The end of summer is approaching as kids go back to school, but I’m just ramping up. My social media program thanks to my little sister is in full swing and I’ve seen my fan base grow exponentially most notably on Facebook, but on other pages as well. Great job Kim! I’m actually remembering to hashtag.

I would like to thank all the readers who entered the Untamed Hearts Contest and followed me on my 5-day Virtual Tour in July. If you missed it, you missed out on great gift card giveaways to retail, shopping and restaurants, not to mention the awesome Wine and Country gift basket.

In addition to my marketing push, I will be attending AC Arthur’s 3rd Annual Reader Appreciation Event: The Season of Shifters on August 29th-September 1st at the Walt Disney Resort Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL. I’ll be joining AC and half a dozen authors on a Writer’s panel. I will have the entire Harts of Arizona series: Entangled Hearts Volume I & II and Untamed Hearts as well as Dirty Laundry available for purchase at the event so bring a big suitcase! Feel free to bring any of my backlist books with you and I’ll happily sign them.

When I’m not marketing or working at my day job, I can be found in front of my computer giving you what you love best, romance. I’ve started writing Heat Waves of Desire. It will be the first book in the new Kimani series with authors Pamela Yaye and Lisa Marie Perry titled: CALIFORNIA DESERT DREAMS. Sneak peek: The series will highlight three best friends running a high-end resort in a California desert town. They’ll unravel mysteries and find the man of their dreams amidst the glitz and glamour at the Belleza. Look for the trilogy in Summer 2015.

Simultaneously, I’m working on my 18th book: Restless Hearts and the cover. It’s the final book in the Harts of Arizona series when bad boy Caleb meets debutante Addison. But don’t expect the same old love song. I’ve got some SERIOUS drama in the works for this couple along with the hot sexy romance you’ve come to expect from Yahrah St John. I’ve had to push the release date back to November to ensure I meet my Kimani deadline but you’ll get it before Thanksgiving. I’ll debut the cover next month.

Gosh, did I forget to mention I’ve completed the first chapter to my Dirty Laundry sequel? So many readers have inquired on the status and I won’t let you down, it’ll come in 2015.

That’s all for now. Happy Reading
