Begins 1/8/16 & ends 2/8/16

Hi Everyone! It’s now 2016 and I wanted to start the year off with a bang or I should say with a giveaway from Goodreads! All my previous giveaways have been successful and a lot of fun to do. Here’s your chance to get in on all the fun of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives. Last year I did a giveaway of Book 1, The Case of the Missing Cell Phone. If you don’t have the first one here is the link for Amazon paperback, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Create Space. Check out the 5-star reviews for both books on my Amazon Page.

I had a wonderful time writing this series and felt like a kid again. I plan on beginning Book 3 soon and shortly thereafter working on a series of adventures for girls.

Here is the synopsis of Book 2:

Davey and Derek Donato are twins but not identical. They gleaned the idea to be detectives from a book their parents bought them on their tenth birthday. The twins discover a black cat and some magic when they visit with their Great Aunt Gigi. The cat tries to communicate with the boys. But what does the cat want to tell them?

Most authors I know have many irons in the fire at the same time. I am no exception to that fact. I hope to complete a novel I am working on now within the next month. The holidays have put me behind but that is to be expected for family comes first.

Stay tuned for more info about upcoming books and series over this year and next. I am excited to get things rolling for 2016 and my fingers are getting itchy to write, write, and write again. Lol!

I will post new books and giveaways here and on my website.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you click this link to Goodreads Giveaway to get a chance to win! Good luck everyone!


Reviews of Jemsbooks are always welcome wherever you purchase or win! Thank you!

    Hi Janice, These books sound interesting. I’m thinking they are probably for the 8-12 age range. Would that be about right? I don’t have readers in that age group at the moment but am interested in checking them out. I notice Australia is included in the competition this time so, hopefully, I’ll join in, if I remember! 🙂

    If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you have probably read my reviews of a few of Janice Spina’s books for young children. I just love her books. Starting on January you can enter a giveaway for one of her books for 9-12 year olds. I can’t wait to read this one.
