Ahoy there! Good news to spread around. My book, Sarafina and the Pirates Spyglass and I will be in an on-line magazine article next month! The magazine is called “lEcho des mers” or the “The Echo of the Seas” from Festival Des Pirates, produced by MFT production out of Quebec. Website forthcoming. You can also go to “Festival Des Pirates.
The article will introduce me and give you insight into me as an author, how I came to write the book, and what my inspiration was. Then it goes on to tell you what the book is about and how Sarafina goes on many adventures by herself AND with a scurvy lot of pirates. It tells of the people she meets and the perils she must go through and how she overcomes them.
There is a surprise coming up in Book II of the series that will catch everyone off guard — although, it’s not due to come out for another couple of months. So, you’ll have to be patient. I know a lot of you are already looking forward to Book II and I am just as excited as you are — but, I’ll not spoil the surprise. More exciting adventures and trouble, glory, and fun comes out in full swing.
I went into Beaufort yesterday to check on a few places that sell my book and there is was! Front and center!! Couldn’t resist a picture! This is in “The Scuttlebutt” book and gift store on Front st in Beaufort North Carolina. OH I also forgot to mention that another Book store is going to carry my book! It’s called “The Bookstore” in Moreheard City North Carolina! Also stopped by the gift shop inside the North Carolina Maritime museum and she said she will be in touch soon regarding my book! I’m so excited!!
Huzzah! I discovered that “Sarafina and the Pirate’s Spyglass” had made it overseas! It has been found in Germany, Japan and even France. Here are several of the places where else it has been found. Needless to say I am ecstatic about it and just so overwhelmed! Thank you all very much for your support.
Hello there everyone! I got some exciting news. I am now in two school libraries! I can be found in the Blessed Sacrament School in Pawnee Illinois and also in the St. Agnus Catholic School in Springfield Illinois. I am currently working on getting my book in California as well. I also have plans to bring it to life in the Carteret county schools in North Carolina. I am very excited that The Beaufort Maritime Museum may carry it in their store in Beaufort North Carolina where, it just so happens, is where the main character is from!
And don’t forget you can order your copy from here on my website. Better hurry! Book II is coming out soon!! Thank you all.

Hello there everyone! Just wanted to tell you that through this week only you will receive a spyglass necklace with your purchase of “Sarafina and the Pirate’s Spyglass” through my website at jayehelm.com It is made out of brass, about the size of a small pointer finger and is retractable. It would make a great addition to any pirate look! Thank you.
I was so surprised when I got a call from my daughter saying that one of her friends that bought my book wanted to meet me in North Carolina!! I live in Georgia. So I hop on a plan and we met at IHOP and had a wonderful brunch. I got to meet one of my fans and was tickled pink!! She was so excited to meet me. And wanted a sequel! Told her part two was coming out soon! It was fun!! Except I forgot to get a picture!! I had to go to the airport and didn’t have much time. But it was amazing to meet one of my “fans”!!! Thank you Carolyn, wonderful to meet you!! Hope I can meet more of you!!
I am so happy! Lots and lots of good comments and several 5-Star reviews have been happening! People are still asking for autographed copies of the book! I am just so excited that people are enjoying the story.
That was my intention all along. Sarafina and the Pirate’s Spyglass has been a joy for me to write since the beginning. I could see this young girl on many adventures and my deep interest in Pirates made a good combination.
Plus, I also go to Pirate Festivals all over, dressed in authentic pirate attire to entertain and educate the crowd.
I hope to find Sarafina and the Pirate’s Spyglass on many bookshelves in lots of stores soon! It’s already made it to two in Beaufort, North Carolina and I’m going to work hard to see it in more stores across the U.S. Thanks to everyone for your support.
