5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
Daddy Rich, author of Mack’s Revenge
Meet Big Mack, drug dealer from Marion, Indiana. Just one year out of prison, this aspiring rap artist is a realtor by day and drug dealer/cold-blooded killer by night. He’s funding his rap career with drug money. He’s tryin be a rap star. The only issue is this: he lives what he raps and he raps what he lives.
The fact that Mack is gaining success in the music business pushes the Task Force over the edge. They are determined to get him. Fed up with being outsmartied, they come up with a plan to bring Mack down for good.
They set him up in what is written to be the biggest cocaine bust in Grant County history. Once in jail, they think they got him. With the help of the Panamanian drug cartel, the jail can’t hold him. And once Mack is free… All Hell Breaks Loose!
This urban tale has all the elements of a best-seller: drugs, money, graphic violence, murder and erotic sex scenes described in explicit detail all wrapped up in a fast-paced plot that will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next. Once you pick it up, you won’t put it down!
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Mack’s Revenge?
Daddy Rich: FREEDOM is my inspiration. I feel that if I get my book out there and sell good enough that I will make enough money to hire an attorney.
JP: What sets Mack’s Revenge apart from other books in the same genre?
DR: What sets my book apart from others is the way it is written. It’s written the same way I talk. Most of the books in the game out there now are written from east coast authors and our slang is different.
When I bring my Midwestern slang into the game, it makes my book authentic. My book is raw. I didn’t allow it to get watered down in the editing process. It’s gritty, and it’s street.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to Mack’s Revenge getting out to the public?
DR: Go Hard! You have to promote your book. Facebook, twitter, etc. You have to have a presence on all of the major social networks. Get your name out there doing press releases and interviews. Stay connected, and don’t stop.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish Mack’s Revenge?
DR: It takes me about four weeks to write a book. I trap myself inside the book. I only take breaks to sleep and eat.
JP: What’s next for Daddy Rich?
DR: I’m currently publishing Urban Image Magazine. It’s a magazine. Our tag line is “A Sophisticated Representation of Who We Are.” The magazine is designed to entertain as well as give a more positive and accurate reflection of urban society.
Patrice Elizibeth Grell Yursik of the Miami New Times says Mack’s Revenge is “…simply an amazing and complex story. A great read.”
