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. Includes A Teaser Chapter From Carl Weber's Upcoming Novel Player Haters
