"Those who create for the love of art are
consistently getting better. But those who
create for the love of money, those guys
are forever getting worse."


Tracy Ellison, the sizzling heroine of the bestselling Flyy Girl, returns in this razor-sharp sequel from acclaimed author Omar Tyree.
From hard-knocks Philly all the way to glamorous Hollywood, Tracy Ellison has truly walked the walk. Now twenty-eight years old and a major movie star, Omar Tyree's uncompromising Flyy Girl is returning to her East Coast roots. As Tracy drops in to reconnect with friends, she seems on the brink of a happily-ever-after existence, armed as she is with over-the-top beauty, unstoppable attitude, and new mountains of cash. But is attaining success and happiness really as simple as Tracy makes it look? As she begins to address the uncertainties of her youth, Tracy's homecoming stirs up a string of difficult questions about past loves, ambivalent family ties, and her artistic ambitions.
Crackling with honesty and passion, For the Love of Money is a triumphant continuation of the adventures of one of contemporary fiction's most outrageous young heroines.
