#WriterWednesday - Higher Love

Title: Higher Love
Genre: African American Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 26, 2016


Popular travel blogger, Greer Kennedy, is living the good life with a successful career and equally as successful fiancé until one phone call from a friend opens her eyes to the truth of her relationship.

Tall, handsome, and successful in his own right, Derek Hill is dealing with some serious relationship problems as well.

When their paths cross, they mutually, but unofficially, decide to share a night—or three or four—of anonymous pleasure. Will they end up experiencing much more than either of them bargained for?


“This truly is a great view,” I said, standing before a wall of windows in Derek’s office.

“It’s even more impressive when the office is dark. May I?”


He turned the bright overhead lights off, causing the lights from neighboring buildings and the street below to almost glow. I stared at the view for a moment before turning my attention back to his luxurious office space. “So this is where you do all your work?”

He nodded. He was standing by his desk with his hands in the pockets of his slacks, his eyes on me. “Yes, it is. Sometimes I sleep here. The couch is rather comfortable.”

“You’re a workaholic?” I asked as I moved toward the desk, fondled the nameplate sitting on it.

“I try to balance it out with my fair share of pleasure.”

“Like Virginia?”

“Oh, that was much more than pleasure. Much, much more.” He walked around the desk and stood next to me. “That was ecstasy.”

I backed away from him a bit. “Really?”

“Yes, don’t you agree?”


“I wish I could experience that again.”

I lifted a brow. “Do you?”

“You have no idea how badly I do.”

Date Published:  March 2016

Mo Chridhe Gu Bràth. My heart forever.

Ancient words, a powerful legend, a timeless love…

Lily Chastain has lost everything—her family, her inheritance, and her fiancé.  Desperate to escape her pain, she heads for a remote castle in Scotland, but is trapped by a violent storm along the way. Injured and alone, she is drawn by a lighted cottage in the mist.  What she finds there will change her life forever.

Attacked by a vicious rival and betrayed by someone from his own clan, Bram Macgillivray finds himself alone and on the run.  His father is dead, his holding all but destroyed.  Wanting vengeance, he seeks out the help of his cousins, but finds instead a beautiful woman who calls to his heart.

After losing herself in an unexpected and wonderful night of sensuality, Lily wakes to find Bram gone.  But even more disturbing, when she leaves the sanctuary of the cottage, she finds that it has disappeared as well.

Separated by over five hundred years, yet tied together through a magic stronger than the bonds of time and place, Lily and Bram fight to find each other again.  And as Lily uncovers the secrets of the past, she must race to find a way back to save the only man she’s ever truly loved.


Scotland – 1468

There was danger.  Bram could feel it all around him. Fire raced up the wooden steps that lead up to the door leading into the tower.   And he could see more flames thrusting out of the windows, black smoke spiraling into the night sky.  Throwing his plaid over his face, he ran up the steps, but was stopped by one of the tower’s guards.

The man raised his claymore, his eyes narrowed as the deadly blade began its descent.  Bram pivoted, and then swung his own weapon, confused as to where he was and why he was fighting.  The man fell, only to be replaced by another.  Bram called to him, some part of him recognizing a face that still seemed a stranger, but this man, too, seemed intent only on stopping him.

His mind argued that nothing made sense, even as his heart screamed that he must get inside.  If he did not then that which was most precious to him would be lost.  He knew this as surely as he drew breath.

With a twist and a parry he drew the man off, and then made quick work of him, dashing through the opening of the tower, down the hallway and into the great hall.  A place meant for comfort it offered only danger now.  It too was full of flame, and lined with enemies. 

Again the thought brought him up short.  But there was no time to try and understand.  Fear pushed him forward.  He surged into the fray, moving toward the stairway at the far end of the room.  It gave access to the chambers above and it was there he knew he would find her.

His brain recoiled.  Find who?  But his heart urged him forward, and he fought his way to the bottom of the steps, then ran up them, taking them two at a time, knowing the other swordsmen were fast on his heels. 

At the top he froze for a moment, the thick smoke disorienting him.  The fire was much worse here.  Pushing forward, he breathed through the heavy wool of his plaid, keeping sword at the ready.  The first chamber was empty.  As was the solar and the chamber beyond it.  But then from down the narrow hallway he heard a cry.

Heart thundering in his ears, he ran through the flames and smoke.  A timber fell, glancing off of his shoulder, and he hardly felt it, the need to find her overriding everything else.

He called for her, his voice swallowed by the raging fire.  Another timber fell, and a wall collapsed.  He jumped across a gaping hole in the floor, landing hard, but still moving.   The doorway ahead was edged in flames, the smoke and fire roiling like some kind of evil spirit. 

Ignoring the danger, he sprinted forward, through the opening, again calling her name.

And then, through the shimmering heat, he saw her, tied to the bedframe, her long hair unbound, her green eyes wide with fear. 

“Go back,” she screamed.

But he pushed onward, stumbling as still more of the burning tower fell.  “I’ll no’ leave you.”   His words were whipped away by the inferno surrounding them.  But he knew that she had heard him.

There were only a few feet between them now.  There was bruising on her face, and a trickle of blood at the corner of her beautiful mouth, and he swore there would be hell to pay.

But first, he had to free her.

He reached out a hand, but as he did so, the ceiling above him crashed to the ground.  One moment he was looking into her eyes—and the next, she was gone.

Back From Broken Virtual #Book Tour

Write Now Literary is pleased to announce Back From Broken by Rosheka Henry Virtual book Tour January 9-20, 2017.
Book Release Date: June 2016
Genre: Religious/Self Help


In this 21st century you cannot be an author and not have social networks that you are apart of. While you do not have to have all of them, as there are way to many for you as an author to be on, but you need to select at least 3 or 4 to participate on a consistent basis. There are many benefits to being on social networks and participating on them. Here are just a few reasons that I believe you should use the social media platform to network and also to brand yourself as an author.

  • 1.      Social Media/the Internet is the great equalizer. Not to many years ago if you wanted to be an author you had to write a book, get an agent and hope that a Major Publishing Company liked your story and picked you up. In this 21st century those days are long gone. As an author, you have the ability to Publish your own work and not wait for a Publishing Company to pick your story up, you can do it on your own with your own team.

  • 2.      Social Media allows you to interact with your audience directly. You can talk with your fans and develop a more personal relationship with them with social media. They do not have to wait until you have a book signing in order to interact with you.

  • 3.      Social Media allows you to have a global audience and not just be tied to people in your geographical location or nationally, you can sell books right on social media as well.

  • 4.     With social media you get to promote, brand and sell all in one place to millions of people. Social media also allows you to join groups and get exposure that you would not get other wise.

  • Social Media has grown in just the past few years and the technology of it is changing each and everyday. If you are not using social media as an author then you are not serious about being an author. You have to understand that social media is FREE marketing and advertising, for the most part and using it is key to you being a successful author!!!
