Goals for 2018 were Reached!

This year – 2018 – has been a productive year for Jemsbooks! We published 5 books. My goal was to write and publish 5 books! We did it!!

To purchase any of these new books from 2018 click on the title beneath the cover. You can also click on covers to the right of this post for purchase. There is still time to purchase ebooks for Christmas! Happy shopping!

Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab – Children’s book -This book teaches children to work hard and be the best you can be. (Published in February) There are a few photos and information about the real Clarence Henry who was a pet in an aquarium we had in our home.

Mariah’s Revenge – Sequel to Hunting Mariah – Mystery/Suspense/Thriller – (Published in March) Be prepared to read until you are finished – you will not be able to put this one down just as the first book, Hunting Mariah.

Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier – Children’s book – This book teaches children the importance of loving and caring for their pets. (Published in March)

Abby & Holly School Dance – New series for MG/PT/YA girls – mysteries, ghosts, and surprises This is a spinoff from Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. This series encourages MG/PT/YA to respect parents, elders and each other, be kind to others, accept differences, bullying will never be tolerated or accepted, treat one another as you would want to be treated, and family and friends are important. (Published in July)

Abby & Holly Series Book 2: Unfortunate Events – MG/PT/YA series for girls continues – same description as above for good values. This book deals with tough decisions in family life and that family is there to support you no matter what happens. (Published in October)

I also gave myself a goal of 90 books on Goodreads to read and review. I more than met my goal there! At this writing I have completed 100 books and counting. I expect to have 102 or more books read and reviewed by the end of this month.

Being an author I know how important and valuable reviews are of our books. Most readers will not even look at a book if it does not have several reviews. As for Amazon, they will not even consider our books valuable or give them a second look or think about helping to promote them. Books now need to have over 50 reviews to be considered profitable by Amazon to promote.

Readers out there – please help us by reviewing our books wherever you purchased them. You would give us a wonderful gift by doing this. We appreciate you and write for your benefit. You will encourage us to write more if you do. Thank you so much for your assistance and support! Much love & Hugs!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read about my goals for 2018. I will be doing a post soon for my goals for 2019. Stay tuned!



Blessings of the holidays and hugs to you all! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
