Upon its release, Priceless Inspirations was on the Barnes & Nobles bestseller list and has remained a fan favorite since the beginning.

The book chronicles Toya‘s life as recorded in her diary and features a foreword written by Toya’s ex-husband Lil Wayne who calls her an “amazing woman” whose “strength is love” and says she is “stronger than the mind can imagine.”

Speaking on her book Toya released a statement saying,

“I try to address what really goes on with young women and girls that grew up in similar situations as I did:  everything from family drama, to love and sex, motherhood (including teen pregnancies), and domestic violence.”

Toya recently married her soul mate, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, in a fairy tale ceremony in Atlanta.

She is gearing up to write more books, has a profitable boutique, Garb, in her hometown of New Orleans with plans to open the online component to the store in the coming weeks.
