Hello Everyone,

This newsletter will be relatively brief as I hope to have more exciting news in June.

If you haven’t already done so, please enter the LOST WITHOUT YOU contest by answering 10 questions correctly about the book. If you answer all the questions correctly, your name will be entered in a drawing to win a bottle of Marc Jacobs LOLA perfume! There’s still time, so don’t delay. The contest ends May 31st, go to http://yahrahstjohn.net/category/contest/.

In celebration of my 10th book my family is throwing me a Milestone 10th book party on Memorial Day weekend. It’s just a week away and I’m super excited.

When I think about all the hours I’ve spent to get here: 2,860 pages and approximately 630,000 words written, I’m amazed at just what I can do when I put my mind to it.

Next week, I start my next adventure working with my designer to create the book cover for my first women’s fiction and 1st e-book: DIRTY LAUNDRY. Given the success of this new market, it was a no brainer to stop chasing the traditional publisher route as I’d done the last couple of years with this book and go direct to e-book. I hope to announce Dirty Laundry’s debut next month on Kindle and Nook. So stay tuned for more details and photos from my 10th book party on my Facebook page.

Have a great rest of the month and enjoy your Memorial Day holiday!
