Overview

In the trilogy's previous entry, jealousy ignited long-simmering tensions between Promise, Squeeze, and Show, leading to an all-out gang war. Streets Of New York Volume 3 finds the neighborhood reeling from the pain of losing a son and brother to gang violence, yet still, the mayhem continues. The lives of best friends hang in the balance. Regrets abound, but suspicions linger. Bonds are tested and covers blown. Those not from the streets must watch their backs or risk the wrath of street justice. As the novel races to a dramatic close, the fate of an entire family is up in the air. Coauthored by hip-hop lit heavyweights Erick Gray, Mark Anthony, and Anthony Whyte, and with a powerful foreword by Treasure Blue, the "Uncle of Urban Lit," Streets of New York Volume 3 is a satisfying finale to an action-packed, unforgettable saga.

Erick S Gray-

Some of the greatest things invented happened so by accident and so was Erick Gray's writing career. An avid reader and closet writer for years, Gray got his start in this genre when he handed his first manuscript to Carl Weber, a book store owner at the time. Carl passed his work on and soon after Erick became a published author. That was a decade ago and Erick Gray continues to hold his place as a writer to be contended with in the urban fiction genre. With the release of his first novel, Booty Call, Erick showed what a well-crafted story, developed characters and good editing was all about. Since then Erick has released six other novels including a sequel to his critically acclaimed Booty Call.

Mark Anthony:

During the late 90's—at a time when there were only two (2) other publicly known gritty urban tales available on the market—when the traditional and major publishers were ignoring this budding genre of Street Fiction, Trendsettaz Entertainment was formed and Mark hit the streets with his self-published book entitled, Urban Massacre, which would later be changed to Paper Chasers. Though the production of these books was not quality and they were falling apart, he managed to successfully sell it to the public. Having survived the growing pains of the publishing industry, he would go on to build QBoro Books, which now manages over 30 authors and is one of the top publishers of urban fiction today. Later he would merge with Urban Books—who has major distribution through Kensington, a deal that separates him from all other urban book publishing companies—as well as ink deals with G-Unit Books. And to add to his long resume of success in this industry he is looking to produce films in the near future.
