Happy Valentine’s Day!!
I hope everyone’s year is off to a good-start and you’re following through with all those pesky New Year’s resolutions. Like most, my personal New Year’s resolution is to lose weight (get fit & eat better). My professional resolutions as Yahrah St. John is to produce four excellently written books in 2016 and connect with more readers and colleagues by attending multiple conference and author events.
Below is my current 2016 schedule:
- Love Between the Covers – Orlando Orange County Library – February 20th
- Delta Readership Sip & See with Brenda Jackson – March 5th
- Romance Slam Jam – Detroit, MI – April 28-April 30th
- Romance Writers of America – San Diego, CA July 14th-July 17th
- Building Relationships Around Books (BRAB) – Memphis, TN October 9-11th
In addition to organizing my busy schedule. I’ve been hard at work working on two books.
With my March 1st deadline looming for my next Harlequin Kimani release, titled Taming Her Tycoon, I had to get busy and push out my self-published book. My Knights of Los Angeles series which will be debut January 2017 with Lucius Knight’s story. Sexy, yet charming corporate raider Lucius is intent on getting his hands on Brooks & Johnson, a rising organic baby products company and the vivacious woman who owns it. Lucius never imagined that any woman could light his fire, but Naomi Brooks strikes a chord with him and he’s willing to do anything to have her and her company. Will he win the battle for her company? Or will he fall for the headstrong beauty instead?
I admit I’ve been a bit delayed in finishing up Unchained Hearts, the first book in the Hart Sisters trilogy. You’ll be treated to plus-sized London Hart’s struggle to find love with army veteran Chase Tanner in April 2016. I’m about half-way there in this unique story so don’t give up on me, I’ll get it done. Still smarting after her ex-husband ran off with all her money and steadily gaining weight, London Hart isn’t expecting to fall hard for ex-Special Forces member Chase Tanner. Chase is just as reluctant since he found his ex-wife cheating with his best friend after three tours in Iraq. Add he’s suffering from PTSD and London’s got her hands full. Can she free Chase of his demons and show him love is even better the second time around?
CAPPUCINNO KISSES’ release date of June 1, 2016 is drawing near so stay tuned for upcoming contests and special events. Cappuccino Kisses is a follow-up to my 2013 Draysons Sprinkled with Love series and will introduce a new trio of Seattle Draysons who love to bake, but love even harder. Fall in love with Mariah Drayson: The infertile divorcee who has put love on the shelf and instead put on her apron to get the Lillian’s of Seattle bakery off the ground, but when she meets dashing coffee importer Everett Myers and his adorable son EJ; Mariah begins re-evaluating her position on love and what makes a family.
Until next time…
