New Children’s Book coming from Jemsbooks!

I am happy to announce that there will be a new children’s book coming from Jemsbooks later this year. My husband, John, talented illustrator and cover creator, is working on it now. I am such a slave driver and always looking over his shoulder to review and edit his work. Poor guy! But if you work for me you must produce excellence! LOL!

I won’t give away too much about this book except that it is about a hermit crab named Clarence Henry. He was a pet in one of our fish tanks. This book will be similar to Jerry in that it is a crustacean. I will have a special section in the back that will delight children and adults of all ages. That is all I am going to tell you.

Check out Jerry the Crabby Crayfish for a little taste of the sea to get ready for Clarence Henry! Jerry recently won a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award. He is smiling now! Click on Jerry’s title or the cover below to go to Amazon. Barnes & Noble is here.


Stay tuned for more here and on my website –

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

Please pray for all those who are in the way of another storm, Hurricane Irma. We have to thank God for all our blessings every day! I will keep all of you who are in need and without a home in my prayers daily. May God watch over you and bless you.

Thank you for stopping by! Please come back again!

Blessings & hugs to all!

    I’m looking forward to learning more about Clarence Henry, Janice. Keep crackin’ that whip, I’m waiting for the cover reveal. 😉
    So many of us are sharing in your thoughts of those in the path of the terrible hurricanes of this ugly hurricane season.
    Love and hugs.

    I LOVE reading children’s books! No matter the topic that’s covered, they all have teachable moments that are crucial to a child’s development. I wrote a blog on the topic here!

      Yes, I agree. Children’s books do help to teach children about life. My children’s books have life lessons in all of them. Thank you for stopping by. 🤗
