Blogging Anniversary – Special Promotions!


I can’t believe it but I have been blogging for FOUR YEARS now! WordPress sent me a reminder but I got so busy with stuff that I forgot to post the news! I also received today a notice that I now have posted 500 posts! It’s exciting to think that I wrote that many already. I think my husband believes it because he said my head is always in my blog!


A special promotion will be taking place to celebrate this momentous occasion. I am offering both of my novels, Hunting Mariah and How Far Is Heaven (Kindle copies) at the discounted price of .99 cents each – that is a discount of 81%. Now you must take advantage of this wonderful offer before you lose out. The promotion will run from 12/4/16 – 12/11/16 in time for Christmas shopping. Remember the price goes back up to $4.99 on 12/12/16.

Hunting Mariah

How Far Is Heaven 



Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you take advantage of this special offer.

Thank you for your kind support and following over these past four years. It wouldn’t have been as much fun without you!

Check out all Jemsbooks at and at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. There is something for all ages on your Christmas list.

Please check out these fantastic book trailers by Chris Graham for both novels.

Blessings of the Holiday Season to one and all!



PLEASE NOTE: If you could not access these books at the .99 cent deal please be aware I have contacted Amazon. They are not available on Sunday. I should hear from them by tomorrow (Monday) to fix this. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for your patience! Now up and running! Yippee!

If anyone in the USA wishes to have a signed paperback of Hunting Mariah in time for Christmas, please contact me. I do not have any copies left of How Far Is Heaven at this time to send in time for Christmas but I can order some if you want one. Email me at for prices of book and shipping.
