Husband Wanted $2.99 Ebook on Amazon.com
Millionaire Grace Purdue never understood why her three beautiful, intelligent granddaughters didn’t have a husband. Every woman needs a good man by her side, especially a woman of means. So, when the publishing empire heiress died she made sure that her granddaughters wouldn’t stay single. In order for them to get their inheritance, they must each fall in love and get married in nine months. Easy….right?
Sheila, Leslie and Regina are wondering if their grandmother took too much medication when she wrote her will. If thousands of women across the globe are having a hard time finding true love and a husband, what made their grandmother think that they could in less than a year? But with a total of $45 million at stake, they are determined to shed their singleness or die trying. Little do they know that love, romance, deceit and deception run deep because money can get you what you want and a whole lot of what you don’t. Enjoy this entertaining tale as the Purdue women each take a different path that they hope will lead to meeting the love of their lives at the altar.
My First Compilation: Storealities
How was she able to recognize the gifts in everyone else but not acknowledge her own? Why did she give compliments and encourage others but could not affirm herself? This woman was a real contradiction. This woman was me. –

Storealities: A Collection of Stories by Empowering Women to Empower Women

This Saturday in Memphis, TN I will be a part of the official book launch for the book “Storealities” by Roquita Coleman-Williams. It features stories by 22 women, myself included. Roquita, one of the few black female executives in the railroad industry (She actually has her conductor’s license!!) is no stranger to hard work and breaking glass ceilings. She created this book to give a voice to everyday woman. We each tell a story about a moment in our lives that helped define us. I have read the book and I must say that I truly enjoyed each testimony by these amazing women from all walks of life. I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful endeavor. It’s not easy taking off the mask and allowing others to see our flaws but if it helps someone, it’s more than worth it.
Please attend the book signing if you can. It’s currently only available in paperback. Unfortunately, it is SOLD OUT on Amazon for the time being.
This past weekend, several of the featured authors did a podcast to discuss the book. Take a look. The interview starts around the 8:33 mark.
I pray that you accomplish all your dreams. Be blessed!
Me showcasing Literary Jewels at a local vending event
Summer is almost here and Literary Jewels has several stops. My goal is to schedule a vending opportunity every weekend unless I am on vacation. For those who don’t know, Literary Jewels is a subset of my company I created back in October of 2017 when I became a Paparazzi Jewelry consultant. It’s the place were books and jewelry meet and allows me to showcase my books along with some lovely pieces of jewelry. I must say that so for the endeavor is going quite well.
Here’s a video I did this week to showcase some pieces and books I will be selling during the Splashtastic Pool Party this weekend at Dean of Fashion Glamtique. It is at 5963 Summer Ave. from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Proceeds from the jewelry sales are used to fund the scholarship I created in memory of my mother, Lillie Marshall. Each year, I want to use it to assist a young man or woman who is pursuing a college scholarship in spight of challenging circumstances. We are actually accepting applications now! Feel free to visit my memorial site to learn about the scholarship and the qualifications for acquiring the scholarship, www.lilliesdaughter.com.
If you’re in the Memphis area, come see me. If not, check out my schedule to see if I’m coming to a city near you. I hope to add several more dates. So, if there’s an event you believe I should be a part of, feel free to invite me.
Also, if you would like to buy some jewelry, visit my online store at https://paparazziaccessories.com/121940/ and get whatever tickles your fancy.
Have a fantastic weekend!!!

Earlier this year, I started doing something called Good Woman Gatherings. I became bored with traditional book signings and decided to make them more fun! It’s an afternoon or evening of fun and games centered around my latest book Husband Wanted. We have food, great games, some wine and lots of laughs. I’ve done three of them now in Little Rock, Arkansas; Memphis, TN; and Nashville, TN. I’m proud to say that each one had been a hit. I’ve gotten great feedback and the ladies seem to have a good time. If you would like to bring a Good Woman Gathering to your book store, organization or home please contact me. I’d be happy to come. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 901.286.JAE1.
I truly have enjoyed fellowshipping with great women and sharing my efforts with them. Here are a few pictures from previous ones. I’d like to saying thank you to the Ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. for always showing up and showing out!
There were fun times in Little Rock!

Some of you may know that I have been working on a novella with fellow author Mario D. King. Well, “Where Do We Go From Here” is now available on Amazon.com for only .99.
Last year, a startling statistic was released that 72% of African American babies were born to unwed mothers. Mario and I wondered what would become of those babies? What type of environment were they conceived in and what type of environment would they be raised in? How can we tell their story? What evolved was a lustfully exciting tale that examines what can happen when two people intertwine their lives and their bodies with no intention of creating a future together. This novella is entertaining encouragement to make wise decisions in our relationships/interactions because sometimes our actions have life-altering consequences. I must warn you that this is not one of my usual Christian offerings but it still has an inspirational message we felt must be told. Read more about it here.
Within 24 hours of the book being released, we received out first review from fellow author Derrick L. Randall.
I could not and desired not stop reading until I finished. An absolutely rich and engaging read, Where Do We Go From Here, is dynamically relatable. It is a profound tale of the importance of individual, relationship, and cultural choices. It embodies twists and turns right out of the reader’s personal and unspoken experiences.
As a writer, I am inspired to write. As a reader, I am excitedly awaiting the story to continue. As a self-proclaimed 2k15 “Hippie”, I am sho’nuff groovy now. It was exactly what I needed.
Salute…Jae Henderson and Mario D. King
We’d love for you to read it and tell us what you think. Download the book here. Be sure to like our Facebook page. We are going to do some great giveaways there in the near future.
BONUS: Read the first three chapters!
