Description
In the 10th anniversary of A Project Chick’s original release, Nikki Turner, the New York Times Bestselling author, will take readers back to where it all began. This is A Project Chick exactly as it was written and edited 10 years ago, just as authentic and original but in digital form for the very first time. Tressa is a fly girl accustomed to the lavish lifestyle that her possessive and deranged baby daddy, Lucky, has provided for her. In order to keep up her high standards of living, time and again she tolerates his unforgivable actions. It’s not until he pulls off the ultimate stunt that she realizes no mink coat, car, house or any amount of money is worth sacrificing her peace of mind. Without a second thought, Tressa leaves everything behind - with the exception of her street savvy. She sets out to make a life of her own, one filled with hard times and even harder luck. Tressa soon finds herself making the transition from public figure to public assistance. Every day of her life seems like one drama-filled chapter after another. From the baby daddy drama, the backstabbing friends, to the various unforgettable men she sorts through and disposes of. There will be times when she has to struggle and scramble just to make ends meet, and other times when she will stand tall and hold her own. In this captivating tale, Tressa's voyage will expose readers to the brutally honest life of a struggling single mother that has yet to be documented.
About the author
After Nikki Turner read The Coldest Winter Ever by Sistah Souljah she was dismayed that there weren't other books like it. "I wanted to write the kinds of books I wanted to read," said the New York Times bestselling author, whose 2002 debut novel, A Hustler's Wife, would go on to sell more than a few 100,000 copies. While Nikki Turner's first two novels were published by a small publishing house in the Midwest, in 2004 she signed a 2-book deal with One World, an imprint of Ballantine Books, which is part of The Random House Publishing Group. After publishing the first book under that deal, The Glamorous Life in 2005 as well as a short story collection edited by Nikki, Street Chronicles: Tales from da Hood, One World quickly signed Nikki up for three more Nikki Turner Original novels and negotiated a deal with her for her own book line, Nikki Turner Presents. "I want to give new authors the same kind of opportunity I was given," said Nikki. "I want to produce authors who will be household names."
