New Release Spotlight!

Normally I don't to New Release Spotlights back to back, but it just so happens that the lovely Joy Avery also has a new novel, and I didn't want to miss about sharing it with you!


Write Now Literary is pleased to announce Maybe, Book Blast Tour with Joy Avery. August 3, 2017. @wnlbooktours @authorjoyavery Genre: Contemporary Romance ASIN: B072VJ9P6K

About The Book

Sometimes, all it takes is the right motivation… Artist Rana Lassiter has sworn off men. After being hurt, she prefers painting passionate scenes of love on her canvas instead of the real thing. But when she meets Mount Pleasance’s newest arrival, sexy and suave fireman Dallas Fontaine, she envisions a different kind of stroke than the ones she performs with her brush. To say she’s attracted to the debonair man is an understatement, but she refuses to fall victim to his good looks, charm or persistence. Dallas has never had a problem getting any woman he wants. And he wants Rana. In a way he’s never wanted any woman before. There’s just one problem…she doesn’t want him. But she will. By the time he’s done, she won’t be able to resist his blazing kisses. But nothing is easy, especially love. When a life-altering event occurs, it will test them both. Are they strong enough to forge through the catastrophic storm, or will they allow it to destroy their chance at happily-ever-after?
Rana eyed him curiously. “I like you?”
“I know.”
She barked a laugh. “I wasn’t confessing. I was asking—”
“If I wanted to kiss you? Why, yes, I do.”
When he tilted his head forward, Rana reeled back. “What do you think you’re doing?”
He would have actually been convinced she was insulted, had her eyes not been fixed on his mouth. “Giving you what you want.”

#AmWriting

As of yesterday, I was 4,453 words in on A Song For You, Book Two in The Lake Series. This is Breelyn's story. If you read Born To Be Wild, you know that Bree is Tangie's best friend. She's the waitress with the purple hair and a singer whose dream is to become a recording artist.

I always need to start with the visuals of my characters, and this is the one I put together for Book Two.


Originally, I'd considered having Spence be Bree's love interest, but after brainstorming with a few of my author buddies, I needed to present her with a challenge. She and Spence are too much alike - rebels who delight in going against the expected. So I decided to use gorgeous model/actor Travis Cure as the character role model for the man who comes into Bree's life.

Tangie left Eufaula, Alabama, the small lake town that my husband and I visited last summer, at the end of Book One. I didn't want Bree leaving too, so even though her career will be centered in Atlanta, I came up with a reason for her to stay. After all, the series is about Eufaula.

In keeping with the titles of my other books, this one has a theme song. A Song For You was made famous by the late Donny Hathaway. I'm sure you've heard dozens of contestants on American Idol/The Voice/America's Got Talent use it as their audition song.  Donny's version is my favorite, but since this is Bree's story, I wanted it sung by a female. This cover by Christina Aguilera is wonderful!

                                             

I will be keeping you updated on the progress of the story as I write. Until next time...

Status Update


Sales of Born To Be Wild have been wonderful. On Friday morning more than  600 copies had been purchased, and it hasn't been a month yet! Thank you to everyone who bought the book. Your support is appreciated more than you know. 💓

                                                   

Since the book released I've been spending most of my time on marketing and promotion. In addition to my regular social networking promotion, I did three author takeovers and one interview in some of the Facebook reader groups and a fourteen-stop blog tour.

Beverly Jenkins, the queen of African-American historical romance and one of my favorite authors, even did an unexpected promo for me on Facebook, which put a stupid grin on my face for days.

Now it's time to get back to writing. I started writing the first chapter of A Song For You, Book Two in The Lake Series this week and also created a first draft of the story photo collage. This is Breelyn's story. She is the best friend of Tangela, the female protagonist in Born To Be Wild, and from the comments I've read so far, readers seem to really like her.


Naturally, I'll be adding more pictures as the secondary characters show up. I already know who a couple of them are, but I need to sit down and work on an outline. All I have at this point are random story notes. I'm 2,000 words into the story, but since I'm not a pantser, I need a more structured guideline from which to work.

I'll keep you posted on how it's going. 😊

Book Feature: Naked Attraction ~ A Sweet & Sexy Romance and Enticed Forever ~ A Bad Boy Romance

I am proud and excited to shine the spotlight on my friend, Stella Ajanaku's two latest releases!

                                     

Author: Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
Genre: Romance/Contemporary/Interracial/Multicultural
No of Pages: 262
ISBN: 978-1542402040 (Paperback)

Quote:  “As long as you lock me up in the same cell as you, I’ll be happy to spend a long time behind bars without complaining.” ~ Mofe.

Read Naked Attraction to find out how Mofe, a hot & sexy Café owner tempts and pursues Ronke, a feisty & sassy female District Judge.

Blurb
 ~ A dangerous attraction…is mounting ~

Replaying her hip-wriggling dance steps in his head, Mofe is on the trail of a dancer he saw in a beach club in Europe. No one seems to recall who she is, not even the beach club owner. But he has her picture on his phone. When he walks into the city’s courtroom and sets eyes on the female District Judge presiding over his brother’s case, he knows he has found the elusive dancer. Whether or not his brother receives a jail sentence is in her hands.

Caring for her little sister takes up most of Ronke’s free time, but she knows how to juggle work with having a good time abroad dancing on bar tables. The moment Ronke locks gaze with the dark, gorgeous man with rippling muscles and tattooed arms, a dangerous attraction sizzles inside her. With no plans to forgo her current no-strings secret affair, she disappears without a trace, hoping never to see the stranger again. But when he walks into her courtroom, her stomach walls tighten and she can barely breathe.

