This just in. Please forgive the PR-speak . . .

I hope you’ve received the copy I sent of Omar Tyree’s novel PECKING ORDER (Pub date: September 23). New York Times bestselling author Omar Tyree is the winner of the 2001 NAACP Image Award winner for Outstanding Literature in Fiction and the 2006 Phillis Wheatley Literary Award for Body of Work in Urban Fiction.

PECKING ORDER is Tyree’s last work of fiction as he expands into other genres with an upcoming business book and children’s book.

Omar Tyree will be in Charleston for an event on Saturday, October 18th at Books-A-Million (2150 Northwoods Blvd) @ 7:00 PM to discuss and sign his new book.

PECKING ORDER is the thrilling story of an ambitious young accountant, Ivan David, who jumps into the high stakes business of celebrity party promotions in Southern California.

But as the ridiculous amounts of money and power begin to pile up — leaving a trail of shattered dreams, broken hearts, and empty bank accounts — Ivan is forced to ask himself: How much is enough?
