Darrell King, author of street fiction

I am working with author Darrell King, typing up his manuscript and copyediting it. Mr. King writes street fiction, a genre I had never even heard of until he contacted me. The story is gritty, real, and hardcore. I must say it's definitely not for minors, but for adults, it's a very powerful read. The book I'm working on dives us into the life of Godiva, a beautiful blue-eyed blonde megastar singer, whose rapper friend is killed. Having come from working in a strip club to working for the record label Spanish Moss Records, the best of the best, she deals with all sorts of stresses that come from being watched, envied, and loved by the public. There's sex, there's drugs, there's death—the book is hardcore and powerful, not to mention the sort of book that just sucks you into the reality of Louisiana and the creole culture, the drugs, the crazy megastar lives, and the reality of gang rivalries. Having come from there himself, the author knows what he's talking about, adding that extra tinge of legitimacy to the story.