Can Mofe convince a woman who holds the key to his brother’s future to date him? And will Ronke deny her attraction to protect her reputation?

Teaser

     “The question is why would a magistrate judge be spotted dancing on a bar table in nothing but a bra and thong in one of Europe’s beach clubs? And then appear serious on Monday morning in a London courtroom wearing a wig and black gown?” While he waited for her answer, he took a passing look around her chambers.

Thick, leather-bound books graced wooden shelves on every side, but the room was immaculate and clean. Grey carpets complimented the beige upper walls.

The gold and black name plaque on the desk indicated her name was District Judge Ronke Oni.

“What I do with my time is none of your business,” Ronke snapped as she swivelled around. But a sly grin wired her full lips as she got up on her feet.

Gone was the dark gown. And so was the funny wig. Now, her silky white ruffled top fell wide open, enough for him to see the swell of her cleavage.

Peeling his eyes away from her chest was not easy, but he tried. With the black skirt suit plastered around her body so tight, she looked like a bomb waiting to explode.

Electric currents flashed through his body and he laughed to quench the upsurge.

Up close, she looked a little older than he’d thought, still, she was a raving beauty.

“And what was it you wanted from the dancer?” Ronke asked with her arms folded beneath her busts, pushing her breasts further out of her top.

And for a fleeting second, he wondered if she wedged her full breasts with a lacy bra.


“Are you kidding me, Ma’am? You’re not going to deny the fact you’re an erotic dancer over the weekend and a learned woman during the week?”

With her butt perched against her curved walnut desk and her legs crossed at the ankle, she looked like a sexy model about to strip off her clothes for the camera.

And as long as he was the photographer, they would have an album of perfect shots.

“Since you took the trouble to trace me down here...” she started.

Book Title: Enticed Forever ~ A Bad Boy Romance



Author: Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
Genre: Romance/Contemporary/Interracial/Multicultural
No of Pages: 332
ISBN: 978-1542402040 (Paperback)

Quote from Enticed Forever

I can’t move on. She has everything I never knew I wanted in a woman. – Theo Galanos

 Blurb

~ An Attraction…so Irresistible ~

Millionaire bad boy, Theo Galanos has two things worked out. Women want anything money can buy. And he has no problems keeping them sweet as long as his heart is not involved. But when he hits a car and sends it spinning off the road, he meets Aize, an attractive woman in a figure-hugging dress who wants nothing he has to offer. Nothing prepares him for the body-popping tension which grips his chest and nearly sweeps him off his feet.

Aize must find the President of Galanos Holdings, get him to approve the all-important contract if she must secure the promotion she wants. But the mysterious man, rumoured to be Hampshire’s bad boy is hard to catch. When her car is bumped off the road and she opens her eyes on a hospital bed, the exotic-speaking and muscular man staring down at her sends shockwaves through her cleavage.

Faced with the sexy man who only gives a woman what money can buy, Aize is torn between giving up on her promotion and allowing her heart sway her head. Will Theo let go of his selfish desire?

Teaser

 Aize raised her eyebrows at the insane assumption she would even consider going anywhere with Theo – a man she had just met.

‘You will be in good hands,’ the doctor carried on. ‘Theo has assured me he will drive you home and make sure you follow my advice. I understand your car is quite a wreck at the moment.’ Doctor Garrick emphasized the word, wreck as if she needed a reminder. At least she was not dead, a damaged car could be replaced.

Narrowing her eyes at Theo, Aize whispered, ‘Are you a doctor or a nurse? And why do you think I’ll go anywhere with you? I could always take a taxi.’ But the idea of getting into a taxi in her condition made her want to puke.

Shaking his head with his brow furrowed, Theo spoke gently in her ear. ‘Although I’m neither a doctor nor a nurse, there’s nothing a week’s rest, good food and tender loving care can’t put right in your situation. I will look after you if you’ll allow me.’

Theo’s heated breath blew her skin hot and her body trembled. Not to mention his vibrating voice in her ear. Pressing her lips to keep from moaning out loud, Aize nodded. There was no point exchanging words with this man, he just did not give up.

‘Okay, you win,’ she conceded just to get Theo off her back.

Her self-imposed caregiver for the next week stretched to his full height and shook hands with Doctor Garrick. ‘Thank you, Doc for all your help.’

Theo’s grin, which was not even aimed at her, left a honey feeling inside her stomach.

As soon as Doctor Garrick left the room, silence took control, heightening the slowly building tension between Theo and Aize.

To ease the edgy moment, she looked up at him, and he winked at her with a cute grin on his lips. Again, she lowered her lashes, but not before a small chuckle raced out of her mouth.

One would think they were flirting, but Aize was doing no such thing. At least that was what she believed.

Surprising support!

Yesterday I got the surprise of my life. New York Times Bestselling author and the undisputed queen of African-American historical romance Beverly Jenkins, posted a promo for Born To Be Wild on her Facebook group page!

Something like this is rare and it means a lot to a little-known author like me. Ms. Bev, as she is affectionately called by her readers, has thousands of followers on Facebook, and a nod from her carries a lot of weight with readers.


If you've never read anything by the amazing Beverly Jenkins check out her extensive historical and contemporary novels here.

I've read everything Ms. Bev has written, and needless to say, I am so thankful for her support. My sales numbers had a significant spike overnight.  Yesterday was a good day...
