Book Details & About the Author
Troy Spry is a certified life and relationship coach, speaker, author and “Reality Expert”. A graduate of Winthrop University in South Carolina, he studied Psychology and officially began the study of human behavior. Troy started a blog called XKLUSIVE THOUGHTS as a way to invite the world to share in the many interesting thoughts and conversations he had about life, love and the lessons they’ve taught him.
His popular blog, books, conversation parties, webinars and seminars, inspirational morning messages, lunchtime discussions, and personal one-on-one relationship and life coaching helped Troy grow from a blog, to a brand, to movement. He holds a position as an official staff writer for the award-winning website BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com where he was recently the recipient of the “WRITER OF THE YEAR” and “WRITERS CHOICE AWARD.” Troy also has had the pleasure of writing for celebrity matchmaker Paul C. Brunson, has had his work featured in JET Magazine Online, and was chosen to be a guest blogger for the Steve Harvey Act like a Success Conference.
He is a dating expert and contributor for DatingAdvice.com, DigitalRomance.Com, and VixenDaily.com. Troy has been listed as a premier coach by BlackMenRock.net and has had the honor of being a featured guest on HuffPost Live!
Troy’s blogging has taken him to new levels as he just released his new book “Teach Me How To Love: Why What You Don’t Know Will Hurt You” which is the second volume after publishing his first E-Book entitled “Teach Me How To Love: A Man’s Journey Toward and Through Marriage.”
Troy’s mission is simple: to inspire individuals to first become better people so that they can become better mates, create better relationships and ultimately help to build better communities. He is a firm believer in the fact that you must live life intentionally and on purpose!
Outside of his writing, coaching, and speaking endeavors, Troy enjoys playing sports, traveling and spending time with his wife, friends, and brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. It is time with those closest to him that keeps him grounded, relatable, and humble.

How the Blog Tour Works
The blog tour will take place February 8th through the 21st. We have provided the following writing prompts which are directly aligned with the book’s message of the importance of learning the lessons of love.
You can give a review of the book (if you’ve read it), or write about one or more of the above themes. The official book launch is on February 7, 2016 with pre–orders available starting January 17th, 2016 followed by a launch party in Charlotte, NC on March 13th, 2016, but you can still contribute posts through the end of the month. The sooner you link your post, the higher up on the blog tour page your post will be. You do not need any special permission to blog or use any of the graphics on this page (we just ask that you use it for the purpose of the blog tour and/or to talk about Teach Me How to Love).
