  1. Sharing News About My Book/Interviews

    I have my Blog: www. pininthetush.com, I believe you have checked it out. And thanks for adding the interview!!
  2. Thanks so much for the follow!

  3. Troy, still trying to figure out how to utilize this site. For instance, here is a link to an interview done with me and John Henderson regarding my book, my father, Eddie Green and his professional and personal relationship with Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. Is this the proper place to relay this information to the community? http://jackbennypodcast.libsyn.com/podcast
  4. My AALBC.com Facebook Fan Page is Dead

    Thanks, Troy.
  5. My AALBC.com Facebook Fan Page is Dead

    Troy, when I sign in to your fanpage on Facebook I see this pinned to the top: I'm signing off social media for good. If you would like to reach me my email address is troy@aalbc.com (from March) Then I see more posts you have made in July. In my Facebook page I only typed in aalbcfanpage (as opposed to the link you shared when askig for feedback) and your site was first on the popup list. Hopefully I will remember that I sent this message to you and I will remember how to get back to see if you replied. I seem to have a problem with finding the threads I was in.
  6. I am probably the one missing something. This technology boggles my mind. I am trying to set up my site (pininthetush) or a site where I can post speaking engagement dates, testimonials, reviews, links to my publisher on the landing page. Can I do that on my AALBC url?, which I just recently realized I had. Something like chopeclark.com's website (just an example). I will look into finding a different "design" for the .com I now have. Thank you for taking the time to help me out here.
  7. Hi there. As for me, my only reasons for not joining in on this site is that I forget. Yes, I do log into Facebook but usually to see family stuff, and I have only recently begun to "tweet". I am in the process of learning how to market my first book so I am also concentrating on getting speaking engagements and writing new articles and I blog. Yes, my publisher set me up on Amazon which I have no problem with. My book writing project was originally about inspiration, and I happen to be a Black person writing about a Black man. But I did not initially set out to specifically reach Black people. So I have become a part of the White mainstream social marketing media. And once I started trying to connect with Black book stores and what not, I became disappointed. Once I found AALBC I was delighted. But I have found that I have to remind myself that I need to engage with others on this site the same way that I do on my Blog, and on twitter. I want to have a site on AALBC separate from my blog and I intend to work at gaining a presence on AALBC by commenting on more discussions. Thanks for AALBC Troy.
  8. As a newbie writer, I am still trying to wrap my head around selling books to Black audiences. My book published in July 2016. I went to the most prominent Black bookseller in our city and before I could finish introducing myself the owner told me "I am not interested." I was trying to figure out a polite way to ask why when he said "And I am not going to answer any questions about why." Besides the fact that I was crushed, personally, I was surprised to be turned away so abruptly. Possibly booksellers like this man could be a part of the problem for Blacks who want to sell books. My book is on Amazon. As a person who has written a book, that's good for me. As a new writer who happens to be Black, I wanted my book to be inspirational to many people, but I chose to begin my marketing strategy by approaching a Black owned book store. Bad idea! So how can I be a part of the solution? I am thinking of submitting an essay to a new upcoming Newsletter dealing with these types of issues. Perhaps that will help.
  9. OCTOBER 27, 2016 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACTS BOOKS@BENOHMART.COM ELVAGREEN123@OUTLOOK.COM Elva Green, Daughter and Biographer of Eddie Green, Legendary Black Filmmaker, Movie Star, Old Time Radio Icon, and Composer, In Person at Book Soup Albany, Ga. – BearManor Media announces Elva Green appearing at Book Soup in West Hollywood for the release of Eddie Green The Rise of an Early 1900s Black American Entertainment Pioneer by Elva D. Green. A good man is hard to find, as the famous 1919 song by Eddie Green attests, but the pioneering Black filmmaker, movie star, Old Time Radio icon, and composer established himself as the living portrait of all that is admirable. His legacy now inspires a whole new generation. Discover Eddie’s rags-to-riches story as told by his daughter, Elva Green. Her years of research through major archives have unearthed long-buried revelations and enlightening images that testify to one man’s determination to rise above all obstacles and triumph against all odds. See him through the eyes of the press as he journeys through five decades from Vaudeville to television and then into the stuff of legends. Ms. Green will be signing her book at Book Soup in West Hollywood on November 9, 2016 at 7:00PM PST. Book Soup is located at 8818 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, California. In an era when Black entertainers struggled to gain a foothold in show business, Eddie Green starred in a silent movie, starred in one of the first Vitaphone talking pictures in 1929, starred on Broadway, headlined at The Apollo, appeared memorably in two of America’s most popular long-running radio series, and rivaled Oscar Micheaux for honors as a pioneering Black filmmaker. From poverty to prominence, Eddie accomplished more in his short life than most people could dream. Talent and desire propelled Eddie on stage, over the air, and into films with Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Hattie McDaniel, Thomas “Fats” Waller, Jackie “Moms” Mabley, and James Baskette (Uncle Remus in Walt Disney’s Song of the South), Eddie “Rochester” Anderson, and Louise Beavers. His close friends included Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., Mantan Moreland, Attorney Walter L. Gordon, Jr. (attorney for Billie Holiday), Clarence Muse, and Maria Cole (Nat Cole’s wife). Eddie’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find” was recorded by Marion Harris, Sophie Tucker, Bessie Smith, Louis Prima, Cass Daley, Frank Sinatra, and many others. The sands of time may have buried his name, but Eddie Green’s laughter still echoes around the world. Thanks to this first-ever biography, a good man is no longer hard to find. Illustrated with rare photos, many unpublished. Appendices include songs written by Eddie Green; the radio programs and movies in which he appeared; the movies he wrote, produced, and directed; rare script excerpts featuring him in his most famous roles as Eddie The Waiter on Duffy’s Tavern and as Stonewall The Lawyer on Amos ‘n’ Andy; and excepts from Jubilee radio programs. ##### Available exclusively from BearManor Media in hardback and paperback editions, and soon to be released in an ebook edition.
