  3. Read about a real life "DJango" in David S. Cecelski's new book "The Fire of Freedom: Abraham Galloway and the Slaves' Civil War" I have to admit, I never heard of Galloway prior to posting the review of the book about his life. How many more figures from American history would be just as, or even more, inspiring? So much energy has gone into a debates over fictional characters like Django, fueled by a tweet, and regurgitated by our so called "news" sources that actual people like Galloway go virtually unknown... Happy Black History Month.

  6. MEET THE MAN BEHIND THE MUSIC “In the end, I am saved by the music. I have no idea what twist or turn the rollercoaster that is my life will take. I am saved by God’s gift of love. If through my words and music I can pass on that gift to the readers, I am the happiest man on earth.” — R. Kelly Beyond the chart-topping hits and the controversial headlines, in Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me, Robert Sylvester Kelly lays bare the true life story of a complex soul and a musical genius.

  13. I recently blogged about the fact that most authors who post links to Amazon do not take advantage of Amazon's affiliate program. http://aalbc.it/oWrxtM Someone tried to explain to me why authors do not take advantage of it, by saying they just don't care and are not interested. This seems so illogical because Amazons commisions can be 7, 8% or more depending upon sales -- often exceeding even the author's share of a book's sale. But based upon the acitivity on my latest Blog post on the subject, there seemed to be little interest in the whole issue. Of course the more sophistciat
