memory. Will she remember what has transpired in her past? Can Mariah escape this deadly killer’s grasp. Will she finally be safe? Will the killer be apprehended?

When I wrote this book my daughter was on her way to college. As any mother would be, I was nervous about her going there and walking at night to and from classes. I had heard about a rape on a college campus at that time. This caused me to have a nightmare that became the idea for this book.

I had many more dreams about this as I was writing this book. I couldn’t get the killer out of my head or my dreams, night or day. He drove me crazy because he wanted me to tell his story. I published the first book in 2014 but didn’t want to do another. When I was requested to continue the story by a reader, I took up the task and again had nightmares once the killer invaded my dreams. I waited until 2018 to complete the second book.

Blurb:

AUTHORSDB FIRST LINES CONTEST – FINALIST!
 
This book begins where the first book, Hunting Mariah, left off. This suspense/thriller/crime novel will keep you turning pages as the tension grows. There will be twists and turns and some surprises. Many of the same characters will be in play to give support and encouragement to Mariah along the way.


A new man comes into Mariah’s life that reminds her of someone she wants to forget. He threatens to bring back the horrors that she and her family once endured. While the one she wants to forget suffers from a horrendous attack that puts his life in jeopardy.


Mariah must draw on her strength and resilience to survive danger at every turn. How much more can Mariah endure? How far will Mariah go to protect her family?

Both of these books were Finalists in the Authorsdb First Lines Contest. The prologue is gripping and brutal. You will have to take a deep breath and keep reading as many of these readers did to put my books in the finals of this contest.

Now that I am into many other projects Mariah keeps invading my mind again. I think she wants to continue to tell her story or come up with a new one to share with readers. Since I am into three projects at this time, Mariah will have to wait. I will keep pushing her to the back of my mind until I can take on the task once again.

Here are some reviews on Amazon using AllAuthor.com promos.

Book trailers – Hunting Mariah by Chris Graham, Mariah’s Revenge by J.E. Spina

Writing this type of story takes a lot out of the writer. I felt exhausted by dealing with the brutal and raw thoughts and deeds of the killer. I hope you hold on tight as you read these books. They will leave you breathless as I was writing them, I’m sure.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I would love to hear from you about your thoughts on this series. Would you like to see more of Mariah? Pleases come back again soon. Thank you for your kind support!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Happy Thanksgiving!

A Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans! If you do not celebrate Thanksgiving may you have a lovely day whatever you do.

There will be turkey and all the fixings, mashed potatoes, squash, green beans or other veggies, gravy, rolls, and more. Of course there are plenty of desserts – pies, cakes, cookies, etc. Yikes my pants will be groaning! I always make my famous pumpkin pie! I can’t wait to have a slice!

Having turkey only once a year makes it extra special! My mouth is watering just thinking of it! Yum!

Here is a poem I wrote in 2019 for this occasion. May every day be as special as Thanksgiving!

A Time to be Thankful

by Janice Spina ((C) 2019)

It’s a time to be thankful.

It’s a time to be helpful.

It’s a time to be caring.

It’s a time to be sharing.

It’s a time to remember others.

It’s a time to remember that we are all sisters and brothers.

It’s a time to show love.

It’s a time to thank God above.

Thanksgiving is a time to remember that every day we should be thankful.

There is always plenty of food, drink, fun and conversation each Thanksgiving. As the family grows larger it is not always easy to get everyone together but we do our best.

Enjoy your day and may you be blessed with all good things in life! If you would like more information about the Thanksgiving holiday go here. Happy eating!

There is always time to catch up your some reading in between eating. Here are some of the AllAuthor.com promos I had to share for Thanksgiving. If not now, when? Ha!

Novels for 18+ that will keep you turning pages!

Are you looking for an unputdownable read? Well, I just may have just the one for you below.

As you know already, I write in multi-genres and for all ages. I love to mix things up a bit. Most of my books for all ages have some surprises, especially my novels for 18+

In this post I would like to focus on just one of my books – An Angel Among Us (A Short Story Collection) of 15 stories. What these stories have in common is surprise endings. Each story is in a different genre or multi-genres with a touch of the unusual.

Blurb:

A collection of short stories that covers several genres including romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal. This book is dedicated to a courageous friend who passed this year. The first story is specially created for her and is the inspiration for the title of this book.

