  1. Are you coming to NYC for the Harlem BookFair? Brooklyn Book Festival? Also, Sisters Uptown bookstore, the last Black-owned bookstore in Manhattan. Someone sent me info about your book Silenced.


  2. Thank you, Lorraine! I won’t be at those events, but I will be at other events throughout the year.


  3. Hello Nicole Givens Kurtz,

    It was a pleasure meeting you at this
    Saturday’s Black Speculative Arts Festival in Atlanta.
    In response to our discussion for
    position openings & illustration
    collaborations, I have
    attached my LinkedIn website. As a prior
    author/owner of
    Tribal Metal Spear-it Publishing,
    and one who possesses a strong
    interest in content innovation, I’m
    positive that you’ll
    find my background suitable to your

    For the previous 22 years at media
    powerhouses such as Turner
    Entertainment, AT&T/Lucent, & Scholastic Book
    Fairs, I successfully facilitated and
    distribution of more than $1 billion in
    product, along with
    responsible coordination of safety
    measures. Over the course
    of these tenures, I sustained a missing
    inventory record of
    less than 0.5% and saved companies
    millions of dollars.

    As you see further from my experience,
    there are other areas that meet your
    qualifications. I would
    appreciate the opportunity to discuss
    them with you, and
    will call you next week to see when we
    can meet for
    discussion on how I may contribute
    further to your company’s
    dynamic growth. You’re welcome to
    contact me at

    Albert S. Johnson-Bey
    Inventory Specialist, Media
    Coordinator, & Customer Rep. at your Immediate Service
    Metro Atlanta, GA
    Ph: 404-414-2086
