The holidays are here…and with them come holiday parties, shopping, cooking and lots and lots of eating. I’m not immune to the holidays and indulge in my share of all of the above.
But I’ve also been promoting my 20th book: Can’t Get Enough online and on TV. I appeared on WESH CW18 on November 30th advising of romantic Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas. How? By using your five (5) senses: sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. Check out the video clip: https://youtu.be/a-Hgcdvlqn0.
I’ve secured another television interview on my local FOX station for tomorrow. Live stream it on WOFL-FOX 35 News Orlando, Thursday, December 10th at 9:45 a.m. If you’re not following me on social media, check me out:

I will be taking a short break from writing to head to Puerto Vallarta for a mini vacation with my sisters. Be sure to be on the lookout for pictures and posts from Mexico. As you know, I love adventure sports, so I’m sure to try out some hair-brained activity while abroad.
When I get back, I’ll be hard at work on my next two (2) books. First up, a new series for Harlequin’s Kimani Romance line on the Knight Brothers. The first book covers Lucius Knight’s story and will debut January 2017. And yes, I loved the name after hearing it on EMPIRE. Here’s a snippet of my yet untitled book:
Sexy entrepreneur Lucius Knight is considered charming to some and ruthless to others in his hometown of Long Beach, California. He’s had to be considering he was denied his birthright. He grew up with his grandmother and never knew his father, but that all changes when his true identity is publicly revealed. While battling for legitimacy, Lucius sets his sights 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? Find out 2017.
Simultaneously, I’m working on my own eBook: Unchained Hearts, a trilogy sequel to my beloved Hart Series. If you recall last year, you, the fans named the characters of each heroine: London, Bree and Jada Hart. Unchained Hearts will start the Hart Sisters trilogy off with plus-sized London Hart’s struggle to find love the with army veteran Chase Tanner. Can she free of his demons and show him love is even better the second time around? Unchained Hearts will come your way in February 2016. I can’t commit that it’ll be time for Valentine’s Day, but I’m certainly going to give the ole’ college try.
As the year ends, I’m reflecting on what I accomplished in 2015. Working a day job and being a writer isn’t easy, but I published three (3) new books: Restless Hearts, Heat Wave of Desire and Can’t Get Enough as well as re-released and added new scenes for my 3rd book: Never Say Never.
Writing has always been my first love and will continue to be in 2016. I will finish up the Hart Sisters trilogy with Bree and Jada Hart’s stories, but I’ve also committed to new stories with Harlequin’s Kimani Romance line, so I’ll be working on Maximus Xavier Knight’s story for the Knight Brothers series as well as some new Kimani Hotties’ stories.
Whew! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the stories from me this year and wait with baited breath for the next ones.
Wishing you and your family a happy and safe holiday!
All the Best,
Yahrah St. John
