I was given strict instructions on how to present the protagonist. Besides being extraordinarilybeautiful, she had to be both a drug addict and the ultimate bitch everyone loathed who ends up losing everything. This did not sound to me like a salablebook but I was in awe of these powerful people and so obeyed.Titled Winners and Losers, it was auctioned with five major houses bidding, won by Penguin, and made the LA Times bestseller list its first week in print.Mace Neufeld, Hollywoods most prominent producer, invited me to lunch and offered me a position with his production company.

I often wonder what mylife would have been had I accepted. My book was still on the LA Times bestseller list a second week with every bookstore in Los Angeles sold out of copiesand begging Penguin to send more. For reasons Ill never understand, Penguin never sent out a single copy and the book died.When a writer recently emailed me shed just read it, I started to flip through an old copy I had and was horrified by the bilge Id written, contacted Penguinand got the rights back, then dug into the major task of completely rewriting it.Only novel to prominently feature a black man as the guiding support for the beautiful main character Erin Connolly as she fights Hollywood to produceOscar winning films.
