Professional Writer ♦ Amateur Swashbuckler

Prose and Procrastination

Helen Newcastle wanted a promotion, not romance. Given the chance to leap from publicist to editor comes with a catch, she needs to convince adventure-author, Lamont Grant, to finish his next book. Content with his past success, adventures today are Lamont’s only priority. When on tour together to promote his past books, Helen must interest Lamont in writing again, while managing her growing interest in him.

Stopping in Denver, Omaha, Nashville and Pittsburg, this city hopping romance takes both characters and readers on a unforgettable journey. Prose and Procrastination sets the ambitions of work and heart against one another, asking what is happily ever after?

Praise for the Author

“Terrance Layhew is a great writer and I enjoyed his reflections about life, which are sprinkled throughout the narrative, making the story more resonant for readers and creating a context where characters evolve.” – The Book Commentary

“The character development deserves acclaim. Layhew wears a hat for each person who takes center stage. The characters are unique and elicit a variety of emotions, such as disdain, admiration, and pity.” –
