"Goldie: The Hand I Was Dealt," a new book by King James, is a wellspring of inspiration, showing how one man played the game of life with the cards he was dealt.

"Everybody is dealt a particular hand in life, by the powers that be, and there's no opportunity for a reshuffle," says King James. "We must play as well as we can with the cards we are given, and Goldie's story is an inspiring example of how that can be done."

Mike "Goldie" Jacobs, through his high school and college years, wins some and loses some. In "Goldie: The Hand I Was Dealt," he tells of his experiences as only he can, taking readers on a roller-coaster tale of money, sex, drugs, education and love. Through his trials and tribulations, though, he climbs a steep learning curve, emerging a better man at the end of it all. Written in an edgy urbane style, "Goldie: The Hand I Was Dealt" is a shining new example of hip-hop literature.

King James, a first-time African-American author, runs MooreSuccess, Inc., a boutique publishing firm that looks for new and inspiring authors. "Goldie: The Hand I Was Dealt" is available for sale in both paperback ($20.00) and e-book ($15.00) versions on the web site at http://www.getmooresuccess.com.

"MooreSuccess is constantly on the lookout for inspirational literature of a high quality, books that will move people to think about the way they live their lives," says King James. "I hope my book will set off a chain of such literature, and that Goldie's story will strike that chord in its readers."
