UPCOMING BOOK RELEASE - "SOAR* Into Your Destiny" debuts mid September and will be available through Amazon, Barnes&Noble, and directly from Lulu Publishing.

What is destiny? I know that I have a destiny, how do I begin to fulfill it? Rudelle Thomas answers these and other questions in her sophomore project. Before you can begin living your life's purpose there are three simple requirements that must be met. The first thing you must do if you ever want to fulfill your Divine Destiny is – DECIDE that you want to, the second thing you must do is BELIEVE that you can, and the third thing you must do is CHOOSE to take the necessary steps to get to it!

Using a combination of divine inspiration, education, and life lessons, Rudelle teaches:

10 necessary positive mental patterns that will help you achieve success in every area

How to overcome the pain of your past, doubts, fears, and the negative words that have been spoken over your life, to leave a life of mediocrity and soar into your Divine Destiny

Many ideas that will change your current mindset from an “I can’t” mentality to an “I know I can” mentality

"We can change our lives through the power of choice and faith. By choosing what we want to come into our lives, we are changing our mind about our current reality. In other words, our choices impact our destiny!"

LaShaunda said...

Hi, I’m LaShaunda, I’m the publisher/editor of Shades of Romance Magazine or SORMAG as I call it. We been online since 2000 and will be celebrating seven years next month.

Our mission is to promote authors and we’ve had great fun doing that.

We offer promotion packages that fit every author’s budget –

We jumped into the online book tours this summer because so many people were asking me to do tours and I didn’t have the space on SORMAG, so I created a new blog – SORMAG Online Book Tours. I like it because it gives me the opportunity to promote all books not just multi-cultural ones.

For a fee I can set you up an online tour or if you have your on tour set up, we can be a place to visit.

I believe in promoting authors, so if there is anything I can do, let me know.

Hello, I am a male romance novelist, Devon Vaughn Archer.

As the first male to write solo for Arabesque, my next romance, CHRISTMAS HEAT, will be out this coming holiday season and promises to be a heartwarming, nostalgic journey fill with love and passion.

CHRISTMAS HEAT by Devon Vaughn Archer
Kimani Romance, December 2007
ISBN: 0373860471

A season of miracles ... and second chances ...

Audrey Lamour was a successful artist and devoted mother, forever indebted to the heroic fireman who pulled her from a blaze twenty-five years ago on Christmas Day. She honored him by painting his portrait--never dreaming her picture would become a lifeline to love...

Conrad Pearson was driven to meet the woman whose emotional painting of his father seared his soul, even if it meant returning home to the Pacific Northwest, and painful memories. But Audrey's beauty, grace, and unforgettable kiss ignited the kind of sensual fire that made a man glad to be alive. Now he was ready to face all the ghosts of Christmas past to keep this angel in his arms forever.

This is not your average romance novel! Cishawn Simpson is fiercely independent and such a piece a work it's no wonder she doesn't have a man. Her bravado is a screen, shielding a fragile heart whose owner is its worst enemy. Tonzell Jones is the noble rescuer, wanting to rescue Cishawn from herself. Can these two withstand being burned by the scorching heat between them?

EXCITING NEWS! My new novella, FOR LOVE OR MONEY, has just been released by The Wild Rose Press.

Set in the beautiful city of Bend, Oregon, this is a contemporary story of suspense and intrigue. Claire Ballard's father has left her a family heirloom, a Celtic brooch that was lost five centuries ago. But a crime family in Scotland
claim it really belongs to them and they'll do whatever it takes to get it back.

Liam Coine has his own agenda, part of which is to claim Claire as his own. Getting the brooch would be an added bonus. Their families' feud makes for a fiery connection between them, but their attraction to each other fuels the flame
even more. Will the brooch be responsible for getting Claire killed by the same family of criminals who murdered her father? Or will it reunite her with her
childhood crush?

short book and only available as an ebook. At just 60 pages, the entire
story can be read in one sitting! And it can be yours for just $3.00. Please visit my publisher to download your copy today:
