On Vacation until November 5th!


Hi Everyone!


I am currently on vacation until November 5, 2016. I will do a post when I get back and share some of my photos of where I have been.


It has been a busy year for me and time to take some much needed rest and relaxation. I will be getting back to completing my newest book in the Davey & Derek Series when I return.

I plan to complete three or more short stories to add to a collection for the end of the year or beginning of next. I will publish this collection and announce it here. I don’t want to get ahead of myself just yet. I tend to put a lot of unnecessary pressure upon myself at times, reason I need this vacation. Ha!

Hope you will check out my newest children’s book, Colby the Courageous Cat, soon. It has received some reviews already. Go to http://amazon.com/author/janicespina7 to see them and all my books.


Don’t forget to sign up for a chance to win my newest novel, How Far Is Heaven, on Goodreads until November 23rd! Here is the link to my post about it. https://jemsbooks.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/goodreads-giveaway-how-far-is-heaven/

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind support!

Remember: Reading Gives You Wings to Fly! Soar with Jemsbooks!

Blessings & hugs!
