by Alan Collins

We did it!

Thank you!

My book, She Stole My HR Promotion! written with my co-author Allison Quinn, is now the #1 Bestseller on Amazon among the new releases in the “Human Resources & Personnel Management” category.

I am humbled and extremely grateful to everyone in HR who has acquired this book, endorsed it and contributed to this achievement.

This unforgettable novel will take you on a fictional journey into the world of Drake Williams, an HR director who gets passed over for a promotion…and absolutely does NOT see it coming…and loses this job to a person that shocks him beyond belief!

Drake has every right to believe he will promoted to be the new Vice President of Human Resources at the NuStyle Foods & Snacks Corporation. 

He’s practically a shoo-in for the job.

He has everything going for him.

He knows his stuff in HR.

He’s a workaholic.

His boss is his biggest advocate.

Everybody knows and respects him.

And, besides, the firm desperately wants an African-American on the firm’s top leadership team. And he’d be the first one.


Drake is blindsided and shocked beyond belief when the CEO screws him over and instead names an unknown outsider to the job, a mysterious and savvy white female — who now becomes his boss!

He is further blown away when their relationship quickly takes an unexpected turn, spirals out of control and now threatens his job.

They both become engaged in a roller-coaster, winner-take-all corporate power struggle featuring romance, racial tension, lying, deception, betrayal, snitching, discrimination, potential sexual harassment, workplace gossip and corporate politics that risks blowing up in Drake’s face, tearing his world apart and ruining his career in HR forever,  if he doesn’t do something about it.

But what does he do?
What lessons does he learn in the process?    
What would YOU do if this happened to you?
How does all this apply to you?

Well, I guess you’ll have to dive into these pages to find out.   

One hint: The powerful secret he learned about advancing his career in HR is revealed at the very end of this story.
