Goodreads Giveaway of Colby the Courageous Cat!

I am happy to announce I have a new Goodreads Giveaway beginning on May 31 through June 30, 2017 of my children’s book, Colby the Courageous Cat! It will be available to USA residents only. I will be offering three autographed books in this giveaway. 

This book was dedicated to the memory of my daughter’s cat, Colby, that she had for nine years. Colby really was adventurous. He would stay out all night and only stop in for a quick meal and a head rub and then off he would go again in search of little critters to chase. One day he chased a chipmunk up our chimney on the outside of the house. I was weeding in the front and along raced a chipmunk that tried to run up my leg to hide with Colby close behind. I screamed and the chipmunk ran up the chimney with Colby on his tail. They both got half way up when gravity took over. It was hilarious and worthy of a video which we didn’t take. Oh well, no $10,000 for me! LOL!

This book is written in rhyme and carries an important life lesson as do all Jemsbooks. Kids will love the adventures that Colby and his siblings get into.


Colby is one of a litter of four kittens. The kittens get into all kinds of trouble. Being the biggest and strongest, Colby’s mother expects him to watch over the smaller kittens and keep them safe. Read and find out what Colby does to meet his mother’s expectations.

Please sign up below for a chance to win one of three books.  Goodreads Giveaway begins May 31, 2017 and ends June 30, 2017! Good luck everyone!

  2. Must be a great story, Colby, the Courageous Cat. Would love to have a copy, but i don’t live in the USA. What a shame. All the best for wherever it’s winning.
