Chicago, June 18, 2007 — Meta Smith, author of the blockbuster novels Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Rolexxx ClubÃ¢â‚¬Â (Warner Books, July 2006) and Ã¢â‚¬Å“Queen of MiamiÃ¢â‚¬Â (Warner Books, March 2007) is the latest author to sign with entrepreneur, multi-platinum selling rapper, and New York Times Bestselling author 50 CentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s G-Unit Books.
Dubbed the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Queen of Bling FictionÃ¢â‚¬Â, Smith was selected to write for G-Unit for her sophisticated voice and cinematic depictions of urban life. The versatile and dynamic author has penned a riveting street novel, a gripping psychological thriller, and a steamy erotica novella in the span of her short year on the literary scene. The former model, who has appeared in over a dozen hip-hop and R&B music videos, is also a popular DJ who spins at the most exclusive nightclubs in Chicago.
SmithÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s title Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeavenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s FuryÃ¢â‚¬Â will be released in November 2007. The gritty page turner which the author describes as Ã¢â‚¬Å“a neo-noir tale of betrayal and deceptionÃ¢â‚¬Â chronicles the life of a good girl turned bad when she becomes caught in the middle of a bloody drug war. Smith takes a departure from writing about the South Beach club scene and pens a tale set in her hometowns of Chicago and Gary, Indiana. Filled with intrigue, suspense and lots of drama, Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeavenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s FuryÃ¢â‚¬Â is bound to be another best-seller for G-Unit.
Smith joins street lit superstars Nikki Turner, Noire, K. Elliot, KÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Wan, Mark Anthony and Relentless Aaron on the G-Unit Books roster. For more information visit: www.metasmith.com or www.myspace.com/metasmith.
