Writer’s Thoughts

Here was a sneak peak of what will be revealed in the new book coming out Sept 19. Make sure to grab a copy. Also make sure to grab Ric’s first book called “To Be The Man.” I find it very intresting that we are able to see what our Role Models and idols go through. They may be a celebrity but deep down inside they are regular people just like us. The struggles and the ups and downs and everything including the facts of life.

I am personally thinking about grabbing me a copy of the book and finding out more about Ric and his life.There is a chance I might be able to relate to him some way.

I currently read AJ Lee’s autobiography and I related to her in so many ways. Just maybe Ric and Charlotte will do the same. Do you excited to read the book? What would like to be covered? Feel free to comment below and let us know what think.
