Going Offline for a Little While!


Hi everyone!

If you don’t hear from me for a little while it is because I will be taking some time off soon for rest, relaxation and to get away from social media and all that goes with it.

I need to get recharged every so often since I spend so much time writing my books, answering emails, blogging, on social media, promoting and editing not only my work but also others. It is time to get away from it all! Ahh! I’m not even taking along my beloved iPad. That is shocking! I go everywhere with it! Love it!

There will be an adjustment and some separation anxiety at first but I’ll get over it. My husband tells me it will pass. Ha! Little does he know how attached I am to it. Wait a minute, he does know! He’s always trying to detach my hands from it when it’s dinner time. I woudn’t eat if he didn’t cook each night. God bless him!  He’s wonderful!


I have scheduled several posts that will be running while I take a break. Please note that I will check in as soon as I return and share some new posts about how I survived without my…iPad! Sigh! Yikes! I will miss you, iPad! Oh, and you too, readers! Sorry.

In the meantime enjoy reading all the scheduled posts and keep reading daily! Reading is good for your health. Please check out all my books on Jemsbooks.com, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can also click on covers to the right of this post and be taken directly to Amazon and Barnes & Noble in a second! Isn’t technology wonderful! Right – only if is works! Ha!


I will get back into publishing two books when I return to the writing and publishing world. Thereafter I will begin book 2 of the girls’ series and book 6 of Davey & Derek Series. See, why I must take a break?! I get tired thinking of all I have to do. But I am relentless and will not stop. John will have to take my phone away from me. I just may sneak a peek at my email once in awhile. Ooh! It’s addictive! Sigh! Help me! LOL!


Thank you for stopping by and for your continued support. Don’t forget to review books that you purchase to show a little love to authors. We will love you back!


Blessings & Hugs,
