1001 Ghetto-Fabulous Nights

After seeing the wildly popular success of Black Authors like Terry McMillian, E. Lynn Harris, Omar Tyree, T. Ansa and Benilda Little, I have decided that my ticket to publication is an entry into the Sister-Friend Genre of fiction.

I present to you my novel proposal:

TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT
a novel by C. "Larry" Gidney.

Sassy Den'ica Jones wants to ticket out of the Anacostia way of life. She's been gifted with a wonderful voice, both rapping and singing. Delmar, an unscruplous businessman with connections in the Music Industry, finds in Den'ica a perfect vehicle to her success.

Two years later, Den'ica is no more. She's become the street-smart Juicy Bootay. She's the hottest rap act in Da Biz. She has the nastiest mouth this side of L'il Kim and Millie Jackson.

Juicy has anything she could possibly want -- money, men, cars, gold records, and a budding movie career (in BAPS 2: Da Sequel). She also has share of brushes with the dark side of Da Biz: drugs, triflin' hangers on, and grueling schedules. A near-fatal mishap lands Juicy in the hospital, where she meets the God-fearing, Do-Right Brotha D.Wayne, causing a change of heart...and a change of direction...

TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT is the bold new novel by C. "Larry" Gidney, author of NO, YOU DIDN'T! and YOU AIN'T ALL DAT. It's the exploration of a woman's heart, an expose of the music business, and the role of God in life.

Who will win? Den'ica or Juicy? Will she become a hoochie mamma or a holy roller?

Life is not all about the Benjamins.
