Jemsbooks – Wall of Books is Growing!

Here is my wall of books which is growing each year with 3-5 books published in a year. I am slowly running out of room for my covers. I have completely covered one wall with children’s and MG/PT/YA books and started on another wall with Novels for 18+. I may have to move to a bigger house to keep them all on display! However, that is not an option. Sigh! Maybe I will have to stop creating new books! That’s not an option either! Haha!


Just to refresh your memory, I began my journey into publishing officially in 2013 even though I have been writing for many years. I tried to go the traditional publishing route beginning in 2008. I avidly sought an agent at that time too without much success. Without having a physical book for the publishing houses and agents to look at made it even more difficult. I only had manuscripts.

In 2013 I made the decision to self publish after receiving Dear Janice letters from several publishing houses. Since then I feel free and happy to have done so now with 26 books (and counting) published on my own. I’m not saying it has been an easy road to traverse, on the contrary, it has been a difficult one. At times I felt despondent and wanted to stop publishing but continued writing. But then I would write another story and my talented husband would illustrate it and create a beautiful cover forcing me to go on. I will continue to create more fun adventures and stories for all ages until I am no longer physically able to do so. God willing that that will be long time in the future!

I pray that my books will one day become a household word with parents and others. Please help me in this endeavor by reading and reviewing my books and other indie authors books. We all need your help!

Please let me say this to all perspective authors who choose to travel on this difficult road to Indie Publishing, don’t give up. Do what your heart tells you to do and never give up! We fellow Indie Authors will support you in your endeavors, all you have to do is ask.

I’d like take the time to thank all my fellow Indie Authors for their unending support during my journey. I hope to keep going along this road with your help and continued support. May God bless you with many successes and blessings! Much Love, Janice

I feel blessed to be able to do what I love to do every day – write! I have been blessed to have many online friends who support me and my books. I feel blessed to have received many awards for my work. I feel blessed to be able to continue to do what I love to do with God’s help. Thank you!
