New fiction tells an exciting tale of power and street smarts – PR Web


Author Michael Reed announces the release of the first volume of “Two & A Quarter” (published by Xlibris) series. In this book, readers are taken to the streets of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where outsmarting the law enforcement is crucial in living a life of crime and murder.

Troy, Nick and Jeff were always around each other since they were kids. Having been raised in a world of drugs and pain, they were forced to become men before their time. Readers follow these three friends as they navigate life’s challenges block from, hood to hood, in this tale of power and street smarts. Real loyalty is everything to them.

“(I) just wanted to do something positive,” the author states, when asked what inspired him to write the book. “It’s relatable to many people’s lives growing up and right now. It’s about teamwork.”

An excerpt from “Two & A Quarter” reads:

But what Troy was seeing within his so-called friend was greed and also selfishness, and that’s one of the number one things that his family just couldn’t deal with, especially if they all wanted to remain free men out here in these streets of Baton Rouge or anywhere else.
