May has been super busy. Working full-time and writing often has it challenges with time management, so I apologize for the tardy newsletter. I’ve been active on the radio circuit the last couple of months. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by my hometown of Chicago WKKC 89.3FM on Focus Talk, Dennis Snipe’s Talk Radio Show. If you missed the interview, listen on my website at http://www.yahrahstjohn.com/media/audio.
Next up, I’ll be discussing my writing career on Thursday, May 18th @ 5:30pm on Conversations Live with will air on the radio dial in Mississippi on WYAD 94.1 FM at 8:30 p.m. EST http://www.wyadonline.com . The show will also be streaming at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/conversations live and podcasted there.
If you love paperback books, my 25th book: MIAMI AFTER HOURS will be available on May 23rd. Prefer EBooks? MIAMI AFTER HOURS will come your way on June 1st.
It’s hard to believe that I’ve written 25 books, but it became real when the radio interviewers recently asked me about some of backlist. It really had me going back into the memory banks. Now I understand how hard it must be for singers to remember all their songs when you have a large body of work.
To celebrate, I’m working my silver book, I’m giving away two (2) Kindle Fires to the lucky winners who enter my Miami After Hours contest in June. Stay tuned to my website for details.
Below is a quick synopsis
She’s got sky-high ambitions to match the glamorous penthouses she shows, but real estate agent Angela Trainor keeps both feet firmly on the ground. Her attraction to her sexy boss, Daniel Cobb, needs to remain at bay, or it could derail her promising career. But when Daniel takes Angela under his wing, introducing her to clients at society events, mutual admiration becomes a sizzling physical connection.
Daniel has turned his starter company into Miami’s premier agency. In the process, he’s earned his place among the Millionaire Moguls—an elite and exclusive organization dedicated to paying success forward. He’s known for showering women with lavish gifts, attention…everything except commitment. Now the lovely Angela has discovered the pain in his past and is daring him to open up. But will it be enough to convince her that he wants so much more than just an unforgettable fling? Pre-Order your copy of Miami After Hours today: http://bit.ly/miamiafterhours.

I’m excited to share an exciting snippet that I’ve been working with eleven (11) Harlequin authors from a variety of book lines to debut a serial tentatively titled SECRETS OF A-LIST. I loved writing it because it shows that an author can write a love story regardless of race or color. I’m highly anticipating this 12-episode serial debut this fall. Stay tuned for more details.
My 26th book is TAMING HER BILLIONAIRE, the conclusion of Knights of Los Angeles series that began with Taming Her Tycoon will be released November 1st.
My idea of brother- and-against brother fighting for the family dynasty came from watching the television show, Empire. I love the arc of each character’s metamorphosis. Maximus can’t get past his father’s betrayal of giving half his birthright to his brother Lucius Knight with Tahlia Armstrong as tie-breaker vote. Maximus is equal parts charmer and schemer as he tries to retain his empire by seducing lovable heroine Tahlia. She becomes empathetic to Maximus plight after realizing her surrogate father Arthur Knight had faults. It’s exciting to see Maximus’ growth as he falls for Tahlia’s sweet nature and accepts his new brother. Pre-order your copy today of Taming Her Billionaire: http://bit.ly/tamebil.
My apologies that I was not able to make the RT Convention in May in Atlanta, work obligations at my day job prevented me from attending, but I promise you will find me at Romance Writers of America (RWA) convention at Walt Disney World’s Swan & Dolphin Resort from July 26-29, 2017. How can I not attend when it’s in my own back yard? Bring copies of your backlist or buy my new releases at the Readers for Life Literacy Autographing event on July 29th.
What am I working on now? Well, I’m a bit behind writing my next book: His San Diego Sweetheart, a new series titled: Millionaire Moguls of San Diego which will debut April 2018. Naval officer Vaughn Ellicott, is a hot and sexy surfer was out of my league. So I’m now learning about surfing. Maybe this adventure girl will even give it a try as research, who knows.
That’s all for now folks, but don’t stray too far from Yahrah St. John land.
Until the next episode…
