Book Description

Shae Byrts is a hot commodity in her hood. Using her body and beauty has earned her the title, “Project Queen”. She’s got it, and was born to flaunt it! She’s determined to break away from her abusive mother, and leave her impoverished lifestyle far behind.
When she begins dating a notorious drug dealer, she assumes all of her problems are over. She couldn’t be further from the truth. She finds out that beauty is only skin deep, and all of the money, spinning rims, and glitter, can come at a violent price.

Editorial Reviews


A huge page turner! Project Queen and author TD Patterson are a breath of fresh air. This book is pure cinema, LaShae Byrts is a charecter no one will ever forget. Write on sister, write on! --N. Booker, Freestyle Media

Man, TD Patterson tells it how it really is in Project Queen. I have met some LaShae's in my life, let me tell you! LOL! It's amazing how Project Queen captures reality! Dante' Feenix has done it again and found a hot one in author TD Patterson! --Logan Steffon, Body & Soul Tour

TD Patterson's writing style is unique in every way. I'm proud to be a part of this novel. She is destined to be a star... remember I said it!!!! --Dante' Feenix, Marketing/Events Manager ZANE 08'

2.0 out of 5 stars What A Prize Being Queen Of The Projects..SMH July 29, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Typical Cute girl, banging body in the hood story. With the brains of a inchworm, I did not feel sorry for Ms. Project Queen, 90% of her problems she brought on herself. Its like seriously who is this dumb?

I got what I paid for it...All $.99 cents of it. It also took a odd turn towards the end. I wont do like some of these idiot reviewers and spoil the story but what happened to the insurance money?

The author seemed to have a good idea, then she got tired or lazy and let someone else finish writing it. Also I sent the book to my aunt and she emailed me and said it was too stupid and ghetto for her.

I really enjoyed this book. It has a Christian message but I would not consider Christian book because some scenes are graphic. Overall a really good book. Hope there is a part 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Message January 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a very good read and hit very close to home. It also had a powerful message that should be passed to others. What you do in life can have harmful effects to others as well as yourself. I would really like to read more books from this author.Also I think a lot of the younger generation should read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Skeletons in the Closet August 18, 2008
Most people have secrets that they don't want exposed. LaShae Byrts had more than enough that she didn't want to share. Known in the projects as the beautiful girl with the to-die-for-body, LaShae made even grown men fantasize about being with her. She was a high school drop out forced to baby sit, care for her six-year-old twin brothers and clean for the entire family. She was treated worst than Cinderella by those who should have expressed love and concern for her.

Living in the projects, she was accustomed to drug dealing, shoot-outs, drama and jealousy from her ghetto neighbors. Even though living in these kinds of circumstances was hell, LaShae's home life was worst. Using her beauty to get money and jewelry from the neighborhood boys, she finally meets a drug dealer. Her dreams of having money are becoming a reality. Unfortunately, living as a Project Queen is not as good as it seems.

T. D. Patterson has written a novel that depicts how easy it is for teenage girls to go astray without the right influences, care and love. Although this book is written for adults, the insight and the simple writing style would have been a better message to deliver to teens without the sex. PROJECT QUEEN is an okay read.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay July 7, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am use to a more sophisticated level of reading and this book was rather juvenile. What I liked about it was that she wasn't your typical I am fly and fabulous all the time prada chick. She knew she was beautiful, yeah, but she also had low self worth because of her abuse. She also had a strong commitment to her family. I am 36 and this book was made more for a 17-18 year old. The whole posioning reminded me of Flowers in the Attic (which i read when I was 12).

Since I am a sucker for romance I will say this was an okay book it had a happy ending and not to much volience and over the top soap opera style action flick writting.

3.0 out of 5 stars It took awhile but ended up being a good book October 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay - the premise looked interesting and the price was certainly right (free lol). I dont regret spending my time reading this book. It's not the usual genre that I read and it was nice to step outside the box. However, I could not feel any empathy for the lead character LaShae because she was such a nasty, vile b*&^h in the beginning of the book. If you cannot connect with the lead character then you have trouble sticking with the book, simple as that. I'm glad that I gave it a lot of time to start getting good because as I said, it ended up being a nail biter. The drug dealer, Dana had to be the best character in the book along with the insane mother...but truth be told we dont really see a whole lot of depth in any of the characters except Shae. That being said it really doesnt matter because she says one thing one minute and the next minute she is doing something completely opposite.

I think there could have been much more done with this story and it could have been 5 stars...but where the book dragged a little in some places I felt it moved at a cyclone's pace in others not really letting the tension build before letting you in on the surprise. It was as if the author was hurrying up to finish for some reason. Would I give Project Queen 2 a go? You bet I would but only if it shows up on Pixel of Ink as a freebie :)

2.0 out of 5 stars proofread October 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story Project Queens starts off with the writertellingthis story. it continues througout the book. the first rule in writing is show don't tell. To much was told. Also, the writer needs to hire a proofreader. There were to many missing letters or words and various words that were mispelled.
