About The Book
his_until_sunrise_cover2
After learning her boss has scheduled a mandatory team-building excursion, financial planner Nona Rogers panics. What does she know about camping? Nada. Zilch. Heck, she doesn’t even like picnics. And the thought of sleeping amid bugs and wild animals knots her stomach.

No way can she risk looking like an idiot in front of her colleagues. Taking proactive measures, she acquires the services of a guide to give her a crash-course in camping. Seven days living off the land. How hard could it be? Nona swallows those words when she meets the sexy titan tasked with leading her into the wild. Getting mauled by a bear quickly becomes the least of her worries.

Mason Tinsdale’s first love has always been oil rigging. But a horrible accident has him doubting the job—more importantly, himself. Seven days in the Indigo Falls wilderness is just what he needs to sort out his thoughts. Then he meets Nona Rogers. He’s convinced the gorgeous woman is going to be far more trouble than she’s worth. And he’s right. However, there’s something about the feisty vixen that makes her irresistible.
Two guarded hearts. Seven days alone. An attraction that can’t be denied.

Endeavors drenched in blood and marked with bone have become his trademark in spite of his desire to be more-to be better. When he meets troubleshooter, Kamari Grade that desire receives the spark it’s been waiting on. It’s the spark that motivates Huron to once again strive to rise above his circumstances and at last become the better man he wants to be. Change however, has its consequences...and its dangers. Many of Huron’s associates aren’t so supportive of his new found...desires. They are especially wary of his new found love. Kamari is a recognizable force in her field-one that keeps her too enmeshed in the circles of law enforcement that Huron’s associates strive to avoid. Huron knows that Kam doesn’t care who he was, only who he is- the man she loves. Still, he won’t allow that to blind him to what has to be done-the steps that must be taken to keep the woman he loves from becoming a casualty in a war between new enemies.

Whats Under Your Rug by Esther Renee' Daniels Wright Virtual Book Tour #NONFICTION #NEWRELEASE

About The Author


Bestselling Author | Speaker | Empowerment Coach | Minister

Esther Renee' Daniels Wright, is a native of Beaumont, Texas and resides in Houston, Texas. An Associate minister at The Fountain of Praise, under the leadership of Senior Pastor Remus Wright and Co-Pastor Mia Wright.

The founder of Titus Works, Ministries, a vision I believe was downloaded specifically to me from God. This ministry has been created to spread the word freely to ages 25 and up. Titus based on the Word of God in Titus chapter 2, teaches us that the old shall be there to guide the young into a better life with Christ. This ministry strives to do this in a unique way. Through telephone conferences with powerful speakers and topics is keeping it real with people and God.

I have been blessed to counsel, motivate, inspire and encourage others that they too can be a living testimony. With all of that said the most important thing she would like for you to know about her, is she loves God with all of her heart and wants nothing more than for God to be pleased with everything she does.

Esther, Tell us about your book?

Have you been harboring unforgiveness, bitterness, and feelings of self-defeat? Is the guilt of your past hindering your plans for the future? Are you ready to overcome your hidden issues and walk victoriously and unashamed? This inspirational and effective book is a great resource for anyone ready to take their relationship with God to the next level. Through God’s Word. This book offers encouragement and hope for healing and freedom. This heartfelt work offers steps to assist in the journey through love and compassion.


How did you come up with idea for this book?

I was given this assignment to write a book and I thought to myself this has to be me saying this, surely God would not be telling me to write a book. Plus what would I have to write about anyway, I am not an expert on anything, what could I possibly write that would inspire or help another human being. So, I did what most people do, I disregarded the thought of this potential book. But like any assignment that God gives me to do, it would not leave my spirit, so I began to pray about it. Seeking God’s opinion on this book, I remember praying, “okay God, if this is truly what you want me to do, then would you at least give me the subject matter of this book?” Not long after that it was revealed to me what God wanted to say to you through this book

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

In order to write this book it meant writing about some things in my life, that were unpleasant. This of course was something I didn't want to do. The thought of knowing that people would have all my stuff in their hands was a sincere challenge. But God reminded me that not only does he want to free you but he wants to free me as well.

Why do you write?

I write now because I am so clear of the fact that God wants us to be healed in every area of our lives, He wants us to know what he said through David in Psalm 147 is real, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” He wants to bless us with the freedom to experience the joy, peace and happiness that we so desperately desire to experience.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

I would love for the reader to walk away with realizing the dirt under their rug needs to be exposed and swept clean in order that those experiences are no longer an embarrassment or hindrance to their progression, but rather a testimony of God’s faithfulness in my life. Allowing God’s faithfulness to manifest an experience of true freedom by facing fears, exposing them, taking action to overcome them and learn from them. So, get ready to walk into your freedom.


Who are your favorite authors? I really enjoy reading Iyanla Vanzant

What book(s) are you reading now?

Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life by Sarah Jakes

What book(s) have most influenced your life?

The Purposed Driven Life, by Rick Warren was one of the first books I read when I got sober and it gave me the inspiration to find a path to not only just be sober, but to be sober with a purpose!

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

I would choose Iyanla Vanzant, being able to help others at a greater level with changing the behavior and thought process of others is an amazing gift. Not just a gift to have the ability to assist someone in that area, but a gift to the individual who is able to receive it.

Any advice to give to aspiring writers?

Listen to your inner voice allowing God to lead you in your writing, along with making a commitment to your writing. That book inside of you is a gift to those who God has waiting for you to complete it. Let Him use you!

How did you come up with idea for this book?

God instructed me to write this book to encourage and empower women using my life experiences and sharing them. In my life I have been through a lot of hard situations especially in relationships. In my book, I tell about some of those things, I remember being a woman that didn’t know who she was, didn’t think I was valuable or worth much at all, so I settled for what came my way. So God spoke to me to share with women and help them see themselves as I now see myself, a beautiful shining diamond!

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

As I mentioned earlier, I have been through some rough bumps in life and as I was writing this book, my mind did go back to my past, the hurt and pain that I endured all because I saw myself way differently than God saw me, so I had some moments that I pondered on and said wow! Look at all you went through!!!! But as I continued to write I know now that all that I went through was to help some women out there that was just like me. So I will never get mad at anyone in my past or feel sorry for myself, im a new woman now and what I have been through has helped me to be stronger and more confident because during those times, I built a strong relationship with God. The past is over and I’m on an empowering mission to help fellow sisters come forth. No more crying and feeling sorry for myself, I’m a beautiful and I now help women to find their shine.

Why do you write?

I love putting my thoughts on paper, as I write, I just go on and on. God speaks and I write, it’s just so peaceful. As I was writing my book, I was set at a page a day, but as I set down in front of my computer, it just flowed so I went with it. I have so much to say and writing it all out helps me and it helps others. It’s my way of getting it all out and reloading more in. The more I write the more I get!

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

After reading my book, women will discover their inner brilliance, elevate their thinking, build their self-esteem and increase their value.

Who are your favorite authors? Joyce Meyer and Creflo Dollar

What book(s) are you reading now?

I’m reading the confident woman by Joyce Meyer and overcoming fear by Creflo Dollar

What books have most influenced your life?

I have to say that battlefield of the mind by Joyce Meyer has truly influenced my life in a great way, I know now that I can control my thoughts and in doing that I can control my life. I empowered now because I know that I can cast down any thoughts that is not of God, I don’t have to receive them if it doesn’t have to line up with what God has promised me. I can think on good things and have the victory in every area of my life!

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Joyce Myer, I can relate to her in so many ways, all her book were written in such a way that its well received and every time I read a book she has written I get something great out of it. She’s my mentor!

About The Book

marriednickofnine850_1


Cassandra Whitmore is facing yet another Valentine’s Day alone. Her love life is as dry as the Sharpie pen she uses to mark an even more dreadful day on her calendar—her upcoming 30th birthday. Driven by the maddening ticking of her biological clock, Cassandra is determined to meet, fall in love with, and marry “The One” within nine months. When Cassandra accompanies her cousin to a night club, her Type-A quest to meet a man is quickly rewarded by a stranger’s velvety, baritone voice asking if he might occupy the seat next to her. He’s Nicolas Harte, whose good looks leave Cassandra speechless, but not for long. After mustering enough courage to strike up a conversation, she learns Nicolas is everything she wants in a man—smart, successful, and available. There’s only one catch: He’s “GU” (geographically undesirable). Nonetheless, Cassandra falls in love with Nicolas and makes the uncharacteristic decision to move from Los Angeles to New York to be with him. But Cassandra gets a rude awakening when she discovers there’s something rotten in the Big Apple.

About The Author
alretha_thomas224_rt_lr

Shortly after graduating from USC with a degree in journalism, Alretha soon realized her interest in her major was not heartfelt. Instead of writing news stories, she wanted to write plays and books. Several years later, her church gave her an outlet to fulfill her writing desires through their Liturgical Fine Arts Department wherein Alretha penned twelve theatre pieces—the community response was overwhelming.
This led to plays outside of the church, including Alretha’s “One, Woman Two Lives,” starring Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show), directed by four-time NAACP Image Award Best Director recipient, Denise Dowse. The production garnered rave reviews from critics and audiences.
In between plays, Alretha’s first novel, “Daughter Denied,” was launched in 2008 and in 2011, Alretha launched “Dancing Her Dreams Away.” Her third novel, “Married in the Nick of Nine,” spawned a four-book series that has been acquired by Soul Mate Publishing. “Married in the Nick of Nine,” the first book in the series was released July 2, 2014.
