Jemsbooks for Christmas!

I recently received a surprise. One of the winners of my 5th Blogging Anniversary drawing – Annika Perry – sent me a photo of the book she won, Hunting MariahShe made it look so festive in the center of her lovely table decor. Thank you, Annika! You just gave me an early Christmas present by showcasing my novel!

Time is flying by! Christmas is only 11 days away! Not too much time to order autographed books from Jemsbooks unless you email me today at

There is plenty of time to order ebooks though! They make wonderful gifts to add to Kindles or other ereaders. I love books in any form! I have paperbacks, hardcovers and ebooks to read from. My love of reading takes many forms as long as I always have a book or ereader (Nook or Ipad) in hand. If I don’t have one or both nearby I suffer from separation anxiety! LOL!

All Jemsbooks are available as paperbacks and ebooks on Amazon and as paperbacks on Barnes & Noble and other online stores such as and

You can also access all of my books on this blog by clicking on the covers on the right and by going to my website and clicking on the covers to the right there too.


Give an author a Christmas gift by reviewing their books! We will love you for it!

Award-winning middle-grade/preteen/young adult series – Davey & Derek Junior Detectives is being enjoyed by all ages! Please check it out today. You will be pleasantly surprised – reminiscent of the Hardy Boys! Many other books to be enjoyed – I have 17 and counting.

Book 5 above of the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series recently won a Silver Medal in the Authorsdb Cover Contest to bring the total of book awards for Jemsbooks to 9! Six of these awards are for Davey & Derek Series alone! I am honored to have received each one of them.

I have spread a lot of love around in 2017 by reading and reviewing 97 books this year and counting. I planned to read 110 but will make 100 for sure. How many books have you read and reviewed this year?

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind support.

Merry Christmas and a healthy & Happy New Year to all from my house to yours with love!

Blessings & Hugs!