As I mentioned in the blurb above this book was dedicated to a dear friend from high school who I had connected several years ago. At that time, she had lost her beloved husband and was feeling ill herself. We corresponded back and forth, and she told me at one point that she had stage 4 breast cancer. My heart was breaking for her. She was not going to have treatment and had given up. She wanted to join her husband.

When I heard this, I told her about my book and promised to write a story for her and include it in my short story collection. The book was to be dedicated to her.

She was soon rapidly declining in health and could no longer correspond with me on her own. She enlisted a friend to write down her thoughts to send to me.

I knew I had to hurry with the story for time was running out for my friend. I sent her the completed story and she was thrilled and grateful that I would dedicate my book to her. Unfortunately, the book was not completed in time. She passed away a few months before I published it.

My heart broke for her. She was a lovely person with a remarkable sense of humor, kindhearted, generous and sweet. She left behind an empty space in our lives and in this world, for not many are like her. May she RIP.

Each time I look at this book I think of Anne and know that she is smiling down on me for remembering her this way. I only wish I could have done more for her.

If you are looking for some short stories to entertain you, then this is the book for you. They are quick reads, and you can read more than one at night or anytime. Sometimes we just want to read a short story and not get into a 300-page novel. Especially if we are busy and don’t have time to sit and read a long book. I hope you enjoy Anne’s story along with the rest of them. Some of the stories will have you holding your breath, while others will grip your heart and bring tears to your eyes.

Here are some reviews from Amazon using AllAuthor.com promos.

JEMSBOOKS NOVELS FOR 18+ are available on Amazon as paperbacks and ebooks (Kindle) and Barnes & Noble as paperbacks.

A Sad Announcement about my Hermit Crab – Sebas Jr.!

While we were away on vacation my hermit crab – Sebas Jr. passed away. My son was feeding our fish when we were in Aruba. He told me that on the first day Sebas Jr. was at the bottom of the tank outside of his shell. He didn’t have time to remove him and planned on doing that the next day. When he came back the next day Sebas had disappeared – he had been eaten by the fish there. They had a tasty snack of crab. Sigh!

Here are the many pics of Sebas in action in the past eating a clam, his favorite treat.

Evidently Sebas was in the process of molting but didn’t quite make it through the exhausting process and succumbed. We were saddened by this announcement and felt badly for my son who had this happen on his watch.

Here are some of his previous molting’s that were successful.

We will fondly remember Sebas for how well he cleaned the tank and kept the rest of the inhabitants in the tank in line. The fish are having a grand old time now without him there. Each time a clam is dropped into the tank they have a free for all getting at it.

Here is Trigger having a wonderful time snacking on a clam and not having to fight Sebas for it.

Trigger was successful in opening the clam and emptying its contents. He wore a smug look on his face (not really – but I imagined he did) after eating it all. The other fish watched but didn’t dare get near him for he has a fierce bite with his teeth.

We hope to obtain another hermit crab sometime. But it isn’t easy to get a large one like we had. They are usually so small that the other fish might attack it and eat it. Sigh! If and when we do get one, I will share some photos of it with you.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Come back again soon!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

Do you love animal stories for your children?

As a prolific and multi-genre author I love creating stories for children to enjoy. I have 19 stories at present for your children to read about animals and other creatures such as dragons and an alien. Most of my children’s books are in rhyme – two aren’t. They are illustrated by my talented husband who also created the covers.

If you haven’t read any of my children’s books, now is the time to check them out in time for the holidays. Children love books and need them more than they need candy and other stuff. Reading gives children so much more than watching TV, playing video games, etc.

If you want your children to grow healthier and happier – get them reading daily. Reading is good for you too, parents. Check out my blog posts about the importance of reading here and here.

Did you know that Jemsbooks Children’s books have received a total of 16 awards – 7 Mom’s Choice Awards, 8 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards and 1 Top Shelf Award – Runnersup?

Https://amazon.com/author/janicespina7

Jemsbooks Children’s books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Did you know that reading is good for you? It not only increases your word vocabulary and stimulates your mind, but also gives you a feeling of wellbeing and promotes good health, dispels feelings of loneliness, improves your memory, promotes better patterns of sleep, and don’t forget – it brings families closer when they share and read books together.

Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book – even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, heighten their creativity, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, enhance their health and welbeing and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!

I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!
