More Books Coming from Jemsbooks!


Now that I have completed the second edition of Hunting Mariah with a new cover, completed and downloaded new covers for both Broose the Moose on the Loose and Davey & Derek Junior Detectives, Book 3, The Case of the Mysterious Black Cat, which both won book awards recently, I can begin to write the sequel to Hunting Mariah.

It has been a long time in coming. I promised to write a sequel once my friend, Lorraine, who I met in Aruba several years ago requested it. We go to Aruba in the fall each year and I had to apologize each year to her when I didn’t have it ready. Well, this year I still won’t have it ready. Sorry, Lorraine, but I promise to get it published by the end of this year or beginning of next year.

Please check out these books and stay tuned for the sequel to Hunting Mariah! Click on covers or to go to Amazon or to Barnes & Noble.

My goal each year is to publish five books. So far I have only done that in 2015. Other years I have published two in 2013, four in 2014, five in 2015, four in 2016 and three plus new edition of novel in 2017. I hope to complete the sequel and maybe, just maybe write book 1 of the mystery series for girls before the end of the year to make five.

I will be in Methuen, Massachusetts on October 21, 2017 at St. Lucy’s Church Sodality Craft Fair for a book signing. I would love to see you there if you are in the area. I will sign books that you purchase that day or any you will bring that you have already purchased. Hope to see some of you there!

Thank you for stopping by and for your continued support. I want to encourage all ages to read. Happy reading!

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

Blessings & hugs to all!
