This is what happens when our options become limited . . .
Omar Tyree, a New York Times and Essence magazine bestseller, an NAACP
Image Award and Phyllis Wheatley Literary Prize winner, and the originator of
contemporary “urban classic” novels that have spawned a national wave of
“urban/street literature,” hits home again with Corrupted, a timely and
innovative serial ebook.
In an era where hundreds of aspiring writers play an anxious game of
musical chairs to entice a shrinking group of New-York-based book editors to buy
their freshly printed manuscripts and grant their dreams of becoming
nationally published authors, Vincent Biddle reigns supreme.
Coined the man with the “golden eye”, in the past decade, Vincent, a
native Bronze, New Yorker, has hand-picked, edited and positioned more than a
dozen bestselling books from his stable of authors, while generating more than
a hundred million dollars in revenue for the Williams & Klein Publishing
Vincent can’t miss and can do wrong, as he rises to a powerful senior
editor position with the publisher. But as he rises, so does his ego, creating a
reckless and eccentric craving for personal and professional
Vincent asks himself, “What will these writers all do to become bestsellers
and remain in the public limelight?”
With a tight circle of volatile authors in his midst, their every weakness
soon becomes bait to be used against them, while their power-dunk editor
assumes a position of absolute authority. And things fall apart around them.
Corrupted, a serial ebook of aspirations, fame, fortune, sex, shame and
scandal, as Omar Tyree uncovers the dark, passionate and sinister side of the
American publishing industry. Rated R.
