HAPPY 2019!


This year in 2019 my goals will be high as in the past. I find that if I give myself a challenge I will try to rise up to it! I feel most people, if given a lofty goal, will do their best to reach it!

In 2018 I gave myself a Goodreads Challenge to read and review 90 books. I reached my goal and read 102 books and reviewed them all on Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

In 2018 I gave myself a goal to write and publish 5 books. I did it! I reached my goal!

In 2018 I supported my fellow authors by interviewing them, guest posts on my blog and theirs.

In 2018 I gave away and offered promotions on many of my books.

In 2019 my goals are:

Read and Review 95 books

Write and Publish 5 books

Help my fellow authors by interviews and guest posts on my blog

Give away more books from my blog contests


The Books I plan to Write in 2019 are:

Book 6 of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series

Book 3 of Abby & Holly Series

Book 4 of Abby & Holly Series

A children’s book about a Dragon

Book 1 of a YA Fantasy Series

Here’s a link to my Newsletter to read more about what Jemsbooks has accomplished in 2018.

Being an indie author I wear many hats: writer, author, publisher, promoter, marketer, blogger, editor and supporter of other authors.

Sometimes these positions become all encompassing, taxing, and overwhelming for one person to complete successfully. I have had to lean on many of my wonderful friends online to bolster me up by their kindnesses in spreading the word about my books through re-blogs and sharing on social media. For all that they do, I am truly grateful.

Here are many of them listed below. I promise to continue to support all of you in 2019!

Authors & Friends

I apologize if I forgot anyone. Thank you all for your continuing support in 2018!

More Authurs & Friends

Whatever I do in 2019 I will enjoy writing and publishing as many books as I possibly can.

I will continue to write children’s stories in rhyme with life lessons that encourage children to be kind to others, respect elders and each other, listen to your parents, accept differences in others, not to be lazy, and not to accept bullying.

I will continue to encourage parents to read to their children daily.

I will continue to welcome hearing from readers and supporters about my books.

I will continue to LOVE receiving reviews! LOL!

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind support. Stay strong, stay positive and stay well, my friends!



Blessings in 2019 and hugs!
