Overview

Which of us hasn’t daydreamed about what we’d do if we won the lottery? A Dollar And A Dream brings those fantasies to hilarious, heartbreaking life in three stories by #1 national bestselling author Carl Weber and La Jill Hunt, Essence bestselling author Angel Hunter, and Cushcity.com bestselling author Dwayne S. Joseph.

In "Easy Street," Carl Weber and La Jill Hunt deliver a drama-filled world of money, greed, and lies. When Paul, a wannabe player, is sent out by his neighbors to buy lottery tickets, his world is turned upside-down - and so are the lives of unsuspecting friends who may not only lose the winning tickets, but also their homes...

"Ghetto Fabulous" is the story of a single mother with three kids from three different daddies. Money is what she needs, yet when she wins big, she’s left wondering what to do. Friends and family she never knew she had are suddenly coming out of the woodwork. But where were they when she needed help?

With one person designated to purchase tickets for the $180 million jackpot, six co-workers lives will be changed forever as each of them learns just how strong the pull of money can be. “One Night, Six Dreams” is a wild, shocking tale of just how far a person might go to have it all...

Join these unforgettable characters as they learn exactly what money can and can’t buy in three fabulous, fast-paced stories of getting rich - and staying real.

    Carl Weber & Dewayne S Joseph stories were good! Who told Angel Hunter she could write? Her story was terrible. La Jill Hunt rode Carl Weber's coat tail so I counld not tell if she was good or not. Carl Weber is great; as well as, Dwayne S Joseph.......I am going to look more into Mr Joseph books....I read all of Mr Weber's books. Angel Hunter NOOOOO way.

    I have read Carl Webers books, and from that I can say... what seems to be all of the hype.. This book is not what I expected at all.. The stories were kind of weak and lame .. If you have read other books by this author then you will understand

    I TOOK A CHANCE. YOU SHOULD TOO

    Carl Weber I knew, but the other authors were a long shot. I'm so glad I purchased this book. I was drawn in by all the stories but the story by Dwayne Joseph had me caught up. I could see this one becoming a movie. These new voices introduced by Carl Weber have been added to my MUST READ LIST OF AUTHORS.

    Wild

    These stories all had the same basic theme--greed just isn't worth it. All of the characters were well crafted, the dialogue was fresh, and there was humor left and right. The first story about the neighbors was just funny, the second was inspiring but seemed really unrealistic (although the characters were cool), but the third one was so wild that it seemed very realistic. The last one stood out way for than the other two just because it had a beginning, middle, and an end whereas the first two seemed rushed to get to the end. I enjoyed this book.

    Off the meter

    A Dollar And A Dream was off the meter! Carl, the man, has once again delivered a must-read story, along with La Jill Hunt, whose book Drama Queen I will be buying! Angel Hunter's story was cool. Dwayne Joseph's story was so intense it was crazy! This is one of the best anthologies I've read in a while!
